    Tired of seeing Red!!!

    With red being so dominant in the F1 races it is becoming a bit dull to the viewer. Same thing each race, red on pole, red winning the race. Everyone else just scrambling to keep up.

    True, I recognize the accomplishments of red team and am glad for their success, but its dull every race watching the same thing over and over. Perhaps we need some kind of penalty program to even the field? Something similar to balast or limiting the development dollars for teams? But then perhaps that would turn our great sport of F1 into an imitation NASCAR. We DON'T want that!!

    Just airing out a gripe here. I guess you could say I am red with envy.

    i love the sport. yes, it is a little repetitive

    to see ferrari take pole and the win these past 3 races and these past few years, but this is f1. this is what it is all about. everybody blames ferrari for making f1 boring. i think those people are completely retarded. i blame EVERYBODY ELSE for making f1 boring. the idea behind the sport is technological development. yes, ferrari does beat everybody, but that is not their fault. that is their advantage. they work that hard to be a "full year" ahead of williams in aerodynamics. that is what patrick head said when comparing ferrari to williams. so i think that the other teams should get their heads out of their asses, stop bitching, and get to fooking work.

    it's a demo. so guess what the details are.

    If that were true, Toyota should win every race.

    like pilote said, if that were true, toyota would

    win just as much as ferrari and b.a.r. would not be doing this well and have 2 podium finishes in 3 races and both drivers finishing 3rd and 5th. ferrari put money into it years ago, but now they have such good sponsorship that i doubt that ferrari itself is spending 400 million or huge % of the total budget. most of it comes froms sponsors i think. toyota i am not sure about where they get that money. i know they are obviously factory based, but i dont know about % of budget the company actually contributes. i would love to get an inside look at the books of a team.

    it's a demo. so guess what the details are.

    It would be right to say how has the least $ loses

    for all intents Fiat, Mercedes, BMW, Toyota, and soon enough Honda all are willing to spend the same amount of cash.
    Ford will end up spending the same and that leaves out just Sauber, Jordan and Minardi....... <p align=center>

    ferrari sucked for 20 years while spending big $$-

    F1 like they said is cyclical and this domination will end more likely sooner than later. I'm sure the Ferrari fans were pissed during decades of Williams and McLaren domination.

    but never pissed @ Williams or Mclaren

    we were just pissed at Ferrari management for blowing it over and over again.
    That's why all the Ferrari/Schumi hate is is bizarre.<p align=center>

    nah, the top dog will always be a love/hate figure...it's that way in politics, sports, etc. Ferrari fans are no different.

    I think once michael schumacher retires

    the sport will be a lot more competitive. He is obviously unbeatable in his ferrari, hes the best driver. Barrichello has the same exact car and he isnt as dominant. I think Renault will be the team to beat once MS retires.Mark

    but you didn\'t see too much today...

    ...they were so far ahead they got very little tv coverage! It was a great race.

    In the meantime it's great to see a changing of the guard from Williams/McLaren to BAR/Renault as the next best after Ferrari.<p align=center>

    Re: Tired of seeing Red!!!

    I certainly do not mind seeing Ferrari as sucessful as they are. I'm just fed up with all the bull$hit from the Williams team, since they have the best engine in F-1. I want to see BMW on the podium every race, with plenty of wins to take the constructor's.
