F1 » F1: Mattiacci sees Raikkonen’s pace improving

mattiacci was drafted in in april of this year and it is unfair to criticise him at this stage. he may be the answer, and he may not be. he is part of the new broom at ferrari and possibly his business background will give him a new perspective on the team. what with the new ceo, the new driver etc, we could well see a revival of ferrari fortunes in f1. only time will tell

F1 » Toro Rosso pair call for answers on fuel

rob01: Rich.. the teams had 3 plus years to work on the new formula. Now begging for a redo.
rob. most of that was to design. the pus did not run until last november. and hpe spotted a loophole in the regs that allowed a split turbo. all credit to them for that. but now, you and others expect hnda to have a perfect pu for next year, and they have not been developing for 3 years, or even 2. in fact, their pu has not run yet. with any new formula, it takes years to perfect. remember the renault turbos? everybody laughed at their problems, but after a few years, everybody had been persuaded that turbos were the way to go

F1 » Toro Rosso pair call for answers on fuel

nutty and g o. to even consider ballast in f1 is totally ridiculous. f1 is the pinnacle and just because some car/driver combo gets into a winning streak, you want to handicap them so someone else can win??? when one car or a driver has an advantage, no matter how big or small, it is up to the others to catch up!THAT is what f1 should be about! if you want ballasted cars , to create equality, then go and watch some other form of motor sport that allows it. nutty, i dont see you on motogp saying that marquez should carry some lead in his pants, so that others can catch him!! where fia has lost track of what f1 is all about, is the imposing of more and more rules to hobble the best. with a new pu this year, it would have been far better to allow full development through the season. now THAT would have allowed better and closer racing.

F1 » Horner: Mercedes have done best job in F1 2014

107SS2009: RBR intended for Vettel to use his sixth PU and take his penalty in Sochi but Russian customs prevented any new parts from being flown in. And the following although not on topic might interest some, Caterham race cars and equipment in Sochi would not return to the UK despite the three week break, the cars together with all kit required to service and maintain the vehicles over the race week end along with spars have been sent to Colin Kolles facility Grading Germany, this is understood being done to avoid the winding-up hearing scheduled for Caterham sports ltd on November 11.
and kolles is behind the proposed new f1 team "rossa" ! so maybe he is trying to keep the equipment etc for himself? their retiring of koba in russia was most odd too.

F1 » Mercedes’ title overshadowed by Bianchi

cliff. funny, i was just talking to a friend this morning about that. ferrari are the only true manufacturer in f1. as you say, merc just bought up outside companies to create their car. i wonder, who designed the engine. was it ilmor/hpe or was it designed over in stuttgart? mercedes have taken a sledgehammer to crack an egg. really it is a pity that they could not do everything in-house.

F1 » Ricciardo’s poor start ‘frustrating’

rob01: yes I heard that most of sebs car was made up from duct tape and they used natural gas to fuel it as they didn't have enough for two cars. And that he used the same tires from Q3 only mounting them backwards so it would be more difficult. Do we really need an excuse everytime Vettel has an issue beating dan.
well i have to keep up with all the excuses that you had to make every time that lulu got beaten. and that was a hell of a lot of excuses.
