F1 » Hunter-Reay: IndyCar drivers can succeed in F1 again


mrfill: Mr Hunter-Gatherer, It is indeed no good calling a team USF1, basing it in Charlotte and failing to produce a car for racing, like they did in 2010. I'm surprised at the lack of basic historical knowledge unless its just selective amnesia. In the same way as there was no mention of Scott Speed or Michael Andretti, who along with Rossi are the only US drivers in the past 25 years. Nostalgia's not what it used to be....
basic knowledge would tell you peter windsor is NOT an American.

F1 » Newey: Proposed 2017 changes don’t go far enough


107SS2009: The arrogance topped with a sense of entitlement and certified with a pedigree of hypocrisy of Newey and the other red bullies top brass knows no bounds. Newey and the other red bullies top brass worked hard for and were happy to have exclusive and preferred works partnership with engine suppliers Renault when Renault were supplying three other teams, they wasn’t back than screaming and shedding crocodile tears for the FIA to force engine manufacturers to supply the exact specification engine to other customer teams.
Couldn't have said it better myself.

F1 » Wolff: Mercedes could loosen reins to enliven F1


Ferrari found a loophole for PU homologation or there would only be one PU spec allowed for ALL racing any engine. That should be reversed/changed so everyone gets the best version. As to the rules not allowing others to catch up. I find that is not correct. The rules for changing things based on reliability alone were so abused they finally had to request someone use a token. This year they were further relaxed you can almost actually produce an entire new PU. The problem with catching up is the parts and technology take months to produce not weeks. Lastly.. no one wants to work with a partner like Red Bull.

F1 » Worst of 2015: F1's struggle for power


goldenoldie:
107SS2009: The mandate given to Totd and Ecclestone by the WMSC not only Contrivance agreements between FIA and manufacturers but also the individual concord agreements signed between teams and FOM, and that is apart from the mandate given to Ecclestone being in total breach of the EU article 82 re the involvement of the commercial rights holders supposedly cannot have anything to do with the rules and regulations.
Sunny, therefore Ferrari is in the clear, because their objective is to race cars and they only introduced road going cars in order to finance their racing activities. As for Mercedes, that is a totally different story, because with them it is the other way round! Isn't it? :)
Your talking about Ferrari under Enzo. The business model for Ferrari is the same as Merc currently.
