Well…Jezza is right, it is wrong to continually pursue fossil fuels…and its tome someone had the knackers to do something real about it..hybrids..pah…cost more in carbon to make than u get back..and they are, like , a patch of turd on a wound, so it’ll get messier..!
Lets go electric…electric car F1…..I mean..yup, no noise cept swoosh and tyres…..I mean renewable charge only…not from the ‘grid’… I mean lets get into it..our grandchildren….or even our kids might thank us later…or maybe we’ll ssay fuggit were ok jack….?

What are you talking about? Imagine you go to all the bother to make it electric. You come up with a clean source to run the cars. Well done. You still have the issue of flying the cars and equipment all the way around the world. How do you get over that? What about all the little parts that’s made in china with no thought to the environment. It will be a long time before F1 is ready to become green. This is all assuming that global warming is real…

Schumacher is going to win, and it is going to be great! Second place will be a three way tie between Vitaly Petrov, Button and Hamilton. That’s the inside scoop anyway.

comment 5 is so stupid how can you have an electric f1 car, that would ruin the sport. Maybe biofuel or hydrogen some day but NEVER electric

F1 will stay with Internal Combustion, or as was suggested by some teams they could go to jet engines

That airborne crash was a bit like Australia 2001 when Jacques Villeneuve driving for BAR was caught out by BMW’s Ralf Schumacher and the debris flying from his car sadly killed a marshal.
