New Honda F1 V-6 motor

This is NOT a wailing V-10 or V-8. The new V-6's are taking away a very important aspect of the F-1 experience.

F1 and the vettel train has been difficult to watch this year.
at least the new engine and rule changes have the chance to shake things up a bit.

Can't wait to hear what weber has to say about red bull once his f1 career comes to an end.

After that one year that the two were competing for the championship with alonso, weber has been nowhere near vettel's pace. Is this vettel's dominance or is it team orders and inforior car for weber???

While, I am a die hard McLaren fan that happens to be taking a year off hiatus. I have no problem with Vettel and Red Bull at the top. Both the man and the machine are simply the best that there is. It is not their fault that the other manufacturers can't compete. It is a whole lot better than the Ferrari / Schumacher years where the majority of wins were by contrived racing and rules adjustments by the FIA. "Remember, when Schumacher accidently stopped his car in the pit entrance at Monaco to claim the pole?". I saw Vettel's first F1 race and he was astounding then for being in the car for the first time for BMW. I am totally sick of the cry babies' like Alonso's whine every weekend. Equal cars and Alonso would still lose to Vettel. But, it would be someone else's' fault for sure. Many are saying "wait until next year". But, with Adrian Newey's talent at designing race cars. There is no reason not to believe that he will see advantages the others will miss.

I don't have a problem with it either. Without a doubt the best car and driver combination is winning the championship. To be honest, the whining has died down as I think the others have accepted that fate.

I certainly disagree with so called F1 fans that BOO vettel on podiums.


I just think it is a much more interesting watch when two three and four are fighting for the championship at the end of the year. And races themselves aren't won by minutes with little to no lead changes.

But as you said, the Schumacher years were still much worse. I guess I've been spoiled by the racing over the last half decade up to these last couple years.
