    Interesting that since Adrian Newey announced his departure from Red Bull, followed by an assertion by Horner that Adrian had nothing to do with the current car, they have not sailed serenely into the distance in every session. Coincidence or not?

    RIP Donald Sutherland

    His role as Oddball in Kelly’s Heroes nearly stole the movie. Sad that he was never in his career nominated for an Oscar. Fine actor. RIP

    Thanks for the heads-up. I doubt we'll be going as trips to London from the North-West can be a pain in the rear end. Looks like it will be an interesting event to go to though, so thanks again.

    Lewis said that for some reason, he was unable to switch the tyres on (get them into the right operating temperature window) for the last session. Happens sometimes, might be driver error, might track conditions. Did George set his quickest time in the final run? Both were quicker in Q2...

    Scraping noose driving at low speed

    Quoted from @akiiraja96 ”I’ve had the pads and discs replaced all around about 5k miles ago” Ok. Well the noise is still wheel assembly/brake related IMHO. Perhaps a stone as suggested by @ALFAitalia or one of the discs rubbing against the backplate.

    Scraping noose driving at low speed

    Maybe, but less likely in my view to be a stone than worn brake parts. FWIW, I have heard badly worn brake pads/discs make this sound before, yes when just driving along. Whatever. It is definitely brake/wheel assembly related and needs sorting now. IMHO it is very likely to be a significant...

    Scraping noose driving at low speed

    Sounds to me like the brake pads need replacing, like now.

    It's definitely a bucket list job for any fan of motorsport. We took our SLK200 Kompressor down there in 2009 and 2010. Got our camping gear, boots, camera gear, clothing for four or five days etc in the boot and could still fold the roof down. Cracking little car, it lapped up the journey...

    Just watching qualifying on Eurosport. We last went in 2010. Enjoyed it but don’t fancy going there under canvas again, so would have to do a more luxurious option next time.

    Michael Mosley .

    Yes, very sad. Unfortunately going rambling about on your own in 40 degC heat (or indeed -40 degC) is not a great idea.

    Mercedes have been slow to sort out their correlation issues, but were always likely to sooner or later. Maybe they've now got it, maybe not. Canada was encouraging, but the surface was brand new and the conditions were too variable to sure. Again time will tell. What was the mistake that...

    Yes I did look at the link. I'm not a fashion critic. I don't care what he looks like, what clothes he wears, who he dates or what sexual orientation he is, etc. I'm more of an F1 fan from a technological viewpoint and continually blown away by just how much these cars (and drivers) push the...

    Not sure I get where you're coming from on this one? Having originally expected to stay on at Mercedes, Lewis has decided to join Ferrari instead. Not seeing a problem with that and neither is Toto.

    F1 2024

    I'm assuming you are referring to Lewis' move to Ferrari being a shock? Was a bit of a shock, but Mercedes have struggled under the current regulations to build a really competitive car. So it's not really surprising that Lewis joined up with his old buddy Fred at Ferrari. Probably better to do...
