When a step backwards is called a step forwards

The FIA seems to think F1 fans will love already puny 2.4L engines being replaced by 1.6L engines; V8 engines being replaced by V6 engines; 18.000RPM reduced to 15,000RPM.

The only possible way this 2014 engine swap could be considered a “step forwards” is when considering the FIA originally pushed for 1.6L, straight four, 12,000RPM engines… to have been introduced in 2013.

It’s a step forward from that dud asshat proposal.

In real terms, it’s still a step backwards.

This is Formula One. If I wanted efficiency, I’d watch the Prius Grand Prix.

What? There isn’t one?

The former Ferrari  – FERRARI! – team manager Jean Todt, now head of the FIA, for pushing what is essentially the antithesis to F1, is beyond disappointing.

F1 supremo, Bernie Eccleston, is at least making inroads.

Hang in there, Bernie.The AGW debate from the warmist side is becoming ever more base.*

    One day an Aussie, an American, and a Canadian walked into the pub together. They proceeded to each buy a pint of Longwood Extra Special Bitter. Just as they were about to enjoy their beverage three flys landed, one in each pint, stuck in the beer’s head.

    The Aussie pushed his beer away from him in disgust.

    The American fished the offending fly out of his beer and continued drinking it as if nothing had happened.

    The Canadian also picked the fly out of his drink, held it out over the beer and then started yelling “SPIT IT OUT, SPIT IT OUT YOU BASTARD!!!!”
