F1 » Rosberg wants 'F1 constructors’ title out of the way’


Salan:
tommytrojan1: No offence, Taz - just don't see the need - even if in jest - to stir up negative feelings when there aren't any among any of the Crash community! :-)
If I may touch on your comment by adding my own observation. The tone amongst the posters here has definitely changed. Once upon a time, there use to be an atmosphere of friendly banter between apposing posters here, regrettably the comments nowadays have (for want of a better word) become bad-natured and petty. Entrenchment has become the norm and it's vastly becoming trolls-R-us on here now.
quite right salan. there was a time when a few of us were able to discuss f1 in a knowledgable and light mannered way, and then the site became affected by the trolls, especially one multi-name poster, who sadly still infects the site.

F1 » Kate Walker: Melting the glacier


Welshie: So within a year of bringing out the new engines, it looks like 4 teams are going broke!
mallya (force india), fernandes (caterham) , marussia have been going broke for the last few years. remember marussia and caterham were going to merge last year. sauber have been on a knife edge for several years too, but this year, after russian loot failed to materialise, they do seem to be in dire straits. (ha, didnt dire straits make a song "money for nothing"?) so it has nothing to do with the new engines.

F1 » Kaltenborn: Sauber merger difficult


here4. not all teams would run three teams! further, they have all turned down the possibility of 3 car teams. and of course, you didnt include haas in your list! they could well take over / merge with marussia. sauber will survive in some form or another. maybe also merge with haas / marussia? caterham have little or no chance of surviving, but a merger of lotus could give them a temporary reprieve. and then there is the mythical corsa rossa? could they take over lotus?

F1 » Red Bull won’t employ team orders


ProfessorX: Meredes and by proxy, Williams, have a huge engine performance margin, imo. So much that they can tack on a lot of extra down force and and do what Red Bull did last year.
nutty 20.1. do you understand downforce? downforce is what provides the grip on the corners, but causes drag on the straights. it is the straights were merc is faster, indicating that they actually have less downforce. the bulls are no slower on the corners. so by inference, the merc does not really handle all that well, and is only relying on engine power to keep them ahead. look at singapore. a place where downforce is paramount, and the bulls were able to keep up, even with 100 bhp less. back to the drawing board for you!
