F1 » F1 Accident Panel: ‘Bianchi did not slow sufficiently’


it is a rather obvious comment for the panel to make.....bianchi "did not slow sufficiently". but he did slow MORE than others going through the bend. yes, it wasnt sufficient, but he did make an effort to slow. the real blame seems to be with the electronics that werent compatible with what he wastrying to do when he began to go out of control. to sweat....his reactions were correct and prompt, but it was the fault of the electronics that prevented his reactions from being effective. these electronics had probably never been tested in such a situation before, so jules would have been unaware on how to correct the problem.

F1 » F1 Accident Panel: ‘Bianchi did not slow sufficiently’


i think that all this talk about a tractor should not be there, is superfluous. unfortunately, due to length of tracks etc, it is impossible to have external lifting devices. and what happens when a car is in the middle of a track and even a lifting crane could not reach that far? of course jcbs etc have to be used, and provided precautions are used, they can be operated safely. what some appear to be missing is the fact that there was actually NO gravel tra[ where this occurred, the car was on grass and service road. so gravel, even if it has its own dangers (flipping) would have at least slowed down the car, with or withoudtthe assistance of braking.

F1 » LAST CHANCE: VOTE for your 2014 F1 Driver of the Year!


junglist. first of all congratulations on being a quarter of a century old! secondly, if would teach you a lot to read about f1 as it was, and even more so, the period before the early 50s when it was called gp racing and there was no "formula". unfortunately there is no definitive book on the sport, but i think you should call into your local library and look at the motor sports section. you will find the conditions that prevailed in the past, explains why older people say that the current drivers have it easy. but be careful, some books are written by writers who know nothing about the sport, but just research snippets and try to put them together to create a book. happy reading.

F1 » Raikkonen: Ferrari will learn from 2014


Sasha Alexandrovich: Mercedes will destroy Ferrari with any engine concept they come up with. Such is the difference nowadays between Mercedes (and VAG, BMW, Toyota) engineering and Ferrari. Ferrari knows how to make big capacity horsepower and have no clue about fine fuel saving, fine turbo balancing and finetuning hybrid technology. They are in the deep brown stuff for at least a decade, no multimillion dollar contract with multichamps is going to change that.
i fully agree with GO. you seem to know more than anyone else, and even though i have some contacts, nobody is predicting that. in fact, renault are going to a repackaged disc turbo which will allow better performance and a lower c of g. and this should bring them very close to merc. not sure what ferrari are doing yet, but probably something fairly similar. and by the way, ferrari have far MORE turbo knowledge than merc. they have run turbos before!!

F1 » Renault F1 has ‘huge job list’ for 2015


rob01: he (lewis)now states he has a contract next year and that the deal for 16 will get done.
rob lulu originally signed a contract for 3 years...2013, 2014 and 2015, so he does not need to say that he now has a contract for 2015. he has had one sine he joined merc. as regards 2016, negotiations now are commencing, but if merc do not offer enough, there is no guarantee that lulu will sign. of course he could be holding out for kimi to retire and hope that he will get the number 2 seat to my great great grandson. ferrari may do a u turn by then, if he is lucky!

F1 » Renault F1 has ‘huge job list’ for 2015


Optimaximal: Richard, the token system has nothing to do with car development - it's purely an engine manufacturer thing. The only reason Ferrari & Renault were holding back on their development tokens was in case they managed to convince Mercedes to allow in-season development. Of course, the Germans have said 'NEIN' which means they've (or at least Renault) have underspent on their tokens and don't have the time to competently spend them.
tokens are not only in respect of engine. they also apply to ers systems etc, which are classed as part of the car

F1 » Renault F1 has ‘huge job list’ for 2015


rob. you are falling behind again! if all their "tokens " were used up on the pu, then they would be unable to alter their car! apart from that, ferrari (at least) have been at work on their pu since last july! i am sure that renault were doing the same as well. in fact, both have already indicated that they will have caught up on merc by next year. but we will have to wait and see if that is fact or not.

F1 » Horner: 2014 one of Red Bull’s best F1 seasons


beastinblack: The point is Red Bull are just a bunch of spin doctors when it comes to PR
i think that all teams will make the same or similar comments, apart from caterham! williams....best season ever mclaren....best season ever force india....best season ever etc etc what do you expect horner to say? they made the best job of all the renault engined teams, therefore in the aspect of improvements, it was a monumental effort, and they succeeded fairly well.
