I have always believed that simple is better. So I would go for simple rules (1 rubber compound per race for example, less complicated aerodynamic devices, No DRS etc).
Racing should be racing: you have 22 cars on a starting grid, they race (if they feel that they should change tyres during the race, they can, if not so be it,) and whoever crosses the line first wins.
These complicated rules we have now, can sometimes make racing interesting but they also make it artificial for the knowledgeable fan and complicated for the would-be fans.19th November 2013, 14:17 at 2:17 pm #245503
I agree, racing accidents can provide exciting entertainment (provided that nobody is injured, not talking about horrific accidents here).
Apart from accidents however nowadays (with the current engine freeze) there are even less breakdowns. I remember the early 90′s when some races would be hit with a number of accidents and breakdowns and provide a golden opportunity for the smaller teams to score points.
I hope that next year, the trend will change.19th November 2013, 11:48 at 11:48 am #245425
Its about time Ron gets back the lead of the team…14th November 2013, 8:06 at 8:06 am #244984
As much as I would like to see a kid repeat Hamilton’s feat at McLaren, I would prefer that he gets some experience in another team, the reason is that next season might be not an easy one for Mclaren and he might risk getting ‘burned’ just like Perez.
Hamilton in 2007 found a strong team with a race-winning car (unlike today’s Mclaren)
I believe it would be better for Magnussen to get some experience at Force India for 1 season (without too much pressure) and Di Resta (or Hulk) gets the second McLaren seat.
Magnussen would come in 201512th November 2013, 7:55 at 7:55 am #244953
Ideally (and I am a McLaren fan) they should keep the current lineup for next year and ‘park’ Magnussen in some decent team (like Sauber or Force India) then bring him back home in 201511th November 2013, 11:49 at 11:49 am #244872
that would be another interesting topic to start… actually Mansell also drove for the top 4 – Ferrari, Mclaren, Williams and Lotus
would be interesting to see how many more did that1st November 2013, 11:26 at 11:26 am #243797
I doubt it (and hope not). Willams never really recovered from the departure of Newey and Renault (back in the late 90s) and the main reason I believe is that Williams remained a private team not much different than Jordan, Sauber or Minardi (tho with a bigger budget). Mclaren is today a more solid company and can absorb better a difficult season or two (and the consequent loss of prize-money). They are still able to attract major sponsors. However they need to react fast and change whatever needs to be changed and bounce back by 2015 the latest.5th February 2013, 22:47 at 10:47 pm #224967
