  1. RIP: Fifth Gear TV Show

    I've liked it so far, not much to dislike and not of the rubbish that has started to grate on some of the other shows.

    Good who doesn't like a good car program.
  3. There is a view that sometimes teams focused too much on him and his opinion against other wisdom. He has certainly cost McLaren dear in his requests for what but there issues run far deeper. I guess I feel the same about Schumacher, never warmed to him at all but respected him as a racer. Didn't like his tactics and arguable he stole some wins through what some might say is cheating and you can't say that for Hamilton. Prost again was excellent but cold for me and too clinical and didn't have the passion. Senna, Hamilton, Schumacher, Alonso, Prost for me in that order all during my time in relation to F1, although I'd say there are some that inspired in other series or bikes but thats for another debate all together.
  4. He is a great driver just took too many bad turns along the way. One of the best no he has been beaten by team mates at times in the same car so not a Schumacher, Hamilton, Senna for me.

    Great it was a good addition in the past will see if I can find it.
  6. Daniel Ricciardo to leave Red Bull

    Going to be very interesting to see how this pans our. Renault have got some very good technical guys that haven't joined recently so it will be interesting to see how this goes. I think he wanted the move to get out under the shadow of Max which they have obviously got as No. 1 drive and I suspect he will get a chunk extra cash. One article seems to think he will be getting £20m which will be way more than Redbull were offering.
  7. RS3 - Saloon!

    BMW never took all the buttons away, even on my 330i years ago it still had many of the normal buttons and buttons that you can set to do what you want as a quick shortcut. As for the 8, yeah its moved even more upmarket from the 6 of before and more premium options to boot and its an entirely new car.
  8. RS3 - Saloon!

    Yeah I can see that I was going to say I will be interested to see what they look like when I see one in the flesh. Certainly think they are quite colour sensitive but overall a really good looking car to me. See what the 4 door looks like.
  9. RS3 - Saloon!

    I still think the new one looks stunning and as for the comment on buttons BMW have had good use of buttons and Drive for a long time its a great balance.
  10. RS3 - Saloon!

    I'd see what happens with the GC version there will be tweaks certainly. I quite like it but not in white needs another colour.
  11. Guy Martin & Coulthard F1 Special

    A GP is only over three days.. unlikely.

    Yeah they couldn't stop him talking bless him.
  13. Yikes - those street circuits always seem to cause crashes like that once in a while.
  14. RS3 - Saloon!

    GC Confirmed for 2019 release there are patent images of the car out there now but in a basic spec. Add the M-Sport and it will look fantastic.
  15. Red Bull decides on Honda F1 engine switch

    The Honda engine has proven to be better this year and the most recent update seems to have given a good step. Honda aren't as bad as Mclaren have made them to look in reality so its going to be interesting to see how things are played out. Did anyone also read that there seems to be a mini mutiny at McLaren trying to push out good old Eric B it seems. I'd personally say they have forgotten to integrate as a race team should do and they aren't focused on the racing and being too robotic and finger pointing.
