Re: Formula One TV Coverage

RTL is pretty bad in comparison with BBC/Sky. Commentator Heiko Waßer is talking rubbish all the time and pundit Christian Danner can only correct half of it. Waßer is the worst commentator I know but he has been doing it since 1994 and is a legend for some (more like herpes if you ask me...). Ancho...

Re: 2013 Formula One Discussion

They could have signed Frentzen after he had to leave Jordan and Heidfeld was available in 2004. Sorry, you are just wrong in this case.

Re: 2013 Formula One Discussion

Toyota Motorsport is based in Cologne, Germany since 1979. Moreover, they spent their first three seasons without a German driver. Afterwards they hired Ralf because he was a multiple Grand Prix winner and out of contract for 2005. When Ralf disappointed, the current GP2 champion was the best driver...

Re: 2013 Formula One Discussion

Toyota threw more money at Ralf Schumacher and what did he deliver? Trulli was only brought to the team because of Mike Gascoyne. Glock was important to Toyota, who needed a German driver to fulfill their desired obligations in the German marketspace. Toyata did not need a German driver. Germany is...

Re: 2013 Formula One Discussion

Glock wasn't deemed good enough for Toyota after 2009 - they didn't want to retain him even before they pulled the plug That's not true. Toyota decided not to take up the option on his contract when the intends of the parent company to pull the plug at the end of the season became clear. It had not...

Re: 2013 Formula One Discussion

I want to see a shootout between Sutil, Bianchi & Alguersuari in Barcelona and the best driver gets the job. The show would be great for the team!

Re: 2013 Formula One Discussion

I'm not sure about the manufacturers. F1 had Jaguar and they failed. BMW were moderately successful. Toyota and Honda failed. BMW's, Toyota's and Honda's engines were good. Car manufacturers should supply engines (or "power units") only. Just look at Mercedes. Their engines are great and they had a...

Re: 2013 Car Launches

Marussia already have half a second in their pocket because of KERS. The car is clearly an improvement. The McLaren-style exhaust, the new floor and new sidepods are pretty easy to see and are looking decent. Pat Symonds is long enough in the business to know how to build a good car.

Re: 2013 Car Launches

They've found quite a good solution to hide the stepped-nose.
