F1 » McLaren is scary to drive, says alarmed Button


theoldgitspeaks: Alonso didn't seem to have any problems, maybe this is one of Button's periodic AWOL periods when he seems to totally lose the plot, not a good time for one I would have thought, we might just see Magnussen in the car if it goes on for too long.
interesting that jenson is saying precisely what some so-called experts were denying happened when ferdi had his accident! the car goes into snap changes of direction when off throttle, and also is badly affected by gusts of wind

F1 » Raikkonen bemoans ‘disturbing’ Williams tendencies


ProfessorX: the best thing Ferrari can do for next year is to take Lewis Hamilton away from Mercedes. as for "vortices" that's a nothing but a buzzword (in this context), the wake or eddies behind the car are so much more damaging to the car behind than vortices which are used to enhance the effectiveness of the air pressures over the surfaces of the car.
nutty. another of your fails? these wings require clean air to perform properly. now if you are following a car that is creating multiple vorticies with their front wing and other appendages, your own front wing cannot run in clean air and is less effective, causing the tyre problems etc, as evidenced by lulu, nico and seb all mentioning it. but hey...what do they know? they arent professors are they?

F1 » McLaren is scary to drive, says alarmed Button


ProfessorDave: There's a big difference between sudden wheelspin and the 'steering locking' as Alsonso described as the reason for his his crash.
two things. first ferdi says that he did not remember the incident! so it was speculation that the steering locked. in fact, telemetry showed that it didnt and that ferdi tried to correct! secondly, having a sudden retardation of the rear, throwing the car off balance, could cause a driver to suspect that it was the steering at fault. however, ferdi didnt know what happened

F1 » Raikkonen unmoved by Ferrari gap to Mercedes


i do wish that some would see the difference between downforce and mechanical grip! there is absolutely nothing to say that merc have more downforce than anyone else. their advantage is that they harvest and transmit the electrical end of the pu in a more efficient manner. they can garner power more quickly and can also use it sooner. in a straight line it was pretty clear that the ferrari was only a miniscule behind the merc, but as they came out of corners, they could add the ers more efficiently and gain their slight advantage. remember the days that minis were beating the far more powerful galaxies and lotus cortinas? all down to grip out of corners. they were less powerful and less aero kindly than the others.
