    NASCAR news

    Next year in F1, Daniel Ricciardo returns to Red Bull as a reserve/test driver, while his place at McLaren is taken by 2021 Formula 2 champion and current Alpine reserve driver Oscar Piastri. F2 driver Logan Sargeant takes Nicholas Latifi's place at Williams. Nico Hulkenberg returns to F1 to replace Mick Schumacher at Haas. 2021 Formula E World Champion Nyck de Vries joins F1 to replace Pierre Gasly at Alpha Tauri. Gasly moves to Alpine to replace Fernando Alonso, and Alonso moves to Aston Martin to replace Sebastian Vettel. Driver line-ups at Red Bull, Ferrari, Mercedes and Alfa Romeo remain the same as this year. In other news, McLaren Racing boss Zak Brown has called for a change to the current driver qualification system to make it easier for IndyCar drivers to join F1 by employing a similar 'super-licence' system to Formula 2. It was also announced last week that next year's Chinese Grand Prix has been cancelled due to the country's Covid policies.

    NASCAR news

    I've been a bit lazy reporting the last couple of races of the F1 season because the Drivers' and Constructors' Championships had already been decided. The season finished on November 20th, but it's taken me a week to post the review. Like last year, the final race of the season was in Abu Dhabi, but this time without the controversial ending. For the race, the top three teams qualified in pairs, with the Red Bulls on the front row, the Ferraris on the second row and the Mercedes on the third row. This year's champion, Max Verstappen, got a good start and never looked back, taking an easy win for a record-breaking 15th time in a season. Lewis Hamilton had a first lap incident with Carlos Sainz and great game of cat and mouse with Sergio Perez, but eventually had to retire with hydraulic issues. It's the first year of his F1 career where he hasn't had a pole position or win. Charles Leclerc held off Sergio Perez to claim second place in the race and the Drivers' Championship, and also secured Ferrari's second place in the Constructors' Championship ahead of Mercedes. A fair bit of the weekend's coverage was devoted to four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel, who has decided to retire from F1. He managed to claim a single point for finishing 10th in his final race. You can watch the race highlights here.

  5. The list certainly has quite a few questionable entries. What I found weird is that the picture they used for #23 is a publicity shot of Joaquin Phoenix as The Bandit from the re-make 'Smokey and the Bandit Rides Again' which was originally due for release in 2020. As far as I can see, this reboot has disappeared without trace.

    One Word Song Titles

    I never intended this to be a tribute thread, but it seems to be a good place to collect the tributes. I'd love to see more posts here of one word song titles by people who hadn't just died! Tonight I've just read that Irene Cara has died at 63, although the cause of death has not been released. Along with "Flashdance - What a Feeling", Fame is probably her best known song.
  7. I'm not a big soccer fan, and I didn't watch last night's game, but while you can get thrilling 0-0 matches, I'd always prefer a few goals. You don't often get 5-5 draws - most matches a won by one or two goals. From what I've read, last night's game wasn't one of the thrilling ones, and the England players were booed of the pitch. BTW. Does US TV show each half of a soccer match commercial-free, or do they takes breaks during the play?
  8. Well, it turned out to be a 0-0 draw. England now have to play their neighbors, Wales, while the USA play Iran.
  9. Talking of 'Any goals in 2022?', the USA play England in the World Cup tomorrow night. It's now 56 years since England won the World Cup (we may mention it occasionally ), but we never stop believing!
  10. Tom Hanks I deleted whatever weird code it was that you managed to post.

  13. It happens in some movies. If you look at the cast and crew of 'The Godfather', over half of the actors (mostly the ones without named parts) are uncredited. Paul Baxley was also uncredited as second unit director on 'The Godfather'. As you go down the crew list, most of the second unit, the art department, the sound department, the stunts, the camera and electrical department, the editorial department, the musical department, etc., etc. all go uncredited.
  14. I've never looked into it before, so it's news to me. According to his IMDb page, his role as stunt coordinator on 'The Godfather' was uncredited. He was also stunt coordinator on other movies I like such as 'It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World', 'Coogan's Bluff' and 'Diamonds Are Forever'. I guess I can dig it, man!
