    2018 please lets make this a nice place to come again.

    Hello everyone.

    Im putting this out there for everyone to read, take note and understand. I havent watched the first practice sessions from today, yet, as had 12hr shift. But, looking on here during breaks. All can say it, wow not again. Some people, you know who they are you know who you are, same old negative posts. Heavens sake, we only started and theres doom and gloom. Its, hate to say it, really embarrassing. This site has gone down hill over past couple years. I enjoy this site, but the days of debate topics have gone. If someone posts they believe Ferrari will do well, they get gunned down. Sorry, but that is just supporting.

    I will be very tempted to suspend people for constantly negative posts. Sorry, but hey alot of people like this site, like talking Ferrari, making friends, a family, community. Not being slammed for showing support.

    Lets make this the Ferrari supporting site it used to be and can be again.

    My love of F1 has diminished, yes, as some will know its endurance and Gt racing is where my love is now. But, Ferrari is still in F1, so will watch and support. And look forward to doing so on here too.

    Please read, and take in the below comments. For the sake of this forum, lets all come together.




    *Avoid personal flaming attacks. If you don't agree with what someone posted, debate their post... not the person that posted it. Baiting of other members is also not welcome on the forums, if your baiting then it will also be considered as flaming.

    *Keep in mind that this website and it's forums are visited by people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Many of which do not appreciate vulgar language. So, the less there is the better the forums are for everyone. If you really must express yourself by swearing then fully * out the swear word. This also applies to abbreviated swearing. We have a swear filter in place so please do not try to bypass this system or your post will probably be removed entirely. This also applies to the use of images and video's.

    *This is a Ferrari forum and as such we would ask that you respect the members here and if you have anything negative to say about current or past team members that is done respectfully and not designed to antagonise other members. If you are not a fan of anything Ferrari then what are you doing here? Is it just to ruffle our feathers? If so then leave, we donít want it and your stay won't be long. That's not to say non-Ferrari fans are not welcome here, but to do so you will need to respect the community here and accept that a lot of us see things through 'Ferrari' tinted glasses, and we make no apologies for doing so!

    Thankyou.

    I agree, this site used to be full of information about the Ferrari F1 team and races. Lets just enjoy the races.

    We should be grateful that this site continues to exist so that we can all share the highs and lows and the passion we have for our team, it's being abused lately and although we are all frustrated and desperate to win a WDC/WCC, there is no excuse for the constant whinging and anger that seems to be appearing. There will always be issues where we don't share the same views, but at least let's try to be adult and constructive rather than antagonistic and insulting.

    +1000 Rob. The forum has become quite negative and people seem to forget it is our love and passion for Ferrari which bought us to this community. It is time to play nice or be handed red cards.

    Nice to see all the positive comments in favor of Ferrari. I agree with all above. We should be here because we all love Ferrari, win or lose. If I wanted to see negative comments I'd be on other forums, which I won't mention the names of. Anyway, positive result for Ferrari. This time luck came our way. We didn't always have it last season. Well done team. I think we kept Mercedes honest today.

    I have yet to meet anyone quite so stubborn as myself and animated by this overpowering passion that leaves me no time for thought or anything else. I have, in fact, no interest in life outside racing cars.

    Ferrari... forever!
    I have been following F1 since the early 70's.... I would love to know how comments would have been thrown around back then with a 20 year gap between titles... or... the turbo era, when Ferrari would be blowing up turbos more often than a chain smoker lighting a cigarette....

    I endured the droughts, and wallowed in the plenty... it is always a distinct pleasure to follow MY team through the good and the bad.

    Been a long time since Iíve posted on here. Still visit the site daily but get disheartened quickly with the way people talk to each other on here and the negativity that has infested the place. Greig and the guys have worked hard over the years to build a site where tifosi can come along and enjoy the insight others have into their beloved team. Itís bad enough being a Ferrari fan in the UK at the min let alone coming on here to find that your fellow supports are turning on each other.

    Hopefully People on here will get back to the mentality of us winning and losing together. Supporting the team rather than lambasting them and each other at any given opportunity.

    While I do believe those who constantly whine and moan do this because they want Ferrari to succeed, this has to stop. Free practice doomsday predictors have to stop. High negativity towards the team, the drivers and fellow forum members has to stop. Its not even called for, the team is at the front( look at mclaren), the drivers are doing well(imagine if it wasnt bottas who put it into the wall, if it was one of our boys, imagine the bashing). I understand people might not be happy with the performance now and then, but they have to be respectfull as negativity discourages new members to join and existing ones to comment or visit more. So think about that before bashing someone or the team.

    Well a Ferrari 1 - 3 certainly made it easy to be positive, I hope it continues even if things were to get a little tough!
    Forza Ferrari !

    @Mods,
    I am not the one to tell you how to do your jobs, but I am feeling that at the very least I can make a friendly suggestion.
    There are rules, just like this one :
    *Avoid personal flaming attacks. If you don't agree with what someone posted, debate their post... not the person that posted it. Baiting of other members is also not welcome on the forums, if your baiting then it will also be considered as flaming.

    *Keep in mind that this website and it's forums are visited by people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Many of which do not appreciate vulgar language. So, the less there is the better the forums are for everyone. If you really must express yourself by swearing then fully * out the swear word. This also applies to abbreviated swearing. We have a swear filter in place so please do not try to bypass this system or your post will probably be removed entirely. This also applies to the use of images and video's.

    *This is a Ferrari forum and as such we would ask that you respect the members here and if you have anything negative to say about current or past team members that is done respectfully and not designed to antagonise other members. If you are not a fan of anything Ferrari then what are you doing here? Is it just to ruffle our feathers? If so then leave, we don’t want it and your stay won't be long.

    I feel that we need people to follow these rules. Warn people, if they keep breaking rules, well..

    I agree with all people here in this thread. Things need to change.
