F1 » Raikkonen unhappy with Ferrari strategy


It's interesting how this will all play out. It's turning into a bit of a drama now between Kimi and Ferrari. Even in his 1st Ferrari stint I remember in '08 the season started off great for Kimi and he looked like running away with another championship after winning it in '07 after the first few races...but then inexplicably Ferrari developed the car to help Massa and Kimi at the time was saying it wasn't the right direction for him but they went ahead anyway. Ferrari is just messing with the guy for refusing to speak Italian I think. Silly Italians :D

F1 » Michael Schumacher medical files ‘stolen’


I wonder if some media outlet somewhere dares to touch these papers. I bet some obscure site looking for a bunch of quick internet hits is willing to take the risk and then it'll spread like wildfire. Just a matter of can the douchelord who stole this stuff find a douchelord to buy this quick enough before he gets caught. A sad state of affairs once again, but hey I guess not much has changed over the last 30 odd years. IIRC there were some 'journalists' posing as doctors to get access to Ronnie Peterson in hospital after he had his accident as well. Another sad reminder of what some people are capable off. I guess this is how day by day we get older, wiser and sadder...

F1 » Penalty tempers Perez delight


He seems to be on a roll now...at least in terms of pace these last few races Hulkenberg has been a bit outshone by Perez which is no small feat. After seeing some of his races in GP2 I always knew there is blinding pace in there somewhere but even there some races were awesome and others not so much. He just needs to make sure to do this consistently and bring home the points cause at the moment mr consistent Hulk himself is still a long way ahead on points. They always say you can learn consistency but you can't learn speed and generally I think that's true but there are some exceptions who have the pace sometimes but just can't seem to learn consistency. Another example is Vergne IMO although I thought he had a pretty good year till now but this weekend was rubbish again from him (unless the chassis wasn't right cause he was way slower than Kvyat all weekend).

F1 » Horner slams Renault failings


These comments aren't as much directed towards Renault as to the FIA. This is the inevitable result of the engine freeze regulations which can't be sustained if any of the manufacturers has a noticeable advantage over the others. You can't expect the other teams to try and overcome a simple power deficit for years to come. So now the lobbying is taken up a notch. FA's comment that 'Mercedes advantage can't be overcome' and all the talk about Ferrari leaving F1 for Le Mans or a new 'GP1' series is for the same reason. These are veiled threats to the FIA that ultimately come down to: 'guys if we don't get the chance to have the same power as the other guys engine freeze be damned, we're out of here and you can't afford to lose us so give us what we want.' In this case the strong arm tactics are justifiable, cause it's a stupid rule that goes agianst of what F1 is about.

F1 » Raikkonen unhappy with Ferrari strategy


ZEDX: Reminds me a bit of the year they put Fisi into the car mid-term and although Kimi got the points finishes, Fisi always ended up four/five places behind. When the going gets tough Ferrari seem to get behind their favoured driver in deference to the other. I reckon Kimi may jack-it-in come the mid-season break. Can't see him seeing-out his 2015 contract if this keeps up.
Yeah the interesting thing about that as well is that up until his accident Felipe Massa was having a better year than Kimi again that year but then after Kimi became the de facto 1st driver he actually managed to win the Belgian GP in that dog of a car. Similar thing when Schuey injured his leg and Irvine started winning races all of a sudden... It's the Ferrari way I guess...but even then I do now think FA is also just a bit better.

F1 » Chilton ‘genuinely upset’ by end of run


I wonder if Jules and Maxie had a chat like Hamilton and Rosberg and whether they are friends again now :D Seriously though, apart from being just generally to slow for F1 Chilton showed himself to be a bit of a **** again after blaming the collision on Bianchi in Canada. At this age he should have learned to take responsibility for your mistakes instead of always blaming them on 'the other guy'. Problem is he probably got away with doing just that too many times in the past to stop now. Ah well, it'll probably be the end of the line after this year for Max in F1, cause let's face it, another team isn't going to take him for his speed and I'm guessing the father has enough sense to realise that and stop paying for 'the F1 driver experience' as someone described it here some time ago.

F1 » Sutil, Sauber out to build on Canadian performance


I don't rate Guttierez very highly, in fact I think he was the 2nd worst driver on the grid last year after Chilton and only a slight uptick in form plus a bag of cash from Mexico saved his seat but that being said I still agree that's not the worst of their problems this year. Clearly the money situation hasn't allowed them to build a decent car this year and the question has to be asked how long can they keep on going running on fumes. The notion that they went better in Canada is BS, Sutil narrowly escaped being outqualified by both Marussias and in the race after the usual suspects from Marrussia, Caterham and this year Lotus retired they were in a league of their own...in a league of their own way behind all the runners who actually did have a semblance of a chance for points that is. I do hope they can score a few points and get 9th, but with all their sponsors seemingly coming from the race and test drivers right now the future looks bleak.

F1 » Massa insists win was possible


Taipan:
JJJ: ...
Triple J (.....).
Massa said that because it was his call to come in, the team actually said over the radio 'we're trying to finish the race on these tyres'...however they never made the whole situation clear to Massa or simply said 'Rosberg and Perez are holding up the field behind you, manage these tyres to the end and you'll win this race'. The team at that point were aware of the unusual circumstances with the Mercs, they saw FI made the one stop work tyre wise (yes that car is a little better on tyres but still) and they knew that if they did stop Massa it would have him end up right behind his teammate in traffic. They simply gave away track position there while as it turned out a 'stay out, stay out' would almost definitely have won them the race with Rosberg and Perez holding up the bulls. I feel that's a chance they should have taken but even worse is pitting and then not tell Bottas to move over.
