F1 » Maldonado: Lotus has done a lot of clever work for F1 2015


Superhunky: He is slow. Simple as that , a journeyman with money where nothing less than a huge technical advantage, or a huge amount of luck will deliver him anything but a small chance to be at the sharp end.
ok ok. we get it . you dont like maldo. but your comments do not hold water. he is fast when he has a good day! he has raced close to the front and beaten wdcs! he needs the right car. but can you tell me the name of any "journeyman" that has won a gp, or even podiumed?? i dont rate him very highly and i dont like where his cash comes from, but he does not deserve such comments.

F1 » Maldonado: Lotus has done a lot of clever work for F1 2015


Superhunky: It baffles me he crashes so much when he is so slow. A classic case of a little bit of talent and a lot of money to buy a seat can get you an F1 drive in the present economic climate.
he is not slow. look how he drove the williams to podiums and a win, when no one else was! but when you drive an uncompetitive car, there is a tendency to overdrive, and some of his crashes were not his fault, but happened because he was where someone else didnt expect him to be

F1 » Haas F1 team purchase Marussia factory


Superhunky: so what on earth does this leave Lowdon and Booth to sell to anyone ? Marussia have seemingly nothing left yet still we hear noises of a buyer for Marussia ! Can someone explain what there is to buy outside of bad debt and potential liability ?
an entry on the grid, and the possibility of a 40m return! but i seem to recollect that haas was reported to have bought the marussia factory, over a month ago! so this appears to be old news

F1 » Williams releases first look at 2015 F1 car


Googolplex:
richard: oh come on! who cares what the cars look like as long as they are fast and competitive. its called evolution.
I find that if they go fast, they start to look fast and if they go slow, they start to look slow.
good observation. many cars ave started a season being criticised for their appearance but when they show that they are fast, as you say, they are then considered icons.

F1 » Haas F1 team purchase Marussia factory


Buzz45: So what are the chances of Marussia being on the grid in Oz?
totally zero. no such entity as marussia exists. marussia was a russian car maker (?????) who were title sponsors of manor f1. marussia the manufacturer went belly up last year but manor f1 had entered as marussia and so had to retain the name until the end of 2014. if the team (manor f1) was to be on the grid for 2015, then it would have had a different name. but haas has not bought the team, he has bought the factory! so he has absolutely no right to the team's intellectual property!

F1 » Williams releases first look at 2015 F1 car


robert.donovan.54922: Would you buy a Checker Marathon if it were still ugly, but performed like a Corvette? F1 cars should be aesthetically striking and have the best performance in the world. Check out the Lotus 49, the Lotus 72 and Gurney's Eagle. .
if a checker outperformed a corvette, then yes, why not? it would be performance that i would be looking for. and i reckon that the williams would outperform all those you have listed above. and some of the world fastest performing jet fighters are plain ugly, but would leave something like the talon standing. if you want to win, you have to be fastest, not the prettiest, unless you are in the miss universe contest!
