    What an appalling question.

    What on earth does he mean by that?

    I guess we should expect nothing more from that rag.

    If he had any knowledege on the subject maybe he'd be discussing whether, if there are any lower levels of popularity among drivers, it it's potentially being linked to a drop in popularity of F1, or its switch to pay per view.

    I thought Lewis Hamilton handled it, and answered it, far more respectfully than I would have.

    We need a good race, Ferrari win and tightly bunched midfield battles is what I'm hoping for.

    Poor, George Russel coming into F1, he must be dredding how many times he expects to get lapped at his home GP

    Will the #1 in FP1 boost Pierre further during this weekend?
    I think he tested some extra 'partymode' features and stressed the Honda engine a bit more. Max (and his team) asked the team to take more risk so he can keep up the quali and race pace with Ferrari and Mercedes. Was FP1 a good live trial?

    Anyway: enjoy the British (wet?) Formule 1 weekend

    Coulthard crashed going into the pitlane at the start of his career, but in the end he did make something of it.

    David Coulthard Crashed in the Magny-Cours pit lane he was only going 10-20 mph and went straight into the chicane. Slowest crash i have ever seen.

    I am glad this is the last of Silverstone. I liked the configurations of 1980-1990. Real racers track. Now its a piece of crap that looks pretty on TV. You have to camp out to go there and it will probably rain a lot. That said in the near future we will have a street race in London. Knowing street racing it will have a lot of pile ups and pace car and we will miss the 80's Silverstone and Brands hatch. Street racing is good for one thing and one thing only, racing Taxi Cabs.

    I think the slowest Crash happend a week a go in Goodwood of course not in F1....but I totally forget which car and driver. I only mean that Romain is since last year the new Maldonado for me. I never will forget how he crashd into a few cars in the first corner last year while he totally killed the other cars with a burnout. This was really funny:)

    Big thump for the one who voted Valtteri to win. That would be best thing for championship battle, to beat Lewis on his home track.

    No, as always he is doing the setup for RB.
    Then max will come doing the best lap while the team will forget to put wheels to pierre's car.

    In all fairness he's probably a good guy, but I think it is indeed time to understand that pursuing F1 probably isn't the best idea for him.

    Do love her dress though.

    I voted HAM because Mercedes will likely smoke the field. We might see Red Bull up there if they can nail the twisty bits. I don't think the team will allow Bottas to win in GB unless he is up by 20-30 seconds at the midpoint.

    The rumour says he is a competent cook - probably better than as a driver.

    It was really interesting what EJ quoted.."that Vettel to Mercedes & Hamilton to Ferrari"..not convinced by that, I think there's more chance that Vettel will retire..
    As for Silverstone great it's staying, but still miss the old layout..
