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 » 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 » Hamilton: 'Very cool' to have won first F1 race in Russia


tommy. yes, whichever driver is ordained by merc, to win the wdc this year, he will have had an easy stroll. nico has had as many problems as lulu, and more when you consider the team orders he has complied with. but the reality is that lulu and nico are reasonably matched. damit. the bull was not the dominant car in the four years of their wdc wcc. it was the combunation of vettel and the bull. for two of his wdcs, the macca was considered by all to be the best car. that does not make the bull !dominant". and for all four years, the bull , macca, and ferrari were all closely matched. not like this year where the merc has 100bhp more. which reminds me, seb won the wdcs with 50-80 bhp LESS.

F1 » Hamilton: 'Very cool' to have won first F1 race in Russia


rob. oh dear, you are just mad that your favourite has been ousted from ferrari by seb! its funny how that little known journal, autosport, equate the cars every year, and they found that the macca was the best in two of the years. not dominant, but the best. nobody has had dominance like the merc this year, apart from brawn with thewir ingenious ddd, which you moaned about. and yes, where downforce has been paramount, the bull, despite being 100 bhp down on the merc engine, and despite a top speed some 20kph down as well, has been the car that has been closest to merc. they do indeed have the best downforce, again confirmed by sky etc, and if they had an equal engine, they would be at least on a par. and if the bull was "dominant" then why wasnt webber 2nd every year? something to do with the driver maybe?

corkey. i said that in this race, lulu had no competition due to nico having a big stuff-up. but when the two mercs are running, he is being fairly equaled by nico. i cannot remember webber in a "dominant " car , pushing vettel very much. especially during the time when macca was actually the best car, (with lulu driving too), yet lulu could only come 4th in the wdc. i never expected vettel to win 5 wdcs in a row, and in fact, after the second wdc, i didnt expect him to win a third! balance changes from year to year, and having different wdcs makes for more interesting f1. lulu could well win the wdc this year,, but if he does, it would have been an easy stroll for him, and there will be less credit due to him due to the merc being so dominant. and it is the CAR that is dominant, not the DRIVER! even m4xie could probably win in that car! (perish the thought!)
