F1 » Pirelli rules out Vettel tyre failure


Though I ponder how much the kurb had to do with the outcome due to no one else being affected when they ran over it, I would still be more inclined to think Vettel's Tyre Pressures were too low and the tyre just slipped off the bead going around T2.. It has happened to me before in karting on an opening lap and that was with about 1G going through the tyre, imagine that happening with about 3 times the load going through then it makes that theory plausable! In reality though, we will probably never find out because there was no tyre left to analyse!

F1 » Barrichello upbeat after encouraging race pace


This was probably the first time since Melbourne I've seen Barrichello looking like he had a spark again! A very good start and made up a lot of places in the first 5 laps, no points for his reward but considering how little practice he has had all weekend, a fairly stellar performance I'd say. Brazil next, from memory, he normally finds about 1/2 a second a lap just from the crowd cheering.... if this is his last race then I'd like to see him go off on a high!

F1 » FIA to assist in Wheldon enquiry


at Mark I don't think it would have mattered what he hit, it was the way he hit it that killed him i.e. his head hitting the wall at 180mph... doesn't matter if the wall was as soft as sponge, if your head hits it at that speed.... then it's good night Seiena. Many things contributed to this accident, too many cars on the circuit is too easy to moan at, racing on an oval with high bankings so you could easily hit 220mph is more of a concern, then giving drivers even more power with the "boost button" for passing.... for such a fast oval, the power should have been reduced like in NASCAR - even 30 mph reduction would have made a huge difference on a safety aspect. The other major issue... the out-dated chassis design, it flips way too easily! Take Rob Conway's flip in Indy last year for example... had he of gone into that wall head first then the end result would have been the same as last week, Dan was just very unlucky that his head took the full brunt of the impact.

F1 » Schumacher 'harsh', says Whitmarsh, as Hamilton holds tongue


Hamilton given a taste of his own medicine.... Apart from moving across once at the Lesmo's, I don't see what schuy did that was wrong, he was forceful with his defences but very well calculated with them too.. look at him going into ascari, always looking in the mirrors as breaking to make sure there was enough room for him to take the racing line back (more than what could be said for Hamilton at Spa). This was old school racing that I remember seeing 10 years ago from Hakkinen and Schumacher when battling for the lead! You don't get that anymore, Schuy was just doing what we all love/hate about him - being himself! Hamilton was wayyy too timid for the whole race anyway, 21 laps it took to get past him (only because of schuy missing a gear) whilst button took 1 lap! Go onto the BBc's website, look for the 1991 Italian Grand Prix Highlights, back then it was considered a great battle.... today that would be enough to get you thrown out the race!

F1 » Legendary F1 designer Gordon Murray joins Group Lotus


Bloody hell! If there was one person I never expected to see back in F1, it was Gordon Murray! Welcome back! :D Personally I would prefer to see him designing cars again to see what he could come up with, but after so long out - that might not be a wise thing. Eitherway, having such an influencial person in your team can only work wonders on the marketing side... with the way the team has been running of late, this is a really nice addition to try and sort things out!

F1 » Heidfeld set to fight Renault exit


Well if you want to fight your your right to drive, you better perform Nick! 3rd at the start of the season was good and I hoped we would have seen good things coming as the season progressed.... however... he only has 2 points more than someone who has to pay for their drive, I can see why Renault are not happy... he was employed to lead the team, develop the car etc.. 2 points ahead of a relative rookie paydriver is not exactly leading... nor is driving up the back of Kobyashi or Buemi (granted they were racing incidents), however when your quali pace isn't good and you are spending most of your time playing catch up... or being stuck behind kovy at the Hungaroring before the car sets alight... you can't help but see why Boulier is unhappy. If he is to develop the car... why have they gone from podium contenders to struggling to stay ahead of Force India? He is a steady driver but considering he is being paid and only just out-performing a pay-driver... why not take a shot at
