my: i dunno, last few races were pretty exciting if you ask me.


Well the last one was due to a merc malfunction, a safety car & high tyre deg but there will be a few stinkers coming up I fear.

Alonso wasn't the only driver who responded in this manner at least three other drivers said more or less the same lines.
Reports are doing the rounds that the tyre warmers will not be dropped for next year (part of the cost cutting) as Pirelli is offering teams EURO 200K for a Pirelli logo on the blankets.

F1 is far to technical for its own good, it's taken away to a large degree the driver making decisions, the radio pit/driver should go, being told what another driver is doing or what stratergy they are on etc etc just doesn't help, the cars are far to quite when watching on TV, and I'm told on track, at times I'm watching practice and can not hear the cars, I think Alonso says about Kers is correct, all the new very complicated hybrid system may be very clever, but has it given better racing, which is what we all want, take away some of the aero and have more mechanical grip, the front wings should be just one element, at the end of the day, the teams have spent £100's of millions and I don't see much differenc, just a another car dominating, which as a Hamilton fan is good but I want to see more cars in the mix, I want to watch motor racing flag to flag, not fuel/ tyre saving, the amount of fuel the lorry's use in a seasons driving round the world let alone the aviation fuel far out

lol, F1 isn't technical enough for its own good, any innovation in the past 10 years has been banned, and what we have now is similar cars with similar engines and same tyres racing agianst each other, sure you have ERS and what not but its all regulated so everyone has the same system, where is the innovation?

WEC is where that innovation has gone to.

FIA Needs to step back and allow Innovation to exist, they have been slowly killing the sport for awhile now.

Alonso is right.
FI LITE. No engine sounds. Just banal commentators about tyre compounds, boiling points, stewards (who will get pole - Lulu or Nico) and WHITE LINES.
CONGRATULATIONS. F1 is now full scale SCALEXTRIC.
