F1 » Horner lauds ‘top drawer’ Ricciardo after run to fourth


F1isaFraud:You've taken that quote out of context - I said i am sure i was better myself AND I WASN'T EVEN TOP 10. ie. - it's not about me - it's about what an invalid talent selection filtering process occurs in motorsport - with personal finances being 90% of the filter - resulting in the F1 that is promoted as the worlds best drivers is nothing of the sort - it's the world's best FUNDED drivers.
I took that quote entirely within context. You could have made your point quite well without any comparison between yourself (an internet commentator) and Ricciardo (a driver for the reigning world champions in the premier category of motor sport). For what it's worth, I agree with your main point that money takes some drivers too far (Maldonado is case in point) - but that does not mean you are not chowing down on some mighty sour grapes.

F1 » Horner lauds ‘top drawer’ Ricciardo after run to fourth


F1isaFraud: yes he thrashed Webber but Webber was even more mediocre in Australian karts than Riccardo - Webber was absolutely USELESS in karts - not even in australia top 100 whereas Riccardo was at least OK - maybe top 50) - unfortunately then the only logical conclusion is that the F1 field is FULL of silver-spoons kids
Have you ever paused to consider that perhaps karts and F1 are not the same? You may have had some good arguments to make, but you have lost all of your credibility through attacking other posters (mostly on other threads), making exaggerations to back your claims and talking yourself up. Not that popularity is the test of truth, but I think there is some wisdom in in a group - check out your agree to disagree ratio.

F1 » Maldonado penalised for Gutierrez clash


Words fail to describe how infuriating it is to see the difference in penalties between a driver stupidly causing an actual crash that is quite serious and a team error where that the driver has nothing to do with it and no harm is caused. How the hell does the former, where a bloke gets sent to hospital, get only a five place penalty and the latter, where there is little to no danger and certainly no actual crash, a 10 place penalty? Sort it out, FIA. This is absolutely outragous.

F1 » Ricciardo happy to be ‘close’ to podium return


F1isaFraud - if your moniker is what representative of what you think of F1, why are you on an an F1 news website wasting your (and our, for that matter) time making comments? Paddock and Yes both made relevant and good points and all you have done is blow in from nowhere and get aggressive. Dude, go away if you don't like F1. You can also just go away if you want to continue making comments in that fashion.

F1 » Sutil: I don’t even have a water bottle…


This is appalling. Driving without a way to remain hydrated over 1.5 hours in the dry desert heat of Bahrain is nothing short of dangerous. Not to mention the long term effects on the drivers. Forget consensus from the drivers, the FIA needs to grow a pair and up the minimum weight by 20kg on safety grounds. Or, how about a driver minimum weight? Those drivers that don't make the minimum must carry ballast in the cockpit or seat. That way there's no point dropping weight out of the driver himself because it will still end up in the car.

F1 » Sutil: I don’t even have a water bottle…


Benignlyindifferent - I doubt you would see an overweight driver in modern Formula 1 even if they could make it down to the minimum car weight. The demands on the body are such that anyone short of professional athlete fitness is going to be uncompetitive as a driver half way through the race due to exhaustion. Not to mention they wouldn't fit into the cockpit (Ricciardo struggled to fit and he's no couch potato). My concern with simply upping the minimum car weight is that teams may use that additional weight in the car and continue to require the drivers to stay light. Having a minimum driver weight allows taller drivers to maintain their ideal body shape and shorter drivers are not disadvantaged with seat ballast to make weight. At the moment, taller drivers are clearly disadvantaged.

F1 » Boullier locking Magnussen in a room


That testing stat that Boullier quotes at the end of the article is pretty frightening. Whilst there are feeder series such as GP2, GP3 and WSBR, nothing is quite like a Formula 1 car and the comparative absence of pre season milage seems to be asking for trouble. It's a credit to the current stock of rookies that they're doing as well as they are given their age and (lack of) experience in F1.

F1 » What we learned at the Malaysian Grand Prix


Regarding the need for fuel flow sensors being safety - "...the risk of cars travelling at vastly different speeds with one on 50kg/h and another on 150kg/h was greatly reduced." What, like when cars where flying past Raikkonen when he had a flat tyre on Sunday - that kind of speed differential? Or the kind of speed differential between Kovalainen's Lotus and Webber's Red Bull at Valencia in 2010? Think about which one of those two examples ended in a very serious crash and you may come to the conclusion that fuel flow regulation has very little, if anything, to do with safety. F1 races will often witness a car limp around the track to get back to the pits under race conditions. Pick a cause - broken front wing, flat tyre, busted suspension, gearbox problem, it's a 2014 Lotus... Seldom (actually, I can't recall an example in modern F1) does it end in catastrophe.
