F1 » Hamilton fastest after Rosberg error in FP2


CliffEdge:
Norville2: Rosberg error? that headline says to me that Hamilton only got fastest time because of Rosberg error....what error?
It says it clearly in the text. 'Rosberg was limited to fourth place as he ran wide at Turn 17 ..... and ruined his lap'.
The test does explain this, however, although K Mag and Alonzo were 2nd and third ahead of Rosberg, their times must have been irrelevant or non headline worthy.

F1 » FIA: ‘Nothing could have been done better’ post-crash


I still opine that from watching the home video (I regret watching) that the elevated marshall waiving the green flag was within meters of the crash site. As well as probably more visible above the spray for track level yellows. I'll also admit that I don't know if this was a contribution to the crash. It just was blatantly infuriating to see Green -Crash in the same frames.

F1 » Smedley: Closed F1 cockpits ‘very easy to implement’


NickSpeaks: What no one seems to be talking about is the martial in the tower directly above the incident waving a green bloody flag! The footage of this shocking accident is on YouTube and the martial can clearly be seen waving a green flag. WTF!
And, could the double yellows have been obscured by road spray, at track level, whilst the elevated marshal's waving green been easily seen? As another poster said, it's not a 'freak accident' if two cars loose control and end up crashing at the same spot.

F1 » Ecclestone unveils Azerbaijan track layout


Carpenter: Another pointless street circuit with 90 degree corners which offers no close racing opportunities and is just a money maker for Bernie. Take the racing to where the fans are and tracks which offer a good spectacle! No French, Dutch, Portuguese GP but we have a Singapore, Azerbaijan, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain GP doesn't make sense to me.
Follow oil production and the princes willing to spend oil money, thats what started this trend. But now, using that formula, Canada should have a race in every Providence, the USA another in North Dakota. Mexico, another big exporter is already on the list.

F1 » What we learned at the Japanese Grand Prix


richard: walrus. and how many hydraulic cranes would be needed for a 5.8 km circuit? and how would they be able to reach all parts of the track ? (an accident can happen anywhere). all tracks would have to have an equal length service road outside the barriers. also, f1 might be able to afford a number of cranes, but unless they were prepared to ship them aound the world, it is the circuits that would have to pay for these. something they already do by hiring in the equipment. also the cars already have special warning lights for denoting the doubl wave yellow (prepare to stop) signal . there is no easy answer to this once in a lifetime problem
Now that the footage is available to all on you tube showing the crazed marshall crazily waving his green flag, as Jules crashes, my point is mute BTW, I've rented a cherry picker, delivered for $1500 a week, that would easily reach over the barriers and pick up a F1 car. They're available everywhere
