Ya what did ever happened with those proposed changes?Haha, we remembered to start the thread before FP1 had started
Anyway, who's ready for a race worse than Monaco. All the history, but it's just as hard to overtake here, it just has straights to make you think they can overtake here. At least at Monaco you know there won't be overtaking, but the walls are close enough that there's always the possibility of a crash and something interesting.
I genuinely cannot remember an interesting dry Italian GP that I have watched ever. The only thing that is interesting is the start into such a tight chicane, but unfortunately, apart from Tonio Liuzzi, the drivers are much better behaved than every online lobby ever.
Anyway, it's time for the "How many drivers will take a grid penalty for an engine change at Monza" sweepstake?
I'm going for 7.
Also, wasn't the circuit layout supposed to have changed like 3 years ago? What happened to that? The layout they proposed looked interesting and showed more promise.

It’s weird, this is the most competitive F1 season in recent memory, but I’m almost over it already. Maybe not over it, but just “meh”. I think it was the summer break that killed momentum for me.
Discussion of F1 on this site is way down, websites like JA on F1 are running articles on MotoGP....for me, it feels like the season has fizzled out. Hopefully an exciting race in the upcoming rounds will rejuvenate me.
I’m not a fan of any one particular team or driver, I could care less who wins. I just want to see good racing, and between DRS, dirty air, and grid penalties, along with two tiered F1, we haven’t really got much of that at all this year. How many laps have Hamilton and Vettel battled on track this year?Really, I find that surprising. Not fizzled for this Ferrari fan and most likely most others. We actually have a shot at the title this year. Of course, the past decade or so has shown that if anyone can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory it will be Ferrari. But I have genuine hope this year, we have the fastest car, best on most circuits yet we still have to play catch up. After years of complete Merc dominance we actually have a battle on our hands and your bored already...what the heck do you want?
