F1 » Vettel wins F1 2011 Turkish GP


Hi richard. what I'm getting at is... if you look at the size of the engineering departments of all the teams then it is clear that that Red Bull have a disadvantage in terms of ongoing development throughout the season. Re Bulls major advantage is that they have A Newey who is fantastic and tends to get it right first time. However Ferrari and McLaren can very quickly copy RB's ideas, improve them and also get their own new ideas onto the cars. Look how Ferrari and Mclaren improved throughout last season. Sure RB won but we all expected Alonso to win the championship at Abu Dhabi. It wasn't race pace that stopped Ferrari winning it just bad strategy. By end of this season Ferrari and Mclaren will have faster cars

F1 » Vettel wins F1 2011 Turkish GP


Great race. But anyone suggesting that Vettel is a cert' for the championship is just wrong. Ferrai and McLaren can bring more resource and improvemnets in a way that Red Bull can not. Once Alonso, Button and Hamilton can match Vettel for pace then they can beat him because Vettels one weakness is his ability to overtake / defend.

F1 » Pollock forms F1 engine company


Less any of you doubted the wisdom of my previous posts concerning new engine regs. Post the following link into you browser. Small highly blown turbo engines augmented with high speed electrical drives are the future. V8's have have had their day. If Ferrari sports cars don't change they also will become irrelevant and bettered in the performance stakes. telegraph.co.uk/motoring/car-manufacturers/jaguar/8497795/200mph-Jaguar-hybrid-supercar-confirmed.html

F1 » Pollock forms F1 engine company


These new engine regs are very much needed. If not F1 will become very much irrelevant. Small turbo hybrid engines are the future for the automotive industry. So remember the old maxim 'Race on Sunday sell on Monday'. With the new regs we may see the return of Honda, BMW and Toyota as these regs will allow them to show off thier technology. Only Ferrari and to a lesser extent Mclaren have a vested interest in large V8's. The teams that replaced the Honda/BMW/Toyota have been a bad joke. We badly need need these teams to return. I wish Pollock a happy return to F1. I'm not sure anyone can call him a failure after all the team he founded is still going strong and he will have made some good money out of his start up.

F1 » News Corp, Fiat confirms F1 interest


By a substantial majority you appear to be against News Corp getting involved in F1 and you have stated that you will no longer watch F1 if that should happen. This is great news! Most of you are flat earthers who always reject change. Very few of you appear to go to races around the globe but you are allways ready to rubbish the new circuits despite never witnessing them first hand. I look forward to more constructive posts when you have all moved on to another sport that you find comfortable to criticise..

F1 » News Corp, Fiat confirms F1 interest


This is great news for F1 fans. The only problem is that most fans can't or will not see it. This consortium will make a great success of F1 whereas the current owners CVC and Ecclestone have been making a real mess of this great sport. News Corp has an excellent track record in football and cricket, so, embrace change and look forward to an exciting future.

F1 » Rosberg: Current F1 regs 'take the enjoyment away'


Drivers have and drivers will always complain about the the regulations, that is what they do. But drivers opinions should not formulate the regulations. I have enjoyed F1 for many decades and I think it is as good as it ever has been. I always enjoy the impact of new regulations. It forces teams to inovate and that is what F1 is all about. Progress through change.
