F1 » Perez ‘surprised’ by Force India pace


Bluetusk: I do say, the action between Bottas and Perez should more than atone for my jadedness towards the sport. Who else is surprised by Perez's gap to his stablemate?
Yes I am, a bit. From the year I watched Perez do GP2, I know he can be really fast, but I started to doubt him a little bit after he paled in comparison to Hulkenberg the first two races...so to see the situation completely reversed (for now) is kind of surprising. It was interesting to see a couple of drivers outqualify their teammates this time around after being beaten the first two rounds, as Raikkonen, Bottas, Button and Kvyat managed the same feat.

F1 » Bahrain Grand Prix – FP1 results


Wrong. BOOM! vdG was faster than Maxie Also, haters gonna hate. It is a bit of a travesty though that Chilton has a race seat in a car that allows him to be quicker than a succesive Formula BMW Europe, Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup and (1st year) WSBR champion in the Caterham, but that's modern day F1 for you. This while a guy who needed a 2nd year in WSBR to win it (after getting beaten first time around along with Bird and Bianchi amongst others) is doing quite well in the McLaren.

F1 » Hamilton heads disjointed FP1


kimired: cont- for Homologation regards the engine and powertan which cant be changed in other words the rest of the teams cant react to the Mercs advantage, not unless Newey an come up with some Aero design that can challenge the Mercs advantage mechanics wise. As I see it the 2014 season is Lewis v Nico.
Enjoyed reading the technical comment. This 2nd point is the issue though, not only for 2014 but also the rest of the engine freeze period. F1 being F1 I predict that the rules will be broken once again in order to let the other manufacturers compete. EDIT: as Mercedes won't be to happy about this I kinda speculate that a compromise will be reached behind the scenes where Mercedes basically gets to win a championship this year (fair play to them for building the best engine after all) and subsequently the others demand an engine upgrade for the years to come and overtly or covertly threaten to leave F1 otherwise.

F1 » Hamilton certain of no Rosberg issues


Meh...22 wins...6 wins...who's counting. The point is both Keke and Damon weren't necessarily the best or fastest drivers of their day but did manage to win a championship. So fine, Damon won a bunch more races in the unbeatable Williams...but many would argue if he was really that good he should have won at least another championship in 94 and or 95. The two also have in common that they got a break to drive for a decent team at a later age than most. In a way I have a lot of respect for these guys as they got maximum results with the talent they had. Otoh, there were probably a few drivers around who deserved the good car more based on talent... Ah well...If Damon doesn't work (for ya Brits) let's compromise and say Keke was Villeneuve (jacques that is, although coincidentally I think Gilles won 6 races as well like Keke, but I think he's a good example of someone who had more talent but didn't get the results partly because of the tragic accident but also for other reasons).

F1 » Hamilton certain of no Rosberg issues


Fosco333:
JJJ: ...
Senna was 1 sec quicker than Keke in his first F1 test with the same car. A
Well...yeah, exactly. But then he also held the record for quickest qualifying lap ever until JPM broke it. He was the eh...Nico Rosberg of his day :). Or maybe the Webber, except with a championship. Ok...Damon Hill, yep that's it.

F1 » Hamilton certain of no Rosberg issues


I feel like Hamilton has a bit of pace in hand on Rosberg most of the times...but he's also Hamilton which means there will be races (especially if he's not clear in front) he won't be finishing. I hate to play into the hands of the bashers by saying that but over the years it's been proven to be true so far, he's very quick but not consistent enough. I think Rosberg understands pretty well that he has a good shot at this title if he continues just finishing races, racking up podiums and points finishes and perhaps the odd win here and there while just accepting that pacewise, in quali and a bunch of races, Hamilton is going to check out and be out of his reach. His father also won the title on the count of being there at the end in most races in 82...he was also a quick guy but not necessarily THE quickest. A smart driver if you will, like Lauda 84 outcalculating the professor.

F1 » Kobayashi keen to see new Caterham parts


The races I usually look forward to the most that are on this years calender are Australia, Monaco, Canada, Austria, GB, Belgium, Italy, Japan, US and Brazil. So mostly a bunch of street races and the old school tracks with nice fast flowing sections. The rest I'm kinda watching just because it's F1...Particularly the races in Bahrain, Spain and Abu Dhabi, almost nothing ever happens. Hungary used to be in that last group as well but I feel like that's one of the tracks where the DRS actually made a big difference as you can now pass into turn 1 or put pressure on the guy in front and either overtake on the inside of 2 or run on the outside and have the inside line into 3. US is the best Tilke track, but I think the design of the circuit isn't even done by Tilke.
