F1 » Paffett unhappy at DTM super licence omission


dickiebird: OK, I know this isn't the thread to discuss this, but why a complete black out of the Formula E race in Argentine this weekend? It was a brilliant race, as it turned out. I really will be disappointed if crash don't see fit to publish reports on this new class in motorsport.
Look a little closer my friend, there's been 10 items about the Argentina event! FP1, FP2, Qualifying and Race results as well as "da Costa survives crazy race for maiden win", "Duran excluded, Piquet hit with post-race penalty", "Buemi left 'shattered' after crash in Argentina", "Piquet Jr surprised by podium in Buenos Aires", "Alguersuari rear-ended twice in Argentina" and "Da Costa calls maiden Formula E victory perfect"

F1 » Paffett unhappy at DTM super licence omission


mytyresaregoingoff: F1 drivers have the potential to be big earners (wages, sponsorship, public appearances etc.) so super license is a sort of franchise fee by which the FIA gets a cut. The problem now is how you get one. Forget who would have got one in the past and ask "Today is true talent getting a chance?" I think that some drivers are being overlooked in favour of those with national sponsorship or tie ins to manufacturers. So if this is a way of forcing the teams to spot the truly fast drivers it will not work as the vested interests will quickly skew the playing field in their own favour. ultimately it will change little unless the FIA force the system of licences and apprenticeship on down the qualifying formulas.
Or the FIA just use their common sense and say "sorry, you're currently not good enough to race F1", then again why take the simple option when you can destroy drivers, teams and series with a bunch of unnecessary rules.

F1 » Stoneman supportive of F1 Super Licence move


FVA47: If Max performs as per expectations, a lot of people will find it hard to justify the expense and time involved in the interim Formula's. If he doesn't and makes mistakes and causes unnecessary accidents , then it will justify the sceptics.
You still need the intermediate series whatever the outcome. If the likes of FR3.5, GP3, GP2 etc. weren't available then you'd have like 150 drivers trying to sign up to Euro F3. This is a very unique sitatuion where a very young driver has been plucked because of certian reasons that appeal to Red Bull.

FE » Buenos Aires ePrix - Free practice results (1)


Pesonally I love it, I make more effort to watch this than F1. For me F1 is far too political, it strangles all involved. Formula E is a breath of fresh air, the racing is exciting, with the city locations of the races it brings the sport to the people, the technology involved is interesting. I agree somethings do need to be changed, but it's a brand new series these things will iron out over time. What I like is the organisers listen to what the fans want as visible through the removal of the background music from the second round onwards.
