F1 » Barcelona - F1 test times [Thursday final]

Early days, I know, but the Ferrari really does look to be a fast car over long runs. So my question to the historians is this. If Raikkonen were to win the world championship, would he be the first driver to win two championships with the same team after having taken a break to "retire" or drive for another? Offhand, I cannot think of another. Prost and Lauda returned to win championships but with different teams.

F1 » Hamilton identifies ‘strong’ Ferrari, Red Bull

I expected Renault to improve its engine and allow Red Bull to close the gap a bit for this year. The Ferrari form is very surprising and quite encouraging. I suspect Australia may see Mercedes with a smaller advantage than last year, and a group of three other teams knocking on the door. Wishful thinking, perhaps, but a more competitive season is definitely what F1 needs this year.

F1 » Hamilton identifies ‘strong’ Ferrari, Red Bull

richard: benignly. did you miss my trick question about fangio?
Richard, I think Fangio did return to win a second championship with Maserati, I believe. However, maybe I am missing something.
you were right on that, but i said that he basically did it TWICE. now, you need to know a little about motor racing history to work that one out!
Ah, i will research that one...

F1 » Vettel a ‘carbon copy’ of Schumacher, says Ferrari boss

I understand his desire to offer forth the compliment. However, Seb is coming off a season where he disliked the handling characteristics of a car that found favour with his teammate, who outperformed him by a significant margin. I suspect Seb will rebound this year with a chassis more to his liking. However, I do not believe Michael was ever outperformed by any of his teammates. Ever.

F1 » Ferrari reveals its vision for F1's future

Ferrari could use this design should they wish to enter Indy Car. But F1! I think not. F1 is an open wheel formula and this is its main appeal to me. Also, this design looks like it would dramatically increase down force requiring more horsepower and the increased costs associated with both. I would prefer F1 abandon its 1000 bhp quest and focus on evolving the current turbo V6 to rev higher, produce a little more noise and decrease downforce by 40%. Then they can build more mechanical grip back into the package through widening and improving the tire design.
