Driving-wise it looks about as realistic as Accolade's old Test Drive-turned-into-GP-game from 1988: https://www.myabando...cuit-ga/play-ga

that game by accolade was teh best!!! I miss it. The mobile game looks nice. I am not a racing driver, I'd like to have fun, so I don't care for realism...

You can play Grand Prix Circuit in the browser on the My Abandonware page. I have set a 1:09.6 at Monza in the McLaren MP4/4...

Correct me if I am wrong, they are counting people 1, 2 and 3 times.

FOM have always counted the people who buy the three day passes as three separate attendees to fudge their numbers higher.

It's a good job there are twenty one billion people in the world to provide all these spectators and viewers.

How about losing a big contract for failure to address piracy issues?

^ Interesting story. Not sure how culpable Liberty are here, but it could certainly affect their income. The Saudi Arabian government deny involvement in a well-funded organisation transmitting free coverage of Football and F1, where the programmes are pirated from a Qatari-based television company. The suggestion is this might be part of the current stand-off between Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

 

Wonder if these illegal transmissions reach South London, and if the Qatari commentator is better than David Croft...

So for those of us who know bugger all about the NFL draft, what's the big deal and how does it fill the void of the off-season?

It adds repeative speculation that makes you say 'let's just get on with it already?'and 'boy they sure try hard to make this a year round thing'

Imo..
