It's got to be Bar at least they have enough balls to infringe the rules to try to beat the opposition. Unfortunately they got found out, which is more than can be said for some teams over the last 30 years. You can bend'em but don't break'em
:-rules

I still think that their punishment is harsh. I remember a number of teams adding additives to their fuel but don't remember any bans being enforced. Just had a read of the judgement and they did not actually finish the race underweight, only when the fuel was drained were they underweight. That makes the judgement and punishment even harsher. Once again lack of clarity

I voted for Williams as I consider them my home team. I've been to the Frank Williams site and viewed all the cars he's built over the years. A very dedicated man.

I'm afraid that I don't watch it any more, find it about as exciting as Bag Puss. :)

I used to watch it in the days of Mansell and earlier, but to me it has lost something vital.

guys i am 17 and started watching f1 in 1995 and havent missed one race since for the first time in a long time i think six teams can win this year ferrai will win races this year .the only reason renault did so well at the start of the season is because they got a jump on the other teams more so with tires- maclaren should do well withthere two drivers if montoya can keep it on the road he should win a good few.bar has good chances to win this year it is about time button wins. but i think the team that will\have suprised us this year is toyota mike gascone is the best investment toyota have ever made-and if ralf can stick it on pole he should run away with it. i rekon this years formula one championship is not one to be missed

You youngster - Ive been watching from the mid 70's One of the best races I saw was a demoliton derby at Monaco - a Tyrrell got bounced up in the air on the first lap, and cartwheeled down the track. Sadly for the Tyrrell team he landed on the front of his team mate!!

One good thing about F1 these days is that the safely is so much better. I vividly remember watching the young Osella driver Riccardo Paletti die in a horrible start line smash that would probably be survivable nowadays - that was about 25 years ago..

Edit - according to grandprix.com it was June 13, 1982 at the Canadian GP. :(

F1 has been remarkably lucky since the dreadful weekend 11 years ago - dont forget 2 drivers died that awful meeting - as Simtek's Roland Ratzenberger died on the Saturday - as well there was a big start crash that put a wheel into the crowd.....

There have been several big accidents that the drivers survived more by a matter of good fortune.

Hey, there's nothin wrong with Bagpuss!

I still watch it and I do agree it has lost that edge, but this season is more interesting as the certain FIA favoured red cars have not won yet!:)

I remember the days when you had at least 4 or 5 champions racing, now we only have two, Villeneuve and Schumi.

Oh, and when it does get exciting (like at San Marino) with 3 laps to go ITV decide to put on some adverts!!!!!!! )(-red :-lan2

I also like to follow the IRL and NASCAR because it is much closer racing and unpredictable.


And when Bagpuss goes to sleep..............

irl is grand nascar is for red neck americans who like the shiny noisy things although the crashes are spectaclure the problem with 'the red cars' was they were not aloud to race rember 1988 maclaren won 15\16 races but it was a good season because they were aloud to race

And if memory serves me correctly, Gehard Berger won in a red car at Monza which was the race Mclaren did not win in 1988!
I have been to the British GP 3 times and Monaco once. Back in the Mansell years, in fact Mansell should have been in a Mclaren at Monaco '95, but he retired and dumped the team at San Marino the race earlier, so Blundell took his place instead.

Ahh those were the days.......

Any cheap keyboard with the right connection plug will do as a replacement. Your posts are VERY difficult to read for us older members with no capitalization.
