Thank God that the Korean GP has been pulled from the schedule. What a stinker.

It will be interesting to see if the race in Russia comes off, considering what's happening right now.

And Abu Dhabi as the season finale is a stupid idea. Let's have what should be the season's most dramatic race on the most boring circuit on the calender (instead of the most unpredictable).

Schumacher had been skiing off-piste when he fell and hit his head. His helmet cracked on impact after hitting a rock

That is the first I've read that his helmet was cracked.

This! I started watching F1 in the mid to late 90's and he was just starting to become one the most dominant drivers ever.

with rules that essentially take away all of redbulls advantages? i doubt it.

F1 is turning into a god damned spec series. wouldnt doubt if in the near future, they go to a mandated chassis supplier

Unless they've banned Newey, I don't see how Red Bull doesn't have the same advantages. It's kind of funny watching the 2004/2005 seasons and seeing where RBR came from.

look at the changes they made aero wise.

if the FIA is SO concerned with cost and such.. they need to implement salary and budget caps. with that, the cars are as safe as theyre going to be.. quit dicking with them to make them slower. and lastly, P1 >F1. their engine rules are what F1 SHOULD be.

much narrower front wing, no bottom rear wing element, mandated single center exhaust, shallower/smaller rear wing, lower front nose, mandated battery packaging, mandated driver position. youre most likely going to see a brawn gp sort of season.

indycars with a fancier front wing.

And RBR has the best aerodynamicist in the world and almost unlimited resources to design all that from the ground up. I would be surprised if they aren't one of the dominate teams by the end of the season.

And having F1 turn into the World Computational Fluid Dynamics Championship is any better? The 2009-2013 era tech reg regime was a spent force. The deck needed to be shaken up.

The idiocy with the tire supply/rules is another matter entirely. The penalty between clean air/dirty air ought to be eliminated.

i want alonso to finally get #3, but if he cant then i hope for kimi to get #2.

anyone but vettel at this point. i watch F1 as a religion. it is really the only form of sport i care about and invest a lot of time in.

for the first time in 10 years of F1 viewing i failed to watch a race. actually i stopped watching after Vettel tied it up in india. i just did not care after that.

and they keep pushing out the old glorious race tracks in favor of these new stadium style yawn fest circuits. now all the gimicky points systems, kers,drs. its getting to be F1 is more and more like WWF/Nascar.

costs are out of control and teams you want to see flurish are dead in the water and you really only have a few guys who have a legitimate shot at winning.

all the efforts to make it more exciting seem to, in my mind, be making it more stale and dull.
