I believe that Pirelli are producing tyres specified by the FIA, despite having offered to make them more durable about 2 seasons ago!

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

Zero. Some spectacles on here are tinted very rosey Quite a few actually. 1982 for instance, when Rosberg became champion with just a single win and Ferrari undoubtedly had the best car. Or 1999, when Hakkinen became champion for the second time even though Ferrari, again, had a better car (as was ...

It was the same for Vettel when he was winning. Look at how well he's doing now he's not in the best car !
Hmmm, I wonder how driver championships have been won, when not driving the best car?

I'm not saying that thi...

Re: A-W Meteor NF.14 WS788 Restoration Project

I was going to say that, that was a cracking update but then realised that it may have been a pun to far, so wont mention it :slight_smile:

It looks a lot happier than it did! Also, we have a Baldrick-esque Cunning Plan to get the Rebecca scope looking like it is a fully functional unit... Watch this space! Is it as cunning as a fox what used to be Professor of Cunning at Oxford University? Well, someone was going to go there! :grinning:
