F1 » Kate Walker: Dog eat dog eat F1


If you are a racing fan with less than a six figure income, F1 (read Bernie Ecclestone) wants nothing to do with you. F1 has become a club by the rich-for the rich. The money side of F1 has far outstripped the racing side. It's become a spectacle for the ostentatious to be seen and display their wealth. This includes the sponsors. I wonder how many of the celebrities seen at F1 races actually pay to attend. I would not doubt that even the travel and hotel costs are paid, either directly by F1/Bernie or a sponsor, for some of the celebs. F1 today is a far cry from the days of Frank Williams kiting checks to race, Ken Tyrrell building a car in a woodshed, racers forming their own teams, ala Brabham, McLaren, Gurney, to name a few. All of the aforementioned produced winners, btw. Thankfully, I was lucky enough to attend F1 races in those days. A racer who was daft enough to start his own team today would quickly be parted of his money.

F1 » Ferrari appoints new F1 team principal


Nigel Tasker: Ferrari are obviously in a mess, it seems to me they don't know what to do. Get ross Braun back and quickly if you want to get some proper F1 organization back in Ferrari they need it.
I totally agree. Give Ross the keys and get the hell out of the way. Both of which Ferrari will never do. Next year, I predict, Ferrari will have difficulty scoring championship points.

F1 » Ecclestone: ‘No point’ F1 targeting young fans


Dear Barney Ecclestone, I am seventy years old, but I will not be attending any F1 races. Too difficult to access most areas with my walker. My oxygen tank is not allowed in some places due to security concerns. I have retired my Rolex for a watch with oversize numerals. My cataracts make it difficult to distinguish one car from another. No doubt, I am the exception to most septuagenarians. I'm certain next year's races will be packed with people seventy and over. For those over seventy and no longer with us, I'm sure they will be there in spirit. If only you could find a way to make a claim on their estates. Best to you, Barney!
