It’s been on the cards for years. ICE is a dying engine tech, hybrid is a transitional tech. Once the majority of road car sales are electric Renault and Merc will pull out to.
F1 is dead, long live Formula E!
This is the beginning of the end for F1 as we know it. The same commercial pressures apply to Renault and Mercedes, they will also pull out soon, leaving Ferrari as the only manufacturer. A revision to the current […]

This could be a big opportunity for Perez. Verstappen starting on Mediums + RB twitchy backend, Norris’s Maclaren didn’t have good race pace in practice, Albon hasn’t had much experience in the car. Tracing Point […]

I like it. The rear v wing won’t be as efficient as a horizontal wing but it looks great and the treatment of the front wheel covers is much better than last years. Even the halo looks OK – ish.
Shaken not stirred commented on the post, Should F1 try the proposed new aggregate qualifying format? 5 years, 6 months ago
The problems with F1 are not on Saturday, they’re on Sunday. This whole qualifying debacle is a distraction from the real issues the sport has. They wasted a meeting today which should have decided to go back to […]

I care. And I suspect Merc, Ferrari, Renault and Honda will care after all their investment in the hybrids. It’s probably just a bargaining ploy by Bernie and CVC to get the engine suppliers to reduce the cost […]
Currently the forecast is for dry conditions on Saturday with a high of 23C, and possibly showers during the race on Sunday with a high of 19C. So maybe we get a race mixed up by a bit of moisture on the track. […]
I agree with you about refuelling and tyre wars, they lead to processional races. The survey was carried out at the beginning of the debate about refuelling, if it were carried out now that the negatives of the […]
Shaken not stirred commented on the post, Forget surveys, here's what F1 can learn from Monaco 6 years, 4 months ago
Many comments on F1fanatic like Keith call for DRS to be abandoned, but this alone would make the overtaking problem worse. The only solution is to allow ground effect to allow following cars to get closer and to […]
The survey shows what interests the drivers, lots of questions about sponsors, branding, etc, none about aero, few about other technical issues. I think this survey is not really about the fans opinions of the […]
Good points. But also ask yourself, if you were a large corporate would you invest in F1 when the brand is soiled thanks to the way it’s run, and the bad publicity around BE in the last few years? F1 is tainted […]
Without new engines it would be Formula Ferrari. And the new engines are technologically amazing and will evolve further in next few years.
With respect to the noise level issue, if BE […]
Mercedes’ margin over the others on race day was close to the advantage they had in testing. This suggests that Ferrari et al haven’t made significant performance gains since testing. Instead the track and […]
