I meant no disrespect, I think all F1 fans on this site are passionate about the sport, but you might be taking it a little far.

Re: Italian TV fans have it worse than the British.

What's worse, really early or late Sunday race.

As I am starting off the day anticipating watching one of the few races us in the America's get to watch at a normal Sunday time. I feel for my European brethren who created the sport we so love. So what is worse, a Sunday race that starts at 5am, or a race that starts at 10pm Sunday night? Of cours...

Re: Theoretical racing cars you'd love to see

Building most of these cars are all theoretical as there performance is simply beyond what a human occupant can handle.

Re: Nico has accepted 2nd already against Hamilton...

Once Ferrari get within striking distance (and there close already) in the Constructors Championship, team orders will most certainly come into play. Even over here in the colonies, where most people don't even know what F1 is, Mercedes is touting the championship in advertisements.

WEC Silverstone vs China GP

The Silverstone WEC race for me was far more enjoyable than the Chinese GP. The LMP1's were lapping as fast as the bottom 3rd of the 2014 British GP field. The technology of the LMP1's is on par with or better than F1, and you get to see 3 other class' of beautiful auto's. But the racing was just fa...

Motorsport is and always be a very dangerous sport, and the march to safety must always be priority number one. Prayers to all that are involved, but we as fans know that this can always happen. If it were easy, it would be called Snowboarding.

Re: The TV Presentation, a problem?

They had a camera angle at the USGP last year that showed the violent ability of the cars to change directions. Matchett and Hobbs (US broadcast team for NBC Sports) both agreed how great it was, and they never used it again, for the rest of the weekend.

Re: Ferrari Closing in to Striking Distance

This just shows that you never know what works and what doesn't, no amount of planning can guarantee success. Mclaren should always dominate, they have the resources and the best factory, but Sauber is schooling them. But this is why we run the race, not just talk about it.

Re: If not for the McLaren call-up. Mags would have gone Ind

Once you go to Indy car, you will never be taken seriously again in F1. Villeneuve is the only one who has done it in 20+ years, and it was in a Williams, the best car on the grid. Remember Michael Andretti's season, or lack there of.

Re: Bernie E's Rule Proposal

I fell in love with F1 because of the purity of the sport, something American racing no longer has. This trying to script excitement is wrong, and will never work. It's too easy to see, just watch any NASCAR race, it's not quite WWF (fake/ scripted wrestling) but it's not far off.
