F1 » ‘Trouble ahead’ as Ecclestone warns manufacturers

Jem: I am becoming very confused over all this. Just who was responsible for the introduction of these "power units". Can any reader explain.
i dont know who made the first suggestion, but neither ferrari or mercedes wanted them, but it was renault who forced the final issue. and look at how well they did out of it! if renault had have voted against it, then we would not be stuck with them.
Todt pushed them through - Ecclestone has always been against. Originally was going to be 1.5l 4 cylinder, but Ferrari objected and V6 layout was agreed as compromise. They are utter heaps of cow dung and the sooner they are removed from F1 the better.

F1 » Marko wants Renault to prioritise Red Bull over own team

Richard - Honda '67 - 1 win - and that only courtesy of fuel issues on the final lap for Jim Clark (his finest race) at Monza. Apart from that, one 3rd, a couple of 4ths and a 6th. No poles, no fastest laps. - hardly set the world alight. It had power, but was overweight. Let's not even think of the RA 302.... RBR need to learn that slagging off a partner in public doesn't work (whatever the perceived justification).

F1 » Hunter-Reay: IndyCar drivers can succeed in F1 again

JimBobC: With the great racing, competitive field and overall enjoyability of competing in Indycar, the drivers should not want aspire to F1 in its current state anyway
I concur. F1 is a wreck and "racing" is as boring as it gets. the 2015 Indycar season had some terrific racing. F1 is like the SCCA SOLO 1 series. Run as fast you can in your car, only racing the clock. The best F1 racing anymore is the hillclimb at Goodwood.
Prescott's better.

F1 » Surtees awarded CBE in New Year honours list

I seem to recall many years ago an observation that Surtees was maybe somewhat too "direct" and that the "establishment" did not take kindly to having their shortcomings pointed out to them. However, he is as deserving of a "K" as Sir JYS. In terms of respect of his peers, and the motor-racing fans in general, he is up there with the likes of Moss & Stewart. At least Edenbridge (where Team Surtees were based) knows how to treat him.

F1 » ‘Great years’ lie ahead for Alonso – Dennis

I agree - "great" years do lie ahead - I believe he will achieve as much as he has in F1, if not more, in WEC - cos I believe he will head off there end of 2017, if not before.......and if anyone decries the sportscar championship as a step down, then they need to look at both the sophistication and excellence of the (LMP1) cars - every bit a match for F1 in engineering excellence.
