F1 » Sainz 'can be selfish' when needed


Birdysoft: Strange comments from a driver who is most overtaken during this round of F1 championship. Needs to think about what he is talking about i think.
That however is also partly due to his good qualifyings, if you manage to put the car in a place it has no business being in qualifying in front of some less well performing drivers in better cars, chances are they'll still get you in the race cause it's more difficult to keep a better car behind in the race than it is in qualy. Same thing more or less applied for Jarno Trulli and the so-called Trulli-train...for the most part that wasn't the result of Trulli being a bad racer. but moreso a result of him being an epic qualifier (before his time at Caterham that is).

F1 » Dennis rebukes Alonso over ‘unprofessional’ race comments


Obviously biting his tongue almost the entire year up till now and having these comments this race in Japan is no coincidence. Probably he thinks he can shame the Honda top brass into building a better engine. Problem is unless the rules change (which they should, but probably won't until at least 2017) there's almost no way they can make serious inroads and stay whithin the rules. I still suspect Ferrari of going ahead and changing more than they were allowed under the threat of going away if the powers that be didn't let them get away with it. How else are you gonna get the best part of a hundred horsies out of your engine that your engineers already developed to have maximum power in the first place with not just one but almost two hands tied behind your back... Funnily enough, Alonso doesn't really have anywhere to go, McLaren is stuck with Honda not least financially. The only question is whether Honda will lose more face by sticking around getting thrashed or by quitting.

F1 » Grosjean set to lead Haas F1 in 2016


I'm impressed with the way he's beaten Maldonado this year in qualy. People often laugh about Maldo but he wasn't that bad pacewise compared to his previous teammates Barichello, Bruno and Bottas. He had Bruno in the bag and was pretty equal to Barri and Bottas. I think it may be a good move for him, Lotus isn't that good this year despite the Merc engine and if Renault does take over the chassis may be better next year but will the engine be any good? At Haas next year even if the car ends up not being any good he'll probably end up beating Guttierez every race and look like a hero doing that...then for 2017 he'll be a shoe-in to take Kimi's seat. At that time he'll be 30 odd years old and have a bunch of experience...exactly what Ferrari usually looks for in a (2nd) driver.

F1 » Grosjean set to lead Haas F1 in 2016


rdc: From what will probably be a mid-field new works team, to what is probably going to be a backmarker team? Im pretty skeptical that the Haas team will last more then 2-3 years
Considering Gene's net worth is apparently 'only' 250 million that's definitely a possibility...we've seen and still see even billionaires struggle to keep their teams afloat. But as for Grosjean, does he need the team to survive for more than 2-3 years? Not really.

F1 » Singapore Grand Prix - Free practice results (2)

goldenoldie: So when power matters less, you see the real talent showing what they are capable off! (Remember Seb's maiden win in the Monza GP in a Toro Rosso!) And with weather forecasted for tomorrow and after tomorrow, we might get even bigger surprises. That the best might win.
That Toro was a Red Bull. And i also remember a wet last lap in Canada while leading that didn't turn out so well.
No it wasnt. Sebs maiden win was in a Torro Rosso. The only win so far in that car.
He is saying the only differences between the two were stickers.
The two stickers and the engine. Which was the Ferrari unit that had more top end power. On Monza. Wet Monza but still Monza. Bourdais was 3rd on the grid in the sister car. So good point bad example :)

F1 » Grosjean future decided, Haas in the frame?


Taz: If you the choice of Gutierrez or JEV, why choose Gutierrez unless he has a bag of sponsorship money. He was very average in an F1 car.
Obviously chosing Guttierez over pretty much anyone except Max Chilton and Gaston Mazzacane is motivated only by Mexican money and Ferrari ties after what he has shown in his two years at Sauber (which should have been one year to start with).

F1 » Rossi set for F1 debut with Manor in Singapore


@RDix I don't know about Sean Rahal but Sage Karam and Josef Newgarden would be rubbish in F1. We've seen in the past that the level is just higher in F1 than in ChampCar/Indycar/CART, both through champions in those series coming to F1 and failing to impress (for instance Michael Andretti, Da Matta) and by mediocre F1 drivers who lost their (test)seat going to Murica and winning races or even championships there (Sato, Doornbos, Scheckter, Briscoe, Franchitti et cetera). Heck, in Alex Zanardi and Bourdais we even have both things in one driver...Only exceptions are Montoya and Villeneuve but they came from European junior formulae to the US and then went back to F1. A driver that isn't utterly dominating that series can't be expected to be any good in F1. Rossi would own those guys.

F1 » Rossi set for F1 debut with Manor in Singapore


Desperate attempt to make Haas have to come up with a different excuse to put Guttierez in the car? I kind of like the change though, Mehri for whatever reason has mostly come up short versus Stevens this year so let's see what Rossi can do. I think he's a pretty decent driver, not top 5 and most likely not top 10 material in F1 but he's the best 'Murican out there right now and I look at it like this: I'd rather see a fairly decent driver in F1 that hasn't had a chance yet than someone who has already had two full years of getting beaten badly by subsequently Hulk and Sutil. If Guttierez gets that seat it's a lost seat to me. If Rossi gets it who knows what he can do...he's not gonna be much worse (if any) and at least with him there is upside potential. Who knows maybe he gets along well with these F1 cars.
