    Would be good for both, IMHO. But I don’t see it happening.

    @junior-pilot – I posted about Monisha being an incompetent team principal when they hired Sutil, and I was thoroughly grilled for it, so watch out! :)

    I think this clearly shows that public perception is the MOST important thing to Mercedes/Stuttgart, without question.

    I think they’ll put Nico on internal probabtion, and if he does something stupid/cheaty again, they ban him from a race or practice sessions depending on severity. I think deep down the heads at Mercedes know that a lot of the questionable incidents involving ROS were down to him attempting to gain an unfair advantage. They’ll never admit it though, but the reaction from Lauda, Toto and gang seem to give me the impression that this incident wasn’t the first time.

    The Renault may not be down much power anymore, but it certainly had reliability issues at the beginning. I think Red Bull are unfairly riding the “Renault Sucks” bus to deflect blame from their car which hasn’t lived up to the last 4 years of dominance.

    I think that we could even include the tracks as gimmicky. I’m not going to list them all, but just as an example in NASCAR, one could easily argue that Short Tracks and Super Speedways are both gimmicky. That said though, I hate 1.5mi ovals, so…

    I think most Tilke tracks are gimmicky as well. They are just straights with hard 90° turns, aimed at improving passing and “the show”.

    Not sure what Rahal was doing on the last restart. Just seemed to mistime it, really badly. I was hoping for a last-lap dash, wanted to see what Montoya had for him. Glad for the rookie though.

    With F1 being owned by CVC and run by Ecclestone, there’s NO WAY they would willingly give up more money to a peasant team such as Marussia, Sauber or Caterham. Hell… Last place currently doesn’t even get ANY prize money..

    I think Massa and Kobayashi are the only two drivers out of place. Massa is too low, and Kobayashi is probably too high. Switch them and I’d be a lot happier with the list.

    @Mathers – USCC did a 2hr sprint race not long ago at Laguna Seca with the DP’s, P2 and some GT cars. It was a VERY good race.

    @calum – ESPN did that exact thing a few years ago with the ALMS coverage here in the US. As an avid race fan, it annoyed me to no end, and I hated it. By the time it aired, you’d already know who won and how the race went.

    Wish we had a legit source to watch WEC here in the States. I do think it has the opportunity to take over. They might not be as fast, but they’re already more technologically advanced, better racing, etc.

    Better than Martin Whitmarsh who has also been rumored for the HAAS job.

    I wrote off McLaren for 2013 (in late 2012) when they lost Hamilton. I’ve written off Ferrari every year since Alonso’s hiring.

    Williams has the best facilities, one of the largest groups of employees and now has a lot of spare cash… I think they could do some good things. ;)

    @prisoner-monkeys

    It never ceases to amaze me that people will defend a minority and think nothing of trampling on the majority, then rationalise it by claiming that if they support the majority, then the minority will get trampled.

    Holy crap… Someone gets it. You’re my hero for the day PM.
