F1 » Maximum effort yields ‘maximum result’ for Raikkonen

xoxog: some people have said that the safey car was the reason for kr 4th place. while he did not have a great start and the flat tire didn't help, clearly both ferraris had good speed and tire degradation. i think that had there been no such issues kr could have made the podium with seb, his romp thru the field seems to have proved it. expect the ferraris to be very competitive in china.
I thought the same thing but, Martin Brundle from Sky says the Mercs are going to have the advantage again in Shanghai and that Malaysia was a tire specific track that suited Ferrari.
We'll see. Regardless, Ferrari made it possible to watch the F1 race today without falling asleep.

F1 » Wolff: F1 doesn’t need a big shake-up

dickiebird: Why is Wolff starting to p++s me off? The last people who want change are Mercedes Benz. Change might mean they lose their dominant position in F1. Couldn't have that now could we Toto?
Not that I disagree with you, but it's changes that got F1 to the poor state it's in today. Having long term, stable engine rules would go a long way to having a more competitive race. Get rid of DRS, double points and other gimmickry. Having more than one tire supplier is essential to greater competition. Severely limiting aerodynamics would help considerably. Having new rules from year to year does not enhance competition, nor does it delight fans. Someone in F1 had better get a clue or there'll be weeds growing on some F1 tracks.

F1 » Wolff: F1 doesn’t need a big shake-up

Bernie even said he wasn't interested in you if you were not wealthy. Evidently, there are not quite enough wealthy people that want to attend F1 races. Since I'm not of the wealthy class I'm certain Bernie is not interested in me. Bernie, I've got news for you. I'm not interested in you or your overpriced product (F1 races). Having followed F1 for over fifty years, I hardly have enough interest to watch F1 on TV, let alone attend a F1 race. Here in the U.S., motorsports racing of all kinds is on the decline. The once great CART series has morphed into Indycar. You'll find more people shopping at a Walmart on a Sunday than attending most Indycar races. The once worldwide spectacle of the Indy 500 is far less than of an event then when Clark, Hill and other F1 drivers contested it. The Daytona 200, a motorcycle race that once had world class riders and worldwide interest was almost cancelled this year. Both Indycar and motorcycle roadracing have been taken over and run by morons.

F1 » Wolff to Horner: Get your head down…

F1 has been a contest of technical superiority for a very long time. The Ford DFV, the early Renault turbo , Williams active suspension, the Renault dampener, the Brawn double diffuser come to mind. F1 is supposed to promote innovation, not mediocrity. I would prefer Red Bull leave F1 than to have them influence the rules. Influencing the rules is the province of Ferrari, or so it used to be (sarcasm).
