Face it, F1 is great on technology and very weak on wheel to wheel competition.
and therin lies the difference between the f1 world and the likes of Nascrap and Indy, the car of tomorrow ... was an embarrassment to be honest, they're just steel heaps of crap with huge engines and fuck all technology ... f1 is not just about the racing, it's about everything, including the technology. You should try it sometimes, excitement in f1 does not come from watching 3 rednecks take on another out because they don't like each other .... and of course there is the thought that they do race when it's wet, and as amazing as it might be to an American car fan, the cars do turn left and right, and not just left .... but the wheel to wheel racing does exist, if they were just going around in circles flat out F1 racing would be wheel to wheel all the time ... but then in the time of the romans Chariot races were also wheel to wheel, the common denominator ... they also went around and around in circles.... you need to start reading voices ... you know books .. those things with pages, words and sometimes pictures ... and get a grip on f1, it will change your outlook on everything .. including a new respect for the sport that has given us all the phenomenal safety features that keep us alive on the roads everyday ....

When that idiot tony george decided to run his own brand of indy racing he lost a hell of a lot of racing fans. F1 sucks and has always sucked, it is not fan friendley at all and the Indycar race teams thrived on fans being a part of their racing careers, Tony George is an idiot and will never amount to anything at all in my book, say what you want because I ain't comin back to see you animals tear down another good sport with your bullshit rhetorice anyway! Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeee

Voices in your head, I wouldn't doubt that for a minute, Speed interviewed Bernie on the grid yesterday and I just cringed, he's a real dumbass ..... but let's be honest as wierd as he is, he has taken F1 from being a pretty shitty show in the early 90's to being the most watched motor sports event in the world year after year, generating revenues Tony george could only dream of ... but I think on the subject of the nazi uniforms, you are confusing him with his mate Max Mosely, I think Bernie just wears the school girl outfits ...
Bob, actually we agree on more than you might think, I actually do watch some F1 and find Monaco as one of the better racing events of the year, no matter what venue is your favorite. I will give you the issue on revenue generated to F1, hands down, however I do not think that the amount of money makes for more competitive racing, nor for interesting TV. I do not think of F1 as my favorite form of motorsport, however, like scotch and rum, I guess it is an acquired taste. I have always been in awe of the technology and out and out ability of the modern F1 car, however, history has proven that ultimate technology, both in inovation and cost does not equate to the best competition. I am not all that much a NASCAR fan, as I actually enjoy amature roadracing, both two and four wheel and attend between 10 and 15 two and sometimes three day events per year. SCCA, WERE, CSS, Vintage and yes some NASCAR events (mostly local as I spot for a Rollin Thunder Modified Team) are more my cup of tea.

I guess it all goes back to the old school of thought, "In real football can you use your hands or just your feet, and head?"

So, I must feel that you think that the two Red Bull drivers are two rednecks that do not like each other?

hmmm that's funny the official District 9 website refers to them as PRAWNS, I suppose they're wrong too hey .. dumbass, as I have said you beaver beaters don't know your asses from your elbows ....

maybe you're right about me and ferrari, one thing I do know about Ferrari, Alonso is not in charge, in fact he's losing face by the minute .. par for the course, you can fool some of the people some of the time but not all the people all the time ... the hairy eye browed spaniard is a lying cheating clown, a great pretender and most certainly not fit to be mentioned in the same sentence as slightly above average drivers, never mind the greats like Schumie, Senna, Prost, and Fangio ... poor worshitters, you're entire world is crumbling, old 6/10ths is going backwards, even the old John Deere tractor he drove in 08 and 09 are beating the snot out of him ... must be the car, it's always the damned car with Alonso and his worhsitters ...
