F1 » Mattiacci keen to lift F1 engine freeze

Yeah freezing the development of a virtually untested engine always did seem like a strange idea. I think at the very least they should have been given a LOT more time for testing in order for the instant freeze to make sense. Though as pointed out, I'm pretty sure Mercedes won't agree and will fight tooth and nail to keep the ban in place. And Mattiacci would do the exact same thing if Ferrari had the upper hand.

F1 » Kate Walker: Nico’s alleged thoughtcrime

Er what? Way to go off topic there. No you can't be punished for thoughts, but if you spread racist propaganda or propaganda about the holocaust not existing then that's an entirely different thing. Your own example, Emma West, was charged with racially aggravated public order offence. That's not a thought crime by any stretch. How would you even know what someone thinks if they don't express it in any way? West most certainly did. The point here is that all we have is telemetry and video, and if that does not prove on its own that Rosberg did anything deliberately wrong and he doesn't confess to doing so either, we can still never be sure he did or didn't because we can't read his mind. Heaven knows he's not the first one to do an ambitious overtaking attempt and stick his front wing where it doesn't belong, nor is he the last one.

F1 » Kate Walker: The rock and the hard place

They're just shooting their own foot IMO. Increased coverage will mean increased value, and that will benefit both the teams, promoters and commercial rights holder. Instead we get, just as Kate describes, an F1 that's increasingly niche. And that's very much happening already. Back when it was still on free channels here in Sweden, the coverage in magazines and news sites was much bigger than it is today, despite the fact that we now have a Swedish driver.

F1 » Hamilton/Mercedes contract talks on hold

Lulu has never even dominated his own team mate never mind eras.
Well actually he did dominate Kovalainen. Not sure that qualifies him as the greatest ever, but still... To be honest though I think you're on to something. I'm convinced Mercedes hired him because they saw a new, younger customer base evolving and they felt his brand would strengthen that even more. But I think he's turned out a bit more polarising than they hoped for, and as such may turn away their main customer base. If that's the case then it will definitely not be worth it. Trouble is, he is considered one of the biggest stars in F1 today, rightfully or not, so they need a big name replacement.

F1 » Hamilton ‘will always put the team first’

And he's still talking about it like those points somehow belong to him. He will never get them back? No, you can't have them back because you never had them FFS! How many points does he have in his own tally? A wild guess would be that all of 300 points are really rightfully his and the only reason he doesn't have them all is that the team, the FIA, Rosberg and probably a few others I forget too are conspiring against him.
