F1 » What we learned at the Austrian Grand Prix


Confusion at the press or debriefing meetings is hardly surprising, for some time F1 has become a third party sport, the FIA and FOM being one party, the teams and the drivers becoming the second and the fans and spectators the third and last. No one can doubt the whole show now is organised and presented for the benefit of FOM with the crumbs falling from the table going to the teams, mostly to Ferrari as that too is in the best interests of FOM. The fans and spectators well have you seen any evidence that anyone gives a ****** whatever for us? If the FIA had motor sports best interest in mind there would be an alternative sanctioned series in place where the greatest percentage of the revenue generated would remain in the sport rather than as it is alleged elsewhere being used for black mail payments to keep the revenue off someones back (what an interesting defense that is). All the comments both good and bad about teams and drivers will never be resolved until the basic problem

F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’


Not just the lack of exciting noise but the cost of TV watching will kill the general public interest. With E racing being free to air why pay to watch cars that sound like they have indigestion dominated by just two or three teams and that,s hopeful after the recent few years, Oh I have forgotten - Red Bull might be leaving all we would need is another 19 teams to go and we could have Caterham or Marusia at the front unless they let F3 cars in.

F1 » Global TV audience ‘fell by 50 million’


Rising costs due to regulations and falling TV numbers due to the move to pay TV - never mind who is winning the races, just blame anything other than the real problem. To much money leaves the sport due to Bernie's greed for TV revenue and stupid regulation changes. What will happen when the TV viewing numbers fall further due to the new power units unreliability, who gets the blame then, the hot dog vendors? One thing certain it won't be the regulators or pay TV will it?

F1 » Kate Walker: The price of Pastor


Total claptrap, are you going to also judge the countries that send teams to the Olympics when they are broke? what about the UK holding the Olympics when more and more have to visit food banks. Football soaks up more money from the poor world wide than F1 with players paid more than entire teams but then football is too powerful to criticise isn't it? Talk about not holding GP's in the middle east because of abuse of human rights then hold the world cup where? yes that's right somewhere where such abuse and virtual slavery of Asian workers is about at its worst. Self interest and personal greed is everywhere and no less than in journalism, but then no one has ever sold a good true story without adding a down side. If Pastor did not race nothing would change at home and very few would be bothered the only difference would be no story and a journalist without a story to blow out of proportion. Perhaps that would give Sam Bird a chance with the bonus of less sanctimonious journalist

F1 » Could new rules could prompt testing rethink?


Yew indeed new engines, transmissions and energy recovery systems not properly tested in the real world could lead to a GP with no finishers, that would be good for the sport! What about teams that scored either no or very few points in the previous season being allowed more testing than the big boys - it would make them more competitive and increase the value of the overall package. The more points you have from previous years the less testing
