F1 » Magnussen happy to start on equal footing in Sochi


The F1 pundits seem to be jumping to the conclusion that IF Alonso moves to McLaren Button will be the one making way for him, how can that make sense? Button has completely out classed Magnussen this year - JB 7th in the championship with 82 points, KM 12th on 39 points. After the first race Kevin's best result is 7th (twice) in the same time Button has had two 4ths, a 5th and three 6th places. The gap between Button and Magnussen is far bigger than the gap between Button and Perez last year, so why is the pressure on Button? Is it down to all the noise that Uncle Ron made after the first race this year about Kevin being the greatest thing since sliced bread? And before the fanboys get involved, yes I know Button is slow, cant race, etc etc :rolleyes:

F1 » Bianchi 'critical but stable' after crash


So to cut a long story short I'm to believe that showing double yellows at that marshal post during the first half of the recovery of Sutil's car was right, showing a green flag at that marshal post once Sutil's car was in the air was right and showing a green flag at that marshal post for one minute after Jules crashed was right? I'll respectfully agree to differ.

Alain Prost's view- "There was an error, that is clear. Whose? I still have doubts. “Was it the direction of the race or the officials who were at the corner?” As for the green flag - "It should have been at least a hundred metres away,” he insisted. He's obviously another one who shoots from the hip and doesn't understand flag meanings, at last I'm in good company.......

46Renovation: Hey guys, anyone seen, heard or heard of Jean Todt lately?
I've not heard or seen him make any comment on Jules' accident but he apparently told the following to the Belgian broadcaster RTL. “We may assume that Schumacher can live a relatively normal life within a short period of time,” “What we can say is that he will probably never again drive a formula one car.” RTL said Todt, 68, visited Schumacher at his home on the shore of Lake Geneva in the week before the Japanese grand prix. “He fights. His condition improves, which is very important,” said Todt, “as is the fact that he is now home with his family.” (GMM) Fantastic news if it's true and quite a surprise.

WYNK: The only thing to be glad of is that the heavy lifter hadn't started its backward movement a second before it did or we would certainly be talking about a fatality.
WYNK, It may well have been better for Jules if it had moved backwards, having a head on collision with the recovery vehicles wheel may have been far safer than going under the back of the lifter.
