F1 » Massa: I've always done well in Bahrain, but....


Massa is no Alonso but he is not as bad as all of these comments suggest. This Ferrari is a red bucket of bent bolts. It is a piece of shyte with wheels. Alonso makes the car look much better than it is which unfortunately reflects badly on Massa who can't do that. I wish that they do replace him now but feel sorry for the poor replacement who needs to steer this thing.

F1 » Mercedes fined after Schumacher pit-stop gaffe


Richard, Yes I remember when Ferrari tried and abandoned this idea. As far as I know this system works on detecting the removal of the wheel-gun from the nut. All four done equals green light and go. Now in this case the wheel-gun would not work properly so the mechanic had to reach for the spare but on removing it it said go to the lights ... comedy of errors. The Ferrari effort at least had a button for the wheel man to push when he was finished. This system is a complete joke as the wheel man knew that there was a problem but he could not stop it.

F1 » Vettel (yes, Vettel) misses Q2 cut


It seems to me that this year without the EBD and the slightly better tyres that the aggressive drivers are getting much more from the car compared to the 'driving miss daisy' tyre saving plodders. Webber is cleary better than Vettel , Hamilton is clearly better than Button and Schumi is not so clearly better than Rosberg. And so it should be ... F1 is becoming interesting again.

F1 » Rosberg claims Chinese GP pole


This is an awesome result for Merc GP. This track is going to slaughter the tyres though and with such a big differential between the two compounds this should be very interesting. I am hoping for some rain to throw a cat among the pigeons. That would be really interesting and maybe Schumi can do it :-)

F1 » Lotus' Mercedes protest dismissed


The timing of this protest was not clever. Lotus F1 should have protested at the first race OR after the first race if they wanted to. Nothing has changed since then. I hope that they don't appeal, teams need to just get on with it now. The protest fee should be 200 000 Euro and not 2000, it is just too cheap for these guys.

F1 » Lotus protests Mercedes wing


There is no rule that governs holes in the rear wing end-plate or running of air ducts between the front and rear wings. These holes or ducts are not moveable ( PASSIVE) . All cars have the DRS button which performs the same function i.e. To open the rear wing. The fact that it uncovers the hole in the end-plate is not illegal ... Against the spirit of the rules , YES , but not illegal. If it is illegal then brakes are also illegal as slowing the car down affects the aero by driver intervention.
