What a race, thoguh it might give Bernie an inspiration for havign another attempt at that sprinkler thing.
@kanil I watched the 2011 Canadian GP until maybe 3.30 AM having got to wake up for school at 5. Races in the Americas start around midnight over here.
Admittedly I had had a bit of sleep before the race, but….
Get rid of double points (or double the race distance in Abu dhabi – it’d be even more of a lottery but at least it’d be fair), paint tarmac run-offs with some kind of colour (preferable green), live streaming licensed under a copyleft license (but with CGI) or a paid CGI-less feed (and drive TV channels to the latter one way or another).
Oh, and do the post-race interviews.
And a race in France.
And monsoon tyres.
Watching a rerun of the 2008 Monaco and Canadian GPs after looking at an (months-old) edition of F1 Racing which had a cover about the 4 pre-Fuji 2007 title contenders, saw Kimi, and decided “This guy looks decent, I should support him”.
Yes, I’m young enough for something like that to actually happen as recent as 2008. And looking back that was a pretty embarassing way to get into watching F1.
Instead of FanBoost why don’t they have the driver who gets the most vote get onto a different (rather small) spot on the podium (unless he gets any of the proper 3 places), and get a throphy for most votes and a bottle of champagne (in the case of the vote winner being in the top 3 (s)he gets 2 throphies and 2 bottles).
No on-track gimmicks, no on-track farce, no championship skewing, but still with voting, and results of it to be seen by the fans, and thus “interaction”.
Excuse another mad prediction from me: GRO to Woking.
@klon Yes, that’s true on the one hand. On the other hand, that layout is still ridiculous (as I said, it’s like a water tank!)….:)
They called it a ring? Sorry, it’s more like a city silhouette or an old lady or a chair or a water tank or……not a ring, basically (apart from the fact that it keeps repeating itself, of course) :)
@pezlo2013 Forgive me for being a bit silly but what has being Illuminatis got to do with hitting each other?
@robocat did Hoskins set FLAP?
If he did that’ll mean a grand…never mind, he was beaten to pole.
Testing: Mercedes has got blQQdy good engines, Renault rubbish engines.
No. More money is put into R&D than the car, and I think Maldonado brings enough to have a decent effect on R&D, which I’m pretty sure his crashes go nowhere in negating.
I’m not an expert.
