F1 » Button ‘excited’ by manual start procedures


As long as the clutch bite point finder and the bite point update facility is still in use chances of a clutch being burned by the driver is zero. The teams having to disable the clutch bite point finder update before the car leaves the garage on race day up to lights out can only result in bad starts, and not in burned out clutches. The bite point update is the part "facility" that lets the driver input into the start map the results of the coaching he was given/things he had done according to the coaching from his pit wall as near to the actual conditions of the race start as possible. With the present use of the two clutch paddles system, as long as the clutch bite point is electronically known (found) we will not witness a clutch being burned out.

tommytrojan1:
George Zaidan: Are the bookies laying bets on how many drivers will stall, spin, or burn their clutch at the start of Spa?
Remember when a young Schumacher on his first start for Jordan at Spa (after qualifying an amazing 7th) burned his clutch at the start? It didn't matter as he was very quickly snapped up by Benetton right after that, and he sorta made up for his first F1 DNF! Any news on his progress, by the way?
Schumi did not burn his clutch at the start in his first race at SPA, In fact he had a good start overtaking both Alesi and Piquet getting up to fifth in the process, but than going round La Source hairpin the first time, Schumi dipped the clutch to keep the car from understeering, but bringing it up again it disintegrated. that was a different type of clutch, gear change system from that used today.

F1 » Horner: Spa will be challenging for Red Bull


Some teams/drivers can afford to make use/are in a position to use engines that has done their allocated mileage and has been replaced for FP1 and FP2 on race weekends and then change over to their current race engine for FP3, qualifying and race, in that way they keep mileage to a minimum on the race engine. But RBR, Toro Rosso and mchonda are not in a position to do that, so even their testing mileage (FP1 and 2 are limited and or their next engine replacement is vastly accelerated.

F1 » Gastaldi: Classic tracks like Spa the "lifeblood of F1"


MrRandom:
107SS2009: Represents the new high quality formula one followers, total rubbish good for nothing gangsta type of scam adorning these pages, most probably sporting the new must have hair style made by putting the head under a lawn mower.
Come on that's a bit of hyperbole isn't it? I'm pretty sure the "new" followers aren't all gangsters if any and if they are sporting the next must hair style are we really in a position to judge on what they want to do?
Don’t miss it, Go to “British” SKY F1 and click on film to see your idol wiggling his but like a hot Brazilian she-male.

F1 » Horner: Teams dismissed independent advisor idea

107SS2009:
ProfessorX: I some times wonder if someone pushed for Ross being removed from Mercedes.
Profs, Mercedes present three talking heads are in the best position to solve your wondering.
Well I don't care to speculate as to who it might be, out of respect, but I think of the three you point to, there is only one who would really have any interest in that kind of maneuver.
At least two. One who did the moving, and the one who got moved into the position (technical replacement).
But now the profs have another problem, on the one side he wonders while on the other he doesn't care to speculate, some people cant make their minds up.

F1 » Should F1 be celebrating the value of modern celebrity?


here4thesun2: We are in an era where drivers cannot overcome the performance advantage of a rival car/team to win a race, let alone a WDC. The only comparisons to be made for driver vs driver are the teammates battles and I am not convinced they exist. There is always some ingredient that ruins the stew in the teammate vs teammate battle which makes the contest impure. Useless to compare drivers of this era. Fairly easy to compare cars. That is what we have in this modern F1. oneeyedfanboyismand suckers at that.

nobody is perfect sunny. But out of respect, I don't care to speculate publicly. Motive and opportunity. @here4thesun2, I really doubt that, Paddy Lowe doesn't strike me as that kind of person, I think he actually works for a living. Lauda is there for PR reasons, and I don't really have a problem with him at all except that he is pushing the Merc corporate line/customer car thing. I don't think any of those guys are entirely wrong, but I think ethically, there is a real conflict of interest that should not be allowed to persist.
Profs, That nobody is perfect I fully agree, that "ethically" there is a conflict of interest and that it shouldn't be there I also agree.
