F1 » Honda wants ‘fair competition’ in F1


zizzu of course a comment about the tyres by rb would say it benefited them, as it did for lotus etc. but you claimed that it was rbr moaning about the tyres that caused them to be changed. NO. it was complaints from rbr, ferrari, fia etc after the dangerous blow outs that caused the change in tyres. this went some way to redress the knowledge that merc had obtained by testing the new tyres in contravention of the rules. i dont give a rats backside if you do not take my comments as gospel. but the simple fact is that you cannot change actual facts, even to suit your desired viewpoint.

F1 » Five F1 champions who wouldn’t have made their debuts


Fullofit: There are a few problems with the new criteria ... A number of successful GP2 drivers have taken time out of competitive racing to take up full time test / reserve driver spots with current teams. Promising F3 drivers have stepped into DTM as it's been a legitimate feeder to F1 in the past.
not sure why you think that dtm is a feeder to f1. isnt di resta the only one who has moved into f1 but that was only due to it being a reward from merc? in fact, dtm is more of a refuge for former f1 drivers.

F1 » Honda wants ‘fair competition’ in F1


ProfessorX: I have no sympathy for Honda, they had a whole extra year to homologate something that is competitive. If HRC had bothered to homologate an engine last year, they would probably be in the same boat as the others, but it appears Honda have been sitting on their honchos.
nutty. still not recovered?? how many years were merc , renault and renault , developing their engines? now, how many years have honda spent? there is a difference of at least two years, or did you expect honda to work twice as fast as merc etc?

F1 » Five F1 champions who wouldn’t have made their debuts


at one time there were no restrictions as to whom could drive in f1, other than you had to have a full driving licence before you could even get a competition licence! but as there was no sponsorship, racing was for the well off, so there was little problem. then came a requirement that you had to serve your apprenticeship in f2, but that seemed to fall by the wayside, and anybody can apparently get a superlicence now. but really, the current system and even the proposed system is in chaos. in my opinion, no matter how good you are, there should be a requirement to do at least a year in f3, and then at least a year in f2 (or wsr). these would be to gain you actual racecraft. ok, i know some child prodigies may suffer, but if you at least set down a workable and sensible rule, they will know that they have to work their way up to f1!

fuller. i think that it is you who does not understand the rules! first of all, as honda agreed late to re enter f1, the only engine that they can provide for 2015, is a unit made to 2015 homologation rules. oddly enough though, there is NO designated date for homologation for 2015 for any engine, be it a new or a modified pu. secondly, there is NO homologation date for engines for 2015, so teams can continue to use the engines used in 2014, as these are already homologated. fia admitted that they overlooked the need to set a date, but the simple fact is that if any team uses their 2014 engine, then they are doing nothing illegal. honda cannot use anything other than the unit they are producing for 2015, as they have no previously homologated unit to fall back on!

Fullofit: Merc, Ferrari & Renault had free development for the years leading up to their official first homologation of their engines in 2014 & now have tokens to fix the mistakes they made. Everyone should get the same treatment.
thems the rules! merc ferrari and renault were the only three manufactures to sign up for these rules several years ago. honda had the time to see what the others had done and therefore did in fact gain a head start. they also recruited some personnel who had knowledge of the other units. and what happens if honda produce a better pu? then the others would be moaning that they have an advantage and their restricted use of tokens wouldnt allow them to catch up?? if you dont like the rules, then dont try to join in...but obviously honda were happy to do so!

See Richard, there your contradict yourself. "
absolutely no contradiction! honda can only use an engine in 2015 that is homologated for 2015. what else could they use? but you say there are dates in the rules for homologation....there arent! and that is why other teams can use their 2014 engu=ines if they want. as for the threat that is rumoured about a protest if they do? well that could not possibly proceed as no rule would be broken!!

Zizzu10: Please tell me a sport that has a level playing field? Do you think Manchester United and Crystal Palace are operating on a level playing field?
last time i went out with my spirit level, i found that indeed they were both playing on level playing fields! bur seriously, how on earth can you equate f1 (or any motor sport) with football??????
