F1 » Lotus looking long term with Raikkonen replacement

Ooohh...the intrigues and politics of F1... But I don't understand it. How can this team be struggling with finances? I thought they were there or thereabouts with Kimi and the WDC until the last 3 or 4 races last season? Are they struggling to find sponsors and investors? It would be a shame if they could not sign Hulk and have to go with some "pay driver" with a rich daddy from Mexico or somewhere

F1 » FIA reveals 22 dates for F1 2014

I don't know why but I just love tracks that include very long straights where I can feel the true grunt of an F1 car, with every engine nut and bolt working at its optimum! So to speak :-) I know it's all carbon fibre these days :-) Knowing that this is the fastest that a land vehicle can travel in forward motion holds a certain fascination for me - well except for those specially built engines that break the time barrier in the desert. I also liked watching the drivers going through those slow corners preceding the straight, knowing that they were probably just itching to get on the gas and nail the accelerator at the earliest opportunity for the maximum lap time!!

F1 » F1 2013 POLL: Is it time to stop booing Sebastian Vettel?

Regarding Newey's dominance, what may be baffling to neutrals out there is that he WAS in F1 in the years that Ross Brawn and Ferrari dominated - and he WAS in F1 in the years that Renault won the titles back to back with Alonso. And those technical personnel (e.g. Bob Bell, Aldo Costa, Rory Byrne, Pat Fry, etc) are still in F1 and competing against him. Have they simply "lost their touch"?

F1 » F1 2013 POLL: Is it time to stop booing Sebastian Vettel?

Is it possible they are booing the "sheer dominance" and not the driver? I tend to think that F1 fans are generally technically astute...even the younger generation of fans. They want to see battles of attrition on track. Competition. It's not Seb's fault. He is a great driver, with a great package developed around him. Like many have said, it is really up to the opposition to step up and compete.

F1 » Hamilton: Vettel en-route to the title

Purely on the basis of the laws of Physics, is it possible that if Ferrari can qualify Alonso second to Vettel on the grid and he deploys that devastating launch control, he can jump Vettel in the first few corners the way Rosberg was unable to do on Sunday? And if that happens, does Alonso and the Ferrari have the race pace to keep Vettel behind and give him a battle of attrition? Or will Vettel just overtake him and disappear as usual? This is not an anti-Vettel post, just an F1 fan's wish. We all know that Vettel is probably going to win the WDC again this year, but this is a question for the neutrals on the site, who want to see one or two more "all-out battles" before the end of the season. Vettel running and hiding in every race is frankly, more boring. And Alonso seems to be the only one keeping him honest. Kimi, Lewis, Webber and Rosberg are not stepping up to the plate consistently enough to give neutral F1 fans the real battles they want to see!

F1 » Massa: I’m not going to make up the numbers

In all honesty, I swear some of the guys on this board would do a better job of handling some of these F1 drivers, than the drivel that they are constantly encouraged to come out with by the million-dollar PR companies they hire to handle their affairs and tell them what lines to feed to the press!! Before him, Rubens spouted similar lines for months after leaving"I am not in F1 to make up the numbers and since I have now left Ferrari, I am going to find a midfield team to help me win the WDC!! LOL

F1 » Massa expects Ferrari 'collision'

But the key question is why, richard. WHY?? OK, let me try this again.... Felipe knew about Ferrari's driver policy from day one before he signed the contract. So did Ferdi. But WHY do you think di Monti ordered Felipe to help Alonso - and not the other way around? Get it?? No doubt you will respond that it's only because of Santander's money - but I beg to differ. And I also differ because Felipe was already a number 2 to the other two drivers he worked with, before Alonso arrived!!! Spot the consistency?
