Does anyone really care anymore.


F1 has become the most boring pastime second only to train spotting.

These #drivers arnt chosen because of their abilty,that are chosen through who they know.They are little more than camera fodder,all boring pretty boys who have no character or real balls that it takes to be a real driver.Its all about Sponsors and money.

The Rally drivers must roll about laughing at these guys going round in circles in cars that almost drive themselves.

What was it last week? Rain,ah yeh bring out the safety car

Pussys!

PS my Bosch washer makes more of an interesting noise than these cars do!

Uninformed fool?

ha ha

"Official figures from Formula One Management indicate television audiences fell to above 400 million last year, further illustrating the sport’s declining popularity."

"The new data means F1 has lost one-third of its worldwide audience"

I wonder why that is?


"Flavio Briatore has spoken up for the millions of disenchanted Formula 1 supporters around the world tired of dull, processional races in the top flight, arguing the sport's governing body, teams and drivers are all in the entertainment business and as such must make the show fun again.

Droves of erstwhile fans turned away from grand prix racing during the monotony of the Schumacher years, and a good deal more have since fallen by the wayside after the raft of recent regulation changes has failed to cure the problem of a chronic lack of on-track overtaking. Briatore is adamant the sport has a duty to the people who so avidly follow it."

And..........

"“We need to simplify things. We are in the entertainment business, because sport is entertainment, but Formula 1 is too predictable sometimes. It's only ever fun because it's raining or because something happens; we need to create more unpredictability.”

Yet when its a bit wet their balls shrink into their scrotums and now bring out the 'safety' car.

Get real,people want to see real men in real cars having Real races with real personality.


Them days are unfortunatly well gone!!

If people wanted to watch a line of vehicles conforming to EU sound rules,they would go train spotting.

The only thing more boring than the current F1 is people who complain how boring the current F1 is, it’s been going on for the last 30 years that I’ve been following the sport and I sure before that…

Try American Karts, they wont even go out if the track is damp yet there are more live changing injuries in Karts than F1.

The last few races of this season have been far more than just a parade of cars.

One of the main reasons why mg/rover owners are not members of the Forum is that they are not aware of it's existence. Three members of my golf club, mg owners, were really surprised to find the Forum was here when I told them.
