  1. It's all really interesting. I'm glad Kimi isn't retiring, but I still rather see him at Ferrari. I really hope Leclerc is ready, its going to be a great season.  The other rumor is that Kimi is going to be an owner at Sauber, so that could be really interesting. 
  2. It's an easy and relatively cost effective way to ensure you're never without an at least halfway decent driver. It keeps options open for the team.  Take McLaren right now. Their faces with having to replace Alonso, they know they have two young talents in Norris and Vandorne both of which the contracts are basically sorted to put them right in. It also allows them to shop the market for a more established driver. And if they take a more experienced driver, like Sainz. They now can evaluate the two drivers they already "own" and pick whichever one is more promising.  It also guara
  3. And almost immediately after I posted, Alonso announces F1 retirement.  http://https//www.motorsport.com/f1/news/alonso-will-not-race-in-formula-1-in-2019/3158671/?nrt=54
  4. Pretty sure that's a fake twitter account.  Although there should be some Alonso announcment today.  http://https//www.planetf1.com/news/has-indycar-dropped-a-hint-about-alonsos-plans/#
  5. That's really a surprise. I get him being at Red Bull is probably a dead end as long as Max is there but Renault seems like a strange place to go, although he really had no other options. He's really banking on the new regulations making them good again, which isn't necessarily a bad bet but still.  Honda currently isn't really up to it, but I figured if anyone can turn that around its Red Bull. I expect Red Bull to announce his replacement really soon. When Vettel left they didn't waste anytime. Sainz would make the most sense, but any delay kinda suggests that someone outside of Red Bu
  6. http://https//www.motorsport.com/f1/news/brown-blames-instability-for-unacceptable-f1-form-1055837/ He's either and idiot or really worried about his job... maybe both. 
  7. Zak Brown has done nothing but ruin McLaren when no one thought it could get worse. You can see that in this article even. Boullier leaves so they're gonna simplify the position... across three different people, how is that simplier?  "It's no ones fault" "systematic failures" two contradicting statements. If it's systematic then maybe Zak should resign too.  
  8. Dear Liberty, even if it's what your wives tell you, length is not the problem.  Especially when the most popular sports in America are long AF. Football is like a 4 hour game to watch. Baseball can go on forever.  Even the the most popular Motorsport in America, a NASCAR race is more than 3 hours long. 
  9. I think only 2 tires per race that are on the softer side would encourage pushing because you would need to make 2-3 stops anyway. Look at Indycar, they only have 2 tires and they have 2-3 stops every race and still push. Indy car a lot of time isn't limited by fuel, not necessarily the tires. And the general consensus regarding refueling is a big no.  We did two tires per race in F1, right before we move to three. We had options and primes. Which resulted in very limited strategy choices. At least with three compounds per race there's the illusion or possibility of an alternate stra

  11. "unprecedented access to archive video content from the amazing historic archive owned by Formula 1" I hope this means they'll have full replays of classic F1 races. If so I'd sign up just for that. 
  12. Probably nothing will happen. The way the marks are registered they don't actually overlap. 3M's mark is basically only for medical apparel, which F1s is not related to. 3M has to argue that F1s logo on clothing would be confused with their logos on their products. It's  not the worst argument in trademark law, but it's likely not a winning on, or at least not one that's going to prevent F1 from using the logo.  Something thatll likely happen is F1 will settle with 3M. I doubt F1 will (or will have to) go back to the old logo. 
  13. Ideally yes. But sponsors are only here to make money. They rather someone that can be a good representative of their brand. For an alcohol company, that isn't a 17 year old. Having someone that can sell they're brand is more important to the sponsors than just winning races.  Of course there is the argument that having a winning driver sells their brand just as well. The problem with that is the likelihood of Williams (or any mid field team) being a winning team again. 
  14. No worries, we're all entitled to our opinions (and I could have come across less salty). I'm just not a Hamilton fan. It's not his lifestyle or friends or fashion sense. It's often his attitude I don't like. But he is one of the best F1 drivers ever, I can't deny that.
  15. The salt is real. It's things like these that make me hate Hamilton. I don't get arrogance on this level. Ferrari were famous long before Hamilton was born and will be famous long after Hamilton retires. Why attack a team like that? What does it gain him?   Ferrari are experts at making their own lives miserable... I doubt Hamilton had anything to do with it. I mean Ferrari couldn't check spark plugs, you really think Hamilton is what makes them miserable?
