F1 » Ainslie tabs Newey for Americas Cup assault


You would have thought that for a designer like Newey F1 would be the ultimate challenge. But with rules being so tight, loop holes being closed as soon as they're found and laws against any kind of design freedom you can understand why a guy like him has become bored of it. How long will it be before the engine development freeze makes the top engineers look elsewhere to challenge their skills? Sad.

F1 » Massa insists win was possible


JJJ: Well they could have won for sure, but then they botched the first stop, made an unnecessary 2nd stop while in the lead on tyres that according to Pirelli could run from Montreal to Vancouver,
Triple J, Massa himself said the second stop was necessary as his rears were shot and he would have been very slow at the end if he had stayed on them. Nice to hear a driver say the team got the strategy right, rather than pretend that the team gimped him......

F1 » Renault inspired by Ricciardo breakthrough


Richard, I think it was Button, he was told to press a left button once and a right button 13 times to reset something. Lot of buttons in that sentence! I had to phone a Fiat dealership once to reset the immobiliser on an old girlfriends Punto, it was a bizarre list of instructions, press the clutch 6 times, the accelerator 9 times, switch on the lights etc, I though the guy was taking the piss but to my amazement it worked!

F1 » Perez hits back at Smedley


rob01: go to thejudge13 dot com. they use some lines that help you see the actual movement between the cars. i am fine with any opinion on this wreck as it isn't something either driver wanted to happen.
Thanks for that link, It shows quite clearly just how far to the left Perez moved (not that there was ever any doubt of that) but Massa did move fractionally to the right for some unknown reason. Their poll on driver of the day was also interesting, 2.5% said Chilton!

F1 » Caterham sells stake in Alpine sportscar venture


Taz: @DM52 All Renault customers should be demanding a discount for the crap engines they've been delivered.
There was a story/rumour a week or two ago that went further than that, Red Bull were allegedly considering claiming Renault for loss of earnings. I find it hard to believe that could have been possible as I can't imagine engines come with a success guarantee but who knows.
