F1 » I overreacted with Hamilton – Button


hrc. a sc would have gotten lulu up to within a couple of seconds max, behind nico. he was lapping faster and he would have had the benefit of drs behind bottas and then nico. lulu himself is criticising the lack of sc as it robbed him of the win. the fact is that there was NO sc, and in my opinion, rightly so. the car was not on the racing line, there was plenty of forewarning for the drivers, and it was swiftly removed. so why spoil an actual race just to allow a false result?

F1 » Rosberg wins but Hamilton recovers to third


breeza. i am not overlooking anything. it is not my opinion that the macca was the best overall, but all the acknowledged experts. as i said, go through old autosport mags, where they compare cars race to race and overall during the year. macca came out tops in two of the four years, yet lulu still managed to be no better than 4 th or 5 th in the wdc. so how is it that the "best drier" (as defined by his fanboys) cannot win in the best car? he was even beaten by ferdi in an abysmal ferrari?

F1 » Hamilton: I did as good as I could


his driving on sunday reminded me of his driving a few years ago, when he just took wild dives to try and get past.. ok, he was probably frustrated at seeing nico being able to extend his lead. so is he at the start of another melt down? he is certainly not a "thinking" driver. fast maybe , in the right car, but "thinking"? no way

F1 » Wolff would be ‘very surprised’ if title isn’t decided in Abu Dhabi


it is not 50 points that will be the difference, but 14. assuming that nico and lulu are the top two in the table and that both finish, then it would probably be the difference between 1st and 2nd. yes, 50 points are available, but only if one of them wins and the other has a dnf. but it will be interesting to see what happens in the race. if either can win the wdc, will merc favour one over the other? however, according to the conspiracy theorists on this site, it will be poor lulu who gets the short straw, all down to "manipulation" by the team!

F1 » Alonso praises ‘unbelievable’ Ricciardo


jagworth. frankly i do not believe that there should be any handicapping rule in f1. fia went overboard with their current fuel rule, requiring equally powerful engines (as the v8) to run with 30% less fuel. even in prior days, we did have cars running out of fuel, and that was without any restrictions, but more to do with miscalculations. ok, have a max amount of fuel to be allowed, but make it a sensile amount. remove the fuel flow restriction and then anyone who overboosts their engine, will suffer. or better still, return to na engines and /or limit the bhp at the rear wheels to a set figure. that is done in v8 supercars, and allows different engines all to provide close racing. (i have been converted to the max bhp idea since commodore mentioned that this is what was done in v8s)

F1 » Red Bull surprised by Mercedes brake change


breeza. you are advised not to use different linings on the same axle, but there is absolutely no reason why you cannot run different pads etc on different axles. when your mum gets her front disc pads changed, it is extremely unlikely that the rear pads will also be changed, as they last two or three times longer than the fronts. in f1, front and rear brakes run at different temperatures due to different loadings, thus requiring different materials! remember the calls to alter brake balance to try and protect either front or rear brakes?
