Re: Pre-season Test #1

Day three looked as much fun there as it was in much of the UK. I can't think of another F1 session affected by snow during the time I've been following the sport. I can think of sessions where I have felt about as cold at the track as it was when I went outside earlier, but that's Silverstone in Ju...

Re: race today

Mexican ePrix is on this weekend. 21:30 on Spike, I believe. Probably best not to tune in too promptly unless you enjoy the sound of Vernon Kay braying like a donkey.

Re: Welcome back babblers, its Tuesday

Honestly testing is about as chatty as I get. Once the season starts I usually get more sullen than talkative! :furious: :D If we had 20 weeks of testing I'd "rule" of this site... It is all a lot quieter these days anyway. I think it will take ages for anyone to break the 1,000 posts mark, even if...

Re: Pre-season Test #1

Steady lap count for the Toro Rosso today and not far off the headline pace. Must be the best day Honda have had Fixed it for you. :thumbs: I stand by the "since their return". They had a few good days in the late 80s and I can even recall one that worked out alright for them in 2005. That is about...

Re: Welcome back babblers, its Tuesday

Haha! No, I know more curse words than people :D Anyway, I'll soon be recreating my "Help me get to 10,000 posts" thread...I set goals in life...sad goals...but they are goals... :P To be fair, you are already the fifth most prolific poster on this site. A few more days of testing and you'll be nea...

Re: Pre-season Test #1

Have I remembered correctly, thinking that the tyres are roughly one step softer this year, so a medium is similar to last year's soft? Then there are the new extreme compounds added to the range too. Seeing so many cars using medium tyres initially made me think that it's just conservative initial ...

Re: Welcome back babblers, its Tuesday

I would definitely try out skeleton bob if I got the chance. At least you can't fall over, after the start anyway. You can do a slow start, laying down and pushing with your feet and that has got to translate to lower top speeds as well... maybe one change of trousers instead of two.
