This thread has a big response and F1 is still considered as a motor racing subject, IMHO it is no longer about motor racing, it is more like a procession of high tech machines on a "follow my Leader" platform, computer control and driver advisory contact etc,.
The interest seems to have slipped to the personality of the drivers, and tyre technology, how much fuel, track temperature etc, it is no longer motor car racing, where is the enjoyment we had in the 70's up to the 90's with real racing, overtaking etc? Bernie Eccleston could see this and once said, "we need to spray the track with water", to bring the driver skills back and some real racing.
Like many sports money and technology has spoiled the sport. Herbie.
Liberty Media may well be selling...
^ here we go again !
Last thing F1 needs is Bernie back!!!!!!
Unless it's Bernie Winters.
With the dog, what was it’s name, Mr Schnozzle or something?
Schnorbitz, the St Bernard.
To be honest, I only liked him cos of Schnorbitz!
That’s the one guy, me too. His brother Mike was pathetic too
Don't remember him...
Mike and Bernie Winters. I remember these so called comedians well. As funny as herpes.
So we're agreed... it was all about Schnorbitz?
Not had herpes, so wouldn't know meself (gulp emoji)
HerbieMercman's summary is right on the button - F1 is no longer a pure sport. It's a shambles.
Bring back tyres that last the distance driven hard (only 200 miles after all!), give the guys plenty of fuel, ban ship to shore communications, and let the drivers fiddle with their own in-car settings while they fight it out.
300km / 186 miles + 1 lap or 2 hours
Good to see that Kubica has the number 88 on his Williams.
It'll save confusion when he flips it.
Hamilton will win the championship again.
Riccardo will wish he stayed at Red Bull.
Vercrashem will crash within the first two races.
Separate names with a comma.
