F1 » Maldonado: Australia GP won't be fair gauge on Lotus

I think the main problem with Maldonado is that has always been very inconsistant. Take a look at his career on wiki. Every season he has raced, he has had some good results punching above his weight, but he has also had terrible results were he either crashes out or is just slow. Most drivers improve over time but looking at his record I think he will continue to be inconsistant. Yes he did win a race in 2012 but he then failed to score a single point in the next 9 races.

FE » Buenos Aires ePrix - Free practice results (1)

LaughingGas: Does anyone watch this ??
I have seen all the races so far. I think the racing has been entertaining. The cars are not quite fast enough yet which shows on some of the helicopter coverage. Next year the cars will be manufactered by the teams so we could see a dramatic increase in performance. The down sides for me are the gimmicky things like the 'Fanboost' I think this is a stupid idea, also Dario Francitti's commentary is underwhelming, his voice does not convey excitement and he doesn't even raise his voice when cars are flying through the air.

F1 » Mallya: Focus should not be on survival

Also The constructors title could be decided a lot earlier if there is a dominant team. This would lead to a lot of seasons where teams give up developing thier car and putting all their efforts in to next years car. I cannot beleive that there is not a better alternative to this? There has to be a way to limit the spending of the big teams? Moves like banning tyre warmers to save £10,000 a season is pathetic. The difference in budget between Red Bull/Mercedes and Marussia/Caterham is at least £150m. People moan about the backmarkers always being off the pace, give Marrusia 150m and see what happens! Any body got any ideas how to enforce the budget cap?

F1 » Mallya: Focus should not be on survival

I have a few problems with the 3 car idea. Nobody wants to see each step of the podium taken up by the same constructor. There would be no chance for any underdog podiums. Remember the media buzz when Perez nearly beat Alonso to the win in a Sauber? Or Kobayashi getting a podium in Japan, the audience reaction was incredible. there would be a lot of artificial order changing in the race due to diffierent strategies, this would make it hard to follow. How are they going to fit 3 cars in the garage? Once you remove the struggling teams, surely the slowest of whoever remains then becomes the new target? The whole dynamic of the team mate wars becomes convoluted if you have three drivers.
