    I do think F1 drivers would be smart enough to handle all that lol. If not I'm sure they would have more than a few staff available that could help.
    Lol. F1 is easy, internet racing is tough! /i

      Replicate one of the leading team's own simulators from last year (ie so no secrets) and get all the drivers to use that?

          That was pretty funny.
          .... because every driver experiences the destructive potential of the effortless surge of power available through the smallest of body movements.

            Thats pretty fucking cool. He knows how to draw a crowd and keep people entertained.
            Love how Carlos had no idea who he was and Jarve got all serious when he knew he was been streamed to >90k people!

                  There's a bit of rumbling from some in the paddock this morning that Liberty are selling up as they are likely to breach their loan covenant, the terms of F1's bank loan say it can only be at most 8.25 times its profit.
                  F1's loan is $2.5bn net so they need at least $303m of profit. It was $482m in 2019 but JP Morgan says it could fall below the threshold.

                  New owners for F1 "looking very likely, very soon"


                  Interesting times.

                      Not able to read the full article as its behind a paywall.

                      However, this is no different to when the German media company owner went bust and CVC ended up as owner.

                      I suspect their lenders will just grant them extension, they'll raise fresh equity on the market (effectively diluting Liberty) or sell an interest to someone like Stroll or Bernie.

                      BTW new podcast is up with Flava Flav! Shame its PG rated!

                        Agreed, similar to 2005 when CVC happened, but now F1 is valued at only $700m more than it was then (without inflation).
                        The world is significantly different though, F1 don't yet know they even have a season which means almost zero revenue on the horizon.

                        They are "worth" $2.3bn but owe $2.9~bn.

                          Flav also got the bat flu back in December. Lucky he is covered in lots of young lady liquid to keep him youthful and evidently healthy...
