F1 » What we learned at the Australian Grand Prix

oh come on....noise isn't everything! the RACING is what it all is or should be,about. there are tracks in the uk that have noise restrictions and cars have to run with silencers. doesn't detract from the racing, does it? yes,i loved the sound of the v12s etc, and bemoaned the change to the deep v8 sound, but I got used to it. then there were those moaning about the change of sound when the older turbos came in. then back to the v10/8 era. when the new turbo was announced, there were many here saying they didnt want wailing turbos. they said they wouldn't watch, but suddenly they are here again commenting. the new turbos ended up having a deeper an quieter note......SO WHAT? in a couple of months, you will be used to them, and if you love racing, you wont worry about the sound. but can now hear the tyres squealing!

F1 » 'Ferrari is behind' - Stefano Domenicali

nealio. what an odd post . Ferrari have a long history of being at the top, since the advent of gp acing. but no team can expect to remain as top dog for more than a few years. look at Williams, McLaren, brabham, lotus (the real one) etc etc Ferrari have by far, the longest reign at the top, and they are still the second best team. hardly mid field like macca, Williams etc. as for ferdi "besting" schumi , you do realise that schumi was getting older and that after 5 wdcs, there was always the chance that his winning streak had to end sometime

F1 » Ricciardo excluded from Australian GP

the cars cannot use more than 100kg of fuel in a race. now, if the flow rate of 100kg ph was their usage, then the cars would not last much over half the race. the flow rate is therefore at MAX rate of flow, but cars do not run at this max rate for a lap. its a bit like your normal car. put one gallon in your tank, and if you drive gently it might last 40 miles. drive at max revs, and you may get only 15 miles! that is why many were forecasting that there might be no finishers, or that the end of race could see an economy run. I asked before......if you have two sensors, one the official fia, and one of your own, and they give different readings, how do you know which one is right or wrong? rbr should have stuck with the official one and disputed later. instead they ignored the rules

bob. you DID attack others,and that is why I responded. rbr broke several rules, and if you don't understand that, you should not sow your lack of knowledge of these. I don't like the rules, but if they are there, they have to be respected! Rbr were told five times, over two days, that a certified product was showing over use. there is nothing to say that the unit fitted by rbr could have been under reading ? if rbr can change an fia sensor for their own, can they also change the fia ecu for one of their own? by the way, the sensor only MEASURES the flow, but does not CONTROL the flow.
