F1 » Lauda casts fresh doubt on New Jersey race


My feelings on the tracks and locations aside, I'm getting a little sick of Niki Lauda shooting it mouth off at every available opportunity. I mean, what does he have to do with the organisers of the New Jersey GP? Of course he's going to be gushing about the opportunity for F1 to return to his home country. I'm with Marksman - there are other tracks that should, and probably would, be scrapped ahead of New Jersey. Before I get flamed, I recognise that Lauda is a legend of the sport. His feats as a driver are amongst the best in racing history. However, in the last few years he just... wont... shut... up... He seems to have to comment about everything and those comments are often outlandish.

F1 » Austrian Grand Prix to return to F1 fold


@Mark - an old track does not automatically equate to a good track. At least Monza has some chicanes and Parabolica - Red Bull Ring is all constant radius turns separated by straights. Similarly, a good race event does not necessarily mean a good track. Monaco is brilliant because of the location, atmosphere and sense of occasion, but the track is rubbish in terms of racing. Don't get me wrong, it's damn impressive watching an F1 car drive Monaco at full tilt, but the race itself is always a procession. I'll not have this Korea bashing, that track has already produced some great racing, particularly in sector 2. Agree completely on Bahrain, however. All I'm saying is that based purely on the layout and not having watched an Austrian GP, it looks like it will be a snooze-fest and I can't see the attraction. Please, feel free to politely explain otherwise.

F1 » Jordan: Red Bull will go for Ricciardo, not Raikkonen


@Mintox - "The experts know who is teh better driver, and they will make thier decision based on that." Hear, hear. Seems to be a pattern with @Richard that he believes he knows better/more than those actually in the sport. I can't see a triple World Constructors Champion team boss screwing up the assessment of which driver out of two in the same machine is better. Christian Horner, in consultation with Franz Tost, has the inside knowledge on this. Richard doesn't.

F1 » Austrian Grand Prix to return to F1 fold


What's with all the love for this track? I became an F1 fan after the last Austrian GP, so I've not seen any races there and I'm just looking at the track layout - it looks so freaking boring! There are only two left turns and the layout is straight, turn, straight, turn, straight, turn... there's no flowing section with a swift change of direction. No thanks...

F1 » Silverstone Young Driver Test times – day two: 18 July


Hey Richard - tell me again how the tyres are... how did you put it... "considerably different"? The below is from the official F1 website - When asked to explain how the revised tyres differed from older-specification rubber, Hulkenberg said his initial impressions were that little had changed. “There’s not a huge difference to be honest," he said. "It’s difficult to filter everything out, but the car feels pretty much the same.” So your knowledge is superior to that of a current F1 driver as well, huh?

F1 » Silverstone Young Driver Test times – day two: 18 July


No, YOU are confusing the issue. Mercedes do not have grip problems, they have degradation/temperature problems. If they had grip problems, how could they perform so well so consistently in qualifying? You don't get pole position if you're lacking grip. Fine mate, whatever, you're right and I'm wrong. The compounds are different and despite the FIA statement to the contrary, Richard's internet based research and comprehensive understanding of cross ply and radial tyre construction proves otherwise. I'll be sure to clarify any future FIA statements with you to determine their technical accuracy.

F1 » Ricciardo pleased with Red Bull 'audition'


Taipan - I'm a Ricciardo fan, but I understand what you're saying. I don't think it's a question of talent, Raikonnen clearly has that is spades, but one of the best business case long term. I posted on another story a hypothesis that Raikonnen may not be there in two or three years' time, whereas Ricciardo likely would be. It may be smarter to contract Ricciardo long term than to get Raikonnen now and then have to look for another driver again in only a couple of years. It may not be the case, but it's a theory.

F1 » Maldonado: I don’t want to go anywhere


"I don't want to go anywhere". That's a reasonable desire, because if he isn't driving for Williams, he wont be driving an F1 car. The combination of Williams and Maldonado winning a GP was pure fluke. I think, and hope, that Williams will win again. I'm certain that it wont be with Maldonado. Geez, Bottas has equalled Maldonado's best result this year and even managed to put the car on P3...
