F1 » Bahrain Grand Prix preview


COTA, being just outside Austin is on the edge of the Hill Country - and anyone who's been there (and it's a great city) will know that it certainly ain't flat. Yes, a lot of the elevation changes were man-made, however, as they also added viewing banking all around, it doesn't really look too artificial. The first GP, 2012 was a great weekend. Will be there for the MotoGP (then on to Midland, home of a certain former sportscar team based at Rattlesnake Raceway).

F1 » Red Bull could risk FIA wrath again


Having backed themselves into a corner in the first place, the team are between a rock and a hard place. Whichever way they play it, they would lose. None of the other teams would side with RBR - that's all part of life in the piranha tank. As for Pirelli last year, that was totally down to the tyre failures at Silverstone. Had those not occurred, I doubt if they/FIA would have made changes - and, had that been the case, the latter part of the season would certainly have been more open (even the most diehard RBR fan would admit that - the team itself acknowledged as such).

F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’


F1 should also be concerned about the attraction of MotoGP, if the Qatar race is anything to go by. Hopefully Austin will provide more of the same (cos I will be there). Having been watching (and a little bit of competing) since the mid-60's, the sounds have always been an integral part of motor-sport, for me, whether 2 or four (or more) wheeled. Memories of V-8 Falcons, Galaxies, Camaros and Mustangs and Mini's/Cortinas/Anglias are still quite vivid, to say nothing of Gp 6 & Gp 7 monsters - as much as the F1 H-16's, V12's & V8's. Was anyone on here at the first F5000 race at Brands Hatch - the thunder of those cars heading down Paddock Hill was, quite literally, earth moving. For the sheer sound spectacle, Outlaw Sprint cars on a dirt oval is hard to beat - and the very crudeness of the cars only adds to the spectacle. What I'm trying to get across is that what "type" of sound is secondary to the fact that there MUST be sound - our aural sense is as important as our sight in the ov
