F1 » Gerhard Berger critical of 'underpowered' modern F1


I've been following F1 and other forms of auto racing for over sixty years. In the fifties, sixties and seventies it was not unusual to lose a driver, from one series or another, every month. F1, Indycar, sports car, Nascar, they all lost drivers every year. I am much more pleased to watch a race knowing the chances of a driver getting killed are much, much less. I vehemently disagree with anyone who would like to revert to the days when racing drivers perished on a fairly regular basis. I don't need the added "thrill" of watching a driver get killed.

F1 » Kate Walker: All change in F1


Teams, such as Ferrari, McLaren and Red Bull, which will have way more money than the cap allows will find a way to spend it which will be within the cap rules. Money is part of the competition in F1. By capping budgets, a poor attempt will be made to level the competition. If you want to see racing at it's lowest common denominator, watch Nascar, for god's sake.

F1 » Ferrari: F1 needs to plan post-Ecclestone


F1 is an ego driven, money driven sport. Not certain which comes first, ego or money. Egos and money abound in F1 and for some strange reason Ecclestone was somehow able to keep things in check for years among the team principals. Once you have the inmates running the asylum you will have constant bickering and challenges to authority. I saw this happen to CART.

F1 » Ecclestone calls for more double points races


theoldgitspeaks: Daft idea from an increasingly daft old man, the sooner he go's the better for F1 and all of us. People in his position should know when to go and not have to be pushed, We need someone with some new ideas and less of a tarnished reputation, in short someone who is honest and genuinely wants F1 to improve and is less concerned with lining his families pocket.
That would be rather a difficult task to find someone you suggest to replace Bernie. "less of a tarnished reputation, in short someone who is honest and genuinely wants F1 to improve and is less concerned with lining his families pocket." I would say that's a contradiction in terms."
