Rich energy tweeting about Nigel mansel and Williams. I think it may be Williams there sponsoring.

{Ed001's Note - I thought they had money pumped in by their new owner? That is a worry if they are in bed with RE.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Yaaaay Williams launch and no rich energy in sight! The livery looks nice.

I've seen people mention Ferrari but no chance.

{Ed001's Note - I can't see Ferrari dealing with them.}

For those fans waiting for news of our F1 return we can't wait to share details. Safe to say a few pundits will get a surprise! Premium British performance

A tweet from rich energy. I think he's talking poop.

Now Haas have certainly sprung a surprise with that one wow.

{Ed001's Note - I like the colour scheme, reminds me very much of the old JPS specials. Not so keen on the car, I prefer the Merc-style nose, not keen on those one with the odd sticky-out bit in the middle. It looks ugly.}

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Mar 2021 09:23:38
Can certainly tell daddy had an influence on Nikita's team.

{Ed001's Note - what worries me is Rich Energy's involvement again. Weren't they exposed as a sham?}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Mar 2021 12:17:11
Far too much to go into detail about rich but I genuinely think he's all talk with the F1 entry as the only cars left to launch if I'm right is Ferrari (definitely not) and Williams can't see them taking that Money.

{Ed001's Note - yeah sorry I thought I saw the logo on the front wings of the Haas, which is why I mentioned it. But I just had another look and it is not that logo thankfully!} Become a Patron!

Poor Haas only have three sponsors, that's not good.

{Ed001's Note - that is worrying. Can see them struggling. }

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Mar 2021 18:03:46
Suppose it all depends on how much the parents of Mick and Nikita plow into Haas, they've abandoned this season's car already focusing on 2022.

{Ed001's Note - no doubt they will dig deep into their pockets, just like Stroll has. It is turning into a 'my dad's bigger than yours' contest!}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Mar 2021 18:43:05
Yea by the looks of the grid only Hamilton, Russell and riciardio are the only ones without rich daddys.

{Ed001's Note - it always did favour money, but now it is becoming a bit of a joke.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Aston Martin looks Very nice indeed.

{Ed001's Note - the green colour is beautiful.} Become a Patron!

It's going to look so lovely going round somewhere like sakhir at night.

{Ed001's Note - it is very evocative of the old school Jags etc in their Racing Green. I am not normally a fan of green, but it does look damn good on cars.} Become a Patron!

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2021 18:31:37
God the jags had slipped my mind! It's honestly a lot more stunning than I thought it would be.

{Ed001's Note - I agree, it is the best looking so far.} Become a Patron!

Oh I like the W12!

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Mar 2021 08:41:35
It's race month!

{Ed001's Note - less than 2 weeks to the tests as well.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Mar 2021 09:55:34
Counting down the days ed. Plus we've got a busy week for car launches.

{Ed001's Note - true, just hope they are a bit more exciting than the RB one!} Become a Patron!

23 Feb 2021 11:29:32
Sadly no surprises from red bull.

{Ed001's Note - only to be expected I guess.}

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Feb 2021 11:54:13
In saying that they have removed Aston Martin on the wing and replaced it with honda for obvious reasons.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2021 15:33:09
New alpha looks nice!

{Ed001's Note - now I am confused! Alfa Romeo or Alpha Tauri?? I really wish they had a rule about making the names more distinctive. Actually I think they are both nice. Makes a change to have the cars look good again.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2021 17:23:33
😂 didn't even think to specify!
Yea amazing what a simple reverse of colours can make a massive difference.

{Ed001's Note - it is astonishing how much difference that makes you are right. Even something as small as the white wheels on the Tauri is pleasing to the eye. If the racing is as nice as the cars look, we are in for a good season.} Become a Patron!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2021 17:53:58
Don't think I've been this excited for a season in a while and nothing major is changed.

{Ed001's Note - yeah but last season was a very good one, so it is probably best nothing major changed. It should help compress the field, as there is only so much development in a car. It annoys me when they keep changing it, as the advantage is always massively in favour of the richest teams when they do so.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2021 18:18:59
As we said a few days ago the mid Field is where the action is and it's only getting closer.
Plus if more tracks do what Australia are doing and improving corners for overtaking it'll only get better.

{Ed001's Note - it was nice having a total mix up of tracks last season as well. I hope they do more of that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2021 19:24:09
Red bull launch tomorrow, will be no suprised livery there.

{Ed001's Note - could you imagine if they did surprise people? I have seen them use different liveries in things like the Aussie V8 Supercars. Be nice if they tried something new in F1 too.} Become a Patron!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2021 19:41:35
A white instead of the black? That'd be a nice touch.

{Ed001's Note - they did go quite white in the V8s.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2021 08:59:53
Well that was a stealth drop by alpha tauri!
I knew the launch was today but still.
The car looks nice!

{Ed001's Note - I have missed that, I will have to go look now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2021 11:14:34
I'm hoping the White wheels aren't just for show because wow.

{Ed001's Note - I think they are part of the colour scheme looking at it. It does look quite nice, but the launch video was silly.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2021 11:22:50
Seeings as they are a fashion brand aswell I guessed they d be tied in annoyingly so had mentally prepared myself.

{Ed001's Note - yeah but I just wanted to see the car and they barely showed it unfortunately.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2021 12:09:25
Seems as I grow older I get less excited for the football and more for the F1 season, never usually got sky but decided to just for the F1.

{Ed001's Note - football is not the same as it was right now, so it is difficult to get as excited about it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2021 13:36:05
Exactly and it's not even due to the C.V. it's slowly lost its glamour too much money going about, not enough entertainment.

{Ed001's Note - and VAR is not helping. But add that to no atmosphere and it is difficult to be bothered with it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2021 18:52:22
I love Franz tost when asked why he didn't name mazepin in his list of great young drivers he said
''I can be very rude and say that you are not going to make a tiger out of a cow, because it always depends on how smart someone is when they get in the car. However, in my career in Formula 1 I have seen that only drivers who are intelligent, know what they are doing and behave correctly will make it, ''

{Ed001's Note - interesting point of view.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2021 19:00:09
I'm unsure of mazepin he was a liability during the f2 season.

{Ed001's Note - do you think that video he had to apologise for had anything to do with it as well?}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2021 19:02:28
Oh of course he's got by with daddy's money ensuring he has a seat.

{Ed001's Note - to be fair you struggle to get anywhere without a rich dad in motor sports of any kind.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2021 11:09:01
Could we be seeing haas or Williams in pink next season? If rumours are true
I know I post a lot but no one I know loves f1.

{Ed001's Note - keep posting mate, I love F1 too, but no one I know other than me dad does. And he won't pay for Sky to watch it, so he hasn't seen it for a while. I have to be honest, I didn't like the pink livery but that might just be me as it seemed to be loved by the media.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2021 11:26:40
I didn't mind the livery but for some reason the overalls annoyed me, they looked cheap.
If Haas sign the deal the money from that, Mick and Nikita's dad's they could move up the grid in 2022 especially with the new Ferrari engineer onboard.

{Ed001's Note - they shouldn't have any trouble anyway with the money restrictions in place. All the top teams should be catchable now. Could make it a lot more interesting in the future.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2021 13:04:25
Now that's an exciting thought,
I'm not super fussy about Merc dominance, was the same with red bull and Ferrari.
The mid Field battle is where I usually find my joy and it's been Great recently and should be rather interesting this year, I see McLaren taking p3 again.

{Ed001's Note - I am the same, I don't know why people get so wound up about it. So long as there is some racing in there, it is good to watch. I just enjoy motor racing in general to be honest, F1 is the pinnacle, but there is a lot of good stuff out there to enjoy.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Feb 2021 14:50:41
Enjoyed the McLaren launch on Monday, and seeing the mcl35m around Silverstone, certainly got me excited for the approaching season, especially if Canada Italy and Sao Paulo get a sprint race.

{Ed001's Note - be nice to see how it gets on with the Merc engine.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2021 17:43:54
Engine freeze from 2022 so interesting to see what the teams do with the extra time to work on the engines.

{Ed001's Note - let's hope they all close up in power and make it a lot closer racing.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2021 17:46:22
And the possibility of a sprint race on a Saturday sounds interesting, better than the failed qualy change in 2014 I think it was.

{Ed001's Note - it has been something that has been discussed and rejected a number of times before, so I won't get my hopes up of it until it happens.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2021 17:50:25
According to sly sports preliminary meeting had good traction, their F1 reports are the only ones that seem to be somewhat accurate compared to their other coverage.

{Ed001's Note - that's because they have the broadcast rights, so they get direct access to the F1 hierarchy usually. The teams usually are the ones that reject it, not sure why.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Dec 2020 17:18:00
Perez got his move! I can’t wait to see how he does in the red bull and max has an experienced driver to keep him on his toes!

Feel bad for Albion but it’s a no brainer when a driver like Perez is available.

What do you make of the move ed001?

{Ed001's Note - had to be done, he was the best available option and I think he will give Verstappen a fright.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Sep 2020 17:28:14
ed001, what do you make of Vettles move to Aston/ racing point?

He is obviously a bigger name then perez, but the way he has been treated, being axed by text is a bit sour for me. Perez has done well in the merc of last year and deserved better imo. Obviously Stroll is safe as houses with his dad as the owner and if he wasn't that lucky he would be the one to go.

Plus vettle looks to have lost his mojo so I think I would of stuck with perez personally.

{Ed001's Note - it does look like a huge mistake. Though he might well rediscover his fire with the way he is being treated by Ferrari. That is their only hope really, is that he is driven by bitterness. Other than that, it looks a crazy decision. For both parties to be honest. Why would you want to join a team owned by the father of your teammate? He is clearly going to be favoured with better equipment and get the pick of the strategies etc.

It must be pointed out, Perez was only there initially because of the sponsorship he brings with him, which gave them money to go racing. So he was always likely to be pushed out of the door once they no longer needed that money.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Sep 2020 18:06:36
Didn’t know that about Perez, but it’s a shame he's leaving he’s doing wonders for my fantasy f1 team so hope it doesn’t effect him.

I think vettle has been broken by merc and Hamilton. I feel that Aston want him for the name and he’s gone as it’s the best offer he was going to get. I do think it’s destined for tears. And I can’t see them competing much higher up the grid then their current efforts.

As for Perez wonder where he will end up, potentially Indy which seems to be where a host of past f1 drivers end up.

{Ed001's Note - someone will take Perez as he brings good sponsorship. Good driver too, so he is not just a pay driver unlike some.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Sep 2020 20:11:15
I don't know where is available though ed001, I think it was only Haas and alfa that have space and he is better then that. Itll be a shape if he has to take a drop down the grid at the expense of vettle.

Hopefully vettle proves me wrong and he is a success. Personally I think he will be battling with Mclaren for the best of the rest behind red bull next season.

{Ed001's Note - both Ferrari-engined teams, which is a bit of a problem as that is the worst engine now they have blocked off the avenue for them to cheat. However with him being backed by Carlos Slim's billions, he could turn them into a competitive team.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2020 20:06:28
First time poster on here well the F1 anyway just fought Monza this weekend was a cracking race and with Ferrari struggling this season just to see McLaren racing point romeo Renault getting in top six most weeks an not to forget max verstappen challenging hamilton think it's better My that's my opinion what's others thoughs.

{Ed001's Note - it was a brilliant race, if a little harsh on Hamilton and Giovanazzi to get a 10 second stop and go.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2020 19:53:22
Hey Ed do you still do your after race talking points? Haven't seen them this season.

{Ed001's Note - I haven't been doing them, to be honest I forgot all about them! I will start again for the next race. Though you have to bear in mind I might miss a fair bit as the coverage I get is Arabic language. Makes it difficult sometimes to follow what is going on.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2020 15:00:36
Cool, thanks Ed! I enjoyed them 😊 look forward to hearing your take on the comedy gold that is ferrari! 😂.

{Ed001's Note - they really are full on slapstick right now!}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2020 13:36:14
Hey Ed,

I'm sure you've read Vettel and Ferrari calling it quits at the end of the season. What do you think went wrong? Was it purely the fact that Ferrari didn't see him as the No.1 driver, even though they might have publicly said it?

Where do you think he's most likely to go now and who do you think is best placed to replace him? You think Ricciardo has a chance or driving for the Scuderia?

Many thanks!

{Ed001's Note - I think he just lost his passion for the sport. At one point he was driven by a desire to set records but now he has seen Hamilton overtake him and he just wasn't able to lift himself. When he tried to push harder, he kept making mistakes and the criticism took away his enjoyment of racing. He just doesn't want to face the abuse and criticism for something he really doesn't enjoy doing any more and has too much pride to settle for being second best.

Sainz has already been chosen to replace him next season.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2020 13:31:37
What do you think of Vettel leaving Ferrari and being replaced by Sainz? Bit gutted for McLaren, they had a good competitively pairing in Carlos Sainz and Chuck Calrissian.
