F1 » F1 'badly-designed' with no 'will to please the public'


And how about this.F1 is suppossed to bring on innovations to road cars so Homoligation of parts like carbon brakes,flappy paddle gearbox, semi auto cluches etc and other driver aids should be fitted to 50% of the mass produced road cars of the manufacturers that have or are owned by these. That would mean fiat for ferrari hyundai for lotus etc all other teams can only fit these devices when all manufacturers teams have homoligation.

F1 » F1 'badly-designed' with no 'will to please the public'


I had a thought on the overtaking issue.Get rid of tilke designed tracks. Even more contraversal though is this. there is an optimum fast (racing line) and off line is slippery. Well in braking/ acceleration zones have one grade of surface and off line make the surface more grippy with grooves in the surface (these will take the marbles to affect more grip) to allow better braking/ acceleration as the guy on racing line will have speed advantage but will comprimised on the other issues. Even if you can't pass on the corner at least the car off line will be able to stay closer then slipstream down the straight.

F1 » Ecclestone, Brundle call for fans to 'keep faith' in F1


Here is another idea the technology is supposed to go into road cars ,well how many road cars need flappy paddles and semi auto clutch to change NON. Bring back proper gear changes (Webber will like that at least) then proper steel brakes (like on proper road cars) And then bring back proper Qauli with all cars on track on all sessions maybe with the perviso that thay must all run in th first 20 mins then the 2nd 20 mins then the last 20 2 mandatory pitstops would be pointless because it will be like Barahian but 2 times, but 5 stops will shake it up and give much more flexibility. Though not sure what it will be like watching the cars coming in so many times.

F1 » Hamilton: 'Aggressive' Massa cost me chance of Bahrain victory


I don't think he was whinging he just told it as saw it crashnet are sensationalizing it. I doubt LH would have made any more of a challenge agaianst FA though, as he couldn't pass NR who in turn couldn't pass a bus or indeed a very sick redbull when 3 others had clearly drifted past. The lap times may have been similar but why would FA want to go faster than neccesary, in fact he could have slowed a bit at the end and so could FM, then all the numpty LH fans who don't seem to have any logic would have said look how much quicker he was at the end.

F1 » Dream start for Ferrari as Alonso wins on debut


I thought the race was dull but all you guys who are eagerly awaiting motogp for the spectacle off overtaking forgive me as I maybe wrong but isn't this series where the guy with the girly name valerie rossi keeps winning and not always fairly has a no.2 who whines about being no.2 even though he isn't as good as valerie the same 3 or 4 end up at the front as the their bikes are the best and their teams have most money so it only they that overtake each other each lap. I knw they overtake each other further down the field but so do f1 cars but you don't get to see that do you.

F1 » Dream start for Ferrari as Alonso wins on debut


The way to pass in f1 is (a) to follow as close behind the car in front as possible through the turns. This is now impossible as areo mostly = lack of front end grip added to overheating prevents staying close enough to (b) slipstream down the straight and drag past. Even if (a) was possible then overheating means you have to stay out off the slipstream = lack off overtaking. That is with out the overheating brakes etc and conserving engines. The engine rule does not help because everyone is turning the revs down half way through the race instesd of pressing in to catch the guy ahead.

F1 » Ecclestone: F1 could return to 'big mistake' Indy.


the wrong crowd? what's up Bernie didn't they pay enough to get in. Perhaps the yanks are too smart to be ripped off. Either that or they think when they go to a track like indy there should be some passing. Or (and heres a shock) maybe just some racing, not 6 cars 'parading' around. I agree if you want an F1 track with a an F1 style crowd Laguna Seca. However after seeing todays 'race' who would be intrested the americans like to see close competion with the drivers trying. How pi**ed would they be if after the race the currant champion said I wasn't trying that hard because of my tyres.
