    Being a Ferrari tifoso is hard work sometimes and not necessarily good for my health, so 23 races is quite sufficient! To have 30 out of 52 weekends of F1 would mean my everyday life would be put on hold, too much even for me!

    To sum it all up, I agree with 30 races if it means Ferrari has a better chance of winning. However, I completely disagree with 30 races if it means Ferrari has less of a chance of winning... :D
    Rest in Peace Leza, you were a true warrior...

    Plus I like that teams can develop and repair cars in the weeks between races.

    What a horrible idea, and i see very few that actually support it. But let's be honest, the more races on the calendar means the more money for the white collars of F1 and Liberty Media. If we add 7 more races, how many are going to be middle eastern because they pay $50 million a year?
    Well said

    I think Stefano means because F1's popularity is so high at the moment they could have 30 races due to the demand...not that they will have 30 races.

    So many great tracks that could have replaced Sochi

    Portugal
    Hockehiem Germany
    Nurburgring Germany
    Magny Cours France
    Mugello Italy
    Turkey
    Malaysia

    All of these make more logistic sense than Qatar. But money talks every time.

    I suspect Wolf of persisting in saying that he has no problem with the power of the ICE to attribute to the chassis the gain(s) that will be made by the ICE reliability update(s)

    I doubt all would not want to host an F1 event. I am sure none want to pay the price though. It would not surprise me if the race went to the highest bidder.

    On these pics us and Redbull have the same RW as both had in Bahrain. So let's wait and see if we have some other spec wings ready to test.

    Im interested to see what each team has done. Its unusual to start the season with tracks that require such different downforce packages, and some teams may not have a low downforce package just yet. I saw Perez's car has been fitted with a low DF wing. Alpine looks to have a low DF wing. Mercedes has cut the top of their upper element off, which is unusual.

    Marko confirmed that they are going to bring a significant update to reduce weight which we will give them couple of tenths.

    How is Qatar better than Russia?

    Qatar is a state sponsor of terrorism giving over $1.1B to Hamas since 2012. ***? They have given $1B to Muslim Brotherhood, another terrorist organization. Qatar has harbored more than 20 high ranking Taliban leaders. The hypocrisy of the FIA is on full display here and its shamefully pathetic.

    And Horner said they have not fully utilized their PU as they still have more performance coming. If we dont step up they are going to blow everyone away for the new regs. Back to 2010 - 2013 season

    Max = Vettel
    Leclerc = Alonso
    Sainz = Massa
    Perez = Webber
    Lewis = Lulu
    Russell = Button

    Same script guys. It in our hands to keep pushing or get out developed like 2010. Remember we started very strong in 2010. I still wish we never agreed to PU freeze!!

    Some Mercedes news in the latest #AMuS episode:

    • Mercedes says the PU is at most for one or two tenths responsible for the deficit

    • The W13 belongs to the heaviest cars next to the RB18

    • Mercedes has a drag issue, a new rear wing will be introduced in Melbourne to fix it

    we already started better than in 2010. Back then, Alonso could only manage P4 in the 2nd race.
