  • @Rodney – My apologies, I should have been clearer, in the sense that while better financial management could have averted the current disaster, what I meant was what BE did in the early days. Here, I am referring to the 1980s, when the business-oriented mindset bought in TV broadcasting rights and sponsorship deals, which actually allowed F1 to…[Read more]

  • LeMans, and the WEC as a whole, is pretty amazing; furthermore, nearly all of the technologies there, is transferable to road cars and sports cars; its a wonder that it is not bigger.

  • I would love to follow WEC; I love LeMans and its application to real-life road-going technology but the races are somewhat long for TV viewers: average of 6 hours

  • What other series for open-wheel racing would you watch, if F1 implodes? IndyCar? Formula Renault? International Formula Masters?

    To be fair, BE has done an amazing job from a business perspective, with TV broadcasting rights, the bringing in of corporate sponsors and turning it into an sort of “elitist” event with the paddock club; all this has…[Read more]

    I am in my late 20s, i am not sure if i am part of Gen Y or not, but I have been following F1 since 2009 since it came to Singapore. In any case, I used to follow football leagues, we have a local football league, where I live, but when the number of teams in the league started…[Read more]
