F1 » Booth and Lowdon set to leave Manor


Russell13: This is such a shame, as sunny says booth and lowden are the beating heart of this team, booth was the original founder in 1990 and it seems ridiculous he has been asked to leave now, especially after all the effort he and lowdon put in to saving the team. This is not good for manor, and will sertainly lose fans due to it.
I don't have the F1 history knowledge...what was the name of Manor when they began?

F1 » Force India confirms ‘exciting’ Aston Martin talks


mrfill:
JJ9871011: I thought Williams was the Merc B team. I am not sure what Aston get out of this. It is not like they are designing the car. Maybe it will have "Powered by Aston Martin" instead of Merc I guess.
Well, Christian Wolff does still have some financial interest in Williams (25% I believe) But Mercedes owns at least 5% of Aston Martin. The PUs can be rebranded but will still be the same. Williams are independent and have been around for ages. FI are new boys on the block and have always been struggling for cash, so much more pliable. Aston Martin get exposure and 'increased brand value' which MB would benefit from, although it would hardly be much of a surprise if they splashed a bit more cash and increased their holding. Rather like what VW did with Lambourghini.
Interesting. So, the Aston Martin PUs would simply be MB PUs with AM emblems? /nosaracsm

F1 » F1: Kate Walker: And so it ends


The current guiding principle in F1 seems to be to "Save the "Planet". Clearly a matter of proportion - the effect the racing season has on Mother Gaia is so negligible as to be meaningless, less than a grain of sand in the Sahara. And it galls me that they've turned F1 into "NASCAR without fenders" as GB says with "Farting Duck" power units as described by Taipan. The folk running the show have lost their objectivity and are too close to the spectacle to see their effects of their decisions on the sport and the fan. Casual consensus shows the effect is clearly negative. Imagine - you can now hear the tires squealing over the engine noise! I'm sorry F1 is in such a bad state, I hope they repair it as it's taken a sad turn.

F1 » F1: Alonso explains Q1 outburst


This makes me nervous for Seb. Ferrari frequently seems to have their heads up there proverbial *sses when it comes to fielding their cars on race weekend. Almost like everyone in their respective roles are novices and not quite ready for prime time. In this era, they are living on their past laurels, but as the saying goes "what have you done for me lately?".
