What a farce

Well the US Grand Prix has become a farce as only the 6 Brigstone cars are racing and the rest have dropped out due to unsafe Michellin tires.

imo motor sports have all become boring,(especially those where they circle around some circuit), since its all about the ones having faster cars. Nothing happens thats entertaining :confused:

Aye, t'was a farce. Frankly, no-one with influence acquitted themselves at all well during the whole fiasco, especially the FIA, and quite frankly all those people that paid to see a weekend of F1 racing should get their money back.

Without knowing what went on behind closed doors it is difficult to aportion blame to any specific individual or group apart from the FIA as they had the final call on whether or not a race could go ahead. That said, there should be some real soul-searching in the teams and F1-racing inc. to decide just what to do next.

I would not be surprised if the US promoters sue, ticket payers sue and F1 never goes back to the US because they are not welcome.

Something like over half the field had their tires recalled by the company hours before the race or something, so only 6 people raced.

Er, okay. So why all the hubub? Big deal it was one race. Don't racing cup series group things have about 40000 races?

I prefer watching races at the local track. "hit-to-pass" rules.....the whole thing is 30 laps, and if you do 3 without hitting another car you are disqualified.
