Re: What manufacturer would you like to see in f1?

volkswagon group. or any other manufacturer really. but i don't want to see them own the entire team. i want them to join as engine builders only. clearly that is expensive, but not as expensive as owning the entire team. i would hope that just being an engine builder they would end up staying in th...

Re: The rumor refuses to die

vettel is under contract for two more seasons. imo there is no doubt he would consider going to ferrari in 2015 and ask newey to come with him. that doesn't mean he will go though. 2014 will be a very interesting year with the new regulations. 2015 could see many, many interesting changes in team dr...

Re: Turkey may be back in 2013.

i like the track in turkey and it would be a good track to have back. with the storm destruction in nj, i doubt the race happens even in 2014. this brings up a point about bernie. yes the man has done great things for the sport of f1. but tracks like spa and some of the older tracks do not have the ...

Re: Vettel's Accident vs Hulkenburgs

As others have previously said, stewards were inconsistent. i believe the "celebrity" former driver steward is a good idea. but f1 is asking for inconsistent judgements when they have a different one each race. everyone has an opinion and that doesn't mean one former driver thinks the sam...

Re: So, did the USA "fall in love with F1" today ?

Re: Unlimited Money or Resource Restriction

there will always be "have's" and "have not's" in any form of racing. no matter if you put a spending cap in place or not. it's far to late to stop the teams from building wind tunnels and spending huge amounts of money on them every year. part of racing has always been finding t...

Re: Coca Cola (Burn) enters F1 with Lotus.

Re: The myth of the slow Ferrari

The Ferrari isn't slow as in, woefully's off the pace. It's slow as in "Not fast enough to win the championship" which is what Ferrari aim and exist to do. That's the difference. i agree with the first part, but not with the second. it is fast enough to win the championship as it is only ...

i'm not saying the ferrari has been faster than the rb recently. just pointing out in my opinion the media "story" this year is how "slow" the ferrari is and how alonso has gotten finishes way above the cars capability. while to me, the lotus looks to have the same issues. can't ...

excellent race today, at least that is what i thought while watching it. then i read here how vettel was lucky, hamilton sabotaged again, blah blah blah. wow. enjoy the race, hating a f1 driver or team is just a monumental waste of life. very enjoyable race and championship battle, bring on texas !

Re: SPEED no longer broadcasting F1 beginning in 2013

will have to wait and see how next season is broadcast. obviously my main concern would be races not shown live. if nbc is taking over, they can charge more for advertising by tape delaying the race and showing it in the afternoon instead of showing it at 6:30 am. good for them, stinks for us F1 fan...

f1 cars have been evolving for ages. i don't think the bars they will put on the cockpit in 2014 will kill the sport. take some getting used too ? yes, but kill the sport, no, not for me. i believe they will look into the rear tire bumper like indy car installed this year too. of course there is dan...

the stated reason was listed partially as "his actions took out title contenders" as others have noted, i too find this ridiculous. as far as i can remember rg has not been penalized before, so for me this ban is to much. i don't like stewards involved in the race so much as they are now. ...
