F1 » Hamilton from Verstappen in Monaco FP1


richard: whaaatt? lulu proves his worth by beating who? max verstappen? big WOW ! and remember, its only practice.
I think he may have beaten some others as well. However, he managed to do this on his 2015 salary so he has not 'proved his worth' and cannot until 2016. Next year he should be expected to be at least a couple of places ahead of where is he now to justify any increase.

F1 » New deal respects Hamilton’s market value, says Wolff


Trento:
Darkh0rse: Not forgetting that also the market value of gold will go up now when he starts wrapping more goldey lookin chains round his neck
Provided a good laugh. I'm not a fan of Hamilton but admit he's a good driver. But would they really have to pay him that much to win in a car that isthe fastest car out there. I would think that Hulkenberg or Bottas could still win in that car for about 30 mil less. If you ask these guys, they all say they race for the love of it, but would they decline racing if that sort of money wasn't available?
If a Merc seat was available and the pay was only 1m a year, the queue would go a long way...

F1 » New deal respects Hamilton’s market value, says Wolff


IE22: There are young boys all around the world who live in poverty and hardship and have no chance in hell of getting into racing because of the costs who if you put into a race car and developed the right way would destroy Hamilton on a mental level during a season
Ahhhh... young boys .... in the park ...... jumpers for chicanes ...... I can see you don't drive round Stevenage much.

F1 » HAVE YOUR SAY: F1’s proposed rule changes


GPdB: WATCH MOTOGP! MOTOGP passing is a great example where F1 is lacking. This F1 problem is all due to restrictive aero rules that result in loss of downforce following other cars. Allow unlimited active front and rear DRS and bigger wings, or full ground effects to mitigate this problem.
I do watch motoGP and I have noticed that the vehicles have only 2 wheels. They are also one quarter the width of an F1 car. This has an enormous effect on passing. Yes, F1 could follow motogp and reduce the number of wheels and the width, to improve overtaking (and reduce cost...). There may be some complaints from fans though

F1 » HAVE YOUR SAY: F1’s proposed rule changes


GPdB: F1 needs to promote much closer racing, and allow car to car contact. Look how good the MOTOGP races are! Allow close contact rough racing below 240kph by bodywork preventing direct tire to tire contact Require tough flexible outer body pieces to allow contact without damage They should be tested by the FIA with a hammer for toughness MOTOGP has closer racing with so much less protection Protect the driver with a canopy! 4WD! Allow front wheels to recover and store energy, and unlimited MJ energy store to go beyond 1000 HP. Less kg of polluting fuel! 18" wheels are slower due to greater un-sprung mass and rotational inertia, unless in-wheel motors are allowed to recover much more energy than now. Reduce costs for small teams that bring in the new talent! Expensive parts should be made available to small teams at reduced costs from big teams.
Have you considered a career in comedy?

F1 » McLaren keen to make up for Spanish flop


107SS2009:
CrazyHorse23: Point taken, it will still take a lot of luck for either drivers to qualify high enough given they're both better on race day than a Saturday. I still feel Alonso might just sneak into the points though, with as you say a bit of help from strategy and other's misfortune. Canada will be a totally different matter...they had better find some extra horses quickly!
I have no doubt that the horses are there (in the stables) their problem is getting the horses out of their stables.
Perhaps this is the problem. They have bolted the stable door before the horse bolted..... :)
