Ruslan we started in 1950 with 1 British manufacturer, ERA, which was used by 4 teams together with another 3 British registered teams who used non-British cars. There was also Cooper-JAP which had a British chassis powered by a USA engine and run by a USA team.
My support is agnostic to geography and I think that's likely the case to more than a minority of forum members.
So it does not strike you as odd that there are 8 votes for Williams and only one for Ferrari. Do you think we would see the same vote totals in an Italian forum?
I would suggest the lack of love for Ferrari comes more from it recent driver line ups and attitude rather than to do with them being Italian.
It also doesn't strike me as odd that there are 12 votes for "British" (by your reckoning) teams and 18 for non-British (by your reckoning) teams.
Stat that one for me.
Ferrari are also loathed because they seems to think they are F1 as well as get some $50m royalty payment a year
At the bottom in general were
Ferrari - reasons already explained
Red Bull - their shameful treatment of Renault was pathetic and subsequent whining how they were getting beat every week and it was not fair
Sauber - poor management - how do you end up with signing 4 drivers all with valid racing contracts for two seats ??!!!
Lotus (Team Enstone)- poor management - the owners Genii capital crippled the team to the point of almost being closed down with bailiffs chasing them for owed money for unpaid tax , engine bills and anything else Bernie could get his hands on
So it is not purely down to nationality of teams
Both Italian teams languishing at the back.
You know I'm British and proud to be so but it's not why I voted Williams, for me they are one of the last privateer teams that came good and showed the 'bigger and better' teams how it was done.
I have never followed a British driver as you know, Villeneuve (Canadian), Alonso briefly (Spanish) and now Vettel (German) and I'm developing a liking for Leclerc (French). So my choices don't go by loyalty to my countrymen, they go by people who inspire me at the time be that drivers or teams. I assume many others are the same in their opinions.
I can honestly say I don't have a favorite or even particuarly a team I don't like.
I would like to see Renault do well and Redbull Honda in 2019, but that is more for the good of the sport to improve F1 as opposed to them being my favorites.
I so hope you're right. I want Ferrari to do well only because Vettel is there, I can't want Hamilton to do well, I just don't have it in me!!
Angellica myself and vintly have a long running bet on whether he will at some point in his career or not.
I’ll admit that the latest noise on Hammy’s future may give you some hope for your otherwise dead-end throw-away rash-thinking bet, but hope is all it is my friend, hope is all it is.
How could he not drive for the red team eventually huh, huh?
