Re: F1 2017 season

I've been there past 2 years for practice and qualifying. I'm going to stay for the race this year.

Likely going to Japan in October for the race.

Re: F1 2017 season

So the background to this baku track is the result of painting **** on big sheets then hanging it over old buildings.



Wtf is the point? Speed of the track should be enough to keep viewers attention.

Re: F1 2017 season

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potemkin_village

Quote:
In politics and economics, a Potemkin village is any construction (literal or figurative) built solely to deceive others into thinking that a situation is better than it really is. The term comes from stories of a fake portable village, built only to impress Empress Catherine II during her journey to Crimea in 1787.

The original story was that Grigory Potemkin erected phony portable settlements along the banks of the Dnieper River in order to fool the Russian Empress; the structures would be disassembled after she passed, and re-assembled farther along her route to be viewed again as if new.

in unrelated f1 news, turns out that consummate politician alonso turned down a drive for team braun in 2009 (this was the year jenson won the title in that nifty double-diffuser braun car)

bloke is an absolute master at making god awful decisions

Re: F1 2017 season

Hilarious watching them try clear up this crash.

I have to ask now, is that castle real or some big bed sheets?

Re: F1 2017 season

the red bulls were supposed to struggle a lot at canada/baku/austria due to the track profiles but looked pretty good in canada and have topped both practise sessions in baku. interesting. maybe they've figured something big out

Re: F1 2017 season

lol ricciardo blocked alonso when nando was on a hot lap. they asked nando what happened.

he explained that the honda is so bollocks that throughout practice - and now in qualifying - other drivers keep thinking the mclarens are on slow preparation laps even when they are giving it full beans and so other drivers on slow laps arent getting out of the way like you're supposed to

Re: F1 2017 season

What was that Force India driver [Ocon?] wearing? Was that a Google Glass type HUD lens?

I think it was just this clasp shown at a deceptive angle.
