  1. Stunning Jon, can not wait to see some content on One Eleven Cars YouTube channel and hopefully have a run out with you in the Peak District in the new year.
  2. Happy birthday pal 👍
  3. Totally agree Russell is and will be a fantastic driver and will probably Challenge Verstappen in the future for world championships as will Norris, Sainz, Leclerc given equal equipment. What frustrates me Lewis as shown his world championship potential from day one in his first year he embarrassed the all mighty Fernando Alonso and the idiot as never got over that till this day and the pundits still go to great lengths how good he his well he got beat by a rookie in 2007 and people still question Lewis’s ability what a joke. For me Russell will be a great asset to Mercedes next season he is for sure a better driver the Bottas and will only benefit the team to win the world championship for driver and manufacturer, will he challenge Lewis? yes for sure on occasions but over a season you have to say no. Lets just embrace what what we have seen in the last 15years for me the best Racing Driver off all time full stop. Lewis as definitely had more support for being a good loser than being a lucky winner in the last week.Lets hope he gets his 8th championship next year and then call’s it day, what more does he have to prove?.
  4. Totally agree the Five Stratton cars are probably closer to the original concept than the 20 the factory produced cars and yes a bargain compared to the silly prices some dealers are asking for SRs at the moment.
  5. The winner today is obviously Verstappen? yes but for me the biggest winner is Liberty Media and there partnership with Netflix and sadly for me it felt more contrived than a episode of Coronation Street.
  6. Not sure it will in the world of Netflix’s
  7. I would not put it past Red Bull to do a Renault 2008 Singapore and deliberately crash one of there other three cars to bring the safety car out so Verstappen gets a free pit stop to get him of the red softer tyres. Red Bull will do anything inside and outside the rules to win this Championship.
  8. Great run out today on a nice winter day. A very good reason not to sorn in the winter months. The exhaust note seemed to be on a different level not sure way, thinner air on a cold December day?
  9. Tiff Needells thoughts on Verstappens driving.
  10. LV is my insurer and have been for a good few years. Yes i am happy with the annual premium that i have to pay and the service they provide, thankfully i have not have to make a claim thats where things could change?. There are so many variables that come into play with car insurance providers and being in my 60s and what i think is ok postcode has its benefits especially when it comes to renewal. I am not going to put the figure on the amount that i pay as i do think at times it can be misleading, yes it is cheap for the reason mentioned above. The only advice i can give is shop around, use the comparison site’s most good insurance company’s are there and yes for obviously reason they are not always the cheapest but there are some competitive rates to be had.
  11. Great informative video, watching the Emira on Hethel’s test track with the touring settings for me it looks like it as a fair bit of body roll and as been said many times similar to the S1 Evora. Having owned both a S1 Evora and the latest GT410sport, for me i would be going for the sport settings, on fast B road driving it gives you so much more feedback and confidence even at the lower limits of ability’s of the car and it as to be said the harder ride of the sports suspension is still fantastic for even the most poorly maintained roads that we have been accustomed in this day and age.
  12. Same can be said without Lewis it would be one of the most boring seasons ever and regarding dirty driving Verstappen was obviously looking for contact at Brazil just like he was at Monza, its something he seems to strife on the thought of being invisible so yes it’s obvious given the slightest opportunity he would take Lewis out and thats the difference from a multiple championship winning driver and one that’s never won a championship in his entire career. The most successful driver in F1 history as the ability to read the moment and jump out the way of a manoeuvre that was reckless attempt to take him out the race. Sorry haven’t got a clue what you are talking about dirtiest most dangerous piece of driving all year, Max needs to take a lesson from a multiple world champion then one day he might win something.
  13. Please share your most iconic Exige V6 video and what it will be remembered for. This is my contribution.
  14. Totally agree with the struggle you see about where the hype comes from about Max, he as never won a championship even in the lower category’s. Lewis came into f1 with championships under his belt and with probably the best driver in F1 at the time Alonso as a teammate, beat him in is rookie year something Alonso as never got over and what he did in qualifying in Hungary 2007 his something that is cut from the same cloth of dirty tactics that you get from Verstappen. Will Max ever change? Well he will probably win his first championship in his long motoring racing career this year will it change as a driver and a person probably not he will will always leave that nasty taste in your mouth for true f1 enthusiast. The sport as become even more toxic than even football, thanks one team and its senior management and its No1 driver who strangely in some peoples eyes is the best F1 driver ever. Thanks Christian, Helmut and Max, lets hope the junior categorys are seeing through what you stand for. Flavio Briatore was a nasty piece of work in his time in F1 but those mentioned above make him look like angel.
  15. Yes 25 places made up over the weekend, love him or hate him there can be argument it was a drive of a champion and yes probably it cements he is the best ever 🤷the the history of F1
  16. What a fantastic weekend we have just witnessed for F1 and in for particular for Lewis Hamilton, yes he his not everyone’s favourite for what ever reason usually the wrong one. What he achieved this weekend was a true masterclass in driving ability. One of the most epic comebacks you will ever witness.
  17. If thats all people have complain about for me it looks like Lotus have done a tremendous job on the Emira’s interior. Perhaps the diehards would say what’s wrong with a key or even one of these 😂
  18. Well that’s disappointing not sure i would pay big numbers for what looks like a bit of a bling Elise interior upgrade.
  19. I use my Cup2s in the snow 😀
  20. Not sure i like the number plate DNF 😂
  21. Some one mention a 410 on lower revs. No fake sounds there. not sure you are going to get that with a 4pot?
  22. Not sure why the Gurney flap is fitted, could be some aero problems at high speed? A Emira mule at the same location.
