F1 » Maldonado facing Renault axe, Magnussen poised to replace


Tomco:In no way can it be said that PM,s GP victory was a fluke. He was pretty much quickest all weekend.
Except in qualifying, where he inherited pole by default as Hamilton was excluded. Pretty quick for one weekend in 76 is not a sign of a quality F1 driver. One in 76 is a fluke. What is not a fluke is the consistency with which he ends up colliding with either other cars or stationary objects.

F1 » Maldonado facing Renault axe, Magnussen poised to replace


Tomco: I have to agree with Richard, PM hasnt been as bad as people make him out to be. The season in which he won his GP he was genuinely fast and since then hasnt had a quick enough car. Hes no Vettel but hes better than many others who have been through F1 in recent years. Pretty sure hes faster than Palmer too.
"Genuinely fast"? Oh please... After he fluked a win at the 2012 Spanish GP he did not garner a single further point for another 10 races! He has a grand total of zero fastest laps and has the record for the most penalties incurred by a driver in a single season in the history of Formula 1. In 2012, when he was apparently "genuinely fast", in which position did he finish the championship? I'll give you a clue: it was somewhere between 14th and 16th. By all objective measures, he is a terrible Formula 1 driver.

F1 » Raikkonen seeks driving clarity after Verstappen clash


So, Kimi, everything's fine then? Reminds me of Robin talking to Ted about her relationship with Barney. If the quotes are accurate, he said 'fine' seven times in the space of two or three paragraphs of speech. I'm thinking it's not 'fine'. Also, if he think's that he doesn't complain, perhaps someone has given him the wrong Finnish interpretation of the English word 'complain'.

F1 » Pirelli close to finalising 2016 testing plans


"There were no dictated pitstops for tire in 2005 and it was a great season...". I think you're wearing rose coloured glasses as the stats completely disagree with you - 2005 was a terrible season! It had the lowest average number of passes per dry GP since 1981! The website cliptheapex has an overtaking analysis that clearly demonstrates that there has been a dramatic increase in overtaking since Pirelli has been supplying tyres to F1. Yes, DRS was introduced the same year as Pirelli tyres, however in 2010 several of the top teams were running F-ducts which produce a similar effect. The average number of passes per dry GP in the last five years of Michelin/Bridgestone tyres was 13.88. The average number of passes per dry GP in the last five years of Pirelli tyres is 47.16. That's more than a three-fold increase for which DRS cannot be completely responsible.

F1 » Pirelli close to finalising 2016 testing plans


@nealio - there's so much wrong with your post I'm really sure where to begin... "instead design tires for each circuit... This would make for safer racing, as the chassis would not be so compromised by needing to accommodate 2 different tires". So instead of having to accommodate two different tyre compounds per race and only four dry compounds across a season, you're suggesting that there be up to 20 different compounds? And that 20 unique compounds is somehow safer than four? "and faster racing as they could focus on speed rather than distance. Build the tires so that the fast compound wears down to a hard super durable compound to protect the carcass from blow-outs". If you make the tyres wear down to a "super durable" state, why would you need to change them? You've just eliminated the need for pit stops. That'd be fun to watch... The whole purpose of requiring the use of two compounds is to permit alternate strategies that lead to on track passing. Return to a single compound a

F1 » What we learned at the Monaco Grand Prix


If crash.net were serious about gender equality and the anti-objectification of women message, perhaps they should stop posting articles titled "Your Sexiest Girl of (insert month here) Revealed!" It's a bit rich to be praising the use of grid boys on one hand and promoting the objectification of women so blatantly with the other. Don't get me wrong, I like grid girls and I accept the point being made about grid boys, I just hate hypocrisy.
