F1 » Jenson Button to stay at McLaren-Honda

Good to have Button on the grid for another season, I'm kind of surprised though as he has looked completely fed up with it all recently. I can only assume (and hope) that Ron and Honda have given some cast iron guarantees that things will improve next year. Personally I don't think he's staying for the money, he's not exactly hard up.

F1 » F1 moves for louder cars in 2016

About bloody time, the only question is why didn't they make the exhaust alteration for this season? I'd like to say to all of the people who said you'll get used to the quiet cars in a few races - you were completely wrong! One and a half years later and I still despise these farty sounding motors. The sound of proper F1 cars was spine tingling and since they silenced them a big part of the drama of F1 has been lost. Before you say it, of course the noise levels don't make the racing any better or worse but crap noisy racing is better than crap quiet racing.

F1 » Manor confirms Mercedes engine deal for 2016

btr100: So, this will be the Mercedes 'B Team' now?
They already have a B team, Rosberg's side of the garage...
LOL, And they probably told him this over the radio but he just does not understand it.
I see Merc are giving Manor the 2016 spec PU. Niki - "Sorry Nico we had to give Manor your 2016 engines, but we have some really good 2014 engines for you, only done 4 or 5 races each but we'll give them a good service"

F1 » Haas: Grosjean will be an important asset

LoveF1: @ Taipan, Sports personalities and protagonists make statements like that all the time. It's just some good old fashioned psychological 'fighting talk' and nothing more. Pretty much like some English football commentators ...
I don't agree Love Rules, I'm no fan of some biased English commentators but I haven't heard them saying the Premiership is the best league because it's full of Englishmen and England is the best country in the World. That's pretty much what Haas said, then went and bought a bunch of Italian things and employed a bunch of European people. I would imagine his comments were meant to stir up some nationalistic interest in the US maybe he didn't realise that the rest of the World would also read it. To be fair I have a dislike of nationalism, it takes a special kind of small mindedness to think your country is better than all the rest.

F1 » Haas confirms Romain Grosjean for maiden F1 season

here4thesun2: I think they will be upper-mid-field ( 5-10 --- 7-12 ) out of the gate if they get current spec engines.
Forgive me for my lack of knowledge, but has any new team apart from Brawn ever had such a good start for their debut season?
Tyrrell had 3 races at the end of 1970. 1971 was their first full season and they won the drivers championship with Jackie Stewart and the constructors championship.

F1 » Haas: Grosjean will be an important asset

LoveF1: Who cares??? Sorry guys, but why are we so hung up about American this and American that?
Only because Haas himself said "we will beat the Europeans at their own game, The USA is the most advanced country on earth, this will be an American led team not a European led team" If he hadn't said those things no one would give a toss that the chassis is Italian, the PU is Italian, the driver is French and the team principal is Italian.
