F1 » Mercedes: We won’t let drivers pursue bad strategies

Interesting to compare this race/driver with Button's calls on strategy in the 2011 Canadian GP. Whilst conditions were totally different, it was Button himself who was making the calls to McLaren on when to change tyres, to great effect. Mercedes, for all their engineering excellence do seem to be running races in a "corporate" mode - a shame they don't seem to be able to run by the seat of their pants where necessary. While they have their advantage over the field this might work, but once this is gone, then they'll need a good strategist who can make the calls - or let the drivers have the input they should have.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director explains Rossi punishment

Webb has basically called Marquez a liar - which, in this case he most definitely is. There's no question he was trying to impede Rossi, rather than just race him fair and square. As for collusion by Spanish riders, well there's a precedent there, in professional cycling - in the 1985 Vuelta, Robert Millar was set to win until collusion by Spanish teams effectively robbed him of the win. Irrespective, it all leaves a very nasty taste in the mouth - no-one, Rossi included comes out of it well.

F1 » Hamilton on verge of equalling Senna record

richard: wow. different times, different cars, etc. so it is certainly not too hard to get more wins than a previous champion. it still will not make lulu great. there have been great drivers in the past who only ever won a few gps, and lulu comes nowhere near being as well thought of as those.
See the assessment in Autosport for British F1 champions - he's only 3rd behind Stewart and Clark (I didn't agree with their placing JYS above Clark, though.)

F1 » Should F1 be celebrating the value of modern celebrity?

Personally, I follow motor racing for the racing. I don't give a t055 about what "celebrities" might be there as long as they don't interfere with the racing - when cameras dwell on some non-person in a pit - that's when I get irritated. Having been, on occasion, at a meeting in a sponsor's suite, I usually end up slipping away to get trackside and enjoy the racing up and as close as possible. On the topic of attracting a wider audience, I still remember being at Silverstone in '92 when the Sun's "Mansell-mania" was at it's height. If that is an example of a wider audience, then no thank you. That was the one and only time I have been concerned for my safety, and that of my son, at a motor racing event (from the spectators that is).

F1 » Boullier: McLaren has seconds of potential to unlock

FVA47: Didn,t Honda have driveability problems with the old engine? The solution then was to fit a Mercedes engine and call it a Brawn!!
The drivability of the Honda at the time you are talking about was not the problem, if the Honda engine was on offer at that time Brawn would have used it and not the Mercedes engine and he would have made a couple more millions out of that project.
Not so. Both drivers commented at the first test of the BGP01 that the Mercedes engine had a far better torque curve than the previous Honda engine, which was all top-end power.

F1 » Force India proud of Hulkenberg's Le Mans win

richard: i am delighted for hulk. but it is funny....from most reports it would appear that he alone won the race. two lesser known drivers...tandy and bamber... also contributed to the win.
richard, having managed to get full coverage (and managed about 18 hours between naps), the 19 car's performance was just about unblemished. Both Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber were every bit as strong as NH - But, of course Hulkenberg is the first active F1 driver to win since Johnny Herbert in '91, so it's not so surprising that the press focus on him. Was yet another great race - even down to getting rain in last 30 minutes! Roll on September at Austin.
