A functioning atlasf1 server.

rolf123 is exposed as Michael Heseltine.
Less mind numbingly boring web articles.
More hysterical, rage inducing web articles.
NBCSN coverage is palatable.
SKYF1 shows IndyCar races.
Continuation of the wonderful NASCAR and IndyCar threads here.
Jp actually makes it to a race this time.

Anyone else but Vettel for WDC
Lotus to give Kimi the car to fight for the championship
No more podium interviews (or at least improve them)
Better timed ad breaks for Australian TV
Austin GP to be a success again
A really exciting breakthrough year for a rookie driver

Merecedes to build a rubbish car. I will not be happy if they build a good one just after MSC has left.
Hekki in as Kimi's team mate with a good Lotus car
Button to beat Perez and outscore Hamilton
Button VS Vettel for title
Massa allowed to race Alonso
Senna and Grosjean Out
Shorter DRS Zones on some of the tracks.

1. Pirelli not to do favors to owners/teams/drivers by creating tyres to benefit anyone in particular, but keep a consistent characteristic from year to year.

2. Stewards/FIA not to do favors to owners/teams/drivers but improve the overtaking rules and enforce more consistent stewarding. Few things put me off F1 than unfair rulings (or non-rulings).

3. Improved TV production, and although vastly improved last years, still a loong way to go. (keywords: Live Action On Track)

- Raikkonen in a car which can consistently win races to fight for the title.
- The top teams build a car which are all pretty equal in speed.
- Kobayashi to get a seat in F1
- Massa to put up a title challenge.

A different world champion.

What he said. Red Bull destroyed what was shaping up to one of the most memorable seasons in several years.

- All 13 teams capable of fighting for points.
- At least five teams regularly fighting for podiums and wins.
- Felipe Massa continuing like he ended this season.
- Grosjean and Maldonado finally getting their act together.
- Kobayashi with a surprise podium.
- Announcement of a fifth and sixth engine supplier for 2014, one of them a manufacturer.
- Proper flags at the podium ceremony.

And for the unrealistic stuff:
- Teams deciding to massively overhaul aero rules for 2015.
- Teams, FIA and FOM agreeing on a budget cap and changed distribution of revenues.
- A 14th team joining for 2014 as a result of the that.

- Bottas to succeed in his rookie season

- Lotus to produce a more competitive & consistent car so that Räikkönen would be able to fight for the title.

- More consistent penalties

- Ferrari to lose WCC & WDC again, unless it's massa who wins it. He's suffered from being forced to the slave part long enough.;) )

- Barichello not to return to F1.. Please we need fresh blood.

:rolleyes: Pathetic. Considering the title race went to the absolute wire RB destroyed nothing, I'm guessing had RB not taken a step and had Alonso cruised to the title by 40 points it would have been memorable then?

Mercedes build a fast car and LH gets some good luck for a change. He won't need any help to do the rest

I'd like a different world champion as well. Vettel is an amazing driver, but when someone achieves schumacher-esque dominance it really turns off all but their fans from the sport. Of course, that's exactly what he wants, the more hated you are by others, the better you're probably doing. Still though, anyone but Seb WDC would really make a nice change :).

Red Bull, Ferrari, McLaren, Lotus and Mercedes all fighting for the titles.
No tyre lottery
Kobayashi in a decent F1 car

Smh @ people wanting to see Vettel or Hamilton in a sh*t car.

This is what I want, right? In that case...

* Removal of all limits placed on KERS.
* No DRS.
* No parc fermé regs.
* No "both compounds" rule.
* No "start on tyres from qualifying" rule.
* Customer cars to be allowed.
* Freeing up of the technical regulations.
* More even distribution of prize money.
* No anthems on the podium.
* Single one hour qualifying session with unlimited laps allowed.
* Return to 10-6-4-3-2-1 points system.
* Removal of wings altogether or at the very least a spec low-downforce airfoil cross section.
* No more tarmac runoffs.
* Return to proper flags on the podium.
* No radios.
* Removal of testing restrictions.
* Get rid of the franchise model and allow anyone that meets the technical regs to try and qualify. Bring back prequalifying if necessary.
* Get someone with an ounce of common sense to rewrite the rulebook and get rid of the colossal number of grey areas.
* Single car teams allowed.

Not going to happen though.

So you essentially want the regs to be be like the 1990s?
