The Site for F1 Aficionados
Since 1996 the work of just one F1 enthusiast, Formula One Art & Genius is a tribute to the passion, heroism, glory and tragedy that for seven decades have made Grand Prix motor racing the world's greatest stage for drivers, their machines and the people who admire both.

An Outspoken Mark Webber

Mark Webber

F1 has tried for years to figure out how to encourage overtaking. This year they have found the most successful formula yet — with the moveable rear wings and the power boost button — and yet every time there is a failed attempt to overtake, one driver has to pay for the failure with a debilitating penalty.

This should discourage them from even trying. Is racing not all about trying to pass and gain position? As Webber writes, if there is a really flagrant bit of reckless driving, a penalty might be called for. But a small error of judgment, or rather, an effort that simply failed, should not be penalized.
