F1 » Red Bull could risk FIA wrath again

@ProfessorX Yeah, I think you're moving more towards what should be the real issue. The FIA seem to be mandating new regulations with being able to provide a reliable and incontrovertible means of measuring conformance. That would seem to be both stupid and incompetent. Doubly so when the regulation appears as superfluous as this one. I struggle to understand quite what it is intended to add to an overall fuel limit anyway. F1 has become increasingly over-regulated over the last couple of decades and for me the 2014 regs have finally crossed the line between over-regulated and bloody farcical. I almost expect to see Brian Rix (Google will tell you) legging it down the pit lane one of these weekends, trousers round his ankles.

F1 » Six of the Best: Italian Nearlymen

Nice article Crash. More like this please! Was privileged, many years ago to meet Elio do Angelis at Brands Hatch and found him every bit as charming as his reputation. Both Patrese and his career I think, suffered more damage than was generally understood as a result of the shabby treatment he received as a result of Ronnie Peterson's accident.

F1 » Lauda plays down Vettel speculation

To say "We're not trying to get him, as he has signed a contract with Red Bull until forever." does not equate to Lauda declaring that Mercedes is not interested in signing Vettel. Far from it. It simply states that at this point in time there are legal obstacles to them doing so. It manages to efficiently and completely sidestep the issue. Which was of course, exactly his intention.......

F1 » Hamilton: 'No fun' with these tyres

In a series supposedly based on leading edge technology and "pushing the envelope", frankly, driving on anything other than the very best tyres the supplier can produce is farcical and is an insult to F1 and its devotees. A ridiculous rule. As is the artificial you-can-only-flap-your-wing-when-following-within-a-second rule. But worst of all, the most ridiculous rule of them all is the ban on testing. What other sport on Earth bans TRAINING?
