F1 » Hamilton resigned to strategy limitations


ZeFrenchAngle: Yes Mercedes should give first pitting choice to the guy in the lead when the strategy is still the same, but they should then allow the guy behind to vary his pit stop strategy on the fly ! Otherwise it is pointless saying "we are letting them race" and then shackling them like this.
They're not being shackled in the slightest. 99.9% of the time the leading driver gets first stop and whatever strategy they are put on is going to be the best possible strategy available. All teams have operated this way for decades. If the second driver wanted a different strategy it would have to be a compromised ie poorer strategy, imagine the whining if they did that. You can't have the lead driver being put on the best strategy and the second driver being put on an even better one, there is only one best strategy. The problem here is, even with DRS, Lulu and Nico can't work out how to overtake each other and that has nothing to do with strategy.

F1 » Hamilton resigned to strategy limitations


richard:
ProfessorX: this is only true if the conditions are the same (car/environment/tires) w/ both cars and the drivers are the same and so is the setup. I don't think I would be caught dead trying to make that proposition rich, it has more holes in it than a lot of the stuff the FIA calls rules.
you dont get it? the cars are the same. f the strategies are the same, then the better driver should win. that is what a race is.
You missed the "environmental" differences Richard, God knows what they could be, was global warming getting in Lulu's way?

MrJones 85: This is so stupid and you guys are still arguing about this stuff. Whomever gets pole position in F1 usually wins the race.
If that was true it's strange that of the drivers who have more than a handful of poles very few convert more than 60% of those poles into wins. In fact the list is so short I'll give you it - Alonso, Button, Vettel, Fittipaldi and Ascari. Most and I mean the vast majority convert less than 50% of poles to wins. Quiz time (a bloody simple one) what current driver has a 100% pole and win ratio?
