F1 » Bianchi suffers 'severe head injury' in crash


Yowsa. You make a really good point. Despite hundreds of hours of development being spent making these cars as safe as they can be when they collide with one another, comparatively little is done to reduce the effect of a collision with something other than an f1 car or barrier. I know yellow flags and safety cars are used to help, but the reduced speed has little effect if the collision is with something not designed to be hit by an f1 car. I've no idea what could be done about it though. Best wishes to Jules, fingers crossed for a complete recovery.

F1 » Wolff: Hamilton didn't ignore race engineer


@ ghog, rob, taipan. So does that mean that teams can use this selective broadcasting of radio transmissions as a get out of jail free card in situations like this? Could they just say 'we told the drivers to ignore the last transmission but it was never broadcast'? Or the media could choose not to broadcast those messages to artificially create a little controversy? I'm not suggesting that this is the case but I can see why people are peed off!!

F1 » Wolff: Hamilton didn't ignore race engineer


Who cares? If a team implements team orders such as these and the drivers obey them people will complain that f1 is boring. That it's scripted. That drivers can only race when their mummies tell them. If a driver ignores them, then people complain about that too! Last year, many people had Seb Vettel pegged as the antichrist when all he did was overtake his slower team mate! It was a great race, I loved it. F1 wouldn't be the same without Monza.

F1 » Wolff: Hamilton didn't ignore race engineer


@107ss2009. Good point. I didn't think about that. I guess most of my point still stands though. It's frustrating to hear a radio message along the lines of 'look after your tires, attack at the end' when the racing further back was as good as it was. With Mercedes having such a dominant package this year it'd be great to see the wdc decided like that rather than 30 laps of them driving line astern followed by a little bit of racing at the end.

F1 » Rosberg capitalises on more Hamilton woes


Polyccio: Apparently, Hamilton is paying for his mechanics to go to college so they can learn how to operate a wheel-gun. What's the point going a tenth or two faster per lap then handing back those precious seconds every time he stops? Beyond incompetent IMO.
I've heard the same rumour. Apparently it's a P.E. class so that they can relocate faster when Hamilton misses his marks. Again.

F1 » Newey critical of new F1


I understand the need for F1 as a whole to become more environmentally efficient. The whole world is changing and if F1 needs to make changes to stay relevant then I support that. I just don't think that these particular changes are for the best. F1 is still a sport and the whole point of a sport,for me at least, is a little bit of escapism. To have something to look forward to at the end of a bad week at work or simply when things aren't going my way. I'd always look forward to the race on Sunday to cheer me up or make me happy. It doesn't need to be relevant to road cars, or use less than x amount of fuel per race, or save the lives of 57 endangered flower species to do that. I just want to see the best drivers in the world, in the fastest cars in the world, going toe to toe. And I don't want them to sound like my rusty Clio!!

F1 » Ecclestone warns quieter F1 could be costly


No road car should ever sound better than an f1 car. Now most do. Even my little Clio is louder. Admittedly the exhaust has fallen off, but still! That said, I really enjoyed the race Sunday, and I'll certainly be tuning in for the rest of the season. I'm sure I'll get used to it, but I've never had the chance to actually go to a race and experience the sound trackside so maybe I'm not missing it as much as most.
