F1 » Wolff sorry to let Hamilton down


ProfessorX:
MikeP: It is possible that Lewis "normally" runs more rear brake bias? Maybe he likes an over-steery car? That would fit his style me thinks. Whatever the case, the apology is preemptive to keep LH from freaking out, again. Management 101 from Toto.
If you think Lewis would have rather taken a DNF vs shifting his BBAL, you are most certainly wrong.....
Huh? What are you talking about? I said that LH may "normally" run more rear brake. That would account for him using them up faster. Even if they were aware at the same time, it would be too late as his were already worn more. Relax.

F1 » Rosberg takes positives from extending lead


Oldnail: Where is Lauda and Toto's public apology to Hami for delivering a pile of crap for the 2nd time in only 7 races??. ......
Pile of crap? Ha! I guess that makes Nico's drive a "champion's drive". Amazing that at least one of their drivers could manage to lead pretty much the whole race and finish in second with a "pile of crap". Ha! Oh wait, it is probably just because it is so hard to pass in Canada....oops, that excuse doesn't work, does it? Maybe a quick poll of all of the drivers that finished behind that "pile of crap" is in order to see in any of them might be interested in slumming it in the Mercedes? Ha! Well, I am just sure it is a conspiracy of some kind and the whole paddock is in on it, right? Right? Who's with me?! Ha!

F1 » Wolff sorry to let Hamilton down


In my opinion, Lewis has always been hard on his cars. Mechanical empathy is something he just does not seem to have. This is where I rate Alonso so much higher. Both of these drivers are quick. Both can really "wring the neck" of a racecar and maybe drive it above it's "weight" but Alonso also has that true driver-skill of sympathy to the car. If they added like 10 laps to every race and took the radio out of the cars, Lewis would rarely finish....so says me.

F1 » Perez hits back at Smedley


It is a little tiresome to see the mandatory "someone is guilty". It is racing. They are both at fault. Perez is not a "new guy". His style is well-known. Massa had followed him, should have seen the line he was driving, knows the Mexican's history and then chose a better spot to pass. Perez should have known that Massa was going to get him and done the smart thing and maximized his points by finishing instead of a move that took them both out. Fast drivers with different strategies. Laps winding down. This is called racing for goodness sake. Unless the stewards saw something really nefarious in the telemetry, they should have let it go...in my opinion

F1 » Perez hits back at Smedley


Timetraveller:
sprulz: All I can say is that Williams and FI are likely to be at each other's throats until the end of the season. While I don't believe it's fully Perez's fault, the team did pull quite a stunt so I guess the stewards were right in penalizing them somewhat, although this is rather harsh IMO. Massa was driving like a madman in the closing stages so I guess both are at fault in the end. It should've just been classified as a racing incident. SFI are in a war of words on all forms of social media and it's looking rather unprofessional to me. I hope they regroup and everyone forgets this and instead battle it out on the track.
Certainly agree that it should have been classified as a 'racing incident'. Unfortunately F1 has entered the age of 'blame culture' and someone has to be punished. The pinnacle of motor sport is on a very slippery one way downwards slope.
