F1 » Vettel, RBR to discuss ignored orders


I'd like to see the information the team had which inspired the order to retire the car. Was it really an emergency? Did RBR see that they weren't going to get points from Vettel and decide that a retirement would be advantageous heading to China? The car made it to the finish line, but who knows. I like that the guy wants to race, but this isn't his first instance of ignoring the team. Wasn't he told in Germany AND India last year not to push for fast lap late in the race? Yet I believe he did just that in both instances. I don't know, tough to decide as of yet. Part of me embraces the racer, the other is concerned he thinks he's bigger than the team. Is it a case of someone who thinks he's bigger than the team (or maybe that he IS the team), or simply a racer who wants to race? Thoughts, anyone?

F1 » Karthikeyan: Vettel comments 'shameful'


Angelina, I worked for a few years, but am back at school now. I'm finishing up my undergrad in biology. I'll be taking the MCAT, most likely in December. I was born in September 86. As far as the GP in Texas goes - we'll see. The summer date worked with my schedule better as I wouldn't have had to miss any class. Being in Arizona, the heat wouldn't have been a big deal for me.

F1 » Karthikeyan: Vettel comments 'shameful'


The incident with Button was different. I believe Button said he was braking a little bit too late and slid the nose into Karthikeyan's HRT, which due to the rain was actually for position. Respect to Button for owning up and moving forward - I like the guy more and more with each race weekend. Now, as far as Vettel is concerned, I initially thought the incident was his fault. I looked at the replay here (www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SYn6fAIRU4) though and must say it looks like Karthikeyan moved to the right and that is when the contact occurred. Could Vettel have given the HRT more room? Yeah, probably. I'm certainly not a Vettel fan but I don't personally find the middle finger to be all that offensive. I was more disappointed that he made comments in more than one post-race interview. The gestures came in the heat of the moment, competitors can be frustrated - It happens, and it will happen again.

F1 » Hamilton: It wasn't my day


Tomcol - Hamilton was right there to offer his hand to Button as button got out of the car. Ghost - Put those 21 drivers in the car that took pole position, and who's sister car won the race in dominant fashion and tell me that they'd still be happy about going backwards. If they are then I think that is a bigger issue. Button drove an excellent race today and was insanely fast - He deserved the win. And from Hamilton's perspective it has to be alarming that Button was so much faster in the same car. He can't allow that to effect him any further than the disappointment though, and he'll need to get over it quickly. First real test to determine if he's matured from 2011 is right here. A podium is decent, and there are plenty of opportunities ahead provided that he keeps his focus and works hard with the team. Looks to be an exciting season ahead and will be interesting to see which car is best suited to Malaysia.

F1 » Protest looming 'down under'?


Good points 2pac and Richard. I haven't done very much searching yet so my understanding may be wrong, but as far as I can tell essentially the duct is believed to be passive (effectively an open duct which is shielded while the wing flap is closed?). The motion of the wing flap opening removes this "shielding" and "activates" the effect from the duct? I'll do some looking when I get home from work tonight, but if anyone has further information please correct me. If that is how it works then I suppose the ruling could go in either direction. I believe Whiting said in his opinion the Lotus ride height control system was legal, and we all know how that ended up.

F1 » Rossi secures Caterham test role


I know Rossi did well in the Formula BMW Americas series in 2008, but I've not seen anything from GP3 or GP2 or FR3.5. Richard, It'd be nice to see him as driver for one of the teams further up the grid, but as far as the three new teams go I think this has to be the best launching point for a young driver. Caterham looks to be serious about improving.
