F1 » ‘A lot more to come’ from Hamilton

Back to the brakes again. I can't understand why half the posters on crash don't believe theirs a learning curve with the massive amount of energy recovery vs last year. Some driving styles it might not matter, In Lewis' case it does. Anyone who's ridden down a steep hill on a 125cc two stroke dirt bike, then a 500cc four stroke, would understand the difference

F1 » New systems 'disturbing' drivers – Lotus

Now that the tyres are transmitting even more torque backwards to charge the PU, it became necessary to add another complicated system that can fail. The 'break' by wire. I think the effect these loads are going to have on Pirellis magic tyres is more wear, and a lot more spins, if Hamilton is having issues, so are others I can't imagine some software trying to duplicate the feedback from the road to your foot, after all your driving experience has been acquired with real brakes. In the future, when this technology crosses over to new road cars, glad I'll be racing wheel chairs.

F1 » New systems 'disturbing' drivers – Lotus

Okay, over time, I got used to power brakes and power steering. And I completely understand what David and Richard are saying. My point is if the drivers, not the engineers, are saying that they are having to adapt to the feed back from the road, and the harvesting is changing their cornering technique, then its another synthetic answer to a question that shouldn't have been asked. It can't be similar in feel to last year, if drivers are speaking out. And Richard ... when the mgu-k fails. the car fails. You won't need brakes very long.
