I really don't think Vettel will be considered by the top teams, as they have solid driver lineups. And I somewhat doubt he would consider a Renault level team, as his ego seems to remain at a...
I think the world is a bit stir crazy, and we all want all this mess to end sooner rather than later. Most of us want to get back to work, social events, sports, and Formula 1. But we are walking...

Well that won't stop us from speculating that Seb would be tossed to the curb to make room for Lance to race with Charles.
Or will Lance race with Lewis, and Seb and Charles go to Merc?
Well written piece Nitrodaze.
What the future holds we don't know, and now we have the COVID-19 and another big wrench in the picture.
And thanks for that photo of Massa on the podium. ...

Who saw this coming?
The new regs could certainly shake things up, as all the teams will be finding the balance and handling characteristics from essentially scratch again. I suspect the cooling issues will also be all...

Well that sucks. Being that we have time on our hands, do we try to find another pickems type thing?
The big thing that the new regs will help with is following and attacking. The wake behind the current winged cars is just a massive plume of dirty air. The ground effect cars will cut this down...
In F1, current downforce has a lot to do with the flow over the front of the car. Since this flow is grossly disturbed when a car lifts off the ground, all aero goes to crap regardless once a car...

To further the above, Spygate started when a copy shop employee reported the copies being made. If you aren't going to use or distribute the information, why would you need copies? But Mclaren...

What actual breach of regulations would you punish them for? I can't find any that state it is illegal to be accused of cheating.
If waterboarding doesn't work, should the punishments be...

It seems to only hold up in a court where the decision of "guilty" was determined before the fact. Call them cheaters, take away points, money, apply fines, etc...... but never prove guilt.

I just hope ZDK is up and running in time for the season opener, and that we have as many people (or more) than last year.
I'm all in for ZDK, I guess I'm just looking for alternatives in case...

Hey guys and gals. I know we did the interforum thing for a couple/few years at the ZDKF1 site, and had a lot of fun. But we never found out the final scores for the interforum stuff for 2018 or...
Team: Loco Americano F1
Driver 1: Lando Norris 9 million
Driver 2: Nicholas Latifi 2 million
Reserve: Marcus Armstrong 1 million
Chassis: Aston Martin Red Bull Racing RB16 18 million...
Well other than the top 3 still being the top 3, I'm not sure I've come to any really solid conclusions after the second test days. Breaking things down into sector times and accounting for weather...

I see both sides on this issue. I have to wonder if the FIA actually found anything that could be deemed "illegal" at all, since they really haven't disclosed anything. But they found something,...
At this point all we really know for sure is that the time Bottas set is about a half second quicker than times set last year. And that lap is short of the track record. Essentially, they are still...
I guess only time will tell if the DAS system is allowed. Personally I'm on the fence and think that it likely won't be legal. But they might have found enough loophole in the rules to get away...
Forget the liveries. Show us what you find of the photos that highlight the changes in the new cars. A lot of packaging changes going on with the top 3 teams, with major changes in sidepods, noses,...
Well I just hope this year someone can challenge Merc. I don't mind doing poorly in FGP if the racing is good!
And thanks for keeping the FGP going!

I always look forward to the start of the season.
Until we have some testing, it's all a guess. And with the way Merc and others often sandbag, it's still somewhat a guess.
But reports suggest...
Without a doubt Merc and the drivers have made a lot of impressive records. Overall I think statistics shows them as the most dominant team of Formula 1 when adjusted for time in the sport. And in...
Varsha, Hobbs, Matchett.
Best combination of F1 coverage in my lifetime IMO.
I hope he fights through this. His expertise in racing coverage over the years has made several forms of racing...
I've always seen this more as a roll of the dice. If the deciding factor is the "luck" of the safety car, it's just luck. In this example without a safety car the strategy of going long doesn't...
