    It's still nice to see some old faces around again. Drop in when ever you have a chance.

    Yep, I totally agree. I'm glad to see that you guys are still coming to a forum in this age of Fakebook, etc.

    As for F1, I've been following it since before I could watch it on TV. I had to go to the school library and read about it in one of the "big city" newspapers that was there. Niki Lauda was my favorite driver and my elementary school classmates would make fun of me for liking a driver with a girl's name (yeah, I grew up in a podunk area, folks). There have been great seasons, good seasons and boring seasons. So to me, even if my favorite driver wasn't mopping up the competition, this is just another era that'll end sooner or later. I don't care for the Sky presenters (the presentation and content are great though), but I'll watch no matter what. I no longer watch the Indy 500 or the IRL (or Indy car or whatever it's called now). I couldn't tell you who races for whom in NASCAR these days. Drag racing just isn't my thing. LeMans isn't what it once was (IMO), but I try to catch the highlight shows, just because. I'll watch or go to an NBA game every now and again, but I'm not much on stick & ball sports.

    But when I stop watching F1... pass a mirror under my nose, cause I'm likely dead.

    Formula 1 has had it's ups and downs since it started. Unless we want spec cars it's going to happen. Sometimes it results in total domination by certain teams while the others play catch up, sometimes it results in the field being tighter, and sometimes things are outlawed the first time they are presented and protested.


    Fan cars

    Active suspension

    Traction control

    F Ducts

    Double decker diffusers

    Active skirts

    Mass dampers

    Flexing wings

    S Ducts

    Crashgate

    Water cooled brake tanks

    Burning oil for fuel

    Spygate


    ...and these are the things that we know happened. There are surely others where nobody got noticed and got away with it. Especially before all the good video and live coverage that exposed so many of them. Who would have thought an on board camera would first notice the strange hand movements that led to the discovery of the F Duct?

    If you can't appreciate it for the technology and/or racing, the scandal and rules changes in F1 can be almost like a made for TV soap opera or something.
