    Hi
    You can see what they are trying to achieve, but here's one thing you can't regulate away: one or more manufacturers prepared to burn unlimited money maximising whatever the rules allow. ...

    Hi,
    so boiling it all down, only Mercedes and Ferrari can make F1 engines work properly.

    Hi Ken,
    I don't know about trends in petrol prices, but Nagaman and me were just commenting about the international price of crude. That has been going up in every currency, and quite a bit in...

    Hi,
    I don't reckon anyone is in a position to announce that world crude prices are going up or down, especially down. The producers can't even make it go up when they want to, and no large group...

    Hi Ken,
    I think the reason the legislative action isn't producing any discernbile effect for long suffering motorists in Queensland, is that it isn't February 2018 yet, so the law hasn't started...

    Hi Kim,
    I think the poster is referring to Vitol, which bought the Shell branded businesses in Australia a few years back, though it seems hard to know who really owns it.

    Hi Ken
    Why?
    Personally, I find it helpful to ask other people's opinions as part of working out what I think. Don't you?

    Hi,
    I gather the head of Red Bull hinted that Aston Martin may be interested in getting into the F1 engine business, and supply them with engines.

    HI,
    So, basically, it sounds like the entire field is starting at the back of the field!
    Maybe they should just line them all up in the same order starting at the last grid place?

    I get that it...

    Hi
    As best I can see it, the 'problems' with electric cars do not include lack of performance.
    I reckon the real 'problems' with them will be these...

    Hi,
    I took the trouble to call the mechanic I sometimes use and asked him about this withholding information thing.

    He reckons that he has four scan tools to cover pretty much all cars, and that...

    Programmable keys

    This isn't about French cars, but it sure makes you think carefully about those troublesome programmed keys which are everywhere these days.

    Hi,
    I would like to point out that when you look at road deaths, as a well studied number, Australia fares no worse than Germany and is actually right in line with most of Europe. So it is hard to...

    Poor Kimi. The indignities you have to suffer to earn $20 million a year to thrash other people's cars.

    Lappi a happy chappy!
    That was really tough luck for Latvala, but it is always good to see champions filtering to the top.

    I reckon Toyota management and the Gazoo guys must be fully stoked at...

    To be fair to Msr Ogier, even if you're the best, you still need the hardware to keep up with you if you want to thrash everyone. Just ask Snr Alonso. Seb Ogier was in such a 'groove' with VW...

    Hi,
    I reckon the whole story sounds a bit suss, coming from VAG. If there was some conspiracy, odd that they never said anything a year ago. Also as only VAG actually has cheating software.
