1 like = 1 unpopular opinion

  1. Ayrton Senna is NOT the greatest driver in F1 history.
  2. The second Red Bull seat in 2015 should’ve gone to Jean-Eric Vergne, not Daniil Kvyat
  3. Jenson Button was overrated during his career (Sorry JB fans)
  4. The V6 Hybrids have a nice sound (Just need to made simpler- remove the MGU-H & more cheap with 8 copies to be allowed per season)
  5. Liberty Media is getting too much praise (need to re-negotiate many cable network TV deals)
  6. It’s McLaren’s fault for their problems (insisted on Honda on making a new engine concept last minute before 2015 to fit size zero car)
  7. Mika Hakkinen’s success came mostly due to Adrian Newey. Had DC as his team-mate
  8. Nelson Piquet Jr. was treated badly at Renault and deserved better
  9. Manor deserved to be forced out of F1 due to poor management, mounting debts and dodgy working practices
  10. Every young driver must be forced to do at least one season of Formula 2 (8 races minimum) and the age limit raised to 20.
  11. The Halo will do nothing to damage F1’s chase for new viewers
  12. The FIA should have forced Fernando Alonso to take Nico Rosberg’s seat for 2017 and compensated McLaren for their loss
  13. An engine freeze should be introduced for 2018, with special dispensation for Honda and Renault to improve their power units
  14. Before 2015, Fernando Alonso was one of the luckiest drivers in F1
  15. Kimi Raikkonen would’ve become a double world champion had he stayed at McLaren for 2007 & 2008
  16. James Allen was a fantastic commentator for ITV F1 (2001-2008)
  17. Super Aguri should’ve never had their application to enter F1 accepted by the FIA. Always used customer cars and ran out of money.
  18. Toyota would’ve become championship contenders had they stayed after 2009, especially with the hybrid regulations.
  19. Nico Hulkenberg & Sergio Perez are overrated.
  20. Max Verstappen will become the Stirling Moss of his generation and fail to become a WDC.
  21. Williams should sell their team to Lawrence Stroll
  22. McLaren should have picked Kevin Magnussen & Stoffel Vandoorne to be their driver line-up in 2015, saving money and a certain ego.
  23. FIA should retire number 13 in honour of Pastor Maldonado, but also to remind devil-may-care rookies how not to be a F1 driver
  24. F1 doesn’t need new teams. It needs investment for the current teams it has.
  25. Juan Pablo Montoya was extremely overrated.
  26. Jacques Villeneuve was underrated, but did himself no favours in his career.
  27. In future F1 seasons, drivers should spend one half driving for a top team, then the second half for a bottom team
  28. Monza is one of the worst tracks on the calendar.
  29. F1 qualifying should be decided by an Ouija board.
  30. Jolyon Palmer was a future WDC in the making.
  31. Marcus Ericsson would have clocked up a podium finish by now if & given him driving tips.
  32. Every track should have a random sprinkler system to jazz up boring races.
  33. Sebastian Vettel was an overwhelmingly-deserving 4 time WDC in spite of his Red Bull car advantage
  34. Mark Webber & Rubens Barrichello would’ve won the 2003 Constructor’s championship for Williams-BMW
  35. If Fernando Alonso had picked Mercedes in 2013, he would’ve only won 1 WDC against Nico Rosberg
  36. Filming live F1 driver briefings for Youtube is a bad idea and pointless anyway.
  37. F1 should introduce a reverse grid races for flyaway events (Top 12 backwards) with 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 points
  38. Alex Yoong deserved a second full season of F1 (serious)
  39. Car manufacturers (inc. Ferrari) should be banned from owning teams outright
  40. Sim racing does not improve a driver’s skills as much as some believe.
  41. Kimi Raikkonen is one the sport’s Top 16 greatest drivers.
  42. Lewis Hamilton will NOT win this weekend’s US GP, nor will he seal the drivers’ title.
  43. Kevin Magnussen will destroy Grosjean’s career in 2018, so Romain will leave F1 as a result
  44. Felipe Massa would have had an amazing rap career.
  45. F1 cars should be ran on LPG fuel
  46. The V12 engine sound by Lambo, Honda & Ferrari were overrated
  47. Alain Prost is unpopular as his intelligence allowed him to perfect a car better than anyone since his heyday & left rival fans envious
  48. 2000s is the best decade of F1
  49. Mark Webber was the best driver in 2006 despite his unreliable Williams Cosworth
  50. The best days of Giancarlo Fisichella were already gone when he paired with Alonso at Renault for 2005
  51. I would love to be proven wrong on this, but there will never be a female driver starting a F1 race ever again.
  52. Baku’s street circuit has the potential to be one of F1’s favourite venues.
  53. Shanghai is a tougher & more rewarding circuit than Spa or Suzuka
  54. F1 is still a sporting spectacle, despite artificial ideas such as DRS
  55. The fans will always prove to be slaves to the whims of the FIA & Liberty Media, regardless of how much we protest.
  56. F1 will still remain popular even when all of the races become exclusive to cable TV
  57. Jim Clark would be racing in BTCC had he existed today.
  58. Grooved tyres need to come back to F1
  59. 2002 was a better season than many realise. It motivated everyone to continue watching F1 because there was no way 2003 could be worse!
  60. F1 fans know they’re talking nonsense when they complain a rivalry or an aggressive driver is ruining the sport through poor conduct.
  61. The statistical side of F1 is a major reason why many watch the sport. The engineering, however, isn’t.
  62. Pitch sensitivity, and a driver’s ability to counteract it, is still fundamental to their lap times despite vast sensors & telemetry
  63. Most of the midfield drivers in the 1970s & 1980s would struggle in today’s junior series or any major racing series
  64. Adrian Newey is overrated as a technical director. Excellent chief designer, but questionable general leadership.
  65. Ayrton Senna is popular due to F1’s Godwin’s Law: his death deified him, whilst Prost & Schumacher have villainous legacies.
  66. Creating conspiracy theories adds vigour and anticipation to awaiting races due to the sport’s clandestine nature
  67. Conspiracies about the FIA’s favouritism towards Ferrari is unjust and often unsubstantiated FERRARI INTERNATIONAL ASSISTANCE
  68. Criticism of how Lance Stroll has used his father’s money to build his career is due to envy and a hatred of perceived nepotism
  69. provide a necessary yardstick for the quality required to compete in F1.
  70. LMP1/WSC sportscars have far more in common with F1 in both a historical & present sense than Indycar ever has.
  71. You can never judge a youngster’s true talent from their karting success (re: Giorgio Pantano)
  72. Kimi Raikkonen isn’t actually as humble as some credit him for. If he was, he would’ve been forced out after 3 years driving for Sauber.
  73. Jenson Button was a very politically calculating & manipulative person (2004/5 Honda/Williams contract & Martin Whitmarsh at McLaren)#
  74. Istanbul Park is one of the most overrated ex-F1 venues. Other than Turn 8, that’s it!
