F1 » Alonso talks crash, contradicts many McLaren claims


BtwnDitches: My question is whether or not the steering system on that car is sourced from Honda or someone else? .
why??? what difference would it make if it was supplied by honda?? and why on earth would honda supply a steering system? they are contracted to supply a pu, and steering is nothing to do with pu. the steering system is most likely manufactured in-house as it would e a one-off system

F1 » Adrian Sutil named as Williams reserve driver


ZEDX: She has actual racing time,They must have plenty of cash to pay her salary plus Sutil's for what is effectively job duplication.
Pray tell! what actual racing time? a couple of years in dtm courtesy of toto, and no point to show for it. as for paying her "salary". well, toto owns part of williams (against fia rules as far as i am aware), so i reckon that he is paying for her position.

F1 » Hamilton: Mercedes didn’t complain when it wasn’t winning…


ProfessorX: asking for rule clarifications and complaining about performance disparity are not really the same thing. Apples and oranges richard.
nutty. sunny says there is no point in responding to your obtuse pronouncements, and i am inclined to believe him to be right. but....when rbr where mapping their engines to improve performance, merc complained. and all their calls for "rule clarification" were all to do with the performance of the bull and mercs desire to cut back their performance advantage. if you dont understand that, then you are sad!

F1 » Six of the Best: Here comes the rain again...


Vincero:
Firefly: Malaysia 2001 anyone?
Definitely not... Ferrari International Assistance at its finest. Everyone pits and changes to full wets except Ferrrari who go to intermediates.... safety car keeps them all out for so long that by the time they get going intermediates are the best tyres to be on.... Possibly the biggest fix in F1 during that year as Ferrari would have been essentially a lap down on the wrong tyres, but were insted only a few seconds off the lead on what would be the right tyres. That's the sort of thing Schumacher owes his 7 titles to.
yes , being clever and persevering on a tyre others thought inappropriate. clever man, schumi!

F1 » Alonso talks crash, contradicts many McLaren claims


here we go again with speculation. yes, ferdi was conscious after crash as there are photos of him getting out of the car. yes he was then sedated so as to avoid any possible injury to brain from escalating (normal practice). he was concussed and his memory was befuddled so he is just saying what he thinks or believes happened. telemetry has shown certain facts that differ to what ferdi says, but that is understandable. he does not have 100% clear memory of events, and probably never will have. it happens in a crash

F1 » Button: McLaren must bridge gap on rivals


2secondsperlap: @ richard It was also said that Honda tuned down the performance of the engine so to save damage. Apparently they got a lot of useful data from Aus.
yes, and that is why i consider the honda to be potentially good. if a turned down engine can circulate in the points, it cannot be too bad. when it comes on song and the problems have been sorted, i reckon that merc will become worried.

F1 » Button: McLaren must bridge gap on rivals


surprisingly button was not doing too badly in oz. he was circulating in the points until about 10 laps from the end, when something went wrong in the pu, but he managed to still bring it home to the flag nobody would expect a brand new pu to be as quick as others who were at least a year ahead. also, like renault, honda are still using the 250 bar at injectors whereas merc and ferrari are using 500bar. so if fia efforts to monitor fuel flow at various points, is successful, you could suddenly find that renault and honda are suddenly competitive.

F1 » Renault slams Red Bull, accuses it of ‘lies’


goldenoldie: Newey is mistaken in stating that RBR not being competetive is only due the Renault PU.
and what makes you so sure of that? newey has not designed any duds so far, and i would not expect him to do so now. if you have a down on power PU, you cannot exploit the best features of a car designed to have more power. i would not expect my merc to be as fast with only 5 cylinders out of 6 working. ( and yes, i have the misfortune to own a merc, which is in the garage nearly as much as it is on the road!)

F1 » Mercedes still wary, says it can't back off


mguh: The good thing though if Nico does not step up his game we can still enjoy the double world champion stroking and caressing this super car through the bends and chicanes and delivering what this teams deserves which is maximum respect.
i hadnt heard that ferdi had joined merc! that is great news. mind you, they could do even better by signing up a 4 times wdc.
