F1 » 'No complacency' at Red Bull


yo Richard, Im with you on your comment,but as you say the testing/lead time IS restricted so again in theory that means the teams that lag behind by a large or a small amount only have a very small window in which to find the sweet spot and if they don't then its catch-up time all over again. If I can give an extreme example, when JB won with Mercedes, he was running away with the championship because it took so long for Mcl and Ferrari to sort their own problems but at about the halfway point,if I remember correctly, both teams got on top of their issues and JB struggled pretty much for the rest of the season for decent results and it was only his early season wins that kept him ahead of the game !! I stand to be corrected but it was my take on the season

Richard I agree with you that LH would be a lot closer and although Im a fan ( and of several of the other drivers as well )he has been making some stupid mistakes so at the end of the season when he looks back he'll have to hold his hand up and say could have done better. A point I made on an earlier post is that its very difficult to play catch-up with a test ban in place. So the team that hits the ground running has a much bigger advantage these days than in days of old.

F1 » 'No complacency' at Red Bull


I take your point Richard but I don't recall Senna ever running away with a championship without being troubled by a team-mate at least if not another driver, that's why I made the comment about a DRIVER rather than a team, I actually don't give a monkeys if a TEAM is dominating providing there a 2 drivers going for it, I know you may say that its up to Webber to raise his game and I wouldn't disagree with that comment either

to be honest, 1 driver dominating has always p1ssed me off whoever it is, but it could so easily be sorted out by bringing back in-season testing, I'm really not interested in hearing how the FIA banned it in the interests of cost-cutting when they've insisted on KERS which has cost the teams MILLIONS to develop. I can think of cheaper ways for the FIA to reduce costs without it costing any money, in fact they could make money straight off by making Monaco pay for the GP the same as all the other circuits instead of getting it as a freebee

F1 » Vettel takes Monaco pole as Perez shunts


I bet we're all just glad that the FIA banned in-season testing as a: a cost-cutting exercise and b: to stop one team dominating ........ I think it's just brilliant cos unless Im reading this wrong the teams have been a: forced into using kers and drs at no small expense and b: the testing ban now sees one team dominating ......................... well done the FIA, job done,Although I take nothing away from the red bull team, fair play to them

F1 » Blundell: Pay-per-view F1 didn't work before – and won't work now


it amazes me how far from the original subject these threads go, but here I go again.... Richard, I take all your points and agree with you entirely but what I meant was has Seb actually started from a lower position than the front row and had to overtake to win a race, not a back marker or a pass by a slick pit stop. Brendan, don't get me wrong I actually like Damon and he did pull some good passes but for me he was a bit too Prost-like in his driving i.e. stay close to the guy in front and hope he makes a mistake, breaks down or pass him through a quicker pit stop, before anyone kicks off, I know it'll be said thats how to win races and championships and I accept that, BUT I just want to see overtaking and real racing, surely thats not too much to ask.... and don't even get me started on the testing bans
