F1 » Kate Walker: The rock and the hard place


Unfortunately Kate has hit the nail on the head. Greed is starting to take over from common sense, Greed on behalf of the big teams who squirt an obscene amount of money at what was a sport and refuse to take on simple fixes to reduce costs (like banning telemetry and reducing all the PC monkeys that are lined up at the back of the pits). Greed on behalf of the commercial rights holder who manipulates the prize monies and takes a far too large chunk of the money for himself. One thing that you may all not be aware of is that using Trust to avoid tax actually becomes a monster (I can vouch for that from experience). Sure you can dump £m's into it tax free but the costs of managing it along with the fact that when you borrow from it you have to declare this to the tax authorities and pay tax on what you borrow, very quickly it becomes a monster that you have to feed (that's ignoring any ex wives and daughters spending from it). It could be that this monster is now driving the costs

F1 » Lotterer confirmed at Caterham


I find it difficult to understand how Lotterer can be faster than Kobayashi. So far as F1 goes surely he is inexperienced? Also it's interesting to see that he has been super licenced fast tracked? Logic would surely suggest that you replace your slower driver which isn't Kobayashi? Very strange, that is unless Bernie is involved which then makes sense!

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Big scare... but good fun!


It seems to me that the best strategy would have been to do one lap on the wets then pit, hindsight is a great thing:- 1) Petruci proved that you could do a good laptime early on on wets. 2) He (they) would have avoided the queue coming in and out of the pits 3) It would have been a faster pitstop as they could have swapped bikes and exited the pits without being stopped.

F1 » Wolff expects consistent Williams challenge


here4thesun2:
CallMeMrCynical: Gentlemen, you will never know the version of the software that controls the engine/MGU-H/MGU-K that is issued to Mercedes/Williams/Force India/McLaren. Mr Wolff knows but we the public will never know, it is my belief that one of the main performance differentiators is this software. I could believe that everybody has the same hardware.
According to some peeks from the cameras, tv and stills, the software the pitwall is using is still compatible with windows 95.
Firestorm we are talking about the software on the car that controls the three power units.

F1 » Kate Walker: The other decision made in London


I just don’t understand why the teams don’t adopt simpler ways to spend money Cut live telemetry, that will save sending loads of Monkeys around the world and in the pits to sitting on computer screens. The bye product of this is that it will hand back to the drivers decisions that they should be making in the car, so now a thinking driver will have an advantage, I always get a bit sadder when I hear an ex world champion radioing the team and asking what he should do about his understeer. Cut the use of chemicals, sorry I meant to say fuel. Use actual pump fuel available to the public (not as described by the MSA) Drastically reduce the aero down-force numbers do it simply by mandating a single element front wing and get rid of those hideous stacks. They could also mandate that the edges are not sharp so it reduces the number of punctures caused by collisions. Lock Bernie away and distribute the money to the teams in a more open way. (perhaps Bavaria is on it's way to do this)

F1 » Perez penalty upheld


107SS2000 we all have our opinions which is why we discuss it on this forum. What you elude to unfortunately is far to simplistic, the FIA is a major political animal and rarely will change a decision as it weakens people's perception of them. I am starting to despair at F1 and the way that it's run, if you want to see some real action try MotoGP, now that appears to be a raw gloves off experience. F1 seems to be all full of B*llsh*t I am waiting soon for Hamilton and Rosberg to be given handbags at dawn (yawn). You surely are not telling me that the stewards walk on water and are right every time, if so what happened to the McLaren fine vs the Renault fine a few years ago? Why did they not suspect Piquet at Singapore before he sung. No unfortunately as my name suggests there is gross manipulation going on with these handbag fights. For the record I like Massa, however me thinks he protests too much and I still think it was a 50/50 accident.

F1 » New hearing in to Perez/Massa incident


107SS2009: Article 13.10 states that teams can ask for the right of review if a new element is discovered, in this case the new element is the opinion of Perez, which gives Force India the possibility to appeal.
In addition to Perez's opinion they are also going to review the data logged in Perez's car, something I think they should have done before they made a decision on the day? Perez's opinion will not be a surprise to anyone?
