Formula 1 Survey 2006

Ah, if there’s one thing that’ll get me out of bed and onto the couch at 4:30 in the morning, it’s Formula 1. ‘course, that was before I had a Media Centre, but I still pretend I’m watching it live these days!

Digression alert! Uh, there’s another Formula One survey being run this year. I’m not exactly sure what the results of last year were, or what they were used for, but the new qualifying format was more fun to watch than a couple of the races, and it’s great to have tyre changes back in the pitstops.

If you’re an F1 fan, go fill out the survey, shape the sport the way you want it.

It didn’t ask directly about the frozen engine specs for 2008-11… wonder how popular that’s going to be…


Update: Well, cover me in ointment and call me topical! The news did the rounds shortly after posting that “Microsoft MES” (MES is understood to be Mclaren Electrical Systems) will supply standardized Engine Control Units for Formula 1.

This caused quite a funny outpour (at least, I laughed at many of the bits in the top half, then it got a little repetitive) over at pitpass!
