Re: 2017 Formula 1 Season Thread

I get that, but McLaren should be demanding more from Honda. I don't know, maybe I see everything in black and white terms when there are shades of grey to be seen. But I think it would be a shame if he left the sport like this. Surely a move to another team might be best for him? Maybe Force India or Sauber.

Don't think he would go to Sauber, seeing they will be using the same Honda engine from 2018.

Wow! Alonso in the McLaren Honda made "best of the rest" in qualifying - have they sneaked a different engine in there?

Not bad for a Honda, dont think he will do more than 20 laps though before it goes tits up!

Re: 2017 Formula 1 Season Thread

And some points for Sauber, now only McLaren are pointless... all went wrong at the start for Alonso ... maybe JB can bring them some luck

Re: 2017 Formula 1 Season Thread

Well that was a boring race, shame Lewis had a bad weekend!

As for the Indy500 very dramatic with all the crashes and with Alonso leading for a fair way!

---------- Post added at 20:50 ---------- Previous post was at 20:47 ----------

I spoke too soon!

Alonso out of the Indy 500 due to.............. yes you guessed it a Honda engine failure!

Re: 2017 Formula 1 Season Thread

A circuit with no overtaking spots, not sure if there were any DRS zones, but completely useless if there were

Re: 2017 Formula 1 Season Thread

I believe, and this is only from playing the F1 game on the xBox One, there is one DRS zone and it is along the pit straight.

Funny how now Ferrari have cottoned onto the Mercedes design and are putting their spin on it, they are cheating. Yet Mercedes never cheated when they were dominating? (Not saying they were, but if now Ferrari are winning and are being called cheats, why wasn't the same accusation leveled at Mercedes, Red Bull, McLaren etc when THEY were the dominant teams?)

I believe they should remove the Monaco from the F1 race circuits and replace it with another circuit that would allow over taking.
