F1 » Opinions divided on Aeroscreen, some prefer Halo

I like it much more than halo, though I'd really prefer neither. Halo would have done nothing to stop Massa's incident with the spring in 2009, whereas Red Bull's screen would have prevented it. However, it was still a freak incident & I think it's silly to engineer solutions to the 1% issues. Nothing on the car would have saved Bianchi and that's why the virtual safety car was introduced. I still believe that this is a solution looking for a problem to solve.

F1 » Vettel: We all said what was going to happen...

Vettel and Rosberg are dead right. I was at the track and it was impossible to follow what was happening. It's far too complicated and the graphics on the big screens couldn't keep up. I had no idea who was out at the end of Q1 except for Harianto. With 2.5 minutes of Q3 to go, the grandstand opposite me was emptying as there were no cars on track. Awful, awful format. I'll watch qualifying again on TV when I get home to try and make sense if it, but right now I think it's an epic fail.

F1 » Adamant Hamilton ‘will not race’ with halo canopy device

I can't help but think that the HALO is a solution looking for a problem. Massa was hit by a spring - given the HALO's position, would it have stopped the spring from hitting his helmet? I don't think it would have. Whether or not it would have helped Bianchi is debatable, but again I expect not. It probably would have helped Wilson, but I don't think his crash is really comparable to F1 given he was on a banked circuit where debris tends to get pushed or deflected back down onto the track. In F1, more often than not there are significant runoff areas, tyre walls, or at worst a jersey barrier and fence on a lower speed corner (Portier, Tabac, etc.). I can't think of any F1 crash that HALO would have helped.

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.
