F1 » Chandhok: I didn’t expect it to be THAT tough!


F1 fan. He is not neccesarally a million times better than all of us on this forum what he has is a few million pound more than us (or daddy does) which means he can buy his way into better drives. He will then be better than the rest of us. Talent alone won't get you anywhere. But good luck to him if he gets a chance. Even if we were only as good as he would any of us turn down the chance to be where he is,of course not and his money has given the team to (even if it is to limp there) get on the grid, without it there wouldn't be a team to employ anyone no matter how good they are. And I would say Senna has much more to prove.

F1 » FIA opens invites for 2011 F1 season


@DJNR I am not a naysayer or any such thing but to sum up a lot of other posts (and comments from B.E./ FIA) The rules stated that new teams must use cosworth. The new teams had been chosen on certain, if somewhat dubious as it turned out, promises and business plans. Stefan said it had funds to compete when they did not. Stefan Have tried to 'bully' their way onto the grid ahead of teams who went through the due process of registering their intent of getting an entry. Not to mention the legal issues. I could go on but you do the research. I am not a naysayer if a team went about getting an entry by due process then fair play, stefan didn't so don't deserve one

Seriously though telling a team in JULY that it can race in 2011 is too late surley they should tell them in july/ aug they have an entry for 2012 and allow them time to build and test. Then the testing rules should allow testing as this year plus maybe 6 sessions of two days after certain gp's, with these teams included. At least they will have time to prove they can (A) make it to testing and (B) produce a car that will at least appear capable of making Quali 2. No testing should = No racing

DJNR It is much more complicated than just allowing stefan to turn up and race and has been discussed many times on this and other forums MUCH BETTER OPTION! As we are all experts in F1 lets get crashnet to stump up 1000 euro's and have a race team. We can buy some crayons off usf1 and each get the local primary school to draw the design, choose the one with the nicest colours, then go round to fellinair's state of the art shed and build it one weekend. Then we can show it to some unknown 'superstar' who no ones ever heard of but will give us $8,000,000 and we can go down the pub Then because we didn't give up our day job go to work on monday morning and brag how great we were going to be

F1 » 'Proud' Schumi never expected to 'drive circles' round rivals


As I have said before when he has had time to set the car up to his style the lap times will come. However I noticed he didn't get to have sleep before the race, well he shouldn't worry as most of us had a sleep for him during the race. And I'm pretty sure had he been been behind Vettel like rosberg was he would have been past.

F1 » FIA set to chase diffuser changes


Didn't I read a few days ago the gnome like one asking us to "keep the faith" so this is the FIAs reaction to that is it, change the rules, (which I also read from the same person could not be changed mid season). They must have agreed these things at the start of the season. This seems once again panic from from the headless chickens. And how much is this going to cost these teams? How will budget capping work with all these changes enforced on teams. A rule is a rule a hard statement work within it, break it and be penalised.Spirit of a rule baloney

F1 » Button: We could have done things differently


@Margolis. ?????? 1 Fernando made a mistake in quali not so great then. 2 he made a place up at the sart yes he was on the left side so he put his car in the way of massa his team mate and took advantage of the very short space betwwen turn 1 & 2 good move but not great as he knew massa would give him space being his teammate. 3 FA would not have got past SV as he had to keep out of his dirty air because his 'superior' ferrari would have broken down due to overheating problems a fault built into the car by ferrari. 4 Newy's machine did not break down because of newey but an outsourced part nothing to do with the car design which outpaced ferrari all race. cont
