F1 » Williams urges more fan research to develop F1


They could start their research by visiting crash.net and other similar F1 resources around the world as all the info they need is already there and has been written for some time. Aside from a car changes which imo shouldn't be drastic as that adds costs but getting rid of fuel flow sensor and just giving teams a set amount of fuel to get to the finish line as quickly as possible by whatever means they deem best would spice up the show along with dropping mandatory running of both tyres again allowing teams to use all soft tyres (with less life) for a race, all harder compound or any combination in between surely is better than the current system which while interesting for a few years when introduced has now been honed to the point were pretty much all the leading teams run the same tyre compounds at each stage of a race. Re: tracks, drop circuits that have poor attendances as while the local organisers in ME and some other places may well be able to summon £30-40m to boost Bernie'

F1 » McLaren ends testing with 32 laps-a-day average


I don't understand why teams (at least big ones like McLaren) don't have full car dyno's (not just engine) to perform extensive testing of the complete systems weeks or months before hitting the track. It might not emulate the loads and stresses on the a chassis of a laps of a track but the complete power unit and control systems can be worked hard and little things like water leaks or that other gaskets that failed would surely be likely to be picked up.

F1 » McLaren announcement set for Thursday


richard: moi. the problem is that the japanese have absolutely no input in the board of macca directors. so whether or not button is adored by the japanese, is completely irrelevant.
not irrelevent, they may have no direct input but I'm sure their thoughts on who they'd like to seeing driving the car with the engine they're exclusivly 'giving' to McLaren will be taken on board. They're not daft, they'll know Alonso is more likely than Jenson to be able to deliver a championship if the car and engine can match the Merc but Jenson is a safe pair of hands with which to get the points required for the constructors. I wouldn't be surprised if Honda's PU et al is a match for the Merc given the extra time they're had to study the opposition and still haven't had to homologante it yet so we'll probably find they've followed Merc with the general layout iirc something to do with the turbo being driven on opposite side via a shaft the Renault and Ferrari haven't done

F1 » McLaren announcement set for Thursday


It'll be Jenson for a number of reasons, the Japanese love him and assuming Alonso definetly has a seat Jenson will make a good number two. McLaren and Honda I expect are hoping to challenge right away and if they have a car and engine that can do that, they'll prefer an obvious #1 driver would we alll know is what Alonso expects to be in any team. Jenson will help bring in steady points for the constructors. Mag. will get the reserve and probably all going well get a seat in 2016 when Jenson retires assuming no one better comes along. That said, it wouldn't suprise me if Ron is pulling a fast one and hasn't already signed Alonso but has his carrot dangling in front of him only to whip it away at the last minute in revenge for $100m :p

F1 » Horner: F1 teams not here to sponsor each other


If there's 11 teams and the last 2/3 placed teams each season get next to FA then how are they supposed to improve given the miracle that is Red Bull sponsorship from its billionaire owner isn't something that every team can hope for, I'd imagine if Dietrich Mateschitz pulled the plug on sponsoring the Red Bull team and no equal sponsor came forward then a few seasons down the line the team could find itself struggling financially which in turn effects results which in turn means scoring less points which due to Bernie's lack of skills with a calculator exasperates the problem till there's no prize money and no sponsor willing to make up the difference....CATCH 22 Reasonable sums should be available from the top all the way to the bottom team. I'd like to see maybe the top 4/5 teams sharing 60% of the prize fund and the remaining 5/6 teams splitting the other 40% as the top teams will always have plenty of top ups to their funds by way of works engine deals and bigger paying sponsor

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Is it safe ever?’


...If they feel the need to do something that helps safety, then by all means mandate some sort of protective steel skirting to vehicles that 'may' operate inside the barrier but they should really look at the drivers and rules in relation to a double yellow as it might be better automatically to turn on the pit lane speed limiter on all the cars that enter the section with double yellows as the real cause was most probably Biachi (like the others) doing 95% the speed he would have done if no yellows....not quite as restrictive as 'fun karting' where they insist you do no more than walking pace when the yellows are on but if everyone does the same slower speed then no one wins or looses too much.

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Is it safe ever?’


richard is right, what we don't need is FIA or Bernie having a knee jerk reaction to this and mandating this that or other 'fix'. If they changed nothing then I doubt in the next 20 years we'll see the same accident happen again as it was freak occurrence. There was no reason to red flag for Sutils car as you see crashes where a car is recovered many times in a year. The rain wasn't to blame either as some cars pitted when the yellows came out and most of them opted for a new set of inters which wouldn't make sense if the track had got as bad as it was at the start.
