    Gran Turismo 7: Latest news and discussion thread (March 2022)

    I hate to be that guy, and I got really excited when reading pre orders were open, but anyone else think an extra £20 for essentially just a steelbook isn't that special? I was expecting something lik a GT5 signature edition or GT Sport collector's edition with more physical items. Hopefully...

    Anyone else notice that Ocon got given a penalty for squeezing Vettel in the braking zone at turn 4 but Leclerc didn't for the exact same thing against Hamilton 2 years ago? The start of the Leclerc penalty evasion. :)

    About the incident. Max is more of a car length behind at the end of the braking zone for the first apex. Lewis would have seen him at this point, but there's a point where he has to look at the apex and turn in with however much speed he decides with on cold tyres. The next time Lewis would see...

    If what you're suggesting is true and if teams are currently willing to use each engine 25% less (20% if increased to 4) by sacrificing 1 round, that suggests the allocation amount is too low, does it not? 3 also leaves absolutely no room for terminal damage.

    How many drivers are expected to take a a new engine(s) and take a penalty this year? They should just increase the allocation to 4 to avoid all the mess that comes with it for the sake of a couple million $.

    Perez gets driver of the day for again performing his routine of messing up his own race and overtaking some cars a couple seconds slower a lap than his.

    Formula 1 Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix 2021

    The best chance we had for an on track battle for the win was after the first stop where Bottas was holding Max up. Unfortunately Giovinazzi and maybe Russell too came out of the pits between Max and Lewis, and I think it was Gio who held Lewis up the most. The gap to Max went from 1.5 to 2.7ish...

    I get that, but what is the benefit in forcing a classification? Are there financial reasons behind it with sponsors etc? Do they not have to refund the fans now? No one enjoyed watching them roll behind the SC for a few laps. It wasn't a race.

    Why though? I don't get it.

    If heavier rain is predicted in 15 then I don't see the point in starting this race to only red flag it in 10 laps time.

    The General Airplane Thread

    The other day 2 old military jets flew over really low past my house and I just happened to be looking out of the window. Too quick to grab a picture but I've only just decided to check what they were. According to flight tracker they were BAC 167 Strikemasters flying at 250 kts at 300 ft...

    Sports Cars 2021 Endurance Racing Discussion Thread - WEC, ELMS etc

    :rolleyes: If it was related to something else then why did Jim get offended so much so that he blocked everyone - a bunch of racing drivers like Lucas Di Grassi included - that merely commented and posted their opinion? Right, so he's referring to Aston Martin with replies like: "Racing at...

    Formula 1 Rolex Magyar Nagydíj 2021

    On Ted's notebook he said that Merc suggested Lewis would have come out of the pits between 8th and 10th after having to wait for the train to go past. Edit: just checked - Alonso bunched the pack up to ensure he didn't have to wait for Ocon's stop to finish, so worse Lewis would have came out...

    Formula 1 Rolex Magyar Nagydíj 2021

    If Bottas did what Alonso did to secure his teammate a victory, he would have been ridiculed for it and definitely wouldn't have been given driver of the day. Crazy when you think of it like that isn't it?

    Formula 1 Rolex Magyar Nagydíj 2021

    1. He drove no slower than any other driver in front of him. There was a queue of cars going down the pitlane. What difference does it make if he is on Bottas' gearbox or 50m up the road? 2. He really didn't. If he wanted to, he probably would have. 3. No, he didn't. Here is the list of...

    Formula 1 Rolex Magyar Nagydíj 2021

    RB could have avoided that if 1. they went fast enough on their first q3 laps and 2. came out of the pits before Merc just like they did with Max on the first run. At least Horner admitted it was gamesmanship. I don't expect the same from their fans though.

    GTA Online Thread (Useful Links in OP)

    They don't switch back when you drive outside, so you can actually use them in the city. But I read they switch back to the standard ones when you quit the game. But yeah you still can't drift. There's that weird traction control that limits the rear wheels from spinning and breaking traction...

    Thanks! My thinking of going the Saturday rather than Sunday was purely being able to see 2 F1 sessions - one being a race (hopefully) - so we can go to Copse for FP2 and somewhere with a bit more wheel to wheel action for the sprint race. Not to mention Saturday being a bit cheaper and with...

    Taking my Dad on the Saturday so he can witness how fast these things are through Copse and Maggots and Becketts. Hoping for at least some action in the sprint race, looking forward to it anyway. Judging by fp1, easy pole for Max. I'm hoping Lewis can start 2nd at least and attack Max on that...

    Formula 1 Formula 1 BWT Grosser Preis Der Steiermark 2021

    Without trying to sound dramatic, beginning of the end for a tight championship battle in my opinion. Also RB knowing how to take a point off a rival by pitting Perez unlike Merc with Bottas last week. Will be impressive if they pull this off and end up taking Bottas.
