    I watched a race there back in the 80s. Was good fun watching a race, then turning round to watch the topless beauties on t’beach. :)

    Short term career and UK tax rates were 90 odd percent for high earners then.

    Won't a current F1 car do a lap of Zandvoort in about a minute? It feels more like a touring car or GT3 circuit than a modern F1 track.

    Slightly off-topic, but good to see Fernando emerge unscathed from a big shunt at Indy - there's no such thing as a small one at 230mph, although I suppose at least the first impact was a glancing blow. He called it a mistake, but from the video it looked as though the car in front lost him the downforce required to make the turn. Which doesn't bode well for the race.

    Isn’t that all a part of oval racing?

    Up to a point, but if they ever reach the sensitivity of current F1 cars it'll become the Indy 500 yds.

    Nothing to worry about really - the team will get back on track once Alonso leaves

    No mention of Niki Lauda here yet? He’ll be missed I’m sure by anyone who follows F1.

    It isn't a modern F1 track and will need substantial modification between now and 2020.

    I really do think Ferrari needs new management...

    No No No. It is all part of the plan. They are going to put LeClerc out on rock hard tyres so he can trundle around keeping everybody at bay so that Vettel can get his pitstop done with no threat from the Mercedes. Only problem seems to be that LeClerc wasn't read in on the plan.

    It sounds like Ferrari need someone like John Booth on the pit wall. Another amateurish mistake by the team.

    Ferrari have had expert strategists, in fact for a few years they had the best F1 strategist who sorted them out from being the team that had no idea about strategy to being pretty good at it. Then they persuaded him to leave and they have gradually got worse and worse since then.

    No no no.

    Ferrari need us lot. Bloody obvious, innit.

    As EddieJ has probably said already, for a multi-million dollar team to make such an elementary mistake is unforgiveable. Too many chiefs?

    Would that be the one snapped up by Mercedes?
