Why are the 'recent tips' on 'PressF1 & Tips' dated in the future? Are computers now so fast we have the answer before the question?

Two reasons:

1. They did it deliberately to test whether anyone actually goes in there and reads them (I didn't even know they existed LOL). People (like you) who complain prove that yes, people do read them. Cheap, cost effective survey. ;-)

2. They aren't actually *Recent* tips because the dating is Americanised and is actually 5 January 2002.

Either way, the ship is sinking!

Focus is on the new version, that should be here within a week or two. They don't want to waste effort on the old boring F1 if they can help it.

Kind of feel sorry for it, but this is evolution in action.

Fasten your seat belts, secure your rice pudding, shut your eyes, and think a happy thought.
