F1 » Alonso anticipates Hungary ‘opportunity’


Those at mclaren/Honda are looking forward to Hungary for the following reasons, Honda says they will be using their FULL ERS power for the first time since the start of the season, the track is the second slowest on the calendar, with sharp corners and short straights, were full throttle use is 56% of the lap, the braking system (friction material) temperatures and wear control are key to the race.

F1 » GPDA: We must never relent on improving safety


Ramjam69, The most unfortunate consequence of the accident was that Riccardo Patrese was blamed for the accident by his fellow drivers and was banned from the USGP, subsequent investigations cleared Patrese, and thankfully this form of “instant justice” has never been repeated in formula one. Further, open wheel Lotuses designed by Colin Chapman were notoriously flimsy and lacking in features for protecting a driver, a driver driving a Lotus at the time was at a greater risk of injury in an accident that a driver driving other cars of the time.

F1 » GPDA: We must never relent on improving safety


john.nichols.1481: "The reason ironically that these cranes and tractors were introduced was down to safety to get stranded vehicles out of the way without either the marshals hurting themselves and to help the race continue without the interruption of yellow flags or safety cars stopping the action. What nobody seems to realise is that hitting another car can be a softer impact than hitting or going under the tyre barrier.
" Just balderdash because the need for saying something was so strong.

F1 » F1 2015 driver salaries published – but who earns most?


Lewis4Jen: It is teams who decide how much they are going to pay their drivers and providing that team can more than afford to pay a driver what they believe that driver is worth then I cant see a problem as all the teams who are paying high wages are not asking for subsidies from government etc. Also the guy in-charge of Merceds f1 has said that one of his driver's popularity is good for the Mercedes brand so I can understand why that driver's wages will blow the rest away next year when his new contracts kick's in.
The driver you are parroting on here what another site “added” to the money report will be the third best payed driver on the grid next year. The money report was about guaranteed salary, bonuses are birds in the air till he gets them in his hands.

Are people disagreeing with you because what you said is wrong or because they believe Honda's talking a load of old cobblers?
Sokudo, If you cant decide for yourself try asking them.

mytyresaregoingoff: Have to agree with 107s on this one. Manor have had two fatalities where the electronic systems contributed to the incident. Perhaps besides a standard ECU there should be a standard control programme with team adjustable variables. This would mean that safety systems could not be overridden and the actual performance of a manufacturer engine to a customer engine would be the same.
Over riding "inhibit" a safety system is a very serious crime that shouldn't be let to pass for free.
