F1 » No ban on alcohol sponsors in F1, says Todt


These people missed the all important qualifier "... and drive." If I got the urge to do laundry from seeing a Tide logo on a car, it would be just as dangerous for me to be doing it behind the wheel as it would be to drive drunk. So I wonder if they'd like to see a ban on laundry detergents too. I've seen that Johnny Walker logo so many times, I don't think I once got the urge to seek out their brand. I will drink whiskey because often times I don't want to drink a pint to get the same buzz of a shot or two. But that has nothing to do with some graphics on a car.

F1 » Silverstone boss: F1 not as exciting as it should be


The main reason we had cracking races in MotoGP was Yamaha's seamless gearbox for up- and downshifts, and Rossi's form. Imagine if Rossi was on a Duc and we had Lorenzo bringing up 9th place. Ducati are also mixing it up but wouldn't have bothered MM too much. The problem with F1 is the tires, IMO. Drivers are always saving them, short shifting, neutral throttle through corners. If it's visible on the camera they must really be cruising. If one decides to give it the full beans, they're magically 4 seconds quicker. That and the low reving diesel engines and the hair that used to stand up on your skin is not doing that any more.

F1 » Vettel berates Rosberg over team-mate jibe


Mrrat1: I can say that Formula E was a great event!! I got lucky and found it surfing channels...I really enjoyed the race. When they pitted to swap cars took me by complete surprise. It was great! The F-1 not so much. It was good to see the finger (I used to hate him)on the podium.
And how much of that enjoyment do you think was out of the novelty of the series? That could go away with a few races/seasons/decades. I'm not trying to put down Formula E. Not even close. I'm strictly commenting on F1 and the fact that not every race will be a nailbiter. People look at past seasons with rose tinted glasses, but in the 60s, you'd have races won by close to a minute, and half the field would retire. I personally prefer bikes these days, anyway. More passing, more respect amongst competitors. The rider ahead won't simply take a wide line out of a corner and push a rider off the track like you can see most times in F1 and especially in DTM. I refuse to watc

F1 » Horner denies Mercedes complaints are hypocritical


George Zaidan: even Ferrari isn't complaining, and that's saying a lot.
Ferrari aren't complaining because they've been a mid-to-back runner for a few years now. They're happy to be in the top 5, and a podium is a win to them. I'm no fan of RedBull or Horner, but when they were winning, everyone was moaning about Newey, accusing the team of all sorts of cheating, team orders, pushing boundaries of rule interpretation, etc. Rules kept changing mid-season to slow them down, adding to everyone's costs where lowering costs was "top priority". But somehow, with Merc, it's different. Is their advantage still their turbo layout? Or is it their aero package?

F1 » Saving 'face': Has F1 become anti-social media?


MrJones wasn't talking about every 84 year old. He was talking about the 84 year old Bernie, with the qualifier of "HE's stuck in HIS old school". And it's likely true. Bernie doesn't see the benefit of people talking about a race, sharing video clips of important incidents. Instead, the FOM take every YouTube link down. He doesn't realize hosting those videos himself would help him retain control of content and at the same time build up buzz and discussion of the sport on places like reddit. And he doesn't see what a 15 year old could do with Rolex advertising? This 15 year old will be 30 soon and he will likely be well off, and the brand name of Rolex would be well established in his brain where he won't need a commercial to buy one. He missed the course at school about building brand awareness and loyalty.

F1 » Fernando Alonso to miss Australian Grand Prix


MrJones85: Well, Honda can't be too happy about this. They are paying him big bucks and to have him sit out the first race is not a good return on there investment.
This is business, and there are no guarantees in business. That's why there's insurance. And backup drivers. And testing is still dangerous, even if it isn't a race, so there's every possibility your driver could get hurt. Try talking to a motorcycle team about return on investment, lol. So much easier to get hurt there, in a race, or practice, or off season training on dirt bikes, etc. But it's necessary if you want you rider to improve.
