F1 » Hulkenberg blames ‘timing’ for missing top drive


Well Nico has good company in Alonso since 2007! And once the "strategy group" does away with the independent teams it will become worst. Drivers are going to get to the point where F1 is no longer an option to further their careers. The scenario now is that a rookie driver has two seasons to make it in F1 and that means competing for the championship during that time and beating your teammate and drivers in better cars than you have. If he doesn't show these results he is gone and another hopeful youngster take the shot. The old guard (which includes Hulkenberg) survive because of seat-time in F1. With the insane limits on testing there are few who have the talent to drive F1 seriously and these older drivers are the bones the new boys sharpen their teeth on.

F1 » Drivers cautiously in favour of refuelling return?


What’s unpredictable about cars passing because of pitstops? During the last era of refueling the races were processions and very often the only passing was done at pit stops. It’s much more of a challenge for a driver to have to react to the changing fuel load and it’s effects on the car over a full race distance than to go back to the sprint -stop -sprint -stop of the Schumacker era. The reason older drivers cotton to the idea is they think it will advantage them over younger drivers who have not experienced that style of racing. It’s also ironic to create a formula with power units 50% more efficient on fuel are required to take on fuel during a race. That is just a super lazy and jaded way to manipulate the series.
