Re: Rumour: Kimi signs new two year Ferrari deal

Has Kimi not been on single year deals for the last two or three years? Who was the last driver racing in F1 after they had turned 40 too? It just sounds crazy enough to be true, all to be announced the week after Kimi wins from pole in Spa.

Re: Security questions

Even without having a Facebook page myself (assuming they did delete it as requested some ten years ago), I imagine they would be able to sell a list that contains my mothers maiden name to anyone willing to pay. Anyone that has shared their porn star name will have given the identity thieves a head...

Security questions

I just had to register an online account for a pension scheme I was enrolled in. After the usual password malarkey they asked for three security questions - among the usual ones like your favourite place, first pet etc, they had something along the lines of "Which historical figure would you must li...

Force India saved

Excellent news, on the whole. Great for their staff, their creditors and anyone that didn't want to see a reduced grid. Hopefully they can bring some performance to the car now if the stories are true about them having upgrades on the drawing board waiting for the funds to allow their production. Th...

Re: Ricciardo to leave Red Bull at end of 2018 season

Ricciardo had almost become the new Webber for Red Bull. They seem to be paying Max for what he is expected to be rather than what he has done; it doesn't reflect the points tallies yet. Melbourne aside, I guess Max is selling more tickets and merchandise. Daniel's complaints in Austria didn't bode ...

Re: French GP 2018

I know a much better set of words to the French anthem. If I was given a choice of three plausible options I doubt I could pick out the actual words, but it has to be the best tune among anthems. Maybe it will get a few extra plays if Ocon or Gasly get in to a top team? Cue the shock win for Haas a...

Re: Le Mans 2018

My bet is that Alonso will win - well he is in the joint best car by a mile - and will then give up F1 for Indycar and a punt at the 500. He would probably do better at Indianapolis with a car, like all the other competitors. Being powered by a pole would probably be more reliable than the Honda en...

F1 theme music

What are people making of this year's official F1 theme? When I first heard it I was a bit underwhelmed, but a few races in and it really started to feel right for F1. It is night and day better than the previous two stings that they would use to launch the official broadcasts. Using it again at the...

Re: Welcome back babblers, its Tuesday

Just saying hello again... we moved house last month, which was a giggle a minute. The legals took forever and we had more than a few days of thinking it would all fall apart - that was with a chain of just three properties. It takes an inordinate number of hours to pack up your home and twice as lo...
