Re: F1 2013 Championship

If history is anything to go by a team only has a finite time at the top, In the early 1990's it was Williams, then McLaren, then Ferrari and so on, so sooner or later Red Bull will be knocked off the top step of the podium, who knows next time it might be Lotus or Mercedes.

Hopefully the noses of the other manufacturers will be closer to the 2012 McLaren this year than last years broken (stepped) noses.

It's pretty amazing how ugly race cars have become today. You think back to the FW14B or the MP4/7A, or 1990's era Penske or Reynard Indycars, etc. Then compare them to the stepped nose F1 monstrosities of today, or the COT in NASCAR. Maybe motorsport needs some kind of aesthetics rule? I understand the military going for function over form, but this is sport.

If they brought back proper ground effect cars, they'd be able to go for form and just hide the function without losing it.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

I see Dr Helmut's been shooting his mouth off again, about Alonso & Webber, and wanking over Vettel at Webber's expense...

Re: F1 2013 Championship

^ You might even say Helmut is stroking his helmet. He's just a prick.

I don't see what's wrong with Alonso saying that he's racing Adrian Newey, because the truth is, Red Bull would be NOTHING without Adrian Newey. Put any fast, consistent driver in one of his cars (at least when he's found some loophole to exploit) and they'll dominate. Hamilton and Alonso would put Vettel to shame with identical machinery.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Some big personnel changes at Mercedes! Wolff joining, Lowe possibly joining, and rumours of Brawn being dropped in the future.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

And some changes to the Tyre's

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/21167206


Though I wonder what would happen if they changed the Tyre rule and instead of the Tyre manufacture decind the tyre options for a race, the teams could nominate their own individual tyre choice. I.e One team might bring Medium and Soft, whilst another might go for Super-soft and hard.

All the red on the new Lotus just looks wrong.
