Indycar - Double Points for Final Race???

Hi All Just wondering what the Indycar fans on the board think about dishing out double points for the final race. I am a HUGE Indycar fan, but I really don't like the double-points thing. I know it's just to keep things interesting in the final race but it just seems to cheapen the whole thing for ...

Re: Anyone have any radical ideas to fix F1?

Sorry to dig up an old-ish thread.. I realise this would never happen but I'd like to go to an old-fashioned clutch pedal and gearstick. Lots of opportunities for missing gears and a huge endurance / concentration challenge. At least get rid of the power steering. They took ABS etc away so you never...

Re: Should Bottas contract be extended?

Are you suggesting that you have a complete inability to communicate via the written word that excuses your false accusations? I seem to recall Bottas being told that he was being given two races to alleviate Mercedes management's concerns that he hasn't delivered at the level expected of someone w...

Re: What does Hamilton have to do to become an all time grea

I think it's important to note that nearly all of Hamilton's WDC's have come in the turbo-hybrid era. In this era all you really have to do to win the WDC is beat the guy in the other Merc. How many of the current grid would beat Bottas in the same car? 40-70% of them? Are they All-Time Greats as w...

Re: Which team will be strongest at each remaining circuit:

Merc everywhere but Monza and possibly Spa.

Their car is miles ahead of everyone else's and has been for years.

Re: It's not the car, it's Lewis!

[quote=the fastest car is not necessarily the best car.[/quote] This is so very true. Thrust SSC has a nice high top speed but probably wouldn't be very quick round an F1 circuit. In my opinion no-one has yet got close to Merc as the best all-around car in the Turbo-Hybrid era. Had Vettel gone to Me...

Re: It's not the car, it's Lewis!

If you're saying "It's not the car", then you are saying that Bottas is a better / faster driver than Seb, Max, Charles, and everyone else on the grid, as he is ahead of them all in the WDC.

This just seems ridiculous to me.
