General F1 Discussion / Re: Liberty Wants Spa to "Americanize"
« Last post by Andy B on Today at 09:32:28 AM »
Oh Dear!
I feared this was the way it would potentially go and Miami did nothing for me if I go to a circuit I go for the racing not a heap celeb's who know nothing about F1.
At least on TV it's able to be avoided but that also means not watching live.
I wonder what percentage of "Fans" think the same way or am I an anomaly?  :DntKnw:

The American business model has long been that it's more important to attract new customers than to hold on to existing customers. Nearly all advertising involves "switch to" not "thanks for your business".

General F1 Discussion / Liberty Wants Spa to "Americanize"
« Last post by cosworth151 on June 24, 2022, 03:46:11 PM »
It looks like Spa is under threat from Liberty Media. It isn't glitz enough for them.

"It is true that there was a request from F1 to introduce a greater component of entertainment," Spa-Francorchamps promoter Stijn de Boever, is quoted by Italy's Autosprint. "They said that history is something great but we need more. We decided to listen to them and follow them in the new way of offering Formula events.

"This American way, with all of the entertainment that this entails."

There is a rumor that Spa could become a non-championship round with young drivers in place of the regular driver line-ups.

Seriously, that sounds like a good way to handle the events like Miami & Vegas. Formula 1 can stay a real racing series and Liberty gets its glitz fests. The target market Liberty is trying for with events like Miami & Vegas probably wouldn't notice the difference if they raced 3 year olds in pedal cars.

I think it's pretty clear that barring acts of God Max and R/B are going to cruise to another title. Unfortunately.

Jeri seems to sum up each race so well that I usually don't have much to add.
I was happy for Alpha to get Bottas up into the points.
The quali in the wet was a nice treat as it shook up the field a bit but the race sorted it all out again.
Leclerc did a decent job coming from the back but did not slice thru the field as I thought he would.
The Ferarri did not have what it takes this weekend.

Pretty much sums it up.

One possible zero: Ferrari

I can't help feeling they could have somehow won this race given all the safety cars. Specifically, maybe they should have put sainz on mediums at the last pit with 20 odd laps to go, five of which behind the safety car.
