F1 » Hamilton talks ‘Aeroscreen’, says risk is his choice

ThePaddock1: This was once back in the day a proper proper mans sport everyone knew it was dangerous and that was the thrill that the drivers lived off.. And the fans loved it.... Theses days its just a bunch of fairy's out for a drive in the park thanks to Bernie and co.
Paddy I don't think you remember the pre Jacky Stewart era (and it's a bit before my time too) but having a few drivers killed every year just because safety was an expensive inconvenience wasn't thrilling or lovable. I'm all for the cars being more challenging to drive but safety should be paramount. It's a sport at the end of the day, deaths just don't make it better in my opinion.

F1 » PICS: Red Bull to run 'aeroscreen' in Russian GP FP1

richard: cars would have to be redesigned if this becomes the norm. airflow over the top of the car will be deflected upwards and over the airbox inlet. this will negate the ram air effect and cause extra strain on the engine as it now has to suck. ok, there is a turbo, but this requires to be fed with air at a pressure rather than a possible vacuum.
Agreed. I prefer it to the halo but neither is a particularly elegant design in my opinion.

F1 » Hamilton remains the benchmark – Rosberg

Snakecharmer: I thought the Williams FW 14B did a pretty good job of dominance in 1992, oh and the FW15 in 1993, and don't even get me started about the Ferrari / Schumacher years,
I agree the FW14B was totally dominant, for a season. was the FW15 dominant? Hill managed third in the championship with it and Senna in a McLaren Ford won 5 races so no it wasn't dominant it was very good with an exceptional driver in Prost. The Schumacher Ferrari years? Rubens finished 4th in the championship twice with the Ferrari, McLaren won 7 races in 2000, Kimi and Montoya were close to winning in 2003, so again a very good car but an exceptional driver. Take any statistic you want no car has dominated for a 40+ race period like the Mercedes.

richard: ty. are you finding it practically impossible to post? i nearly always get an error logo. even tried to email the site and its parent company, all come up as errors? guess this is why there are so few comments these days.
It's been ok in the last hour Richard but the last couple of days I was getting the error message or it was taking forever to load pages.
