F1 » Ferrari: Engine development ‘first victory’


ty. not wanting to stray into sunnys territory, but the merc has advantage for several reasons. one of them being the correlation between electric and ice power. however, the position of the compressor part of the turbo does have an effect. it is sited to draw in cooler air which burns more efficiently than warmer air. that is why tuning firms on road cars, put in an intercooler to boost power. cooler air will provide more energy from the same amount of fuel as warm air. merc even use an exhaust header rather than a full manifold arrangement, to keep heat away from the compressor.

F1 » Vergne ‘can’t wait’ to work with Vettel, Raikkonen


Taz: I still remember Richard telling us what a dreadful idea it was him going to HRT....oh dear.
yeah, i did, and i would still maintain that! there is no point in putting an up-and-coming driver in a car that has not the slightest chance. (googol, please note that i was supportive of dr at that stage!!). some will say that it helped him learn the tracks, but he could have done that better in gp2. hrt had not a chance in hell of having any success no matter who was driving it! there is nothing to be gained from putting a potential f1 driver into a car that is going to trundle around last! caterham and marussia have shown that too. except for jules who was deliberately placed there by ferrari. was that a good placement? hardly. they would have been better putting him in a sauber.

richard:
rob01: His next victory will be eliminating tokens as Red is going to need a bunch.
well, he got them increased from 36 to 48!
Your new found interest in Ferrari is very noticeable. Has your new red blow up doll arrived yet?
rob. you seem to have an obsession with blow up dolls! has your lulu one burst? but check my posts, i have always been a supporter of ferrari, since the 50's, so it is hardly a "new found interest"! and bex=cause of certain connections, i am also a follower of rbr. and i am a follower of williams. so what?

F1 » Vergne eyes 2016 Ferrari race seat


googol. you can only compare two drivers when they are driving the same cars. my point is, and always has been , that when jev and dr were in the same cars, then jev (in a race) was the slightly better. now dr is in a better car, you cannot compare the two, but given that rhey were evenly matched, despite jev having less experience, then it must be considered that if he was in a rbr, then he would again be pretty equal with dr. and if you believe that dr is wdc material, then you also have to believe that jev is also the same.

Googolplex: Richard, For some strange reason Crash saw fit to remove my post where I simply pointed out that on 17 May 2013, 26 August 2013 and on 3 September 2013 you had posted that neither DR nor JEV deserved a race seat at Red Bull. I hope Crash isn't playing favourites.
i had to trawl back to that date, but that is the point. i said that jev and dr were equal but that they were not ready for a rbr seat at THAT time. 2013!!!! and if you hadnt realised, jev had only a years experience at that time. he was MATCHING and even beating dr. and to reinforce tys comments, jev was taken out on a number of occassions when he was running confortably ahead of dr. this is now 2015.
