FE » Formula E title will open career again, says Piquet Jr


The TT zero race has been running for 6 years now and attracts the big names now. The bikes have improved enormously - first race average speed was about 87mph, now its over 120mph. These things will get better. The Battersea circuit was a bit ropey but if you have ever watched racing at Macau or some of the street circuits used in WTCC, like Casablanca, they are just as narrow in places and you do get overtaking. Piquet could not have won the title without overtaking so the track must be wide enough. FE is in its first year and the idea of using pop-up city centre circuits is pretty clever. Some would prefer to jump on a tube to see racing locally than have to plod over to some abandoned aerodrome in Northamptonshire to watch a procession. Its far from perfect and its very different from F1. I find it mildly amusing, no more, but it will get better. It will never become a huge crowd puller but it should not be dismissed on the basis of a 10 minute watch.

FE » London ePrix - Race results (1)


I too have had a look. It reminds me of full size Scalextric though. The whole idea was to run the series in city centres using a 'pop-up' circuit to avoid disruption. Roads only have to be closed from Friday to Monday. However, the resulting tracks are usually terrible, especially the Battersea track which looks like a cycle track in places and is horribly corrugated. Its not the future as such, although electric power is going to be seen more and more in many series. I quite like the look of the cars - neat and uncluttered - and the car changing half way is funny. Some of the driving is pretty dubious and that spoils things, otherwise its mildly amusing. More interesting than watching paint dry but not by much.

F1 » Hamilton: I’d rather anyone won but Nico…

rob01: I am sure it's been thought of by others but Never stated so openly. Not smart but as I said the Kardashians are his role models. One of them ended up turning into a woman to further the act.
rob. i cant stand the kardashians, but i think that your comment was uncalled for. a person cannot help the way they were born. it wasnt some sort of style statement...it was nature
It took 66 years for him/her to figure it out? I dislike the whole lot of them. Everything they do is planned. The more outrageous the better. Hamilton falling into same trap.
Thought you were talking about Mercedes there for a moment....

F1 » Ecclestone: Mercedes not to blame for ‘one-sided’ F1


F1's current strategy is not to allow drivers to change their helmet design very much. That's all. Months of meetings, cups of tea, rich tea biscuits and lots of important (in their eyes) people's time and Bernies baby - the F1 Strategy Group - decides conclusively that helmets cannot be changed much. One team or another has vetoed everything else. With a strategy like that, F1's future is safe in Bernie's and Mercedes hands. Vorsprung durch technik Bernie really must start learning that repeating things won't make them come true. It's called Bouillier's syndrome or Quantuming
