The same Big Three with two, maybe three teams just failing to join them.

I don't know what it is about the Red Bull era. I'm no fan of Ferrari but when they were the team in the sun, it didn't detract from the enjoyment too much. I've never been so ambivalent about F1 in my life as I am now with Red Bull's domination.

It's not their drivers. I quite like them, I enjoy watching them. It's something about Red Bull the team that turns me off.

Perhaps I'm an F1 snob. It might be something about an energy drink company buying success as opposed to a racing team that has a competition heritage.

Not a fan of Vettel, but I have a lot of time for Webber. I wouldn't mind so much if it were him leading the table.

For me, the problem with Red Bull the team is summed-up in one name: Helmut Marko. He seems to embody the negative energy they exude.

ps I agree wrt rules. They longer they stay the same, the more it favors the elite teams.

It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this.
