Didn't get any reply, but it works again well.

There is some confusion over the Karam-Saavedra situation.
"I'm grateful to Chip and the team for their ongoing commitment to me, and I can't wait to get back in the car at Barber," Karam said.
Saavedra, who has been available since parting with KV at the end of last season, will race at Barber the Indy road course - where he earned pole last year - and Sonoma.
"I'm looking forward to Long Beach" (Saavedra)
Not exactly straight forward.

"The Srakka Dome-Nissan S103, the only LMP2 runner on Michelin tyres, was quickest in class with Jonny Kane driving.
His time of 2m23.672s put him just over a second clear of the Dunlop-shod Jota Sport Gibson-Nissan 015S in the hands of Harry Tincknell.
Porsche led the way in GTE Pro: Kevin Estre, on loan from McLaren for this race, topped the times on a 2m26.055s, which put him six tenths up on Manthey team-mate Frederic Makowiecki."
Kane's time with the Strakka was 2.32.672 and Estre's time was 2.36.065 - according the result list posted in the same article.

From Dieter Rencken's otherwise excellent open letter to CVC.
Ironically, on the eve of last week's Strategy Group meet, F1 celebrated exactly 65 years since its 1950 inauguration.
65 years since the start of the World Championship. Formula 1 dates back a couple of years before then.

"When you see the effort in this team over the last 24 months with this being the ultimate goal, you're still extremely proud because you know the toil and graft that goes into it."
In this context graft just means hard work, effort.

"Toro Rosso's Max Verstappen, who had a drive-through penalty for making contact with Williams' Valtteri Bottas, battled his way up to a career-best fourth place."
The drive-through wasn't for the contact with Valtteri but for speeding during the SC period.

http://www.autosport...t.php/id/120863: "Carlos Sainz Jr was two seconds off the pace in eighth, but he pipped Toro Rosso team-mate Max Verstappen by just 0.019s."
Verstappen was seventh and Sainz ninth - as your own list of practice times in the same article shows. I guess you missed Max's later improvement.

I upgraded to Win 10 some time ago. Auto login was working for Autosport for a while but has now stopped.
I haven't changed any settings and can't see why it's not working.
The same problem occurs on a couple of other sites but others are unaffected.

I can't quote posts from my home or work computer. (I am using Windows 7) I know, old news, but any help?

Try toggling the icon at the top left of the reply box that looks like a light switch. This turns the format from WYSIWYG to a much more basic format which is more user-friendly. Doing this is the only way that I (and many others) can insert links, quotes, images etc. It's a very unsatisfactory situation that doesn't look as if it will ever be resolved.

Not having much luck with the left light switch.
I will find another way.

"with the 17-year-old sliding into a barrier out of the exit of Turn 16, one of the slower sections of the track."
Max turned 18 last month, a fact much publicised - also at this site. Silly and stupid error.

An update to the technical regulations, published on Wednesday, confirmed that from July 1 total power from the Williams Advanced Engineering battery will be capped at 250kW, up from 200kW.
As from 01 July 2016 The maximum total power going out of the RESS is limited to
200 kW 250 kW200kW .
It looks like they are staying at 200 kW instead of increasing to 250 kW...
Posted 08 January 2016 - 12:40
Guys, you have now confused me. That it will stay on 200 kW level was already in the regulations released on Wednesday, the same day you have reported otherwise. There are no amendments since then? Just confused... thanks.

"The situation surrounding Maldonado's seat has been further complicated by the fact a general election was held in Venezuela in early December, with president Nicolas Maduro being deposed as leader."
The election was for choosing a new parliament. It was not a presidential election, so Maduro is not deposed. He is still president.

You are still missing the features from 1 to 6 January

From the Gary Anderson Q&A
3) Mid-corner is the most complicated area. The car is loaded up so some roll will be evident, and also some yaw to generate the tyres' slip angle, plus steering lock. How much steering lock you have will depend on the corner radius, but something like three degrees for fast corners, six degrees for medium-speed and nine degrees for slow-speed is about right.
Is he talking about slip angle, steering lock(the angle of the wheel in the hands) or steering lock(the wheel of the wheels on the ground)? Those figures sound right for tire slip, way way too low for steering wheel angle. Depending on the ratio of steering-to-wheels, maybe correct for the angle of the front wheels themselves?
Each of these components will then be designed to to this level plus a safety factor

Does anyone actually read this topic or do people report things that will be ignored anyway?
