  1. Coming off the back of a thrilling, controversial season? Riding the crest of hype from all the new eyes on the sport? Heading into a very interesting new set of rules with very different cars we are all really keen on seeing?

    NFL 2021!

    The fact that the Bills are out after that is so, so unfair and yet, at the same time, so Buffalo. That franchise has no luck at all. That game will be remembered for decades and more. Possibly one of the greatest of all-time. A few years ago I desperately wanted my Browns to take Mayfield over Allen as I was convinced that Baker would be the much better QB. Not at all ashamed to admit I got that wrong. That said, I am sure if we'd have gotten Allen we'd have found a way to ruin him too.
  3. Good to see Aston filled that hole nice and quick!
  4. As much as I tried, I could never, ever get used to this thing.
  5. Got the N64 version of this from a really small second-hand games shop in Poole in autumn 1999 I think - actually have really fond memories of it. I didn't complete all that many games back then but I stuck with this right to the end. Always been a bit wary of going back as that generation as a whole hasn't aged amazingly for the most part, but definitely interested in taking a look at the remaster
  6. Yeah this one was tough - only got it as the combination of letters I had left barely spelt anything else. Wordle 207 5/6
  7. I reckon if you are a relatively decent (probably World Champion at least) F1 driver than you could probably buy, drive for 10 miles and then sell any supercar at a profit just because you owned it at one stage and that has a certain element of prestige to it For example, I would certainly pay at least £50 for an Austin Allegro that had been driven by @Meers
  8. Not sure if everyone's already seen this, but it's excellent:
  9. Hopefully Russell can get his elbows out if he needs to. He's a bit of a wildcard really - seeing him up against Lewis is one of the things I am looking forward to the most. Despite finding their continued failure despite their enormous resources somewhat amusing, I am also hoping Ferrari sort themselves out next year too. Having Leclerc and Sainz in the mix rather than scraping the occasional podium would be nice.
  10. I'm optimistic that he'll do well, too. I think he's a bit of a Frentzen in that if he can get in the right headspace (which HHF did by leaving - ironically - Williams at the end of 1998) then I think he will be as good for the team as Russell was. Rumblings from a lot of senior journalists and F1 folk on Twitter (Maurice Hamilton, Ian Philips) that all is not particularly well at Aston Martin and that Otmar paid the price for protecting the staff from Lawrence Stroll's ill-tempered tantrums.
  11. Lovely stuff - cheers for starting a thread @T Pot Was hoping to go to Silverstone this year, but as it turns out I am due to become a father the week after so will have other matters to deal with. Looking forward to this year and especially seeing the new cars.
  12. A fair point about not disrespecting them - there is that ol' saying about those in GLAS houses etc etc... (I'm more proud of that joke than I have any right to be). Oh, and just seen on Twitter that Max is the first World Champion since Niki Lauda in 1984 who never got to race Michael Schumacher in Formula One. That's a bit mad, isn't it?
  13. Nope! As much as I convinced myself I was ready for a break from F1 I’m already at the point in the off-season where I resort to watching YouTube F1 game championships and using obscure F1 cars as my avatar on forums. Reckon some 2022 chat is juuust fine. As for Aston… interesting. I hope they are competitive, as I’d love to see Seb fighting at the front again. It sounds far-fetched but rules changes have sprung some pretty surprising shuffles in the competitive order before so I wouldn’t rule it out.
  14. I think it's the cover the races that Gio can't do reserve duties because he's doing Formula E/other stuff
  15. In Ferrari-related news, they've signed up with Santander again and they've ditched Mission Winnow, although still in talks with Philip Morris as to which way is best to stealth tobacco advertising onto their cars next year.
  16. Doesn't surprise me. One of the most genuinely unpleasant by-products of this season has been the amplification of the social media tribal bullshit that Twitter/Meta/Whatever has been causing across the world in varying forms of life. F1-related Twitter is utterly poisonous these days.
  17. The more I have thought about this over the week, the more I've realised the solution I'd be happy with is the simplest: whatever order the field are in when the safety car comes out, that's the order they stay. Even lapped cars. It's the safety car, not the Spice Up The Race car - it's there for safety.
  18. Pretty dismal, this. England looking toothless and going through their overs at a crawl. Giving off the kind of vibe of a team who haven't got a hope of winning this series at the moment.
  19. So Pirelli reckon the new cars will start next year about 0.5s per lap slower than the 2021 spec cars and end the year 2 seconds per lap quicker. So much for them being three seconds per lap slower!
  20. I particularly enjoyed one race at Silverstone when I watched you both swapping fastest lap whilst I circled in the lead until I decided to troll you both by going Full Rich mix on the last lap and grabbed the fastest lap for myself Really good to see you back around here dude
  21. Quite a controversial and divisive incident, this one. Instead, let's look at something we can all enjoy: A picture of Olivier Grouillard in the 1989 Ligier JS33 Ford. Interesting fact: Olivier Grouillard is @Meers' 17th favourite Formula One driver of all-time, just behind Jan Lammers.
