F1 » Magnussen happy to start on equal footing in Sochi


richard: ty. you seem to be forgetting that magnussen has been penalised a number of times, and has lost quite a few points in the process.
Have I? He forced Alonso off the track at Spa and got a 20 second penalty, then he forced Bottas off the track at Monza and got a 5 second penalty those certainly cost him a few points,although if he was particularly attached to those points he could have chosen not to push Alonso and Bottas off the road and kept them.

F1 » F1 drivers want answers on Bianchi crash


The only good thing that can come from a serious accident is lessons in preventing it from happening again. Lessons include, enforcing waved yellow flag rules, when was the last time you seen a driver slow down and prepare to stop when waved yellows were displayed? Safety cars to be used when heavy machinery / marshals are in an exposed position. Less dangerous or modified machinery to be used during vehicle recovery. Any of the above would prevented a similar accident being so serious, be easy to implement, not "spoil the show" and make sense so they have to be considered.

F1 » Button anticipating new track ‘buzz’


Firestorm, Lulu has said he has no intention of leaving Merc as they are "one of the coolest brands in the World" obviously that's important to him. If Dolce&Gabbana start an F1 team maybe he'll have a rethink, man! McLaren have also rubbished claims that Lulu landed at Woking last week to sign a McLaren deal. Lauda however claims that Alonso signed a contract with McLaren last Thursday, not sure how he knows that but that's the latest gossip.

F1 » Bianchi 'critical but stable' after crash


Sunny contrary to some of the replies that some of us have received we have not turned into retards over night. We understand the rule, but understanding something and agreeing with it are two different things. I question how anyone can think moving Sutil's car by a meter can turn an extremely dangerous situation into a perfectly safe situation. As I said a while ago I don't believe the flags had any bearing on the accident, the only reason I'm still arguing the point is down to the unwillingness of some to listen to opinion and the quite frankly rude and unnecessary replies some of us have received for having an opinion.

F1 » Bianchi 'critical but stable' after crash


I'm well aware that having an opinion on this subject is sadly not welcomed from some quarters, I'm sure Rob has noticed that as well fortunately I don't really care if my opinion is welcomed or not, I'll share it regardless. According to Flagmarshal.com double waved yellows means "Great danger. Slow down considerably. Be prepared to suddenly change from the projected racing line, or take other evasive action including stopping if necessary. No overtaking. " But according to Sunny moving the car being recovered 1 meter over an invisible line merits bringing out the green flag "danger over, all clear, continue racing" So moving the car by a meter or perhaps less takes a situation from extremely dangerous to perfectly safe? IF that's the rule it's effing ridiculous.
