F1 » Malaysian Grand Prix preview


Hairy, Of course we "care" more about some deaths than others, it's because we know about them. A national tragedy played out in front of the World's media is going to generate more interest and sympathy than someone's granny popping off in her sleep. (apologies to anyone who's granny has just popped off) It's unfortunate timing for the F1 circus to descend on Malaysia and I think they should and will show suitable restrain and respect.

F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’


Some people are being a bit too simple here, nobody follows F1 JUST for the noise but it is a big part of the whole experience and largely removing it removes part of the experience. I can't imagine many of us who have followed F1 for more than a few years ever learns very much off the commentators so would you watch a race with the volume muted since noise isn't important? Marussia (I think) did a test last summer at an airport near me. I was in the garden and could hear it as clear as a bell even though it was 4 miles away as the crow flies and it was still spine tingling! (I was in the garden supervising the girlfriend while she cut the grass, can't trust her alone with the lawnmower she might have an accident and damage it)

Stace: Females. Really. Using the word in that sentence, that way does two things. Belittles women (even stops women asking questions every time a car goes past would have been better), and generalizes the whole female population into those who are ignorant of what you think is important.
So female is a sexist word that belittles "wimmin"? I took my cat to the vet recently (a woman vet!) and she asked what sex is your cat? so I replied she's a female, so was I being sexist and belittling to my cat? Or was I just being catist? Either way I better apologise to her. Oh I also told the vet that she must have a very understanding husband to let her out of the house to do vet things each day.... :rolleyes:

F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’


The ludicrous thing is F1 has invested tens (probably hundreds) of millions on these new rules to achieve partially better fuel economy and as a by-product quieter engines. Two things that in 35+ years I've never heard an F1 fan ask for! Strange that all of a sudden we have all these "fans" appearing claiming it was all too noisy and was upsetting squirrels! Where were they last year, hiding behind the sofa covering their squirrels ears?
