  4. 'Inside Team McLaren' on Amazon Video

    McLaren has announced American-based multinational computer company Dell Technologies as a new sponsor for the 2018 Formula 1 season. The deal, which was confirmed on Thursday, will see the manufacturer of PCs, computer servers and TVs supply both hardware and software to the F1 team and its Applied Technologies division. "McLaren is delighted to announce a multi-faceted, long-term partnership with Dell Technologies, the world’s largest privately-controlled technology company," the team's statement read. "Dell Technologies, which consists of seven global brands – Dell, Dell EMC, Pivotal, RSA, Secureworks, Virtustream and VMware – will bring its deep technology expertise to all McLaren Technology Group companies, including McLaren Racing and McLaren Applied Technologies, as well as benefitting McLaren’s esports programme, World’s Fastest Gamer.

  6. iMac Pro Performance

    RAM and SSD prices have increased recently but they still won’t break the bank. Something like 45 quid for a 4GB module and 80 for an extra 8GB module. An easy 5min upgrade I’d see how the machine runs before upgrading, I find a fast win 10 machine doesn’t need as much ram as past operating systems Long term driver support would be one of my main concerns on an unbranded machine.
  7. iMac Pro Performance

    If you want a lightweight, energy efficient laptop then I'd say those specs are ok. But for light gaming / video editing / accounts, it will struggle. I'd rather (for around the same budget) be looking at something like this: it's got a significantly faster 7th Gen i5 processor, 15.6" HD display and a DVDRW drive should you want to pump out some home movies - is that still a thing? On the downside, it only has 4GB RAM (one spare slot for an upgrade) & has the same 128GB M.2 HDD but USB3 memory sticks are cheap enough. If you want a 1080p 13.3" display then this could be the closest match (with a much better CPU): You can save about £50 on those prices by specing a 1TB HDD/6th Gen i3 instead of the 128GB M.2 SSD.
  8. Arch has the 4th Gen R, the newer 5th Gen is even more angular and pointy.

  10. F1 Grid Kids

    Hey son, these cars are really dangerous. A few people have been killed or seriously injured in them. But that's OK, you just stand there and look glamorous like the girls who used to do it. See if you can attract the eye of some Paedo. Oh and hold this bottle of bubbly whilst E-bmw hangs up his mac. I wonder will they (for health & safety reasons) be accompanied by their (scantily clad) grid mums (Grid MiLFs)?

    Stupid idea How the hell are they going to get kids to stand still for 2 hours on the grid in scorching temperatures? at Spa or Silverstone when it's pissing down? They are killing the F1 traditions.
  12. 2018 UK F1 TV schedule

    Formula 1 chiefs have confirmed that there will be a shake-up of the weekend schedule this year, with many European races now starting at 3.10pm. As Liberty sets about its overhaul of grand prix racing, it has announced the biggest shake-up in the F1 schedule for years. The entire weekend's timetable for European races is being shifted back in a bid to help attract a larger television audience. Furthermore, the races will now start 10 minutes past the hour to allow broadcasters to better incorporate the pre-race build-up if their programming starts on the hour.
  13. 2018 UK F1 TV schedule

    Sort of related to F1 TV Coverage as it's the closest you lot will get to seeing grid girls. Formula One organisers have announced walk-on grid girls will no longer be used before races. F1 commercial chief Sean Bratches said that it was felt using grid girls no longer fitted in with the new brand image that Liberty wants for grand prix racing. In a statement issued on Wednesday, he said: "Over the last year we have looked at a number of areas which we felt needed updating so as to be more in tune with our vision for this great sport. "While the practice of employing grid girls has been a staple of Formula 1 Grand Prix for decades, we feel this custom does not resonate with our brand values and clearly is at odds with modern-day societal norms. The move, which will be both for motor racing's top category as well as all support events at each grand prix - including Formula 2 and GP3 - comes as part of Liberty Media's revamp.
  14. Fernando Alonso will race at Le Mans and other selected WEC rounds this year, his McLaren team confirmed on Tuesday. The two-time world champion had been considering taking part in the endurance classic for several months, as he chases his dream of winning motor racing’s ‘Triple Crown’. And following his debut sportscar appearance at Daytona last week, a deal has now been reached for Alonso to race for Toyota in as many WEC rounds as possible. However, McLaren and Alonso have agreed that his priority remains Formula 1 – so he will miss the Japanese event at Fuji on October 21 because it clashes with the United States Grand Prix. Alonso said he was delighted at the opportunity to take part in sportscar racing alongside his F1 ambitions.
