    A new chapter for turboduck!

    Wow Diablo, I knew you were old, but retirement?! :cheeky: I have to say a big thanks for everything you've done for this place and for me over the years Andy, this place became a refuge for many of us when either the offline world was getting too much or simply too boring. I know how much time, effort and money you've put into this place and I hope you enjoy having the weight of this place lifted off of your shoulders. Make sure to keep in touch!

    Top Gear Series 25 - Starts Feb 25th

    I agree with you Diablo, that Japan episode of TG was one of the best episodes in the history of TG I think. It struck the balance between car nerd / entertainment absolutely perfectly.

    The Grand Tour - It's showtime for Season 2!

    No, I don't have much spare time at the moment.... is it worth me wasting what little time I have watching S02E01 or nah? :hmmm: I was hoping it would be good. Is it as good as bad TG? or as bad as bad TGT?

    F1 2017: News/Calendar/Updates

    Congratulations to Hammy on that 4th Championship, the start to this year's Driver's champ was good but ever since Singapore Vettel seemed to lose traction in the competition. Baku being a race he'll want to forget for the foreseeable future. Hoping Red Bull will be in a position to fight at the front next year, having Verstappen and Ricciardo in contention for the driver's title would be amazing. Will be interesting to see where McLaren end up in the grid too.

    Good race, and I'm glad Max won it. Really good to see him have some good fortune after how crap this season has turned out to be for him. The Vettel/Stroll post-race incident was rather bizarre :hmmm: But I've been wondering for a while how we don't have more post-race bumps considering how no one seems to be watching where they're going.

    Red Dead Redemption 2: Official Trailer #2

    Trailer is nothing too special, but i’m still looking forward to this game. It’s usually easier to see the graphics improvements between GTA games, the improvements over the original RDR aren’t that obvious just yet.

    I understand you might think others are being 'haters' and wanting to overly punish vettel for his behaviour, and you're probably right to some extent but you're also being too forgiving at the same time. Max, Kimi & Alonso are huge fan favourites, tens/hundreds of thousands of SGD will have been spent by spectators in the stands wanting to see them race. Vettel's aggression/ego got in the way of that and they won't be getting that money back. If this was an isolated incident then I'd be more willing to just drop it but it isn't, and it won't be the last incident because he got away with it. Labeling this as a racing incident sets a dangerous precedent.

    :lol: Oh dear. I'm not asking for either Ferrari driver to be whipped in public or banned from a race, but surely you've seen people get punished for much less? :fp: Causing a collision is enough for a punishment for any other team than Ferrari. The Ferraris caused that collision did they not? Max was an innocent dutchman in a Ferrari sandwich. You're the one bringing up haters and fanboys here, can you not see how hilarious that is given the situation? Vettel ended his own race, Max's race, Raikkonen's race & Alonso's race. But nah, racing incident isn't it. I can see why some would split the blame between Vettel and Kimi but splitting the blame does not mean they're innocent. If I were max or Alonso i'd be asking questions as to the credibility of the FIA and the rest of the sport at the moment tbh.

    Mercedes got very very lucky today. Good driving from Hamilton. Pretty interesting race, it lasted slightly too long though. FIA :shrug: Lap one was a racing incident? Really? :lol: So far up Vettel's/Ferrari's backside it's unreal.

    Thanks! Test drove a fair few vehicles, but the Mercedes always felt the most special to be behind the wheel of even though the interior is a bit old now compared to an Audi A3 for example. That steering wheel just felt & looked the best. Will be good to finally drive a car with apple carplay too. Love the BMW 2 series on the outside but BMW interiors (other than the new 5/7 series) are just awful aesthetically.

    May or may not have treated myself to a new car :ytwh: Not sure when it's being delivered, but hopefully sooner rather than later before there are too many 67 plate cars on the road. Should look identical to this, will post pics when it arrives.

    It sounds as if Red Bull are going to announce they're splitting from Renault at the end of the year.....? Where does this leave them, I know they wanted Toro Rosso to go with Honda engines and give Honda time to make the engines work, but are they going to actually risk the senior Red Bull team on Honda engines too? The Renault engine hasn't been very reliable either but if reliability has fractured their relationship with Renault, how will they last with Honda? :shrug: Are they going to try and make their own engine? Are they going to try and get a Mercedes or Ferrari engine? It's a bit confusing.
