MotoGP » Espargaro: We are really f**ked in that aspect!


bringBACKthe990s: I was under the impression that satellite teams at least started the season on equal footing. And simply didnt get updates as fast as the factory boys.
The satellite bikes at the start of the season are generally what the factory teams were using at the end of the previous season. The only manufacturer who goes against this is Honda, who lease works bikes to satellite teams, but give updates a few races behind the Repsol bikes.

F1 » Manor pass FIA crash tests with updated 2014 car


Rumour has it, that the Albert Park circuit will have an extra chicane this year. Well done to Manor for getting back on the grid though. But, you have to wonder what the medium to long-term plans are for the team? Even if their 2015 car makes it to the grid by the euro season, they still not going to end up any higher than dead last in the constructors championship.

F1 » McLaren ends testing with 32 laps-a-day average


Moi: I don't understand why teams (at least big ones like McLaren) don't have full car dyno's (not just engine) to perform extensive testing of the complete systems weeks or months before hitting the track.
Before leaving, this is exactly what Ross Brawn implemented at Mercedes, hence why they were able to hit the ground running last season. Honda and Mclaren keep saying that they're only experiencing the same issues that teams had last year, but that is no excuse whatsoever. Honda have had a year of hindsight and should have followed Mercs lead and Mclaren have had a year of running the Mercedes. Their reliability has been appalling and simply not good enough, whatever way you dress it up.

F1 » The future of F1: HAVE YOUR SAY


The problem with F1 isn't the product, but how the product is marketed and promoted to the younger generation. I'm a science school teacher and the number of young people actually interested in F1 is depressingly low and generally confined to the 'geeks'. When you consider the technology, speed, money and glamour that goes into F1, it's crazy to see just large the percentage of young people is that haven't got the foggiest clue about F1. It's utterly disgraceful the distain that F1 has for social media and alternative ways of engaging the younger generation and making is accessible to them. Instead, they continue to give an elitist stance, relying on an ever ageing hardcore population of fans, who are willing to pay out extortionate prices for tickets and/or pay TV channels. The power-brokers of F1 do not seem to be interested in investing in the future of the sport. Instead, they seem to be content to sit in their ivory towers, ignorant to the fact of an every decreasing audience....

F1 » Renault seeking ‘at least five wins’ in F1 2015


Hi richard, what official FIA outputs are you quoting from to get a figure of 880bhp? Please post them, so I can see for myself. I can only assume that you quoting power figures from 2001. Yes, none of the V8s broke the 800bhp barrier. You only need to use common sense to work that out. Somers and Scarbs have not said anywhere catagorically that Mercs advantage is electrical. If they have, please point me in the right direction. It is widely known that Mercs powertrain advantage is largely mechanical, as they're the only ones using a split-turbo arrangement, which allows them to use a bigger compressor without incurring excessive intake charge temps and also reducing pressure loss.

F1 » Renault seeking ‘at least five wins’ in F1 2015


richard: for goodness sake! do some research! the mercs advantage is in their pu. the collection and rapid release of electrical energy! and yes, in the v8s, the merc gave 880 bhp, the ferrari 850 bhp and the renault 800-820 bhp! you mightnt like it, but those are simple facts.
Finally, despite V8 engine development being frozen, Mercedes and Ferrari still managed to up their power output by developing the engine ancilliaries, which was legal, but not in the spirit of the regs. Renault followed the rules to the letter and fell behind, but were then allowed dispensation to modify their engine to close the gap. At the end of the V8 era, the Merc still had a power advantage, but it was thought to be only around 20bhp at the most, which the Renault clawed back in low and mid-range torque. This punch suited the Red Bull perfectly, as their car was amazing in low and mid-speed corners due to their exhaust blown diffuser technology, which Vettel was able to
