F1 » Alonso: F1 in danger of becoming a lottery


...who can say with complete certainty that the best driver has at any or all times won a particular race or the F1 championship, no one can with certainty! If you want an F1 championship where you can be almost certain that the best driver in any given year wins the championship then you must turn it into a one make series where all the cars are prepared for each race by a single supplier, drivers are then assigned a car from that pool randomly for each race, no setup allowed by the driver’s team, pitstops to be completed at certain intervals within a pit window with timed stops with cars stationary for a predetermined period to eliminate gaining any advantage during stops. Is that the sort of F1 you want, no thank you not for me, I’ll stick with what weve got and enjoy the uncertainty - tyres, teams, drivers and all!

F1 » Alonso: F1 in danger of becoming a lottery


F1 is a team sport that starts at the development stage of the car, it then includes the investors and sponsors who provide the money, all those that work at the main factory and it’s subcontractors to produce the complete car, then you have the team at the track who run the cars, the strategists and the decision makers, the tyre and fuel suppliers and of course the driver. Every one in that chain has to perform to a certain level to get the driver on to the top step of the podium. Throw into that mix a certain number of variables such as weather, the odd bit of bad or good luck, tyre degradation and you have a racing series that people love or hate, talk about and even rant and argue but ultimately you have entertainment. It is not a given that the best driver will win a particular race or indeed the championship, but usually the best combination of all of the above will be in with a shout at the end of the season...

F1 » Ecclestone: 'Kinetic energy thing' caused Williams fire


Ptolomy, yes Williams do run the flywheel KERS, Williams have in fact set up a subsidiary company 'Williams Hybrid Power' to further develop the system and sell it on. Their system is currently used by Audi in the R18 Etron Hybrid LMP1 car , also Porsche are using the Williams system in their GT3 R Hybrid Race Car where it apparently is able to provides an extra 163bhp. WHP have also been contracted to develop a system for buses. Also there are reports that the sytem could find it's way into all roadgoing 911's. All that sort of makes the technology extremely relevant and something that F1 and it's followers should be proud of instead of rubishing it.
