F1 » Gerhard Berger critical of 'underpowered' modern F1

Completely agree with Berger. Not just F1, but the entire auto industry is in a bit of a weird point at the moment. Engines are being scaled down across the board. Heck, even Pagani are using smaller, forced induction engines in the Huayra. Yes, here and there, certain manufactures are still going for big, natasp engines, but I'm afraid this will not last. With that in mind, I think smaller, forced induction engines were the only way F1 could go. The problem for me though is everything else that's gone with it, being manufacturers are not allowed to run boosts in excess of a certain figure, only certain materials and metals are allowed, RPMs are capped, V6s and only V6s are allowed, and so on and so forth. Why not put a capacity cap at 1.6, but allow the manufacturers to choose whatever ICE layout they want? If it's about restricting power, the fuel-flow rate restriction will take care of that I'm sure. The electric motors might have been a place prime for extracting some more power,

F1 » Ecclestone calls for scrap on 2014 engines

Well this is confusing... The new engine program has already progressed so far down the line, yet now Bernie wants to scrap or postpone it? Surely he'd realize this move would upset a great many, important people. How many millions have already been spent on the R&D, manufacturing and testing? Does Bernie WANT to get rid of yet another engine manufacturer? If I was in charge of, say, Renault or Mercedes' engine works and I read something like this, I might just be inclined to make a certain phone call to a certain head of a certain department and utter the following words: "Shut. Down. EVERYTHING."

F1 » Grosjean: Everyone makes mistakes

"Everyone makes mistakes". I'd have added "...some more so than others." Yes, people make mistakes, but it's just happening too often for Grosjean at the moment. Consistency is normally a good thing, but not when it comes to messing up during a race. Maybe about time you give Sir Jackie Stewart a call and take him up on his offer? Just my take on it. Use it, don't use it, whatever.

F1 » Vettel: Still very competitive in 'the dream'

Despite what he says about toil and sacrifice, I'm relatively sure he's enjoying every second of his F1 career so far. I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest Vettel fan, but I can't help but be impressed by how he's managed his success so far at his age. I sometimes get the impression that he has a very big ego, but as soon as I see an interview of him, he comes across as humble and down to earth. Great mix of different drivers and personalities at this point in time.
