Hi
I am Aty. My F1 related views as expressed on these pages will probably please some, whilst mentally disturb or howl a few others. I am almost certain of it. Please be gentle with me.

Welcome Aty. I'm pretty sure you will feel pleased and/or mentally disturbed by some of us too!

Look forward to seeing your views.

Thank you both, PTRACER and Everso, what seems to be hearty welcome, that is much appreciated from my side. To introduce myself little better, historically I don't follow crowds, I do challenge generally accepted claims masquerading as facts, so I hope other than mental anguish, it will cause no other problems to anyone.
I am glad to be here.

That's good, lull them into a false sense of security... :wink:

Just kidding. Sounds similar to myself then @Aty. Are you going to watch the upcoming F1 season or are you more into the historic side?

Q.: "Are you going to watch the upcoming F1 season or are you more into the historic side?"

A.: I suffer from deeply ingrained mistrust of ALL historical records, which explains why I usually try to focus on contemporary events most. It's not totally satisfying, however less disturbing. Trying to argue past usually did not changed anyone's minds, but made for some angry faces. Hardly win-win situation.

In new season a few issues of my interest:

- I shall observe development of youngsters, Mick, Yuki, and also keep eye on Seb's nirvana at AM.
- Big questions: Is MB pulling out and focusing on supplying PU only?
- Will Binotto survive another year?
- Will Stefano makes his move??
- Has Brawn/FiA made another mistake on technical side of specs?
- And a few more.

These would definitely be good points to raise in the Formula One section in the coming days/weeks: viewforum.php?f=17

MB pulling out is not something I had considered at all lately.
