F1 » 'Raw' Webber considering quitting?


Quote from Seb in 2011. "“You need to understand that we have so many people off the track, especially in Milton Keynes, in the factory, working day-in, day-out, every day of the week, every month of the year, really trying to make two very competitive race cars,” explained Seb in the official FIA post race press conference. “It’s not just one person or one area where things need to come together, it’s everything. Obviously for us, the drivers, the most important championship is the Drivers’ Championship but for the team, it’s the other way round, it’s the Constructors’, to know where they match-up against the other teams.”

F1 » 'Raw' Webber considering quitting?


Totally ignorant of the sport are the Webber bashers. The constructors title is far more important to a team than the world championship. The restrictions placed on the number of engines per year has forced all teams to slow down when position in the race are fairly static. The Red Bull drivers have always been free to race each other until the final pitstops are complete. It has been the RULE IN THE TEAM for several seasons that after the final pitstop they are not to race each other. It was agreed to by both drivers for dozens of races until today. So Seb has put his ego ahead of what is best for the TEAM. The Telemetry showed that Webber was faster than Seb in that race when pure speed with no restrictions was allowed. Seb must have been proud to beat a bloke who had just tuned his engine down to produce about 80BHP less.

F1 » Heavy rain forces qualifying postponement


Still the armchair jockeys question the experts who decided it was too dangerous. I think all of the cars automatically raise themselves 5 to 10MM when setup for the rain tyres. This helps to prevent aquaplaning when normal rain is encountered. BUt nothin will prevent aquaplaning when you have standing water on the track. You have a large flat surface (the bottom of the car) meeting standing water. That is physics and has nothing to do with the ability of the rain tyres which are already removing 60 litres per second and are not wide enough to remove the water in the middle of the car.

F1 » Heavy rain forces qualifying postponement


There was standing water on the track that I could see from my position. All drivers interviewed supported the postponement due to standing water. It is not the strength of the rain but the drainage that determines how safe a track is. Albert Park is a public road, its drainage is not as good as purpose built tracks and it has far less runoff on many corners. It is not just the aquaplaning of the tyres that are of concern but also the flat floorpans of the cars skimming across standing water. Believe it or not, the stewards and the driver representatives actually know more about safety and car racing than you guys ever will. I hope that hasn't dented your little egos too much. P.S. We had also just had ten days in a row where the air temp was above 32 degrees Celsius and the track surface over 60 degrees. Like any public road in the world, the grip levels of the surface are compromised for the first couple of days of rain after a long hot spell. The rain had the effect of making the tr

V8 » Casey Stoner speaks after impressive V8 debut


Johnsons has never watched V8 Supercars. If he did he would know that an idiot who slowed down on the racing line during a qualifying session would have a few car panels deliberately dented by the other drivers as well as an angry confrontation in the pits. And if he thinks that a punch thrown from the back of a motorcycle through padded gloves into padded leather is dangerous then he must have thought the idiocy that angered Stoner was nothing short of catastrophic.

V8 » Casey Stoner makes V8 Supercar debut


He was 8th after second practice and just under 0.7 from the leader. That is more than impressive. That is unbelievable. Good to see a friend of my brother, Geoff Emery, ended up 4th. He is in the 2012 car of Craig Lowndes whilst Stoner is in the 2010 car. As Stoner said throughout his bike career, he was in it for the thrill of racing, not the championships. He is now going bumper to bumper with some of the most aggressive drivers on the planet and I have never seen him grin so much. I think V8 Supercars will be his home for the next 20 years.

V8 » PIC: Casey Stoner unveils V8 Supercar


Just watched his first practice session. He has never driven the car there. Never watched a race there. It is a street circuit with no runoff. He is 9th fastest on debut. I predict he will be in the top 5 after the next practice. His team mates, the two fastest drivers in V8 Supercars, have stated he was as fast as them at the private practice sessions.
