my father in law is Formula One mad and has been to Silverstone loads of times. His dream is to watch Schumacher at Monaco.

i of course support any other driver just to wind him up....in a nice way of course.

Monaco is where you see who can drive a formula 1 and who not. But I would like to see really a return to manual gear

The one thing I hate about it is the fact that it is so so difficult to judge the drivers because the car is such an important part of the team game that it is.

I would love to see a standard car, standard design etc for each driver to see who really is the racing talent rather than who is obviously very good but also has the best car.

I do understand this couldnt happen in Formula One but they are trying it in theat international team Formula (forget what it is called though??).

Could be in fact interesting what you say, and I have the same idea as you. But on the other hand there are so many automobile's industries who move tons of interests in Formula 1. You have colossal industries like Mercedes, Bmw, Toyota, Ferrari, Renault, Honda.................you know, it's a bit difficult they would refuse their huge part of money just to see who's the faster pilot

I agree - thats why it will never happen. There is just too much money in the sport and it is now a team game and construction and design of the car is more important than the choice of driver!

Why do you think sport is losing its value? Money, money, money................it wastes everything, sometimes I feel pretty uncomfortable by yelling for football, formula 1 and all the other sports I like..................................it's something you should forget when you're watching it, otherwise you really lose the whole spirit

The competition of the teams is the thing that drives F1 as much as the drivers, though. That's why the sport is still one of, if not the most technologically advanced motor racing series.

exactly and I appreciate that - but it does make it impossible to truly judge the drivers unfortunately.

Stick me in a ferrari and I will win every race against competitors in a trabant!
