    Formula 1 2020 (Will Contain Race Day Spoilers)

    I think Max and VB will get a good tow off the start into Turn 2 and may well take the lead. Lewis is on the wrong tyres, so will almost certainly have to stop first and go onto the hard compound for the remainder of the race. Unless, the pile up in Turn 2 causes a safety car or red flag. Could...

    Ex Mercedes Management cars

    There's nothing 'secret squirrel' going on as far as I know. Mercedes staff can lease Mercedes cars at a very reasonable rate from Mercedes Fleet Services (or whatever they are called) based in Milton Keynes. The staff have the cars for a few months, and must do no more than 8k miles. The cars...

    M-B Engineers seem to be getting prettier 😁

    Taking comments out of context and then being offended on behalf of others that may or may not be offended. What's that all about FFS? Political correctness has its place, and that is not flippin' everywhere...

    Can't tie a reef knot!! Just can't get the staff these days. Good luck to her I say. She's not the first female engineer and won't be the last. Not all of them are as good looking, but then few men I've worked with have been oil paintings. Doesn't make a whole bunch of difference when you're...

    Just one day to go before I pick up my new to mw C250 AMG Line Premium Plus Estate.

    Carl Benz tagged our windscreen too. My son in law's Mercedes windscreen was tagged by somebody called Gottlieb Daimler... :)

    Close shave. Drive on ramp broke

    Have had a similar looking set in my my garage for at least twenty-years. Last used them a couple months ago doing some work on the Mazda. Never really considered they might fail like that. Yeah, scary!

    C-class servicing

    It probably (almost certainly) has 204k on the data plate. Mine does. The 'K' is for Kombi which is the German equivalent to estate car. The S in S205 is I think for station wagon, the American derivation of estate car.

    Spitfire flyover.

    Yes, I do mean an English Electric Lighting, thanks for the clarification. I'd forgotten that the F-35 (?) is also referred to as a Lightning. Saw more than an EE Lightning an air shows in the 70's. On one occasion, saw one take-off, do some manoeuvres on after-burner, then a low-level run just...

    Spitfire flyover.

    I used to work on a military airfield and remember the last time a Lighting took-off from that runway. Pretty much everyone working the flight line that day were out watching as it roared down the concrete and then stood on its tail for a typically impressive vertical climb-out. I also...

    Thin end of the wedge

    I had/have an app on my old Samsung Galaxy S that displays a live speed value based on the phone's GPS, which if memory serves updates at 1Hz. Placed on top of the dash, it reflects as a HUD on the windscreen. Not used it in a while, but it stacked up with a race engineering GPS system I was...

    Thin end of the wedge

    Unlikely to be accurate. More likely to over-read by 5-10% depending on tyre wear. Check it with a GPS phone app.

    Flew over our house a few weeks ago... As mentioned already, glorious noise.
