F1 » Renault seeking ‘at least five wins’ in F1 2015


DennisKwok: So, Renault's aim is to be only 30bhp down on Mercedes compared to where they at the end of 2014? Ok, so if the rumours coming out of Brixworth are true, that leaves Renault the best part of 80bhp down come Melbourne. Theoretically, Renault will be even further behind in terms of bhp than they were last year.
of course rumours mean nothing! however, when renault engines last won the wdc (for 4 years!) they were 80 bhp down on the merc. that didnt stop them, did it?

F1 » Ferrari boss calls for F1 ‘revolution’ to win back fans


Wink54: What The Crap Next??? Atomic pellets??? GET RID OF KERS, plain and simple... Would save millions on car costs.
whether we like it or not (personally i dont!) the likes of kers, ers and hybrids is here to stay due to its relevance to the modern car. i must admit, that being a purist, i would prefer na engines, of any configuration but with a limit of xxx bhp at the rear wheels. after this it is the ability of the driver that will have a chance to shine. and as ian , above says, f1 was very nearly an upscale formula ford at one time. only ferrari and matra prevented it becoming so.....thank goodness!

F1 » Ferrari boss calls for F1 ‘revolution’ to win back fans


shamarone: re: "that would further exacerbate the problem" that would mitigate the problem.
sorry, you dont understand! having a na engine racing against turbos has not been a success in the past! the turbos at present are just as powerful as the old v8s and lap times are now passing the old lap times. giving the na v8s to teams, when the turbos are only in their infancy, would be madness. read up on the history of f1! thats a bit like saying that the lower teams in motogp, should be given the honda engines from moto 2!

F1 » F1: Streiff apologises as FIA legal action looms


googol. and now YOU are lecturing sunny !!!????? and you are not the only one who knows the law. obviously fia lawyers know the law and that is why they decided it was defamation. streiffs lawyers also accepted that they hadnt a leg to stand on, and decided to apologise. the simple fact is that streiff publicly voiced his personal opinion, directly accusing the fia of specific actions. he could certainly have voiced his opinion without the direct accusations, and we (and fia) would have taken it as an individual opinion, and then it would have been forgotten.

F1 » F1: Streiff apologises as FIA legal action looms


WackyRacer: An FIA appointed Kangaroo Court absolving the FIA, who would've thought? Open your eyes if you think that carries integrity. Strieff was correct, if overly gobby, but I'm not sure I blame him for the apology as the legal costs will probably finish him off never mind any award if a court finds in the FIA's favour.
get over it! if streiff was right, a court would find in his favour and award him costs! so if he was right, he would have had no fear of a court case. he obviously realised (and was probably advised by his lawyers) that he had in fact defamed and decided to apologise. and that take a better man than he was when he defamed!

F1 » Ferrari boss calls for F1 ‘revolution’ to win back fans


this site amazes me. a few weeks ago, there were some here claiming that arrivebene had no right to be boss in ferrari as he knew nothing about f1! and some of these are now praising him for speaking forth! and now we have some coming on claiming that they know what is best for f1. do you not realise that the spec and rules are drawn up by the teams! they wanted the current spec, and agreed with it. and now we have one person saying that there should be na engines for the lower teams?? that would further exacerbate the problem, not eliminate it. those teams would be even more hampered and surviving would be nearly impossible.
