When they talked to one of the principles during the second red flag period they talked about clutch life potentially being a problem (though the guy said they probably had like 7 starts in the clutch)

While a standing start fixes the crash-on-restart issue it would be hilarious for one cars clutch to fail, bringing out a safety car, and another standing start, where a cars clutch fails

and by hilarious I mean I wonder if anyone would even finish

Lmfao itís not going to be an extra 20 seconds. Thereís going to an extra formation lap so the delicate babies can get their tires up to temperature and then the fact that restarts are just going to bring the safety car back out more often.

selfie cameras show a mirror image so it's mirroring the mirror image to make it look right again.

I don't want to wait, I want him given the Ceaușescu treatment. I reckon we could knock it out in the space of a red flag.

They already bitch about the tires being cold because the safety car isnít fast enough. Thereís no way they donít do a formation lap. And again the whole crashing on the start bringing out the safety car poo poo.

Biggest highlight of the last race was Di Resta trying to explain to Crofty that Russel had actually lost places so wasn't having a fantastic race.

Is there any hope of David Croft being replaced in the near future?

For them it was a big success. Half the field wrecked out and the Ferraris were not one of them.

Sadly no, he's basically tenured at this point.

It genuinely aggravates me how he is paid to commentate on F1 and gets access that viewers would kill for, yet his trick for calling cars is to randomly guess which driver it is for the team. I swear half the time the idiot moron fucker calls the wrong driver. As I, the viewer, questions what the gently caress this shouting, sweaty sack of lard is actually adding to the coverage of the event.

He should gently caress off back to darts commentary. That's entirely his crowd.

Realistically, Toyota is gonna win overall at a canter again. I just hope the new EoT levels are enough for the Rebellions to keep them honest.

In LMP2 I'm pulling for the Algarve/G-drive Auris with Nick Tandy and Ollie Jarvis (and some silver driver)

GTE Pro, I'd like the Risi Ferrari to win, but I'd be okay with a Porsche win too, really I just want to see a good close entertaining race, same with GTE Am.
