Lewis Hamilton: It's not the same as back in the day when you had stints where you are pushing to the maximum the whole time...

Rob, your Lulu has already started practicing in anticipation for the 2014 economy runs (racing in fuel saving mod in Malaysia).
Re your pos, You field to mention that in 2014 maximum engine revs and so maximum engine power output will be avoided like the plague.

Let's stop all F1 activities until Pirelli makes a compound that perfectly suits poor little Lewis! Wait a minute - there's no such compound in the world! There are two solutions for LH - he must learn how not to destroy tyres in a few laps or he should ask Mercedes to build him a time machine and move him in some another F1 era with huge tyres sliding all around. First race for the new team and the whining has begun - as expected. Shut up and drive! They're not paying you for making excuses. Not that much, anyway...

... and why don't we ban DRS, radio-connection, pit-stops, KERS, slicks, seamless gearboxes and spoilers? If you follow F1 you can see the same pattern: it's always the TYRES. After few races every Team learns to handle them and then they are fine. To everybody - but Lewis.

RMcGeddon, do you have a slightest idea about the cost of testing? Do you have a spare change of few hundred millions annually? Think not.

Personally I rather enjoyed watching the teams cope with tire deg last season. The tire strategy seemed to bring a little more drama and unexpected results. However, Pirelli and F1 have taken it to ridiculous new level this season. I don't understand why they can't just leave well enough alone. We have gone from interesting twists to drivers just trying to nurse the cars to the checkers. Way to go...

I really dislike the disproportionate influence that tires are having on the action, now...it's been thrown out of balance. It's one thing to have tires and compounds that make people think about tire wear or work a pit stop strategy, that's fine...but it's quite another when the tires don't allow driving at the limit, whatsoever. At no time can any of these guys really push their tires to the maximum limit of traction, because they will shred them. It is hurting the racing, IMO.

birch, it certainly wouldn't cost 'hundreds of millions annually'! The teams with the most resources would be able to test the most and have an advantage over the less well funded teams, but they have an advantage anyway. Maybe Bernie could donate annually what Tamara's wedding cost, about £12 million, to pay for in season testing. That ought to do it!

When cars and drivers arrive at the circuits to race, they should be at their maximum performance capability, as this is supposed to be the worlds premier motor racing series, but all too often that's not the case.
