F1 » Honda confident of matching Mercedes on F1 return


107SS2009: I personally see no advantage for Honda going on track with their PU a year later than the others as that is an advantage of the others that Honda could not have. In F1 matters final validation of anything that is part of the car can only be made on track.
What if Honda started with the 'conventional turbo/MGU-H unit, saw Merc's split system, and did an engineering reversal along the lines of Merc's superior design? That would be an advantage. Of course it's an 'if'

F1 » Ferrari confirms Haas F1 engine supply


ProfessorX:
otto6457: Haas owns the most advanced wind tunnel in the world called Windshear. A 180 mph rolling-road tunnel. So in theory, Haas should have a pretty good aero package when they take the grid. If Ferrari can fix their anemic power unit, maybe Haas won't be the next Caterham.
you need guys who have been in the game long enough to know what to look for too. A wind tunnel by itself is useless unless you have the talent to realize what is going on and what the problems really are.
I don't see why they need this uber wind tunnel for spec (nascar) racing. I guess Hass entered F1 to put it to some real use.

F1 » Tracks like Spa ‘vital’ for F1, insists Gastaldi


Taz: @Strider Falling out of love with F1 very rapidly. Went to the Ulster GP at the weekend. Now that's entertainment, average 131mph on small country lanes round a 7 mile track while racing each other on bikes chucking out 220 plus bhp. Absolutely bonkers. Been to 4 GP's but none were anywhere near as exciting or entertaining as this....or the forests back in the 90s when Colin was on maximum attack on the 95 RAC. I can't imagine spending the money to go to a GP while the sport is in it's current state.
That's why Yer Man, Joey is my all time hero. Ever seen the 'Road Racers' film or DVD? Hooked for life, is me.

F1 » Maldonado keen for Grosjean to stay


" Maldonado who signed a new one-year contract extension at the German Grand Prix said the pair work well together and would be happy for the line-up to remain unchanged." When your teammate crashes in the garage, warm up lap, 1st turn, simulator, etc. and keeps bringing millions, that would work well, as long as the carnage is behind you!

F1 » Grosjean considering future over break


KillingTime: I had high hopes for Romain. He showed signs of brilliance, but things are not going his way - and patience is short in F1. He might be happier and better off following Mark Webber to Le Mans Prototypes/Sports Cars. Less pressure with all the excitment and real racing. Besides, F1 is going away from being the pinnacle of motor racing with having to save energy, save tires, harvesting energy, having to coast. It's no longer the all-out full effort racing it once was.
Great post. But it looks likes F1 has already left us.
