    Yup but as always rather than give up, the teams have ploughed the money into ever-decreasing suspension gains in order to make passive suspension behave like active suspension.
    The ferrari v12 sounded amazing, as did the Honda v12.

    What amazes me is how they can even consider bringing in regulations that hamper overtaking. It beggars belief.

    Allow very carefully regulated ground effect, extend braking distances and reduce aero wake. Not f**king difficult is it?

    Look at Indycar, they don't have the trouble with dirty air that we do in F1. As always, it's clear the lunatics are running the asylum.

    Apparently Sergei Sirotkin is to be announced as Williams' second driver tomorrow.

    Sad to see Williams resorting to this, but apparently Kubica just wasn't fast enough during the Abu Dhabi test with the 2017 car.

    Travesty. Sounds like other sports along with F1 have made/are making the same decision. More job cuts..

    It's because some old lesbians who call themselves feminists can't handle women who are prettier than them getting positive attention from the opposite sex. Therefore grid girls are now declared sexist and a symbol of male oppression and must go. No mention of the fact that these girls have now had a legitimate source of income taken away from them by people who are offended on their behalf, but unfortunately that's the victim culture we now live in.

    They make it sound like the girls are forced into it against their will. As above, it's a job/career for them and they likely do very well out of it. PC culture gone mad!

    I'm assuming they'll in turn be getting rid of cheerleaders in other sports then, or maybe making female beach volleyball players wear a pair of comfy slacks and a long sleeve top.....

    Haven’t seen much build up to the season this year...

    But you’re right, can’t believe sky have got Rosberg in!
    But anything’s better than listening to Eddie Jordan tbh

    Shit race. Terrible track, and the cars are even less capable of following each other now. But hey, as long as they have a new logo eh? Talk about priorities....
    And who at Sky thought those new graphics were a good idea? They look like they were designed by kids, for kids. I mean, at the end of Q1 they have big letter flash up "DRIVERS IN DANGER" - ooooooohhhhh I wonder who it'll be, will it be a Mercedes or a Red Bull who will drop out? No. it'll be a Sauber, a Toro Rosso, or whichever shit pay driver Williams have in this year. Bag of shite.

    wtf:
