F1 » McLaren-Honda F1 car to run on Friday


Red Bull tinkered with the fuel flow, do you remember the performance of the car ? Imagine if Mercedes didn't have to de-tune for long term reliability and increased fuel flow a little, what do you think the performance would be like . These cars are performing at levels comparable to the V8, V10, V12 models whilst being throttled.

F1 » McLaren-Honda F1 car to run on Friday


While some will rubbish the modern F1 car as compared to the older models , nostalgia aside, the older cars would not be as competitive against the current breed. With a full race load of fuel the performance would suffer massively, the braking would not be on par. Taking into account the restrictions on engine revs and fuel consumption, adding the requirement to baby the modern engine for multiple race distances, it is strange to see these aficionados claiming that F1 is regressing.

If it were possible to run both cars in a race today which would you pick as the winner and by how much.

Taipan:
Taz: Seriously? That's progress for you :rolleyes: Considering how flimsy the cars were back then, even more kudos to the drivers doing it back then.
Yup, and too make things even worse 89 was the year after the turbos were banned in an attempt to slow things down, but it was still faster than the current crap. I've just thought of something else, in 89 the Rettifilo was a double chicane and now it's a single chicane so the track should be faster now!

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Is it safe ever?’


Ignoring waved double yellows shows that the driver was playing the odds that it wasn't that serious. The gamble didn't pay off. An alert advising of a possible STOP situation should have been accepted as IN MY BEST INTEREST and Jules should have been alert and cautious . Don't blame the game blame the player this time . I am still praying for his return to good health and F1 but facts are facts.

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Is it safe ever?’


Like any serious F1 fan I am praying for Bianchi's full recovery . I will however state that this has to be considered driver/team error as the flags as well as team instruction were more than enough to have alerted him to the fact that someone had slid off the track due either to that driver's error or a track/conditions problem. Extra caution should have been exercised.

F1 » Dennis’ dig at Mercedes F1 engines


benignlyindifferent: Also, Christian Horner's comments that factory teams have an additional advantage by having access to the software coding to help tune the power unit's characteristics is an advantage RB will enjoy next year with Renault. Mercedes no doubt denies all its customer teams access to this coding, Mclaren in particular, considering their switch to Honda next year.
Doesn't Ron and company supply all of the software.

F1 » Dennis’ dig at Mercedes F1 engines


Fullofit: Everyone knows I'm no fan of Ron, but he does have a point ... and Toto pretty much confirmed it without going so far as to say the actual words. And anyone who believes that all the customer teams are treated equally needs to ask how Williams, in their first year with Mercedes power, received so much information about the engine during their design phase that allowed them to integrate the systems so much better than McLaren or Force India. Toto's shareholding and relationships with Williams is the main reason for their miracle revival this year. Even if the actual engines are exactly the same, the information and integration of them is a key factor with the new PU's.
Doesn't Mclaren provide all the control units and does he give inferior units to Merc.

F1 » Rosberg wants 'F1 constructors’ title out of the way’


WYNK: I'll sign up to the peace accord. If I can make an observation though, multiple disagrees of a forum post don't necessarily mean multi-rgb's, it might actually mean folk don't agree.... Re 107s speech, I've been around a long time too, but I do think things are worse now, because racist etc comments are easyish to moderate away, childish put-down 'humour' less so, and I'm sure the almost knee jerk inclusion of phrases like brain fart and fanboy not only incites people but puts others (with worthwhile insights to offer) off contributing at all
Agree.
