F1 » Lauda endorses ‘selfish’ Mercedes driver tactics

rob01: Fans that dislike the reigning champ want Merc to NOT use team orders. No other number one driver has to put up with the constant crap lewis is having to live through.
rob, you are right for once. and that is simply because no other number 1 driver is so devious or arrogant. did you see him prancing around the podium during the interviews? wearing his hat backwards during the chinese national anthem? etc etc

F1 » Wolff: Lewis didn’t slow on purpose

Corkey: Come on richard, are you for real? These are racing drivers, they can drive how they like. If it was Vettel driving slowly you would be praising him for showing initiative to keep his teammate in dirty air. If Hamilton was driving too slowly for Rosberg, he should have overtaken him. That is what racing drivers do..
yes corkey, i am real, like it or not. sometimes it pays to know a little about the sport. the two mercs could run at comparable speeds, but lulu was preventing nico from maintaining his speed and keeping seb behind. if two cars have similar speeds, then the following one can be handicapped by slowing down enough to cause aero unbalance to the car behind, and so preventing an overtake. nico knew he had to have a faster speed but lulu was preventing it. why do you think lulu was given a certain ultimatum by the team? just for fun? no, but because the team saw what was happening !!!

F1 » Wolff: Lewis didn’t slow on purpose

BryanG: Richard - it definitely pays to know a little about the sport - from what you are saying it must be impossible to pass a slower car. .
yes, it does pay to know about racing! if you have two cars of equal performance and equal driving ability, it will of course be impossible for the car behind to pass. and that is not the issue! the issue was about driving slightly slower to make the following driver have problems and back him up to another competitor. as i have said, vettel confirmed the situation, as he could not pass nico either, for the exact same reason. nico DID run at the same paces as lulu, and that is where the problem lies. and why do you think that merc "threatened" lulu, if not to prevent nico being put into vetels clutches.

F1 » Wolff: Lewis didn’t slow on purpose

BryanG: If Nico could not close on Lewis when he was going 'slow' how did he expect to go faster when Lewis did? He was not even in the DRS zone. Frankly this is the most pathetic excuse for not performing that I have ever heard. Since when is it a racing drivers responsibility to look after his team mates tires?
bryan. did you read the comment? even vettel confirmed that driving closish to another car destroyed the front tyres, and that is why he was also not able to get within striking distance of nico, even though he was faster at the time!

F1 » Start shapes end for Ricciardo

Oldguru: At least Renault have accepted some of the blame for the poor results from the Chinese Round (4 ICU for the round). Whoever programmed the controls on the new engine fitted to Danial's car before the main race did a poor job of programming the start sequence clutch engagement settings.
finger problem! he borrowed webbers fingers !

F1 » Chinese Grand Prix – Race results

tommytrojan1: Keep a close eye on young Max - he's going to get snapped up by a top team VERY soon....
Snapped up? Even though he's perform admirably his resume still needs some work. I'm pretty sure any top team would like to have him finish on the podium a few times before snapping him up!
read tommys post again. he said TOP team. being in str is unlikely to get him on the podium, even though a youngster did manage that a few years ago.
