F1 » Should F1 be celebrating the value of modern celebrity?

Personally, I follow motor racing for the racing. I don't give a t055 about what "celebrities" might be there as long as they don't interfere with the racing - when cameras dwell on some non-person in a pit - that's when I get irritated. Having been, on occasion, at a meeting in a sponsor's suite, I usually end up slipping away to get trackside and enjoy the racing up and as close as possible. On the topic of attracting a wider audience, I still remember being at Silverstone in '92 when the Sun's "Mansell-mania" was at it's height. If that is an example of a wider audience, then no thank you. That was the one and only time I have been concerned for my safety, and that of my son, at a motor racing event (from the spectators that is).

F1 » Boullier: McLaren has seconds of potential to unlock

FVA47: Didn,t Honda have driveability problems with the old engine? The solution then was to fit a Mercedes engine and call it a Brawn!!
The drivability of the Honda at the time you are talking about was not the problem, if the Honda engine was on offer at that time Brawn would have used it and not the Mercedes engine and he would have made a couple more millions out of that project.
Not so. Both drivers commented at the first test of the BGP01 that the Mercedes engine had a far better torque curve than the previous Honda engine, which was all top-end power.

F1 » Force India proud of Hulkenberg's Le Mans win

richard: i am delighted for hulk. but it is funny....from most reports it would appear that he alone won the race. two lesser known drivers...tandy and bamber... also contributed to the win.
richard, having managed to get full coverage (and managed about 18 hours between naps), the 19 car's performance was just about unblemished. Both Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber were every bit as strong as NH - But, of course Hulkenberg is the first active F1 driver to win since Johnny Herbert in '91, so it's not so surprising that the press focus on him. Was yet another great race - even down to getting rain in last 30 minutes! Roll on September at Austin.

F1 » Six of the Best: Overtakes at Monaco

Skooter: I will never understand why Monaco is still on the calendar when places like Silverstone and Monza get threatened with being axed by Bernie. Okay, it is historical, but from a racing point of view, its garbage. And F1 is about racing. At least in theory.
or lack of????? monaco is the ONLY track that is not charged for running a gp !
It has glamour like no other - mind you the costs to eat etc there go through the roof in May. Still some nice bars on the harbourfront where you can chat to some of the mega yacht crews - as I did this time last year!
