Have always been a Ham fan due to his pace, think he is the quickest driver but I've lost faith in him now.He is lost in Show Biz! The last straw was when he said he wanted to design the Merc uniforms. JESUS get a grip! Just drive the f**kin car ! This bloke has turned into a complete tool!!!

PCXmerc, Talking of not having a clue, they were talking today about how the fuel loads will be 40% less next season. You better ask your chemistry teacher how that will work.
Oh and Lulu was upset because he thought he'd finished 3rd, the team hadn't told him that Alonso and Kimi were ahead of him, you'd think he'd be used to them being ahead of him by now! LOLZ etc.

Taipan.
Not day one. I was never a fan of the bloke (child) but I was a fan of his driving. Super Fast. He has quickly lost all touch with reality,sacking his Dad and all the other ********. I thought, no, keep the faith,the kid will come back to being a goodun. But no. £20 Mill will do that to some people of a certain ilk. Look at the way his accent has changed! Oh dear.

@Taipan, there is no restriction on fuel tank size, also the pressure seems to be much higher so they can probably squeeze more fuel in between the pump and the injectors, they will use less fuel at say Monza, but when it comes to slower tracks like Singapore or Hungary, there is no question that the engines could use more fuel if they wanted to.

The new motors are not more fuel efficient, they are a gimmick to bring Ferrari back in to contention, along with trying to limit aero, it won't work because Ferrari are better at politicking than they are at engineering cars. RBR will destroy Ferrari until Ferrari decide to learn how to weave through loopholes, cheat with out getting caught and engineer a proper car.

The cars will be heavier next year, they will consume more fuel and at times be slower, they are not any better, its just a gimmick to get people to believe in turbos so they will go out and buy stupid stuff, just like all the rest of the stupid sponsors that pay to plaster th

pcxmerc. I cannot believe that you are still on that ridiculous topic. did you not watch the race today? they were talking about engines and clearly stated that they would use 40% LESS fuel, and saying that the engines were a lot more efficient. but then, what do all the engine manufacturers know?

The really good drivers don't really point fingers - really.

I've always found that disappointing in Hamilton - you want to believe that on merit, he is above placing blame, but on quite a regular basis reminds us to the contrary.

Seems he always has to get that dig in ... sure he has some praise thereafter ... but there is always that punch to the throat.

@richard at which races? which cars? do you believe in 40% richard? lolz,

of course they will not use 40% less fuel. unless they are running super lean cars, which makes them even more costly and unreliable. maybe thats why they cost so much, oh, are we not supposed to be saving money? whose running this show? whose pulling the strings? lolz.

No, the smart guys will figure out how to get more fuel through those lines and in to the injectors, and pull handily away from the idiots who keep a constant fuel pressure in between the pump and the injectors.

The regs are light, I have read thru that particular section, and the nearest I can find to limiting fuel buffering is 1 liter outside the tank/crash thinga majiggy.

The new motors are pure gimmick, anyone who believes what they are being told by the TV needs to give all their property to the state and shut up.

THERE IS NO RESTRICTION ON FUEL TANK SIZE, NONE. THE RESTRICTION IS 100KG/HOUR.
