    How many here are in favour of the no tire change rulling for this year? I thot it would have been better to change their tire at least one time.
    That's the rule I hated most. Take aways most of the excitment in the pit lane.

    Wonder what other rule can Bernie think of to "cut cost". 1.6L 4 Cylinder In-line?

    bwahahahah...... 1.6L 4 Cylinder Inline ferrari? Baby Ferarri for Grannies...hahahah...

    But seriously...cut cost for who? I have not done a statistic count but I think this year more cars crashed or gone out of control due to balding tires. Especially tracks that favours one kind of turn more then the other ( a lot of left turns or alot of right turns ) or newer tracks...they cause quite abit of lope sided wear or drastic wear.

    And how about those pit crew...they got the tire changing ritual down to an art form. Took years to train and get ready. I ever lifted one of those F1 type tire and it is HEAVY and not easy to handle. And you see them move it about like some pillow. And now, they are out of a job. Bummer man.

    Now, the only thing going for the pitstop scene is to see how many seconds they stop to gauge the amount of fuel-to-lap they have gotten into the tank! Wow...so exciting heheheh...

    I reckon they should then have some Race Queens get into the act...get four of them to come out holding a thermometer each to check the tire temperature..bending over.

    It's already been a rather sad news when they announce engine change to V8 starting from next year. 200bhp down compare to V10 is alot. And some of the teams say they can work with lesser crew, say 100 to 60ppl? Everything is cutting cost, yes i would say every year the F1 teams could spend billions but that's one of the reason y i'm so keen and a fan of F1. It

    It's really hard to say lo... 1.6L 4 Cylinder is possible! If i'm not wrong the tickets price is kinda high yeah? Btw did anyone watch F1 Sepang before?

    For us, I think we are just spectators and we wanted our favourite sports to be fun to watch and excite. And thats where ppl like Sato makes things happen.

    Well as for next year, we cannot forsee any rule changes coz that Mosley always comes out with funny ideas which sometimes pissed of team principal and owners. We will have to wait and see.

    Hey, I missed the tyres changes. Cars coming in to pit stop just for fuel is quite boring. Yah, I agree..at least 1 tyre changes.

    I am a Montoya fan. But for this year I support kimi for the championship. Errrr...But I think its kinda hard to catch up. Seems like Alonso's.
    Montoya is great especially during his past few years with BMW. Ah btw, one thing u're right. It's kinda boring when they pit in only for fuel...i would rather see the previous rules whereby they can change tyre. At least they should set a rules like, changing tyres is allowed during race but only ONCE or TWICE etc.

    Yeah the worst is the 1 set of tyres rule. Pits are no longer exciting. Takes away the pit crew's showcase of skill and coordination. Everything cut cost, they will be no longer exciting. F1 is technology driven, and it is expensive.

    A1 starting soon!

    Limiting engine change to 2 race, & the 1 tyre per race are part of the cost saving ideas for F1 as the whole. Think it was mentioned that the running cost for teams are getting to high. Teams on a smaller buget are finding it hard to stay in the competition.

    I like your idea. Race Queen to do the temp check. For sure I'll be in Sepang next yr.

    The big JAW man. hehe Sorry I am not a big fan of Alonso heheh.. I think he still has some years to go before he can be great if ever. He is a bit like Montoya 2 yrs ago.

    Hah, i'm not a fan of alonso either..but he's doing quite well this year. A world champ title for him might be too early..but we can always have a young champion..

    Well that is true I guess. I just feel the one who wins this year just happen to be abit more lucky. WIth all this rules restriction and changes...it has effected all the team preparation for 2005. Changes to engines, tire technology swtich..etc. Who could have guess how bad ferrari did this year. Not even a fighting chance. And look at how some of them win the race... Look at Montoya's lose when his car lose control when his tire burst and Alonso can in and take second. And look that US race!! hehehe...Just because of a wrong tire, majority of the team pulled out giving Ferrari two nice "gift" wins heheh...Aiyo...

    But I guess this also is excitement in itself lah heh...crazy crashes, drivers playing musical chairs by jumping from one team to another, Michelle Yeow's weird taste in man, Sato's clowning around...etc. heheheh.
