But that’s just more rules that will get confusing and open to interpretation and grey areas. Sorry, its an interesting idea and great lateral thinking, but F1 needs less rules not more in my opinion!
Changes like wider cars are the ones that need to and happily are being made.
No points for overtaking wouldn’t work because two drivers could just overtake each other again and again.
I remember watching quite a tense battle for the lead in the opening 20 laps. In the context of this season, with a non-merc leading and P2 of course it was right to focus on the leaders.
Whilst the coverage wasn’t that great (Kimi’s spin, etc…), of course they should focus on the leading group of they are close.
Its not about overtakes, its about watching a live feed when one slips up or there is some drama. Its about what could happen, not what does.
Wider tyres, less aero, no DRS.
I admire your lateral thinking, but wouldn’t two drivers just get together and keep overtaking each other to rack up points?
To be honest its probably someone like De la Rosa in the simulator.
They look good. Clean and tasteful.
Depends how you define great, and that’s never going to be quantitative.
Vergne (again). I like Vergne, hope he’s around next year.
Another vote for Jev on Kimi. I love element of surprise passes.
Are you sure it didn’t read: “double the points, double the chance of a tainted championship?”.
It still beggars belief that people with such low intelligence can make so much money and have so much power in this world.
Great reading all the replies. Lots of shared feelings it seems.
In the end I missed the US but watched just the BBC highlights for Brazil, which was ok because it wad interlagos of course. I have to admit, I’ve drifted back to reading the odd f1fanatic article too… how could I possibly not??!!
Really hoping 2014 will be a good one.
The article in 4 lines (with direct quotes):
“McLaren are to use Honda engines”
“…the engine manufacturer has decided to return”
“The company has not yet officially confirmed its plans to return.”
“Honda would become the fourth road-car manufacturer supplying engines in F1″
Interesting if true, but in summary, an article designed to grab attention at the start, fading into speculation as you read on. One more click on the bbc sport website… success!
On separate note, I’m much more concerned with a Toro Rosso just pulling to one side than overtaking in a yellow flag zone.
