I don’t understand what Ferrari is on, if I’m honest. I have a list of points to show why
1. Felipe deserved to win, he got the good start, and had the pace
2. Alonso will not win the championship this year, I will bet my house on it, so it’s not beneficial to the championship
3. What is meant to stop alonso just trying to pass felipe, it provides better racing, and if he was truly faster, he should have been able to do it
What really infuriates me, is the way everyone at ferrari were lying through their teeth, and avoiding the questions. In the press conference, they asked fernando whether he had said over the radio ‘let me pass’ He said shit all about the radio, and about what he said, and said some shit about it being a good result for the team. Worst of all, he tried to pass it off as a genuine pass. Smedley, who I thought would at least say his piece, said some shit about apologising because he didnt let felipe go fast enough. Its all absolute rubbish, this is why I hate ferrari, and why I’m becoming less and less faithful to f1. Ive probably missed about 5 gps all of which because Ive been on holiday, since I started watching at the end of 2000, and it feels more and more like its a waste of my time, a burden that I have to watch it.
Anyway, I’m going to go onto the other problems. I saw, I think it was around lap 40, that the gap to 7th place that the gap was around 70 seconds! Something needs to be done to bring that gap down. Sadly, the teams will never agree to use a standard chassis or engine, and I guess its a bad idea overall, because it wouldn’t be a team thing anymore. Then I would suggest using increased, more strict regulations, doing as much as you can to bring them all together.
Also, the fact that apart from the start, that being one of the most appalling races I’ve seen, shows that something needs to be done in terms of making overtaking possible. The idea that fia are coming up with, with the spoiling of the rear wing that the car infront cant react to (I’m not going to go into details, this is long enough anyway) makes it good for the drivers, but its not good action, its one car driving past the other. There needs to be something to allow the cars to properly jostle easier, to make better racing, because as intriguing as watching a strategic race is, its hard to keep ful attention because theres nothing eye catching.
Anyway, I’ve said my bit, feel free to disagree if you please.
