Aero - If you don't see the posts and report, or your fellow forumites don't report them - how do we get to see that you find them to be out of order? You're quote right too..the 3 lettered mod
This ought to be a self managing place full of intelligent adults who are capable of engaging in an acceptable way.
We manage it when walking through town, or at the shops...but sometimes on ehre are we forgetting how to be civil, respectful etc?
Report it. We will have a look at it - maybe something will get done, or maybe it won't. That will not depend on anyone in the mod team having a bias towards a team. That would be self defeating and lead to accusations of bias....
FWIW - If I would have to declare any interest in a team - Who would I want to win, all else being equal... I'll dump my brains so you can get a flavour of it - maybe it bioggles you that you don't need a "team" for this racing lark to be enjoyable.
If a team could pull a win out of nowhere in Brazil?
Williams. Be great if they stopped being so poor! Grew up with them being amazing and so I think if I had a favourite it would be them.
I like Renault/Alpine as I appreciate their stubborn attitude in persisting in the competition. Alonso is remarkable in still having 95% of his pace. There were few who used to drag the 99% from the shitbox car for 99% of the time. I thikn he was closest to Schumi in balance of talent. Not the outright fastest but was consistent. Ocon needed to really put manners on Fernando and I suspect Pierre will have his measure next year...
hmm - Used to like Jordan, didn;t like Spyker/Midland or the later, post corruption Force India. Aston is fully meh. Could not care less about them as it is all false tits and trout pout. Nothing to it.
Alpha Tauri aka Minardi were very cool when they were rolling with Alonso and Marques / Webber /Yoong. Can't say that since Toro Rosso died and they are a fashion brand that I can find myself bothered for them but I would like to see Yuki do well. He is cool.
Red Bull - Enjoyed their tech skills in the coanda years. The threads on here were also excellent. ( as was the 'dead zone/ F duct) I am a Honda fan ever since the WIlliams/Lotus Hondas back in 1987 - Nigel Mansell and Nelson Piquet in the Williams left an impression on me. Am happy to see Honda doing well. Can't find myself interested in energy drinks but recognise their excellence. Max is obviously a talented dude and some of his radio amuses me. Suspect he'll be more likeable as he gets older. Sergio - am glad he has the chance as he was shat on in McLaren back in the day so good he has this prime team opportunity
Sauber - they were also great but since they went Blue and nearly went bust and the false Alfa...no, not a fan. Exciting to see how Audi might change them. couldn't even think who drives for them these days, so anonymous and lacking in direction.. Ahhh Zhou! I want him to do well but he needs to beat Bottas..and that isn;t happening. Liking the Bottas 3.0 - he is more genuine and showing more easily understood speed in this crap car.
McLaren - yep - was not really a fan but I always loved Senna. Enjoyed Hakkinnen in his pomp and the MP4-20 was a lovely car. Sterile though. Like Lando and Daniel so happy to see them do well.
Merc - sterile and stupendously boring when winning all the time. Bottas was wasted and Lewis was an machine but for me..didn't ever become a fan but cannot knock his amazing pace at times. George is lacking charisma but I like his speed - be good when that car is not a (relative) dog
Ferrari - lol- had to think who I;d not mentioned. They are not so much special name for me - respect their history bubt disagree with any historical payments they received ( has that now gone under cost cap?)
I would like Ferrari to win some more though - they must drive their fans mad with the constant dropping of the ball. I like both Charles and Carlos - they seem to be good lads and deserve some success - Carlos more so for the driving in most of the teams on the grid - dedicated chap
HAAS - not a fan of the rules that allows them to go shopping and come in. They will never win the championship as long as I have a hole in my bum so why bother...what is the motivation? Can't become engaged with them because they make no sense - saying that - if there was a chance of a race win then I would be glad to see it. Be cool if Mick didn;t have his career ruined by no challenge from Mazepin last year and now being trounced by Magnussen. Kev is a dude - be great if he got a shot.
Overall - competition is needed and I have been watching and been engaged as a proper geek for over 30 years..so some of the massive fandom of teams (new teams...like RB/Merc) - don't get it. Teams also come and go. There is every chance that Merc might leave again, or RB decides to quit. Merc was BAR Honda 20 years ago... RB was Jaguar.
So.. put that in your pipes people. Am too old for this bias crap.
