F1 » Raikkonen ‘more confident’ after Ferrari improvements


I'll be interested to see what happens now he starts in front of Fernando...If both have troublefree races I wonder if FA can get any closer to Kimi on racepace like he did every time with Massa or if Kimi can in fact give him a run for his money. I believe Kimi might have an extra set of new tyres though (or did he use more earlier on in quali?), so maybe he can do something with that as well and nab Bottas and Perez for a podium, that'd be nice.

F1 » Wolff: Rule change requests ‘absurd’


It was always going to happen this way. I think they're going to allow Mercedes to win the championship this year as a fair reward for building the best PU, but for the next years, the 'freeze' will definitely be allowed to thaw. In a sport like F1 where millions are spent to design some winglets to gain half a tenth in laptime you just can't say 'oh but if you fail to design the best engine you'll have a .5-1s a lap disadvantage for the next five years to come, good luck trying to overcome it with aero'. It's nonsense to say that if Ferrari would have built the best unit then Mercedes wouldn't do exactly the same. And RBR have proven that they will do everything politics wise to get a competitive edge (including not allowing to let Sauber trade testing days for more windtunnel time for instance...cause who knows they might suddenly pose a threat). The artificial freeze leaves just one workable solution: PU equality provided by the FIA.

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.
