F1 » Hamilton wants 'to put on a show' in Austria


When one of the main protagonists in a series considered boring by many fans is the one making an announcement that he plans to put on a show by doing even more of the same thing.......... hmmm I'm not sure who advises Lewis, but they need to get him thinking a bit more before he makes these pronouncements and drawing unnecessary flak for it.... Having said that, it is his time to shine right now, courtesy of the car. It was Seb's a few years ago and he made the most of it. So you really can't blame Lewis....

F1 » Horner dismisses Aston Martin-Mercedes rumours


They did say this Russian was fast. And he would give the grin some problems. He was maybe trying too hard to impress at the start of the season and over-driving, so someone must have had a word. Relax, let the races come to you. Let the car do its thing. Throw it in the corner and watch it respond. He's taking the advice and he is relentless with it. Red Bull do not promote slouches to their A-team. This kid is proving that point.

F1 » Massa dismisses Bottas team order qualms


I hear you, Webbertron. I actually logged on again and posted the above before I'd seen your post. The Mercs are hard to shake off. Maybe that's why Brundle wanted Williams to adopt the bolder strategy that might have given them a chance? It was either that or Smedley taking the sentimental option of not asking Felipe to step aside. By the way, who is the other senior engineer on the pitwall alongside Smedley? Not Claire Williams obviously, but I'm talking about the other "Adrian Newey" or "Christian Horner" type figure who can quickly "mini-conference" and make instant strategic team-wide decisions together with Smedley in real time?

F1 » Massa dismisses Bottas team order qualms


To be or not to be? That is the question.... If a sport becomes as money-driven as F1 has become, I guess you cannot blame Williams for seeing a rare potential 1-2 on Sunday - and wanting Bottas to hold station and serve as a buffer to protect Felipe from Lewis and Nico... On the other hand, as Martin Brundle said in the commentary, that strategy appeared timid in the end, by Williams not "driving through" (pun intended) their track position and advantage by letting Bottas through immediately and going on to potentially win the race. Until they develop that ruthless streak and make those strategic decisions in the moment, they will remain in the shadows of the mighty Merc works team. As for Bottas, do we want him to be a nice team-player as many are saying, and lose races? Or do we want him to do a Vettel Multi 21 and go on to show ruthless world championship winning traits? If It Is To Be, It Is Up To Me! Let's have a mini debate....

F1 » Massa dismisses Bottas team order qualms


I don't know whether it is always easy for a driver to think in the same calm logical fashion that us fans are able to do while sitting in our chairs at home (when he is doing 200mph and trying to drive the car like he stole it). I know I've also argued for the team cause in the past, but it's not always so easy, especially when you're also trying to become the No 1 in the team and also showcase yourself for bigger teams (eg. Ferrari) who are also possibly looking at Hulk as a replacement for Raikonnen next year. He's thinking: my teammate is ahead of me and I want to get past him, while I can, to go on and win the race. When the team says don't do it, his reaction was an understandable one, not "ok guys, no worries, I'll just slow down now to slow Lewis down". We all have the benefit of hindsight at home...not while doing such high speeds...I'm just saying.....

F1 » Raikkonen’s Ferrari future to be decided by Marchionne


What has not helped Kimi's case is the severe thrashing he got from Alonso last year...only to be followed by Seb's arrival and the thrashing he is now getting from Seb. He had his excuses last year..."ooh the car is not to my liking and it was designed for Alonso". This year's car has been designed around him and yet Seb is thrashing him. He is simply running out of excuses, for the amount of money Ferrari are paying him. He survived the recent clearout, but I felt then that he was already on borrowed time and Seb's arrival and consistent performance would test him to the limits. Remember also that he was once replaced by Ferrari in favour of Alonso, and paid handsomely to sit out the year. All of these factors have simply accumulated to the point where the management are not bothered about talking publicly regarding a possible replacement. Today's F1 is too costly and too fast-moving for all those regular excuses to wash anymore, especially with this new, no-nonsense management.

F1 » Renault F1 future to hinge on Mercedes leniency?


Seems to me that a few people are missing the point of this debate. Mercedes and their fans are still arguing like this....."it's not our fault that we got it right and we shouldn't be penalised for it. It's down to the rest to catch up with us". At this point in time, the argument has gone beyond that level! If fans turn away in their millions because of boredom, there will be no more sport to watch! The whole thing should not be reduced to a case of just a few diehards like us following the sport! Even the Mercedes board will cut off its F1 division if that happens! The F1 strategy group is like a giant ship full of people with competing interests, squabbling over who gets what, while all the time not realising or listening to the fans on the shore who are screaming and warning of the onrushing iceberg!!!
