    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.

    @force-maikel

    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…

    @bosley – I believe the $50 billion is based on USD, not rubles.

    If they want the most exciting races possible, just give the championship to whoever has the most wins at the end of the year.

    Sure, there will probably only be 10 cars on the track at the end of the race (because finishing 13th instead of 43rd wouldn’t mean anything). But those 10 cars would provide some serious entertainment.

    It’s likely a bit more of a fluorescent red. I’m betting its almost identical a color to McLaren’s Rocket Red that they used for their Vodafone livery. Under similar lighting, the old McLaren had the same orange hue.

    Eitherway, there seems to be a lot more white on the car. Certainly the upper sections of the sidepods are all white. Should be interesting!
