From the first part of the season, here’s what you had to say about Max Mosley, Ralf Schumacher, F1 safety and more.
And if you’ve got more to add, the debates are still open…
James B said:
Very simply F1 races needs to get in the 20s.
But Neeraj reckoned:
Having more races is always nice for us and that?óÔé¼Ôäós what most of us will always say. But increasing the number of races is not too viable an option. What F1 need is more in-depth coverage of the sport and the people associated with it.
Alexander Wurz and David Coulthard’s crash at Melbourne put the focus on safety once more. Chris summed up the mood of most respondents by saying:
If you cover the cockpits, it?óÔé¼Ôäós not really F1, is it?
The FIA president always courts controversy. Here’s a small taste of what Number 38 had to say:
For a man who has spent so much of his life in and around F1. He seems to have a very poor concept of the ‘sport’, and certainly poor management skills… He has reduced F1 to little more than a spec class like GP2 or A1 Grand Prix. And now he?óÔé¼Ôäós concerned about the environment.
F1Fanatic readers proved to be a diverse bunch with some tuning in for the first time in the past few years, others have tales to tell from the ’50s!
Massimo Valz Gris came out with one of my favourite comments this year:
He?óÔé¼Ôäós already retired. he just doesn?óÔé¼Ôäót know yet.
Flavio Briatore thinks F1 should be more like GP2 but many of you, like Robert McKay, disagreed:
I think Flavio is talking nonsense with this one, frankly. It works in GP2 mainly because (a) the cars are all equal, so it?óÔé¼Ôäós all about the drivers, and not who?óÔé¼Ôäós in the fastest package, and (b) the aerodynamics allows passing fairly easily, so starting 8th does not mean you cannot win.
Which one of 2006′s retirees would you bring back? Abhinav was one of many to cast his vote for Juan Pablo Montoya:
I would like to see JPM return as well mainly for the aggression and his moves in places one would usually think that overtaking is not possible.Oh and who can forget the team-mate wars.
Two classic races on the same day. Many said they were watching both but Sam wasn’t impressed by oval racing:
Indy 500 is about as difficult as driving a bumpercar at the county fair. No talent, no skill, it?óÔé¼Ôäós all about driving around in a big circle.
