I know it's not what people really want to hear, but the sport is too safe. Gone are the days when you watched, knowing that the racing driver was a brave man getting into a steel bullet on wheels with little protection.
The sport now is just far too technical to make it great viewing. The only way I could see this being a decent sport is to put all drivers in identical cars, and let's see who is the best driver. World champions now are probably not the best drivers, so what is the point of this so called sport?

If you put every driver in the same car as you suggest.. the fastest/best driver should in theory win every qualification and every race, does that make it more exciting? yes the best man would win the championship but tell me how it benefits the viewers?

Cricket is utter dross, but F1 is doing a good job trying to match it
By:

When: 14 Mar 10 11:33
Maybe it doesn't. I don't profess to have the answer, just a suggestion. But seriously, this is not exciting is it? I see more racing in Edinburgh City centre on a friday rush hour.

Exciting pit stops there
By:

When: 14 Mar 10 11:40
ffs, no refueling, can't even get the possibility of a pit fie, or rig still attached to the car as the driver pulls away, or the fuel hose whipping round violently, smacking a mechanic in the process.
Boring Boring Boring.

So fkmqz, someone has an opinion on something on a public forum, and you just get obnoxious. I know enough about you already.

Been watching F1 for 25 years and never thought I would say this, but this is absolute rubbish. A waste of the license fee. The OP absolutely right, in fact train spotting more interesting than this.

fkqmz the sad one imo if he can't admit that this is utter dross. Amusing himself with insults too.

Couldn't give a monkey's about F1 It's utter tedium and an environmental sickener.
I only put up with it because you can bet on it.

Test cricket, on the other hand...

Apologies to my cricket friends, I do find it boring, but that is just the nature of the sport which is not to my taste. However this is suppose to be racing, which should be right up my street.

You don't have to read any posts. If the race was as exciting as you seem to think it is, you wouldn't have time to read or post. HTH

13 years ago.

One track in Asia, gravel traps all over the place, no tarmac run off areas, Monaco barriers actually hurt and the circuits were built in 1920 when they didn't think about safety.

The racing was still crap half the time, but at least you lived in suspense and the tracks actually looked like they weren't soulless.

and you dont have to watch this race, so stop your bloody moaning. gumpy old man syndrome.
By:

As a punter who takes my betting seriously, yes I do have to watch this race, and I am fully entitled to have an opinion on it, and the sport in general.
By:
fkqmz
When: 14 Mar 10 12:07
ha, so your taking your bets 'seriously' and yet you dont know enough about the sport to see past what all the football mugs see and you see fit to come on the forum which youve not posted on for months and start moaning about it. you are truely pathetic.

This is dreadful. Rule changes have reduced it to a procession again, after last season which was the best in years.
Oh, and hands off Test Match Cricket, which is in my opinion, far more intersesting than 20/20.

I know enough about making money on the sport, as I did so last season. And before you ask, I haven't bet on this event, but what I see today maybe of benefit in the future.

I'm guessing both.
