F1 » Hamilton beats the rain… then crashes in it

benignlyindifferent: No rain forecast for Saturday or Sunday. wonder why Mercedes was out on rain tires at all. Seems like an unnecessary risk.
They wanted data on the their clutch bite settings with both Nico and Lewis going out on the inters, but the rain increased while they were out on the inters which turned the track into a full wet condition which left Lewis aquaplaning. Mercedes decision to send both drivers out.
Thanks, that makes sense.

F1 » Alonso not frustrated, but not happy looking like amateur

I can understand how Honda still lacks pace. After all, the others have had an additional season to learn and develop their engines. But Honda had an additional year to at least make theirs reliable and yet I cannot remember any of the other manufactures having this many problems this far into their first seasons with the new power plant. Set aside Alonso's frustrations and perhaps growing desire to leave the team, I wonder how long Honda can continue with these problems before the board begins to question their return to the sport.

F1 » Alonso not frustrated, but not happy looking like amateur

richard: benignly. no.... honda have not had an additional year. they did not signify interest until 3 years after the others had said they were going to run the new pu. and even at the endo of 2014, the pu had not even run, let alone being tested in a mule. honda are at least a year behind everyone else. mind you, they are still having problems in their first year running, that the others did not have in their first year of running. but they will get there!
Richard, You are correct, I am just frustrated. So too is EB and his post race comments suggest the tensions that must be building within the team. I really do hope they come good but their departure from the sport last time left a sour taste for me.

F1 » Canadian Grand Prix – Qualifying results

benignlyindifferent: Raikkonen is only six tenths off pole on a horsepower track. Ferrari is definitely closing the horsepower race. Does anyone know how the respective long run pace was for the Mercedes, Ferrari, Williams and Lotus packages?
that is the closest that kimi has got to the mercs, so i wonder what seb could have done. pity about his mgu-h. i woud expect that all going well, seb could be up to around 4th tomorrow. but from the comments by brundle and co, the ferrari has very good race pace, handling and easy on tyres, so there could well be a surprise tomorrow.
Thanks, Richard. Seb likely has the qualifying advantage but Kimi did seem more comfortable than at any other time this year. A longshot but he could surprise. And yes, watching Seb come through the field might be the most entertainment we see tomorrow. Let's hope not.
