Seriously friggin' hot
- Jan 10, 2008
when verstappen blacked up it was a big deal but it’s fine when lewis does it. typical british fans.
Bingo. at least they’re listening, this would be a lot better.To be fair, I think Brawn acknowledges that they have got a lot wrong with the format and some of the quotes in the article go some ay to improving the idea.
Removing the idea of the sprint race being for position in the main race and even reverse-grid in the long term would make it more sustainable. My main problem with it was how it affected the main race - it should be an event on its own.
Doing a sprint race with the reverse grid from the seasons standings would be amazing. (Could use average qualification position for ties.) No-one would want to game that and it would mean chances for the smaller teams of points and lots of action of the big names overtaking their way forwards from the back.Bingo. at least they’re listening, this would be a lot better.
points across top 10
no relevance to the race itself, just let them go at it for points and an award.
i’d feel a lot more comfortable with that.
The recent F1 poll that had max as most popular with under 35's or something also showed only 6% were in favour of the god awful sprint races.
Exactly, show them that maybe they too can grow up to become rich and famous and shelter all their money overseas to avoid paying taxes in their own country.Why cringe. It was all about the children, not Lewis Hamilton.
You only have to look at their faces to see the effect on them.
Why do we always criticise attempts to inspire the next generation.
With respect, it was nothing at all like that. But you must think what you must think.Exactly, show them that maybe they too can grow up to become rich and famous and shelter all their money overseas to avoid paying taxes in their own country.
loooooooooolz the vid was nice
That used to be how it worked.I'd make one change to qualifying. The tyres for Q3 (your fastest lap) are the ones you start the race with. That would put the cat amongst the pigeons. Do you go for grid slot on SOFTS or think about the race and less stops and go for MEDIUMS etc.
Top teams would hate the idea.
Longest continuous donuts before suffering a blowout gets 5 bonus points.What about the driver who can set the longest tyre burn outs get pole

Yes it would be , but would it not be time consuming to do it for every car ?I can understand why practice and qualifications quote times.
But wouldn't it also be interesting to also translate these into how many metres a car is behind the leader, or the car in front?
