    Default F1 2019

    Not long to go before testing gets underway and we learn who’s had a good winter adapting to the new reg’s ...

    Anyone else seen the news that Liberty Media may be looking to sell F1? Apparently they’ve not hit their objectives ...

    I wonder if this is why Bernie was seen at some of the tail end events of last season ... and who would bet against the old fox buying back at a significantly lower price than the reported $8bn he sold it for?

    Very interesting, i certainly wouldn't put passed the Wiley old fox Bernie.

    Now if they were to bring back "topless" grid girls Liberty Media viewing figures would multiply 10 fold.😳😂

    Even if Bernie buys the circus back what can the spectators exspect? No "topless" grid girls (I'm afraid ). Would racing be more interesting? I do hope so. Under Bernie there have also been some seasons of dead-boring races. I really hope it to be a three-lane finish.

    It's "pants down" on the 18th in Barcelona, at least for the reliabilty aspect. Last year, McLaren was proven wrong, I hope it to be the same this year for Renault too (they're argueing that their engine is better than the Honda engine).

    ^ They're hardly going to say it is worse than the Honda engine, are they!

    I have been contemplating going to the Chinese Grand Prix this year with it also being the 1000th Grand Prix.
    Anybody else going or thinking of going?

    Not likely. Probably just stay home in a lit locked room for weeks on end.
