F1 » Rosberg v Hamilton: Have your say


The Abu Dhabi "double points" scenario will give Ricciardo some hope - if the Mercs suffer some more alternative DNFs in the next few races. It's a long shot, but you never know! If I were him, I would go flat out in every Q3 session just to sit behind the Mercs - and then try to stick to them like glue during the races. Hope that Adrian Newey keeps delivering powerful updates, drive the wheels off my car.....and then leave the rest to the racing gods :-) Let's see what happens...

F1 » Rosberg v Hamilton: Have your say


Why are most people acting all that surprised about this intense rivalry? Isn't that what they all want to see? No quarter given, none expected? When you put two childhood friends together in a hyper-competitive situation such as this (where they are both eager to establish their personal legacy in the sport), then it is only a matter of time before things spill over and that friendship is affected. As long as neither driver puts the other's life in danger, then it's gloves off. The battle should be fierce but fair. If either driver decides to ignore or disobey the team's orders at any given time, it is up to the management to decide internally what their punishment should be. If the management is weak in the face of ANY insubordination, that is a matter for them as a COMPANY. Apart from all of that, let the battle continue!

F1 » Wolff: ‘No knee-jerk reaction’ at Mercedes


Admit it....in a fun, not quite sadistic kind of way, we are all enjoying watching these men (and women) doing their daily work in the public domain - with all the human emotions that come with it. My boss, colleagues and I sometimes let rip, but then we don't have worldwide TV focussed on us for 2 or 3 days in a row :-) We all exhibit some of these emotions and reactions on certain days in our different jobs. The only difference is these guys are doing theirs mostly under the public gaze. Wolff and Lauda will probably be kicking themselves a bit for reacting to the cameras the way they did on Sunday. The big Mercedes boss man at the top will probably be knocking their heads together right now as we speak. Ross Brawn would have smiled that benign smile that says.....this will all be discussed internally and I am not going to lose control because you have just shoved a mic under my nose :-)

F1 » Wolff: ‘No knee-jerk reaction’ at Mercedes


Just my 2 cents here.... ProfessorX, you don't need to have a go at people for holding their own positions or expressing their views. That's the whole point of the forum, isn't it? Just state your position and make your case with your explanations. It all makes for great debating! And crash does not need to delete this post because I am not trolling or baiting the Professor. Just expressing an honest and open opinion :-)

Here's another hypothetical dimension to this equation: If DannyRic had already won more races or gathered more points at this stage and was only about 10 or 15 points behind the two Mercs, it would have been really interesting to see how the management would have handled the oncoming stage of the inevitable team orders, in order to avoid the title being unexpectedly grabbed by the Aussie. Still.....the WCC is already in the bag, so the Mercs can afford to squabble. How plausible is it now that DannyRic could still grab the WDC?

Continued..... At that moment, does the driver see himself as part of a team (eg Red Bull or Ferrari) driving against another team (eg Mercedes or Williams). Or does he see himself as a driver driving against EVERYBODY ELSE, including his own teammate??? I think I now have my answer to this age-long conundrum....but answers on a postcard all the same....please!!

Continued....... This answer has always stared me in the face, but I have only now really worked it out! If my teammate is my number 1 competitor, then there is NO WAY I would want to support him, no matter whether he is fighting for the WDC with a driver from a DIFFERENT TEAM than my own! I would prefer that other driver to win the WDC. But then my management would hate me, because I didn't provide the much-needed support for "my teammate" at the crucial moment!! So....the question remains.....is F1 an ultra-competitive individualistic sport, or a team sport? If we can find the answers to these questions, then we can work out the sometimes-strange and seemingly inexplicable reactions that drivers have to certain situations such as when the team says..."let him through because he is on a different strategy to you. He is stopping once more and you are not, so there is no need to hold him up...." At that moment, does the driver see himself as part of a team (eg Red Bull or Ferrari) dr

As much as I love it, F1 can be a contradiction in terms! Is Formula 1 an intense, individualistic sport? Or is it a team sport? It's time for it to make up its mind - and for us fans to decide where we stand as far as our "sport" is concerned! We have been having these conversations for years! And it seems to me that we have been having our arguments on the wrong bases all along! We are told that an F1 driver's teammate is the first person he has to beat. He is the one by whom a driver's season performance is measured. So, if that is the case, WHY would a driver ever ever help his teammate.....even when he himself is already out of contention for a WDC?? If this mantra holds true, then a driver who is out of contention should want to see his teammate FAIL, no matter whether he has a chance at the WDC or not!!! He would prefer for a driver from a different team to win the WDC, if he CAN reduce the deficit that exists between him and his teammate - by the end of the season! This ans
