  1. Wasn’t that technically an Adrian Newey car reverse engineered
  2. To be fair @Freeman it’s pretty easy to not like Ferrari given the unfair advantage they are given by the operators let alone their vito, cheating and lack of penalty when they get caught cheating... I have Italian blood, drive an Italian car, love all things to do with Italy often buying brands from Italy other others and even like Ferrari as a road car (my car is a Ferrari colour) but I can’t get behind the F1 team in any way while they have both financial doping and rule changing power / toys out of pram threats!! Hamilton is a living legend, surely it’s stranger to not like him than be a fan in the same way it’s stranger to not like Roger Federer than love him so you would expect the majority to back him in general let alone a thread about the sport he partakes in?
  3. Data from race sims in practice to lap times on the day, Lewis was faster than Bottas on older tyres - Bottas had the short middle stint as his lap times let Max pass him so the team pitted him, Lewis stayed out and his lap times were better on older tyres so he maintained the gap.
  4. Is the difference between champions and chumpions, it was clear Lewis had faster race pace but tyre issues within the team (high pressures have fucked Mercedes before) so he played the long game staying out of dirty air and extending his tyres while Bottas went after a win that wasn’t there - that couple of laps he tried to stay with Max after his usual piss poor defending will have taken laps out of the tyres. Did you see the state of Lewis’s tyres at the end? They had a window of about 5 laps of serious pushing on a lightly fuelled car so many less on a heavy car when Bottas nerfed his tyre strat. Tyres won max the race, lost Lewis the race and cost Bottas any chance - the Mercedes was much faster than the Red Bull but couldn’t make the tyres last to actually use the pace.
  5. Ehhh, he bumbled around and only got that through attrition and boring the other drivers tyres off a cliff, it was a Perez drive - Vettel had a more exciting drive let alone Albon, Verstappen and Hulk but it’s fun to see Ferrari get so excited about fourth in their #cheatersdontprosper car and hopefully Stroll is going to rip them a new one in the upcoming court case...
  6. It’s fairly clear the Ferrari is a pig and down on power (#cheatingonlypaysforsometems) and Vettel has never been a driver able to drive around a car, one trick pony who is very fast in a fast car that suits him - even RB couldn’t give him what he needs every season and Danny showed he can drive around a car as Leclerc seems to be able to. Id take a Hulk win tomms, Lewis letting him past in the final corner preferably....
  7. Racing point should appeal the Ferrari farce, all the extra dosh from constructor place uplift can pay for defending the Merc clone!
  8. Hmm the Wii u pro pad is crap and an awful shape, Switch pro is best pad ever - they are basically identical in the same way a PS3 pad and PS4 pad are basically identical... Do we have any idea if Astro mix amps and the other variants will work on ps5 yet?
  9. Shame the £70 ‘replica’ looks like a knock off market £20 shirt.....
  10. 464gb free and I can’t update BF5, I mean I love the PS4 but fuck me this is beyond stupid - can you even play BF5 on 500gb PS4? /rant

    The Spurs Thread

    Hmm I have this seasons away, prefer the new away shirt and prev home!
  12. I imagine it’s fairly random, I’ve had ps+ a while but not 10 years and do spend a fair amount on the store - I did get a season 0 Fortnite solo win tho so could be related....
  13. I got it, you would think they would be giving a game or something but not gonna turn my nose up at some free v-bucks
  14. He will hopefully be great for Spurs next season On a serious note he was amazing in the championship last year and has had moments this season, Norwich have several players that are a class above the average of the team and all would do well in bigger teams so it’s a worry for Norwich fans that they will be stripped in the transfer window.
  15. History shows Ferrari cheat the most plus have that vito so get away with it far more
  16. Tesco sell them, we use the Mutti pizza sauce as a base.
  17. I made the mistake of buying a Le Cruset ridged pan, nightmare to use and clean - the flat sizzler pan I have is great, bloody grill marks have a lot to answer for!

    Nope, makes Spurs champions init! On a serious note, any insides on the Arsenal Fan TV stuff that’s going on? I know most on here will not be fans but seems an absolute horror show for the club and I guess a danger of supporting fan made stuff.
  19. We haven’t touched a take away pizza, I can’t think of any restaurant pizza I would want over it either and that’s just a std Neapolitan style pizza - it’s so good! How much was it in the end and what pushed you to the breville over the Effeuno
  20. For PR Vettel is the better choice but Perez is likely to get more out of the car as he can overtake and grab a car by the scruff of its neck and make it over perform - I guess it’s down to which option brings more money to the team.
  21. I finished left behind tonight, tres Bon with a great story and further proof that pleasing as Ellie is much better than playing as Joel - the couple of silly games you play out are brilliant! Two next I guess but may just have a new game+ first...
  22. Was a good win, that fucking shark scared the shite out of me and nearly killed me twice We had a mate of mine who hasn’t played Fortnite for two years with us last night, he did well and good fun was had by all - probably for the best you couldn’t hear me screaming on the comms!!
  23. I finished this today also, I really liked it but mainly because of the music and atmosphere - the story was very good and it did hit me in the feels a few time, I felt compelled to continue and actually want to play it again on a harder difficulty and have gone straight onto the DLC before picking up 2. The above is a statement I never thought I would make so that’s huge praise. I still think the ‘game’ part of it is pretty poor but once I was past the opening couple of hours there is fun to be had in the combat but mainly trying to avoid any gunplay (and maybe that’s the point) as that is ND at its worst imo with cumbersome movement and some terrible hit detection on enemies etc . However where the immersion is almost killed is the formulaic ‘Ohh look at all those bits of cover in a line, I wonder what’s happening here.....’ that even gears of war would be ashamed of - it’s a shame as at other times the combat is genuinely shit scary (my partner recorded me playing it and my reaction was funny as hell, I’d killed clickers and the other bigger arsehole version but wasn’t sure I was in the clear and had genuine relief when over! It’s an odd one for sure, it feels like it could be genuinely one of the best games ever if someone else handled the player movement and combat but despite that I did very much enjoy it when I finally got past the first bit on the third time of asking - I want to play it again, I’m happy to hand wave all sorts of things that generally piss me off in these games because there is definitely something about being in that world with the music and atmosphere. 9/10
  24. It’s Breath of the wild isn’t it, the opening moments and the next (for me) 120 hours of perfection - my only only regret is that you can never experience it for the first time again. Ohh, imagine it was out for lockdown My first victory royale in Fortnite is also up there for me - not many moments have given the same level of exhilaration, relief and sheer joy and I’m still playing the games chasing the same dragon!
  25. Don’t start me.... I gave up on RDR2 due to the controls but I love GTA games in general esp 5!
