F5[edit]

DH, can you clarify what this edit did because even though I've taken screenshots, before and after, I cannot see what the difference is. Ta. Eagleash (talk) 12:41, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Never mind. I've spotted it now. There was one missing pipe, which oddly, seems to have made no difference to how the table displayed. :P Eagleash (talk) 14:16, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi Eagleash. The edit adds the missing bottom and right-hand side borders to the bottom cell in the "17" column (well it does on my browser anyway - perhaps it's different on different browsers). Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 20:47, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
I see; yes it could be that, or other problems I've found with columns & tables have related to screen resolution. Ta. Eagleash (talk) 23:08, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes I think there must be some peculiar anomaly as here. I have only 20 columns for the table before and after your edit and it makes no difference to the way it displays to me. I think the extraneous '5' must have arisen when I thought about starting a 1971 line for 'Dinger' but he only practised a TS7 once and it seems the convention is not to include that sort of thing. Eagleash (talk) 14:05, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
No, that one was a mistake on my part: I thought you had intended to increase the rowspan for the Year column to 5 (i.e. so that it included the "Source" row) and that there were 20 columns excluding the Year column. So when I changed the rowspan back to 4, I incremented the colspan to 21, without actually counting the columns. I now see that there are 20 columns including Year, so I have changed the colspan back to 20. Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 22:14, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you...[edit]

...for taking care of almost all the dead links in the F1 race reports!! Zwerg Nase (talk) 22:51, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

No worries. I've finished tagging the dead links in all the race report articles, but there are still a few which need to be fixed. DH85868993 (talk) 13:06, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Brabham BT43[edit]

Hello and thank-you for your message.

As a new Contributor I don't know if this is the correct way to reply to your message but it seemed the only way I could work out how to.

The BT43 Article was something that I always wanted to see and my effort was only meant to be a draft so that I could learn what is required to make a Wikipedia Page/Article. I have used multiple sources varying from the actual people involved to Newspapers, Magazines, Books, and finally Websites primarily The Nostalgia Forum on Autosport. However as I have yet to learn how to cite References and make Tables it has a long way to go.

The only reason it was up as an actual Page was because I found out that a (blank) Page already existed after I started the draft that was redirected to the Brabham Article. So I experimented to deleted the redirect and put the draft text onto the actual Page and reassign it as a draft. I did the first two parts but couldn't work out how to do the last so I gave up and went to bed to sleep on it only to find this morning (probably expectedly) the criticisms so I have deleted the draft text from the draft Page and copied and pasted the text from the actual Page (in case that actual Page incorporated any late edits) onto the draft Page this morning.

Hope this helps.

Hello again :

Looks like someone found something wrong with Bob Paton's photo of the BT43 when he completed it. I was wondering if you could let me know what was wrong with it as I can't see what was wrong with it?

Thanks again.

Regards

Dora Domino (talk) 06:45, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

From memory, I think you had permission for the photo be used on Wikipedia - is that right? For a photo to be hosted at Commons, I think it needs permission to be used anywhere. Did you upload the photo to Commons or English Wikipedia? The permission you have might allow the photo to be hosted at Wikipedia instead (most photos used in Wikipedia are hosted at Commons, but some are hosted locally). But that's just a guess - you might be better asking the user who deleted the image from Commons (Hystrix) - here is a link to their talk page. Hope this helps. DH85868993 (talk) 07:00, 15 February 2016 (UTC)


Hello :

Many thanks for that I think you've hit the nail on the head. Pretty sure I loaded it up to Commons as it seemed to come up during the process as the thing to do. I might just try to upload it again just to Wikipedia itself and see how that goes. Otherwise might contact Bob again and see what he is OK with.

How do you think the Draft will go with the Review? I think there are a couple of loose ends still but I reckon it's more accurate when compared to that one on the Lola T332 particularly with regards to Specs in the Infobox.

Once again many thanks.

Regards

Lola T371[edit]

As far as I recall (and BB and I did a lot of work on this when Taki first started messing with things) Stommelen raced the car as T371 in S. Africa. In Spain it became GH1 and was given to Migault(?) and Stom raced 'GH2' (later re-designated to a GH1) to have his big accident. (Not the same as the GH2 chassis that never raced). Whether it should be included I really don't know. Eagleash (talk) 22:39, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

If it raced as T371, then it should be listed in the template. Thanks for letting me know. DH85868993 (talk) 22:44, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
Just looked at 'Jenks' here Stom used T371/HU1 at Saffer which became GH1/HU371/1 at Esp. Eagleash (talk) 22:49, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
Cool. Thanks. I learn something every day on Wikipedia! DH85868993 (talk) 23:01, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Just my two cents worth but keep in mind when doing your research that even Programmes from the event can be "incorrect" as they were printed well in advance of the Event and can contain colloquialisms and even errors which is why it is sometimes good to buy Programmes with someone's "corrections" written into them (that is if they were actually there to verify those "corrections"). Yes Stommelen is entered in "HU371/1" (Note : what the printed designation is and not "T371/HU1" as would be a normal Lola designation) for the 1975 South African Grand Prix as seen at :
http://www.racingsportscars.com/covers/_Kyalami-1975-03-01e.jpg
Note too that in the referenced "Jenks" article he states that Charlton was entered in M23/3 when on oldracingcars he was in M23/2. No disrespect to "Jenks" but I'd believe oldracingcars as John McCormack bought Charlton's M23 and after he used it as a F5000 by putting a Leyland P76 based engine in it; it was much sought after by McLaren International to be converted back to it's DFV engined F1 spec as it was the "lowest" chassis number available as M23/1 was owned by Denny Hulme in New Zealand. M23/3 was the car that Jody Scheckter wrote off at the big British Grand Prix crash in 1973.

By the way "Grand Prix Ford: Ford, Cosworth and the DFV" states that the GH1 was originally titled "T371" in deference to having been derived from the T370 however as Smallman had left Lola and the Tubs were built by TC Prototypes the intent seems to have been that they would be designated as GH1 and not T371.

I notice that oldracingcars is still to update a lot of the Hill cars whether Lola or Hill.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Dora Domino (talk) 04:38, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

I'd take "Jenks" or Alan Henry over Old Racing Cars anytime as they were actually at the event and not something written years later. And Jenks in particular was notoriously pedantic about chassis Nos. We know the Hill GH1 was originally designated T371, another editor and I did hours of research on this when the notorious disruptive IP-hopper from the UK West Country started wrecking the F1 project. Eagleash (talk) 05:55, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
Well the proof in the pudding on who is correct in the M23 case would be to have a look at the ex-Charlton ex-McCormack M23 now owned by McLaren International (or even ask Ray Bell on TNF as he would know). If it's 23/2 then ORC is correct if it's 23/3 then "Jenks" is correct. Are you anywhere near Donington?

Regards
Dora Domino (talk) 07:59, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Not close enough to Donington; nor if I'm honest, interested enough. Individual chassis Nos. don't usually/regularly form part of Wiki's remit as a general encyclopedia, not an anorak's guide. It was essential (in discussions) in the case of the T371/GH1 to sort out the muddle caused by our IP friend last August and also to answer DH's query as to whether the T371 actually raced in that designation. Eagleash (talk) 12:19, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
So what does Wikipedia take as "the source"? Entrants List and Results published by the FIA/Promoter/Race Organiser or a document like the Race Programme which as I say above can have colloquialisms and inaccuracies?

With respect to the M23 I only used that as an example of where what someone (even someone thought to be beyond reproach) wrote at the time can actually be incorrect. Even Doug Nye admits when he's written something incorrect in the past such as the Profile he wrote on the Repco Brabhams which has unfortunately been quoted over and over again as gospel.
I'm not sure what you mean about what I would regard (and I know I'm only "new" to Wikipedia) as "necessary detail" to prove or disprove something not being part of Wikipedia's remit as a general encyclopedia - if detail is required to verify something then to me that detail is required. If that's against something when contributing to Wikipedia then someone better tell me now or tell me what "guideline/s" to read before I get too carried away!
My Son is over in the UK and Europe this month and just for fun and to keep him busy I'll get him to check out Donington when he is back in the UK and either get a photo of the ID board or get him to ask someone whether it's M23/2 or M23/3.
Regards
Dora Domino (talk) 13:26, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia would take FIA results over race programmes. I'm not sure how programmes even entered into this discussion, or the M23 come to that. If you find something, as a result of your research, in the M23 page, or related articles, which is inaccurate, then please go ahead and correct it, citing your WP:RS obviously! As to detail. Individual chassis Nos. are rarely included in articles, however in the case of the T371/GH1 it was necessary to delve more deeply to determine the history (as there was some confusion at the time caused by our IP editor). It would be found in the source, but not included in the text on the page. Anyone who wanted greater detail would go to a specialist website or publication. Eagleash (talk) 14:37, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
DH, you may be able to put this better than me! Eagleash (talk) 14:37, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

No that's great I understand now you've explained it very well.
Many thanks to both of you for your help it is much appreciated.
I only hope I can contribute positively and not be a pain like the one you describe.

Rio Haryanto[edit]

Hi, why was the Category:Formula One drivers removed? MbahGondrong (talk) 23:38, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi MbahGondrong. I removed Category:Formula One drivers because the article was already in the lower-level category Category:Indonesian Formula One drivers. By convention of the Formula One WikiProject, F1 driver articles are only included in the lower-level "<country> Formula One drivers" category. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 00:26, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Red Bull Racing[edit]

I wasn't actually aware that article wasn't just a one-off error. However, I'm fairly certain we had a discussion last year to use Red Bull, not Red Bull Racing, so I don't see a point in changing it back. QueenCake (talk) 17:57, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

We had a discussion in September/October last year, but by my reading it was inconclusive, i.e. some people said we should "use the common name" (i.e. "Red Bull") with others saying we should go by whatever the entry list says and the discussion eventually petered out without a firm consensus. Then in December, an IP editor changed most occurrences of "Red Bull-Renault" to "Red Bull Racing-Renault" in the 2014 and 2015 race reports, and so we had another discussion, which again resulted in no consensus. In January, I proposed changing the 2014 and 2015 race reports back, but Tvx1 objected, so I didn't. So that's why I reverted your change, to keep that article consistent with the other 2014/2015 articles, given there was no clear consensus to change them all back. (I then went on to change the few remaining instances of "Red Bull-Renault" in the 2014/2015 race reports to "Red Bull Racing-Renault", for internal consistency). DH85868993 (talk) 23:17, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

TS16[edit]

Haha... I kept laughing at Taki getting the name wrong when it was a draft... and still didn't change it when correcting some of his other howlers. Eagleash (talk) 15:06, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

Templates[edit]

Hey, thanks for moving those templates. I forgot that we do that. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 01:55, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

No probs. DH85868993 (talk) 01:56, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

FD[edit]

Thanks! Appreciate it. Still needs some work on the wording I think... Eagleash (talk) 00:05, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Wolf Williams[edit]

A re-direct existed from Wolf-Williams...without the 'racing'. A re-direct has already been requested for WWR by Taki and declined by an editor at reqs for re-direct who is aware of the situation. I.e. asking for re-directs for non-notable topics in order to create articles from them...the same editor who posted at ANI about it. No doubt if it had been granted he would have re-created the Wolf-Williams page as he did previously which was deleted as copy-vio. So if one from WWR now exists we know where he's going next... Eagleash (talk) 22:08, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Ah... the re-direct has been altered to point to a re-named section I think. So there's not a re-dir from WWR. Phew! Eagleash (talk) 22:25, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Damn! I misinterpreted your comment at Talk:Frank Williams Racing Cars and so created Wolf-Williams Racing as a redirect to Frank Williams Racing Cars#Wolf-Williams Racing. I forgot that Taki often uses redirects to create unnecessary articles. Oh well, there's a fairly strong consensus that Wolf-Williams Racing doesn't require a separate article, so if he converts the redirect to an article, we can just revert. And if he keeps doing it, we can get the redirect protected. DH85868993 (talk) 10:48, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
I've found the WWR re-dir now! Note you've added 'hidden advice' as I have on several other pages (mainly the Fittis before I temp restored them pre-merger). Great, thanks. He's tried several ways to start a page for Wolf Williams but without success. Eagleash (talk) 11:22, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Good Morning , just been reading details reference 968cs,, however on the colour side you could also specifie any colour you wanted from the factory with a special order. 2.121.207.206 (talk)

Dennis Poore[edit]

Hi, I note that you have restored results tables on the Dennis Poore page. Since the article is primarily about the man, I wonder if it would be better if, provided Poore's own motorsport achievements were listed, the tables could simply be in a cited reference? Arrivisto (talk) 15:18, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Arrivisto: Each of the 700-odd articles for drivers who participated in one or more World Championship Grands Prix has a World Championship results table and each of the British Hill Climb champions has a "British Hillclimb Championship" succession box. I don't see any compelling reason to make an exception for Poore. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 20:14, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
Hi, Thanks for responding. If that's how it is, so be it; but it seems a waste of computer storage to put a table on every driver's page. That's why we have Wikimedia Commons, to avoid needless repetition! Arrivisto (talk) 10:05, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Eddie Jordan[edit]

I think it was premature to update the links for Eddie Jordan without discussing if that unilateral move was correct in the first place. I don't see anything to indicate that Eddie Jordan the ex-Jordan boss is not the primary topic, and even if a move is required, Eddie Jordan (commentator) is the wrong disambiguator as Jordan has never been a commentator, and his media role in general is minor next to his claim to notability as a F1 team boss. We'll probably have to open a discussion on this. QueenCake (talk) 15:54, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

You're probably right. I'll do the work to re-update the links if the article gets moved back/to a different title. One benefit was that I did discover some existing links to Eddie Jordan which should have gone to [[Eddie Jordan (basketball) instead. DH85868993 (talk) 20:10, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
Silver linings and all that! At least AWB makes it quick, moving all the season pages has taken months, and I still don't think we're half way through... QueenCake (talk) 21:43, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Perhaps Eddie Jordan (Formula One) might be one way to go. (As with Sir Frank). Eagleash (talk) 16:00, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Or maybe Eddie Jordan (motorsport) given that he was a driver himself and to include his time running his F3/F3000 teams. DH85868993 (talk) 20:10, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
That would work too. Eagleash (talk) 20:20, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
I've started a discussion at Talk:Eddie Jordan (commentator)#Article title and advertised the discussion at WP:F1. DH85868993 (talk) 20:39, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Lotus 69[edit]

I looked it up in Pritchard's 1971 book, and I was wrong. Maybe we could call it a 69/49, and everything aft of the monocoque was from a 49. Will102 (talk) 12:22, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Will102. Chicane F1 and FORIX (and the results table in Pete Lovely's Wikipedia article) list the car as a "69 Special", so I've updated 1971 Formula One season to match. DH85868993 (talk) 07:13, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) FWIW the Motor Sport (magazine) archive here lists it as Lotus 69/5 (with F2 added in the grid 'table'). However it's not 'Jenks' or Alan Henry but by 'ARM' and without asking Ed Foster I don't recall who that is.

PS. Looks like 'Taki' got WDC instead of WCC in most of the early Tyrrell pages... Eagleash (talk) 16:58, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

F1 Driver page - add DOB, DOD, Age?[edit]

I have a proposal to add 3 columns to the List of Formula One drivers article: date of birth, date of death, and age. However, I didn't want to just haul off and do it without getting feedback about it. It does kind of make the page look a little "busy" with too much information, but I can see value in having the columns (especially as they are sortable columns). Anyhow, check out my sandbox if interested. I got all the birth/death info from the drivers' respective Wiki pages. 2016-05-01 UTC 20:48:00 User:BillCook (talk)

Hi Bill. I agree that it does make the table look a little "busy". I also had a look at some of the other driver lists in Category:Lists of auto racing people and none of them seem to include this information, nor do the random selection of golfer or basketball player lists I looked at. You could maybe get more opinions at WT:F1. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 12:10, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

GreenC bot[edit]

Probably better off letting GreenC bot clean up bad links added by Cyberbot, it is systematically checking every single one. The reason is it informs Cyberbot of the bad link so that it won't re-add those links elsewhere. Removing the links manually and updating the talk page doesn't inform Cyberbot, and GreenC bot can't see them since they were manually removed, so it's unable to inform Cyberbot of the problem. -- GreenC 14:02, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

Cool. Will do. DH85868993 (talk) 14:06, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

ATS[edit]

Hello, Taki has done something similar for ATS to what he did with the BRP template, (see ATS D5). That turned out to be a cache/purge problem and was fixed via the help-desk. As things stand when I click on the V-T-E symbols I get taken to a blank page to create a template for ATS (wheels). It might already have been fixed (it was partially last time) but I can't seem to find any way to correct. Can you help? Eagleash (talk) 14:12, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

On an associated note, it was at Template:ATS in Formula One but I moved it to Template:ATS (wheels). However, with hindsight I'm not 100% certain I've got that right? Seems to have fixed the links though. Eagleash (talk) 15:02, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

@Eagleash: I think your move was fine. As you say, it's fixed the links and it means the template name now matches the article title (and avoids any possibility of confusion with the Italian ATS team). DH85868993 (talk) 10:07, 1 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Still not sure that we need all these templates though. Taki/Rowde was particularly "busy" yesterday. Eagleash (talk) 11:35, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Schumacher[edit]

Hi

I edited it like that because those first sentences are a narrative.

At that point in the narrative, no judgement had been made, as it is in a later sentence and explains it.

Please put it back, or, alternatively, change it from a narrative description of events as they happened. It should be one or the other.

Thanks Chaosdruid (talk) 19:57, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

@Chaosdruid: I have reverted my change. DH85868993 (talk) 00:26, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

BRM P160[edit]

Oh... that's what Taki was trying to do...should have spotted that... it was the last of a series of his (logged out) edits...mainly removing tags.... that I saw... Thanks. Eagleash (talk) 20:55, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

No worries. Took me a few minutes to work it out too. DH85868993 (talk) 10:30, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
Just checking...the Tyrrell template should not contain the March or Matra cars? Ken didn't make the Matras even though he was basically running the team. Eagleash (talk) 00:10, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I think they should be removed - consider that we don't list the March 761 that Williams raced in 1977 in Template:Williams or the Lotuses that Brabham ran in 1963 and 1964 in Template:Brabham. DH85868993 (talk) 11:38, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. I've removed them. Eagleash (talk) 12:34, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Beuttler at 1972 French GP[edit]

Regarding your reversal of my edit to the 1972 French Grand Prix, it shouldn't matter what those other sources say. F1 regs have long stated that a driver has to complete 90% of the race distance to be classified. Even with rounding, that means in a 38 lap race, the driver can be at most four laps down, and Mike Beuttler was five laps down. Look at the results of the 1971 Dutch Grand Prix. Henri Pescarolo was eight laps down in a 70 lap race (88.6% of race distance completed), and was listed as not classified. Beuttler only completed 86.8% of the race distance. So unless you are claiming that the regs varied from race to race, Beuttler should be listed as not classified.Will102 (talk) 16:46, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi Will102. Wikipedia:Verifiability says we need to report what the sources say. However, upon further investigation, I've found other sources listing him as "Retired", so I've started a discussion at Talk:1972 French Grand Prix#Beuttler. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 01:36, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Stefan Grand Prix[edit]

While you're here could you check the sourcing for the putative 2015 entry? I read it as Autosport reporting that some believe that they were a potential entrant, but some believe a lot of things. Doesn't mean it happened. Britmax (talk) 07:42, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Yeah - "believed to be" is not really confirmation. A quick Google for "Stefan GP 2015" turned up a couple of other "believes", including:
  • Grand Prix 247: "Although it is believed the Serbian has withdrawn his application to put together a brand new team for 2015..."
but also a few more definite statements, e.g.:
  • F1 Pulse: "Along with NASCAR team owner Gene Haas and former F1 team boss Colin Kolles, Stefanovic had registered with the FIA", and
  • This Is F1: "Zoran Stefanovich, chief of the failed Stefan GP outfit, has already confirmed he has withdrawn his application after failing to agree a 2015 engine deal."
Hope this helps. DH85868993 (talk) 09:28, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
@Britmax: I've added the F1 Pulse and This Is F1 refs to the article and tweaked the text accordingly. DH85868993 (talk) 06:51, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for that. I had to go to work. Britmax (talk) 08:17, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

F1 2017 Season Page[edit]

Howdy! I had requested semi-protection for this page, but "pending change protection 1" is what was granted instead. The previous semi-protection was lifted last night and the page was already vandalized this morning by an unregistered IP. Real tlhingan (talk) 19:02, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
