Only thing I have to say:

Sebastien Vettel dominates again winning almost every race.
I continue to wonder why people watch F1 because it is boring as hell.

Sounds like someone's butthurt because f1fan here made a NASCAR predictions thread. Someone who watches NASCAR like a fat person watches cake doesn't have any room to call Formula 1 boring. I'll tell you what is boring, watching a group of half-overrated drivers run circles around places like Kentucky or Las Vegas while the commentators fap incessantly over them and refer to them as "the best drivers in the world." Even the worst of European track designers can come up with something more original than 95% of the tracks on NASCAR's schedule every year.

My only prediction at this point is that Raikkonen will probably do wonders for Renault

I'd rather watch F1 than 85% of NASCAR, because there's a lot more variety in the tracks, therefore leading to a greater variation in the racing. Also, go watch the Canadian GP from this year, and if you call that race boring, you shouldn't be a motorsport fan.

Believe it or not, there is a race for a position other than for first!

I'm sorry if you don't like that in F1, the best drivers actually win the championship...

Champion: Vettel
Runner Up: Button
Constructors Champion: Red Bull
Runner Up Constructors Champion: McLaren
Reject Of The Year: Kimi Raikkonen
Driver Of The Year: Vettel
Biggest Improvment: Mercedes
Biggest Dissapointment: Kimi Raikkonen
Best New Driver: RRRRRMMMMMNNN GGRRRRRJJJJJNNNNN (Romain Grosjean)
Worst New Driver: Charles Pic
Most Improved Team: Force India
First Time Winners: None
Drivers looking for a ride in 2013: Charles Pic
Best Race: Canada or a race where it rains in the middle of it
Worst Race: India
Any Major News announcements: One or both of the U.S. races will not happen.

I used to have the same opinion, but then I actually watched a Grand Prix. You're the typical hick NASCAR fan, even though you're from the great white north. Motorsports fans like you disgust me. Not to mention you're just some kid being butthurt over a copied thread on a forum like Duffery said.

Barring any major car problems, Red Bull dominates. They keep Webber for '13 because he's a good slave to Vettel. Razz

How about we all shut up and stop insulting each other? Good idea, yes? These are the kinds of posts I'd expect to see in YouTube comments. This is a racing forum, we're supposed to respect all forms of racing, whether we personally like it or not (exceptions made for ARCA). Now, back to the topic at hand.

Champion: Button
Runner Up: Vetel
Constructors Champion: Red Bull
Runner Up Constructors Champion: McLaren
Reject Of The Year: Romain Grosjean
Driver Of The Year: Jenson Button
Biggest Improvment: Mark Webber
Biggest Dissapointment: Romain Grosjean
Most Improved Team McLaren
First Time Winners: N/A
Best Race: Canada
Worst Race: South Korea
Any Major News announcements: New Jersey GP cancelled or postponed.

Maybe I should've done that. That's what I was agreeing with. That being said I don't follow F1 that much because I just don't find it interesting doesn't mean that it's boring. Just means it doesn't interest me enough to watch it.

2011 wasn't as bad as everyone perceives, Vettel won because he is currently the best driver in the field, Hamilton/Massa shenanigans were hilarious, Canada and Monaco were awesome. Couple other good ones that aren't coming to mind/i don't remember seeing cause i fell asleep but can't think of them.

It's not flaming...More like a debate. If you're gonna say it's boring when probably have never watched it...Be ready to back it up.

You did express your opinion, and we all expressed ours in response. If you're too good to play by the rules [/sarcasm], I'd like to point out that nobody's making you stay here.

It was a given that Vettel would dominate in the point standings, because he's a damn good driver paired with the best equipment in the field. A good battle doesn't always have to be for the top spot, and more often than not you'll find one somewhere on the track.

You did express your opinion, and we all expressed ours in response. If you're too good to play by the rules [/sarcasm], I'd like to point out that nobody's making you stay here.

It was a given that Vettel would dominate in the point standings, because he's a damn good driver paired with the best equipment in the field. A good battle doesn't always have to be for the top spot, and more often than not you'll find one somewhere on the track.

Where in the rules does it say you have to like all forms of motorsport? NO WHERE. I'm not a fan of Formula One, because IMO it is boring. And yes, I have watched a grand prix. Numourous ones. I just don't think the series is interesting. I'd prefer to watch a series where more than 5 or 6 drivers have a legitimate shot at winning.

And Zach, I understand nobody is making me stay here. I tend to like this forum and most of the people in it.

Most of the best races I've seen have only had two or three cars that could have a legitimate shot of winning. The only time you ever have more than 5 or 6 drivers in with a shot at winning are superspeedways in NASCAR or in endurance racing.

You don't have to like every form of motorsport, but we do expect you to respect them and those who enjoy them. For example, instead of saying:

I continue to wonder why people watch F1 because it is boring as hell.

You could say something more along the lines of:

Formula One is pretty boring, in my opinion. *insert reasons that back up statement here*

It's not that we don't want you to express your opinions, just do it in a respectful way. The way you put it, you seemed to be more-or-less insulting F1 and it's fans.

The Chinese GP was also pretty awesome.

I was speaking in terms of common sense rules, as in if you speak your mind, especially about a topic you seem to know little to nothing about, you should expect to have to defend your statement. In most cases, a typical NASCAR race only has a couple of drivers that could realistically win aside from the plate tracks, so your reason for disliking F1 is pretty hypocritical. It was pretty rude to try and hijack f1fan's thread just because he made a mistake and posted another NASCAR predictions thread. Maybe someone should have gone into yours and posted "Gee, I wonder why people watch NASCAR, it sucks"

You like IndyCar don't you? With a few exceptions, Dario, Will, and Dixie win the majority of the races. Yet you don't complain about that. I just think you are afraid to admit that you don't like F1 fans turning their noses up at NASCAR. But it sure as hell doesn't help the cause when you do the same to them.

Champion: Sebasitan Vettel, and it will be by at least triple digits)
Runner Up: Fernando Alonso
Constructors Champion: Red Bull, and it won't be close
Runner Up Constructors Champion: Ferrari
Reject Of The Year: Romain Grosjean
Driver Of The Year: Sebastian Vettel. I say he'll get double digits on wins (again)
Biggest Improvment: Kamui Kobayashi
Biggest Dissapointment: Kimi Raikkonen... he'll score points, but, with Grosjean on the team, I say Lotus finishes between 6th and 8th in Constructors points
Best New Driver: Daniel Ricciardo... if only because there isn't that many new guys in F1 this year on reasonable teams that I feel confident in.
Worst New Driver: Charles Pic
Most Improved Team: Catherham. They WILL score points by no more than 10 races into 2012.
First Time Winners: None, but I think Kobayashi and di Resta will have the best shots.
Drivers looking for a ride in 2013: Roman Grosjean, as long as Robert Kubica has no more setbacks, Pastor Maldonado,
Best Race: Either Canada, Japan, Belgium or Monaco
Worst Race: European
Any Major News announcements: Michael Schumacher will announce a 2nd retirement, Kobayashi will get a top/near top ride for 2013

And a final note, PKligBKfan...

Ok. My opinion is that 2011 wasn't very exciting. Hoxwever, I'm happy that being the best actually matters in F1. I think 2012 will be more exciting, Vettel will dominate.

Alright look, everyone is throwing that "You are free to have your opinions and are encouraged to express them, but be ready to defend them!" line around and while I agree with it, it does not mean you need to challenge every differing opinion you see... back off please, Tyson and others have given their reasons and that should be the end of it. If you want to fight over it take it to PMs.


I'm not an admin or moderator of this particular section of the forum, so I apologize if I am going over the line here..... but I thought that it needed to be said.

-------

As for my predictions, I have only a few because I will admit that I don't really watch F1 that much.... but Vettel takes driver's, Red Bull takes constructor's, Vettel wins all but 2-4 of the races. My only bold prediction will be that if the US rounds are run, there will be a surprise winner in one of them.

The most exciting F1 race I've seen was Montreal in '07. Alonso kept making mistakes that shifted control of the race wildly, and then Kubica threw a massive curveball to shake things up. I couldn't sit still it was so good.

but for every other race I think Juan Montoya's words sum it up nicely. he said something like "I watch the first couple of laps and then turn it off, because by then I know who's going to win."

If Tyson had kept his comment to himself, nothing would have been said. You can't expect to post "F1 is boring" in an F1 predictions thread and not have others respond to it. I don't believe anyone was looking to fight with him, so if he's mature he shouldn't have taken offense to our comments.
