F1 » F1 2013 POLL: Is it time to stop booing Sebastian Vettel?


Booing has no place anywhere, sport or otherwise. If you dislike someone - as many seem to with Vettel, then a more effective way would be to simply be silent. A throng of spectators around a podium who cheer/clap the others, but then fall silent when Vettel comes on, would leave a far deeper effect - an one he'd not be able to laugh off. Most of the booers, I suspect are recalling Malaysia. Whatever the justification might be (and personally I can find none) for ignoring team instructions, the fact remains he basically aimed a "low blow" at his team mate, and won that race purely because of it. In fact - you could actually argue that the booing is indicative of the public's preference for fair play - something to be glad about.

F1 » Kate Walker: The Max and Bernie show... again


@ money - F1 fans (at the circuit) are largely irrelevant - a few hundred thousand. TV and advertising revenue is all they are concerned about (which is why Ecclestone controls circuit advertising). As far as I am aware, there are no cable or satellite packages where F1 coverage is the sole portion (either here in the US, or over in UK/Europe) - multi-sports yes. So how, other than those damned viewer surveys, does one exercise one's preferences? As mrfill correctly states - F1 is a business - no more, no less. Hey Taz - who's Hilter? I agree - I had something of a laugh when I heard the revelations, and the way that rag went about getting it's "news" brought infinitely more shame to Britain than anything MM ever did - but I cannot recall hearing anyone talk about Raikkonen in a similar vein - even though his parties - certainly before his departure from Ferrari were - let's just put it "something else". Just my view. And since I'm not whiter than white, I won't express any outrage

@Money Since when has any sport been "for the fans"? Sports are there for the participants. If you enjoy that sport and want to watch, then fine. But don't expect changes to be made just to suit you, the onlooker. If you don't like it, go watch something else, or live with it the way it is. All sports develop, and changes occur, some good, some not-so-good. Unfortunately, with the commercialisation of many sports, including motor racing, changes have come about which are made purely to "spice up the show". Those should be put where they belong, in a locked, dark room (and the key thrown away). General: Mosley, for all his faults, was, at least, an FIA President who took action, hauling that organisation into the real world, transforming it from a French "blazer club" into a body actually doing a lot of good in areas across the motoring spectrum. Leave his private life where it belongs - in private. Many of those hypocrites decrying his behaviour would do well to look at their own pri

F1 » Webber handed 10-place grid penalty


Judging by some of the comments here, it's a toss-up who's more stupid - them or Webber. Judging by some of the "outrage" they're probably related to the fools I've seen trying to cross on foot 4 or 5 lanes on the freeways here - and had to swerve violently to avoid on a couple of occasions. Watch the video - see how close an open wheel is to them both (Webber & Alonso) and try to imagine the result if he'd been hit.

F1 » Webber handed 10-place grid penalty


They BOTH got the same reprimand - it's just that Webber already had 2 for driving reasons, so the penalty was automatic - just like getting your 4th FP speeding ticket - in 3 years - automatic 6 month ban. But it's pretty pathetic to have taken any action at all. Sometimes a "quiet word in the ear" is more effective. Respect is earned, not mandated, and the stewards did nothing to earn that with this.

F1 » Vettel: I’ll miss Webber rivalry


Vettel would have done better keeping quiet. His actions over the last few seasons suggest otherwise. As for Chamberlain - whilst,he had favoured appeasement, his actions in those immediate pre-war years bought Great Britain much needed time to start the re-arming process (which should have started some years before it actually did). Documents released in '67 under the new Thirty Year rule tended to support this view.
