    I really can't understand Gladys giving everyone 48 hours to get across the border before they close it. They need to set up random testing sites along the highways just north of the border to test everyone heading up.
  6. No, I was on the open page, not the invite-only one.

    Formula One 2020

    Yes the car makes a big difference. But feedback from the driver is a significant factor in the development of the car (even moreso with motorbikes). Schumacher and Alonso both made Renault a championship winning car. Kubica was doing all right in the Renault before his accident, but otherwise I cannot remember anyone else doing anything significant in a Renault. And Alain Prost has always been my favourite driver.

    Look, it really does sound like it's the perfect time for McGowan to stop his popularity seeking and throw open the border.

    191. Haven't heard the spin yet, but ****!
  11. Yep. And objective #1 is to beat your teammate Which is why Alain Prost deserves more recognition than he does - people forget that he was the only teammate to ever beat Ayrton Senna
  12. One only has to look as the performances between team mates to see that the drivers count. This is especially so, when one looks at the performances of some pay drivers over the years when compared to genuinely talented professional drivers on the same team. Lewis Hamilton has been in some of the best cars for his whole career, but he has seen off world champion drivers of the calibre of Alonso, Button and Rosberg as team mates. In 15 seasons he’s only been beaten by a team mate twice - Button in 2011 and Rosberg in 2016 (when mechanical failures were the difference). Bottas is a very very good driver in his own right and deserving of being a No.1 driver in any team that doesn’t also have Hamilton on its roster. He’s often quicker than Hamilton, but Hamilton finds a way to win across the season and hence Hamilton has been WC in all three years that they have been team mates. On the other hand, Vettel - a 2 time WC has been shown up comprehensively by new drivers on his team twice - Ricciardo in 2014 at Red Bull and last year by LeClerc at Ferrari. In both those years Seb would have started as a clear No.1 driver with the total support of the team behind him, and yet the skill and enthusiasm of ‘the rookies’ totally outclassed him. Not saying that he’s not a great driver, but his style and temperament is clearly more suited to the old school days of V8s - V10s producing 1000hp in cars weighing 500kg than the hybrid era of cars weighing 750kg and producing around 800-900hp, where power unit management and aerodynamic gizmos are as important as raw speed. So, good cars and team support is essential, but being a champion driver is what separates the likes of Prost, Senna, Schumacher and Hamilton from the rest.

    Yeah saw that. I guess for Cairns and Sunny Coast it depends on how many locals will make up the race numbers, because if borders open up it will be only a few weeks before these races, so if the race organisers are relying on interstate competitors I reckon they might have a problem. I'm guessing TWA are planning on having a much smaller race in October with the majority of competitors coming from WA. The race in December might be a different story though.
  15. Yay for another day of school holidays!
  16. I do not 🙄😛 Are you on the right Strava page? It looks like this...

    Not really. Spent a winter there 25 years ago and promised myself I'd never go back in winter. Never been so cold for so long in my life. We tried to book some sites for August back in February and were told that those sites and all around them have been booked out by a group of about 10-15 vans from Victoria who book it every year for 3 months. Saw the same thing last year on the Gold coast. Lots of Victorians and no locals. Guessing it didn't happen this year.
  21. Today
  22. Nealos YouTube channel. Me just sharing here. He did all the work
  23. If Busso is commercially viable with a domestic field, why wouldn't it go ahead? They could even cut costs by not having a witches hat or a marshal at the run turnaround. Not like any of the local athletes would venture that far.

    Rumours are the Vic media update is delayed while they try to work out how they can say 190+ and not make it look too bad.
