In Formula 1, everything is nice and pretty. Sometimes, twenty drivers squabble like Roman soldiers on the racetrack for about two hours every other Sunday. But everything is quickly forgiven when these sweaty gladiators leave the cockpit. Whatchu say? Who mentioned the FISA – FOCA war?!
Did you catch that? We, as a racing-loving community, love to scream at the top of our lungs that Formula 1 is motorsport’s top category. Let me laugh! Hahaha! 14 years ago, F1 ruined its reputation and heritage for good when it hosted its own “race of shame”. A Grand Prix that should never had seen the light of the day.
Ask a Formula 1 fan about the first Grand Prix held in the Middle East and he’ll give you this self-confident answer: “2004 Bahrain GP”. Even though he’s absolutely right, and besides the fact that he’s showing an untolerable air of superiority, his answer hides an untold story… And it’s time to pull the blinds on that.
