F1 » Korean Grand Prix, Yeongam – Race results


So, let's get past the Hamilton personal stuff. Why did his team not give him fresh tires the moment he started to loose time to Rosberg? It went from half seconds to full seconds to almost three seconds and then he had to do a lap extra because of Nico's front wing failure. What kind of team is that? They were lucky that there were two safety car periods or they'd have been in deep **** and Lewis probably would have run out of tires 10 laps before the end.

F1 » McLaren working on Pirelli assumption


I am not entirely sure that a rev limited flow restricted turbo will kill the tires more than a current non turbo engine. The FIA don't want higher speeds. If things get out of hand you will see them rapidly rev limit engines and lower the pressure with more flow restrictions. At Monaco you could use the extra torque but if you run out of revs because of the limit there is only so much you can do with your gearbox ratio's. There is no point ripping the tarmac out of the ground with acceleration if you reach your top speed halfway down the straight. It is not like the eighties where you can push your engine to 1100 bhp and throw it away after qualifying just to fit a new one. There is also less downforce these times. It will be all about trade-offs. Do the Diesels at Le Mans stress the tires more significantly than their non-turbo competition. I doubt it. Yes it is all about torque, but the tires should be able to cope with that. Also, you can already spin the tires through allmost all
