Re: F1 2013 Championship

Can't say I'm particularly bothered about missing any of those. India is boring, Russia is just in it for the money/just 'because' ("oh look all these other crappy Eastern countries have GPs, so let's get one too!"), India is pretty boring, and the New Jersey track looked crap anyway (oh great a generic street circuit around an Industrial estate). Bring on Austria!

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Well some of the more traditonal circuits such as Monza, Spa and Silverstone are better than the Tilkedromes we got with a lot of the newer circuits.

Absolutely!

Imola was a favourite of mine - although I suppose the Senna/Ratzenberg tragedy soured the place for a lot of people.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Perhaps, But deaths and injuries have occured at many circuits. Most drivers would want others to continue racing there even if they were killed at that circuit.

It's like saying we shouldn't go into space because astronauts have died getting into space or coming back from space.

And ys I miss many of the older circuits, yes I know the sport has to expand into new territories.

At least we've got one proper track secured for a few more years (probably even longer if Honda stick around).

that's some good news.

though looks like pirelli have deployed their famous exploding tyres at spa to make up for a few quiet weeks without much f1 controversy.

Well there is something to be said about the classic race tracks. Would we really like to lose places like Silverstone, Monza, Spa, Suzuka, Hockenheim, Interlargos?

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Disapointed for Di Resta, but Lewis does it again. Four in a row.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Lewis showing Fingerboy how it's done! Shame for Di Resta, though, and shame for the championship that Kimi and Alonso are so far down (need a couple of Fingerboy engine failures combined with Kimi wins to balance things out!).

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Well Fingerboy has managed to ruin what is usually one of the highlights of the season. The championship is probably over for Kimi, Alonso is gradually falling out of realistic contention, and Hamilton was never in with a chance of the title (four poles in a row is pretty damn awesome, but the car is still shit when it matters).

Anyway, time to watch some BTCC, and overtaking!

Re: F1 2013 Championship

I don't think that this years race will go down as one of the classics at the circuit. And perhaps they should think about changing the pit entry and bring it forward a bit to before the chicane starts.

But the Championship isn't over yet, all it takes is one DNF, a bad pitstop and Vettel could lose his lead.

Yep don't want to see another Tilkedrome, most of them have been rather boring.
