Luca di Montezemolo says Schumacher's condition is "not good". Make of that what you will.

Could go in Presenters or Deadio Times but I'm putting here:

Barney Hall, whose soothing voice delivered stock-car racing broadcasts over radio airwaves for 54 years, died Tuesday from complications after a recent medical operation. He was 83.

Indianapolis 500 veteran Bob Harkey and Grand Prix driver for one race in 1957, Mike MacDowel have both died in the last week. Harkey was 85, MacDowel 83.

Maria Teresa De Filippis died last night. Well done if you picked her for the DDP.

Tony Adamowicz has posted on Facebook for the first time since August so although he still has grade 4 brain cancer, he has clearly made some recovery.

Yes, on New Years Eve, that is, after the Deathrace deadline, an article about him made use of the word 'recovery':

Instead of days, he might well have weeks or months left. Probably not years though.

 

 

 

Adamowicz is DI's (i.e. the current Deathrace leader's) joker, could be significant, eh?

 

I like to think that for the Deathrace you basically only need 5-6 "locks". If they die within the first month, you've won. The other 14-15 picks can be gambles. So if one of your gambles turns out to be a dud, it's no biggie. But then I would have thought that Adamowicz would be a lock (didn't make him my joker by coincidnece), and that might be significant, because otherwise Death Impends would be the big favourite to win at this point, needing only Adamowicz and a second hit to win. Without him, DI, DDT and SC all still need three hits to win, with all the "walking corpses" already dead. And if Adamowicz is a dud, it reduces the potential of the teams who picked him by a 20th. So Sir Creep and me are similarly slighty disadvantaged. Hmm... I guess that makes DDT the statistical favorite at this point.

 

 

Yeah, woops. Thought the early Dec update on him meant Adamowicz was fading away and would've only made 2016 by a nose if he made it. Though tbh I still think Bruce Langhorne and Monty Brinson (both of whom I'm the only one to pick in the Deathrace) are likely gone by the month's end, so I'd need another on top of that but my hopes aren't dashed quite yet.

 

Honestly, I could not imagine that there was any different way that statement could have been interpreted than the way you and I did.

I assumed he would die in February.  I remain unanimous in that.

Aye, good reasoning.

 

With the added complication that some of the conspicious low-hangers, notably Ms Feek, will simply shower the points all over the place as and when, enabling the whole field to dream of a lucky break or two putting them up top./
