f1 and top fuel should be completely unlimited classes, but technology has surpassed the human body's ability to stay conscious or alive during said competitions, i.e. john stapp and detached retinae, f16

Vettel got absolutely robbed in Canada. And that was the best award ceremony I have ever seen.

That was pathetic. Max almost got the same treatment in Austria. I think if he'd have gotten penalized out of that win by the stewards there would've been a riot- there was shit-ton of Dutch fans there last weekend.

But these cars also run 250 - 300 laps compared to 65 - 70 laps in F1.


Except the laps are much longer. foreheadslap

So wait, treehuggers built more fuel efficient cars, that are much faster, have superior aerodynamics and can even corner without banked turns!
Also, they can turn both ways AND can run in the rain.

This is bad why? "Treehuggers" seem to be kicking NASCAR ass.

If you want to compare really compare apples to apples you need to look at F1 and Indycar. Indycars have the comparable speed, handling and race some really long circuits. They also do a lot more laps than F1 on old tech and as a group are a lot more competitive.

I like both venues myself. F1 because of the ridiculous hi tech and the prestige. Indycars for the closer racing at high speed.

The Indycars will be here at Laguna Seca this September for the first time in years.

My favorite indy car of all time was the Lotus turbine. I remember as a kid it was my favorite Hotwheel and I took a keen interest in its exploits. Never quite lived up to its potential and was quickly outlawed. Too bad. I loved the minimalist design.

Lotus.

That was a racing name. Bobby Unser won the 1668 Indy in an Offesauer car.

Pushing the envelope.

Personally in F1 my favorite is McLaren.

Closet motorhead here. F1 cars are insane and the $$ and logistics in the sport are even more insane. They definitely need to do something to get more passing into it, though. Still, more interesting than going around in a circle like Indy or NASCAR.

I really like endurance racing - Le Mans and Sebring and the like. The cars are equally insane as F1 and they have classes for production GT cars like Ferraris, Porsches, and Ford GTs, racing at the same time as the prototypes.

My buddy has a Porsche Cayman S and he lets me drive it now and then.

Supposed to be able to do 170 MPH but I've only touched 120 so far.

Nice little car and fun as can be to drive.

You wish-list big amigo. LOL



Take care.

McLaren looks to be on it's way back from the doldrums.

The Haas team is American and they're (excepting the last couple weekends) steadily climbing the ladder.

I want to see Renault get its shit together for Danny Ricardo- in the Merc or Ferrari he'd be hassling for wins and podiums.

Early 2000's Renault 3L V10 on dyno- probably between 750 and 800Hp. Vive La France!

Loud internal combustion engines trigger me.

As does admiring the prowess of other men.
