F1 » Red Bull appeal rejected

letgo: I am not saying get rid of the fuel flow restriction, or get rid of a regulatory sensor. I am saying that the current solution is not fit for purpose and should be replaced. It cannot be used for equality as it gives an advantage / disadvantage dependent upon luck of the draw regarding which sensor you are assigned and it certainly should not be used to affect a race result!! I would liken this decision to taking a finishing position away from a driver who's transponder stopped working correctly and stopped updating the 'official timing' with his/her lap count, because according to the 'official sensor' he/she had not completed the race distance, even though there is sufficient evidence (TV coverage and ECU data as an absolute bare minimum!) that the race distance was completed! If I were RBR, I would have acted no differently at Melbourne. Regardless of advice from the FIA based upon GIGO readings, they were complying with rules. End of story. Today is a sad day

F1 » Rosberg heads extremely close FP2

My hypothesis is Redbull found a way to produce a massive burst of power at the start of races last year. They were then able to build a sufficient cushion and cruise to the win. Their intention was to follow a similar performance model this year. but since the current regulations allow the FIA to more closely monitor power output, the plan is to have the rules changed and the regulation removed. I take into consideration the warning from Ferrari to be wary of anyone trying any trickery. I'm sorry if I left everyone out of left field.

F1 » Rosberg heads extremely close FP2

Has anyone thought that Daniel might have taken one for the team. Assume that they willingly exceeded the flow limit hoping to argue against the accuracy of the sensors. Assume that they are hoping to get the sensors removed. Assume that they know full well that a fixed fuel allowance cannot be properly monitored in relation to produceable power. Would it not leave them in prime position to replicate the performance model of the 2013 car, massive power at the start, lead cushion, and then a cruise to the finish using their aero advantage.

F1 » Kate Walker: Fuel madness

physics: I stand with Fullofit on this one. For the competition to be fare, one should abide by the rules. That means the teams and FIA. If someone brakes the rules they should take their punishment. If RedBull did in fact breach the 100kg/h rule they were DQed for, they should stay excluded from the results. If FIA used inaccurate data to judge fuel flow and RedBull prove they didn't brake the rule, give them the podium back. The one thing that bugs me most is, that the stewards knew there are problems with the sensor and they never did switch to the FIA provided back up system. Any one planning to slam my comment, please do it directly with answers to my points and reasoning to why they think this is incorrect. BTW I approve the fuel flow limit 100%, and I want to see it enforced correctly.
The teams as well as the FIA, being aware of a problem with the sensors had already decided on an accepted offset. This went some way towards satisfying everyones' c

F1 » New chief for Russian F1 Grand Prix

Can we take political stances when we cannot trust the messages we are getting. Embedded news teams missed all the real news in Iraq and Afghanistan while being there. How accurate can their reports be when they are not. Someone shook a tree and the ripe fruit fell, leaves and unripe fruit fell also. Moral of the story, dont shake the tree unless you are prepared for all the cleanup. Now if we can only get accurate info on the Redbull problem.

F1 » Ricciardo excluded from Australian GP

Interesting comments folk, quite enjoyed the race even with the unfortunate early exits. Note to Rich et al re Koba's accepting the blame for the accident. It's a cultural thing, example being an unfortunate incident in New York where a young lady, having fallen on the train track and had her legs severed, apologised for causing the delay that prevented people getting to work on time.

F1 » ‘A lot more to come’ from Hamilton

B T: I was reading an article about driver rotation across teams during a season. And also considering someone like Sir Stirling Moss could possibly have out driven any car provided. Is he perhaps the best F1 driver ever?
Not the best F1 driver ever but who knows what could have happened if he had not finished his career early he could of gone on even to win a WDC. I know he out drove the great Fangio on many occasions but as Fangio is regarded as one of the best I would say maybe Mossy could go down as the best driver ever not to win a WDC tittle. And maybe the second best Silver Arrows driver in history, after Fangio. Hamilton is miles behind.
Silver Arrows in my recollection referred to German Grand Prix cars including Auto Union and involved drivers such as Rosemeyer and Hans Stuck sr. Stuck jr, even for his brief sojourn in F1 was regarded as brilliant especially in the wet. We can appreciate his skill in road racing . By
