nobody cares. Get rid of your stupid DRS. Why have drivers? to issue penalties for racing, or the dumbing down of real racing. Historical circuits have been ignored in favor of new locations in far-flung corners solely because they can pay more for the privilege of conducting a race.

Anyone who isnít in a Mercedes simply canít win.

Throw out the stupid rule book and adopt the rule book of '94 CART. [censored] even bring back the cars. The 90's was the age of open wheel racing for a reason.

I agree. This is how an open wheel race car should look, run, and sound.

I'm just hoping the NJ race plans get resurrected now that Liberty Media is making some moves.

Oh? While Mercedes isn't exactly as dominant as they once were, they've only won one race, with Ferrari winning two and Red Bull winning one. Mercedes were within striking distance of winning all four, but so was Vettel, realistically. Even the anti-Ferrari British media have agreed we could have very easily seen four wins in a row by Vettel this season. That could apply to Hamilton, too, as much as it pains me to admit it.

As for places paying for races, unfortunately, that's necessary. If this historical tracks can't pay the fees that Liberty needs to keep running the show, then historical tracks don't get to have races. I don't like it in the least, but there is no quick and easy solution to this.
