Not sure, I've only sat in the stands... honestly, I would suggest seriously considering sacrificing some luxuries and saving a couple of hundred extra and sitting there at Eau Rouge - Gold 4 (or 3, I always mix the two up) is quite a bit cheaper than Gold 3 (or 4, see above) because it's not under cover, because it's such an iconic corner - though I have heard really good things about sitting on the grass along Kemmel Straight.

I've never been to Spa, but when I look at the seating, Gold 4 (or 3 idk) looks the best place to park yourself.

You've got a good view of the cars down the hill and through Eau Rouge. If you bring binoculars, surely you could see the back of the pits.

And of course there's a TV screen at the bottom of Eau Rouge, so you don't have just guess what's going on for the rest of the time.

Spa itself is a GOAT circuit

pat symonds says they have fixed the hub issue with the pit stops. he was adament about it on the motor sport magazine podcast. he also said the car is different from the past two years, but not a revolution. he also wants the proposed 2017 regs pushed back to 2018. williams will be fine senpai.

I don't see reason for all the hate tbqh. Watching the rabbitstream, the races weren't too boring, there was decent strategy, and overtaking and defensive driving actually meant something.

Better than DRS and Pirleli at least
>>
>>64982806
Refuelling would actually go very well with the new tyre choice regulations.
Back in the tyre war days the strategy was fuel-dominated, because tyres were made from diamonds, basically.
For the last two years it would have been roughly the same, since there was very little variety to tyre strategy.
But with a possibility to potentially go more aggressive on the tyres, pitting for fresh rubber may as well balance out staying out longer on light fuel load (like it might have done with the 2012-13 high-deg compounds). Would be interesting to see teams trying to counter both leapfrogging and undercuts - and actually standing a chance against pit strategy manoeuvers.

Is it too bold to speculate that Alonso will win a race in 2016? At the very least a podium.

If Honda continues to be absolute shit for 2016 I honestly don't know how the team will be able to handle it. If all those promises of a better 2016 turn out to be false, the team will actually not survive.
>>
>>64987964
>If Honda continues to be absolute shit for 2016 I honestly don't know how the team will be able to handle it.

They will lose their sponsorships, Alonso will leave them, Button might just retire, and they will probably have to get a new engine, probably from Mercedes again I'm guessing

Switching to Honda for 2015 is the most hilarious cock-up in the history of sport, when they actually had the most competitive power unit in their car in 2014. What a fucking joke.

Is Magnussen potentially replacing Maldonado a good thing? People seem to be of the opinion that Magnussen undoubtedly deserves another drive. Yes, he was fucked hard by McLaren but his debut season was not particularly amazing. It was slightly elevated in terms of results by having a decent car, but had he driven at the same level in e.g. a Force India or Sauber he would have gone completely unnoticed, somewhat similar to say, Nasr in 2015.

I would honestly just replace Palmer with Magnussen instead. Unless he magically got a lot better during a year when he only drove in a few FP1's, I really don't think he has any legitimate edge to gloriously succeed in F1. Someone less lazy than me could dig up Palmer's FP1 fastest times, find out how much slower/faster he was compared to Maldonado on average, then compare this to Grosjean's FP1 times against Maldonado.

Maldonado isn't a shit driver. On a good day he is very good. What he should have done is improve as a driver, which he hasn't. He still drives the same as he always has, with maybe a tiny bit more restraint. I don't mind the aggressiveness but what he should have improved is the consistency of scoring points, and eliminating the DNF's, like say Grosjean ex-crash-lad seemingly has.

Plus if Maldonado is gone = who will be the designated MEME driver?

WHO WILL BECOME THE NEW MALDONADO CRASH LAD WHEN MALDONADO IS GONE????
>>
>>64988146

(that livery looks like shit)

F1 really doesn't need any more BLACKED cars on the grid.

>PROTIP: For the sake of brand consistency, Renault will adopt their already established Formula E color scheme, pic related.

Will based Alain "the villain Senna hater" Prost be appointed the new team principal of Renault F1? He is already doing Formula E but Formula E is shit as fuck and he must know it. The only thing better than Prost as team leader would be bringing back the eternal GOAT Flavio

>>64988393
chandhok. crashed the lotus on his first lap at melbourne. plus he was slow as shit when he replaced trulli. karthikeyan was slow, but faster than chandhok. plus him racing vettel for ninth place was top kek. chandhok has no such moments to his name.

>>64988445
gonna be slow as fuck, as usual. plus the year out not driving anything will have done him no favours.
>>
>>64988393
>>64988388

Karthikeyan was better, but older by the time he got to F1.

He was undoubtedly more meme, as seen by the cucumber incident.
>>
>>64988445

The fact that he shat himself for 2 years at Sauber against Hulkenshit who is now getting BTFO by PEREZ, took a year off, and is still able to get a drive is pretty amazing.

I really have no expectations of his performance and I will be thoroughly impressed if he manages to even match Grosjean. Really dont know why Gutierrez is even in F1. The Mexicans already have one paydriver Mexican in the sport and he is miles better than Gutierrez. He literally serves no unique purpose and has by no means demonstrated himself to be a driver worthy of being in F1 on merit/skill alone.

renault's original f1 team 1977-85 i think) was based in france.

when alain prost criticised and left renault in the 80s, french people went to his house and burned his road car. which led him to leave for switzerland. i read it in a book by nigel roebuck. inside formula 1 i think it is called.

renault entered f1 as a constructor in 2002, taking over benetton's entry and factory in england.

which is the same this year. but they may do some pu stuff in france,not sure.
>>
>>64995764

I mean wasn't the PU developed in France already?

At least I would assume that the Renault that supplied e.g. Red Bull through the championships and the one manufacturing the current Renault-branded PU, is the Renault based in France, as in the actual real Renault.

Has there been any further discussion about Red Bull's PU situation btw?

>Not Merc
>Not Ferrari
>Almost certainly not Honda
>Most likely not a Renault branded "Renault"
>"Ron Dennis won't be very happy with it" -Horner

Some have speculated that it's going to be a Renault PU branded as Nissan, with Red Bull engineers having greater control over the development. I can't think of anything more plausible at this moment, taking into consideration Horner's comments about Ron Dennis.
