I’m a French F1 fan for almost 20 years and in the country the sport’s visibility has just gone from bad to worse in the last few years.
From no driver on the grid to no home race to pay tv, audience will never be what it was.
The older generation won’t by a suscription to watch live a race. They’ll just get the results later, bu luck on the…[Read more]
I have a soft spot for a few of the Prost cars with their royal blue paint scheme along with with the all black Arrows A19. The McLaren MP4-16 is also another one of my favourites as I have a scaled replica of the car in my possession.
The aesthetics of the current cars aerodynamics still don’t please me and it’s not just the phallus noses I’m…[Read more]
Has to be the McLaren MP4-20. Something about the black livery, the horns on the engine cover and the fact that it was so incredibly fast makes it almost evil-looking. It’s what a Formula 1 car should look like to me.
Besides that, I always liked the Brawn.
I’d like to change my design. Scratch the one above.
A circuit measuring exactly 7km. Runs anti-clockwise, the pit lane is on the right. A lot wider than the previous design.
My favourites, though not based on looks, in no particular order:
Tyrrell P34 – 6 wheels!
Honda RA109 – The least sponsorship needed for a race win (and 1-2, and WDC, and WCC) since…..the early ’70s?
Red Bull RB6 – Good looking, and the fact that it broke so much kept the championship alive (instead of going the way of Vettel like last…[Read more]
I have quite a modern top 5.
5. Williams FW27 (2005) – The McLaren MP4-20 is a popular choice but this was 05′s nicest for me.
4. Williams FW15C (1993) – The most technological-sophisticated F1 car of all time? Nice shape and the Canon-Camel liveries were always stunning.
3. McLaren MP4-25 (2010) – Thanks largely to the F-duct, 2010 had the…[Read more]
Red Bull: Ricciardo/Hulkenberg
Force India: Perez/Vandoorne
Toro Rosso: Kvyat/Vergne
Sauber: Wolff/Van der garde
Caterham: Don’t care too much really lol
I thought I was going to be alone on this one, but my favourite as to be the Brawn GP.
Others I’d include would be 05/06 Renault and 2010 Red Bull. I think overall I prefer the larger wings and cleaner design of the new breed compared to pre-2009, which isn’t the most popular opinion.
Who would I like to see? Well if you’re ignoring all current contracts then this could get interesting.
This won’t happen but this is what I would like to happen, respecting the fact that some drivers are already confirmed:
Mercedes: L. Hamilton/N. Rosberg
Red Bull: D. Ricciardo/R. Grosjean
Williams: F. Massa/K. Raikkonen
Ferrari: F. Alonso/J.…[Read more]
My top five:
5) Lotus 25 – Do I need to say much about this? Superb piece of machinery.
4) Sauber C12 – Plain. Simple. Beautiful.
3) Brawn 001 – Similar to above. Like the odd colour scheme. Makes that era of car look nice.
2) McLaren MP4/13 – The car that I recognise the most from my childhood, my hero Mika Hakkinen took it to the World…[Read more]
Can’t see it happening, but I’d love to see a grid like this:
Mercedes: Rosberg, Bottas
Red Bull: Ricciardo, Vettel
Ferrari: Alonso, Bianchi
McLaren: Räikkönen, Hamilton
Lotus: Kobayashi, Vergne
Force India: Hülkenberg, Perez
Williams: Button, Grosjean
Toro Rosso: Kvyat, Da Costa
Sauber: Kovalainen, Frijns
Marussia: Magnussen, Vandoorne
