WSBK » Double points, extra races for final rounds?

...for the record my previous post was very much sarcastic. That was a reference to the fans' reaction to double points in F1. But yeah, if they somehow make it more relevant by extending the race for example, then it may certainly be less of a horrible idea. But is that really an option? For starters, are there any practical problems with extending the races, fuel capacity, tyres, refuelling possibilities etc? I can see there might be some issues there in terms of personnel and equipment available to cope with it etc.

F1 » Lotterer confirmed at Caterham

Well Kristensen at least managed to win an F3 title, but his problem was that he didn't do well enough in F3000 in his two seasons to land a seat in F1, though he came fairly close I understand. As did many of the guys on that highly debatable list. Wheldon even turned down an offer from BMW. Lotterer, on the other hand, took P4 and P7 in his F3 seasons, then went off to Japan and took the FNippon title in his ninth attempt. As someone stated, we've had drivers who won the GP2 title in their fourth appempt that couldn't make it to F1 because they'd already fallen off the teams' radars by then. And as for him not being a pay driver, well...

F1 » Rossi handed unexpected F1 race debut at Spa

Rossi was considered a huge talent back when he started racing in Europe, but since then he's been a bit hit-and-miss. I'd say his record in junior series is similar to Lotterer's actually, he's won the Formula BMW World Finals, finished P3 in FR3.5 and P4 in GP3 and Formula Master. He's had a race win in GP2 but no real championship challenge. Then there's the Le Mans wins of course... But Rossi is much younger, so it's hard to compare them equally. If Rossi had stuck around in GP2 for nine years I think he'd have a good chance of taking that title eventually... Anyway, what Rossi does have under his belt though is recent testing and practice runs, so with that in mind I'd expect him to be closer to Bianchi than Chilton typically is. And I expect him to be faster than Lotterer too, based on that recent F1 experience and a better car. Realistically though, they're both pay drivers with no chance of ever winning a race or title, and they will most likely share the last row on the grid
