F1 » Pirelli: Debris, prolonged use caused Vettel tyre failure

re reading the statement, i would go further... assuming that the average number of stops was 2, then that makes each car using 12 tyres, so a total of 240 tyres. there were 63 microscopic cuts found, so only one tyre in 4 suffered a cut. but none of those failed. then we go on to the fact that pirelli say that 30 % of tread was left. this confirms what ferrari said...the tyre was good for 40 laps, so those plonkers who claimed that it was ferraris fault for trying a one stopper, must have red faces! a one stopper was well within the bounds of possibility.

F1 » Hamilton brands Monza tyre pressure changes a 'disaster'

every team has a pirelli engineer in their garage monitoring tyre pressures and providing advice. IF any team was running below the dictated pressure, the pirelli engineer would know and would ensure that pressures were maintained. further, pirelli have data from on board sensors from every car! so claiming that one team or another is running 10, or even psi lower than the required pressure is jut plain bunkum.

F1 » McLaren pair face Monza engine misery

theoldgitspeaks: This is not news anymore, with no testing McLaren are clearly doing whatever they can to improve things regardless of the penalties. The FIA will no doubt take a dim view of this but until some sanity prevails we can expect more of the same.
has anyone realised that macca can take penalties at every race as there would be little grid drop, but can then use a fresh pu or any other part without any real penalty. clever way to push improvements!

F1 » Sainz given boost by Verstappen success in Spa

Sasha Alexandrovich: He will have to ride his ass off. Good chance that RBR will get the latest spec factory Ferrari engines according to La Gazetto della Sport today in a better deal than Mercedes in exchange for placing Ferrari youngsters in the Torro Rosso. Sainz still needs a contract for next year, Max has a deal until 2018. Impress to get another seat.
your "source" is well known for its inaccuracy. renault will buy into lotus or force india, who will then relinquish their merc pus which will then be badged as aston martin and supplied to rbr. rb are developing a car for aston martin, in conjunction with newey and the car is already being referred to as the red bull. if renault conclude their deal for 2016, the rbr contract for 2016 will be voided
