Fed up talking videogames? Why?

Who do you think will be the WDC and WCC winner for the 2021 F1 season?

Better to do so at MVC, as members there get things a bit cheaper.

Guarantee they'll blame their fuel supplier.


Well they can’t be at blame after all :roll:

Or the rules not allowing them to iron out whatever issue it is that caused that particular engine to go (being serious, take it reliability enhancements are still allowed?).

McLaren are unveiling their car at 7pm this evening, presume it’ll be being streamed somewhere if anyone is interested. Looking at the team gear I presume it’ll be pretty similar to last years livery though.

They're all largely the same car too so don't expect anything amazing.

Judging by previous years they don’t even show off the car we see in testing anyway, mainly just to show the livery off and sell team merchandise.

While i know the cars will largely look the same, i am looking forward to seeing the 2021 liveries (especially Aston Martin's).

Well the rear floor looks a bit different, as do the endplates on the front wing. Livery wise it’s almost identical to how they ended last season. I’m only really looking forward to Aston Martin.

Aston Martin have announced their car unveiling date, 03/03/21 at 15:00 :toot:

This is the only one I’m actually excited for, the livery should be amazing :wub:

Have they agreed to mix up qualifying with Sprint Races this season?

That's what I thought, someone was trying to convince me today that they had agreed to qualifying Friday, Sprint Race Saturday, Reverse Grid Sunday.

Thought it sounded batshit

A few days ago there were some articles about teams broadly supporting the possibility of sprint races this year. It's the reverse grid qualifying proposal which seems to have very little support amongst teams and drivers.

I’ve seen that they’d like to implement different formats over the weekend but Liberty wanting to do it and actually being able to change the format are very different :lol:

The best way to produce mixed up grids was the 1 lap shootout quali format, it used to work wonders on occasion as even the best drivers would make mistakes and not get the perfect lap.

On a separate note, Albert Park's layout is being tweaked too...

So they’re taking a track that’s already very hard to overtake at and making it even trickier? We’ve seen some good passes into turn 9/10 in the past too.

A london race will never happen imo don't want a mechanic to get randomly stabbed during a pit stop
