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.

F1 » Hamilton takes pole at soaked Sepang


I do hope the race is dry. There are many questions to be answered. Is Seb two or three tenths faster than his teammate or not? Don't know, but maybe. Is Lewis on the verge of having a championship year? Maybe. Have to admit he has been very inconsistent and at times mentally fragile over the past few years but he has always been extremely fast. Perhaps this will be his year. Kimi was faster than Alonso for three practices but nipped in qualifying. Where are the two with outright pace in race trim? I am very interested in this battle. So too is Ferrari. How about Perez and Maldonado? New teams, new teammates, and a great deal of posturing from both. I have a feeing both will be dominated by their teammates. And Magnussen? Well, I am a Button fan but i want Kevin to do very well and open the doors for other great young drivers. Am getting tired of the paid drivers and their antics.

F1 » Kate Walker: The sound of a conspiracy


richard, Do not disagree, though Dennis suggested exhaust modifications were possible. I really do not know how, though. I do know the 100 kg weight for fuel is largely moot as it will be unlikely that this will be issue this year, as the efficiencies have been greater than anticipated. So perhaps increased revs can be obtained without increased mass of fuel on board. But the revs are an issue. I wonder if moving away from the 8 gear rule, back to a 7 or 6 might force them to use the full range. I do not know and it is early speculation, but i find qualifying this race easier on the ears than race one. So hopefully we will be accustomed. Unlike others, I support the flow rate meters. I think that having unlimited fuel flow for limited periods will make passing impossible and will encourage coasting on the straights and into the corners. I think we should sit back, watch the first three or four races, and assess the show at that time.
