Often Wrong, But Never In Doubt

by Gian-Piero Maccagno


Back in the day Charlie JONES, who mainly gained prominence announcing American football, was pressed into service announcing Formula One for the U.S. audience. He was clearly out of his element and replaced after two races.
Most memorably he mistook the formation lap for the start of the race. "Oh, and they've started". Oh how we laughed.
He also suggested that minnow Minardi was 'due' for a win based on their barren past record.
Oh, I wish it were so.
The season so far has been B-O-R-I-N-G.
Three races and three Mercedes 1 - 2.
This was supposed to be Ferrari's year. After all they won the pre-season championship.
Or at least they were to be more competitive.
But again mechanical woes and strategic errors (i.e. forcing Sebastian VETTEL past Charles LECLERC in China) have put paid to the Scuderia's championship so far.
And the squabbling mid-field was supposed to be closer.
But again the grandees (Mercedes, Ferrari & Red Bull) lapped the entire field with Daniel RICCIARDO in the Renault finishing seventh, one lap down.
And China was supposed to be a 'DRS Fest' with passing made so simple it might become boring. Think Nascar.
The only on track action we saw was 'bumpy cars'. If that was my idea of racing I'd be watching the aforementioned American domestic series.
Track and tv audiences have been up this year. But for how much longer.
I guess I'm supposed to remain excited about F1 because Pierre GASLY took the Fastest Lap in Shanghai.
Of course I'll continue to watch. But something needs to change.
Back-to-back drivers and constructors championships needs no further comment. By the numbers. LEWIS HAMILTON won it all with 10 wins, 11 poles, 8 fastest laps for 381 points. NICO ROSBERG had a good season with 6 wins, 7 poles, 5 fastest laps for 322 points but lots of them were gathered when the season was off boil, the championship already won. Going into the third season with the same rules normally sees the field bunch up as the learning curve flattens. That doesn't’t seem to be the case with Mercedes in 2016. They were not the fastest in testing. Certainly near the top of the field. But the number of laps they put in! Triple race distance; no problem. Both cars ran like metronomes, clicking in the laps. Toto Wolff was telling the world ‘Ya, we have the speed. But we work on the reliability’. Unless his hip-hop career interferes Lewis looks to repeat. Sadly, Nico just doesn’t seem to be able to take that last step. If he does and a real fight at the front develops, head games and all, we could be in for a barn-burner o
