Well, they've announced the calendar so we can have a thread now grin

2015 races

Live on the beeb

Congrats Jenson and Jessica!

Will Lewis and Nico snipe at each other all season? Will little Verstappen (must stop calling him Jos jr) impress in his first race? Will Ferrari and McLaren improve or still be a bit shit? Can't wait for Melbourne!

I think McLaren are likely to have learned a fair bit from the last season, and they have a new engine partnership. Honda have a good record, though this ruling seems a little unfair at first sight.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Bottas and Ricciardo deliver this season!

Great to still have Jenson for another season. Enjoyed the end of season Jenson love in the BBC provided.

Hopefully the engine ruling will be turned over bloodly stupid rule.

Ricciardo is just so fantastic would love to see him do really well this year.

Glad we get Canada, Spa and Suzuka live. Hate not seeing the season opener in Australia live.

Well some better news for Honda:

I've only just found this topic, didn't even know it existed! Good to find some people to talk sports to smile

Who are your favourite drivers? I've always been a Jenson fan but Ricciardo impressed last year. Looking forward to the new season after reading about the first day of testing today. 6 weeks!

Excellent, didn't realise we had an F1 thread!

So chuffed Jenson got the drive, I'm hoping he will show Alonso a thing or two. grin

Is anyone going to any of the races this year?

{grin} aka Daniel Riccardio is the 'star in a reasonably priced car' on Top Gear tonight.

magimedi Sun 08-Feb-15 19:38:19

grin is what i meant!

EauRouge Tue 10-Feb-15 22:17:14

He was ace, I wonder if Lewis has been on the phone yet asking for another go grin

What does everyone think of the new cars? The Red Bull is, er.... striking. they're not keeping that, are they?

OberonTheHopeful Wed 11-Feb-15 15:50:10

I thought the design on the Red Bull was just a prototype! It looks like they've some teenagers with spray paints loose on it!!

At least the Ferrari is (marginally) better looking than last year's grin

EauRouge Wed 11-Feb-15 15:56:55

Let's hope it's faster as well!

Just over a month to go smile

OberonTheHopeful Wed 11-Feb-15 16:11:32

I'm counting the days smile

Seff Wed 18-Feb-15 11:36:16

I enjoyed watching Ricciardo on Top Gear. I have also heard that the Red Bull design is a prototype.

I'm quite looking forward to seeing how Jenson and Alonso work as team mates, and I can't believe this will be Jenson's 16th season!

EauRouge Wed 18-Feb-15 11:36:57

Turns out Ricciardo is not universally loved after all grin

More testing coming up this week! I wonder what will happen...

CMP69 Sun 22-Feb-15 14:47:29

Alonso crashed in testing earlier today. Taken to hospital but he appears to be OK

CMP69 Sun 22-Feb-15 14:48:40

Sorry linky one blush

GaryBaldy Sun 22-Feb-15 14:54:50

Oooh yay I've found you all grin

Was on last year's thread under various guises and also on the Fantasy F1 which I am just about to go and check on - will we be doing another this year Eau?

EauRouge Sun 22-Feb-15 17:13:57

Wow, Alonso must have had a nasty shunt there. Glad he is OK.

OK, I have set up a league on this fantasy F1 page. It is passworded so PM me if you want to join in. I can't even remember who won last year, but it wasn't me. The league is called Mumsnet F1, it should be listed on the leagues page unless I've cocked it up.

GaryBaldy Sun 22-Feb-15 22:24:12

Wasn't me either, I'll PM you

magimedi Thu 26-Feb-15 17:43:03

Would love to know the real reason for Alonso's shunt. McClaren are being very cagey about it.

EauRouge Thu 26-Feb-15 18:20:46

Two conflicting reports on whether Alonso will race in Melbourne:

For sure.

Not for sure.

CMP69 Thu 26-Feb-15 20:29:55

Hmm gusty winds hmm and 3 days in hospital for mild concussion all.seems a bit suss for sure - as they love to say in F1 smile

Furball Fri 27-Feb-15 22:26:47

Did you see Question of Sport tonight? - you MUST watch on iplayer of you didn't smile

CMP69 Sat 28-Feb-15 09:39:33

There were rumours online yesterday that Alonso might not drive in Oz. I only watched a bit of QoS yesterday but I cynically wondered if this was a bit of good publicity for CH after the Geri Halliwell shenanigans angry

EauRouge Sat 28-Feb-15 09:52:17

I was busy last night but hopefully I'll get chance to watch it tonight. So has everyone gone right off CH now? I've heard that the Spice Girls are doing a reunion gig for the wedding.
