F1 » Who would have shone in F1 2010 under old points systems?


In the end... the points system change did not make a great deal of change to the championship standings. However what it has done is allowed teams lower in the field to score points... which I agree is a cheap way... seeing that Williams would have scored just 6 points this season on a system where 18 years ago they dominated and one of their drivers managed to get into the 3 figure mark! It has ruined the history of the points system... Vettel scored 21.64 points less this season than Fangio did in his whole career... to me that doesn't sound right! However the old system was good when cars were unreliable, it meant that the slower teams could nick a point now and then and it meant alot to them! That won't happen now so the FIA had to do something to allow the lower teams get a chance of reaching the points.

F1 » Fernandes, Gascoyne respond to Renault deal


As far as I can read into this whole story. Team Lotus went into administration in 1994, David Hunt made a bid for the team and it was accepted, he raced Team Lotus for the final 2 races of 1994 (Suzuka & Adelade) and gave Mika Salo his debut! As far as I can see from that, David Hunt owned Team Lotus, Tony Fernandes brought the licencing/branding from Hunt. That to me suggests Team Lotus returned to F1 in 2010. Proton is part of group Lotus... the cars... Chapman always kept the team and the cars separate for finance reasons... if one went bust, the other would still be there! Proton may have the badge but Fernandez has the soul of Lotus! This is going to be one confusing subject that will probably change again before the season starts.

F1 » Webber finished F1 2010 with a fractured shoulder


Well that would explain the loss of form in the final 4 races! You would have thought he'd learn by now to stop cycling? Doesn't give him an excuse to winge and moan the way he did to the media about RBR in the last few races though... he could of handled the whole situation better.... as to me (not sure about anyone else) it looked like he had lost the will to drive and was picking someone to blame. :(
