F1 » Rosberg’s pride at silencing ‘very unfair’ critics


If two races wasn't enough to judge the new regulations, then isn't one race too little to now judge it a success? Isn't that doing the same thing? Maybe the Merc, Rosberg and Hamilton fanboys are happy, but the rest of us saw a 'race' in which one team opened up a 24 sec gap in 12 laps. That's not much of a race in my book for the fans of Vettel, Alonso, Kimi, Jenson, McLaren, RBR, Ferrari, etc. As for the other racing it was mostly between teammates. How is one team dominating a huge success and vindication??? Lets see how it goes on tracks with less straights. Some fans don't like the new sound, think the emphases on 'green' in a tad hypocritical and didn't like the racing in the first two races.... How is that unfair? Would you just prefer fans turn off the tv and not tell you what they don't like?

F1 » Kate Walker: Jean Todt and the noises off


But, Mr Todt... is yet another year of one team dominating a good thing? Yes, it’s progress and change, and you can't stop it. On the other hand, as consumers we have the right to dislike the new product they present to us. We then have the right to take our business elsewhere. As a BUSINESS they then have weight the effects. Have they lost or gained consumers due to those changes and based on their finding they have to then decide if the product needs to be changed or not if they want to stay in business. If they find too many customers don’t like the product, they are well within their rights to either change to what the customer is willing to buy or not change and go out of business. F1 is a business first and racing series second, but RACING is the product they are trying to sell. So they need to do what’s right for their business. The customers seem to be speaking, how well they are listening (historically they haven’t listened well) will determine their future direction.

Manufactures have a history of coming and going in F1 at their own leisure. Be very careful putting all your eggs in their basket. Williams, McLaren, Sauber, Cosworth, etc have show the desire and ability to support F1 in the long run. Make sure those teams are happy and F1 will survive when the manufactures drop out, and (except for Ferrari) they WILL.

F1 » Rosberg’s pride at silencing ‘very unfair’ critics


bikenutter: Hmm perhaps we should dig deeper.... or maybe you people are overanalysing and should do something else with your time. I dunno go for a walk.
You're right.... perhaps we should just accept everything others tell up and not make up our own minds. If we don't tell them what WE don't like, how do they know what to fix if there is a problem? If everyone just kept quite then we would just have to accept what they give us or stop watching.... Neither are acceptable to me as without fans there is no F1

F1 » Hamilton 3s clear on second morning


In my previous post I said "Also the fact that there was a huge rules change and we STILL have it. Wasn't 4 years of it enough?? " Someone disagreed with that. Can that person or someone else tell my why 5 years in a row of one team dominating a season and winning most of the races is a good thing? Is it because now you like the team/driver that's winning or is there another reason?

Taipan:
richard: ty. you are Scottish aren't you? have you worn a kilt? I thought that real men up there went commando?
Wore a kilt once many years ago (sister's wedding) not my favourite garment it's rather draughty! Ideal attire for quick caber toss though I dare say....
Man, you in a kilt.... is that really a picture we need to be painting here?? :p caber toss... nicely done :)

Taz:
rob01: we have had that for the last fours years. what has your panties in a wad now?
Apart from a few races like Hungry Red Bull never had the performance advantage Merc are enjoying, not 2-3 seconds a lap, 1-1.5 maybe. Merc are doing a good job and clearly had the best engineering expertise to deal with the new regs.
Also the fact that there was a huge rules change and we STILL have it. Wasn't 4 years of it enough??

F1 » Rosberg fastest on day one of test in Bahrain


Sunny... but isn't it possible to write the rules in such a way that prevents one team from getting such a big advantage over the others like we have now? That seems to happen far more when there is rule stability rather than changes every few years or so. The engineers, computers, wind tunnels, etc are soo good these days that they now looking for hundredths or thousandths of seconds How about if the rules give the teams less leeway in interpretation of the rules? Wouldn't that prevent one team from getting as big an advantage as Merc and leaving the others with little chance of catching up?

Firestorm.. it seems what you are advocating is a spec series like IndyCar. While that does produce close racing I don't think it's the best solution for F1 given that F1 has always been about each team producing their own car. With that it allows each team a chance to 'show their stuff', even with tightly written rules. I think that aspect should always remain. But, given that teams aren't required to and rarely have produced their own engines I have less problem with only having one engine. As long as it is done in a way that allows teams to produce their own cars, but keeps the racing close and minimizes the chance of domination of one team for an extended period of time. Meaning gives other teams a fighting chance to catch up.... cont
