F1 » Caterham F1 negotiations ‘annoyingly slow’


Taz:
ProfessorX:
Taz: Annoyingly slow....a bit like the F1 cars they produced!
faster down the straight than Ferrari, and if they had WIlliam's Merc units, they probably could have beaten half the teams.
:rolleyes:
To be fair Taz he's right, IF they had a better engine, better aero package, better chassis, better drivers, better designers, better engineers, better sponsors.... lets cut a long story short IF they had been a better bloody team they might have beaten someone!! :p

F1 » Rosberg sends Hamilton cheeky birthday message


jim.wall.7758: nico- lewis has many years of driving to championships left in him...age is not always a factor: Oldest drivers to win a Grand Prix: Luigi Fagioli, France 1951, 53 years & 22 days *shared drive Nino Farina, Germany 1953, 46 years & 276 days Juan Manuel Fangio, Germany 1957, 46 years & 41 days
You do realise they were all in the 1950's don't you? things have changed just a bit.

F1 » Alonso ‘more adaptive’ than Raikkonen – Fry


ProfessorX: confidence can be your undoing taipan. Some times when you rely on pushing confidence in place of real value, you eventually miss the mark, and fall off a cliff. You might want to ask McLaren and Ferrari how well their respective efforts have been.
Nothing to do with confidence or cliffs PCX, everything to do with you talking nonsense, again. Don't sign a World Champion if you want someone who delivers was your message, so lets put that into a context that you might comprehend.... Mercedes wanted someone who would deliver, so did they make a mistake signing Lulu? he was a former World Champion after all. Don't think too hard now.

F1 » Alonso ‘more adaptive’ than Raikkonen – Fry


ProfessorX: I think you will notice that the last two people Ferrari have hired are former world champions. I think that says a lot about the guys on top being ultra conservative and appealing to people's perceptions rather than really looking for someone who can deliver.
So if you want someone to deliver don't sign a World Champion, that's the advice from Professor Plum! You really are troubled PCX.

F1 » Five F1 champions who wouldn’t have made their debuts


Not only would Schumacher not have qualified under the points system for his debut he also wouldn't have qualified for his return in 2010, as former F1 drivers have to have driven in 5 GP's in the previous season or 15 GP's in the previous 3 seasons. All in all I think the new rule is a decent idea, even the drivers mentioned in the article would mostly have only needed another season in the lower formulas to qualify and that's no bad thing. It's expected that new drivers spend their first year in F1 learning to be an F1 driver but they shouldn't be learning how to be a racing driver, they should be accomplished racers long before joining an F1 grid.
