Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

Not too surprised about F1 due to their presidential issues.

Far more surprised to see that Ricciardo will be moving to Renault next season!

I assume it will be a straight swap for Carlos Sainz, I’m sure it will all be seen soon enough!

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

I wouldn’t blame anyone not wanting to race with Williams at the moment.

I think it could end up being
LeClerc > Ferrari
Giovanazzi > Sauber
Alonso > Indy Car
Lando Norris > McLaren

But I would like to see Ricciardo move to McLaren and Sainz to join Verstappen again

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

With the rumours of Charles LeClerc moving to Ferrari next year, do any of you guys have a guess on who may move where at the end of the season?

Re: Your Favourite TV Shows

The Good Doctor I started watching this to fill a “House” sized hole in my viewing habits and it was INCREDIBLE! Every character feels genuine with honest relationships built around a difficult subject. Mental health/Learning difficulties can sometimes be a little on the nose in TV series but I thin...

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

I think McLaren we’re putting a lot of blame on the engine and really allowing their other design teams to go under the radar.

It’s a shame they were caught napping but hopefully this will give Red Bull a real title opportunity next season!

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

Well aside from the Hartley/Stroll incident that was quite a quiet race. A pair of slow races back to back never looks good for F1. It’s a shame that Bottas and Raikkonen don’t have the ability to challenge their teammates, but kudos to Bottas this weekend for putting together a solid race, in no wa...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I have never understood why they haven’t split the queue entirely to VR and non-VR with a station dedicated to each half. I know batching could be an issue but it’s likely that you could use 3 trains, 2 NVR and 1 VR.

Anecdote alert! I can't say this applies to the majority of the GP, however, I've always been struck how my non-enthusiast friends and family find Oblivion (front or back row!) so imposing and terrifying compared to the other rides at Towers. Oblivion's layout may be simple in comparison to newer d...

To be fair to Max he couldn’t anticipate Stroll brake testing him! But it was a decent race... not quite as exciting as the last two, bit I don’t think it could have been! On a side note I’m glad to see Hamilton back to winning ways as he definitely has the talent, despite his poor recent run of for...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Penguins would be AMAZING (charismatic megafauna ftw!) but would they have enough space for a decently sized enclosure for them or Otters? I'll be honest, I've not been in Sharkbait (it's usually too full of children for me) so don't know what it's like in there. They could easily have enough room ...

But equally Verstappen should have won at China but aggressive driving has cost him more points once again

Did anyone see the post race interview with Christian Horner... I think more than a few veins had burst in the debrief!

What a race! After Bahrain I thought this was going to be a little dull by comparison... boy was I wrong!

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

That is actually such a good idea guys, it would really fit into the story of the AT hotel but also in my opinion a lot of the marketing over the last 10 years (excluding new rides) have been quite steampunk-lite.  A whimsical steampunk land would actually be amazing. Thanks! Let’s just hope that A...
