F1 » F1: 'Now it's up to Maranello'

RavaraMike: What an fascinating pairing Alonso and Vettel would make. In identical cars it would show the greatness of one (or maybe even both?). Sadly there is too much Ferrari ego and testosterone in the mix to make that likely. What a shame.
That is the reason why Alonso is leaving. He will not race against teammate who will be given same equipment. Anyone remember why he left McLaren? He didnt het number 1 role when Lewis did so well. Now Mattiaci has told Alonso 1. Alonso is not the boss, Mattiaci is and 2. He needs to race with same equipment as hes teammate.
He left McLaren because they were racing against him not because it was equal.

F1 » Russian Grand Prix preview

tazion: I will not watch Sochi. Even if the UN is a group of do nothings, with the authority to do something when one country invades and takes over another sovereign country, as individuals we should all do whatever we are in a position to do, even though it may have no effect.
While I understand your point I am not convinced that the current government is legit either.

F1 » Bianchi 'critical but stable' after crash

richard: sunny. just saw your post. all the best for your op. i suffered a near fatal heart attack two months ago, but to the chagrin of some on here, i survived with apparently no lasting damage.
I was curious what had happened to you when you went MIA mid season. I am glad to hear that your recovery has gone well. Hopefully you can get back on the skis this winter.

F1 » Bianchi 'critical but stable' after crash

After reading Brundle's account of his accident at this corner in similar conditions it is unlikely that Bianchi ever even saw the flags whether they be yellow or green. I know that Sunny is against this but it seems that Race Control should have the ability to slow all of the cars electronically in such situations. Cleary we cannot count on the drivers to slow voluntarily or due to a waived flag. Too many marshals and drivers have been hurt to not make some reasonable changes to minimize the likelihood of this happening again.

F1 » Smedley: Closed F1 cockpits ‘very easy to implement’

richard: some could suggest an automatic sensor controlled speed limiter at a marshals post, but what happens if car 1,2 and 3 have a speed limiter activated, and then sensor is turned off by the time cars 4-22 come along? they would get an unfair advantage.
Probably the only way to do it fairly would be to implement it around the entire circuit. This is better than a safety cars as the gaps between the cars remains. They should also look at modifying the recovery vehicles. Even the highway maintenance vehicles here in California have a drop down impact barrier at the rear that they use when traveling slowly on the highways.

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Is it safe ever?’

sodesu: Time to start working on some kind of electronic throttle/top speed limiter to kick in in sectors with yellows maybe? They already have the sector data, and they also already have a limiter for the pit lane, albeit a manually employed one. I'd much rather have that than safety cars deployed for every incident, like in NASCAR. Or than drivers going too fast in sectors with marshals and/or stationary cars in, for that matter...
If F1 racing gets down to that why not make the cars to be able to be driven by remote controll, may be only than will some that follows F1 racing will be happy!.
So are you against pit lane speed limiters? This seems like a reasonable idea as why should it be possible to speed through a yellow flag zone? For all that we know Jules didn't even see the yellow flags in these conditions.
