Re: Rumour: Kimi signs new two year Ferrari deal

The story today is that Leclerc is back to being the preferred choice. Maybe that was what Vettel wanted to talk about after qualifying...

Re: Monza

I didn't think Monza could top the qualifying session - the top three all improving with each run, breaking a fourteen year record every lap (I suppose that record will change annually for the next few years at least now). The gaps at the top and throughout the field were tiny. The race was about as...

Alonso vs Red Bull

Alonso has supposedly asked for an apology from Red Bull after they denied offering him a drive for 2019. Marko has been quoted saying "We were negotiating with him in 2007 or 2008. His demands were very tedious back then." Horner also said "We had an inquiry from Flavio Briatore and from Liberty Me...

Re: Force India saved

Oh, so the other teams have agreed they can keep positions from previous years and it is just the 2018 points to date that have gone. As ever, the only predictable thing in F1 is who can win.

Re: Force India saved

So the cost of adding two almost random words to the title of the most randomly named team on the grid was to throw away all constructor points earned to date (I know that legally this was due to them acquiring the assets of the company, rather than being able to buy the company itself). Why they ha...

Bose bumpers

One thing that niggles with me each time I watch C4's F1 coverage is the bumper ad with the two people riding a bus while watching F1 on a phone, each wearing some Bose wireless headphones. I always find myself wondering if it is actually possible to attach two wireless headsets to a single device? ...

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...
