F1 » Lotterer set to replace Kobayashi at Caterham


GuzziHero: Fun fact for those too young to remember. Michael Schumacher was a sports car driver before F1, not a dedicated single seater guy. Look how he turned out...
No one is denying Lotterer's pedigree - you don't win Le Mans 3 times without real talent. It's just the way Kobyashi was unceremoniously dumped, as well as the seemingly desperate measures Caterham are using that dismays so many fans of the team. Of course Lotterer would be crazy not to jump at the chance of an F1 drive - but Kobyashi deserves much better than this.

F1 » Maldonado keen for Grosjean to stay


Taz- Sadly, Lotus need Maldonado's PDVSA dollars, so there's little chance of him departing the scene any time soon. Another damning indictment on the state of play in F1. For sure there have always been well funded drivers in F1, but Maldonado is really rubbing other (more talented) drivers' noses in it. Hard to believe he's actually a race winner, given his total ineptness both before and after he won for Williams...

F1 » F1 driver of the year so far….. revealed


MikeLite: Why deluded? Hamilton started from the back in the last two races Through no fault of his own and battle through to a cpl Of podium positions! That is why people like to watch him race Much better to see a bit of excitement and overtaking than Boring processional races
Don't bother using reason, Mike. People hate Hamilton, no matter what. Just enjoy what he brings to racing, as all the other F1 fans do!

F1 » Parabolica gravel trap replaced at Monza


Firefly: I like tarmac runoffs. They provide better racing since making a gutsy move doesn't punish a driver as hard as with gravel traps.
I partly agree...However, surely that's the point - at least in some small way. Of course we don't want drivers hurt, but if they can go for a ballsy move without fear of a DNF, then it's not so ballsy, is it? Anyway, part of a driver's skill is being fast AND staying on the track. Car control as well as speed are what make F1 exciting, so if you remove the requirement for controlling the car (which is what these guys are supposed to be the best at doing), it doesn't exactly make for an exciting spectacle. I want to look at the drivers and think: 'I could NEVER do that!'

F1 » 2014 car ‘a laboratory’ for next year – Boullier


This sure has to be one of the saddest press releases I've ever read concerning the modern state of F1. Thanks Eric - I'm sure all the McLaren team sponsors, not to mention fans of the team and F1 in general are glad to know that you're fielding two laboratories on wheels instead of building proper race cars. Okay, so I'm pretty sure these comments have to be taken in context, but it's nevertheless a pretty damning indictment on the state of play these days. There's so much technology and money being wasted in modern F1 that even a powerhouse team like McLaren (well, at one time, at least) can't manage consistently decent results and must resort to basically giving up halfway through a GP season. This sport is truly going down the pan - I sure hope it's not too late to save it.
