    Things may have settled down well before September. Should F1 boycott everywhere that has fought anyone?

    The better question is should F1 be racing in Russia, China, the middle east etc.

    The mighty dollar creates lots of problems, or rather the pursuit of it does.

      A reminder. I'm not conversing with you until the start of the 2022 season, and most likely, not then either. Just done with all of the bull excrement.

          I couldn't agree more. It's absurd to expect our US members to put up with this ongoing crap.

            I don't understand what you mean.

            Liberty are American. They have spoken about bringing in fake things to spice up 'the show', things I am not in favour of. I'm not ranting, merely pointing out my opinion on reverse grids and the like

            I think I can make a strong case that major American sports care about the show.

            What exactly are US members of SCI having to 'put up with' when I say that? Mightn't some of them agree with my opinions? Even if they don't how does my expressing of these opinion affect them more than, say, somebody from France?

            If somebody posted here about British teams or drivers in some form, this would not affect me at all.

            I don't get it.....

              Sometimes I have to remind myself that the stuff you and I see on social media is generated by a very tiny number of people compared to the global audience
              Do you mean as in the color of his skin?

                Absolutely. Without even thinking about it. Should already be done!

                    Sports/entertainment may seem like trivial things (compared to fuel/food etc), but if you take these small pleasures from people they will feel the pain. Tell someone that they have to eat baloney sandwiches instead of steak for a while and they're not going to like it, but they'll get by. Take away their football or motor racing and now we're talking about an entire new kind of hurt.

                      • The Russian race has not been cancelled.


                        • The statement by F1 media does not clearly say it will be cancelled. The new agencies such as BBC, Sky, ESPN, ect. are reporting based upon more detailed discussions that it has been cancelled.


                          • Do they quote sources?

                              Formula 1 statement on the Russian Grand Prix

                              The FIA Formula 1 World Championship visits countries all over the world with a positive vision to unite people, bringing nations together.

                              We are watching the developments in Ukraine with sadness and shock and hope for a swift and peaceful resolution to the present situation.

                              On Thursday evening Formula 1, the FIA, and the teams discussed the position of our sport, and the conclusion is, including the view of all relevant stakeholders, that it is impossible to hold the Russian Grand Prix in the current circumstances.


                              • That is the FIA statement, I meant do the BBC etc quote sources when they use the word cancelled following ''more detailed discussions''.?
