F1 has become such as shit show these days.
>>24595744Cars are too big now. Not a single venue can actually hold all of them at once because they're so long. Instead of fixing the technical regulations they resort to switching out a bunch of tracks every year. Monaco will go soon because of this.
>>24595744Good thing hillclimb exists.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddTn8PXw7-A
>>24595744f1 died in the early 2000salso, fuck the kingnigger
>get penalised for actually racingFIAMG lul
i'm glad there's finally some elbows out and a three place grid penalty might as well not be anything
>>24595756This. Clumsy piece of shit speedbuses.Change the car to fit the track, not vice versa.
>make the cars wide enough to block more than half the width of the track>keep shitty sausage kerbs that straight up launch the cars up into the air>penalise drivers for making moves>introduce shitty sprint races that no one fucking asked for>suck your own cock about being inclusive and how you're #racingasone despite being a textbook example of monetary privilegeThe FIA can suck my cock from the back
>>24595756Good, fuck Monaco
>>24596049yes>>24596479don't get your hopes up too much, it's been a parade for years and everyone knows it, but nobody wants to be the bad guy
FIA a shit
I hope RedBull get robbed this years and they seethe so hard they ragequit and start their own series If they take Renault with them then F1 is just Ferrari and Merc lol, and Ferrari is never winning again so they might also jump ship
>>24596049>>24595756>all of this and people elsewhere are defending hamilton, not on a "well that's the FIA's trash rules" technicality but they GENUINELY think he was racing properlyclown series for clown people
>>24597364>wrecking kyle busch based
>>24597392I would be so fucking pissed, the one year we have a chance at non-merc win. just give me this once
>>24596479this. It was always retarded but it's been a long time since the cars were too fast for such a tight and narrow place. No room to race any thing above spec miatas in that place for real.
>>24596479Should put the drivers in gokarts around monaco
i find it odd that hambone smacked vercrashen off at silverstone and only got a time penalty and this, where i can only assume they expected vercrashen to use the escape road, gives vercrashen a grid penalty for the next race. hambone destroyed a car and got a huge points advantage this was just a bit of a bump and would have made little difference to points standings
>>24597887Ross Brawn bought a Honda championship winning car for 1 euro, won the championship in 2009 and then sold it to Mercedes for 200 million euros, in exchange he promised Mercedes to give them the advantage of developing the new v6 turbo hybrid engine many years before the regulations were even made public once he reached a relevant position inside the FIA. Now Mercedes F1 is a literal behemoth bigger than most medium sized business, and are making a killing selling shit to third worlders who see Hamilton as their guy, the amount of influence they have over the FIA is something that Ferrari couldn't even dream about.
Stopped watching f1 since bottas was told to not challenge lewis. F1 turned into a joke.
>>24597725A non-Mercedes win is a Red Bull win which is just as bad.
>>24595844F1's series finale was the 2006 Brazilian Grand Prix, everything after that is non-canon, high-budget fanfiction.The V8 was the final nail in the coffin.
>>24598071and before any pearl-clutching faggot says it was San Marino '94 because their favorite favela monkey died, allow me to remind you of just some of the great racing you've dismissed:>Canada 1995>Monaco 1996>Germany 1997>Belgium 1998>Europe 1999>Belgium 2000>Australia 2002>Brazil 2003>Belgium 2004>Japan 2005Admittedly there were some great races in '07 and '08, but once the recession hit and everyone drove clown cars in '09 before the stretched abominations came along in 2010, there really hasn't been a single memorable race since.
>crashes into Hamilton>gets out of wreckage and doesn't even bother to check if Hamilton is dead from the fact that his rear tire ran right over his head>"YOU GET WHAT YOU FUCKING DESERVE" holy fucking based
>>24598102>get crashed into by Hamilton*Fixed that for you.
>>24597741>Spec Miata in MonacoWould watch
Why do so many people watch F1? I'd rather watch paint dry on a wall than that boring shit
>>24598149Formula 1 is a billion dollar industry. Everyone from normies to enthusiasts watch it every single year. If that doesn't tell you that the sport is far from boring then you're hopeless.
>>24598165Bernie actually was detrimental to the success of F1 and Liberty Media is the reason zoomers like it so much now.They're doing a good job too, i started watching F1 just because of youtube content
>>24598149It's fun to watch, let me guess you think sports like cricket and baseball are boring too?
>>24597364I just recently learned that euroNASCAR exists, but almost nobody watches those. How do they finance it?
Does anyone like the bobble-head cam? Maybe after the race is over, but during the race it's fucking idiotic. The Netflix "Drive to Survive" is ok, but every fucking time a driver keys his radio they think we need to see a helmet shaking rather than the race.
>>24598149Car goes around corner at 140mph with no liftoff I don't care if it sounds like shit Its still fast af
>>24598149why are people like you everwhere? why waste your time specifically going to something and telling people you dont even watch it because it is boring?>>24598165>>24598186i think because there are only 20 drivers its also much easier for normies to watch it because theres more focus on them and their personality
>>24598317>theres more focus on them and their personalityI've been a NASCAR fan on and off over the years and it seems to me that F1 drivers and principals just seem to be far more rounded personalities. NASCAR good-ol-boys aren't necessarily stupid (some are), but compared with F1 they just seem under-developed in every way, personality wise.
“we will remove Monaco because king nigger made a tantrum” FIA
>tfw I will never be a F1 driverit's not fair

>>24598709COTA can eat my ass. What a fucking awful track.
>>24595756Cars should be 3.5 metres max (from 5+) and 500kg (from 800kg) there is literally no reason from them not to be smaller, the 2022 ethos is in the completely wrong direction for good, fair and exciting racing
>>24599016>>24599042it was my first motorsport event and i had fun. i don't know how the cars sounded before irl, just that now they are loud and cool.

>>24600539There is no point in making more races in "non-shithole" countries because non-shithole citizens are fucking cucks who hate motorsport
>>24600306>>24600478In loco you don't need any real qualificationFor race days and pit stops you're monitored 24/7 for heart issues and must put in a bunch of hours per week at the gymMost of the pit crew comes from specialised technician schools, they're timed throughout the week and the guys with the highest averages get sent on race dayMuch like anything in f1 competition is ruthless and you won't get in if you didn't start as a kid
>>24601655Forgot pic, have a creepshot of Villeneuve's leftover aero bits
>>24599134will this fit on my civic
>>24598425There are too many wet blankets in NASCAR. The entire Hendrick stable is corporate and milquetoast. Same with Denny Hamlin, Tyler Reddick, Aric Almirola, Erik Jones and Christopher Bell. I hate all of them for the sole fact that they have the personality of moldy bread. I dislike Kyle Busch but at least he has personality and makes for entertaining racing. He’s fun to root against and reminds me of Tony Stewart
I’m annoyed Bottas got fucked by Mercedes. He’s a good driver. No multi year deal for being a loyal jobber . And they make him abandon fastest laps to let HAM have them. Hams whole career is a joke. Fuck him amd fuck mercdes
>>24595744Fuck f1For me it's indyCART
>>24598113Is this like the 3rd time the nig has tried to cause a crash to to prevent a competitor from beating him?
>>24598832Nigger watching manufactured overtaking is not enjoyableWatching someone almost die trying to pass in spa or monza or monaco is interesting and engaging
>>24598266Go watch subways or trains you'll be entertained for years then
>>24596049the tire thing is what bugs me if you want them to degrade just make them narrower (they would have to make them softer to make up for it) instead they engineer them to be crap fucking clown show of a sport
>>24602283>3rdLol try like the 50th
>>24595744Indy was actually worse but atleast chimp ganassi took it.
>>24598089>>24599155I've never liked the hybrid era (let alone modern cars), but I'm still enjoying this sport, so even if it's not what it used to be, it's still F1.I'd add some races to that list (which I think sums up some of the best of recent times), such as Germany 2019, Europe 2012 (2012 in general was a great season with decent races practically every time, despite the ugly cars), Canada 2011 and maybe Australia 2010. Austria 2020, Hungary 2015 or Baku 2017 could also make the list. It's too bad that I was so young I can barely remember some races of the early/mid 2000s (the first race I ever saw was Brazil 2003), 'cos I would've liked so much to fully enjoy that period of time along with the 90s. Races like Europe 1999 are a must-watch, but well, I've lived Hungary 2006 so I won't complain much :p
>>24598880>MUH NO OVERTAKESwhat is pit strategy you pleb? undercut/overcut, does it ring a bell, faggot?

>>24595744>Punts the leader of the championship into a wall>Gets some time penalty>Speeds out of pitlane>Pushes off championship leader off track>Championship leader gets grid penaltyWhat is the FIAMG mafia up to?
I like how F1 being dominated by a non-white makes so many chuds seethe even when they know it'll be back to whitoid business as usual when he finally retires.
>>24605502The buck is broken, Max literally turned him into a tranny
so what happens to hamilton if he's not driving an OP car? I'm not saying the guy isn't a great driver but we can't just ignore the fact that mercedes has had the dominant car over the last decade
>>24605502>it'll be back to whitoid business as usualYou just know they will be hyping up the next token nigger that gets to F3 like the second coming of christ
>>24605567The entire 2009-2013 seasons and the 2016
>>24605581seems like a pretty fucking dull series if the car's performance is more important than the driver's skill.
>>24598113Nah. Everybody agrees it was Max's fault. Even RBR is pretty neutral about given their long history of vehemently defending their drivers.
>>24605584That's why IndyCar has gained more of a following in during the dynasty F1 era.
>>24605591If the car didn't land on top and his rear wheel literally on Ham's head Red Bull would have defended it, but the mood isn't right especially given Max's conduct after the fact.
>>24605591seems pretty clear cut to me that hamilton was driving like an absolute vroomer and caused the accident
>>24605628>Hamilton is ahead>Hamilton is ahead>Hamilton is ahead>Hamilton is ahead>Verstappen isn't even off the track, he's riding the curbWhat's the problem here? Hamilton had the line and he left a car's width of track open.
>>24605591>Nah. Everybody agrees it was Max's fault.everyone who isnt a brainlet agrees that it was a racing incidentinb4 you wouldnt think this if the roles are reversedif the roles were reversed it wouldnt even have happend because max would have pushed ham off much harder in the first part of the chicane
>>24595744F1 is always shit. Anything Europeans touch turn to shit. It's a "sport" focused around taking all the risk out of autoracing. It's a self-defeating enterprise.
>>24598240Motorsport is financed by drivers paying the teams to race, and the teams, in turn, pay the entry fees for the championships they are entering, among other things.Ticket sales and TV viewership makes up a very small portion of what the organisers get to sustain their operation. Only the highest levels of Motorsport put a lot of emphasis on viewership and attendance because there is obviously a lot more money to milk from that.The cars in Euro NASCAR cost around 60k euro monies, the winner gets some money (way less than they spent to get there, of course) and a guaranteed test drive on a Cup car in the USA, it's an overall cheap, low-stakes operation that is easy to sustain and doesn't need TV deals or huge crowds to survive.We went for like a year of zero public attendance and the cars kept racing regardless, from the basic bitch regional trophies all the way to the world championships
>>24605780"Racing incidents" do not imply that nobody is to blame for causing it, retard. Even in the statement that penalized Max, the FIA acknowledges it as an incident. I agree that it's a racing incident and that both drivers share some blame, but most of it lies with Max.
>>24605584That's what you get when you leave teams free to develop their cars, it's inevitable. If you want to see drivers playing more of a role then you watch a spec series or you introduce BoP, which is frankly retarded if applied to F1.What's really wrong is the positive feedback loop of the current rules, where if you win you get monster prizes that allow you to be even more competitive, whereas the backmakers are left with pennies and very little possibility to improve due to limited funding, limited prizes and limited sponsorships. It's a vicious cycle that will never allow smaller teams to compete unless they hit a jackpot like Force India did with the Stroll family. I mean, winners should get recognition for their efforts of course, but the way it is structured puts the non-winners on the verge of a death spiral that is very difficult to recover from. We'll see how it goes with the budget cap
>>24605502>>24605508why are the niggers wearing dresses?
>>24605718>can't go anywhere>riding the curb>hit a sausage kerb designed to stop you from cutting the chicken>HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN TO ME?Realistically, those who say max is at fault here, what is he supposed to do?When hamilton closed the door on him, he already had his front wheel infront of hamilton's back wheel.So either he continues and what happened happs, or he slows down, hits hamiltons back tire, and they both spin out, possibly giving max the advantage.
>>24606144Or he just steers to the left, drives over the sausage that he was going to hit anyway, drives through the runoff area and then drives back on track
>>24605828>risk = goodwhy
>>24606200>steer to the leftyou get many scenarios>hit the curb and jump into ham anyway>cut the corner and hit ham because he carries too much speed>understeer into hamthere isn't a single scenario where they didn't collide.
>>24606410Yes there is because they aren't going that fast through the left corner.They collided because none of them wanted to give up their position, regardless of whose fault it was. If Max decided to give up the attack earlier than the sausage curb (and the lack of space was obvious way before that) he would have had plenty of space to stop the car or to bounce on one of the few hundred speed bumps in the runoff or to even stop the car completely like it routinely happens at T2 in Monza when lots of cars try to squeeze in a tiny gap.Doing what he did was a guaranteed collision, but bailing to the left had a possibility of just losing time without crashing the car. But who knows, maybe he was hoping to just push Ham out of the race or he saw a double DNF as an acceptable risk given the championship situation. Or he was just fucking pumped out of his tits because we are being armchair F1 drivers with the benefit of hindsight, while they actually have fractions of a second to decide what to do in the heat of the race and it doesn't turn out well sometimes.
>>24606144Maybe what he made Hamilton do at turn 4 on lap 1 of the very same race, or on the opening lap at Imola?
>360° cam of crashhttps://youtu.be/c21mcgGjbqU>360° cam of crashhttps://youtu.be/c21mcgGjbqU>360° cam of crashhttps://youtu.be/c21mcgGjbqU
The Max/Ham shit going on is clearly a Senna type of situation. They both know that the moment the other backs down from this time of situation they will always do it from that point on, they both know they'd rather destroy their car before what's basically surrendering
>>24606608The virgin crossdressing mulatto just can't deal wirh the CHAD kankermongol and has to racequit everytime
>>24605599>Max's conductWhat conduct retard? If the track officials order you to leave the area, you should obey themAnglos are seething Max sinoly walk away forget that Russel slapped Bottas after the crash in Imola
>>24606383Because without real stakes you might as well just have everyone play a round of Forza
>>24606383Ameeicans are retards with a hero complexThe only problem with modern F1 is that Brawn and Mercedes are corrupt as fuck
>>24607277>The only problemlolno
>>24606608Difference here is that max was carrying too much speed into that chicane, it's a faster oneAlso Max cut him off way before the orange sausage kerb, allowing him to use the smaller yellow-black onesThe first chicane is much slower.Ironically Gio and Ver back in 2017 did the exactly the same thing without penaltyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_J-sfngex4
>>24607327lol yesThe regulations aimed at making racing more fair have delivered some kino this year
Frankly I want to see Max get ahead in points just enough that hamilton could eke out a win in the last race of the season and for Max to just fucking wreck hamilton out coming off the grid.
>>24605502Lewis is dominating it though. Do you even watch F1?Also take LH out of the fastest car and he'd crumble to the opposition. George Russel is going to show up LH next year and MAx already has the psychological dominance over LH this year.
>>24607338>sounds like shit>tracks are shit>cars are too big>MUH safety over everything >FIAmg>kingnigger and his faggy identitypolitics>politics overallthere is more than corruption being a problem. its great they are trying to create closer racing by reducing dirty air but thats barely the tip of the iceberg

>>24607413>I'd love to see them go back to V10's but it's not happening because of MercedesIt's not happening because half the grid is represented by car manufacturers in some form of the other and screaming V10s are not the direction the market has been taking for years, whether you like it or not.Downsizing and electrification is the name of the game, you are lucky that FormulaE exists so they aren't pushing for full electric F1 as much as they could have been if a prominent open-wheel electric series never existed
i always fucking hates this thing. not that i've ever been invested in a motorsport but you only need to watch for 10 seconds to see how much more impressive rallies, hillclimbs, isle of man tt are compared to this. and guess who's paying those millions for it that will never be changed into advancements in consumer cars.
>>24605914It was the MET Gala and Ham sponsored a table of yuppie black fashion artists.
>>24607433Tilke dromes actually have better racing lolCope>which in turn makes the racing worseExcept that's wrong.>mercedes literally BLACKED their cars Mercedes had black cars in the early 00's too retard. Fucking schizo.
>>24607448No, manufacturers hate the new hy rid engines because they are expensive as fuck and because they are based on a Mercedes design that just happened tonbe chosen by Brawn to be used as the new engines, there id a reason they want to get rid of the MGU-H
>>24609684>Mercedes had black cars in the early 00's too retard. Fucking schizo.Mercedes didnt even race (again) until 2010 you retard.
>>24609716Pretty sure he was talking about the McLaren cars when they were the defacto Mercedes F1 team before buying BrawnGP. Either that or their numerous factory works cars in DTM.
>>24610150Even then, Mclaren used the West color scheme not because of MercedesIf anything Mclaren used silver because of Mercedes
>>24595756You wished, lolMonaco is the first filter for casuals like you, piece of shit.
>>24595762>good thing a italian nobody is climbing a hill by himself, with no competition whatsoeverdie in a fire.
>>24597392>If they take Renault with them thenYou do realise Red Bull runs Honda engines, right?Right?
>>24609612>yuppierefrain from using words whose meanings you don't understand. You think they make you seem smart, it just makes you look like more of a moron.
>>24609694There is a difference between not wanting the MGU-H and wanting V10s back. And just because you mentioned the talks about the new engine regs, you conveniently forgot about the little detail about the idea of inline-4s being proposed at the same time as when they canned the MGU-H and proposed cost caps on the engjnes. Even the fact that this was officially discussed speaks a lot about what manufacturers want.Hey I mean, I love V10s as much as the next guy, but don't pretend it's a big conspiracy coming from Merc if they aren't coming back (not the fact that they were introduced), because that's simply not true, big engines are dead, manufacturers aren't interested in them anymore, don't be obtuse.
>race faster than the propped up nigger>DRS and penalties up your assas this anon says, it's ded >>24595982
>>24607271He yelled on the radio “this is what you get when you don’t leave space” followed by an expletive
Watch how the FIA and Mercedes seethe when RBR will "serve" the penalty by replacing the PU and starting from the back of the grid anyway.
>>24611273And? Max's mother language isn't english, retard
>>24611206https://www.planetf1.com/news/christian-horner-high-revving-engines/Mercedes has the advantage with these turbo engines because they started developing them earlier than everyone, the rest of the grid wants high revving N/A engines
>>24598149Watch the Netflix series about F1 and the behind the scenes stuff. It made me a lot more interested in F1.
>>24603252Totally agree. Also, I fucked up with Canada. I think it was 2011 the one with Button winning that crazy ass race, not 2012. I can't really remember the ones from the 90's. Apart from maybe Donington 1993 (the first race I remember watching). The 90's were golden, though. The Hakkinen x Schumacher era was absolutely glorious.

>>24611364Yeah no shit one of the few teams who is not represented by a car manufacturer and doesn't design its own engines says something like that, big surprise.Meanwhile Mercedes has the tech advantage so they obviously like the status quo, VW even wanted inline-4s (thank god they weren't listened to, at least), Ferrari literally just unveiled their own hybrid V6 supercar and not a single other manufacturer on the grid has any interest in designing and showcasing a V10. You could make a case for V8s maybe, since it's still quite a popular format, but let's be real here, it would go against almost everythig the automotive industry has been pushing for in the last decade and more.I ain't saying I don't want them back, I'm just saying that claiming that Mercedes is the sole reason why they aren't coming back is willful ignorance. They are a thing of the past and they will not come back.
>>24611593Honda sponsors RedBullThe fact that you are unaware of Brawn and Mercedes Corruption isnthe solenreasonnwhybwe have turbo v6 shows you are clueless
>>24602325my god, i love these oldie cars
>>24611593>Thinking anyone wants to watch cars with econobox engine formats race around a track
>>24611721>Honda sponsors RedBullAnd? Redbull isn't making its own engines and Honda will be out by the end of the year. Horner's rants about today's engines have just as much value as Steiner's. They don't have money invested in designing engines, they just buy from a supplier, it could be I4, V6 or fucking Wankels for all they care.Again, you conveniently keep missing some of my words because, as I said, I'm not arguing about how the V6 came to be and I'm well aware of the time and tech advantage the Mercs had, my point is that the big boy engines are not coming back and the reason for that is most certainly not all in the hands of Mercedes, but in the fact that the auto industry as a whole doesn't care about big engines anymore and quite literally more than half of the grid today is represented by car manufacturers which are in the business of selling cars and have all the interest in the world in following the most lucrative trend today.You just want the mercs to be the enemy because you hate the krauts, but it's clear as a day that there is literally not a single sign anywhere that points towards an interest in making engines bigger and louder, as much as that pains me
>>24596049The cars are 15cm narrower than the 70s, 80s, and early 90s when the tracks were mostly narrower.>>24597887In race time penalties and next race grid penalties for when the race is over or they're already retired are considered equivalent, whether they are or not is incredibly circumstantial (this one will probably make no difference because they will take an engine change penalty at the same time)>>24598880>Suzuka has no overtakesOh no it's retarded
>>24611770They may be narrower but they are long as busesKilling all overtaking on tracks like monaco
>>24598149it's for Euros because they're poor, soibois because zomg FERRARI & REDBULL & MERCEDES xDDDDD, and old boomers who remember when the sport wasn't fucking billionaires throwing dosh at nothing.Now? Fuck if you're still watching it you're like the morons who still watch American Football after all the shit the NFL has pulled.
>>24611767>Redbull isn't making its own enginesRedBull is going to start making their own engines dumbass, that's why they want to get rid of all the electric bullshit>>24611770>Suzuka has overtakesLol no
No consistently good drivers left. Hamilton maybe but hard to say how much its him and not the car. Before it was all skill. Now its all car. Tedla autopilot would bwat them all.
>>24612718This is the brainlet mindset who thinks modern car = car that drives itself and no skill is involved.You can't dominate a championship if the car isn't good, this has been true since forever. An exceptional driver with an exceptional car gets to dominate over the others who either lack the good drivers or the good cars, you can't only have one and go on to win over and over unless everyone else is also lacking something. Give a Merc to some dumb fuck like Mazepin or some absolute nobody like Giovinazzi and see how far they make it
>>24610399They can ibvite Renault to leave, that is what I mean
