F1 » Ferrari boss calls for F1 ‘revolution’ to win back fans


I stopped watching car racing in 2000 (after 40+ years) when the cars became too efficient and the racing like watching a Scalextric race. I think back to Gilles Villeneuve who I believe in one interview said that F1 should have V8 engines in a Formula Ford chassis! So no wings, basic (but safety) bodywork, no pit stops, fewer electronic aids. I used to like watching cars for the excitement not because they have the latest technology. That's why the only car racing I watch now is historic racing. Just a thought from an oldie!

MotoGP » Rossi: 800cc MotoGP's biggest mistake for 15 years.


I must be old fashioned! I don't really care what capacity MotoGP bikes are. I would simply like the rider to be in complete control of the bike and not a computer. That's what caught my interest in riding a bike in the first place and why I still ride. I KNEW that Hailwood, Surtees, Duke and Agostini were better than me (Okay I also know that all the current GP riders are better than me too!!)- but a computer determining how much throttle to use and where on the track..........no!

F1 » Brabham family mull legal action over name 'rebirth'


I'm afraid that I DO remember Jack Brabham - at a time when F1 drivers conducted themselves with dignity. I no longer watch F1 after 50 years of being a motor racing fan - and no I don't look at it with rose tinted spectacles. Like every other sport today it is dominated by sponsor's money, a very sad state of affairs. I hope Sir Jack is successful. Like Gil Bouffard, I take umbrage at names which mean something to me, being used to generate commercial interest. (There is only ONE Eagle F1 car - that glorious V12 Weslake.)
