F1 » Marko: Mercedes engine a masterpiece – but bad for F1


It's not the Merc engine that's bad for F1 it's the rules that prevent others from catching up. Merc did a great job with the engine fair play to them on that front, yes they do everything possible to prevent competition but that's another story. And you cant just blame the FiA for the silly rules as the teams signed up to them. It should have been recognised that when all new, very complicated regulations came out for the new PU's that one manufacturer might do a much better job than everyone else and to agree to an development freeze straight after the inception of these PU's was just asking for trouble. I'm guessing all the engine manufacturers were arrogant enough to think they'd build the best PU and hold the long term advantage, this is why the FiA should have had the foresight to do the right thing for the sport and realise that in season development would be necessary.

F1 » Rosberg concludes F1 2015 with Abu Dhabi win


theeagle: To those that criticise Lewis ( for not winning) - it does not take a genius to work out it was pure fixing and staging, (like JoL/ Marquez/Pedrossa/ Rossi in MotoGP) Lewis just seeing the season out.
It certainly doesn't take a genius to believe your theory, it takes someone who's soft in the head! Why is Lulu blaming the tracks, strategy, tyres, suspension for him not winning? and why is Lulu begging for a better strategy than his team mate and using forbidden engine strats in an attempt to beat his team mate if as you believe he's just seeing out the season and not really trying? Do you really think Lulu would play along with Merc fixing races for Nico? He'd see it as a crime against Lulukind and take it to the United Nations man!

107SS2009:
Taipan: Sunny, yes I know it improved this season from no development to some development but it was still far too limited with the token system, and look at the penalties involved. Alonso getting 150 place grid penalty was just silly, he wouldn't have got a penalty like that if he'd set fire to Bernie's wig!
So Bernie have a wig and Lulu have plastic hair, which do you think is the best?
Tough call, I'd say baldness would be the better option.

rob01: There is practically NO limitations on changes that can and HAVE been made to the other power units. Its only fun to complain about Merc holding back the others. The token system is a TOTAL joke. The changes a team can make are practically wide open. And that includes this year.
If development is wide open strange that so many penalties have been handed out. Yes I know the penalties where largely down to using too many motors but limiting the teams to 4 PU's is part of the rules that I disagree with. I believe the 4 PU rule was to save money, and the new PU's cost 10-15 times more than the old V8's.... Brilliant.
