F1 » Wolff: Lewis lost race in qualifying not pits


PCX I know you don't really follow F1 but have a look at the photo at the top right of this page. See the nice yellow markers? that's where the driver is supposed to centre his wheels when he stops. Notice that Lulu's wheels are a foot ahead of the markers, now you don't have to be a professor to work out that because of HIS positioning the pit crew are now a foot away from where they need to be. The only way it could be the pit crews fault was if they repainted the markers after he stopped! ( I shouldn't have said that you'll probably believe it to be true)

F1 » Hamilton ‘absolutely perfect in his head’


Lulu talking about his Silverstone chances on Planet F1 - "I am really confident I can do it this year. I have the car so there is no reason - and Nico's not the reason - why we should not be able to do it." "It's coming at the right time. I have had a couple of dodgy races, so I need to get it back to how it should be." Nico's not the reason why Lulu can't win? Is he saying Nico can't beat him? I beg to differ. "get back to how it should be" So Lulu winning every race is how it should be? So his team mate can't beat him and Lulu winning every race is how it should be, oh yes absolutely perfect, in his head.

F1 » HAVE YOUR SAY: Standing start restarts in F1?


Richard, Just because the teams vote for it doesn't mean they're voting for the good of the sport, they vote for what might work for them and the vast majority of teams (ie those that don't expect to be leading) probably see this as an opportunity to make up a place or two. I have a problem with changing the rules just to make things more "interesting" if a driver and team lead from lights to flag they deserve their win, that's how F1 has always been, no need to create fake situations to spice it up. I honestly feel they are dumbing down F1 to suit the casual observer.

F1 » Standing start restarts confirmed for 2015


George, Don't give them ideas they may be reading this. Ah sod it I may as well join in, They could run a lottery at the start to decide who gets what car, then another lottery to decide what qualifying position they start in. Then Simon Cowell could run a phone vote and the driver with the least votes gets sent home and just to finish the show off about if a white car hits a black car into a pocket (read gravel trap) they get 7 points like in snooker.

F1 » HAVE YOUR SAY: Standing start restarts in F1?


Their own stipulations for having standing starts confirm just how much of a show making gimmick this is. They wont happen in the first 2 laps or the last 5 laps, another way of saying there's enough interest in those parts of the race to keep the casual viewer watching. Absolutely ridiculous state of affairs, just how far they will go to improve the show is really worrying, where will it end?
