F1 » Rosberg admits Hamilton deserved win


Lulu deserved to beat Nico today, Nico has to dig deeper if he wants this championship. He had the measure of Lulu during qualifying and for the first half of the race then seemed to give up the fight after Lulu passed him, maybe he had a problem I don't know. I found the BBC commentary amusing (as usual) greatest pass in history apparently, one of the bravest most memorable moves ever and it was "round the outside" Funny I seen it as a DRS pass on a straight and it was complete before the corner, can you go round the outside on a straight?

F1 » Bianchi suffers 'severe head injury' in crash


Fullofit: Maybe this will force a rethink on the type of equipment used and / or how it could be used with less danger, but something needs to be done to enforce they existing system that's in place. .
Agreed, I think possibly modifying current equipment could be the answer. no real need for having 3 feet of ground clearance and protrusions all over the place which create unnecessary risk , I'm sure alterations could be made to make the recovery vehicles safer in the event of an accident yet retain 95% of their capability.

F1 » Bianchi suffers 'severe head injury' in crash


Fullofit, I do agree with you re. flags but the first 10 or so laps were deemed so dangerous that a safety car had to control the pace, not double waved yellows yet when a real risk was introduced (a tractor) in similar conditions double yellows were seen as suitable, I don't really get that. I've lost count how many times I've damaged myself just getting in and out of construction plant, they are almost designed to be damaging and the thought of any racing car coming into contact with one at any speed is scary. I think it's a risk that could be avoided without spoiling the racing too much. And well done to Crash for removing the agree/disagree button today, nice move.

Welshie, I don't think you're being insensitive. it's a fair point you make. But we know racing drivers they will push the limits, but what speed would they have to be doing in wet conditions on worn tyres to make an immediate stop, probably about 30mph and the issue with JCB's and the like is that even colliding with one at 10mph could cause major trouble, by their very design they are very unforgiving things.

F1 » Bianchi suffers 'severe head injury' in crash


I'm not a fan of knee jerk reactions and rule changes after an accident but I have to agree with the guys questioning the sense in having heavy plant on an active race track. Yes I know motor racing is dangerous and it says so on the tickets but it gets a lot more dangerous when a 5 or 6 tonne lump of steel is introduced to proceedings. Anyway the main thing is Jules' condition and the news is he's come through his operation and breathing unaided which is great news.
