F1 » Mercedes tyre test angers rivals

Taipan. YES. ( quite simply, it was sanctioned ). Richard. Force India and Sauber are not that far behind. I watched their straight line testing at Duxford last week. So in fairness why not use a team that eats rubber during the race. So now it's done and assuming that Mercedes were not able to test new parts ( which in my humble opinion would be unfair ), are the rest of the teams to gain access to technical tyre DATA to benefit from the test. What type of test was it. Straight line. Circuit. Was it a Mercedes test day which Pirelli joined. Was it a Pirelli test which Mercedes were invited to join. Time will tell. But it was not cheating. Any what would they learn from a medioca driver in a Mercedes.

F1 » Mercedes tyre test angers rivals

Just a sense check. Is the problem the selected team or the selected drivers. Taipan. Last years cars are basically this years cars without the tweaks. Richard. The point appears that the FIA did sanction the test. Pirelli must have thought that Mercedes offered a better overall analysis . Maybe to keep it fair they should have tested with Martin Brundle in Sir Moss's bath tub.

F1 » Pole hat-trick for Rosberg as Mercedes storms Monaco

Taipan. Exactly what I said, Albeit in more detail. No one which aspire to their fans expectations always, even if aided considerably, which most if not all top drivers have benefited from at some point. The problem with some posters is the inability to remove themselves from the past and actually express a view based on current levels. Lewis could win the next four championships and some will still find fault. However, this is a forum, and all have the right to an opinion. So what is your opinion based, on this season, of Mr Hamilton ? Free for all to enter, no punching, scratching, biting or low blows. Just a level fact based opinion on this season. It's good to type/talk.

F1 » Hamilton pleased with fightback

Taipan. Did a genie appear and give you three wishes.? Should have been. 1. Great F1 racing. 2. Good health. 3. World peace. Only jesting. 107SS2009. Do you really believe there is a "balance of power" at Mercedes? Race pace has been pretty ebb and flow. Qualifying pace is currently in Nico's favour. I don't see a team is capable of engineering a balance of 0.090 seconds in qualifying. They can engineer race results, as we have witnessed, but first they have to have the cars in the correct positions. I suppose time will tell, as I suppose you may be right. Time will be the teller.
