F1 » Mercedes dominant as Sauber, Manor skip FP1


lol Sunny, migrating birds? I have to agree though, I started following f1 in 1988 and never even thought about stopping. Last year I also binge-watched everything from 1976(when I was born) until today. Even if I am currently mostly an Alonso fan, I am positive I will still enjoy the sport thoroughly this year. I did notice a huge increase of Hamilton Fans(one eyed or not) on crash since last year. A lot of them seem to also be completely new to the sport. It is a shame that many of them seem to be on the same mental level as their hero which makes it difficult to have a grown up discussion/debate :P

F1 » Mercedes dominant as Sauber, Manor skip FP1


Madscientist16180: Tks a lot the site you suggest work just fine. No more waiting for torrents to come out or having to watch my local coverage! And to say that i just changed my channel selection to have the local feed today! lol Who are the race analyst on sky? I was watching BBC coverage through torrents before they switched to Sky, is it mostly the same team?
You're welcome, glad I could help! Croft and Brundle commenting on race day, Coulthard and Jordan stayed at BBC. Humphrey left to comment on football I think. Herbert and D. Hill joined the sky team. Ted Kravitz running around doing his usual thing. It's a good team overall, especially Brundle imho.

F1 » The future of F1: HAVE YOUR SAY


cont. Maybe everyone wearing a transponder and they all need to move behind a line for the counter to start, except for the guy holding the stop/go sign, he can't make it green unless the 5 seconds are up. Decrease ticket prices and remove 'pay per view' if it is economically possible, which I think it is. Lastly, I am probably in the minority but I also dislike the current qualifying format. I much more loved it when we had Friday and Saturday open practice/qualifying where you counted everyone's fastest laps during those two days. Then Sunday morning warm-up before the race.

F1 » The future of F1: HAVE YOUR SAY


First of all, as many others have said or implied, F1 cars should be the fastest cars we can build. That's what drew me into the sport, that nothing can beat an f1 car. Instead of having so many aero restrictions to remove advantages/disadvantages between teams, FIA could come up with a standard nose, front wing and rear wing that all teams HAVE to use. This should help costs and FIA can make the cars less aerodynamic so you can easier follow the car in front closely. And no more need for DRS. Remove the fuel flow limitations and allow refuelling again. Perhaps it is possible to come up with a way to enforce an extra 5 seconds to the pit stops after all pit crew stops working on the car, and the counter will reset if anyone touches the car. Not sure how to do this technically but it should make pit stops a lot safer.

F1 » Button: McLaren car, Honda engine feel as one


@Sunny You are correct, although racing speed does not mean pushing the cars to the maximum going flat out these days. With the fuel flow regulations, rpm limitations and the teams limited amount of PU's over the season you want to find a balance between speed, reliability, fuel economy and PU life span. All teams are trying to figure out how to run in order to score as much points you can over the entire coming season. The only team that completed a full race distance in one run was Mercedes I think? Finishing the race gives points, fastest laps do not. Regarding McL Honda, we still have no idea where they are, does anyone really believe that they are 10-20 seconds behind over one lap? That's ridiculous. All the teams had major issues to sort out last year during the tests before they could crank it up and push for the max. We had cars on fire even, remember? Give Honda some time to get things running smooth first.

F1 » McLaren-Honda concludes day early


Tomco:

Tomco: Very embarrassing so far. Looks like they would have been better keeping their old Merc engines or as we all know now, bought some Ferrari motors. At this moment one has to feel sorry for Alonso.
Why feel sorry for him - he's still getting his millions whatever happens.
Blimey, thats the most disagrees Ive ever had. What did I say ?
Is that a serious question? I disagreed because you are talking about money when it is the championship that matters most. The reason he left Ferrari was to get a better shot at the WC. So if it turns out that Mc Honda isn't competitive this year, I would feel sorry for him. But it is a long way to go until the first race and it is but their first year, they are doing better than what many teams did last year so far.
