F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Is it safe ever?’

But as it is today, it seems like yellow means "make sure you don't go faster than your last laptime", waved yellow means roughly the same and double waved means "slow down a little bit". I've noticed this on many occasions, but usually the consequences haven't been anywhere near those in Suzuka. Now, it will always be hard to police, and being a competitive sport it's obvious you don't want to lose time related to the drivers you're racing, but it's equally obvious yellows don't have the intended effect anymore. Something that will come up in future driver meetings I'm sure. Way I see it, they probably could come up with some new regs to fix this but I kinda hope they don't TBH. You can't expect the FIA and the stewards to fix everything, the drivers have to take responsibility for gradually letting their caution slip more and more when yellows are waved, and I would like to see that being addressed rather than a blame game on the organisers, the FIA and the stewards.

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Is it safe ever?’

Yeah if anything what this should lead to is being stricter on the drivers about slowing down for yellows, waved yellows and double waved yellows. I think it WAS a freak accident indeed, but also an avoidable one. And it wouldn't be good or practical to have the safety car out for every incident, but then the caution system would need to work better. And I can totally understand that they didn't deploy the SC for this crash as removing Sutil's car was a pretty straightforward job, the crane was nearby and it wasn't an overly dangerous location, quite far from the track - double waved yellow SHOULD have been enough.

F1 » Rosberg admits Hamilton deserved win

Taipan: Lulu deserved to beat Nico today, Nico has to dig deeper if he wants this championship. He had the measure of Lulu during qualifying and for the first half of the race then seemed to give up the fight after Lulu passed him, maybe he had a problem I don't know. I found the BBC commentary amusing (as usual) greatest pass in history apparently, one of the bravest most memorable moves ever and it was "round the outside" Funny I seen it as a DRS pass on a straight and it was complete before the corner, can you go round the outside on a straight?
I think the difference was in the setup. Nico's setup worked better in quali but worse with the wets. And yeah, the pass... Good one, definitely, but I was more impressed with Ricciardo to be honest.

F1 » Hamilton 'determined' to join Suzuka elite

So anyone who's had 4 DNFs or more in one season has been sabotaged from inside his own garage? That must mean we have tons of saboteurs in F1! But hey, at least it's getting better, right? Back in the old days I think pretty much the whole field had more than 4 DNFs to their name. I always thought this was due to the technology improving but I guess I was wrong. Also: the saboteur's name is known? Really? Care to enlighten the rest of us? TLDR: Your post is nuts. EDIT by CRASH.NET! Please do not respond to this serious allegation.
