    Labour peer slams ‘rigged’ Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

    https://www.planetf1.com/news/labour-peer-rigged-abu-dhabi-grand-prix/?fbclid=IwAR1odaSd9MFomlp_6dlfqgkrfsk0n9uVOu029bmhrnF-TGYYghwb1gR20Rs

    Bit late to stump up a comment.

    Lord Peter Hain, vice-chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Formula 1 in the UK, voiced his distaste about the way Max Verstappen was able to win his first World Championship

    A bit late to stump up? He actuality went public and voiced opinion the day after the Abu Dhabi GP and what he did say it more like watching WWE than a professional sport. He is really a true motorsport enthusiast. But there you go lets just shoot him down him flames for being a Labour Peer. Grow up Keith.

  2. Still having strong ties to Red Bull i did not expect for him to say anything different. What Ruud did miss out probably on purpose that Coulthard did say that Verstappen would would have not won the championship in a clean manner in the way the Lewis as won his previous 7 championship’s and he won in the manner that Senna and Schumacher won there titles and in a true enthusiast that involved a lot of cheating. Sadly for Lewis it was not only his main competitor that cheated the FIA got involved in the same tactics.

  3. Having been very critical of Harris thoughts of the brand over the last few years. For me its great that he is saying some positive things at last. Not long now before the journalist get there chance to tell the world how good Emira is, fingers crossed. His views on any car do matter especially when lotus are hoping to bring new customers from other brands. So who cares? Lotus definitely do.

  5. Wow for me I don’t believe we are having a debate about a little badge on the dashboard on such a historic car and probably the best car the company as built for some time now into the future, sure there are better things to talk about for potential customers when they do come for sale, lets face it its not going to be very often. They are definitely going a 6 figure number car again in not the to distant future.

  6. 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.

    The big loser today was F1

    I'm still fuming after hearing what Horner said to Masi.

    Jenson Button was absolutely right when he said that the teams should not be able to speak to the race director during a race. This has to change for next year!

    Not sure it will in the world of Netflix’s

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
