F1 » Michelin turned down F1 over degradation request


rob01: Michelin should stay out. The last time they graced the US they ended up only doing parade laps. it is still considered by many the worst F1 grand prix ever.
it was not actually michelins fault. fia had specified the structure of the tyre but had negelcted to realise that the tyre had to withstand the increased loading of the banking. michelin had provided the tyre requested. they walked out of f1 due to the fia inteference, and have again declined to participate for the same reason.

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 » Manor pass FIA crash tests with updated 2014 car


Stuey99: Yeah mate, they're planning on flying half way around the globe with all their equipment after rushing through the crash test just to watch the race.
do you actually follow f1 ? by turning up, they can get 40m that they are owed for last year, plus appearance money. it might cost them a couple of hundred thou to ship the stuff out, but if the reward is 40m +, it obviously makes sense!

F1 » Van der Garde begins legal hearing against Sauber


1Jez:
richard: if i am correct, it will be FRENCH law that would prevail.
I don't think you are correct. Why would France have legal jurisdiction? Sauber is a Swiss company, so the contract would have been executed in Switzerland and apparently broken in Switzerland. How does France have anything to do with it? Don't say because the FIA is in France - they have nothing to do with the contract between a driver and his or her employer.
all contracts are controlled and approved by the fia and are subject to french rulings!

F1 » Manor pass FIA crash tests with updated 2014 car


kiwibob: Richard which part of 2014 car are you misiing everyone knew it was to be modified to meet this years specs still 2014 car
the initial request from manor was to use the 2014 car in total, and this required the assent of all the other teams. manor had lost all their facilities to construct a new car for 2015. however, what they have done is to use the 2014 tub and then fitted it with a legal 2015 nose crash structure. so it now complies. the problem now is that they will have to use a 2014 spec ferrari engine, which will be pretty dire compared to the 2015 engine. and as for tazs odd comment, i have always supported and stood up for the team,

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!
