F1 » Hamilton: F1 'painfully slow' with Pirelli


@GaryButton Fan I think it's you who needs to get a grip mate. If you had read my comment properly you would see that have all the respect in the world for Jenson. You're right this is the pinnacle of motor sport. So explain to me how will slowing it down with inferior tyres will make it better? I said quite clearly in that last comment that management of tyres is important, but early signs show that these tyres will die after 10 laps. Which has a knock on effect on over taking (on track) and slows races down. Drivers will think twice about late breaking into a corner incase they destroy all ready weak look rubber. And in response to your other ridiculous statement, if all you want to see is 24 cars driving slowly round in circles you should give up on F1 and visit your local TESCO on a Saturday afternoon. Check out some of that car park action mate, intense! You complete idiot.

F1 » Hamilton: F1 'painfully slow' with Pirelli


I don't care how many negatives I get for this one, its rant time. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'd prefer to watch 24 Hamilton's/Vettel's or Senna's rather than 24 Button's. Dont get me wrong I think Button is a class act, but I like to see wheel to wheel, late breaking, super fast action. Not "well I enjoyed watching him manage his tyres to victory". Maybe with changing conditions and the right tyre choices at the right times but not for 19 or 20 (fingers crossed) races a season simply because that tyre manufacturer was prepared to pay more - we need a tyre war! If Lewis is telling the truth then 9 laps on tyres he was taking it easy on means that they last what? 6 or 7 laps at full pelt, maybe less? And with the 2013 changes? Makes a man sad.

F1 » McLaren duo admit downforce, reliability concerns


Usually when a team brings something different to the plate, Mclarens side pods or Renaults new exhaust set up it, it often goes spectacularly one way or the other. Although I'm a huge Mclaren fan, I think it's renaults exhaust features that will be the most copied part this season. Still I hope im sitting here 19 (or 20) races from now thinking, "they were sandbagging!" - Doubt it though.

F1 » Liuzzi 'would bring experience, not money' to HRT


I am not a fan of "pay drivers" infact I am 100% against the idea. I believe that only the best of the best should have the priveledge of driving any F1 car. But in this case HRT would be better suited to taking a pay driver. Liuzi has experience, for sure, but so do a lot of drivers that havent got a seat AND they will bring more quality than Liuzi. Don't give me the crap about F2 etc he is not good enough to drive an F1 car. He proved that in a more than capable Force India. HRT should get Sato to comeback (long shot I know). He would provide not only experience but more quality than Liuzi and more money.

F1 » Will tightening contracts protect drivers, but harm F1?


Bring back testing I say. That way, teams will benefit two-fold. 1) They can gather more data through the season. 2) No restrictions needed on the contracts as drivers will be keeping sharp by driving an F1 car on weekends off - the thing they're paid to do. So they wont be looking to other drives to stay sharp. Maybe I'm naive but this would be a better solution than putting them in bubble wrap between races. After all is said and done, though, Kubica's accident was that - an accident. Its not like every year we lose 5+ drivers through similiar accidents! This is *relatively* a one-off (touch wood).
