F1 » Kaltenborn: F1’s agenda is ‘four or five names’


Why is it that anytime Kaltenborn's qualities as a manager are brought into question, everyone runs to the gender inequality argument? I think she is going to end up putting the team out of business with her questionable decisions. Pretty sure they have 4 contracts for next year. Giedo is most likely going to have a good case if he ends up not getting a drive and I think they will need to buy out Sutil's contract. Not a smart decision unless the money that Nasr and Ericsson is so substantial that they can afford to buy out Sutil and pay back VDG. Also, I'd rather have VDG in my car than Ericsson.

Well I think Alfa...Ron's comment was blatant trolling. I personally don't think she's done a great job but Saubers situation is also pretty desperate or they wouldn't have hired Max Headroom!
Fair enough. I think Sauber and Lotus have put themselves in a bad position with Pay Drivers. Sauber is in worse position with all the contract issues for next year, but I think Lotus went from a team that had a lot of potential (Kimi/Romain) to a joke with Pastor. I think Perez has to be a great pickup because although he brings a lot of money to the table, he can still get some decent results (and getting close to Nico is a pretty good job in itself). It'll be interesting to see what happens to F1 in years to come. Kind of reminds me of MotoGP from 5 years ago when everyone dropped

F1 » F1: Sauber drivers uncertain after Ericsson move


Both drivers have not been impressive at all during the year. Think VDG would be a better option since he can bring cash and is a decent driver and young. Ericsson has been much better than the changed the recovery settings and hopefully will continue to be decent. At the beginning of the season, he was looking very out of place on the F1 grid, but has bounced back.

F1 » VIDEO: Rosberg 'annoyed' with FIA, Hamilton


abi1:
rob01: The week before they send track workers into harms way and this week end they send out the safety car and trap the leader down the order. Not good in either case. i agree with Nico on the safety car.
In Bahrain Lewis had 9 seconds lead on Nico, the SC came out after Maldonaldo's brain fart, all of a Sudden Lewis's 9 sec lead ws wiped out and was on the Harder tyres, Nico was on the faster tires sitting right behind Lewis waitng for the SC to disppear. But once again Nico could nail his oppotunity
That's the issue with normal safety cars. But you keep in similar order. With yesterday's SC, people benefitted by pitting due to location (DR was one), and the leading pack was left out behind. Removing the ability to pit during SC would be the easiest solution.
