F1 » Hamilton: You rely on the team...


I am an airline pilot. You are trained to obey air traffic control without question. They are able to see the full picture and situation on they're far more sophisticate radar system. My plane (type rated B757/767) has a far less limited radar system. So if ATC tells you to climb, or descend, and you don't understand why. You will still comply with ATC instructions. They can see the full picture, and the plane can not. I think Hamilton reacted the same way any sensible pilot would react.

F1 » Hamilton: You rely on the team...


TCAS is not perfect. That mid air collision was part due that one of the aircraft was not set to 29.92 on the altimeter setting. That was a major cause for an inaccurate TCAS response. That has been studied to death in the Sim. ATC radar can read actual height and not just transponder reported altitude. Major difference. Again that is why you trust ATC. The same way Hamilton trusted his pit wall. Human error will always occurs, and and planes have been lost to ATC mismanagement. See Philippines charter in 1986 with a CFIT crash. However with reliability over 99%, we can trust ATC. 99% of the time the pit wall gets it right. THIS IS A GREAT ANALOGY.

F1 » Six things to look out for in F1 in 2015


Taipan, you sulk like a girl every time Hamilton wins. Henceforth you sulk often. Dry your eyes on your pretty dress. Also it is two time world champion Lulu. You seem to leave out the two time world champion part. You can also go with defending world champion Lulu. I will never stop enjoying your hypocrisy. Please keep it up, its just hilarious all the time.
