F1 » Manor Marussia: Jules was a shining talent


it wasnt appropriate to put this on the tribute page, but......... i have always admired manor for their perseverance, but i am now critical of them. they have lost two drivers and in both cases, the official findings have ascertained that the accidents were exacerbated by alterations to the electronics that manor used, giving the drivers little chance to minimise the possibility of an accident. in both cases electronics prevented the driver from steering away from the impending shunt. it is time that the fia stepped in and ensured that mods that removed control by the driver, should be prohibited. motor racing will always be dangerous, but when lightning strikes twice, it shows a certain disregard to safety, by the team.

F1 » Tilke rejects blame for boring F1 races


theeagle: They could very easily bring back Paul Ricard (France) and Imola. The latter one would be brilliant with old tamburello and SAFER (Steel And Foam Energy Reduction) barriers as they now have on the IndyCar speedways. That would be the day!
this came up the other day....paul ricard is owned by bernie, and he cannot afford the extortionate fees that bernie charges!

F1 » Six of the Best: The hardest records to beat in F1


it always puzzles me why stirling moss gets so many plaudits for his 1955 mille miglia win,having practiced the route and with pace notes being read out by a co-driver. yet many overlook the fact that fangio drove entirely on his own, without practice and was way ahead of moss until he hit clutch trouble towards the end. and he still finished second. and then he also was magnaminous by letting stirling win the british gp when he himself was well ahead. sadly, there are no drivers like him in these modern days.

F1 » Button hints at options beyond McLaren


ProfessorDave: With the exception of Schuey, in the past eighteen years no driver over the age of 33 has won an F1 World Championship . (Anyone who clicks disagree doesn't know the facts!)
why pick on 18 years? you could of course say 10 years. or you could of course say "since the inception of f1!", but then there would be a number of drivers. a random figure has no relevance.
