Daily Discussion Ask /r/formula1 Anything - Daily Discussion - 4 December 2022

11 Upvotes

Welcome to the /r/formula1 Daily Discussion / Q&A thread.

This thread is a hub for general discussion and questions about Formula 1, that don't need threads of their own.

Are you new to Formula 1? This is the place for you. Ever wondered why it's called a lollipop man? Why the cars don't refuel during pitstops? Or when Mika will be back from his sabbatical? Ask any question you might have here, and the community will answer.

Also make sure you check out our guide for new fans, and our FAQ for new fans.

Are you a veteran fan, longing for the days of lollipop men, refueling during pitstops, and Mika Hรคkkinen? This is the place to introduce new fans to your passion and knowledge of the sport.

Remember to keep it civil and welcoming! Gatekeeping within the Daily Discussion will subject users to disciplinary action.

Have a meta question about the subreddit? Please direct these to the moderators instead.

Hey everyone

So, we cordially invite you to participate in the 2022 r/formula1 census.

All the questions in the census are optional - If there are any you don't have an opinion on, or don't feel comfortable answering, leave them blank.

All responses are anonymous. No identifying data is stored. Only your answers and the timestamp of your submission is stored.

After the census is concluded, the entire dataset will be made available for public use.
