Re: The future of F1.

Until the day there is a cell phone on the market with a battery that doesn’t need to be charged every single day I won’t believe that f1 is anywhere close to being fully electric. Battery evolution has been going too slowly. The current f1 cars aren’t the best sounding but they are not annoying to...

Re: Appropriate penalty for Max's actions?

F1 gets it's first bit of proper driver attitude since the 1970s so F1 punishes it! Guess that's the world we live in. 90's I'd say when Senna chinned Eddie or when Schumacher tried to get DC. F1 has chosen to punish the inocent party, Ocon, waaaaaay more harshly than violent brat Max. Go figure th...
