News Post: F1 2020

Gabe: Since Tycho is still out of town, I’ll be handling the Friday afternoon stream solo. I’ll be checking out the new “My Team” mode in F1 2020 from 2-4pt over on Twitch.

Tycho: I fell off of TikTok even before the reports everyone has been talking about, the one which claimed to reveal a host of sins baked into the software at a philosophical level.  I’ve also read other smart people talking about how it’s not as bad as it sounds.  I’d say that’s more or less typical of engineers, who are always trying to climb atop...
