I’m strongly against success ballasts, anywhere.
Or reverse grids, of course. Though somehow, as another user posted on one of the articles, Flavio’s return to F1 was nonetheless an instant success.28th July 2014, 15:29 at 3:29 pm #26857228th July 2014, 15:25 at 3:25 pm #26857028th July 2014, 9:40 at 9:40 am #267945
@robocat Sorry for being off-topic (being an owner of no team and all that) but what about a double-points 610km race as next season’s finale at the Nordschleife or old Spa or Pescara or Reims or Brooklands or the old Hockenheim or…..you get the idea.27th July 2014, 5:35 at 5:35 am #268303
It still doesn’t work for me yet, unfortunately.27th July 2014, 4:39 at 4:39 am #268299
Unfortunately now @keithcollantine I can’t seem to post on http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/groups/f1-games/forum/topic/f1f-virtual-grand-prix-championship/page/366/
The problem is exactly the same as @fer-no65‘s problem above (albeit in a different thread, of course!).

At this rate I think the more insane the policies get, the better it could be as F1 would collapse onto itself sooner.
Then again, it could end up not with a collapse followed by a successor but with a split – and as has been shown in the U. S. that’s not a good thing.
Oh, and there’s always Cricfree.
Having said that I wonder what will happen when Bernie (and the CVC as well) goes. I’m not expecting the best, though.25th July 2014, 6:27 at 6:27 am #268016
I think there’s a subtle difference between the morals of holding races in places like the US and in places like Russia. The US government has had very little involvement in the US Grand Prix. The Russian Grand Prix is, like Bahrain, a political race, heavily endorsed by the national government
@jackysteeg Oh, OK, I get it now :)
Guess should’ve read a bit more of the articles on the GP.24th July 2014, 15:32 at 3:32 pm #267969
On the other hand there’s the Israel v. Palestine thing – and as far as I know there is (or at least was?) some U. S. Involvement, which assuming there indeed is might very well be a reason to cancel the race at COTA.
And the NSA, and stupid patents?11th July 2014, 13:42 at 1:42 pm #266394
@juan-pablo-heidfeld-1 Yes but I think it’s fairer than, say, double points or DRS, or (Vote to enable, for ceratin drivers,) push to pass.11th July 2014, 9:49 at 9:49 am #26636311th July 2014, 9:32 at 9:32 am #266360
I think Chase for the Cup makes sense, unless you think there shouldn’t be a knockout stage in the World Cup but there should be a full championship instead….Still, I think stock cars going in circles look boring.
Anyway, some possible gimmicks:
-Top-11 races in terms of points earned rule
-Do concerts after races count? (though if the setlist lists ’70s sidelong suites I probably wouldn’t mind)
-Ability for >1 bike to be classified as 1 in a (rainy Moto GP) race. I’d rather have them change tyres (OK this might not be a gimmick but I still disagree with it)
-Mid-season rule changes, especially if aimed at the (relative) domination of a particular contestant’s vehicle.
-Pit-stop windows (just my opinion)
-The day Bernie makes a call to Nakamichi about the sound of F1 cars.6th July 2014, 11:17 at 11:17 am #265713
@pezlo2013 Regarding the slow-mo, we’ll get plenty of that starting 12 PM UTC today, and then go to F1F live, probably to complain about it :p6th July 2014, 10:47 at 10:47 am #265712
Was listening to Genesis’ Foxtrot on another tab then noticed the video was already up so I had to take a look.
Congrats for the top 4 places, Franklin and Liverpool! Now Liverpool, what about winning the Premier League?
