F1 » Wolff plays down call to manage Rosberg attack


Drivers today have a better chance to show their individual talents as no No1 driver has an exclusive to the cars as was once the case.Per olden times Lewis would have been given Nico's car at the 2014 Canadian GP and other races. F1 is as much about a technology race between car manufacturers, fuel suppliers, brake, exhaust, lubricant providers etc as it is about drivers. There is so much for the true fan to explore and to enjoy.

F1 » Wolff plays down call to manage Rosberg attack


To all those who claim to have been watching F1 for a long time, who claim that the old days were so much better for showing true champions, who claim that in season test bans hurts all except Mercedes and on and on. F1 has always been regarded as the pinnacle of motorsports despite cars in other series such as Le Mans or Indy having much higher top speeds since an F1 car does everything in a much smaller time sequence. It brakes, turns, accelerates,decelerates in fractions of the times used by others. The integrity of the cars is also much more advanced. Teams have always got it wrong or right during a season and no matter how much additional testing was allowed, were seldom if ever able to recoup enough performance to go to the front from a bad start.

F1 » Renault F1 future to hinge on Mercedes leniency?


richard:
35edme: What secret tyre test are you on about?
oh dear....two years ago merc did a secret tyre test using a current car with their current drivers (trying to be incognito) . that was against the rules as they were only allowed to use a 2 year old car. they were trying to gain data on the 2014 tyres. they were punished by fia.
Does Mercedes make tyres and do they own or control Pirelli ? There were no Mercedes tyres used as far as we know.

richard:
SoSlo: this is so sad you don't know what a fan is a fan (of fanatic) cares greatly about what they are invested in if you actually enjoy this "F1" then i dare say it is YOU who are not really a fan
pinky is 100% correct. a real fan follows their sport through all its changes. i have been following f1 since its inception and have never waivered. and i still find it as interesting today as it was at the start. if you dont want to watch it, fine, but dont show yourself up as a fly-by-night follower, who probably is just a fan of one individual. and funny, by your own admission you did not even watch, so how can you comment on something you did not see?
Agreed Rich.

Keet: example what this could be about as an issue is way i might see it. Lewis having to save brakes or fuel so on save mode = lewis told to save. Nico his car is not in a bad way = save mode but not needed lewis gains. nico could have a better car at that point but not given a chance to make use of it. it would show via telemetry and if messages were at about the same times and what the car temps fuel was on those messages. if anything like that happend could of but we would never know this. was the gap managed by the team you would have to ask. dont dis only saying thats how i can see it happen.
Just one problem for your facts. Race control has realtime transmission of all data ,so don't need to ask any team.

F1 » Six of the Best: Defeats snatched from victory's jaws


PDizzle: I'm very surprised that you left off Jacques Villeneuve F1 debut in Adelaide. He was cruising to his maiden F1 victory in his maiden F1 race and setting the F1 world on it's head until he had that oil leak out the back of his Williams and had to give the win up to his teammate Hill. That race stands out to me as one of the most incredible entertaining races I've ever witnessed. The cars were absolutely gorgeous (not like the funky looking **** boxes of today) and they had limited electronics with close to 1,000 bhp and sounded as sexy as they looked. I must be getting old when I look back to an era fondly and discredit todays. What do you guys think?
Williams FW15 quite possibly the F1 car with the most electronics ever, active suspension, traction control, push to pass etc.

F1 » Mosley lashes out at ‘absurd’ F1 driver salaries


Reality check everyone. Most of us over 50 can identify schoolmates who were excellent at several sports but who never followed those sports as a means of livelyhood . They became doctors,lawyers,firemen, policemen,even bums. Suddenly it became more prestigious and profitable to be in sports,music, photography etc. Whose fault is this. Supermodel, what does this project. Justin Beiber anyone, what about Donald Trump. Hamilton is a latecomer. What is so different about him that his perceived salary should suddenly cause a tilt in the earth's axis. Honest replies only.
