Jarno was clealry one of the most talented drivers in f-1 that never had a chance to race "the car". He made due with what he had. As to this story, he is dead on, maybe next year some egotisical Billionaire Hedge Fund manager will become Caterham's "star" driver.

Totaly agree...shame to Bernie...would like to see Toyota, Honda and BMW. What we have now: poor driving of payable drivers, band testings, no manufactures. And one more holistic question: where is the core of Formula 1 bussines and sport - competetion, pinnacle of technology and perfection???

I've been watching F1 for 40 years now and honestly speaking I don't think I've lost more that 7-10 races in all these years...
I've also had the Cable Tv package I have just because it had the only TV channel that transmitted F1 here... and for the first time in all these years i really don't feel like signing a new contract just because F1 in my opinion has become too much of an entertainment business and less a racing series...
As I said, it's just my opinion and feeling but honestly, I must admit that I've lost a quite a bit of interest in F1... for me, that's sad.

Frank if you're here just to slag of F1 then don't watch it! no one is forcing you to watch anything there's always moto gp or whatever sport you fancy, you might claim that you're an F1 fan for '40 years' but if so I don't think you would just think this lowly of it, the past few seasons has been entertaining if thats a downfall then I don't want 'real racing', I've watched F1 since I was 7 and that was 21 years ago and in that time I've missed 3 races and for you to say the days when Mclaren and Williams had a car advantage of 3 seconds or when Shumacher in his Ferrari years had special tyres and all we see is a Ferrari procession is more of racing than now then you're deluded, you're not an F1 or racing fan.

I have been following F1 for about 40 years and read and researched much of the history. I see F1 evolving in a different direction to what it has been. Right now we have 3 competitive engines and a number of chases. Some racing categories have only one engine and provide great racing.

I would like to see Honda, BMW, et al back in F1 but in these economic times it's not likely. I am actually quite excited that we may have 4 teams fighting for the title.

frank. i agree with steve and objective, even though i have a head start on them!
i follow f1, BASED ON THE RULES THAT EXIST AT THIS TIME! that is important. yes, i might abhor the rules and manipulation that goes on, but each year is different. differing teams get an advantage, differing drivers come to the top etc. but isnt that what makes it watchable?
if ferrari were winning every year since the 50s, would you even watched it in the 60s? NO, you watched it to see lotus rise to the top, or mclaren, or etc.
there have ALWAYS been rules, and it is thanks to innovators like chapman and now newey, that keeps us following the racing.

as others say, if you dont like f1, then dont watch it, or come on to forums moaning about it.

not sure what you can watch though....every motorsport has rules!
