F1 » Rosberg’s dig at Hamilton ahead of F1 decider


Carpenter:
Mark :
Carpenter: I don't believe Lewis has taken his team mate out of a GP this season, yet the bloke pointing fingers has. It's just mind games before the weekend because that is all that Nico can do to try and win. It's Lewis' to lose and that is all.
Rosberg didn't take Lewis out. Lewis quit.
I'm sorry but Lewis was in the lead of a GP and he was hit by Nico which caused him to retire if that isn't taking your team mate out of a GP I don't know what is.
He drove for 31 laps after their contact. His car was faster than both Ferraris and one of the McLarens when he decided to park the car to preserve his engine for another race. He could have finished and if he loses by a point this year he may regret not fighting for every point available.

F1 » Rosberg’s dig at Hamilton ahead of F1 decider


hunterman: Come on now Nico it was not Lewis who told his team that a he did not prevent an accident from happening just to prove a point. And it was not Lewis's name on a banner in the crowd saying stop cheating, and it was not Lewis who was getting booed on the podium throughout the European GP's after Monaco. Nico needs to check himself and stop putting his car in the lead drivers racing line before starting to accuse another of dirty driving. And he must also remember no stewards have taken any action against his team-mate for his driving this season.
The problem with Rosberg is that it was too little too late. He should have held his ground in Bahrain instead of letting Hamilton push him off track. If he had stood up to Hamilton earlier then the season would have played out much differently.

Samouri: he was "hit" by nico because nico had got tired of being bullied off the track. something that lulu did twice before this season and did it again at austin. nico held his ground and lulu was given his comuppance. It doesn't say much for a driver if he feels that being aggresively passed as being bullied. Aggressiveness is a necessity for passing in F1, something that Lewis uses, and I hope that he never stops.
But as we have seen when other drivers such as Magnusson drive like this they are penalized. Go figure.

F1 » Kate Walker: Breaking the omerta


boger: I am sick of Monisha and fellow useless managers pouring acid on my loving sport trying to justify their incompetence. Ferrari, McLaren, Williams were all small teams once... They needed a lot of hard work, sacrifice and excellent leadership to get to where they are now. New teams are not bringing any additional value to F1 so why they expect to get millions from it? Can you, in any business, anywhere, get to startup funds just by whining? If you are unable to get the money then you are not a manager.
So how did you feel when Williams abandoned FOTA to get a few shekels from Bernie to commit to his vision of F1? Is stabbing the other teams in the back preferable to asking for a more equitable distribution of funds? Personally I do not care to watch if the grid shrinks to 12-14 cars.

F1 » Kate Walker: Breaking the omerta


nealio: The abject failure of the FIA in governing the F1 business is at the root of this problem.
I do not believe that the role of the FIA is to govern the business of F1. Their role is to govern the rules and regulations of the sport. The teams let Bernie have control of the F1 revenues due to their own shortsightedness. If the teams were set-up like NFL franchises they would be in a better position to survive. When was the last time that you heard of an NFL franchise going belly-up? The problem now is that the teams are not united in creating a long term solution for the good of the sport.

107SS2009: Mark, "Control of F1 revenues". The commercial rights of formula one were stolen from the FIA and the teams by M M and given to his buddy B E.
If I am not mistaken M M just extended that deal. Bernie got control years before Max headed the FIA. He bought the teams rights to TV revenues for a pittance. I believe that it was around $100k per team.
