F1 » F1: 'Now it's up to Maranello'


Matt2:
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 » Bianchi 'critical but stable' after crash


here4thesun2: Looks like a post of mine wishing sunny well got deleted. It said: Sunny, hurry back, but don't rush. Rest well and hope to see you back real soon. the meaning is: We (I) look forward to your return, but do take the time to get well. An unfortunate case of administration. The post following got deleted as well which I thought was relevant to the conversation of the thread up until Sunny let us know his immediate plans. Crash was this lost in translation? I hate to even ask because I don't want to mix this conversation in with well wishes to Sunny.
My original post from yesterday disappeared too.

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


107SS2009: Taipan, I never has considered you having turned into a “retard”, While you/”we” understands the rules, you still chose to argue said rules from on soft sand, While you don’t believe the flags had any bearing on the accident, you still question the green flag a “metre” away being turned into a dangerous situation into a perfectly safe one. If I had any unwillingness to listen to your opinion, I wouldn’t have answered. And as to what you term/consider “rudeness”, Tomorrow I am being hospitalised for two/three days, nothing big with this, I will do my best to keep-up with you lot from out there, the doctor told me he can only repair me but not change me, so God willing be prepared for more of the same from this end.
Best of luck to you Sunny. Hopefully you can watch the race while you recover in the hospital.

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. energyabsorption.com/products/images/alpha2001-1.gif
