    ...and now their product becomes even more elusive, just like their payment cheques!

    Who wants to bet theyll say the deal with Haas was dune under Rich therefore that company no longer exists we dont have to honour that contract or pay the fine for ripping off whyte bikes logo?

    That tyre deformation is probably just rolling shutter effect mixed with vibration on the kerb. Still a cool video none the less.

    By way of an edit to this, I kinda felt sorry for Sir Frank, who really could have done with a 5-point harness to hold him steadier, rather than the lap/chest road car effort.

    Does this mean the aforementioned 'beardy' has bottled it & sold up (or been strongly persuaded to do so)...?

    It certainly does, although apparently not before Red Bull filed a new lawsuit against him and The artist formerly known as RIch Energy. I'd love to know what it's about, since you can't sue for having a terrible hipster beard.

    I wouldnt be surprised if the RB lawsuit had little merit or was something stupidly trivial and was just adding another cut to the injury list.

    Pretty pleased with Liberty's work on renewing deals with the existing tracks, while new tracks are nice the "classic" tracks are good to retain.

    So, which 2 circuits do you think will get the boot to make way for Ha Noi and Zandvoort.

    Germany and Brazil are my guesses.

    Germany is likely its had dwindling numbers for a while. You have lots of other circuits near by which are better than the current layout.

    Dubai or Bahrain I'd like binned off, probably something Hungry or Spain?

    Going by memory of news articles from a couple month ago, Mexico is likely to get the chop.

    Im mixed about Hungary, it has the potential for outsiders to win.

    Personally
    Dubai hasnt had an interesting race ever,

    France hasn't been stellar and feels like it is punching you in the face with the painted areas.

    Imola isnt the most exciting circuit either but you can overtake

    Bahrain and Australia are both kinda crappy saved by early season slot in the calendar due to team and driver mistakes.

    Sochi is another zzzz fest.

    Its hard to tell which gps are exciting because of the track and which because of circumstance. Brazil, Hungary and Japan have potential for changeable conditions while other circuits have good overtaking spots.
    Some circuits seem good cause of drama brought on for one reason or another. Bahrain last year but ultimately is quite a boring race. Monaco falls into this catagory, like Riccardos win being fairly exciting due to loosing engine power but not surprising as you cant overtake at Monaco

    Well that was unexpected from the Ferrari...

    kinda glad to see the stewards being a little stricter on track limits
    and having Seb sart from the arse end of the grid will make the first few laps somewhat interesting

    Yeah should liven it up, weird HAAS and Alfa don't appear to have been affected. Saying that Alfa were doing stuff to their cars similar to Ferrari. Something isn't behaving. But midfield is very very tight.

    Only Ferrari can defeat Ferrari so thoroughly. Should have seen that coming after they topped FP1.
