F1 » Worst of 2015: VW's F1 aspirations go up in CO2


nealio: Funny story. Supposedly, in negotiations with VW for an engine supply Red Bull demanded engine parity with the VW World Rally Team and when VW demurred they slagged VW's software technology among other things which perked up the regulators ears! Hahaha just joking!
5 disagrees! Sometimes I wonder if the denizens of this forum actually have a sense of humour at all. (There was a tiny clue in the last line!)

F1 » FIA confirms refuelling could return to F1


107SS2009: Of course anyone can post on here and anyone can watch whatever races they want, in my book it spells "everybodyandhisdog", but when there is no control on brains/mouth and the sudden urge to say something just for the sake of saying something logic escapes control that leads others minds to boggles at the idiocy being uttered about max fuel flow/max fuel load when the actual subject under desiccation was supposed to be the introduction of refuelling. .
........and what a dry subject it is. (Sorry)

F1 » Rosberg 'can't say whether he is underestimated'


Several commenters on this thread have suggested that Rosberg isn't really up there with the best. Can't help agreeing with that and the reason seems to be made pretty clear by the man himself in the interview. Seems he feels that his results over Schumacher were easier to come by because it was less intense, because they were only squabbling over minor placings. And this year, his brief show of dominance over Hamilton came about only after the championship (for him) had been lost. Seems he can only perform at his best when it doesn't really matter. In short, he lacks the killer instinct that marks the true champion. That instinct that makes real champions give it everything they have, whether fighting for 1st place or 10th. In short, errr whether it matters or not doesn't matter. The intensity should be there anyway.

F1 » Wolff: Mercedes could loosen reins to enliven F1


Is this the same Toto Wolff who said only a couple of months ago that if drivers were left to make their own strategy decisions they would get it wrong every time? Can't help wondering if F1 might be a bit more interesting if pit-to-car comms was limited to pit boards as in days of yore. Keep the car-to-pit radio so we can all hear the drivers' explanations for their strategy decisions. One can but dream.........

F1 » Worst of 2015: Three into two doesn’t go at Sauber


"van der Garde had a number of bodies to climb over to reach his goal, and resorted to legal action, casting an unnecessary cloud over Albert Park" Errrr, even if this issue did cast any clouds over Albert Park, surely those clouds were cast by Sauber, not van der Garde. After all, what did he do other than prove in a court of law that he was right. He did in fact have a legally binding contract with Sauber that they chose not to honour. And I seem to recall him accepting at the time that it was almost certainly going to mark his CV with a big red cross making it unlikely that he would ever again sit in an F1 car. It was obviously important to him to make it publicly clear that he had been cheated by Sauber and was not the pretender they painted him to be. Dunno how the rest of the world feels, but I for one reckon his actions were perfectly justifiable. After all, he was merely making it clear that just because multi-million pound companies are able to steamroller the dreams and

F1 » BBC explains reasons for dropping F1 coverage


SoSlo: this has much less to do with BBC than it does with F1 (and other sports) are structured for licensing the house of cards is starting to fall apart
.....and it has less to do with that than it does with Dave screwing with the BBC's finances, ostensibly for the sake of "austerity" but in truth because of his ideological belief that anything worth money must be handed over to his peers, ex-schoolmates & pals to help build the all-powerful profit-making corporate machine which exists only to screw the rest of us. In truth, the house of cards is fit and well......

F1 » Channel 4 to televise F1 as BBC cancels contract


mrfill:
janhein: there really is no way to watch f1 live on the internet? anybody? please?
Yes. Pay for a Sky subscription. Then pay extra for sport channels. Then pay extra for high definition. Then you get Sky Go for nothing and you can watch on the internet. A mere £61.50/month. Kerching.... Alternatively, NowTV for £10.99 a weekend. Both 100% legal
If you look hard enough you will find free websites that stream most terrestrial stations, including foreign stations which show F1 live. Coupled with Radio 5's commentary it's a tolerable way of watching - but for me now, too much trouble. F1 no longer seems to justify the effort.
