How'd that work out?

Or the 2014 regulations that make the card heavier, longer and wider and added KERS. All of wich are slated to go away in 2026.
How'd that work out?
It all worked out fine. The sport has evolved, but it's always been fun to watch.

KERS isn't going away, it's evolving, the MGU-H goes away and the MGU-K grows substantially.

LOL, over the top is down playing it. I was thinking about starting a global GOFundMe to bribe Max to retire, but the F1 threads would still full of Max lovers for at least 5 years after.

I just wish every other post wasn't full of giant images or vid from somewhere else.

Perhaps we can just have two 2024 F1 threads; a Max one and another for everything else.

What is gonna happen with former Alfa team, Audi will take it over in 2026, but till then? Still wish BMW didn't abandon F1 15 years ago.

If only RBR were at where McLaren is now at Woking, couldn't they do a swap then I'd fly a RB flag outside my new place

Former team owner Giancarlo Minardi is saying a few words ahead of the new season for Ferrari and Fred, will he be able to take the pressure from seemingly all of Italy and seing Fred's build I would have a full health check at the doctors before returning to the scuderia after his break.
With just one opportunistic win at Singapore by Ferrari the general thought is that it will be Ferrari vs Merc mostly through '24 with McLaren and AM being the black sheep.

Vasseur gets hot under the collar when some claim Ferrari's lately found reduced tyre deg chassis alteration is an advantage and is showing that he is uneasy in joining in the usual high expectations for the team with the new car before it is due to be launched in a few weeks.

Interesting bit of news that Alain Prost has returned to Ferrari ! ...though not to Maranello but to drive his old 643 V12 in Dubai which was introduced mid-season in '91, the Dubai crowd loved it and cheered him on enthusiastically, but alas it was not competitive in it's time failing to win a race and led Prost to criticise the Ferrari family who in turn sacked him from the team for being disrespectful.

Absolutely, #8 kart man made his move too close to the barrier instead of being more on his right and the clot with the camera should have been moving more to the right envisaging a clash and not close right behind him..the bloody idiot.
