Sorry I may have mixed you up with someone else, what is your opinion on boring races where apparently the midfield battles were realy good.

good racing can be found in the midfield but it's only great if there's something meaningful on the line. outrageous example: vettel vs hamilton for 5th at brazil 2008. but normally they're fighting for like 6th in WCC, and i'd be hard pressed to care unless they were driving literal wacky races cars.

That's because the enduring spirit of Eddie Jordan lives on at their factory. Some say that on a stormy night just like tonight.. if you listen very carefully.. you can hear the distant voice of the plucky Irishman berating an engineer.



Well they do have Jordan DNA after all. I really everytime he says this

Any of you plan on watching any older seasons in the off season?

I haven't seen 2012 and a lot of you speak highly of it. Gunna start with that then watch a 80s or 90s season I think.

I don't give a poo poo who wins next year. I'd just like more podium variety. And maybe a decent battle for first that's not over half way into the season.

Also if Lewis could just party himself to death during the offseason. That would be great.

The constructor's championship generally has some bearing on skill whereas the driver's championship, while often more exciting, is more a case of being in the right car at the right time and being better than the other person in that car.
