I always thought the original Brabham BT46 with those solar panel water cooling thingies was one of the most sensational looking F1 cars ever produced...I'm fairly old too,but haven't given up hope of an F1 career.

I'm offended. *scoff*

Can we have e-motor powered fan cars with next to no wings now?

It looks ideal for clearing snow from the drive, but with an Alfa Romeo 158 you would not be bothered by a bit of snow on the drive.

Well, probably because it's their self-interest. They pay the bills, not us. They kinda owe us nothing.

Ferrari would've been nothing without F1, it owes the sport a tremendous debt.

Can you provide some reasoning to back your assertion?
PS: What about Mercedes?

Ferrari sold cars to go race, without the exposure of F1, Ferrari would never have gotten to where it is now.
Also, Mercedes was massive before Ferrari even existed, they don't need F1 as much as F1 needs Mercedes.
