Manor staff reveal 2017 F1 car design
Im not against ferrari payment as a loyalty bonus, but its ridiculous they get more than the bottom 5 teams just for turning up to melbourne, what i dont get is why that 70m isnt shared out between williams (1978) & mclaren (1966)
Bernie/max - Ferrari youve been here 67yrs & we want to reward you with £70m
Williams - what about us we've been here 40yrs
Mclaren - what about us we've been here 51yrs
Bernie/Max - why do you deserve anything, youve been with us for 40/50yrs. How is that loyalty
Ferrari make very famous sports cars that are known the world over. Williams make bugger all and are not seen to attract an audience. Mclaren have made some nice and famous cars but I'm willing to bet you say Mclaren and Williams to the average none motorsport fan then they'll look at you blankly. Say Ferrari they might be willing to have a look.
Not saying I agree with the payment but that is why it is there. F1 and Ferrari both benefit from each others brands.
If there is a sport which is producing something that appeals broadly, then Ferraris presence would be beneficial but not essential. If redistributing thd prize money led to more competitive teams, popularity would increase regardless of whether Ferrari is there or not imho.
Personally I get the feeling Stuttgart would like all the cars on the grid to be Merc powered so they could control the exact result of every race whilst pretending to us that it's a really exciting "show".
At least with Ferrari they Don't pretend they want to entertain us or that they are on the fans side.
RasputinLives. Ferrari are only interested in winning. However inadvertently it's good for the sport, because they have to compete in order to do so.
reminds me we had many problems in F1 few years ago of how much we liked F1 races in 2012 when perez nearly won in his sauber at Malaysia & Monza, Maldonado won for Willams & Hulkenburg shouldve won at Interlagos. sometimes all you need is the odd giantkilling
(And for winning the League Cup)
