So that Honda seems like a helluva engine. Alonso will definitely be 2015 WDC.

^^McLaren tested the Honda-engined variant of the MP4-29 (that's the MP4-29H1X1, which is a very silly name) today at Abu Dhabi. For 3 laps.

Fuel datalogging issue, apparently; though we only know this because Vandoorne hasn't got the memo about being nonspecifically optimistic, since nobody else seems to be admitting it:

Both of them are bad drivers.

I won't specifically deny that remark, I'll only confirm that one is cool and worth supporting while the other is a fraud and a bad person and is also named Sebastian Vettel.

Human Grand Prix posted:

I actually thought Vettel was talented, and it wasn't just the car. I mean, he was faster than Webber right? Then I realized that was never the case, and Webber is embarrassingly bad.

Webber wasn't that slow, he suffered from 2nd driver syndrome at Red Bull, having the car made just for Sebby with little consideration to him. This is also known as Schumacher-itis, and has been known to afflict otherwise reasonable drivers Massa and Barichello.

I'll write a bio for what it's worth, if you need extra hands.

Also, is the F1 thread just going to be F1 or are we doing GP2/GP3 as well next year?

People talk about GP2 sometimes in the F1 threads, you're more than welcome to, but they don't get that much interest to begin with. That's probably a reason to include them in the F1 thread rather than a deterrent though.

I'd rather we don't GP2 or 3 in here but instead use the Misc thread because I usually can't watch them until after the f1.

To be fair they've got an engine they can't even keep running for more than 3 non consecutive laps. Removing a marital aid from the front of their car probably isn't their top priority.
