F1: Observations And More To Come

by on September 4, 2012

We have gone so long without Formula One during the summer break and now it’s back.  During this time, many of us have had to get creative to bring readers something new and fresh.  Many times we as bloggers forget what a blog is really all about.  It’s not a news site, or a proper sports website, it’s simply a place to express one’s thoughts and observations. 

So what have we observed now that F1 is back?  Here are a few thoughts that we shall expand on over the course of the week leading up to the much-anticipated rematch at Monza this weekend.

The Belgian GP in Spa was a bittersweet welcomed return.  The first corner accident had enormous implications for the title race.  Alonso and Lewis DNF, Button wins, Vettel closes the gap and Kimi leap-frogs.

There is much talk about the safety of the open cockpit given the events of last grand prix.  Could we see F1 cars forever change from 2014 with cockpit bubbles or cages?  The ramifications of creating a structure that could save an F1 driver could very well kill one.

Social Media as a tool and how it’s rarely used properly by those in F1.  Lewis Hamilton and McLaren gave us a good example of how not to employ the powers of Twitter.

Lotus hangs Vacancy sign over Grosjean seat – who might step in during Romain’s one race ban? 

Maldonado gets his wrists slapped again…I’m surprised he can still drive a car after the abuse he has dished out and taken this season.  Is it time for Paster to be put to pasture?

Watch this space as I expand on some of the topics above.

Much more to come soon with Monza just days away.
