I think it has something to do with the venues. The classics like Monaco, Canada, Spa, Monza, Interlagos, Silverstone I always get excited by the result and to win those races is really something that a F1 champion needs to be complete, i think as a fan. Where the standard copy paste Tilke tracks means nothing. That is just another small step on the way to the championship. And i think it is because the venues are just not special enough, they all look the same and there is no history there and we all know they will be scrapped when they can’t pay Bernie enough anymore.
I don’t think you need to change the championship in general i just think we need more unique tracks in more special places, decided partly the fans and in some great scenic locations with a track that is very demanding for the driver.
But that is just my theory. I don’t know since I weren’t around back then.17th May 2011, 8:50 at 8:50 am #16878616th May 2011, 20:58 at 8:58 pm #167882
@Ratboy ah okay i see. I just looked up a picture of a 1996 Benetton and the shape was exactly the same, but you are right it must be a 1998. Though the engine in the car i linked to has a V8, where the 1998 has a V10. Soo.. it may be a 1998 chassis with a 1996 engine fitted? I don’t know, but it seems a bit weird.16th May 2011, 20:13 at 8:13 pm #167880
@Ratboy it looks like it to me. Just a slightly different livery. But if it isn’t a ’96 Benetton what is it then?16th May 2011, 20:03 at 8:03 pm #1678784th May 2011, 19:46 at 7:46 pm #155249

My dislike list, in no particular order.
L. Montezemolo – i just really hate everything he stands for.
F. Alonso – just seems arrogant
E. Jordan – most of the time i think he is great, but some times it is just gets too awkward
The guy who writes Hamilton’s speeches. – i want to hear his own words!
H. Marko – after Abu Dhabi 2010 he said something like “i didn’t care which of the drivers won, as long as it was a Red Bull driver”.. why is it that i just can’t believe that?
F. Briatore – guess why?
R. Barrichello – complains too much.
The ladies on the way to the podium – it is just too fake.
The guy who decided that Santander trophies was a good idea – again fake, ugly and no history
B. Eccelstone – focuses too much on money really and fake rain? really?
H. Tilke – just don’t design exciting tracks17th March 2011, 13:33 at 1:33 pm #163554
Andrew: well it was F1 i had in mind, but expanding it to other racing series could be interesting too :)
