F1 » Michelin turned down F1 over degradation request


the only reason that there is a requirement for a degrading tyre is "for the spectacle". the fia WANT pit stops as it adds "excitement " to a race. they also want tyres to have variable characteristics so that speeds can be artificially varied. to my mind, a race should be just that....a RACE. where a car can be driven flat out from start to finish and whoever is fastest wins.

F1 » Van der Garde begins legal hearing against Sauber


107SS2009: Mr Jones, Of course I can be wrong, I was stating my opinion, didn’t claim anything I said were facts. 24 hours to the hearing, but still asking myself, what Giedo hope to gain from his action? And from all this I can only surmise that the legal action by Giedo is not designed for anything other than to embarrass Sauber. GvDG in court on Monday and maybe is a Manor by Tuesday???.
as others have said. v de g has cooked his goose. he will never be taken up by another team now.

F1 » Ferrari: Three car teams not the solution


George Zaidan: Hey Rob01, I will be flying over the Atlantic on race day, please do me a favor and post the Finger if our hero Vettel wins, preferably the one with the 5's. Thanks buddy.
interesting to hear that seb was courted by ferrari back in 2008, and he was again approached in 2011 and 2013. it was schumis manager who persuaded him to move. no wonder ferrari told lulu to go swivel!

F1 » Manor pass FIA crash tests with updated 2014 car


kiwibob: 107 seems you know everything about F1 but can,t understand plain english if its a 2014 hub 2014 running gear and a new nose then to me its still the 2014 car but thats just my opinion which i thought people were allowed to express on here
maybe you should have a look at the differences required for a car to comply with 2015 rules. a 2014 car would be illegal, and if you had been following the news, you will have seen that manor wanted permission to run their 2014 car, and this was REFUSED by all the teams. so what they are running is a 2014 car with a number of modifications that were deemed required to comply with 2015 rules. they had to get new parts crash tested, so it is not just a new looking nose that they have. it is a modified car based on the 2014 tub. so it is in effect a 2015 car, edition one.

F1 » Manor pass FIA crash tests with updated 2014 car


107SS2009: I had a note (yellow post-it thing) stuck to the edge of my monitor which my wife must have removed when tidying up my mess and so I must have missed that note reminding me not to “never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience”.
sunny, i do hope that it was not a note from your wife , to you! :D

F1 » Manor: 2015 car unlikely to be ready until European rounds


107SS2009: Richard, What do you think his brief will be at manor?
well, its called trackside development...what ever that means. maybe he is going to design a new pit wall panel? :) seriously though, i have no idea! but his last "project" was to design a car to 2016 rules so that young drivers could get a superlicence. now, why on earth "design" a car, have it crash tested, fitted with an expensive and homologated engine and homologated chassis, if you are not going to actually compete? a young driver already has ways to get a superlicence, in other existing formulae. he sounds a bit like one of the wannabe designers on another technical site.

F1 » Manor: 2015 car unlikely to be ready until European rounds


107SS2009: LoveF1, Just try “googol” and see a picture (computer rendering) of the 2015 F1 car Perrin was intending to design, Looked very nice.
sunny. that looks just like any other f1 car. i cannot find that perrin has had any success at designing, and in fact, that will not be his brief at manor. ambitious maybe, but that does not mean much if you do not produce anything!
