F1 » POLL: Do you like the 18-inch tyres?


blighter. please explain exactly how it is relevant to road cars? road cars have made it relevant (sort off) to f1! the only reason to consider them is for looks, as we are now used to low profile rubber. but it will put extra strain on suspension and drive shafts. less torque absorbtion will cause more torque on the drive shafts, so they will have to be beefed up. less bump absorbtion through the tyres will increase shock loads on the suspension arms and mountings. this is purely a cosmetic exercise.

F1 » Bottas sees potential FRIC advantage


rob. trust you to try and turn it into a red bull rant! the simple truth is that currently the system is classed as legal, wether merc, rbr, williams etc use it. and tell me, how do you know rbr have an advanced system? there has been no mention of this on any of the technical sites. still, maybe they inject co2 from their cans, into it, to make it work? but just like the dd which i (and you) considered not in the spirit of the rules, from the start, i said that i believed that fric was n effect an aero altering device. but when fia allowed it to be used, i accepted it. i doubt that it was charlies doing, cars have been scrutineered and passed as legal. but now that someone may have formally disputed it, it has to go to fia to decide if its legal or not. the dd, the coanda were also aero affecting and were allowed to last out their seasons. but this possible protest sounds more serious. there must be genuine doubt about its legality, and merc are running scared.

F1 » Bottas sees potential FRIC advantage


walker. it appears that ferrari at least, raised queries about the fric system. just surprised that it took them (or anyone else) so long to raise queries. leads me to think that the issue has been brought up some time ago, and nothing was done about it, leading to a threat of some protest. look at how quickly merc have been to say they will drop it for hockenheim. they are scared of a protest being upheld and its effect on their manufactured wcc.

F1 » Rosberg shrugs off Hamilton jibe


mr fill. nationality is governed by place of birth. however you can inherit a dual nationality by being a child of a person from a different country. nico was born in germany. his mother is german. his father is finnish. so nico has dual nationality....german and finnish. he opted to race under the colours of his birth country
