    2016 Formula 1 Season Thread

    He's the engine chief, so, probably not. I think they're working on poaching James Key from STR.

    Lauda accuses Lewis of lying and confirms he wrecked his room in Merc hospitality

    Many different (mostly incorrectly translated) versions of Lauda's statements about in English media, so living and working in Austria myself, I watched the video on ServusTV and made a transcript...

    I remember reading that he was offered to return to the show but refused to.

    Nobody is rooting for it to fail, but the fact remains that they removed the defining element of what made Top Gear so unique. It used to be quintessentially British to the point of exaggeration, and now it features an American and a German with an atrocious accent. Also, it is just too obvious...

    How is a show supposed to work when the two main presenters quite obviously can't stand each other? If they were brilliant on their own it could perhaps work, but one of them shouts more and louder than a hooligan at Old Trafford and the other one couldn't be more wooden if his name was...

    Adelaide seemed to work just fine and this circuit is very similar in concept. Could you guys just give it at least the chance to run at least one race? What are you going to say if the race turns out to be an absolutely good one?

    It happens at all races. Certain camera angles are not used to hide that grandstands are empty and they drape a few buildings to make for better TV pictures. I don't really get all this hate against that race. For once we don't get a bland track in the middle of the desert and people are up in...

    Well, as always things are comically exaggerated, but in principle he's right. Nobody wants to see 'American TV' where even married couples sleep in beds with L-shaped sheets, so that she can be covered up to the neck. But European TV gets oversexed to be honest. There is no need to see bare...

    Never. We all know that it happens anyway. The whole point of <insert word>-gate is that something comes out that people didn't know yet. We all know that FIA and FOM are corrupt.

    Why should they? Azerbaijan is a European Country. Their territory spans two continents: Europe and Asia and they are therefore a legit European country. They have as much right to host a European GP as Russia and Turkey have. Nobody made a fuzz when the San Marino GP was held in Italy or the...

    Chris Evans - Hold or Fold?

    Chris Evans was a disaster and will probably be told about it by the ratings of the next episode, but even if they replaced him, which they sadly won't, this incarnation of Top Gear won't work. The main point of TG was its sometimes over-boarding Britishness. It were three blokes trying to...

    Barweiler to be precise. That's where Frikadelli Racing is based and her Ranch is near Barweiler too. It was good to see that they gave her a somewhat better introduction than on the main show where she was, well, just there. I've been a big fan of hers since her first 24h N?rburgring wich...

    Asian Sports associations refused to accept Israel upon pressure from Arab countries. However, Israel always considered itself European anyway as that's where most of its inhabitants came from. Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Kazachstan all have minor parts of territory in Europe and therefore...

    Yep, it is. They compete in European championships. It's not always a strictly geographical decision. What are Turkey and Russia supposed to do, who both have parts that are geographically in Asia? Actually, for both, the majority of their territory is geographically Asian, yet both are...
