Formula One 2017 Thread

Well the 2016 season has ended,

Nico R is the World Champion, but will not be defending his title next year.

So who moves to his seat?

What will the new, lower, wider, noisier cars be like?

What will Bernie be doing, will Ron leave F1 quietly or be hanging around?

Will ALFA Romeo still be going around attached to the back of a Ferrari?

Put your thoughts, ideas, queries in here.

I'm thinking will they really become significantly louder... Now they can develop engines more but basics are the same right?
And will some drivers still suffer from understeer if tyres become wider but the ratio between front and rear tyre width stays similar?

Looks like Manor have gone into administration... again! Hopefully they can be saved.

On a more positive note, Channel 4 are showing Monaco as one of their live races, which although some people don't like, I still like the spectacle of it...

Manor situation is odd... its the holding company effectively that has gone into administration, Manor Grand Prix who hold the licence to race isnt effected... but because the holding company has all the money Manor Grand Prix has no cars

All very confusing

This is always the case in business.
It's for Limited Liability mainly.

First season since 1994 that the reigning champion won’t participate in the championship.

Who’s excited about the 2017 season?

A bit trivial but I like the new Sauber colour scheme.

Interesting little vertical tabs inside the sidepod intakes. They seem asymmetrical.

Some nice looking cars this year. I was a bit disappointed with the Mclaren. Looks like a Virgin/Marussia.
Hope the racing looks as good as the cars.

Two days of testing done, and it does look like the cars are a lot faster now, what do you people think of them?

Mercedes is just as stable as always, Ferrari is fast as in previous years of testing, but doesn't seem to be able to bring it into the races.. Haas seems to have done quite well up until now?

Although notoriously difficult to read into the times, due to fuel loads, engine settings etc... I do think the trackside comments are useful. Gary Anderson is v impressed with how the Ferrari looks..

13:25 Watching this morning, the Ferrari looked planted at every corner I went to. The Mercedes when doing quick runs on new tyres also looked pretty good, but when on longer runs or on softer tyres looked a bit fidgety and was moving around a bit. The Mercedes seems to have more understeer than the Ferrari, because it seems to show more front wheel on turn in because of the extra steering lock. So it looks like Ferrari has a better front end, which bodes very well for when it runs the new tyres, because you need a good front end to get the lap time.

Just hope it won't be the usual borefest when it comes to the races.
