Re: 3 car teams - can it work?

I don't know if this has been posted already but it's quite telling. Basically Bernie needs at least 20 cars to be fielded to obligate the 100 year commercial rights deal, or the fia could regain control.

Re: Driver of the 2014 Singapore Grand Prix Race

Was it risky? Lewis himself acknowledged that it was. Did it work out? He came through unscathed and won the race. It's done now. What is the big problem? Because it's Hamilton. Like someone said earlier, he passed Vettel in a drs overtaking zone, and made no contact with Seb or the wall. The notio...

Re: Top 10 F1 Power Rankings from the Bleacher Report

Over the last 6 races? I agree with the top 2, but you could make a case for reversing them. And the same for 3&4. Alonso's had a bit of a poor patch by his standards. Could've been penalised in Hungary for cutting the chicane, Spa wasn't so great (lucky not to be penalised again), Monza was sho...

Re: Did you look at Nico Rosberg as a future world champion

Yes. From China 2012 he showed he could control a race from the front comfortably. I think it was q2 in Brazil 2011 where he showed what he could do in qualifying. His main flaws are more evident when he has some overtaking to do. Overcautious in attack, and quite aggressive in defence. I do sometim...

I voted no. There are too many variables to go down this route. You could say the same for all drivers; if Alonso swaps with Hamilton and gets beat by Rosberg, does that mean he's lost his credibility?
