    There does come a point where keeping up becomes a chore.

    I think they will drive along 'The Strip', roughly equal to going by the Casino in Monaco. Could be exiting or a total disaster.

    Yeah, I know what you mean, the early 1980's Vegas car park 'circuit'.

    flutteringwow I am a sound quality evaluation device

    I have to disagree with that, I think there should be more!

    Best thing F1 did is remove that terrible French track from the calendar, its the only one other than Monaco that i have to literally force myself to watch. At least with Monaco it looks pretty. However replacing it with an Americanism..I'm not sure what will be worse after the Miami car park fake marina thing.

    First few races of the year made it look like there would be close racing.

    For one reason or another it is now the same old same old, just a different team and driver winning.

    The FIA must be thinking what the **** can we do now to get some excitment.

    It's getting boring again...........

    ...Or they could use the best racetrack in the world (IMHO), Road America in Elkhart Lake. It's already there. Indycar uses it, always exiting races.

    Now that would be a challenge for a low slung F1 car, especially the Corkscrew and attendant drop! Adrian Newey would have a field day.

    Been done, a few years ago. With an internal combustion engine, not a r/c toy mota.Just a demo.


    And, as ever, spectator footage has more soul

    Would be interesting to see an F1 grid in full race trim tackle it. Lots of seriously scrubbed tyres and broken front wings?

    Thanks for that Tony. And the sound of that V8 screaming at full chat. :)

    That’s just depressed me about the sound of the current F1 cars, Jensons car sounds fantastic!

    F***ing fantastic reaction, he can barely concentrate on the questions.

    I defended the new engines as technological marvels in the early days and they are noisier that they started but man alive those NA engines are something else.
