frankv: I agree that regulating F1 to bring about innovation in street cars is ridiculous too. Anyone who is clever enough to design the regulations to cause innovation in a particular direction must already have worked out what is needed. There wouldn't have been the Colin Chapman aerodynamics discovery or the Cooper Climax or dozens of other discoveries.
But Adrian Newey whining about the cost of F1 is stupid... it costs as much as the teams are prepared to pay. If you totally regulated everything on the cars except the wheelnuts, they would spend a million dollars a race on improving their wheelnuts. If it was completely unregulated, they would spend a million dollars a race on all kinds of things, and the worthless would quickly get weeded out.
Bring back the Tyrrell P34 and the Lotus 56B!
joker97: make no mistake, vettel is exactly the same breed. (remember Istanbul 2010, and the nail in the coffin for mark with multi 21, and everything in between)
joker97: Ok... jules bianchi skidded and went under the tractor. Head vs tractor high speed. 4 hrs later no word no replay. Adrian Sutil who witnessed it in complete shock.
