F1 » F1 Accident Panel: ‘Bianchi did not slow sufficiently’


i think that all this talk about a tractor should not be there, is superfluous. unfortunately, due to length of tracks etc, it is impossible to have external lifting devices. and what happens when a car is in the middle of a track and even a lifting crane could not reach that far? of course jcbs etc have to be used, and provided precautions are used, they can be operated safely. what some appear to be missing is the fact that there was actually NO gravel tra[ where this occurred, the car was on grass and service road. so gravel, even if it has its own dangers (flipping) would have at least slowed down the car, with or withoudtthe assistance of braking.

F1 » F1 Accident Panel: ‘Bianchi did not slow sufficiently’


Jayne: OMG this is disgraceful and pathetic. To blame a man who cannot defend himself is the lowest of the low in an organisation that has lost the plot too many times now....
jayne. i agree, and that was the point of my earlier comment. why on earth say that jules didnt slow down sufficiently? no mention that nobody else slowed down sufficiently! jules slowed down in accordance with the rules, and so deserves no criticism for that. from my years of investigative of work in relation to elf and safety, and reading the report, the blame lies on three aspects inadequate drainage of track ineffective bbw no gravel trap so the circuit owners were responsible on two points, and marussia on one.

hunterman , you often talk a lot of bs, but unfortunately nutty speaks much more. surprised he hasnt come up with some way to add ballast when they are racing, so as to slow down the cars! but in a way, you have a good point. to have the race control to suddenly shut down power would lead to many an accident as cars went out of control. but there is a way in which it could be done slowly. and that is by an electronically controlled restrictor valve on the fuel supply line, that would linerally reduce the flow to the engine, this would cause the pu to lose power and reduce speed. it could also disable the ers system so that electrical power could not be used

F1 » McLaren fails to reach driver decision


ilovesushi: Bruce McLaren will be spinning like a top in his grave. Majority shareholders put your foot/feet down now, get rid of Dennis and bring in Ross Brawn with full control. I have never seen anything like this in all my days.
dennis does not control the shares, so it is not his decision or his fault! not that i like the man, but it is unfair to blame him for something outside his control!

DaveLush: OK Here is my 2 pence. It is possible that Jules was going to fast for the situation or he saw the green flag and put his foot down as expected. But to me the Race Direction and officials need to take some responsibilty for this accident. rather than play the blame game.
oh not all this AGAIN. the green flag was shown as it was PAST the workers on the side of the track! perfectly correct and in accord with rules. jules could not have seen the green flag anyway, as he went off well before the corner, and anyway, he could not increase speed until he was BEYOND the flag! flags were correct...end of story!

F1 » Renault F1 has ‘huge job list’ for 2015


rob01: he (lewis)now states he has a contract next year and that the deal for 16 will get done.
rob lulu originally signed a contract for 3 years...2013, 2014 and 2015, so he does not need to say that he now has a contract for 2015. he has had one sine he joined merc. as regards 2016, negotiations now are commencing, but if merc do not offer enough, there is no guarantee that lulu will sign. of course he could be holding out for kimi to retire and hope that he will get the number 2 seat to my great great grandson. ferrari may do a u turn by then, if he is lucky!
