    When this was debated after Felipe's first retirement, there was talk that Williams' booze sponsor required a driver over 25. Kvyat and Wehrlein are both under 25 still, and the team still has that...

    Of those, who has the most financial backing? Kvyat I'm guessing. So that would be another point in his favour.
    I guess Wehrlein might come with an engine discount from Mercedes.

    I think the problem there is that merely waiting will not achieve anything. You'll be waiting forever. The female F1 winner will never come, unless more girls are encouraged to step onto the first...

    Ericsson is linked in some way with the new owners of Sauber I believe. Kaltenborn's departure from the team was reportedly over her refusing to favour Ericsson as they wanted.

    It would be, but it's never going to happen as long as the numbers at the entry level of motorsport are so low.

    As an example I just looked through a programme from a BTCC meeting this year. The...

    I expect if you compared the number of men who've had similar success at the same amateur levels, you'd find those women still represent a tiny proportion. Girls are socialised from a very young age...

    Big bonuses for the Ferrari pit crew this month I hope. A 2.1s stop for Vettel vs 2.7 for Bottas, and that might have won them the race.

    Rubbish performance by useless Bottas, Lewis would have beat Vettel by at least 6 tenths of a second there.
    Probably conspiracy by Mercedes, sent Lewis out on cold tyres to make sure he won't take...

    Presumably increasing rpm means raising the fuel flow limit, as that's the current effective rev limit. And hopefully also the total fuel for the race, otherwise it'll mean even more overt fuel...

    Another tidy job by Ocon, 16 points finishes out of 17 races for him.

    Lewis is 66 points ahead with 75 on the table now, all but home and dry.

    Or they could move the white line. Might be easier. If the stewards say it's OK to drive there, make it part of the track. Problem solved.
