F1 » Dennis returns as CEO of McLaren Group

I am uncertain if Dennis will resume his previous role or not. Time will tell. However, Whitmarsh's absence can only fuel speculation that his days are finished. Therefore, he should have been present but was not. So, I suspect he is gone and the question might be asked, does Ron have a replacement other than himself? I somehow think he will find a replacement, but will also be much more hands on than in the past few years. Is this good for McLaren? Again, time will tell.

F1 » Raikkonen starts work at Ferrari for second time

"good to be back to work", "like the simulator", nice to visit with old friends":) Sounds like Kimi will have to talk even less as Ferrari has secured a great PR person to run interference with the media:) Kidding, but I do hope they will handle him better this time around. It is clear that when Kimi is comfortable her performs very well. Think about it. He left McLaren yet they wanted him back. He left Ferrari and they have hired him again. He clearly must have proven himself to the members of both teams. How many drivers do we know that are welcomed back to a previous team? Not many.

F1 » Gerhard Berger critical of 'underpowered' modern F1

Taipan, I agree with you with respect to speed. I think some of the additional corners etc. added to slow down the speeds on the straights and other meddlings with track design have been part of the problem. But in some cases the cars are faster today and yet less spectacular. Because of the improved aero packages Eu Rouge can be driven flat out. I think we all wish to see the drivers challenged and the cars dance a little more on the track. Those were exciting times and i still hope that better tires and less aero equal more mechanical grip and better racing.

F1 » Gerhard Berger critical of 'underpowered' modern F1

What would Senna think of the new cars? Well, in one of the new cars he would almost certainly have survived the crash and be in a position to offer an opinion, which is good. So I disagree that the sport has become too safe. I do, however, agree that some of the spectacle has been lost. Yes, they had 1000 hp engines but lap times are still extremely fast due to other developments. I think engines with fuel to run flat out for the full race, and tires that provide great grip for at least 20 laps would add to the show. The DRS has effectively dealt with the inability to pass criticism. Also, I would prefer to go back to single lap qualifying. I loved watching that part of F1.
