F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2014: 9th


BtwnDitches: I realize that this poll is more of a fan "gut preference" (or nationality loyalty) thing than a hard, close review of performance statistics. But, looking at every race in which he participated, and reviewing all top-down placements in qualifying and final race placements, one has to ask: "How many times was Kvyat logged even at 9th place?" Too few, I submit, for him to earn this rating - especially above someone like Hulkenberg.
you have to take many things into account. dani was a rookie, hulk isnt. dani drives a lower grod car, hulk is imn a higher grid car. dani has renault power, hulk has merc power. so overall, i would agree that dani merits a good placing.

F1 » Kate Walker: ‘Scuderia Ferrari has been reorganised’


Dreadnaught: No possibility that the management changes have anything to do with Arrivabene ( how does that translate) he has not been there long enough and is anyway a tobacco marketing man not a management guru. .
and you know this...how? i bet that you had not heard of arrivabenne before, so how can you prejudge his worth? and remember, briatore was a benetton salesman and was drafted in and did a good job! people have different skills and i am confident that he will have no problem adapting to his new position.

F1 » Ecclestone calls for F1 power unit to be dropped


some of those now moaning above, are those who were calling for the v8s to be retained and for no v6 turbos. now suddenly they are saying leave the current engines!!?????? bernie and others are calling for a change back to v8 or similar, and you criticise him? why? it basically makes sense and at least we might get back to proper racing. it is not just the price that is the problem, after all, ferrari and renault are not going to accept a cheaper merc engine to be used by their teams. it is mercs intransigence that is the problem, and so that makes the best alternative to go back to cheaper na engines.

F1 » Fry and Tombazis out amid Ferrari F1 shake-up


ian. vettel has no illusions. he has stated that it will probably take a few years to get the car capable of winning the wdc. but this shake up at ferrari is certainly a concerted effort to improve the situation, and i would expect to see considerable progress next year. and how do you know that vettel cannot assist in turning ferrari around? he is dedicated to the extent that he stays on in the garage helping out and learning. he also did an engineering degree to help improve matters. and ferrari are by no means a long long way from winning. you can rest assured that they will get there quicker than you think.

F1 » Dennis expects to promote more young F1 drivers


MikeP: Translation. "I did not want old-dog Button. I am cheesed-off they made me keep him. I will be rid of him......in the name of "opening the door for young drivers" of course....." Ron is a swell guy.
interesting. the last young driver he promoted messed up the team and dennis now says that he started all the trouble. does ron ever learn from his mistakes???

F1 » Red Bull has ‘real desire’ to catch Mercedes


hunterman: As i said great heads at Mercedes have found away to disengage the turbine and compression wheel along the shaft eliminating turbo lag as the compression wheel on the Mercs is bigger than the Renault and Ferrari. More wins for Lewis in 2015
i echo sunny! what total BS! turbo lag is eliminated by using kgu to keep the turbo spinning! all teams do this. it is part of the regs. and, the shaft between turbo and compressor has to be solid. why on earth will you not read up on the regs? we might hear less BS from you if you did.

F1 » Ecclestone calls for F1 power unit to be dropped


Patton: First get rid of Bernie, then the little V6 turbos ,big V10's no limit on fuel use. Big wheels and tires less electronics ,only 4 people in the pit. That would be a very good start!
ha. i was commending bernie for threatening to push through na v8s again and got 4 disagrees. now, three of the next 4 posts also call for these to return! but if you agree that is desirable, then , patton, why do you call for bernie to go? he is doing what you want, so isnt it best that he stays, at least for a while?

F1 » Red Bull has ‘real desire’ to catch Mercedes


mytyresaregoingoff: I thought Merc split the turbo from the compressor allowing them to sit either away from each other and giving better gas flows and shorter pipe runs. The clever bit was balancing the long (solid) joining shaft. Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
yes. it is a split turbo but the turbo and compressor are linked by a solid shaft. the bright hunterman said that merc were uncoupling the units! ferrari also use a split turbo, the advantage of a split turbo is that there is no heat from the turbo getting to the compressor., thus providing a cooler charge and hence more power.
