    I’ve never seen anything like that - that was utterly, utterly mad. What a race!

    Ah , now that is a quality example of a terrible F1 car. Apparently at the German Grand Prix Michele Alboreto got so irked at it during practice that he came into the pits, got out of the car and asked the lead designer to take a stroll with him. He proceeded to take him to the Williams garage, point at the car and say ‘Look! That is what a Formula One car is supposed to look like!’. Around the same time, the FIA made a somewhat hamfisted attempt at banning driving aids from F1 mid season. That Lola was announced as the only legal car, not because they’d removed all the gizmos they had on it, but because it had none of them to begin with. @carred - yup, looks like it is. They’ve found a loophole that the legal dimensions of the front wing only apply to the mainplane the endplates. The additional planes seem to be able to be whatever, so looks like they are trying to wash most of that air inside the front wheels. Not sure if it’ll work, but you can bet that all the other teams will be studying it carefully at Barcelona next week

    Actually, talking of cars with noses they didn't normally run... McLaren and Senna tested this at Monza around the time of the 1990 Italian Grand Prix:

    Yes, you are both mostly correct and slightly incorrect. As a reward, I gift you both this picture of the 1994 Pacific Ilmor PR01 in its rare, hardly-seen low nose configuration that they ran in the final few races of that season. BEHOLD.

    Fun trivia quiz: which team had a similar diamond-esque livery pattern in the early/mid 1990s?

    9 is my favourite Final Fantasy - it very much sticks out from the two that preceded it as it's very much medieval wizards 'n dragons stuff. Of the Final Fantasy core levelling/progression mechanics, it's also reasonably simple too; each character can buy or find new weapons and armour during the game, and if you use or wear that stuff for long enough you learn the attacks and abilities they carry on them. No combining of different magic crystals (7) or absorbing magic and assigning to various stats (8). Felt like a proper nod to the earlier games in a lot of ways. It's lovely, and I would argue it's a pretty decent hop-on point for the series. The music is wonderful, the tone shifts between slapstick silliness and poignancy without overdoing either and it has got a ton of really memorable, unique places that you visit.

    Apparently that's a 'one-off' livery. Imagine they'll be running something more familiar once it all kicks off
