Watch Aussie V8 if you want some spectacular races smily_headphones1.gif

Sure and Nascar, Indycar, most other leagues (except F3) have closer racing and more dueling for wins than F1 has ever had. But don't berate the season because it's not Aussie V8 racing - F1 never was and never will be.

Bahrain 2014 will go down as one of the all time great races. Canada 2014 was fantastic. Hungary great.

People still bang on about the 1988 season - how many teams won races that year? Two. How many if you discount Ferrari's single win? One. Just because the championship battle is an intra-team battle doesn't make it less interesting.

- Spa-gate
- 3-4 major resignations
- surprise team switch by top driver
- maybe the best driver in the field looking for a ride
- a monsoon
- one team in receivership - likely leaving
- reliability issues affecting championship
- some seriously scary crashes
- brake failures affecting championship
- a fire affecting championship

- and Two ... that's right TWO drivers fighting tooth and nail for the championship all year long.

The fact that you may not like either driver, or that they race for the same team, or that you do not like that team is immaterial to the fact that the season has been a roller coaster of F1.

If Webber had been able to keep Vettel honest over the past 4 years F1 would have been a hell of a lot more enjoyable, even if RB still won everything.

 

The season is good, the Russian GP is not. The track was so boring I didn't even paid full attention during the race.

It´s low action also for being F1. The car sounds crap. the difference top to bottom has never been greater. I beg to differ like crazy :p

Never trust the opinion of anyone who would sell his T1s!

(Although I do completely agree.)
