F1 » Arrivabene teasing contract to spur Raikkonen on


I have liked Maurizio Arrivabene's approach to leading Ferrari. Until now. It is on the record that you want Kimi to raise his game. Understood. But are you now going to continue to reference this fact in public through the season? Can we expect the Ferrari board to issue public statements that Arrivabene's continued leadership of the F1 team rests with success? Of course not, though we know this to be true. I think reminders to Kimi would be best delivered in a manner that is a bit more respectful, as we all know the nature of F1.

F1 » Lewis Hamilton ‘inspired’ by BTCC racer brother


Agreed. Provided the race officials can determine that a driver handicap (physical or ability) is not an increased risk to others, I think their participation is great. I see Zanardi has another GT project whack will pair him with two others. The engineering challenge to create a vehicle that fits everyone's needs is challenging and quite entertaining.

F1 » Stevens happy with Manor-Marussia progress


I know many that post here often are overly critical of the small teams at the back of the grid, but they are important. They make up the grid and they develop drivers. Imagine what a Manor could do with a Torro Rosso budget? Proper distribution of revenues and an alliance with a major team would solve these woes. So instead of proposing three cars, instead the FIA should address the revenues and then allow each of the big manufactures to closely align with a smaller team while still requiring them to build their own chassis.

F1 » Hamilton: Only team-mate can provide ‘true race’


Hamilton is stating the obvious, but I wish I knew the context for this quote. Is he posturing to have Alonso join him next year for a true comparison? Or is he hinting that a move to Ferrari is not out of the question so he could pair with Seb? It seems he wants to be compared to another great. I am beginning to think the final details of his contract will stretch out longer than planned as he reconsiders his options. I would like to see Hamilton, Alonso, and or Vettel paired at some point in competitive cars.

F1 » Hamilton: Only team-mate can provide ‘true race’

benignlyindifferent: While I am not in favour of three cars, that scenario would be great to see. Reminds me of the Penske days with Fittipaldi, Unser Jr. and Tracy.
I had to use the old google machine to find out more about that as I'm not too hot on Indy Car knowledge. it looks remarkably similar to the MP4/4 no doubt thanks to the Marlboro livery. That's not a bad thing though! Is Indy car worth following then? i always thought of it as a poor-mans F1 which I know is a very ignorant viewpoint.
Indycar was excellent back in its day. The cars were beasts and the drivers top rate. Paul Tracy had a tryout with Benneton when Schumacher was with the team and he ran extremely good times, closer than any of Michael's teammates. Paul was offered a mega contract but it conflicted with his Penske contract and it was not to be. Once the split occurred Indycar was never the same.

Imagine if teams had to adopt 3 cars for F1 to continue! Would love to see a mega team of Lewis, Fernando and Sebastian. Would be a very interesting team battle!
