Smile Re: Formula 1 fans?

F1 isn't a meritocracy, that said I'd have thought Mercedes would kick up a fuss as they supply the engines to Williams and this is tied in with that. There isn't anyone else to fill seats in the...

Re: General Election - 2020 edition

It's one of those things that would be funny for a week or so but would then grow very tiresome.

Re: Formula 1 fans?

F1 might be able to attract more engine manufacturers by standardising more "power unit" parts to reduce development costs.

Re: General Election - 2020 edition

Re: Formula 1 fans?

...and Honda are out of F1 again. Why do they do this? They have been getting closer and closer to the front of the grid. Hopefully whoever buys those assets from Honda repeats the BrawnGP trick.

Re: Formula 1 fans?

Mercedes will likely stay but Toto may change roles. With the budget caps it'll just be about managing the advantage they have built.
