F1 » Massa puzzled by Williams weakness in wet

Not really a surprise. That is the penalty for running such a low down force car. In the dry they get the benefits but once damp or wet the low downforce works against them. Overall though they have gained massively by the direction they have gone to date and should have helped them get additional sponsorship but longer term if they want to make the next step they have to design a car with more downforce.

F1 » Ricciardo ponders Kvyat development contribution

Very disappointing in Rikki pointing the finger at Kvyat. He states that it was much better when Seb was there so is it not possible that he is as much of the problem and that his feedback is not good enough. Both rookies at Torro Rosso don't seem to be doing a bad job with the same engine and a lesser funded team so your claims do not seem to hold much water.

F1 » Pirelli: Rosberg tyre won’t be used again

benignlyindifferent: This is very strange. Earlier tire failures occurred partly because teams under inflated or ran tires on opposite sides of the car, placing to much strain on the carcass. Pirelli subsequently reverted to an older and safer construction. But this failure would have occurred with Mercedes running Pirelli's exact inflation recommendations. Something is amiss in the R & D department.
Unfortunately laboratory test can never fully replicate the tyre being on a racing car going round a circuit. Of course they never want a new design to blow out but this opportunity of testing real tyres on a competitive car has got to be better than previously. Can't have been nice for Rosberg but this type of testing is crucial to making the racing as safe as possible and to get a tyre that does what it says on the tin.
