F1 » Kaltenborn content with ‘step-by-step’ Sauber strategy

The Sauber driver disaster is a symptom of the financial straits that Sauber and other non-manufacturer teams are dealing with. Success for those teams is survival not winning races or championships. Kaltenborn's errors were caused by the imperative to save Sauber and all the jobs of the team members. Any moral business person would do the same. Pity is that Peter Sauber and Kaltenborn are in such an immoral environment, F1!

F1 » Lauda backs calls to make F1 ‘riskier’

I feel that what Niki and other critics of the current formula are really missing is a meaning behind the exercise. The technology is amazing and it's implications for future automotive applications are numerous but what does that mean in a sporting sense? Niki describes a "highest standard" that drivers aspire to and that is what seems to be missing or unappreciated in F1 today. It may be generational as there are thousands of fans supporting the best 'gamers' today with massive competitions around the world. Perhaps the skill sets of current drivers are under-appreciated by older generations and since they control the F1 media the message of what the drivers are doing isn't getting though to the younger generations. This doesn't solve the sporting problems for those who have a passion and experience of past Formula One but it does suggest a reason for the diminishing viewing numbers today.
