F1 » Manor hoping to build on Sepang lessons in China


Very pleased to see them pressing-on. So many on this board suggested they were only making the minimum effort in order to collect last year's winnings. If the rumors are true, then shame on BE and the FIA for beating them up. I guess the powers-that-BE will not be happy until there are three teams running six cars each. One with a mandatory woman-driver, of course. Good luck Manor F1. My new favorite Minardi-like underdogs!

F1 » Rosberg explains Hamilton criticism


Even Toto came as close as possible to admitting that LH's slow down was not only deliberate but put the team's best0interest at risk. ""It could have come to a point today where we would have been very firm on the radio, saying this is what needs to be done in order not to risk the race result," Wolff said. "He [Hamilton] didn't do anything wrong, but we were close to having the call that the pace needs to go up now. It could come to a situation, where if we see that we are risking the win against Ferrari, that we might do an unpopular call. We wouldn't freeze [the race] or anything like this, but it could be a situation when we need to manage them more." - TW LH has always put the "me" in TEAM.

F1 » Raikkonen ‘struggling’ despite reduced gap to Mercedes


This sort of highlights the downside (for lack of a better term) to having a driver like Alonso on the team. He can drive anything, grabs it by the throat and just gets the most out of it. Most teams seem to naturally gravitate towards building a car for the driver who scores more often. Now that he has left, the team has refocused on making a car that works...for a "normal" driver. Ha! Not surprisingly, this will will give both drivers a better chance to do well. Ferrari said that they had spent all Winter getting the front of the car to work for Kimi. That's probably the best way for a team to work...although watching Alonso extract so much from a less-than-perfect car is also quite entertaining. I think that we will see both Ferrari's challenging for regular podiums this year and that's never a bad thing.
