F1 » Hamilton takes second F1 title with Abu Dhabi win


Does anybody really care? Another farcical season where the most entertainment was the childish spats between two mediocre drivers made to look talented by a car that's streets ahead of the competition. Congrats to Bernie, Toto et al for a truly dull season of processional touring punctuated by pitstops. F1 is a laughing stock. Scrap DRS, double points, KERS and other such gimmicks and gadgets. Maybe try 'racing' for a change - I don't remember the last time I saw such a thing in F1. Once upon a time this was a sport of passion, talent , ability and excitement. Right now, watching paint dry is a thrill by comparison. RIP F1. 'Pinnacle of motorsport' ? In their dreams......oh yes - and LH has a second title. How interesting it's yet again due to mechanical failure of the competition. Gifted another title. Bravo.

F1 » Hamilton wins first F1 race in Russia


One day this forum may contain lively discussion about what a thrilling race we all watched (pleased to say I didn't bother), with wheel-to-wheel racing, overtaking, skill, bravery, excitement and dicing for the lead right up until the chequered flag. Sadly, Bernie and his cronies have conspired to serve up yet another plateful of processional tedium, with the winner yet again remaining unchallenged throughout. How this dross can be considered any form of sport let alone the 'premier' class is beyond me. Rename it Formula Zero and change channels. Somebody needs to take a long hard look at the destruction of a Sport populated previously by legends before it's tired and dull reputation is set in stone.

F1 » Hamilton takes F1 title lead as Rosberg retires


LoveF1: Where are the F1 fans that want to see a real fight?? You know.....the type of battle that should be visible in what is regarded as the pinnacle of all motorsport? Last year, it was Red Bull and Vettel winning all the races (was it 9 or 10 consecutive races at the end). This year, it's Merc. Thankfully, there's a bit of competition and drama between their 2 drivers...and Ricciardo has won a few. In today's battle, Alonso takes the fight to the top 2 teams, but his tyres don't last long enough to let him finish the job....in those last few laps.... If you love real, intense competition in sport, this is all becoming very boring...very slowly.... ---------- From an F1 fan who, like last season, is just....barely.....clinging on to watching the rest of the races this season :-(
F1 has been dull for many years now. The majority of races are dull and processional. One stand-out car each season, which, as you quite rightly say, would win with any of the top ten drivers behind the wheel. The idea that F1 represents the 'pinnacle' of motorsport is truly laughable. Bernie and his buddies have relegated a once exciting sport to a predictable yawn-fest week in, week out. Take a look at Rossi in Misano last weekend, Shane Byrne in Assen this weekend - true racers, true racing.

F1 » Rosberg disciplined by Mercedes


here4thesun2: cont'd -- Since Rosberg was to Hammi's outside, at best, Hammi had a truncated racing line and needed to take an abbreviated right-hand corner to hit the apex of the next left-hand corner. Rosberg had THE racing line. But was on the outside, so he could not turn in order to clip the apex of the inside of the right-hander. When they took their right-handers, Hammi did not line up with his new apex or the traditional apex to setup for the next corner, but lined up with a point that would drive Rosberg off the track if Rosberg continued to follow alongside throughout the cornering sequence. Hammi drove from the inside of the straight over THE racing line in order to cut Rosberg off, then turned right to straighten his car. At that point the impact happened because Hammi was in the wrong lane. The collision would not have happened if Hammi left room and stayed in his racing lane.
Agree with you completely. They are the facts. People will have their own opinion and are free to do so. But let's remember this is allegedly racing. The stewards deemed it a racing incident with no penalty required. Mercedes and LH should have the professionalism to respect that decision and move on. Penalising NR is a ridiculous afterthought by his employers, as they have on numerous occasions reassured us the two drivers are free to race each other. Isn't that what they're paid to do after all? NR was fully entitled to be where he was, LH realised he was going to be passed, changed his line to squeeze NR who chose not to back out and on this occasion LH came off second best. Could easily have been NR. Hence why a decision of racing incident and no action. LH & Merc need to wise up if they are to retain any respect from F1 fans. Deal with the issues on the track, not in the media with another childish slanging match.
