Might be only available in certain countries, just like how Paramalat was seen on F1 cars for decades even though it wasn't available in the UK.


With it being a British brand I’d have expected it’d be available in the UK though?

Amazingly not, which is why I’m amazed I’m yet to see a can in the wild so to speak. Can always buy it off their website though :lol:

Slightly OT, but I want to buy my Father In Law a nice model of this seasons Ferrari car. Do any of you know a reputable place?

I've had a google, and there is a lot out there, ranging from £5-£5000!

Never looked into buying one myself but will this years cars have actually come out yet? I’d have thought the majority of them would come out towards the end of the season, especially the ones that are more affordable (I’ve looked at the ones that are a few grand, they do look amazing though!).

Edit, looks like the MiniChamp ones (which seem like a good compromise on price/quality from previous years I’ve seen) are only up for pre order on a site I’ve just looked at. Imagine the Official F1 Store will have them at some point as well, I’ve used the site a few times over the years with no issues.

I used to collect Minichamps cars, still have a bunch of them in a box somewhere, were bloody expensive even then (£20-30 each in the late 90's).

Formula E season finale today. If you missed yesterday's race it was a stonker! There are 4 or 5 guys in different teams who are in contention prior to this double header weekend and the race is manic through the field. From memory Jean Eric Vernge is the gold black DS car, Buemi in the silver Nissan, Di Grassi in the green, red, white Audi car, Bird in the purple-y grey and Evans in the Grey/Green Panasonic.

Full race below (scrub to 1h5m for race start - race is only 47mins long).



Highlights below if you're short of time.



Finale on tonight on youtube.

What time does the final race start? Was around 8 ish last night wasn’t it so I presume a similar time for today. Still Vergne’s to lose really, not scoring any points in yesterday’s race certainly hasn’t helped him though.

Been watching the F3 and F2 this morning, been threatening with rain on and off at varying parts of the circuit so if it hangs around it might spice the F1 up! They are really good races to watch but one thing I really hope is that the next lot of F1 regulations have ground effects to help with cleaner downforce allowing for closer racing.

Expecting another relatively easy Mercedes 1-2 today, hope Red Bull and Ferrari put up a good fight between their 4 drivers though. Should be good between the Renaults and McLaren as well.

Nice fight between the Mercedes here, don’t see how this strategy is going to work for Ferrari, should have just started on the mediums like the Mercs and Red Bulls.

I think the key words there are Ferrari and strategy.

Yeah it they’re going to try something different at least split them to edge your bets. Good showing from Gasly this weekend, certainly looking more on it.
