F1 » Newey critical of new F1

Newey does not design engines, he just makes them fit into the package. Anything that makes total power performance more unpredictable is a concern to him. I agree with him, but i suspect he would be singing a different song if he had a Mercedes in the back. An aside, I am concerned that the power plants are becoming so sophisticated that only a few manufacturers will be willing to take the chance to compete in F1.

F1 » Rosberg takes pole after Hamilton error

Mercedes is mighty, but not quite as mighty as last race. The gap, while considerable, is no longer 1.5 seconds. With night running and varying rates of tire degradation it might be a little closer at the front, and if one or two of the drivers on row two and three are able to jump the Mercedes at the start, proceedings could be entertaining. I am very interested in the inner team battles. Button is quicker than Kevin, even though he is not known as a qualifying master. Bottas is up on Massa. Kimi out qualified Alonso by a considerable gap, and Ricciardo will start only two places behind Seb, despite his ten place penalty. I am hoping the Mercedes do not run away and hide. If they do not, we may have an entertaining race.

F1 » Sutil: I don’t even have a water bottle…

We do not want overweight drivers. This is not Nascar. However, it is an issue this year primarily because of the new regulations and drivers are being asked to account unnecessarily for poor regulation planning. go figure. Easily solved with an increase in car and driver combined weight by 10 kilos, allowing the small drivers to still find an advantage through the careful positioning of ballast. You see this in karting all the time and it works well, and it has for F1 in the past.

F1 » The Bulls are coming – Hamilton

I was just reading an older copy of F1 magazine, in which Hamilton's decision to leave McLaren for Mercedes was called into question. Would he win again? The big "risk" is looking like a great career move these days. Goes to show that drivers take big gambles when changing teams. Sometimes it works out like Hamilton, Schumacher, and a few others, and sometimes not. Villeneuve, for instance.
