F1 » Hamilton cost Rosberg win chance – Wolff


I think the main problem is within the Team management. Just who is in charge? We now have numerous "Team Principles" who appear to be acting individually, rather than as a team. This is now apparent to the World Press and can only damage the reputation of Mercedes, whatever the outcome of the Drivers Championship. On top of that with all the technical problems, suffered in the main by one driver, you will then have all the "conspiracy theorists" lining up within the Press to manufacture stories to suit their own agenda. Mercedes is a huge Corporation and a respected Manufacturer, surely they can sort this situation out in a fair and even way, otherwise the results at the end of the year will appear to be tainted or biased. Daniel Ricciardo and Fernando Alonso were the only ones who came out smiling last weekend, whereas Mercedes, despite the efforts of both drivers on track appear to be "losing the plot" despite their technical advantage -"Too many chiefs, too many Politics!!

F1 » McLaren ‘threw it all away’ – Button


McLaren is one of the most successful F1 teams of all time, however, as has been proved time and time again in recent years, they seem to lack an ability to adapt to changing conditions in a way that the other teams do. Whether this is down to a rigid mindset that is hampering their drivers or whether there are other reasons or team politics and personalities involved is surely something they need to address, before they can consistently stay at the top again. No doubt the switch to Honda will bring advantages, but right now they are a long way behind where they should be, particularly with a Mercedes power unit and their resources available. Hopefully, their long term plan with whatever drivers they choose, will reap the benefits, but there are inherent problems within the structure of the team that needs sorting!!

F1 » Hamilton ‘very shocked’ by team order


107. Much as I agree with some of your comments or opinions, this time you are out of order.! This is not about "Fanboys" or "Keyboard Warriors", it,s about ability and perception. Whether or not you dislike Hamilton, and whether or not he is liked or disliked by whoever up and down the Pitlane, he put on a performance today that a lot of other F1 drivers would struggle to match.!! Furthermore, having followed and been involved with this sport for over 50years of my life , I could draw comparisons between Hamilton, Senna, Schumacher,Hunt, Lauda and many other drivers, particularly with regard to the "will to win" and also the ruthlessness required. He may have alienated or upset certain members of Mercedes F1 today , but he did what he had to do! All thats left to settle is the Drivers Championship between Hamilton and Rosberg and I have no particular favourite on that one, it's just a shame that Ricciardo is too far behind to shake things up at the top!

F1 » Lauda: Hamilton was right to defy team


Niki is absolutely right. Calls were made in the heat of the moment and they proved to be wrong, and as a result the drivers had to make their own decisions. Red Bull and Ricciardo played a blinder and turned a Turkey in to a Racehorse today. As for some of the personality attacks on this thread, thats best left behind in the school playground where it belongs!!

F1 » Ricciardo: I thought my race would end early!


Whatever the Politics and the Personalities involved, it,s a great shame that Renault didn,t get their act together before the "spec-freeze". That would have enabled Ricciardo and Vettel to have a fighting chance in this years WDC. As it is now, they are both having to find advantages elsewhere. Also Ferrari, for much the same reasons, got it wrong and have hampered Fernando Alonso. With regards to ability and commitment, the Jury is out on Vettel and Raikkonen! time will tell.

F1 » Button: Old Hockenheim was ‘mighty’


The old Spa was also a mighty circuit, as was the old Nurburgring, the old Monza, Zandvoort, and many others including Silverstone,s original Woodcock and Stowe corners, however safety and sanitisation particularly have now left us with what we have, unfortunately. I was lucky enough, and old enough to visit some of the old circuits in their heyday and some of the lesser known one's such as Chimay, Vila Real, Solitude, Clermont-Ferrand, etc etc - but time and safety have moved them off the radar!
