    Almost every single post I have seen that you have made has pointed out how much it costs (posts referring to sky coverage). It’s not that expensive. If I can manage a £44p/m sky bill on a job that pays £12k a year, I’m pretty sure most other people can as well.

    They should either take it or leave it and they should quit moaning litle little girls.

    I say don’t change it. Motorsport needs danger. Without danger drivers will think they’re invincible.

    I’ve noticed how unfairly he gets treated on the Renault facebook page. By these apparent Renault fans…. Almost as if they think he stole Kubicas seat or something..

    I’d say It’s best to compare both against each other.

    “Just like they do anyway, with their helmets and current car numbers. Then they’d do it again next year.”

    You see… they do it for one year, get new numbers and you’re back to square 1, not knowing who is what number.

    I have no idea what number Sutil is, or Petrov, or Alguersuari. No idea! Because they change every year & there’s no point remembering them.

    You’d remember them if they kept the same one.

    I like what Renault have always done since Schumacher in 1994. Their number 1 driver has always had a red/orange nose cone

    I guess problems could arise on the team side. Since F1 has used the current system for so long. attracting potential sponsors has a lot to do with how far you are up the grid. Usually they will notice the number on the car. I guess some sponsors may ignore someone with #22 on their car?

    I’d guess the best way of allocating numbers for existing drivers would be to start in championship order? Ask each driver starting from champion to the bottom driver?

    The point about Nigels 5 is a good one. Imagine if Prodrive had managed to get in with Aston Martin as a brand… and their first driver had chosen 007!

    I think teams would say no though. Drivers have to get the permission of their team to change their helmets, let alone change numbers…

    I have never been concerned with who gets top spot on the charts. I have the song already so I see no need for me to personally get it.

    Sponsors pay for what they get. AT&T don’t pay to have their logo on the sidepod, they pay to have their name in the title.

    They all pay for a spot on the car. Remember when Renault launched in 2010? They had lots of blank spaces, they could have covered those over with their existing sponsors but they didn’t because that would scare sponsors away.

    They’d think “Someone already has that spot, there’s no point investing”

    If you keep the space open, sponsors will come and look… we could have our logo there.

    Seeing the cars in High Definition will be the thing I look forward to the most. For years I had a rubbish CRT TV, you know the ones you can see the pixels on? Well in December I bought a HD TV and as soon as the BBC announced they would show F1 in HD, I upgraded within a couple of weeks for that very reason. F1 in HD!

    Lovely Jubbely with a cherry on top!

    Well that post started off quite interesting and then I got bored by the end of it!
