Some thoughts on the weekend’s TV coverage

At Top Gear, we are F1 fans, no closer to the action than you. You watch F1 from your sofa, Sunday Afternoon Club watches F1 from our sofa. We don’t shape what the BBC does any more than we shape what Sky does. We consume. As you do. And it’s been fairly obvious since we […]

Is this the best F1 simulator… in the world?

In a dark room not entirely unlike the set for Blade Runner a genuine LMP2 test driver called Thomas asks some awkward questions. “Are you physically fit? Have you eaten recently? Do you need the bathroom?” Not really. Can’t remember. I didn’t until now. “The steering wheel is weighted up to 70kg through corners and […]
