F1 » Kobayashi escapes punishment for Massa crash

Have to say I honestly didn't even believe him when he said it was his mistake, because from the replay it looked like he started braking at the same point as everyone else, just that his brakes locked up immediately. Shame to see that happen, and shame to see so many people jumping at the chance to bash someone who didn't do anything wrong. Even worse to see some are still blaming him even after it's known that it was a technical issue...

F1 » Kobayashi escapes punishment for Massa crash

The car looks like it has been drawn by a 5 year old with crayons. KK has said a F3 car is quicker. I have to question why a car would have its brakes controlled by software. They have dual circuits for front and rear that are hydraulic as can be seen in the recent pictures of Ferrari's with the nose cones off. I cannot see that they (Caterham)are remotely competitive and have been banging around at the back end for a number of years. Why not just call it quits and let the people who are serious race cars in F1. This is not good for the image of F1
He said a GP2 car would be better, not an F3. That was in the early testing days though, by now the new cars are not far behind the old ones and certainly much faster than GP2. Also, not remotely competitive? Kamui did get into Q2 after all and Ericsson was running just outside the top 10 for a good while until retiring, ahead of Saubers, Force Indias and Lotuses, so not sure what made you draw that conclusion.

F1 » Chilton reports 2014 Marussia ‘a step forward’

He unlapped himself once yes, but he wasn't that far behind to be honest. Anyway the new Marussia may definitely be a step forward, certainly looked like it in testing, but we didn't really get to see that in Australia for a number of reasons. I hope they can have a better weekend in Malaysia and show what they're really capable of, would love to see them join the midfield battle.

F1 » Ecclestone warns quieter F1 could be costly

Is it just me or are people way too sensitive over this whole sound issue? Frankly I couldn't care less as long as the racing is good. And besides, if you know anything at all about TV production or sound recording you'll know that the audio feed from the trackside microphones will be normalised anyway and has nothing to do with the actual volume. Thus, most likely the volume of the cars on the TV feed will be pretty much exactly as high as last year, and the main difference would be that the new cars have a lower frequency. Is that really so much to cry about? Actually, you don't have to look all that long back in history to see engines revving a lot less than those of today... Read that the legendary Cosworth DFV engine had a rev limit of less than 11000 for example, so I guess all F1 cars from the 80s and earlier are to be classified as vacuum cleaners then? Times change, V10s are obsolete, get over it.

F1 » Ericsson: I want to get on with it

He didn't shine as brightly as some of the other young guns, but I was actually quite impressed with him in Australia. He had good race pace and was running ahead of a good number of cars from bigger teams, including the Merc powered Force Indias, all the way up until his retirement. I wasn't sure about him being F1 material to be honest but I would love to be proven wrong. Will be interesting to see what he can do in Malaysia!
