The cars slide/oversteer on the corners which the driver skillfully controls with the throttle and steering. Also, the use of heel-toe techniques and such.

I guess I can say I don't see the car-driver interaction that much.

GT racing is still interesting in that respect.

That's it Proton,you got it right.BTW Spa is just amazing.

Is this the new Ferrari?

 

If yes, they seem to have removed the step nose...

Definitely, even with a car that is clearly not as good as the RB or even McLaren, he won races and even led the championship points last year.

In this link there are the best races of each one of my two favorite driver,Jaques Villeneuve and Ayrton Senna .

Great Races ,hope you enjoy.

 

I have collected all races from 1978 to 1993 (If my memory doesn't fail) ,some are VHC ripped from my own recordings,some i found on the net.They are from many tv networks in all sort of languages,and their quality if far from Full HD,but if someone are looking for some missed races,just PM me and i will try to send you a link or try to make some sort of torrent.

After 1994 (and not because of Senna's death) formula 1 started to seem a lot boring,especially when Schumacher started to brake all records with a far superior team and car with no one to compete with.and that's from a heavy Ferrarista as i am.

Your website is amazing !!

 

I'll probably pm you in a few days... Thanks for the offer !

 

I don't what happened after 1994. But I know that a lot of people stopped watching f1 after senna's death. Actually, that's why the FIA allowed refueling...

A very good example I feel would be the transmission. Older cars were manual, had a longer shift time, and IMO that increased the competition. Take a look at Jim Clark or Jackie Stewart's race videos, you'll know what I'm talking about.

 

I feel that speed does not equal to a thrilling race.

I agree. 

 

Do you remember senna driving down Monaco's street one handed, heel-toeing every downshift? That was spectacular...

It was only saved to some extent by some absolutely transcendent drives by Senna - the kind we of drives we almost never see in the PlayStation era. Personally I think Newey should get a lifetime ban - for the good of the sport biggrin.gif .
 

Yeah but they were still great pilots. Of course the Williams brought a lot of improvements along (Semi-auto gearbox etc...)...

New Force India. Is anybody else getting tired of waiting for Force India to reveal their second driver?

post #38 of 1281
Yes Shumaker was the winner and there wasn't a competitor. It was boring to see who would take 2nd and 3rd. Usually Benz but I was a BMW fan.

In last year's F1, out of 20 Races, Alonso was only at the pole once in Germany, yet he won 3 races and almost won the championship. I think he is the best F1 driver today.

Seriously. They have launched their car ... with one driver? That's a little bit sad. I like FI and Di Resta. I hope Mallya's financial issues don't screw the team up beyond repair.

I doubt that. F1 has been making money for Mallya. It is odd though to release the car with only one driver.

Here's a link to a video of former F1 chief mechanic Gary Anderson's first impressions on the new McLaren:

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/21283726

 

It sounds like they've put together a pretty good package. 

post #43 of 1281
That was the most engaging I've seen Anderson. I think he's a smart guy but not the best announcer - but that vid was pretty well done. I will miss Jake though (even if he always got far too carried away taking the mickey at Eddie's expense). Suzi doesn't do much for me.

The Macca looks good. I hope they have managed to cure their weak race weekend operations and strategy.

To be honest i don't have any clue for the future of Force India in F1,last year everybody knew the owner had a lot of problem ,financially,i hope they can race for many year ahead ,they showed a great car and did nice races in the last two years.and i like their team.

Completely agreeing.

And now Raikkonen close,especially because i did not saw him driving that good when he were on Ferrari,but now on the Lotus is even better.

A Kimi fan here :)
I was very impressed with his performance last year and I hope we see more competitive car from Lotus this year.

Someone have to stop Vettel :)
