I feel as though in NASCAR night races should be ran only on concrete surfaced race tracks like Bristol, Dover and Martinsville (partial concrete) because concrete is hardly effected by changes in temperature. Asphalt dramatically changes in temperature and grip based upon weather conditions which are hardly if at all changed over the course of a night.
I'm not sure if these changes effect a Formula 1 race as much as they do a NASCAR race. If so, I'd rather the races be during the day as opposed to at night unless F1 someday runs on a concrete race track, or unless a night race helps a great number of fans watch the race live. (IE: A weekday race or a race in a time zone where Sunday afternoon is the middle of the night in Europe).
Kimi will get blown away if he joins Alonso at Ferrari. Falling off boats drunk may be sufficient to make everyone apparently love him, but it doesn't make the car go quicker and if I had to pick a driver that Kimi was most similar to then it would be Nick Heidfeld, albeit Kimi's a smidgen faster.
Kimi isn't the blisteringly quick driver he once was. His consistency is now his strong point, something Ferrari will enjoy when going for the Constructors title. Is he as consistently as quick as Fernando? Not sure, I guess we will find out, unless Fernando is going home?
Well I don't really see how "falling off boats drunk" would make the car slower.
In F1 there is perception of reality and then there is the reality. I doubt the two have so much in common. Just because a driver doesn't make a big number of himself and what he does doesn't make him less good.
Maybe Alonso needs to try a new approach with ferrari since his "not falling off boats drunk" approach clearly doesn't work?
No; the point I make there is that Kimi is well liked because he does things off track that make seem likeable. When you like someone or something you develop a natural bias so the perception of reality is that Kimi is some kind of super hero driver when he's actually Nick Heidfeld.
