F1 » Mercedes dominance is good for F1, says Smedley

ProfessorX: What is the point in watching the rest of the manufacturers struggle to catch Merc at their own game, when the manufacturers could be finding their own and maybe even better ways to accomplish the same result.
if i remember correctly, when rbr were bending rules to beat merc and the like, you were on here accusing them of cheating. so what is ok for merc is not ok for others? your comments get weirder and weirder by the day.

F1 » Vettel: Difficult - but not impossible - to catch Mercedes

richard: and i always thought that the driver was very relevant to a cars performance. silly me
Does this applies Lewis and the current Merc
no, because the two cars and drivers have an unhealthy advantage. when vettel was driving, the second car and driver was trounced. ergo, it was not the car that had the advantage, it was the car / driver.

F1 » Vettel berates Rosberg over team-mate jibe

rob01: This just in. Nico has informed/invited Vettel to the Merc garage at the next race. And told him to bring his notebook. Vettel has been seen since he signed with Ferrari carrying a notebook. Makes him look cleaver I guess. My bet is that Ferrari tells him to stay out of the Merc garage. It would be a total embarrassment having the Red driver looking for help from another team. And for sure the Silver Arrows. Lets see if skittles replies.
oh well, it would save nico from tweeting the info , like some other plonker did!

F1 » Vettel: Difficult - but not impossible - to catch Mercedes

ProfessorX: unless vettel was leading the engine development for Renault, it really wouldn't have meant anything anyways.
and i always thought that the driver was very relevant to a cars performance. silly me! you well know that the renault engine was the least powerful, and the car was not dominant, otherwise webber would have been second in every race! the input from vettel was vital. and the team accept that they have lost their main asset. but you seem to know better?

F1 » ‘Below par’ Renault accepts it has ‘moved backwards’

ProfessorDave Actually I'd say gearing has nothing to do with speed trap figures, or at least it's not significant. The cars have 8 forward gears, all very close ratios. The ratios are nominated by each team before the start of the season. The only place where gearing might influence top speeds would be at Monza if some cars reach their rev limit in 8th before the end of the pit straight.
OMG. do you understand what gearing is? the engines can only operate at a certain rpm due to fuel flow restrictions. if your gearing is too low, your speed will be curtailed.

F1 » Rosberg: Germany has to be part of F1 calendar

rob01: Born in Germany and stayed for two days as an infant. Hasn't lived there since. Yes he is German.
so? i must admit that i wasnt in germany at the time to see that he was only there for 2 days? how did you find out? doesnt affect his birthright as being classed as german. a person gets their nationality from three sources. mothers nationality, fathers nationality, and where born. nico has german as two of these, and finnish as one. so i reckon, on average he is german. now, i have three nationalities, so which one am i?
