F1 » Hamilton: Only team-mate can provide ‘true race’

benignlyindifferent: While I am not in favour of three cars, that scenario would be great to see. Reminds me of the Penske days with Fittipaldi, Unser Jr. and Tracy.
I had to use the old google machine to find out more about that as I'm not too hot on Indy Car knowledge. it looks remarkably similar to the MP4/4 no doubt thanks to the Marlboro livery. That's not a bad thing though! Is Indy car worth following then? i always thought of it as a poor-mans F1 which I know is a very ignorant viewpoint.
Those were the days of the Penske Mercedes, when Mercedes used the same basic architecture as the American manufacturers and created a monster. So much about equalization of different engine types.

F1 » Do Honda’s issues harm more than just McLaren?

NSU wankel was a failure, Mazda Rotary was a success. Interlocking rings were not Audi initially and Silver Arrows included Mercedes. There are over 160 present and former teams that have entered and exited F1 including Bugatti who still commanded a premium for their latest offering despite their absence from F1. How do you explain a person older than 50 still following, enthusiastically, a sport which has been on its last legs forever. This article raises nothing new or novel for me. In my lifetime I have seen companies BMW, Porsche dip toes, fingers whatever into the pool with various measures of success. They are still highly regarded manufacturers despite their failures in this game when they last participated. Why should Honda have more on the line if they fail is beyond me. Say Honda and the first thing springs to mind is motorcycle despite them producing great cars. Datsun, Nissan, Infinity which is the most associated with automotive success?

F1 » Do Honda’s issues harm more than just McLaren?

Success in F1 was is and probably always will be due to engineering excellence. It attracts engineers as apart from just mechanics because of the satisfaction derived from cerebral combat, proving that one can do the impossible so to speak. Drivers willingly queue up for seats as they too see it as a challenge to prove themselves against similarly gifted athletes. The competition more than the result is the driving force in my even though many drivers will readily agree that such and such a person is the best, they have no qualms about challenging them .
