    I always liked the yellow-and-black Jordans and the yellow-and-black Renaults. I hope it’s true Haas will use those colors next year!


    @dragoll nice comment man, and to be honest, I got surprised by what you told me about Australia. Having 2 successful names in F1 and having Brabham as a past reference should be, in my opinion, enough to bring more people into the sport, at least into the circle of people already interested in other forms of car racing.
    And yes, F1F is like our “bunker” where people feel comfortable to discuss about our sport.


    To improve the sport, some simple approach must be mantained. I think having the points restored to 2013 standards is good enough.
    If we have these points for overtaking, it would need a points reorganization as IRL or Indy, but that is so hard to follow.
    I would agree with you if there would be JUST ONE POINT for the driver who improved his position the most places during a race. It would not diminish the effort done by top drivers (as, let’s say, Hamilton, wouldn’t choose to start last and try to win the race to get 26 points, when you know it’s too risky and he may end up with nothing) but for a Manor, it could be a good chance for them to try a risky strategy to finish, let’s say, 15th, but having recovered 5 or 6 places, it would recognize their effort.


    Deutsche Post, gave the Jordans their yellow color? or at least there was good contrast.
    Jordan F1


    Verstappen on Ricciardo, both for the skill (and guts) showed by the “kid” and because it is a Red Bull and I think that on a management level, Horner must feel “insulted” by that move (and that makes the pass even more special, considering how awful Horner has been behaving lately).


    @ph you can add Kimi helmets or at least one Seb’s helmet there!


    McLaren’s livery has easily become the first dissapointment of 2015.
    Let’s hope they listen to THEIR fans and change it for good! There is still some time to do it.


    I have a tie between 2:
    Irvine and his Jaguar.
    Raikkonen during his McLaren years (the black and red one)


    @f1fanf1fan oh, that race… I almost cried in the end (or did I?). I remember the TV host saying on the previous laps “that tyre is vibrating so much, it could blow” “it could make Kimi spin”… and then on the last lap it happened. Sore day.


    I would like Vettel to bring reddish helmets from now on, such as the one he had in Japan last year.

    And about Schubert, well, I know it saved Felipe’s life, but how unlucky he was that the spring hit in the “chink of the armour” which was the place where the visor joins the helmet.
    I read somewhere that zone has been reinforced since the accident.


    As I don’t know how to embed, I beg fans to post the mega pass of Hakkinen on Schu with Zonta in the middle. As I have mentioned before, that race is the one that brought me back to F1.
    Needless to say which race, true fans know what I’m talking about!!!!


    A “simpler” solution would be that, when FIA gives the order to lapped cars to run until they unlap, the rest of cars (the ones still going behind the safety car) reduce their speeds even more, maybe just 20 km per hour. That way the lapped cars would get their place faster.


    Regarding Toto’s comments (about his dislike of double points finale), and just to start a silly conspiracy theory (personally I’m not fond of them), let’s imagine Hamilton retires, let’s say, on lap 1 or 10, I mean, early laps. Would Mercedes pitcrew get an order to handicap Nico’s car as well? A super-long pitstop? An unsafe release or any other stuff in order to avoid the scandal that would be to have Rosberg champion because of the Abu Dumbi rule? I know teams want to win, but at the same time, both championships are already secured by Mercedes. Wouldn’t they do what it takes to avoid a perpetual stain on the championships they have worked so hard for throughout all this season?


    After all the bad comments I often read about F1 backstage, the new rules and devices such as DRS, the upcoming landslide of street circuits and this year dominance that hasn’t helped to improve the show respect to Red Bull winning times, just the contrary in my opinion (although I know many people consider this year racing better than ever, I consider 2010 and 2012 as really electrifying years) and knowing that Hamilton can lose a long and well deserved championship because of a farce, makes nothing but taking me away from F1. This year I haven’t seen some races for the first time since Spa 2000, the race that brought me into F1 (I was so lucky that, after not watching F1 for 10 years due to not having it broadcast in my country, the first race I saw while I was zapping was Spa 2000). F1 is starting to be little by little out of my life, from passion to mild interest only.
