On a related note, Vergne has joined Andretti's Formula E team effective immediately and will be racing this weekend. I'm told that's now 14 ex-F1 drivers who have raced in the series.

I am hyped.

The love for Haas on there is ridiculous. If you dare to point out the obvious (i.e. they probably won't make the grid in 2015 and if they do they will be horrifically under-prepared and poo poo like Caterham) you get downvoted all the way to China.

The top post earlier was a screenshot of a YouTube video of an interview of a man called "Fernando Alonso" who works for Airbus.

I don't know where all that hate for /r/formula1 came from. I looked at it the other day and it seemed boring at worst. But maybe my perception is skewed now that I've seen the historic gold standard of f1 discussions, mid-90s rec.autos.sport.f1.

Marussia came, inflicted two serious head injuries, then left. That's a pretty good record for such a relatively short time.

BAR were loving rubbish, they cheated and they prolonged lovely Villenueve's lovely career. Their only redeeming point was their year one liveries.
