F1 » What we learned at the Chinese Grand Prix


fasterthanaspeedingpotato: I do find these comments amusing. If it is all so boring - go on, turn over, and watch 'Countryside' and have some cocoa and a nice biscuit. Formula One has always been more than just overtaking and a loud noise. Go and watch some banger racing or something - it's very simple and you may understand it better.
I find it amusing that you think this is RACING and not boring. It takes a real genius to understand that a team that is 1-3 sec/lap faster than everyone else is going to win the race or who is going slow to save fuel/tires. There is nothing complicated about this type of racing so those of us that do understand it know that, so don't flatter yourself BTW, nice new trolling account you set up there.

Taz: @seashack Well said.
Thanks, and right back at you on much of you have been saying. I just hope we can make to the point they can fix things. If they can and want to that is. Car Compaines like Merc, BMW, Toyota, Honda come and go. So I hope they start to realize that and give the teams that sustain F1 more of a say like McLaren, Williams, Sauber, FI/Jordan, Lotus/Benetton. Rather and letting the huge car companies dictate until it no longer suits them and they leave F1 with nothing left and then they leave again.

Jim Clausen.... we keep watching because we have for many,many years and don't want to just turn our backs on it. We want the racing to be good and we keep hoping it will get better. We didn't like the domination the last four years and i think most people thought (hoped) the new regs would mean all the teams would be closer. We didn't want it to go from one team dominating to another team dominating no which team it was. I take it you are a fan of the team/drivers that are winning so you think it's great. But, some of us want to see all 5 of the WDC's fightng for race wins and not just one of them. If we don't express our displeasure then how do they know what/if anything is wrong. Waiting until ratings/attendance figures come out and show a drop maybe too late. If not from the public forums then how to they know many people don't like the sound or think the racing is boring to begin with?

PC, you mean sites where the fanboys go unchallenged. They are just able to spew their love of one driver and hate of others with impunity? Since you are of the same mindset and nationality then I guess it's OK. Some of us DON'T just like a team or driver because of the country they are from. Maybe we judge them based on other things like skill, race craft attitude, personality, the way they conduct themselves, etc. I can separate teams from individuals. I hated Todt's attitude when he ran Ferrari and just the same I don't like Horner, Ron Dennis, LDM, Marko, Toto Wolff or Lauda for their arrogant attitudes, regardless of which country they are from. I can also see great strengths AND faults in (alphabetical order) Alonso, Button, Hamilton, Raikkonen and Vettel. Put down you flag and open your mind. EDIT: this was in reponse to a PIerCarlo post that was removed?

We also learned that Mercedes was dead WRONG about the racing being great. lol, they were so quick to call the 'new' F1 a success after one good race (only in their eyes). They also were upset that others dared to not be enthralled by it. They claimed ALL the new regs were a huge success after one race while chiding people who said it was a failure after two races, which correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that double of one?? Pot meet kettle. So now it's three BORING races and one that was less boring..... 3 to 1 Merc, if were keeping track. We know how to count, but they obviously don't. Funny, many in F1 tried to sell us that the cars sounded great. They realized fans weren't going to buy their crap and are very much trying to fix the problem. So they do listen I just hope people (other than a certain drivers fanboys) stick around to voice what they don't like instead of just switching off. I know I'm getting to that point more and more with all this 'great racing'.

Agree Tai, we also learned that the fanboys of one driver have returned with a vengeance and are dead set on taking over. They will stop at nothing to endlessly praise their favorite driver no matter what he does, even if it's something they have or will savage another driver for. They will also stop at nothing to denigrate the other top drivers in order to build 'their driver up. Too bad they are not fans of F1 or racing, but only of one driver. Too bad they can't appreciate a good performance no matter the team or driver. I lament the impact they have had on the sport as what they say is usually not true, but always BORING. Many of the comments read like they were written by a bunch of bratty teens. The only consolation is that they will be gone when their driver retires from the sport as they don't actually care about it or racing. For those that haven't figured it out...... I am 'hating' on the fanboys and NOT the driver....my flame suit is on, but I couldn't care less.

We also learned that the driver isn't nearly as important as the engineers. Many said that the driver would be more in control and that this formula favored the 'smarter' drivers or those much more able to adapt during the race. Turns outs drivers don't have much control at all and all they are doing is driving to delta's determined buy the ENGINEERS. In many teams one driver is able to do it better than the other and has more pace when needed. No doubt the cars are also more difficult to drive fast. Too bad the drivers can only show that skill for a limited time. For the rest they have to drive in a way that saves tires or fuel and their pace is determined by the team and not the driver.

Sunny, there are MANY things you can say about them. One eyed is one thing, but also.... boring, uninformed, childish, etc.. Many of the comments are just unreadable because of their lunacy. For Crash's sake I hope they can make up for the amount of other fans that they lose, but I have a feeling that they are a VERY vocal minority. For those that never got what the whole point of some of Taipan's comments were..... still wondering??? I am less and less looking forward to reading the comments on this site. As the reasonable, rational, knowledgeable people are being drowned out by the crazies.... again.....SMH...

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘F**k all to do with motivation’


rob01: that's not the reason for the side bar with Velvet. but in both cases a foul mouth usually means they have a small vocabulary/mind.
rob... you may need to be more careful in your criticisms or your memory perhaps...... Lewis also used the word s**t about Nico having more pace than him in Bahrain. I don't have the quote, but do have one from 2013....enjoy :p "I'm not concerned about it, that's for the team to worry about," the 2008 world champion said of his team's apparent breaking of a ban on in-season testing by putting in 1,000 km with Pirelli in Spain. "I just have to focus on myself and try and get my **** together," he told reporters after Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix.

F1 » Wolff: Hamilton ‘in a league of his own’


ThePaddock1: we sure all know from taipan what hamilton has been like when at mclaren but since leaving he ain't done fk all apart from deliver whats "tossish" lol about that??
Paddy... I have to agree with here4. Isn't comparing yourself to Senna, saying you blew away you teammate, your teammate needs more time with the engineers than you, etc. kind of of 'tossish'? All those things have been said in the last month or so, all since he left McLaren. What about his new sense of 'style' and rapping? Sorry, I don't want to take away from the great success he and Merc are having, but it seems ANY success he has just wipes away peoples memory concerning him and that he is praised for things others would get savaged for.
