  1. There are reports that his demands are pretty high. He's reportedly after a 3 year deal and wanting a share of the team's prize money ontop of an additional increase in salary. One newspaper (the Express) is even claiming he wants to be able to chose his teammate from 2022 onwards. I'm sure most of that is journalistic guesswork and probably varies between slightly true and total bullshit. But if all of that were true and I was Toto, I'd politely decline and give mr. Russell a call.
  2. It absolutely was deliberate. There is a contractual obligation to give a date to all races that have a contract, even if it is clear that they won't be able to host the race. So knowing that they would almost certainly not be able to race at several venues, they needed to pad out the season knowing that the reality would be less packed. In other news, here's a much better view of the Alpine livery than the one i posted last week
  3. I cannot for the life of me see Monaco or Baku happening this year.
  4. Confirmation of Abiteboul's exit : https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/154524/renault-boss-abiteboul-to-leave-team
  5. Barrichello raced against 2 generations of Magnussons I think. Edit, no he didn't. He retired in 2011. I don't think anyone who raced Jan also raced Kevin.
  6. Kimi & Alonso also raced against Jos Verstappen.
  7. Looks like Cyrill Abiteboul might be out (or moving to a different role at least) at Renault. Edit: In other Alpine news, here's a sneak look at their livery... source: https://thejudge13.com/f1/formula1/breaking-leaked-imagery-of-renault-alpine-f1-livery/
  8. They are considering starting the races on the hour again as well as moving the start time for the European races forward an hour. I'm big time in favour of both of those changes. https://www.racefans.net/2021/01/06/f1-races-will-start-on-the-hour-again-in-2021/
  9. Season opener in Australia looks set to either be postponed, or possibly swapped with Bahrain. https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/154434/2021-f1-australian-gp-set-to-be-postponed
  10. Massively, massively deserved. Huge congratulations to him. I cannot wait to see Ted stumbling over himself in his first interview with Sir Lewis. “Lewis, no, I mean, sorry mr Hamilton, sorry sir Hamilton, no, sir Lewis, or is it Sir Lewis Hamilton? No, it’s just Sir Lewis, that’s right, it’s sir first name unless you’re a lord and then it’s lord last name, yes that’s right, anyway, sir Lewis, so how was your Christmas?”
  11. I actually really liked the survival elements. For me it meant I was planning excursions rather than just going off exploring. It made the experience much more strategic for me as well as making the base building more important (for the desalinisation plant). But of course one mans fun is another's pain in the arse
  12. Can't imagine they had much choice. I've got a feeling they are in a situation where they if they don't run him, they can't afford to run at all.
  13. Sounds like the last 2 places on the 2021 grid and will be announced tomorrow morning. Redbull look set to confirm Perez and Mercedes are going to stun everyone by announcing they have resigned Lewis Hamilton.
  14. Thanks for that actually, you've made me decide to give it another go. I got half way through the first episode and just couldn't take anymore of it. I really wanted to like it though and I seem to be in the minority in disliking it.
  15. Yeah I've not been able to connect since the last update a week ago. Been playing solo ever since. If you raise a ticket, they reply saying it's a known issue and the mark the ticket as resolved. You then get an email saying "how did we do?" with a yes or no link and a feedback box, if you click either, you get a response saying "sorry, this ticket is now closed so you can't add anything further to it". That is sadly how Forza support has always been.
  16. Half Life 3!!!!! Ahh god dam it maybe the next one.
  17. Every time that ‘World Premier’ card comes up, I think it’s going to be half life 3.
  18. Edit: On reflection, this website maybe jumping the gun a tiny bit... Russell will be driving for Mercedes this weekend according GP247. Hamilton will miss the race. https://www.grandprix247.com/2020/12/10/ruslle-in-for-abu-dhabi-hamilton-still-unfit/
  19. Mercedes will have a new livery for this weekend according to Toto Wolff ''We have a very special surprise for our team members in Abu Dhabi this weekend. Saturday and Sunday we will be driving in a slightly different colour scheme with everyone's name on the car to honour the enormous commitment and determination of everyone in Brixworth and Brackley. Everyone has worked hard this year to raise the bar in this enormously intense season and we hope that this gesture will really show the appreciation we have for everyone involved," Wolff says in Mercedes' statement.
  20. I should have included links to those videos in my post. Laziness on my part
