    It's a shame that our homemade tracks with the Track Path Editor are now all gone, with the shut-down. Not that I was really using them, but it's nice to be able to go back.

    I haven't driven enough of the others to really comment, but the FD certainly feels every inch the sports car to me. In some ways it's like a "Miata plus", almost as small inside but with a bit of a...

    RIP, an amazing career. I love the diversity of winning races in so many categories, pioneering aerodynamics, and running a top team.

    Indeed. Having let Massa go, they're now left with a choice of drivers, all of whom appear to be slower than Felipe. Oops.

    What makes it so tricky is that they're saddled with pay-driver Stroll...

    Yeah, I think last race he was pointing out that their engines typically last 2 races. That sounds ok, but in reality it means a repeating pattern of a race where the engine blows up, followed by a...

    A couple of weeks ago this was being discussed in the office, and I asked which was going to use more battery power, the car's drive motor or the computers. Answer, the latter (!) Albeit this is on...

    ^ sounds good.

    Palmer is a bit embarassing, time to give someone else a go.

    McLaren Honda is a lot embarassing, the TR swap makes sense for all concerned.

    I know - I have no idea why they aren't using that, whether Ford can't or won't supply it, or it'd be too expensive, or they want something different. It would seem the obvious way to go. Still,...

    Is this the right room for an argument ?

    For me, what I care about is that the ratio between engine speed and wheel speed is under the explicit control of the driver.
    So a manual counts, because...

    I saw this, sounds pretty cool to get such a big improvement in efficiency out of the good-old ICE. Apparently they even think it would be good on NOx.

    If it was the tenth-best selling car in both the US and the EU, that would equate to a bit over 250K sales each side of the Pond. So that's the sort of sales position it would imply.

    Tesla Model 3 looks good, seems inexpensive. A 220-mile or 310-mile Tesla makes the 110-mile Nissan Leaf look a bit lame.
