F1 » Hunter-Reay: IndyCar drivers can succeed in F1 again


sasquatchlives: As a devout F1 fan for 15 years I feel ashamed to say this but the only thing F1 has on its side at the moment is history and prestige. Indycar is a great series that does everything right when reinventing itself i.e. changes for the good of the sport and for the fans. If I was a driver in this series I would be very proud to represent it.
Yup.

F1 » Raikkonen laments predictable Tilke venues


JimG: Actually, one of the more entertaining races this past season was at COTA, which is a Tilke track. And that gives me an idea on how to make the Tilke designed tracks more entertaining for racing. All you have to do it build in a sprinkler system on the whole track to wet it down thoroughly before the race, like the rains did at Austin. :) As it dries out the race will get faster and in the wet it will let the better handling cars be more competitive with the more powerful.
I recall Bernie & Co. talking about more of this kind of artificial/manufactured racing not long ago. Like tires that wear out in three laps or DRS.

F1 » Hunter-Reay: IndyCar drivers can succeed in F1 again


JimBobC: With the great racing, competitive field and overall enjoyability of competing in Indycar, the drivers should not want aspire to F1 in its current state anyway
I concur. F1 is a wreck and "racing" is as boring as it gets. the 2015 Indycar season had some terrific racing. F1 is like the SCCA SOLO 1 series. Run as fast you can in your car, only racing the clock. The best F1 racing anymore is the hillclimb at Goodwood.
