Manufacturers bring their own agenda and the only loyalty is to their investors. If the bean counters at Mercedes, Renault, et al calculated that they could sell more cars by dropping F1 (or any series […]
Mike commented on the post, "Streaming is done for me": Formula E drivers respond to Abt's suspension 1 year, 4 months ago
Without any real stakes, there are inevitably going to be participants that don’t take it seriously. I can’t really blame them, professional drivers have not spent the entirety of their teenage and adult lives […]
Mike commented on the post, The 'Ferrari first' obstacle to F1's urgent drive to slash costs 1 year, 5 months ago
Ferrari should walk away… call it a trial separation if you must. F1 is a hollow shell of its former self and both F1 and Ferrari need to figure how to move forward free of the current comprimised entanglements.
Mike commented on the post, Ganassi fires NASCAR driver Larson over racial slur during simrace 1 year, 6 months ago
He said the un-sayable (unless you’re a hip hop artist).
Hopefully the world can get through the panic phase and get to a point where preventative measures, transmission, treatment, etc. is better understood so appropriate actions can be taken rather than all the […]
Mike commented on the post, Why Hamilton's lack of a knighthood should come as no surprise 1 year, 9 months ago
I don’t see why not. In this day and age, with all the interest in ‘fairness’ and ‘leveling the playing field’, all British citizens should be able to apply for and receive knighthood. Who wouldn’t want to be […]
Mike commented on the post, Carlos Sainz Jnr nailed the F1 qualifying argument 2 years ago
Not that I’m paying much attention this season beyond checking post-race results here on racefans.net… qualifying is the one thing that is actually compelling (as much as it can be) in the current generation […]
Mike commented on the post, What Carey's latest take on the state of Formula 1 told us 2 years, 2 months ago
There’s not much here to hang a disillusioned fan’s hat on unfortunately.
Mike commented on the post, Hamilton: Blame F1 bosses, not drivers, for "boring" races 2 years, 3 months ago
Obviously I’m not missing anything this season… first season in more than a decade that I’ve zero interest in watching (made it through 3/4 of the season or so last year). I content with checking the results […]
Mike commented on the post, Vettel penalty hands Hamilton Canadian Grand Prix victory 2 years, 4 months ago
I threw in the towel after four races this season. Sad state of affairs. I prefer my (pre-hybrid era) memories to the current state of F1.
Mike commented on the post, China showed point for fastest lap "really works" – Brawn 2 years, 6 months ago
So the net is ‘fastest lap point makes otherwise boring, uninspired races acceptable’.
Mike commented on the post, F1 enlists "A-list celebrities" for new entertainment offering 2 years, 6 months ago
I guess it remains to be seen whether Liberty is building F1’s coffin or simply nailing it shut at this point.
Mike commented on the post, Perez: Stroll a tougher team mate than Ocon on race pace 2 years, 6 months ago
That’s the first thing that came to my mind, not to mention taking a free shot at Ocon while he’s sitting on the sidelines.
Mike commented on the post, Ecclestone reveals 'breakaway' talk with two F1 team bosses 2 years, 6 months ago
Naturally Aspirated… 3.0 L V10… 19,000 RPM…
They say you can’t go home again, but I sure wish someone would at least try.
Of course it makes sense for them to do so to keep the team focused, but it doesn’t make sense that the F1 ‘media’ reprints it like it is somehow true.
Mike commented on the post, Analysis: Why F1 is unlikely to attract new teams soon 2 years, 6 months ago
Electric power is great for general transportation where it makes sense, but so far it doesn’t seem to translate well to mainstream motorsport. Of course I’d say the same thing about F1’s ‘hybrid’ formula, but […]
Mike commented on the post, F1 approves plan to award a point for fastest lap in 2019 2 years, 7 months ago
The next logical step would be to award a bonus point for an on-track pass.
Mike commented on the post, Hamilton suspects Ferrari began 2019 car earlier than Mercedes 2 years, 7 months ago
Lewis constantly positioning Merc as an underdog is getting rather tiresome.
Mike commented on the post, Ferrari quietly drops 'Mission Winnow' from team name 2 years, 7 months ago
Why doesn’t PMI just buy one of the smaller sugary drinks companies and use that as a token branding and marketing vehicle?
Mike commented on the post, First trailer for new Netflix F1 series "Drive to Survive" revealed 2 years, 7 months ago
They should have dubbed in audio from the V8s or V10s.
