F1 » Vettel: Mercedes engine turn up explains ‘fake Friday’ results

rob01: A friend of mine on here says that sandbagging is a myth. No one is going to run different than what the car will allow. It would be stupid to not run systems as you will on race day. Vettel spewing bull crap if you ask me.
rob, your dislike of vettel really clouds your judgement! it has been openly discussed here and on other sites that merc has some system that allows them to obtain a bit more power when required. in fact fia are aware of it but cannot find the trick. it has something to do with overboost by raising wastegate pressure. also, in the likes of qualy, the drs can be used at any time meaning that a slippery car in drs open form, can gain an advantage. however, merc only have a slight edge in race trim. witness austria, where but for 10 secs lost in the pits, vettel would have been actually pushing lulu for 2 nd place

F1 » Driver aid restrictions introduced from Belgian GP

ProfessorX: that will just slow the cars down even more and make GP2 the pinacle of 4 wheels. I don't really see your point rich. If you want less down force and skinny tires, watch formula ford.
nutty. well if ff had 1000bhp engines then yes, i would prefer watching it as it would be a better display of driver control! it is you who is missing the point. you want more action? well you wont get that if you have cars that are glued to the road at any speed. do you not like it this year, to see cars drifting, sliding etc?

F1 » Driver aid restrictions introduced from Belgian GP

here4thesun2: These people worry me that make the decisions. If you have wider cars and wider tires, you don't need the 'more aerodynamics'.
yes you do. more surface area to play with and therefore more downforce making the cars even stickier to the track. which then means less sliding when combined with wider tyres and bigger contact area. they actually need to REDUCE the benefits of aero and reduce tyre contact patch so as to make driving more difficult for the driver. even with todays grip and aero, there are some drivers who are having trouble controlling their car....ask kimi

BTCC » Hamilton declares debut BTCC weekend 'a milestone'

yes, he may have been helped by lulu, but the simple fact is that a team did consider him able to perform adequately. i am puzzled by the 3 years comment as i thought that he was in clio series either last year or the year before. i think that it is great that a person with a disability is able to participate in motorsport, no matter who his brother might be.

F1 » Ricciardo talks Raikkonen replacement rumours

107SS2009: The Colgate kid is trying to big himself/his position in talking FERRARI interest in him, an interest in him which FERRARI hasn’t shown. This is nothing new when it comes to the possibility of a FERRARI seat, there were dozens before him who done the same thing, anybody remember DC, MW, JB, Lulu?.
Only difference with lulu is that he turned down Ferrari.
He didn't turned-down FERRARI, to turn down an offer there must be an offer first.
sunny.....another well known mushroom !

F1 » Honda, Alonso primed for possible Silverstone penalty

oh my. it is the people watching on tv who find the sport boring. dont forget, the actual participants proposed and agreed the current format. if the actual competitors want to change the rules, then so be it. we true f1 followers will still watch f1 even if we dont like the current rules. many times in the past, the rules have been changed. some didnt like these revised rules either, but we accepted them as being what the participants actually wanted. of course ther will be constant changes, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. but f1 is surprisingly, more relevant to current road car development than it appears. turbos, ers, hybrids, fuel economy, paddleshift, engine mapping etc etc. if you dont like it, then dont watch it. its your choice.
