Re: 2021 Discussion Thread

What about if they followed the procedure in lower formulae that when the safety car comes out, the laps are neutralized-that way if there were 5 laps to go when it came out, then there would still be 5 laps left and we wouldn't have arguments about whether to finish under a safety car or go for a o...

Re: Reject of the Race - Belgium 2021

Here's a suggestion- there is a TBC in the calendar slot kicking around in November sometime.
Why not
a) Eliminate this weekend completely and reallocate Spa that TBC spot
b) Tickets from this weekend automatically gain admission to that new weekend?

Re: Ponderbox

With the current trend of having two races back to back at a single circuit, would the logistics work so that one of the races could be run anti-clockwise?

Re: Ponderbox

Well Phoenix moved from June to March and the audience still didn't come in. Austin has been bringing in the crowds so there's obviously Formula 1 interest in that area-or perhaps it's only grown over the last 25-30 years so was it purely the heat that killed off Dallas?
