Race Edits[edit]

Please STOP removing the information about the Race Edits.
This information is true. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WesleyBranton (talkcontribs) 17:05, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Just because it's true doesn't mean that it's notable. What songs are included on an internet video has no baring on the sport whatsoever. JohnMcButts (talk) 20:09, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Women in F1 racing?[edit]

I'd appreciate it if somebody knowledgeable would add something about which presence, if any, women have in F1 racing (or why not). There's List of female Formula One drivers, but it gives little context and doesn't seem to be linked.  Sandstein  21:24, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

"Famously described..."[edit]

I've reverted this, as the term is highly F1-centric, and is unlikely to have any recognition outside of the F1 world. Coupled with the fact that although sourced, the source is itself a motorsport magazine and not a mainstream publication and you don't have a "famous" quote.

The issue here is to recognise what is famous within a clique, and what is famous throughout the rest of the world. A quote - such as this - may be famous within motorsport, but that does not make it famous elsewhere, which is what the Wiki is directed at. Chaheel Riens (talk) 19:11, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Score Double Points?[edit]

I think we should change the wording on the F1 pages as a whole from "team scored double points" to "teams score Double Points" to reflect that the race has not happened yet and therefore would be confusing.
