    I guess that’s what got them off a harsher punishment, cos after he reacted to the “stay out” it would have been dangerous to try and change course again, as wet grass and sharp turns really don’t mix.

    It's a bit of an obscure regulation which Brundle seemed to think only applied if you cut over it in the other direction (still out on track and cut it to go into the pits). Here's the exact wording: d) Except in cases of force majeure (accepted as such by the Stewards), the crossing, in any direction, of the line separating the pit entry and the track by a car entering the pit lane is prohibited. I assume Ferrari are arguing about the "crossing, in any direction", whilst Mercedes defence would be he wasn't entering the pit lane as he crossed the line, as evidenced by him not ending up in the pit lane; you can't be deemed to have been entering something you didn't actually enter, so the rules about crossing the line don't apply.

    Is it just me who can only understand about one word in ten from that Renault guy they’re always talking to?

    Though luckily he’s not playing the game, and putting his foot down!

    Taiko Drum Master: Drum 'N' Fun!

    Probably just a matter of practice to get the technique, but using the joy cons to drum at thin air really isn’t working for me. Registers the wrong sort of hit far too frequently, and also loads of false hits (often thinks I’ve drummed again when lifting the imaginary stick up again after doing a hit). The joy con aspect is a novelty which doesn’t really work based on my preliminary findings, so it needs be drum controller or nothing for me (never got into button mashing on a standard controller for rhythm games!).

    My take is Hamilton seems more sensitive to car set up (and how that's working with the track and conditions) than most other drivers. Bottas gets 95% of the maximum possible performance out of the car every week, whether it's all working properly or they just can't get everything right. If Hamilton feels at one with the car he can get 100%, squeezing every single bit of possible performance out if it, pushing harder than anyone else would dare; if all the drivers were in identical Mercedes when everything's dialled in to perfection he'd still wipe the floor with the lot (other than maybe Alonso). But if something's not quite right it knocks his confidence and he'll only get 90% out of it that weekend. He doesn't know how to push almost as hard as he can., if he doesn't feel comfortable giving it absolutely everything he holds back too much. And he's aware he's doing that, but can't still dial into that 95% zone and beats himself up over it instead.

    The story now seems to be he ran wide because the hydraulics failed immediately before the corner.

    I think it usually goes that almost everyone could mathematically still win with two races to go if they managed a couple of perfect scores, but no one has come close so far!

    I wasn't at all suspicious until Kimi freely admitted he was at fault. No driver ever admits they're at fault. Even the most slam-dunk case against them gets no better than "it was just a racing incident, I don't see a need to blame anyone".
  11. I think they said they had a five season arc planned out, which I suppose doesn't necessarily mean the studio had guaranteed they'd fund all of it.

    Pokemon Go

    Glad you mentioned it here. I saw a shadow this morning but just assumed it was another new mon who'd be sticking around for a while. Went out and caught one just now.

    Pokemon Go

    Spoke too soon! No Yellow takeover yesterday, but a weird occurrence as someone knocked out just my Pokemon overnight. The rest of the line up has stayed the same (for sure; includes a mon of my brothers and a really weak Sentret), except for a new edition who’s replaced my Snorlax. Could be a random person defeated one then gave up, but I’m kinda suspecting somebody with dual accounts just made space for himself.

    And Game seemed to have switched off their Streetpass points now too (at least in Norwich), so there's really not much point lugging it around any more

    Pokemon Go

    This is working out very nicely; each morning I've been waking up to a Red gym (my colour) with one Pokemon in it, so add one of mine. It then remains a Red gym until early evening when some Yellows kick it out - more or less earning me the full whack of coins - then at some point between when I go to bed and when I wake up the Red guy clears the gym out for me to add to again in the morning
