F1 » Manor Marussia: Jules was a shining talent


it wasnt appropriate to put this on the tribute page, but......... i have always admired manor for their perseverance, but i am now critical of them. they have lost two drivers and in both cases, the official findings have ascertained that the accidents were exacerbated by alterations to the electronics that manor used, giving the drivers little chance to minimise the possibility of an accident. in both cases electronics prevented the driver from steering away from the impending shunt. it is time that the fia stepped in and ensured that mods that removed control by the driver, should be prohibited. motor racing will always be dangerous, but when lightning strikes twice, it shows a certain disregard to safety, by the team.

F1 » GPDA: We must never relent on improving safety


ProfessorX: and I will just keep looking at those all-terrain 'tractors'/cranes with just enough room to drive under and lose your head. F1 needs to look at it's self in the mirror, those 'tractors'/cranes have killed more than one person in the last few years, and Maria de Villota might still be a live today if people took safety around 'raised' vehicles more seriously.
mein gott! did you see the accident? jules helmet did not even touch the tractor! it was the extreme sudden deccelleration that caused the brain to impact on the inside of the skull. similar to schumis skiing incident but at around 100 times the g.

F1 » Six of the Best: The hardest records to beat in F1


it always puzzles me why stirling moss gets so many plaudits for his 1955 mille miglia win,having practiced the route and with pace notes being read out by a co-driver. yet many overlook the fact that fangio drove entirely on his own, without practice and was way ahead of moss until he hit clutch trouble towards the end. and he still finished second. and then he also was magnaminous by letting stirling win the british gp when he himself was well ahead. sadly, there are no drivers like him in these modern days.
