Well there maybe some hope for F1 afterall as the race weekend shows that the traditional things in F1 are still alive - controversy over qualifying, protests between drivers, complaints about the rules, allegations about dirty tactics, questionable decisions by the stewards, and plenty of other general nonsenseAll we need now are some competitive cars!Meanwhile congrats to Hamilton
351. Hell of a race today between the Ferraris and Red Bulls! Ferrari have a lot of work to do to maintain their #2 constructor standing. That Mercedes have had the advantage over the last couple of years (driver squabbles aside) might evaporate with new rules next year - wider tires are going to make a huge difference. F1 is forever changing as truly on the bleeding-edge of automotive technology.
Thats fine guys. I'm obviously wrong as to what constitutes an exciting F1 race nowadays. Im a dinosaur I know but Im not the only person who is deciding to switch off on Sundays (my heart bleeds even writing that) the facts are there for all to see.If you get worked up over a half baked challenge for 5th place from a past his best Ferrari driver, then I'm glad I still have past memories to recall
Yay, lewis gets in front of rosberg.Oh, boring race now.....Max can't defend without weaving :(Qualifying rules need sorting out or at least their applicationRos home race next wknd. I thought Monaco had been already. Or is Finland back on the calendar?Well done to Brit LH (living in Monaco for tax convenience). 20% saving? They should pay the monoaco anthem every fifth race :)
@339 glad you do your own washing be careful of those string vest, most races are boring at the front but it is not always about who wins but the battles behindas well good race from mv and kr
Further to 349. Again, Rosberg not hitting Hamilton on the first corner and his jovial mood at the winner's room and on the podium must mean that Wolff wrote clauses into Rosberg's contract with financial penalties to result from a repeat of the litany of stupidity displayed over the last year: hitting Hamilton several times, 10 second penalties in recent races and his gloomy mood on the podium?
thought that rosbergs pole yesterday was a bit suss but that's the way it goes ,it was always going to be who got to the first corner in front on this track was going to win . just glad it was hamilton
This radio message penalty is getting farcical. It was introduced re pressure from the gnome because Rosberg was persistantly asking his engineer how and where LH was faster than him with a view to copying him which was contrary to the idea that the driver should use his skill to drive the car. JB was today penalised for asking advice re his brakes not working a different matter entirely
Good that Rosberg, beaten to the first corner today by Hamilton, both boxed by the Red Bulls, did not elect to crash into Hamilton as he has done several times in their track time together - new contract = restraint from stupidity? Let us hope Rosberg can keep this up?
It's exactly like I said earlier: Rosberg got pole but he wouldn't convert it to a win because he crumbles under LH pressure. He always do that. It's great for LH to have surged ahead by six points after trailing by 43 points at one stage. The future looks even brighter. I wish NR can find an extra gear somewhere to mount a useful challenge.
If Stoffel does replace Haryanto at Manor how interesting will that battle be? And what do we call him? SVD? Sounds like an STD ;-)
Deserved win for LH after yesterday's misfortune in qualifying
Thenestofvipers:At least you got lots of attention now, so that's not boring, or not?Anyway your remark shows the problem of viewers nowadays. It's a bit like current films, no story, but lots of special effects, blood and fire."Epic battles"? That's for old guys.I would say go back finding some Pokemons. :D
Viper. Well thats me sold. Sign me up!..............................does this mean we should stop watching?
#342. The sad thing is, that you are actually asking me to explain.
Oh really, one comment about a tight battle for position between two drivers points to everything thats wrong with f1. Please do elaborate. Illuminate us with your insight.
#340 'Personally I enjoyed the MV v KR battle'....and that one statement sums up the problems with modern F1 today. Thank you for highlighting it.
