F1 » F1: Vettel set for Red Bull swansong


thomps000:
Seakay: 3. Vettel is, without the aid of a superior car at best a very average driver. Agree/disagree?
Vettel did win in a Toro Rosso, or did you forget about that?
Actually no, as I was at Monza when it happened :-) Most seem to be opposing my view, why has Riccardo beaten the 4 times champion this season so comprehensively if he's so great then?

F1 » F1: Vettel set for Red Bull swansong


With Vettel being comprehensively beaten by Riccardo in his first year at Red Bull, I think this points to 3 things: 1. The Red Bull car of the previous 4 years was far superior to anything else out there. 2. Mark Webber was a very uncompetitive team mate (controversial I accept but can this really be argued considering how good he made Vettel look) 3. Vettel is, without the aid of a superior car at best a very average driver. I'm sure many will argue point 2, but logically and following the above through this has surely been proven true? Agree/disagree?

F1 » Caterham F1 will race in Abu Dhabi


What a farce. I have nothing against the team but really, as others have said, what is the point? There's no worthwhile time line to the team, it's been Caterham for what three years - not exactly of historical importance to the sport. They've scored no points, achieved nothing other than make up the numbers. What is more distasteful is that they're blowing another 2.5 million of begging money indulging themselves in what is almost certainly a 'Final send off' whilst countless small businesses and suppliers will be going unpaid due to their impending liquidation! What an atrocious state of affairs.

F1 » Wolff: Rule change requests ‘absurd’


A good defence by Toto but he's not really addressing the core concerns expressed by Ecclestone, Di Montezemolo, Newey et al that the technical restrictions are so severe that it is impacting on the 'show' which will ultimately drive fans away. I don't buy into this 'sour grapes' accusation by many after just two races, I genuinely believe that they are seeing the bigger picture of what the sport stands for and feel, like many onlookers do, that the roots of F1 are being severed. Sure the cars are efficient but they sound cr*p. Sure they've got plenty of torque but as Alonso has said, he doesn't even need a water bottle anymore as it's just not intense enough an experience in the cockpit any longer. And sure it IS a technological marvel that they can get these cars to run on batteries etc BUT it doesn't make for a spectacle. This ISN'T what F1 is all about and it will not be enough to maintain the sort of audience that the sport needs to survive. And that is the important point tha

F1 » Newey critical of new F1


mrbrownstone2007: I understand the need for F1 as a whole to become more environmentally efficient. The whole world is changing and if F1 needs to make changes to stay relevant then I support that. I just don't think that these particular changes are for the best. F1 is still a sport and the whole point of a sport,for me at least, is a little bit of escapism. To have something to look forward to at the end of a bad week at work or simply when things aren't going my way. I'd always look forward to the race on Sunday to cheer me up or make me happy. It doesn't need to be relevant to road cars, or use less than x amount of fuel per race, or save the lives of 57 endangered flower species to do that. I just want to see the best drivers in the world, in the fastest cars in the world, going toe to toe. And I don't want them to sound like my rusty Clio!!
Very succinctly put. You have expressed EXACTLY what 'the show' should be about and what makes you look forward to

F1 » Newey critical of new F1

Seakay: To all those that seem to think Formula 1 has changed for the better: I would genuinely like to hear good persuasive arguments.
Bet you a beer that you don't get one mate. At best you'll get - you're just jealous that your team aint winning- which kind of sums up the quality of thoughts that go through some heads. I'm also getting kind of fed up listening to commentators tell me how great everything is, they're trying really hard to convince us, I suppose it might work for those that don't possess a thought of their own.
lol I've learned in life that old people are resistive to change.
lol, guess you've not had too educated a life then my friend. Try reading the thread in a bit more detail, you may make more sense of it :-)
