About rubbergoat

Hi there! I’m a mad keen F1 fan who has been addicted to the sport for 20 years. I watch every race and follow the sport in every way I can. I have a keen interest in numbers and I would like to analyse the races from a statistical point of view to see if the data shows something we can't see on TV. As always, I’d love to hear what you think and especially if we can discuss my analyses that would be great – but please no nasty stuff!

Ashes to Ashes

So Iceland is in the news again. The little country the size of a small town yet again holds an influential position over Europe – albeit for more ‘natural’ reasons this time…

A volcano in Iceland erupted, spewing ash into the atmosphere and the whole of Northern Europe’s airspace has been closed down because of this. Yet when I look outside my window, the skies seem pretty clear to me. I’m not an expert or anything on the subject but I have had firsthand experience with volcanoes erupting and getting my flight disrupted… Continue reading

Spot The Stiff

I don’t know about you, but I love watching war movies and disaster movies.

One of my favourite things I like to do while watching these is to play a great game called ‘Spot The Stiff’. It’s a game invented by the brilliantly funny comedy duo of Punt and Dennis – and I think it came from their TV show they had a while ago. Continue reading
