Interesting new street circuit at Baku. Hope they have plenty of fuel for the safety car, because it's going to cover some miles. :)

McLaren still streets ahead of the competition, and all Hamilton had to do was put in a half-decent qualifying lap to ensure his team locked out the front row, then use the rest of Q3 to fight Rosberg for pole.

But, no, he had to go balls out from the off, and finished up binning it without recording a banker lap.

F1: Motorsport for boys. When they grow up, they go to Le Mans.
Why?

Because men wouldn't bow before that runt bernie.

Lower midfield constructors*. Bottom end drivers.

Yes I too expected lots of action at Baku, didn't happen.

Please do record or watch Quest tonight at 8pm for the summary of Le Mans, I'd like to make a convert out of anyone vaguely interested :)

*how many constructors points compared to those of Mercedes? Now I admit I am just screwing you aroundwith statistical analysis ;)

Barky you have 35 mins. Quest (the channel) is free to air on Freeview otherwise it is accessible on sky.

Freeview channel 37, sky 144 and virgin 172

Stats, thank you, Mercedes 258 and Mclaren 24. Hardly the middle of the field? Within the bottom ten percenters.

See how Manor Marrussia, formurly of F1, now Manor, how they did at Le Mans :)

My pleasure Barky, anytime.

There is a quest+1 channel.

Many years ago I think there was an Ecosse Scuderia Ferrari team. ;)

Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes must consult him on who should replace Nico Rosberg next season but warned them against signing a big name like Fernando Alonso.

Sorry Oake for not replying sooner. I feel lewis may have a problem with anyone given his flamboyance and heart on the sleeve.
Is F1 subscription only next year?

I believe C4 have two more years before Sky gets exclusive rights.

Possible 2017 Calendar


Some live races, the rest highlights.

I don't have Sky. Satellite dishes are not allowed where I live. Conservation area.
