    Just wanted to say what a brilliant interview with Damon Hill Pre-Race ,

    He also recognised the talent of the most complete f1 Racer ever bar none.

    Can you remember when F1 used to be dangerous? Not that I wish a return to the days of Lauda almost burning to death or Jim Clark killed during a race when he crashed into a tree! but imho F1 is very sterile these days.

    I remember watching F1 live at Silverstone when the cars were loud, dirty, powerful and driven by Real drivers and not the modern panzies

    I agree to some extent ,
    The problem is they use the sport to Advertise and sell cars , road cars are going the electric way so F1 has to follow.

    I will agree the cars do look awfully slow but the lap times indicate otherwise o_O

    I switched to Nascar in the late 90's , The Nascar board were approached about the electric/Hybrid option and the laughed it off :D

    I do get tired of people under rating the genius of Shuey , They loved the media hyped emotional wreck that was Ayrton Senna ,
    This guy was an emotional dramatic wreck but of course his passing was sad.
    I take nothing away from Ayrton don't get me wrong.

    Schuey was a complete driver with a bad attitude so people didn't like him.

    He entered F1 in a Jordan. He impressed instantly so Falvio took him to Benetton , he won races instantly.
    He made F1 safer with lot's of behind the scenes work.
    He brought science to the F1 driver , diet , fitness , lifestyle all to a new level.

    He then went to an ailing Ferrari team , Berger and Alesi had won nothing for 10 YEARS .....Nothing ...

    We all know what happened next.

    The F1 race in Germany yesterday was superb , it's a shame it took rain to provide the action yah ?

    Nascar <3

    Actually it isn't

    The cars are Hybrid and actually very quiet ,
    They are slightly louder this year but that is done purposely as the Fans complained ;)

    Half of the enjoyment of watching a live race is the sound.
