F1 » F1 doesn't need Italy, claims Ecclestone


Bernie keeps on saying we need to find out what is wrong with F1. And we need to fix it. The "thing" that is wrong is Bernie and the hangers on who make a bundle out of the sport, but have no real feeling for it. Monza, and Silverstone, and Spa, and Paul Ricard (?), are all part of the fabric that F1 was, and is made of. And by trying to substitute some race in the desert, with Arab oil money, in a country that uses slave labour to build and run there infrastructures. Then that is the problem with F1 !!!

MotoGP » Circuit of Wales hit as government cannot underwrite project


Right at the beginning of this saga, it was said all the financial "stakeholders" were on board, and all the deals had been signed. Then we hear that no agreements were done with the appropriate authorities to even build. Then a lot of other permissions were not granted, and now we find out the major stake holder is the Welsh Government. I smell bad planning and organisation here, and said so when the project was first launched. Just the thought of about 100m pounds to sort out the surrounding infrastructure of roads and local rail was not going to happen. Are the organisers maybe Nigerian backed .........???

FE » Formula E unveils driverless Roborace race car


People like and watch Formula E ????? I really didn't know that. A series that they have to change cars because they have run out of Batteries, and they weren't using Duracell ???? This is why F1 is in trouble, the powers are just not tuned in to real enthusiastic fans, Bernie wants Rolex wearing, Margaux or Rothschild sipping, know nothings following F1. Can you imagine then sitting at Stowe, with their picnick blankets ??? Formula One is lost if these people are running the sport !!!!

F1 » Alonso: We need to make F1 a real man’s sport


Twice last year, I turned off the TV during a race. That would never have happened any time in the 40 years I have been watching F1 in the past. We need cars that are 550 kg, 3.0 Lt N/A, big wide wheels, that last the entire race, fueled for a full race of 2 hours, and take off some of the aero. And driven by drivers who get paid for their services. Then we will have racing.

F1 » Radio restrictions a step back too far F1 – Horner


The controlling of team/car communications is absolutely stupid, in such a technological sport, especially a TEAM sport, where strategy is so important, and split second decisions make or break a race. The F1 management want a driver to pitch up with his car on a tailor, with no crew, and race each other. I thought all the idiots left when Max Mosley was thrown out, seems not.. STUPID decision !!!!
