F1 » What we learned at the Australian Grand Prix

I have just read a comment on another site (I'm not sure if it has been said here) in regard to the fuel flow sensor on Ricciardo's car. The comment said: "The answer as it should always have been would be to fit fuel flow limiting devices to the cars as opposed to fuel flow sensors. Why set a limit and then only monitor it? Use a regulator calibrated to a max of 100kg/h and take away the ambiguity. Simple." Which makes so much more sense than having a sensor. Why then did the FIA decide to have a sensor rather than a limiter?

F1 » Ricciardo excluded from Australian GP

F1 teams, especially Red Bull spend millions upon millions of dollars to race these cars for the best possible result, which means they are very smart. Too smart to make such a silly error which is heavily policed by the F.I.A. As Higdog has mentioned, even if the car did exceed the limit the team will have a way out of it, Red Bull are very good at reading regulations.

F1 » Elated Rosberg still aware of work to do

ThePaddock1: great job for yourself and the team, carry on like that mate and i think you have a very good shot at the championship, you look so fast nico, i think daddy won adalaide in 85 another country your've both won in!
I remember one of the Crash articles before the season that was about how Ecclestone favoured Rosberg for the championship. I know it's only the first race, but he does look in good shape.

F1 » Australian Grand Prix - Qualifying results

ThePaddock1: @ wtf lol @webberton i think you find every driver was fighting the car did ya see hammi lap on board he had opposite lock on at least 3 times massa nearly lost it at high speed but corrected it kvyat couldn't quite get the rear end back round and slid off. every driver was correcting out of corners.
Yes every driver was correcting out of corners, which resulted in lots of replays of drivers going off, including the 2007 world champion. It's just that we aren't used to seeing Vettel having to work so hard with the car, and it was good to see. All I'm saying is that I hope this season doesn't turn into a massive Vettel bashing every time he gets a poor result.

F1 » Australian Grand Prix - Qualifying results

wtf: Hamilton...awesome of the session Vettel...slapping the steering wheel like a baby and shown up when asked to "drive" a car
As much as I like to see Vettel have a bad day, he was obviously frustrated after not qualifying well as any driver on the grid would be. I'm not sure what coverage you watched, but with the Sky on-board of Vettel's qualifying laps on almost every corner he had to correct the car, and he demonstrated excellent car control where others may have spun or gone off. In terms or pace he isn't there yet, however in terms of his driving ability it is standard German perfection.

F1 » Hamilton beats Ricciardo to pole

That was a great qualifying session. I have a feeling this year so many people will be pointing out how Vettel only won because of his car whenever he gets a poor result, but watching Vettel's on-boards during qualifying today showed that he has exceptional car control and it was great to watch. I'm really happy for Ricciardo too, hopefully he gets a good start, and I'm happy for Hamilton as well. I shall now have a look back through this site because I want to read some comments that sounded like "Raikkonen will beat Alonso this year" :) I said it before and I'll say it again, I am 100% confident that Alonso will beat Raikkonen this year.
