You ought to pitch that to the F1 steering committee.  "Look guys, if you want to make the racing exiting you need more nutters on the grid, You know the guys that don't realize when it's safe to pass and have no comprehension of the basic rules."  It would certainly be cheaper than all the other stuff they are considering.

Maldonado knows the rule it´s just that he pushes 110 % of what his capabilites are all the time. Nothing wrong with that. We need to get back to the days when you really had to push and nearly kill yourself to win Grand Prix victories not running smart do tire, fuel saving and cockblock faster opponents on track taking advantage of the bad air for the car behind.

 

Anyway if the F1 committee would get part of the sponsor deal they would favor him for sure.

Maybe that is one of the reason (apart from luck) that he won the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix :etysmile:

He is a GP 2 champion as well. Easy to forget :), 

 

I would love to see him in a top class car again. Not going to happen though.

Truck perhaps. Probably duke it out with Villeneuve now that his mouth lost him another ride.

Some form of sanity returns to F1.

Next is banning extra money to legacy teams hopefully.

post #2244 of 2444

Yes. I think the EEC investigation into that one will be a motivating factor.

 

Who knows, we may even see the return of real tyres.

Bernie really wants VW in F1, isn't he..

I think that boat has sailed. The only real hope is that once the carnage begins Porsche or Audi get absorbed by some conglomerate with a desire to enter F1.

 

I am wondering if this will have any effect on the Aston Martin decision to run away.

I have to say Renault's driver line-up must be my favorite for this season.. No b*llsh*t attempt-to-attract-sponsor-lineup like McLaren, giving a chance to 2 exceptionally talented young drivers.

 

 

And here's to hoping Verstappen will take Kimi's place when he retires.

Yes. IntheWaldo's departure made way for a very good line up.

 

I am still luke warm on Verstappen. This year will be a proving one in a lot of ways. No matter what, if he is not in a competitive car next year he risks becoming yet another great hope that got stifled.

Just wanted to jump in for a quick game of name that cheater ,uh ... I mean face.

Terrence Stamp?

 

He's lost weight.

 

And yet the rumours persist of some form of return.
