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.28th July 2014, 23:42 at 11:42 pm #268603
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.15th July 2014, 2:45 at 2:45 am #266622
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”.29th June 2014, 9:18 at 9:18 am #264830
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.21st June 2014, 4:03 at 4:03 am #263749
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..26th May 2014, 22:58 at 10:58 pm #261814
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.8th May 2014, 5:53 at 5:53 am #259115
@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.7th May 2014, 1:27 at 1:27 am #259048
@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.6th May 2014, 19:01 at 7:01 pm #259011
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.1st May 2014, 19:12 at 7:12 pm #258614
Better than Martin Whitmarsh who has also been rumored for the HAAS job.15th April 2014, 8:00 at 8:00 am #256964
I wrote off McLaren for 2013 (in late 2012) when they lost Hamilton. I’ve written off Ferrari every year since Alonso’s hiring.17th March 2014, 15:37 at 3:37 pm #251309
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. ;)8th February 2014, 7:12 at 7:12 am #248530
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.7th February 2014, 17:36 at 5:36 pm #248525
The Americans themselves are not without sin when it comes to this subject, several states still deny homosexuals the right to marry. In some southern states they are beaten up.
No, they’re not. I’m not sure what propaganda machine you’ve heard that from, but that simply doesn’t happen. I live in the “Redneckest” state of them all (Alabama), no more than 10 miles from where Top Gear was (not really) attacked. I can not recall a homosexual getting beat up for the heck of it in the last 7 years, which is as long as I’ve lived in this state…6th February 2014, 7:31 at 7:31 am #248512
