F1 » ‘Shouting loudly’ all that’s left for Button


USF1Fan: No doubt about Alonso being devious. Great driver, yes, but not somebody I would want on my team in any endeavor. I like Button and Mags and I hope the prevailing wisodm/rumor mill are wrong. Maybe Alonso has found some backers and is buying Cateham or ex-Marrusia. I would far rather see that than him back at McLaren.
Agree... this last couple of years he has shown his err, shall we say, less favourable side! In recent interviews (including todays) he uses the phrase "Next Project" now, if he was going to McLaren, surely he would keep saying "my next team" .. wouldn't he? I'm not convinced he is going to McL. ... I think after Vettel was "confirmed" by Horner at Ferrari Alonso was backed into a corner, and he has activated plan B .. I reckon he is so "full-of-himself" now, he cant stand being told what to do, how to drive, so he is becoming (in football terms) a player/manager of his own team. No-one to p**s him off or show him up!

F1 » F1: Paffett to leave McLaren


I thought the story was about Gary Paffet .. why are we all talking about Alonso? Anyway.. good luck Gary, I'm sure another big team will give you a job. ... So that begs the question (irrespective of who is the lead driver) as to who will be test/reserve? Can't see either current driver accepting that role (it's pretty meaningless nowadays) my guess is a young hopeful that Honda approve of & would like to push.

Sportscars » Davidson: WEC title biggest achievement of career


Sorry, drifted off-topic! Yes, well done to Ant & Seb there IS a life outside F1.....! I still keep hearing Alonso's words about... ".......good for Ferrari, too" Has he thrown us all a red (oops!) herring ??? Maybe he & Ferrari are doing WEC next year...(with a LMP1 or 2 car)??? Could be the shock announcement of the year! I think something's brewing there.....

Sportscars » Davidson: WEC title biggest achievement of career


JimmyTheRealOne:
tellboy: so much better than f1
It is, but it'll never be as popular. Not many people are willing to watch a 6 hour race, albeit very eventful. Certainly not casual fans who make some 90% of F1's viewers...
Good point Jimmy. Therein lies the rub... it's all about endurance as well as speed. We went to a WEC event at brands years ago and indeed, it was a test of endurance for the whole family .. my kids were pretty good considering the length of the race... it was a novelty, & good weather, so that helped.. I couldn't see them enjoying it on a regular basis though! Maybe introduce a "sprint" type race at selected circuits though the season to encourage newbies and marginal fans along? Works for some other series.....

F1 » Caterham F1 will race in Abu Dhabi


richard: small teams of old were started and run by genuine enthusiasts. and they served their aprenticeships by working their way up to f1 through lesser formulae. recently, the small teams that have been formed have been purely business ventures! what experience or input had fernandes in any motorsport, before he founded malaysia f1? purely a business decision.
Spot-on !! Perfectly summarised!

F1 » F1: Smedley praises Williams’ resolve


boger: I thought that he will resign or being fired as both drivers payed for team errors in the promising race and it was not the first time. The car is capable but the team is under par. So, who is responsible?
ooh... bit harsh! Looking at the bigger picture Williams have made real progress, so I think they can be allowed a few little glitches.. (probably down to being human and nervous excitement). Glad to see Massa have a strong race, but he does seem to still be having these odd "blackouts" which worries me. (and almost certainly if I was Rob Smedley). I'd be inclined to say "thanks, Fillipe, you've done well, but Jenson Button is faster (and more reliable) than you"

F1 » Kaltenborn: F1’s agenda is ‘four or five names’


How about this.... bring back the V8's (for anyone who wants to use that engine ie smaller / newbie teams) just like we had back in the day when turbos first came onto the scene? They could still have good aero capabilities, maybe a bit lighter (than the PU types), or, as in touring cars, give the latest PU cars a weight penalty to help even out the field. WEC /LeMans racing has several power bands of cars all circulating at once so the "top" drivers also have to negotiate traffic safely as well as run their race. (Oh, sorry Seb.. ). Drivers who coped well in the V8 class would be "noticed" and also gain good experience of a proper F1 race. Could be that we wouldn't need GP2 anymore, but if kids are coming from F3 / F3.5 straight in then what the heck! That's my 2p-worth.
