You are right Sam. It has always been, more or less, a sport that favor's one manufacture over all the others. Most of the tracks are boring and most of the races are boring unless there's rain. The only small bit of excitement is Qualifying and the First Lap. Otherwise, its blah, blah, blah about tire compound, tire wear, pits stops, and pit stop strategy.

Agree, this last race was helped by the safety car. Perhaps they should introduce a mandatory safety car around the halfway point.

The fastest lap point seems to have helped a little bit, but not enough. I believe they're trying (Liberty and the FIA) but it will take time.

I think things will mix up Lewis Hamilton retires. Unless Verstappen goes to Mercedes, that is.

I think that it is only a very few people that have a huge impact on the sport.
Adrian Newey comes to mind, Winning followed him from McLaren to Red Bull.


but the rules change for 2012 and the tussle shall start anew.
