  1. 2020 Williams testing early I see
  2. well that was a satisfying couple of mins
  3. yeah Hulk isn't going to Williams, that seat is going to the highest bidder (I think it'll be Latifi as well) Kubica does still have some decent personal sponsors so he'll probably end up as 3rd/development driver somewhere (Racing Point would be a good bet) Hulk might have an agreement with Ferrari if Vettel throws in the towel at the end of this year.
  4. Did pulled pork on the traeger yesterday, turned out awesome. Got a 5lb cut of pork butt, cut it into more manageable pieces, trimmed the excess fat and used a basic Montreal steak style dry rub then put it in the fridge overnight. Stuck it on the traeger at about 8am: Took it off about 4 hours later, wrapped it in foil and poured about a cup of apple juice into each foil pouch then stuck it back in: Left if for another 6 hours or so and took it out and let it sit in the foil for about 45mins. Turned out amazing, literally just fell apart Delicious!
  5. Least surprising news ever. Guess they never came up with that 2nd sponsorship payment
  6. Yeah doesn't say a lot for the junior program really. I think Toto is bigging Ocon up and saying how great he is in the hope that another team (prob Renault) take him on. Another scenario I can see is Verstappen moving to Merc if it's offered to him - that would cause a domino effect in the driver market for sure. Edit: I'm coming across a proper Ocon hater here - nothing against him but he hasn't shown superstar qualities IMO, he hardly put Perez (who is a solid driver to be fair) to bed at Force India
  7. That was kind of my thinking. I'm sure he's already doing sim work for Ferrari/Alfa and he's obviously going to end up driving one of the red cars one day unless he completely goes off the boil. Get him in an Alfa, have Kimi mentor him a bit, get used to the way things work in a slightly lower pressure environment. Yep If Ocon was the future of Mercedes he'd be driving that Williams. Kubica hasn't exactly been a good benchmark for Russell but he looks to be a pretty solid driver.
  8. Here are my predictions for the 2020 lineup, probably hilariously inaccurate but thats part of the fun Quick note on Ocon - if he really was a future Mercedes star Toto would not be saying that they'll release him if he gets another offer. Merc: Hamilton, Russell Ferrari: Vettel, Le Clerc Red Bull: Verstappen, Albon McLaren: Sainz, Norris Renault: Ricciardo, Ocon HAAS: Hulkenberg, Magnussen (for the lolz) Toro Rosso: Kvyat, Yamamoto Racing Point: Stroll, Perez Alfo Romeo: Raikkonen, Schumacher Williams: Bottas, Latifi
  9. The fact that they promoted Albon over Kvyat makes me think Kvyat has options for next season (possibly Haas given the Ferrari connection). He might have only wanted to take the step up with the condition of a drive in the senior team next year.

    wow, what a match that was
  11. Vectrex pickup was probably my best bargain as well. Was mid 2000's I think, paid either 10 or 20 quid for a boxed console with 4 boxed games. Gave it away before I moved to the US

    Great result for Opelka!
  13. I made a mini Amiga of sorts a couple years ago using a Raspberry Pi and Amibian, there was a thread for it somewhere. It was a bit of a faff to get everything going but nothing too difficult, it has classic workbench and WHDload with a full set of games. Works pretty well, I still use it today EDIT: Found the post here: Has a video I made of my setup and some instructions
