    Formula One - 2018 Season

    This isnt really segregation though, its not taking away any current opportunities for female drivers, only adding a series that's unique selling point is that its female drivers, because for better or worse a female racing driver is still unusual and a talking point. To spend the money in a variety of places trying to back drivers in different series (as shes says to) wont have the same impact unless you get a driver into the top level, and how do you do that? buy a seat? not going to happen, there are already more way rich boys racing on someone else's money than there are seats, they'll just up their bid.

    I feel like it’s a necessary evil, yes women should have the same access to top level motorsport as men and shouldn’t need their own series and ideally talent should be the only factor of who drives, but women are not making it to the top.

    I think Hamilton has pushed him to the edge trying to keep up, Seb is always a good chunk faster than Kimi, a known fast driver, so he is performing speed wise. He’s made mistakes but all drivers do and a lot of them have been very minor but very costly, it’s only when you compare him to Lewis, who has been amazingly solid in all aspects, that he looks sub par. Verstappen’s attitude is getting a bit annoying for me now, he messes up and clouts Kimi on his way back to the track and then he blames him for not slowing down to avoid him, and this was not in a racing driver excuse kind of way that we are used to, it was genuinely moaning about Kimi, his sense of entitlement is astonishing.

    Both Ferraris had a run on a (as dry as everyone else) dry track in Q3 but they both made mistakes, Kimi’s was a lot smaller so he still got 4th with it but Vettel went right off track. He could still probably have made the second row if he stayed out so either he wasn’t fueled for it or Ferrari miscalculated how long they had before the rain again because they brought him in for new boots when the rain was obviously on its way.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Any people that like me still like physical games, Argos have taken a tenner off already to bring it down to £40

    Films that are good for the soul

    The first Rocky, Sly created such a great character that it’s a shame he went on to be an action hero, Copland showed it was no fluke.

    I thought it was stupidy niave of Bottas to think he would be allowed to keep the win if Hamilton was behind him, after qualifing they were asking him if he would be allowed to win and he said yes and I remember thinking hes either deluded or lying, guess it was the former. He's had a lot of bad luck earlier in the season but also not done anything great to show that he's worthy of a trophy winning car, the only reason he's going to be in that car next year is because he can co-exist with Lewis and if that means moving over now he's out of the champoinshiop then thats what hes got to put up with. Mercedes needed to put a line under the situation a race or two back and tell him he is now officailly supporting Lewis' bid, because that is what they are doing but it seems no one told Bottas.

    I really think these kinds of things should be kept confidential until later in the process. Even if it came out to be completely false, Ronaldo will now forever be a rapist to some. Go through the legal process then if it’s proven true report on it then.

    Yeah he’s only making things worse for himself with his approach, he’s no angel himself so must be rubbing other players up the wrong way. He does get fouled a lot but runs at people so fast and so often that he has to expect a lot of it, he can’t expect people to let him just go past and anything less that a perfect challenge is going to result in him taking a bit of rough. Could be that he’s feeling victimised because he’s the only one that seems to make anything happen for us so the first thing on the oppositions list is probably ‘stop Zaha’. I’m amazed we’ve hung on to him to be honest, be interesting to know what the club value him at.

    When the fun stops, stop. So lap 2 on some circuits.

    At least he's going to have had alot of practice in next years Sauber already.

    Agree, Ferrari are very conservative with Rookies so I can see the safety net of being able to swap Kimi and LeClerc back around if needed being a big factor.

    Shenmue 1&2

    Shenmue was/is my favourite thing of all time, games, films, music, Shenmue always stands above them all as I have such fond memories of playing it when it first came out. I have been saying I would play through them again for years but never got round to it. Didn’t know this re-release was happening until it was out so it was a pleasant surprise. Managed to get the last Argos Xbox one copy in London from Old Street yesterday. I didn’t think it was going to be very good to play as it is always talked about as ambitious for it’s time but aged horribly, and was going to play it for nostalgia and to prepare for 3 next year. But I think it is still an amazing experience, the level of depth and character is astounding, it feels like a real place and time, and it gives you a feeling of freedom that nothing else does. The way that everything has the same level of detail and attention regardless of how important it is to progression stops it from feeling like you have to do things a certain way or that certain characters are more important than others, they all exist to Ryo and share this world with him and if they can’t help him he still knows their name and talks personally to them and they still have a life to get on with as you see them coming home from work. I had forgotten how bad the English voices are but I think of it as these people speaking English when it is not their first language and now it feels fine. My wife recognised it last night and I was surprised by how much she remembered of it, and how fondly she remembers it from watching me play it on Dreamcast, and now she wants to play through 3 with me when it comes out.

    That has to be a worringing sign for Mercedes, they look a significant step behind Ferrari. If Seb and Kimi can have a few clean races they’ll finish 1-2 then Lewis will have to hope for something to happen like crashes, breakdowns or rain just to stay in it.
