That's because this year's cars all stink. Check Fonemental's excellent post to see what I mean.

Aw...c'mon Chaz!

This year's cars are going to be awesome!! Total crap shoot to see who'll abandon in the early races! This years' championship will certainly go to the smartest team!

Rosberg, Ricciardo, Magnussen - it's gonna be an interesting season...

Edit: Ricciardo's out - disqualified for exceeding the maximum allowed fuel flow. Button new third.

Don't you think that there is a beautiful and simple symmetry in a Nascar race course that Formula 1 lacks?

If we are going to race go-karts I am all for that. Removing the design genius from the equation and making them work with the limited design options is, IMHO a huge step back for Auto Racing.

If good competitive racing is what you are after, check out Karts. At one of the races we went to in Tuscon last January, the Rotax Sr. main event had 36 karts, the first 24 were within .3 second. The tail ender was less than .7 seconds slower than pole.

F1- can play all the slow down games it wants, someday something better will come along.

EDIT FOR JIM: NASCAR is really fun to watch..... first a 450 mile parade, then a 48 mile sprint, then 3 of the best Green White Checker shoot outs money can buy.

Well.....there was an artificiality in actively slowing the cars down with bogus design changes, ie. grooving the tires. But this is different. This redesign with a view towards evolution of the technology. In a few years, they'll be running the same times with a "Mr. Fusion".

Randomly found this, seems harsh-ish but do Formula 1 guys chatter at each other like this? Or do they all speak different languages and that's a no?

The Rule Makers are not the type of folks who get innovative.... that is the job of people who are trying to build a better mouse trap.

Like Colin Chapman..... he wasn't picking the type of "wing" that the F1 would allow, he came up with a better idea.....

Im not saying that the new cars arn't cool, they are just going in the wrong direction, by ending inovation.

Hakster,

English is the official language of F-1. All radio transmissions are supposed to be in English.

New engines sound strange....kinda like 20 years ago. Was glad to see new faces on the podium, but looks like still a lot of bugs to work out of the cars and systems.Kinda wish they would loosen up on all the rules and restrictions and just let em blow hard and fast.
I like Donini's comment, could you imagine F-1 on an oval?? The Indy F-1 race was half way there, I would fall asleep when they would loop half the oval, at least they went anti-clock.
Peace

Ron.... going around in circles, is the hardest thing one can do in Auto Sports..... the reason?

anybody???

I just love it when folks put down circle racin, shows how much they understand about racing.

And the "Danica Thing".... no driver likes other driver who didn't "earn" their spot and gets lots of media attention. Its sort of like a "pro climber" who can get it done... on TR.
