Re: Constant helmet changes are driving me nuts!

By the time they get to F1, they've been wearing helmets for years. Yes, but they could be in F1 for 10 years or more. Everything changes once they get to F1. New personal sponsors, etc. Is there no other way to identify a driver? Well, the helmet is the only bit we see when they're driving. Yes, t...

Frank Williams is unwell.

Williams have released a statement to say he's in hospital but in a stable condition. No more details given.

Let's hope he's going to be OK.

Re: Alonso's Renault R25 2005 V-10 today at Abu Dhabi

I think it's important to note that some of us wishing for screaming V10s back are not wanting races to be unbearably loud. You can have high revving, exciting sounding engines that are suitably silenced to allow for a lack of earplugs. It's about tone. LIke supercars on the road. Some sound far bet...

Maybe there needs to be another way to identify the driver in the car more easily. I don't think it's reasonable to expect a driver to get a helmet designed on day 1 and keep it forever.
By the time they get to F1, they've been wearing helmets for years.

Very little, but my point was that in the two F2 races, there were passes without the need for DRS, despite all the DRS enabled passing. Of course aero wake existed before the introduction of the wings! That's precisely what the drivers exploited in the 1960s (and earlier) on long straights. What d...

At least two people saying how good the race was, when in actual fact it was a farce.

The comedy set the stage for some good racing, but don't forget this was essentially a "novelty race".

Bahrain layout choice.

So, although I enjoy the normal layout used in Bahrain, I would personally like to see the outer circuit used next year as it's great to watch and adds variety to the sport. If only one race is to happen in Bahrain, which circuit layout would you want to be used?
