F1 » Raikkonen urges for a faster, more ‘dangerous’ F1

I suspect Kimi is not really longing for an era where more drivers are seriously injured and killed, and neither am I. I am a big fan of the sport and remember the losses of Villeneuve, de Angelis, and Senna well, just as I remember the loss Wheldon and Moore. Nothing about the sport that led to each of these losses made the sport more entertaining, just more tragic. I do believe Kimi and others long for an era where the cars were quicker and demanded more of the driver and when the consequences were high and unforgiving. And I do too. If you put a wheel wrong, ride a curb, or run too wide the consequences should be more severe and crashing should be a real possibility. Monaco is a "safe" track but the consequences are high. Just ask Verstappen, and thankfully we can because the crash cell and barrier did its job.

F1 » Renault F1 future to hinge on Mercedes leniency?

benignlyindifferent: Again, Horner appoints himself as Renault spokesman, despite the Renault brass meeting directly with Bernie and others a few weeks ago to ensure their position was accurately stated. At that time they stated they wanted to clear up the inaccuracies begin reported by people who were not spokespeople for Renault. Horner should be quiet.
come on! you are better than that! read the story...horner is just saying what renault have already declared publicly.
True. I am blinded by my increasing dislike for the man. I will take a deep breath next time.

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.
