    Let's start with a pole, who will be the first driver to blame his accident on the Halo and claim his vison was impaired due to it?

    My guess is kid Tommy Lance Stroll...

    Kimi Raikkonen’s race engineer David Greenwood has left Scuderia Ferrari ahead of the 2018 Formula 1 season. Greenwood joined Ferrari for 2015, having held the role of chief engineer at Marussia, and has spent the last three seasons working with KimiRaikkonen. He has left the team for personal reasons and will return to the UK, where it is understood he will take up a role on Manor’s World Endurance Championship project.

    The British team will step up to the privateer LMP1 ranks for the WEC’s 2018/19 ‘superseason’ using Ginetta’s new prototype. The Maranello team has yet to make a decision on who will replace David Greenwood, but one is expected in the coming weeks. As part of the minor reshuffle, its former pitwall-based operations chief Diego Ioverno will no longer travel to races and will instead work from the factory.

    It remains unclear as to whether he will be directly replaced or if his duties will be split between engineering staff at the track. One option is that Jock Clear takes on some of those duties as part of his role as head of race activities. Further adjustments to the structure and respective staff duties are expected in the coming weeks ahead of pre-season testing, which starts on 26 February.

    Scuderia Ferrari will unveil its 2018 F1 challenger on February – its new car successfully passed the relevant FIA static and frontal crash tests in December, believed to be the first new model to do so.

    I miss Gran Prix International's gossip column, it was a wonderful thing. But they folded 25 years ago, and I stopped obsessively following F1 while Senna was still alive.

    Keke Rosberg crank calling everyone in the hotel in the middle of the night after the last race of the season pretending to be Sochiro Honda :-)

    So this is the 2018 F1 haters/lovers thread. Where is the thread for those of us who are neither, but are merely sad because there is no longer any racing in F1? It is truly the worlds most costly parade procession. :(

    For me, it's been WRC and MotoGP. Both awesome and so competitive. WRC had seven different winners in thirteen events in 2017. It's hard to find in NA, so I ended up subscribing.

    They still doing that? Do they know the "SC" in the acronyme stands for "stock car"???

    I have not seen Toyota's with v8's at my local dealer... Must be an american thing...

    That stopped being fun for me when they went away from stock cars and the cars started to look all the same...
