    Formula One - 2019 Season

    People should listen to this week's Autosport podcast; it's an interview with Mark Williams, who worked on this car. They go into what went wrong and it's really fascinating stuff.

    NHL discussion thread

    Hoping the Stars can bounce back and tie up the series against the Preds tonight. Sadly I have a feeling that from the moment we let them equalise in game two when we could have held on for 2-0, they've gotten their rhythm back and now are going to be incredibly difficult to beat. Been a decent season, though. Really pleased that Heiskanen looks every bit worthy of the third overall pick we took him with a few years ago.

    Motorspot chat - No dull F1 though

    Actually, that's something I tend to prove relatively good at too. The last time it was noticed wasn't karting but at a 12-hour enduro simulator race I was part of a few years back around Montreal. A few drivers there were... er... not familiar with the track, the LMP2 car we were running or the use of a steering wheel and/or brake pedal, but I got into a little groove where I could see what people were going to do or were likely to do ahead of me and managed to position the car to sail through just fine. Avoided a fair few bigguns that way!

    Question for anyone who's played The Golf Club 2; I had a round in 'Career' yesterday (inverted commas as it's a bit of a vague career mode) and it seemed like you could potentially have a friend join online for tournament rounds etc. Is this the case? The game is pretty decent but good lord is it a complete mess when it comes to the menus and knowing what's going on!

    There's actually a copy of it on eBay at the moment The History of Formula One AFAIK it's never been released on DVD. I'll take a look around Racing For Me later on.

    Yup! Still don’t know how Mansell didn’t clang into Piquet on the last lap. Also have distinct memories of Larini losing it and the car launching itself over the kerb at the corner onto the back straight. Australia 1988 was the first race I saw (the re-run on Sunday Grandstand). Watched most of 1989 live apart from Japan and Australia. Adelaide ‘90 was the first time I was allowed to watch one of the fly-aways live!

    The whole 1,000 thing does make me feel old, mind. I still remember watching what was deemed ‘Grand Prix 500’, which was the first night race I was ever allowed to stay up and watch live. I was... 7 at the time, I think.

    The answer to the 1957 question is quite possibly the most underrated F1 driver of all-time. Shame he retired before the rear-engined cars came in as he'd have suited them right down to the ground.

    I always just presumed that he inherited most of his talent from his mother rather than his father!

    I said, in somewhat tongue-in-cheek manner, that I wondered if Bottas had lost a chunk of floor yesterday. Turns out he hadn't, but he did have a plastic bag stuck in his front wing! Caused, seemingly, by the arch-nemesis to Mercedes' second drivers: a gust of wind.

    Apparently a few people are raising eyebrows that Ferrari's front wing failed due to the vibrations caused by a screwed rear tyre. Kind of gives the impression that whatever they are doing, it's quite a 'deflect friendly' wing

    This has been an utterly mad race.

    This, of course, amidst all the rumours that Ferrari are having to protect their power units as they’re a bit troublesome.
