    I remember when Montagny skipped a race because of health issues…

    I’d rather see an arcade-style Supertuxkart-based game (FE is after all, with fanboost, more gimmicky than F1).

    @kingshark If those circuits don’t suit FE cars it’s not because of the length since the cars can still mke a lap (well, two) on them.

    Whether a circuit that long would be detrimental to the racing (which it quite possibly would) though may be a good reason not to use them, apart from possible safety concerns of course.

    But I’d still like to see races on those circuits for a number of laps that can be counted with a finger or two (I think DTM or the WTCC did a 3-lap race on the Nordschleife).

    @bradley13 There would still be a reason not to build the engines yourself though: the money would need to come from a racing team or more.

    But yeah, I guess it’d be awfully complicated…….

    @jamiefranklinf1 @robocat I think it’ll be a good idea to seperate the race team from the engine team, even if each are maintained by the same person. For example, there’s Downton Racing (whatever the official title is) that handles the driver, aero, etc.

    And then there’s a different Downton engine manufacturer, also played by @bradley13 , with a different money account and development points that can perhaps be bought by money. The engine teams don’t really compete against each other – they just make an engine and maybe sell at a price such that it’s beneficial for them and/or the racing team owned by their owner.

    @robocat won’t give money to the engine teams – they get all their money from the racing teams (who in turn get money from @robocat) who are probably customers of their engines. The amount of money an engine team get from a customer depends on the deal struck between them.

    (An arrangement like that leaves a few questions though, such as the areas of engine development (I suggest power and weight))

    A rough idea but it might end in something that works.

    Bernie thinks it should be somewhere in the middle East on a new Tilkedrome with nothing doubled but points :)

    1. A Denny’s. Or somewhere that sells bread+hagelslag or poffertjes.

    2. Monza, excluding the chicanes, including the oval

    3. Rush, Genesis (Nursery-Cryme-to-Lamb lineup), and Yes (with Jon Anderson) on a makeshift stage on the run-off of the 1st chicane.

    4. Braga Permai in Bandung, Indonesia.

    5. Braga Permai in Bandung, Indonesia (they make good breakfast and dinner there).

    To explain my original banter-only comment Mercedes’ task is to get the best result possible – whether it’s entertaining is the FIA’s and FOM’s problem (neither are doing a good job solving it). It’s not team Brackley’s job to make the race entertaining.

    I and many more of us who love f1 actually pay good money to watch the races

    The money was paid for an F1 race, not for a good race (technically anyway), and again it’s not team Brackley’s problem. It’s FOM’s and FIA’s

    other teams trying so hard and then Mercedes doing their little tricks just makes the f1 races more boring than ever.

    1. What has the other teams’ attempt to catch up got to do with what you’re accusing team Brackley of?
    2.So you think the main reason for team Brackley to do their “little tricks” is to make the races more boring? Seriously? After what happened here last year? Seriously?
    3.So you think F1 is, at the moment, more boring than ever? Than EVER? EVER???

    At the end of the day F1 is #1 a competition, #2 an entertainment spectacle. If you disagree with my ordering in the previous sentence, than it’ll probably nicely back up my original banter-only comment.

    Seeing @george1066 makes me think that Bernie’s gimmicks are more brilliant than we think and that we sane F1 fanatics are just out of touch from reality, busy with our own bubble in which every F1 fan were smart people who wouldn’t say something like the opening post.

    @xtwl VES said though that he wasn’t making an overtake.

    So…..that puts Mario Andretti, Jochen Rindt, and F. Cevert on the list?

    In that case it’d be a racing incident and the only mistake (for which VES should apologise) VES would have made is claiming GRO brake tested him.

    @matthijs Wonder why the term was never quite loaned to Indonesian……I guess motor racing never quite picked up here until 1942.

    Wonder why the chaps at Sky, etc haven’t discussed that possibility yet…….might they know something we don’t, or is discussing the accordion effect simply a bit unprofitable? (or have they discussed it and I’ve simply missed it?)

    @vmaxmuffin

    I think it’s still his fault, because a more experienced driver would have recognised Grosjean was struggling and would be braking earlier than himself.

    GRO said he broke later…so even if he’s struggling I doubt it explains VES hitting GRO.

    But if they were closer (watched a VES onboard some time ago but forgot if they were)….I guess that might be the cause.

    Or have I missed something?
