F1 » Button: The buzz is back at McLaren

Good to see that Mclaren look more competitive this season, however it is too early to suggest that they will be winning races. I don't believe that Mclaren will receive the same level of support as the works team and if they prove to be very competitive I believe politics will come into it and we will see Mclaren drop away as the season progresses. It is Mclarens final year with Mercedes and I don't believe that they will want to be providing information to Honda via Mclaren. I feel sorry for Button who is probably in his last year at Mclaren, it would have been good to see him become champion again but I feel that politics will get in the way.

F1 » F1 field is ‘mediocre’ – Villeneuve

As much as I agree with some of what Villeuneve says the facts are that he was kicked out of F1 because he was'nt fast enough and could'nt keep up with drivers he no doubt thought were below average. The other thing I would say is that the majority of drivers in F1 are only as good as their car and since the majority of drivers never get in a top car here are an a large number of so called average F1 drivers about. Most of them I'm sure would say if I'd had a top car I could have won races, Just how true that is we will never know.

F1 » Villeneuve slams direction of F1

F1 has been in decline for some time and the decision to run small turbo engines is both contrary to the cost cutting agenda and a reduction in the speed and spectacle of F1. There are I suggest at least three if not four teams who are appearing to run on thin air. The reduction in costs is being stalled by the likes of Ferrari and Mclaren because they are drowning in money and have no interest in helping the other teams. The fact that Bernie has about faced yet again and has invited prospective new teams to apply really sums up the situation. Villeneuve is right to say that F1 is in a serious decline so much so that I suspect in several years time we will be down to 8 or ten cars running round at reduced speeds in order to save fuel and avoid wearing the tyres out. How sad and farcical will that be?

F1 » Ecclestone tips Rosberg for title

It's just Bernie saying the first thing that came into his mouth, nobody should take any notice of what he says it's all calculated to cause people to think he actually knows what he's talking about, unfortunately for him most people lost respect and confidence in him a long time ago. Dishonest and devious people like him should be put out to grass and replaced by someone with some credence.

F1 » Magnussen ‘determined to justify faith’

I think he will turn out to be a good bet, if he starts to outqualify Button we should expect some good race results as well. It could turn out to be a very close battle and one that Button needs to win if he is to justify his seat. It's no secret that RD wants Alonso back and I think a Alonso/Magnussen pairing is much more likely as RD has never been a Button fan.
