F1 » Force India proud of Hulkenberg's Le Mans win

richard: i am delighted for hulk. but it is funny....from most reports it would appear that he alone won the race. two lesser known drivers...tandy and bamber... also contributed to the win.
Richard, Fully agree, same thoughts here, that's exactly what I mean advising others to sieve carefully what they are force fed by some of the press/media. Some people that pretends/believe to be following F1 all they can talk about is what the media feeds their minds, like parrots, like most women talk about fashion, at present the trend is all doom and gloom in F1 all they can talk about, nobody on here noticed or talked about the facts that Force India the team that most probably didn’t afford the new PU106B upgraded PU was actually the second best improver out of the 4 that improved their qualifying time in Canada, WO6 having improved by 0.5 of a second, SF15T by 0.8, Williams by 0.4 and FI by 0.7 of a second.

F1 » Force India proud of Hulkenberg's Le Mans win

ZEDX: Getting back on-subject.... ahem.... I think the timing of this win (or properly, being one of a winning trio of drivers), is excellent for Nico. There were a few posts lately suggesting maybe his "day" had come and gone, and he was doomed to obscurity..blah, blah (Yes, I was one of them!). However, the racing Gods have smiled kindly on him as the opportunity to do Le Mans came up & he did very well. .. not many drivers would get this chance. Could be good for the teams & (more-so) public interest if more drivers could swap between series ... I think it could help open-up motor racing and soften the "steel walls" that seperate F1/WEC/DTM/Indy series
Agree with what you said (your feelings) but some F1 contracts can never allow their driver to drive for a commercial competitor and I don't think any sane F1 fan can blame them.

Taz: "Some people that pretends/believe to be following F1 all they can talk about is what the media feeds their minds, like parrots, like most "Lucky your here to keep us all right sunny! :) I think most people will take what's written with a pinch of salt at times like 99% of Merc press releases, anything Eric Boullier says, pretty much all things Christian Horner says etc etc). I was under the impression this was a general F1 discussion forum and not a technical forum...
So you mean that all this latest gloom and doom being parroted on here is with a pinch of salt.

F1 » McLaren needs an ‘extreme approach’ to win again

SoSlo: there is no such thing as a "radical approach" in F1. any real innovation is forbidden by the rules and everybody is building pretty much the same car according to very exact specifications. it's not radical, nor is it innovative if it's F1 (KERS was used on huge dump trucks starting decades ago)
If the new power unit formula introduced in 2014 was not a radical change compered to the one before it, I don't know what is.
Radical maybe (if your selling fancy top line sports cars) but certainly not a change for the better considering the dire boredom inducing racing we've been served up this year.
what is radical about it? it's essentially the same technology in a prius right?
You are totally lost/you don't know what you are talking about.

F1 » Perez looks to make up for missed opportunities

Unlike all the other Mercedes powered drivers Sergio Perez was the only one not to have used the second PU106B in Canada while his team mate was the first to have done so in Bahrain, it is assumed that Mercedes, Williams and Lotus will use PU106B number one in Austria FP1 and FP2 and change too PU106B number two for FP3, qualifying and race, while both VJM08 will be using PU106B number two plus Mercedes gearbox for the whole weekend, as explained earlier, the Hulk has been on his second PU106B and Mercedes gearbox since Bahrain. Both Williams and Lotus manufactures their own gearbox. It should also be noted that the VJM08 was the second best out of the four that improved their qualifying time in Canada on that of 2014, WO6 improved by 0.4 of a second, SF15T by 0.8, Williams by 0.4 and VJM08 by 0.7 of a second.
