Fed up talking videogames? Why?

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

He did. Must have been an Alpine in the ass or something.

To be fair, it was always going to be a big ask to do some of the flyaway events so soon.

I suspect Bahrain will be ok though as they had no issues in hosting last time, and following that, i suspest the empty calendar slot will mark the beginning of the european season with a race at either Imola or Portimao.

EDIT: Just seen that Bahrain will go ahead, and Imola will host the second race.

They may as well have just stuck to mainly European tracks again this year, some of them were always going to be a big ask. Australia has been pushed back to November but who’s to say that will go ahead?

I also read that Portimao will likely be the third round, and it just needs to be finalised.

Leclerc has got the rona now. The cynic in me thinks they're getting it on purpose in the off season so there's a greatly reduced rate of being taken out during the season.

I had the exact same thought when I heard Leclerc was infected. If that is what they're doing, they're morons.

Considering how widely the virus affects people you’d have to be really stupid/naive to get it on purpose.

Looks nice with the use of the French flag colours as Accents to the black but I'll wager. There will Kimoa sponsors on the final version

I’m just really hoping their final livery will have a similar blue to what is on the current Alpine A110 as that is a lovely shade of blue.

I think there's too much black on the car at the moment (if they're not careful it'll just look like another Merc), but then it is only a testing livery so hopefully the race design will feature more red/white/blue.

An F1 race on an icy track would be so amazing.
Obviously won't ever happen but they could use a frozen lake and have almost unlimited run-off space and I think it could kind of work.
