Also, codemasters staff are probably pretty pissed off right now - game launches in a week!
They've already redone the Williams one so I think at this pace they'll be fine.

The car looks awesome now. Probably will be the first black car to win any races since Lotus in 2013 and a championship since Andretti's in 1978

Damn right. That car is a beauty.

Favourite moment? Where they break down at Catalunya within 200m of each other (a lap apart) with almost simultaneous engine failures! :haha:

Textures are quickly changed and they can sell the "classic" 2020 Mercedes livery as DLC

I wanted to avoid Like buttons in forums where actual discussion is important. It's much better for people to reply to each other, than just click a button.

That Arrows gets a whopping thumbs up from me though :)

I redid the graph from earlier with just the seasons average race speed. Still think that is the best way to compare years against each other. I've included also a line for +/- one standard deviation from the average. Which is surprisingly constant across the years, I would have guessed it would narrow down as tracks got more similar to each other. There is a slight decrease in width but it's only 0.24 kph/year.

I was surprised to see the size of the dip around 2010. I knew the V8s and skinny wings slowed the cars a bit, but not thinking it was that much. Only in the last 2 years has it started to come back to the height of the V10 era.

Any prediction on the effect of the new 2021/22 Aero rules?

Word is slower than the current generation, if the graph is anything to go by I would say a plateau is most likely.

Can someone please explain "Vallteri, it's James". I know it's been a while, but I still don't get it.

I always loved that car, it looked so good. I have a signed picture of Mika Salo from back then, he's wearing shades and you can see a reflection of the car in his shades, it's a brilliant picture.
Just so you all know, and to prevent confusion, I am indeed a woman ;)
