Two things cannot physically occupy the same space. It’s no different for Formula 1 race cars. That was the case on Sunday at the 2021 British GP at Silverstone. While some have said the 10-second penalty for Lewis Hamilton was sufficient, not sufficient… Fat mouth Christian Horner – the original whiny little bitch – complaining til the sun came down… Now-F1-commentator Jolyon Palmer does an excellent job of breaking down the incident. Take a look and judge for yourself.
A full -size mock up of the 2022 Formula 1 racecar per regulations was revealed yesterday. And FOM did all of us a favor by applying 2021 liveries to the mock up. Is it just me or does it look a bit too much like Indycar in many respects? Not a fan. Bring back the cars from the mid-2000s, such as the Renault R25!
After what feels like an eternity, the LA Auto Show is finally returning to the LA Convention Center (for real, this time) in November! We’ll update new vehicle reveals at the show as information comes in, but do get your tickets in the meantime. Or check out Revdcars’ coverage of the 2019 show – the last PHYSICAL show before the pandemic hit – for old times’ sake.
Not only did this spoiled brat of a Russian oligarch break the unspoken “gentlemen’s code” by passing other drivers on the outlap of qualifying – because he’s the spoiled little shit that he is – but he spun in Russian ruble-bought Haas into the wall at turn 3 and attempted to blame it on “avoiding Mick” when he was nowhere near his teammate. A liar, a sexual predator and a shitty driver. #SayNoToMazepin
Gene Haas – I hope you’re getting your money’s worth.
I’m not old enough to have fully enjoyed the beyond-this-level-of-reporting that Murray Walker delivered to the English/BBC F1 fans… but have watched old race videos, recent interviews and the like to appreciate what this man contributed to Formula 1. HIs love for the sport and everyone involved is surely never to be matched. You will be sorely missed. Rest in peace.
So… How do you call yourself an American team with the Russian Federation flag draped all over it? How can you call yourself a Formula 1 team when you’ve already foregone the entire 2021 season with no development on the calendar? Is it any wonder why this sorry excuse for a team – which gets its chassis from Dallara and pretty much everything else from Ferrari – continues to be a backmarker? Fuck it being an “American” team. Hope they crash and burn and disappear from F1 altogether.
Really, you couldn’t help but to cheer for this guy. Super friendly demeanor. Homies with Russell, Lando. A good driver. Humble beginnings. All the ingredients for fans to gravitate to this Thai-English driver. A flash of brilliance here and there, but enough fuck ups to make the cut throat Red Bull Racing org rethink the driver line up for 2021. With the spin and resulting last place at Imola, well… he’s done. He just had to cock it up yet again. At this point, might as well count either Perez or Hulkenberg into the RBR seat in 2021. A good try, Alex. And good luck.
