    Another from Selling England. This one’s anything BUT funny though:

    The Cinema Show Suzuka Race

    Up on a Sunday our Jules
    Eats his morning meal.
    He dabs his skin with speedy smells
    Concealing to appeal.
    I will make my race,
    He said, then turned to go.
    Can he be late for his Suzuka race?

    Charlie sets the start triggger on,
    And scurries up the stair.
    With head held high and floral tie,
    A weekend millionaire.
    I will make my race
    In Suzuka, he cries.
    Can he fail armed with his driving supreme-ness?

    Take a little trip back to Father in Heaven,
    Listen to the old one speak of all he has lived through.
    I have crossed between the poles, for me there’s no mystery.
    Once a man, like the car I raged,
    Once a tractor, like the track I gave.
    But there is in fact more car than track.

    @bradley13 @robocat Wait, you’re planning to include commentary? (I thought by serving the entire race uncut the commentary would be dropped)

    I suggest a recap of the race every few time-points (i.e. 30, 60, and 75 minutes) talking about what (if anything) happened in the race since the previous recap.

    @pt He bribed a few teams into “just going on with it” (think concorde agreement) if memory serves me :)

    @pt Well, that’s how things would be theoratically and maybe legally, but de facto the monarch would want to try to avoid coup d’etats (which surely can result from just getting on with things without people agreeing with him on it)! :)

    @pt

    I just SUGGESTED a plan. It HAS TO WORKED OUT AND FINE TUNED

    Which I doubt is really possible – you know, like a square can’t be fine-tuned to make a better wheel than a circle.

    Are u picking at me just because i suggested an idea which you or the majority of fans don’t support.

    Are arguments against an idea we disagree with a crime? Do we think that your opinions are crime? (answer: NO to both questons)

    You clearly don’t know me well enough to be speaking like this. I just SUGGESTED a plan

    An impression was left on me that you were absolutely pushing for the plan (rather than just suggesting it), with arguments I felt were flawed.

    If any of u have better ideas please put them forward

    Leaving the bloody thing alone (or OK, maybe adding a bit of ground effect) will be perfectly fine for me, thanks :)

    P.S. what’s wrong with us disagreeing with you? It seems as if you thought that the only polite response we could possibly give towards the idea is positve or neutral.

    Well, you posted an opinion, along with some arguments for it. We disagree with the opinion and felt the arguments you stated in support of it were flawed, pointed out what we felt the flaws were, and we suddenly have to be treated as if we’re wrongly accusing you of murder? As if we don’t have the right to disagree with you? As if you were the monarch of a worldwide absolute monarchy?

    The point is, we’re not arguing with you because we think you’re doing a crime by suggesting that (if we did we’d have called the police), but simply because we disagree with you. Arguing against opinions one disagrees with is not a crime. Far from it. Presidential cadidates do it all the time :P

    @pt Good effort (not a polite way to start a comment, but I wasn’t the first in this thread to start a post this way), but

    The definition clearly says “to see which is the fastest”. It’s at the race where you must see who is the fastest. It doesn’t say that you already know who is the fastest and who will win it.

    But you don’t know! You’re only 80% sure (I took a number straight from the Pareto principe there – probably when I shouldn’t have, but I needed a number) that team Brackley was going to win. That they haven’t always won the races, even if it rarely happens, makes that point of yours moot.

    Hell, even the 1988 Italian GP would be enough to silence anybody saying we knew which chassis would win every single race that season.

    A true race is where qualifying at the front is only an advantage but not a determinant of who will win the race

    Just because pole sitters often win races doesn’t mean that it’s more than merely an advantage! (by the way you’re starting to sound like one of those Genesis fans that don’t treat their ’80s output with dignity. I only listen to ’70s Genesis, but talking about them selling out after Hackett’s exit without proof beyond reasonable doubt that they actually “sold out” is unfair)

    If you read the Autosport text commentary for Hungarian GP, they said before the race that Mercedes would lock the top two steps of the podium. In usual scenarios that would have happened. So technically you already know who would win before the race begins which means it really isn’t a race.

    TECHNICALLY, you don’t know the race winner yet. Hence a race. Hence a Heppenheim-born winner last time out. Hence (among other things) all the arguments against your arguments for a new system (which I’m not saying is bad, but please understand those who say it is). (Do you even know what technically means?

    Formula 1 these days the race is held to already determined (in people’s minds) results, at least in terms of who is first or second. That isn’t true racing, in the purest sense of the term.

    So you use what are in people’s minds (rather than the race itself) to determine whether a race is a “true” race? I don’t!

    You seem to think that it’s a terrible sin for the world to let the pole sitters win or for cars to finish in the order they started in a race. It’s not. (And based on your take on the dictionary’s definition of a race, I’d expect you to only think of rallying as “true” racing, no?)

    Besides, even if the winners are already decided, there’s still the rest of the field. Or are you simply going to look at it Need-for-Speed style and say any position other than 1st matters so little that they actually don’t?
