Two things happened this weekend that pissed me right off about the state of f1 and if they get fixed I'll know liberty are on to a winner
First off there was the Bottas at the lights which reminded me that this red lights going out thing is nonsense. It should be red then green, I know it's because of reaction times and can see something going off quicker than coming on. But traffic lights, cartoons and computer games all have red to green. It's the will of the people. Also,clarification that Austria has an extra corner this year because reasons despite no actual track change, so what was corner two is now three, or one. No one cares. Numbering corners is THE WORST thing that has ever happened in f1. Circuits used to have inspirational and exciting names for corners, the tobacconists , maggots, the bus stop! Now it's just dreary numbers that make every circuit an identikit off the rack humdrumodrome. Ooh this turn three is like last weeks turn four, really? Fuck off.
Everything should be named and quick before sponsors get in on the action
And actually that's what annoyed me most this weekend. Heineken. Three things . Not only was there a terrible CGI Jackie Stewart advert in which they fail to make him look young next to some black and white Heineken bottles (as an aside, he's so wily im surprised in the 60s he didn't get footage of him with every possible brand for future advert rights). Anyway then we see him refusing a Heineken from a tray because he's driving but since when does he drive anywhere? It's stupid. Also the billboard that had a Heineken bottle appearing from the ground and making it look as though there was a rocket taking off every. Single. Lap. Impressive, great even, but terrible in a dull race because I kept thinking ooh a rockets taken off, that’ll liven things up.
And the helicopter looked terrifying.
Don't worry, I have a solution
Green lights, corner names, no stupid adverts. There you're done. You want more? Fans get to name the corners. I vote that at silver stone the first corner be renamed to k-mags fuckkk thisss
