F1 » Rosberg capitalises on more Hamilton woes


R6Ryder:
Jim Clausen:
R6Ryder: I'm really trying to enjoy this season in F1. This kind of **** is making it very difficult to enjoy the title fight. I wander if all the hamilton haters will discredit Nico and say it was "gifted" since I'm 110% sure that if the roles were reversed everyone would say Lewis only won by default.
You do realize the winner of Abu Dhabi scores 50 points? There is a distinct possibility Rosberg could lead by 49 points going into the last race and a DNF could leave him out of the WDC by 1 point if the second highest points driver wins. Would you then say the Championship winner is gifted?
I'm not saying anything was gifted. I just often read comments where fans take Lewis' title away and say he was "gifted" the title in 08.
I bet Tim O'Glock got a lovely Christmas present though :)

F1 » Rosberg: I want to fight with Hamilton


In 8 seasons Rosberg has never finished higher than 6th in the championship. He hasn't suddenly over winter become the top driver in the field but has been given a car that is way ahead of the rest. Sure, he is using this tool to good effect but so is his team mate (when it doesnt fall apart/burst into flames). Neither driver has much of an advantage in driving. But a racer wants to race and beat his rivals and with the W05 there is only one rival and if he is way behind it will be another Sunday afternoon toddle around to the chequered flag for Rosberg. He's not getting much fun out of it at the moment. Hamilton, however, has to scrap his way through the field, which he will probably enjoy, especially with such a huge car advantage. Well, until the flange spigot dissolves or he slides off into some wet concrete laid down by Lauda. Be nice to have a Merc free podium though :)

F1 » Horner angry at ‘negative’ focus in F1


Blacklines:
mrfill: Racing? I don't call two cars belting off at 2 seconds a lap faster than anyone else racing. If the Mercs are 1-2 on the grid, what overtaking is there at the front? The mid-pack produces racing and overtaking but the idea of racing is to win and when you have to hope for a breakdown to have any chance of a podium, its no surprise that interest is waning.
OK,so there's been no improvement in the racing? No overtaking? No spectacle or interest this year?? Jeez... maybe you should compare this to the late 90's and then talk about interest.. If you honestly think that "racing" is solely for the top 3 and thats all F1 is about, then maybe you should go back to watching football. Nice and simple for the mind to digest with either win lose of draw....
I don't and only a clown would conclude that from what I wrote. "The mid pack produces racing and overtaking" And my general point is trying to answer why TV audiences

let me fill you in. At least we see 3 championships in one year. Just imagine, in the fifties a world championship was 5 races.
now let me fill you in with no requirement for imagination. From 1950 to 1959 the lowest number of races which counted towards the championship was 7. That was in 1955. Years 1950/2/6/7 had 8 races, 1953/4/9 had 9, 1958 had 11 and 1951 had 14. Other non-points scoring races also took place.

F1 » Axed Caterham staff to sue new team owners


These people may not be employees (PAYE and with the Caterham paying employers NIC) but contractors who maintain limited companies. The computer industry had lots of these in the 1990s. You got more money but no paid holidays, no sick pay, no pension scheme and you could have your companies contract cancelled without compensation. You oaid yourself a small salary (to avoid NIC) and took the rest using dividends (avoiding income tax and NIC). Redundancy does not apply as the employer (the limited company) still employs the employee.
