F1 » Brawn: Never say never to F1 return


ptolemy. brawn was a good manager, there is no doubt about that, but it is the DESIGNER that is more important nowadays. brawn had no real success with lulu, so he is not the magic ingredient. as vettel and newey have shown, the magic is reliant on the designer and the driver. if brawn did go back to ferrari, he would have to have a good designer to work with. so a combo of vettel and brawn would be pretty useless if they still had a dud designed car. unfortunately the true genius of the schumi brawn days was rory byrne, and he rarely gets any credit.

F1 » Brawn: Never say never to F1 return


kiwibob: Richard this years car was designed under brawn and to me it seems a pretty good car and that was the first year that lewis was there and to be fair brawn is an engineer so i think lewis and brawn did ok as the years before was MS and NICO
yes. this years car was designed UNDER brawn. brawn was the manager last year, but he was NOT the designer. further, this years car is good due to ENGINE, which had nothing to do with brawn. put the renault engine in the current merc car, and it would be nowhere! the bull chassis is better than the merc chassis. brawn studied engineering related to nuclear power, and as far as i know, the merc is not nuclear powered. brawn did not design the honda or the brawn or the previous mercs. nothing to do with lulu. nico is matching lulu and did little under brawn in the last few years. so i dont know why you bring lulu into the debate.

F1 » FIA bans driver performance radio messages


rgt. you seem to have something against me! have a look! i am the only person who has mentioned lulu? was i the first to bring up his name? so why do you single me out for your abuse? but lulu is relevant to this thread as he is the one who is constantly being given info by his team, and the blatant use of this info was very apparent over the last few races, and probably instigated this welcome crackdown.

F1 » FIA bans driver performance radio messages


hooorrraaaayyyyy. someone has been listening for once! unfortunately it doesnt go far enough.......even strategy calls should be banned, as should such calls as "your brakes are oveheating" etc etc. nut lulu wont be able to ask what settings nico is using, any more. that is unless he brings his mobile with him and gets tweeted. now, there is an idea.......

champers: @richard. Why do you keep bitching about Hamilton. This radio rule applies to all doesnt it. We know what people like Kimi think about radio chats...there is variety for all...lets see what comes of this..very little probably....
rgt. kimi knows how to drive a car and doesnt want the pits telling him what to do. so i have no complaint about kimi. but your pal lulu seems to have to get help in every race.

ProfessorX: the car itself can relay most of the "performance data" directly to the pilot anyways. & given the advice Lewis has received from his engineer this year, hes probably better off doing it himself, he just needs to know about his temps, and a few others, just use a few clever UI mods to the steering wheel and problem solved
yes, the car relays info through the steering wheel, such as tyre degradation, puncture, brake feel etc. but unfortunately some drivers have to be TOLD that there is a problem, as they cannot identify a simple problem themselves. take for instance lulus brake issues. he was told that his brakes were overheating. why? he was told that nicos were also overheating. why? he was told to alter his brake balance why? could he not work things out for himself? but you forgot to mention the yellow wire. wouldnt that solve all the problems?

George Zaidan: totally agree, in fact all radio communications should be banned except telling a driver to come in for a pit stop. BTW a pit stop does not stop at just a tire change. Let the drivers access their situation on the track.
why is it even needed for a team to tell a driver to make a stop? and if they did have to do that, they have pit boards to relay that message. its worked for around 100 years.

F1 » Montezemolo leaves Ferrari


nobody knows if ldm walked or was pushed. not too long ago there were signs that he wanted to take up a politica career, and there was even suggestions that he might stand for president. then he was associated with alitalia, which he has now joined as chairman. he was announced for the position BEFORE he announced that he was leaving ferrari. so i reckon that he has taken the decision himself. marchionne is not motor sport geezer, but is a businessman. i reckon that there will be a new appointment in the near future.
