F1 » Rosberg plays down lap times on medium tyre


MrJones85: I came on this website and told everybody that Mercedes were deliberately hiding there pace. So, this comes as no surprise to me. Things really have not changed. They will dominate this season once again. Hamilton vs Rosberg part deux.
self praise is no praise! but absolutely no-one can say how any car will do this year. dont forget, the merc might be good on medium tyres but it might be a pig on soft or on hard tyres! and two compounds have to be used in each race. other cars , such as ferrari, have also shown to be good on the mediums, beating comparative merc times. but cars in testing are not the same as cars that will be in the race, and set-ups will also be different! your words could well come back and bite you! now, as you know it all, what about telling me the numbers for this weeks eurolotto ? :D

F1 » McLaren blames wind for Alonso crash, slams electrocution rumours


the cars nowadays are so reliant on aero, and its control, that anything that can destroy the various induced vortices, can have a shocking effect on a car. i dont know how strong the gusts of wind were, but this is a very plausible reason. the cars are too aero sensitive and fia really need to do something to reduce this reliance. the fins that cars were using a few years ago gave them yaw stability. they were ugly, but maybe there is a need to re introduce these? look at the lmp cars, they have found that they need the fins to allow them to race in all weather conditions.

F1 » McLaren blames wind for Alonso crash, slams electrocution rumours


ProfessorDave: 1) Just asking.
1 if the car had drive and wind turned the car towards the wall, then of course he would be speared towards the wall. 2 changing down creates engine braking ! 3 why must he have been unconscious for the 15 secs? 4 90 mph is a hefty accident. you can be killed at 40 mph ! initial impact could easily have knocked him unconscious, but nobody knows at what stage he became unconscious.

F1 » Barcelona (1) - F1 test results [Combined]


kiwibob: Great to see kimi and nico ahead in times of they much vaunted team mates will be interesting to see what lewis and seb have in next test
ssiigghhh! there was only one car for each time, meaning that there is absolutely no way to compare any time between teamates. apart from that, they were running differing set ups and with test equipment etc...... you DO realise that this was TESTING, dont you! sheesh.

F1 » McLaren blames wind for Alonso crash, slams electrocution rumours


mtago......no, they are ugly enough already, but we may need uglier cars for SAFER racing. remember the audi tt? lovely flowing lines, but in crosswinds it had a habit of flipping. they had to destroy the lines with a spoiler to break up the airflow and keep the cars on the road. other streamlined cars that had a habit of flipping in windy conditions, were the dauphine and the beetle.

F1 » Hamilton identifies ‘strong’ Ferrari, Red Bull


benignlyindifferent:
richard: benignly. did you miss my trick question about fangio?
Richard, I think Fangio did return to win a second championship with Maserati, I believe. However, maybe I am missing something.
you were right on that, but i said that he basically did it TWICE. now, you need to know a little about motor racing history to work that one out!

F1 » Ferrari will supply Manor-Marussia with 2014 engines


goldenoldie: What's that as a thought? As Renault is looking to buy an exisitng team, why not Manor? Also would explains why Ferrari doesn't want to deliver them with the 2015 PU! Just a wild speculation, but I am not saying that it is true, just a fantasy! (lol)
ferrari cannot supply a 2015 engine because manor do not have a 2015 car. i am not sure if they even have a 2014 car, but if they have, the 2015 engine wouldnt fit! if renault wanted a team to buy (which i doubt) it would be str.
