Tables in the OP should be fluid so they look good on mobile as well as desktop. Anything you want added to the OP just let me know.

You'd have to think that the China race is at risk.  Still a couple of months away so the FIA can probably leave it pretty late with making a decision.  It just depends how much ahead of time personal have to be sent to each race track to sort out the nitty gritty (world feed, misc arrangements) etc. before a decision will need to be made.

haha fuck Alonso. Who would have thought shit talking Honda would come back to bite him on the ass.

 

This might explain why he's now apologising for it

Five years on and in an interview with F1 Racing magazine, Alonso reflected: "It came from a place of frustration and maybe I should not say that, but I didn't say it in the TV pen or the press conference.

"I was talking to my engineer in a private conversation [which was broadcast]. It was not meant to be public.

"But the engine was very bad. The first year in Jerez, in four days we did seven laps."

Rule 5. I take it that data analyst's can continue to pour over rakes of information and that it simply means that a nut and bolt mechanic is sitting around scrathing his or her balls waiting to make a raft of changes to the car? or do they just have more teams working in shifts fettling the vehicle?

Officially they're not allowed to do anything.

 

In practice, they don't exactly have people camped in every hotel room.

Well it's worth knowing, you can see someone looking at that and thinking a seperate team on a different shift could fill any void. If you make it so they can't fiddle with the car for 9 hours straight it's no longer a grey area.

Rumours that there will be an announcement very soon of the Chinese GP being cancelled / rescheduled:

It makes sense, that's a massive circus to bring into town that really needs to know pretty soon because of shipping schedules.

You worry for their finances with how few sponsors are on the car and how crash happy their two drivers are.

Gene Haas doesn't really need sponsors.  That's why they took the Rich deal when even Williams wouldn't touch it, it was a freebie but the team is here to promote Haas.

This reminds me that Branson started a team from scratch. He sold it after a year didn’t he? How does that work? He must have lost a packet on it.

Has anyone tried the official F1 streaming service? Although it's not officially available in the UK as technically it's available on free to air TV, a VPN with an American or German accent seems to fool it...

Seeing as Sky is £70 a month and F1 is the only reason I keep it, I'm interested to know if this is a viable alternative.

I don't think he ever put much in, it was always a branded Manor Racing.

You tried the old "I'm cancelling unless you discount" phone call? That's How I got the package above.

I read on here somewhere that they've wised up to that and only act once you cancel? But yeah, once I work out how to watch F1 without them I'm going to ring up fully intending to cancel unless they make with the discounts! (I'll probably go for SkyQ too if they dangle a big enough carrot)
