  1. So the facts are gathered and recorded. Sloppy journalists will mis-report the facts or partially report the facts to suit their story. The readers of the news reports will only believe what suits their mind set. I am, of course, stereotyping. Everyone is different.
  2. Chasing the sonic rings on mud and snow Priced to sell
  3. Happy to keep all the traffic in the south east. You like France but you don't want to go there or spend money there. You like French people but you want to hurt them economically. You don't want to go to France but you don't want to use other routes. Make your minds up.
  4. Happy for you to keep all the traffic in the south east but if you are really desperate to avoid France (I like France) then as @C8RKH says Hull is available to Rotterdam and Zeebrugge Ferry to Holland | Hull to Rotterdam | P&O Ferries and Grimsby is geared up for goods traffic. Want to go to Spain / Portugal then you have got Portsmouth and Plymouth. To be honest, you sound like a bunch of schoolboys or even more juvenile, throwing your dummy out the pram.
  5. Pardons - Virtually an admission there was collaboration with the Russians?
  6. Sorry I thought this was the Euro topic, turns out it the coronavirus topic
  7. Being realistic, we all know that that 8 or 12 pence per bottle will be £2 or£3 per bottle extra coming out of your wallet
  8. When it feels like you are pulling nothing I think it is taking up the spring loaded slack in the system. Once all the slack is taken up it is then that the cable actuator pushes against the stiffer lock mechanism. If I remember correctly.
  9. @Kimbers I do occasionally go out for a night time walk, streets are empty so no chance of getting infected, night sky is interesting. 10 o'clock curfew would prevent this unnecessarily. No filching, honest. During the first lockdown I did get a squad car circle round to see if I was up to anything.
  10. Regarding door open when it's not - Is the door latch post loose? Mine worked loose last year on the passenger side without me realising it. It was spotted and tightened up at service by Central Lotus. Windows fuse removal - Hope you don't have to do hand signals.
  11. Is there less sidewall flexing when going round corners with the tighter narrower tyres?
  12. People who want to know what their tyre pressures are without getting out of the car?
  13. Recently, when Bottas is not in front, he does have a tendency to lose places. Maybe Hamilton was being his wingman?
  14. Well I'm thinking about not eating or drinking any of that foreign muck. It's Yorkshire puddings and Yorkshire tea for me in future
  15. Have to say, I think the Mercedes effort was all about getting Bottas to the second position in the championship.
  16. I used to watch Travis Pastrana when he used to race SuperX back in the day on terrrestrial telly. He was awesome then. Others might know of him from the Nitro Circus TV series. He was the first person to do a double back flip on a motocross bike.
  17. Had mine for 1 and 3/4 years and 3 weeks seems right to me. I'd have to check the service history to see when the previous owner fitted the battery. It must be a good one. Last year the door latch post became loose and the passenger door didn't always shut flush, It was spotted when it went in for a service, at that time there was a tendency for the battery to discharge quicker but I didn't notice the interior light coming on. Having said that, it's rare that I don't drive it for more than a week. And now it's probably only due to the lockdown.
  18. As for Verstappen, have to say he was a bit unlucky. Would his evading manoeuvre have been the same if the gravel was a different colour from the track?
  19. Hopefully the stewards will realise it wasn't Russell's mistake but the team's. Russell didn't gain any advantage from the mistake, in fact he was disadvantaged by it. He only had the wrong tyres on for a short distance and that was under safety car and as soon as they realised the mistake it was corrected with a change to the correct tyres.
  20. Has Hamilton got a contract for next year?
  21. I expect Russell's brief will be to finish the race. The Mercedes is a different car from the Williams. Good luck to him.
