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).

F1 » Rosberg dismisses qualifying deficit

I've been critical of Hamilton in the past. Never of his speed, I just questioned his mental toughness and mental stability. If he keeps his head together throughout the season, I see no reason for him not to totally dominate the season. I think last year we saw a huge maturing process for Hamilton. He appears to be a much more complete driver than in the past.

F1 » Fernando Alonso to miss Australian Grand Prix

Jim Clausen: McLaren seems to be in quite poor shape, at this point. The PR efforts by Ron Dennis only serve to make things worse. I really questioned the move by Alonso to McLaren. I thought Williams would be a more fitting drive for him. Possibly no offer coming from Williams. Alonso definitely could put a Williams in the win column.
I'm sure if the price was right Williams or any other F1 team would take him. Alonso is the one who has to decide if he wants a race winning car or money.
I do recall Williams signing Senna and Prost, separately,. I'm sure either of those didn't come cheap. I do believe the biggest motivation, at this point, for Alonso is more WDCs. Possibly, Alonso thought McLaren teaming with Honda would provide a resurrection of glory days past.
