F1 » Tracks like Spa ‘vital’ for F1, insists Gastaldi


Taz: @Strider Falling out of love with F1 very rapidly. Went to the Ulster GP at the weekend. Now that's entertainment, average 131mph on small country lanes round a 7 mile track while racing each other on bikes chucking out 220 plus bhp. Absolutely bonkers. Been to 4 GP's but none were anywhere near as exciting or entertaining as this....or the forests back in the 90s when Colin was on maximum attack on the 95 RAC. I can't imagine spending the money to go to a GP while the sport is in it's current state.
That's why Yer Man, Joey is my all time hero. Ever seen the 'Road Racers' film or DVD? Hooked for life, is me.

F1 » Kate Walker: When the show turns fatal


Richard, as you probably know, this was a regional sprint car (dirt race) not nascar. These cars are direct drive, no transmissions. Even at caution lap speeds to keep from stalling, they slide all over the place. I've seen the replay many times and having no cares either way or bias, I haven't seen any thing blatantly intentional on stewart's part. Ad that Ward was wearing black on a dimly lit circuit. On the other hand a 20 year old is bullet-proof and can have questionable judgement. Unfortunately,this time the kid paid with his life. Obviously the authorities agree as stewart hasn't been charged, so far.

F1 » Kate Walker: When the show turns fatal


richard: walrus. i mistakenly thought that sprint cars were a junior nascar, due to stewart taking part. so i presume that it is the racing with framed buggies which have the large assymetrical roof rings? am i right?
Yes, Richard, the framed buggies. On dirt. Ed, BTW Stewart is a master of this sport and competes and promotes these races along with his nascar doings. He is very skilled and should be as in control of those cars as any of the best sprint drivers.

F1 » Maldonado keen for Grosjean to stay


" Maldonado who signed a new one-year contract extension at the German Grand Prix said the pair work well together and would be happy for the line-up to remain unchanged." When your teammate crashes in the garage, warm up lap, 1st turn, simulator, etc. and keeps bringing millions, that would work well, as long as the carnage is behind you!

F1 » Grosjean considering future over break


KillingTime: I had high hopes for Romain. He showed signs of brilliance, but things are not going his way - and patience is short in F1. He might be happier and better off following Mark Webber to Le Mans Prototypes/Sports Cars. Less pressure with all the excitment and real racing. Besides, F1 is going away from being the pinnacle of motor racing with having to save energy, save tires, harvesting energy, having to coast. It's no longer the all-out full effort racing it once was.
Great post. But it looks likes F1 has already left us.
