Einmal möchte ich ein Böser sein, eine miese Sau,
For once I want to be a Baddie, a mean ***hole,
Einmal richtig hundsgemein für einen Tag genau,
Once, really friggin’ mean, just for one day.
Einmal möchte ich ein Böser sein, grausam und brutal
For once I want to be a Baddie, cruel and brutal.
Und dann zieh ich meine Spur, durch dieses Jammertal
And I’ll leave a trail in this valley of tears.
We cannot know, but it appears this gem of Austrian music by legendary musicians EAV could have been playing inside the Mercedes headquarters sometime in 2013 when they knew they’d be making a mockery of F1 from 2014 forwards. It appears, despite two Ferrari wins this year, Mercedes are beginning to understand that they are heading towards where Red Bull has already been. Win too much and you p*** off a lot of fanbases.
As always with Mercedes, however, there are coming conflicting signals from the bunker. Toto Wolff recently was cited that he thought the recent heap of negativity piled on F1 was not all that bad as it kept the series in the news, all okay as long as Merc is winning.
Niki Lauda meanwhile was quoted as saying that F1 should take a page out of motorcycle racing, because unlike F1 cars, motorcycles were difficult to drive.
Niki, Motorcycles are the stupidest invention ever. Them things fall over when you leave them stationary somewhere and if you have a crash on them, you’re dead. I don’t think that’s what F1 should be shooting for. I agree with your idea of making F1 cars more challenging to drive though. FIA had a great idea lately, saying starts shouldn’t be remote controlled from the pitwall anymore. Guess who complained the loudest – surprise – it was Mercedes.
Bring on Spa.
