It's too early to call this and not the right place to debate it but that wouldn't be great for many reasons.

I will instantly defer to your more informed opinion than my own since I don't follow WEC except occasionally watch a few laps and maybe LeMans. I only suggested it because I thought WEC effectively had an even worse manufacturer domination problem than F1 and the idea of having some slightly more bush league teams running heavily modified road missiles tickles me even if its not really plausible.

Maybe the ACO should reconsider loving over IMSA's DPi class, which is just LMP2 + manufacturer aero + manufacturer engines, and is thriving.

I wasn't aware of that series but after a quick google search, that seems to be more or less what I was thinking about.

They should really scrap LMP1 and have some kind of modified LaFerrari/MclarenP1/Konigseiggsgge class... bring sports cars back to the front of sports car racing, like it was a recently as the 90s.

New F1 rules introduced for this season mean new aerodynamic shitposts (with a more aggressive look), wider shitposts, no token system for how you can modify and update your shitposts, and expectations that shitposts will be faster than ever once the season starts.

I'm kinda gutted that the 'color' bbcode tag is restricted to custom avatars only. Orange posting would get tiring pretty quick though.

"There is no racing achievement [that will get me to do a shoey], that is disgusting," Hamilton said. "I wouldn't even drink sweat from my own shoe.

"We've got these hydraulic fluids going down there, they're running at 300 degrees or something crazy, so it's bleeding hot. My dad would call it 'toe jam' - he's just drinking toe jam."

Despite his unwavering stance on the shoey, Hamilton admits he doesn't mind if Ricciardo continues on with the tradition.

"It is kind of cool that [Ricciardo] has got his own little thing and I admire him for having his own little thing. It is totally cool if he wants to drink the sweat off his own foot, but I definitely don't want to."

When presented with a sweaty bogan shoe full of piss-water Lewis does what any sane, rational human being with a grain of self-esteem would do and says "get that out of my face you gurning simpleton", while Nico "I just want to be liked" Rosberg grabs it and chugs like it's the elixir of life.

I'm genuinely concerned about the amount of shitposts I'm going to have to read when the season actually starts if the thread post rate is this high before practice even starts

Post counts over race weekends are usually drastically overinflated and easy to skim through due to the big clumps of F1 goons livestreaming their own commentary. We've had pages of stuff like:
- LOL Kimi

- Remebmer when Kimi forgot how to drive?
- Ice Cream something

The MWDC this year should go to whoever is the first person to accept Ricciardo's plague boot from him and then just toss it over the railing without looking.

I like skimming through the live-posting after the race. It feels like I'm some sort of prescient time-traveler; watching and laughing as folks' cautious optimism is dashed against the rocks.

"wow, Ferrari have a good shot at a podium today"

*scrolls down*

"gently caress!"

...

"Alonso up to 6th, maybe they'll make some points this race"

*scrolls down*

"OH NO!"

While I agree that F1 champagne is probably worse than sweat, the emphasis in that sentence was on the *my* part.

Live posting adds something and is a time for great thread interaction.

Edit: The best race for live posting was the return to Mexico and the subsequent "WTF" posts in the race build up; especially the national anthem.
