F1 » Horner defends Red Bull chassis after Ricciardo backlash


StevoG: Me too Buzz45, people on this forum are so quick to criticise and put drivers down and/or teams in a derogatory and nasty way that it really reflects their mentality and their bitchiness (my driver and my team is better blah blah and etc etc) that its really getting ridiculous. There is no purpose of following F1 when the sport is sick just like the fans (that remain) are sick also. I'm 'out of here also'.
I don't think that there is a general dislike of Riciardo. A lot of people are just responding to all of the claims last year that he was so much better than Vettel. Apparently last year was not as telling about either of them as some think.

F1 » Renault F1 future to hinge on Mercedes leniency?


35edme:
George Zaidan: for the sake of the sport can we have a level playing field? at least some semblance of a competition to get the fans excited again?
Weren't all the teams subject to the rules, whose fault is it that only one shone ?
If it was only one season it would be more palatable. If teams have no way of catching up from one season to the next without a change to the rules then something is wrong. At some point it will hurt Mercedes as the TV footage will stop showing the leaders who are only driving in formation and show the rest of the pack where the actual racing is.

F1 » Renault F1 future to hinge on Mercedes leniency?


simrae: The answer is simple. Save money by reducing the race length by 50%. This would save 50% on fuel (or allow them to drive a lot faster for a shorter time), and gets rid of the 50% of the race which is a procession, and allows them to drive full-on for the duration of the race - and at the very least, the spectators waste less of their time watching the death-throws of a once great sport... If they really want to save fuel, do what we all have to do - drive less, not slower...
Short attention span? If anything they should make the races longer. It seems that more often than not there are drivers closing in on their opponents at the end of the race only to run out of laps.

F1 » Alonso not frustrated, but not happy looking like amateur


tommytrojan1: If you want to save fuel, DON'T RACE HIGH PERFORMANCE FORMULA ONE CARS AT CIRCUITS ALL OVER THE WORLD. Just a small point - perhaps a bit too obvious, but the powers that be that are currently running this sport into the ground seem to have missed it. Not only do we already have a dries that incorporates fuel saving into the overall spectacle (sportscars - and they do it much better), isn't F1 supposed to be going flat out pretty much all the time? If not, it's not grand prix racing it's endurance racing- and that's NOT what Hamilton, Alonso, Vettel, Kimi, etc. are paid to do.
You are assuming that they started with a full tank of fuel. Teams are free to decide their fuel strategy.

F1 » Grosjean upset at lack of apology from Verstappen


Honeybadger: Wow. What a sport. The most comments & discussion about a crash between back-markers at the most processional circuit on the calendar. No wonder everybody is switching off.......
Actually there were far more comments about Merc's ill conceived pit stop. I understand that for people with a low attention span it may be tedious at times. A lot like baseball in America there can be long periods with little excitement but at any time something big or something that you have never seen before can happen.

F1 » Lowe: Mercedes error needs context


ProfessorX:
Mark :
ProfessorX: it had nothing to do with the data, his race engineer should have properly evaluated the context of the radio communication and saw how marginal the pit was and rejected it. How many times this year has Lewis had poor pit stop times, Lewis needs a race engineer that can think on his feet, not ask permission to go to the loo.
What Lewis needs is a race engineer who will stand up to his insecurities and take charge of the situation. The way it is now they let Lewis bully them into bad decisions.
it has nothing to do with insecurities, or bullying, it has to do with common sense :)
Are you saying that Lewis lacks common sense? All the more reason to have a strong race engineer then.
