Mercedes have more to shout about, and Horner is just the media mouthpiece put up by Red Bull as he has nothing better to do during the race.

Gaaaaaaaaaaah! I have English friends, eyes, and ears so I know this to be true, but I've never been able to figure out why. Every time a Brit opens their mouth I automatically think they're smarter than me and I feel under dressed.


As for Zak, I really like him! He's doing more to engage the American F1 fans than anyone I've seen. Most of the season he would call into the NBC race broadcast and do an interview during the race. Being a McLaren fan, I thought this was awesome. Bringing Alonso over for the 500 was a HUGE deal too.

bit of an F1 coincidence seeing this thread today as i just read the Zak Brown guest blog he posted today on James Allen's blog site.

https://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2018/...bout-for-2018/

some general thoughts on F1 for 2018 as well as thoughts on other categories. nothing groundbreaking but straightforward comments without any RonSpeak so thats something!

a bit off topic but next month there will be a 4 episode documentary on Amazon Prime about Mclaren's 2017 season.

will wait to see how much access/insightful it is but surely not something Ron would have done.

it’s funny, if you focus on one person being quoted on the motorsport network nonsense and read all their quotes at once it becomes blindingly apparent a great deal of articles are produced from one reasonably short conversation, and often a month or so prior at this time of year.

some people may say tenths is losing popularity, i’d say it’s more that people on here realise that often there’s not a great deal to talk about that changes often enough for fresh debate every few days. unfortunately, the 24 hour press nowadays can’t get away with publishing nothing for a few days.

...combined. At least there is substance to what they say backed up on the track.

I loved the way he said we don't need a title sponsor in reaction to not getting one (after him previously saying it was a priority for 2018...). He may as well have said no, we don't need 100m free cash to help the team.

Actually, McLaren have form for this - "A Season with McLaren" from the 93 season was a six parter shown on BBC 2 over the winter of 94 and very good actually. Ron was heavily involved and showed his many sides, some good, some not so as is Ron.

I have to admit I quite like Zak Brown - yes he talks a lot of ******** but so do all of the people the teams shove out in front of the microphone. The reason I like him is quite simple - he's a genuine racer, he loves the sport - his collection of cars (that he drives in anger not just garaged) is the sort of thing we all dream of. So yes he's full of corporate waffle but on the whole - a decent bloke to have involved I think.

Indeed we have to thank him for letting Fred do the Indy 500 and now the Daytona 24. And hopefully also the LM24

And yes I was thinking of that BBC Documentary too when the above poster said that Ron probably wouldn’t do a documentary.
