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 » Ricciardo: Ferrari title more appealing to Vettel


bob jane: Seriously a mental breather? So you are saying he wasn't really it giving a100% in 2014?????Crap!!!...if he wanted a mental breather he would of taken the season off..he was uncompetitive and struggled with the new regs and soundly beaten by a nobody and made rookie pressure mistakes all season...
bobby! your namesake would not have made such an idiotic comment as that! clearly you didnt see seb get closer to pole than dan. nor did you see the constant mechanical woes that affected him either. he had bad luck this year, just as ricciardo had good luck due to failure of mercs.

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.

F1 » Veteran Coulthard beats young guns to Race of Champions crown


ZEDX:
richard: congrats to dc, and also rising star pascale. but i think that this must have been the poorest lot of drivers ever in the history of roc. where were the champions? and apart from big john, where were the f1 contingent?
Oh.. c'mon Richard... look at the entry list again! There were some BIG names in there.. and mostly very experienced racers from differing categories including an off-road champion! Given his non-current driver status, I say very well done, DC!
yeah. i am looking at the entry list! now compare it to previous years....! and i DID congratulate dc!
