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

F1 » McLaren surprised by FRIC ban


walrus. remember hydrolastic suspension on austin morris cars? (there was an austin 1300 made for the american market).. it was on the principle that when the front hit a bump, the bag of fluid compressed, pushing more fluid to the back, raising the back to the new level. it kept the car level on the road. well fric is a bit like that but in reverse. under braking, when the downward pressure forces the nose down, fluid is forced into the front, raising it and lowering the back. this keeps the car level and maintains the effect of the diffuser. not sure if explanation is perfect, but basically, it does affect the aero performance of the car

F1 » McLaren surprised by FRIC ban


rob. the lotus system was not interconnection. it was based on braking causing the nose to rise, so as to maintain the stance on the track. operation was via the floating brake calipers, hence the comments that it was a "movable aero device). it was banned before it debuted. and rightly so. it had an effect on aero. i was surprised when merc introduced it as i considered that it too affected aero, and we discussed that at the time. but is peculiar that it has taken fia so long to realise that it indeed does affect aero. good to know that they listen to me! :) forgot to add....i just cannot understand why they have suddenly decided , mid season, that it is illegal.

F1 » Hamilton: Germany not Rosberg’s home race


some people wonder why others make fun of lulu. perhaps if he engaged his brain before opening his mouth to reply to a question (no matter how inane), people would respect him more. he reminds me of the type of comedian who starts to tell a joke, rolls around laughing before he has finished, not realising that the joke is not humourous, and nobody else is laughing, apart from the odd chuckle of embarrassment
