FE » Formula E unveils new headquarters


I can accept Formula E whole-heartedly. It CAN be the pinnacle of electric motorsport. There is nothing wrong with green. There is nothing wrong with electric propulsion. In fact, I can find it exciting if it is a showcase of technology. But, As Taipan has mentioned, Formula One should be its own separate show. It should be the epitome of internal combustion engine racing. NO electricity at all! No green. It is our ONE dirty sport, but come on, it ain't all that dirty is it? A friend of mine pointed out that Bernie Ecclestone's daughter's house in Los Angeles pollutes more than all the F1 cars at a race. Doesn't it have its own bowling alley? It is the most expensive home in the USA. So whats the point?

F1 » Rosberg: 'Megaphone exhaust' made no change


This megaphone is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen in motorsport. F1 has become a mockery of its once great former self. I think I'm just about through. I think I'm just going to wait until September when Formula E fires up. At least THAT is the pinnacle of something. The pinnacle of electric powered vehicles that is. What has F1 become? The pinnacle of hybrid vehicles? WTF? Does anyone other than the bean counters at the car companies get excited about something like that? Lately I've even been looking into "410 sprints" here in the USA. They're 410 cubic inches or about 6.7L and they race on dirt oval tracks. They are closer to what F1 was 10 years ago than what F1 is today. They weigh about the same as the old F1 cars and have similar power to the old F1 cars. And the are about 10 times more exciting than the current vacuum cleaners with megaphones we are seeing. It guts me to see what they've done to F1.
