F1 » Lewis Hamilton and Tony Stewart swap cars at Watkins Glen!


Usually I think these kind of things are corny, but I saw the show, and it was a lot of fun. Both drivers held plenty back, but that wasn't the point. It was a chance for each to get way outside of their comfort zones. Tony Stewart has his strengths and weaknesses, but he is a fantasic driver who as won in a wide variety of cars. If he had decided to give F-1 a try, he would have done it well. BTW, althought I don't follow NASCAR, I seem to remember hearing that Stewart lost a bit of weight during the off-season.

NASCAR » NASCAR drivers 'underrated', F1 drivers 'scared'


I'm an American. I've always prefered open wheel to stock cars, saloon cars, sports cars, or anything else with fenders, but I doubt driving a two ton car on skinny tires at high speeds is easy. Jimmy Clark competed in the Rockingham 500 in 1967. He started 24th out of 44, and was running 12th when the engine failed. He didn't need to be a snob about auto racing, and He was a better racing driver than anyone you've ever seen.

F1 » Coulthard: New teams saga 'irresponsible' and 'degrades' F1


Oh boy, another "never was" pundit kissing up to the powers that be. Why don't we just start a field of four with two Ferraris and two McLarens? That way, we'll be sure one or the other will always win, and the "Pinnacle of Motor Sport" (said with a booming deep voice and a slight echo) will continue to be a stale "good old boys" club. Hello to the newcomers. Best of luck to them.

F1 » Renault muse following Toyota out of F1


The fix we are in is due to the greed and avarice of the Gnome. You know the saying: "If you want loyalty, get a dog." A breakaway series isn't going to fix anything, because the factory teams will insist the series is run for their benefit. Currently, F-1 isn't about racing, it's about selling cars and tires. Honda, BMW, Toyota, etc. are involved in auto racing when they perceive it's good for business, not for the love of the sport. When perceptions change, they leave. What makes it worse is when series become dependent on the manufacturers and suppliers, and are "run as a business" and forget the fans. Bring back the Ken Tyrrells, and the sport will last forever.
