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

    ^ 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.

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

    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.

    No doubt Bernie is already rubbing his disgusting little fingers together, deciding which stupid Far Eastern/Third World shithole to start a new GP in to replace it. It's sad to see all the proper GPs slowly disappearing.

    Who knows maybe the French GP could be rn in place of the German GP this year, as the issue seesm to be about the circuit (Nurberbring) rather than the German GP itself.

    If I had to pick which European races had to stay on the calender

    Monaco
    British
    Italian
    Belgium
    +1 Other

    FWIW German media is now reporting that there has been an agreement and the GP will take place.

    Germany should stay, and France, Portugal and Austria should return at the expense of a few crappy Third World events (Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, China, etc). Sadly, that will never happen, but in an ideal world...

    Well in an ideal world many of those souless Tilke circuits would be gone from the calander.

    they should bring back the old austrian circuit, but not the terrible 90's version.

    and bring back adelaide. and go to bathurst. and the mexican gp.

    Imola was always one of my favourite circuits. The Aqua Minerale sequence of corners is breathtaking.

    Imola would be good, though it would be awesome with the pre-1995 layout (it was never THAT dangerous in the first place, they just overreacted and dumbed everything down 'just in case' after Senna died).

    I quite like the re-profiled Tamburello, myself. But it was a great layout pre 95, it's true.
