F1 » Hamilton ‘not comfortable’ despite fastest time


Ronnie Peterson was both a great driver and a nice easygoing person. I had the pleasure of meeting him a number of times and away from the circuit he was a quiet ordinary guy. He used to drive his roadgoing CSL wearing clogs, which didn't seem to slow him down. The famous unofficial road race he had against his friend Dave Brodie and an un-named other F1 driver after the British Grand Prix in the 70's is still talked about but that was all in another era. You can't compare it with the modern times, it all happened before the age of corporate bulls##t that we live in now!!!

BTCC » Plato calls for major rule rethink


So let's get this straight. Front and rear wheel drive cars have been running in the BTCC for as long as I can remember(1963) and before that. We now have a scenario where 1 of the rear wheel drive cars is consistently winning and a couple of the others have had sporadic wins despite the fact that they have been regulated against (gearing and boost levels). It appears that Mr Plato, who has a habit of driving in to other cars, winding other drivers up, and continually whingeing about the regs on camera, is not happy about it! -- mmmmmmm - nice bit of Marketing - your sponsors must be proud of you Mr Plato! - You have a budget that most other teams can only dream about and now naughty Mr **** Bennetts has come along and popped your baloon!! - I can't wait for the next utterance - It will be a cracker!!!

F1 » Brawn: Never say never to F1 return


You have to have a number of factors or building blocks in place in order to have a successful F1 team. You also have to plan for the long term and have cohesion amongst your employees both junior and senior. What you do not need are control freaks or ego maniacs or executives from parent Manufacturers interfering I can imagine that Ross would only be happy working in an enviroment that is calm and well structured and doesn't panic with the peaks and trough's of F1. His stewardship helped make Mercedes F1 what it is today as part of a long term plan. As soon as he could see what was coming over the hill he did the sensible thing and baled out. - Does he need all this sh#t again.? Look at Ferrari, Mercedes or McLaren or any of the teams further down (apart from Red Bull or Williams) and ask yourself the question!!!
