frood19 commented on the post, Not just a fans' pipe dream: Why live F1 should return to free TV 5 days, 17 hours ago
The idea that the big pay TV deals benefit grass roots in other sports is arguable at best. Take cricket as an example – would they trade the huge potential fanbase they squandered in the mid-2000s for what they […]
frood19 commented on the post, Vettel is getting to grips with Aston Martin "a bit slower than I would like" 1 week ago
The reason FLAP is not interesting (and therefore a poor concept because of its potential to unduly influence the title race) is symptomatic of many of the sport’s other problems – it quickly became predictable […]

@bullmello +1 from me on both points. Qualifying ain’t broke, please stop trying to fix it. Fix the myriad other problems that are ruining the sport (I know my opinions are solely mine but as a fan of F1 since […]
I was thinking the same. Imagine if turkey had been more grippy too last year, that would have been far less exciting.
@skipgamer we shouldn’t need to go back through the races to find good DRS passes. As fans of the sport, we should recall them. I can’t remember any exciting DRS assisted pass. And many of the best races over the […]

@robbie will it be a more exciting way to qualify, you ask. Well, for me this is a question that didn’t need asking because the current format is routinely excellent and often a highpoint of the weekend. […]

Do you know who lewis hamilton is?
@jerejj yes, sorry, I meant to say “they still couldn’t pass with DRS”. Imagine how bad it would be with that chicane just after the pit entry. The pre-1995 layout might be a bit better, as they would at least be […]
I hate to say imola sucks because it was kind of cool to watch, the classic corners and narrow track and (thank you god) gravel and grass. But I do despise DRS because it’s so contrived and ruins the possibility […]
@roger-ayles well put, DRS sucks. It’s ruining the whole race for me. Honestly, I’d rather see the trulli trains of years past than these contrived motorway passes. There is literally no defensive driving anymore, […]
Russell definitely didn’t cover himself in glory today and certainly not the way to impress Mercedes. Somehow I think it will also deflect attention away from bottas’s dreadful weekend.
I found it an ok race, […]

@spencer good point, we’re not comparing like with like. I’m sure the teams have clawed ball some downforce but this track is not a fair way to judge it. However, stuff like wind direction air and track […]

You have to wonder where Albon would have been on that grid. On a good day, I reckon he’d make the front row but he never had very many good days.
@stefmeister I couldn’t agree more. I think 16/17 races is the perfect amount because it allows variety in the calendar and stops the feeling of overkill that we get now. A shorter championship is also more likely […]
@mr-neese I’d like to see that but it could be unsafe. Still, the only way to find out is to find out. This is why non-championship races are needed – we’d be able to experiment without affecting the title race. […]
I’m not sure if anyone else is getting this strange behaviour on the site lately, but it’s become really irritating in the last couple of days. I have long been a paying member (several years) and I am keen to support the site, as well as despising intrusive adverts on websites.
I am definitely logged in but I keep seeing one popup video ad that…[Read more]
frood19 commented on the post, Vettel feeling "not at home in the car yet" after tough weekend 1 month, 1 week ago
I presume this is sarcastic. You can’t luck in to 4 titles. It’s a serious indictment of the sport to suggest you can luck in to a title at all. Vettel was the class of the field in 2011, 2013 and for large parts […]
I am very disappointed by these proposals. Firstly, did we really need to change Albert park? It tends to provide exciting racing already, it looks cool and different, and it presents an unusual challenge for car […]
@bascb I think they could have some gravel, even with the long loop i.e. either side of the track. Besides, Bahrain is not short of cash so I think they absolutely could cut the tarmac away for the grand prix and […]
