F1 » Hamilton: You rely on the team...


I am curious about one thing....does the driver not feel the grip levels much more instinctively than the pit wall can project, no matter how late into the race? Do they not sometimes ask for driver input when making these decisions? They are supposed to be some of the best drivers in the world and not necessarily there to always follow the pit wall directions like zombies. I'm not talking about strategic team orders, like when the team principal quickly decides with the engineers and they jointly make a decision for the benefit of the team, irrespective of personal feelings or the state of play on the technical side...

F1 » Raikkonen expects fair treatment from Ferrari


Lord! I have missed you guys and I have missed the forum (having been away with a really busy work schedule for some weeks). This is the same Vettel that some were describing to the rest of us as a worse driver than Ricci last year. The same one that has FOUR world titles and who is now wiping the floor with Kimi....in a car that IS built around Kimi. Arrivabene does not appear to be one of those sentimental team principals. The recent Ferrari bloodbath/clearout is still ringing in his ears. As soon as he realises that one driver or the other is more likely to give the Mercs a run for their money as far as the title is concerned, he will back that driver. Vettel knows that and he is clearly staking his claim early. And if Kimi keeps doing his "shoulder-shrug, I don't really care" act, he will find himself as a number 2 so fast, he won't know what hit him!

F1 » 2016 calendar ‘leaked’, confirms FOM


I agree. Besides, F1 personnel are human like the rest of us (stating the obvious) and don't always take their spouses with them on these long trips. So "going home for a few days" is not to be underestimated.....never mind family occasions, siblings or friends' weddings, seeing/playing with their kids, etc. To relegate these experiences to a discussion about costs does them a bit of a disservice, methinks. Typical of Mr F1 to always factor his calculations on saving the almighty dollar! Next recommendation to come: weekly races all season long!

F1 » No human rights concerns as Azerbaijan gets green light


I have this mental image of one of the CVC board members sheepishly asking Bernie at a board meeting: Erm....Bernie, I have a question. Why are you taking F1 to all these countries where there is next to no interest from the people? And Bernie responding by reaching deep into his pot of gold and throwing some large sparkling glittering gold coins on the table. "Is that good enough for you? Does that answer your question??" Yes, it does.....Bernie. Erm...yes, it certainly does *the member replies, slowly withdrawing into his seat*

F1 » Maldonado turns attention to Spain after Sakhir frustration


Manager: Pastor, you need to stop crashing so much. Lotus are complaining on the phone. Pastor: Who is complaining?? Name me some names! I want names! Manager: You know I can't do that. It wouldn't be very professional. Pastor: Whose side are you on??? I want those names! Those......complainers! Manager: It doesn't matter. They have a point though. Pastor: I'm doing my best, man. Can't you see?? Manager: I know, man. I know. But...... Pastor: But what?? You think I like crashing on purpose? I'm doing my best! Manager: Yes, yes, but maybe..... Pastor: No! No! Maybe nothing! I've heard enough. I won't listen to this! I'm just as good as the others. Those....those......primadonnas! Manager: I know, Pastor. I know. But they're not crashing as much as you. Pastor: What are you saying?? Manager: Nothing. Nothing. Just.... Pastor: Go away and leave me alone! Manager: Ok...ok! Pastor: AAAAAAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!! (sound of glass smashing in the background) Manager: Oh dear.

F1 » Maldonado turns attention to Spain after Sakhir frustration


It could be a subconscious thing where he's trying to "prove" to everyone that he is not just a pay driver, and as a result trying too hard, charging headlong into every corner, fighting pointless battles and "racing" other cars that he's not really racing in a race. This is where a good manager or support team is needed. Just a calming hand on the shoulder..."let the race come to you, Pastor. Keep up the speed, do all the basics right and pick the right fights on the track. The results will come....slowly but surely". It's not really rocket science (the advice, not the sport). But just like someone else said......you can't buy racecraft with oil money :-)

F1 » Arrivabene teasing contract to spur Raikkonen on


I think Arriva is the type of team boss that just needs to "know" that Kimi is giving nothing less than "his very best" in every race. Kimi's body language might give a public impression that he really doesn't care one way or the other that he had not been on the podium since 2013, but Arriva is not the kind of boss who will wait around for too long to find out. The Ferrari bloodbath is proof of that approach. Even his own position is not safe, if he does not deliver as a team boss. No one in the team can get too comfortable... Sounds like something out of an Italian movie, but it's true.
