F1 2017 - Malaysian GP

News before the race weekend:

How I loved seeing that Mercedes burn, hahahaha :smiley:

As a long time Mercedes fan I disagree. XD

Unfortunately I don’t watch F1 that often anymore. Something changed in F1 generally. I don’t know what it is, but it’s not the same as it was when Schumi, Mika, Coulthard, Villeneuve and others were battling for the trophies.

It’s nice to see Aston Martin entering the circus. :smiley:


zmajuga It’s the same with football. Football was godlike back when Zidane, Patrick Kluivert, Roberto Carlos, Luis Figo etc. were destroying the field. Now…all I can see are bunch of whiny butthurt snowflakes that spend more time on fixing their hair than training.

I feel it’s the same with F1. Schumaher, Mika and even Schumi’s brother Ralf etc…they were crazy drivers and they made the F1 exciting because every time something crazy happens because of them. I mean, there are few moments here and there in the current F1 (I don’t watch that often F1) but I wish F1 was as interesting as it was back then.


zmajuga I mean look at this…He played around with the car like with a toy.

It is because they complicated things with expensive and unnecessary aerodinamics. They still have that raw engine power, but they have so much down force they almost drive as they are a train on a rail.

buttstallion That sucks…

That is why they cant follow each other from up close, because the dirty air disrupts the way too complex front wings.
Old times:


Formula 1 has become pointless 10 years ago … Also Formula E is way better to watch… So you can BURN your shitty cars anyway XD

I still watch and enjoy it. :man_shrugging_tone3:

What? First full race on F1’s YT channel. Total legit recording. What? You can’t even watch a race from last season from legit source only if you recorded and kept it. This is something new.

Edit: But just now read this below the video:
To celebrate 19 years of F1 in Malaysia, we gave fans the chance to relive one past race in full. The monsoon chaos of 2001 - now available to watch for 19 days - was the standout choice…

buttstallion Even at a limited time, its a huge step by Liberty. :clap_tone2:

schlitty Yes, a big step. I would even pay sometimes for watching past races, they need a streaming site :smiley:
Sad this is the last Malaysian GP, my second favourite next to Spa. :frowning: I hate city tracks, need to get rid of them :smiley:

buttstallion Feel bad for Kvyat. He has taken his demotion like a man and corrected his attitude. Really not treated well.

Alonso, the master of race starts:

Liberty Media is very brave. Pre-Race Press Conference with Seb, Kimi and Max after that Singapore start accident :smiley:

Gasly should be entertaining.

FP1 in wet conditions, FP2 is over with a red flag. Grosjean’s huge crash because of a loose drain cover was sudden.
