F1 » FIA clarifies F1 team radio restrictions


I don't know if that's going to work (remind the team orders ban in 2002 and the order were still used in different manners during the years) but I'm excited by the idea that engineers won't help drivers about which settings to use on different parts of the race. It raises the possibility for drivers to get it wrong from time to time, to make human errors, for F1 to become a bit more human. The drivers are very professional and they can use free practice to set their style about the race but with all of those details they need to focus, making a little mistake in their settings is not out of question. I hope it works that way and teams don't try to cheat about this because then F1 will have a lot of trobles, scandals etc.

F1 » FIA clarifies F1 team radio restrictions


@Strider I think also that the teams will find something to do about it. As professor X said, people try to break the rules if there are a lot of benefits and just a few risks. Imagine a X driver who is beign catched up by an Y driver just because he's using the wrong settings. If the engineer informs him and the X goes to win the race I don't think a simpe fine of 10000 $ can do the job. The FIA should be more draconian to enforce the rules, as the courtrooms should be in everyday life. A possibility would be disqualifying from the race the X driver. I knows that's harsh but in this way they will discourage the drivers/teams to try to get around the rules. Anyway let's see how this going to work, at the moment I am a bit sceptic.

F1 » FIA confirms 2015 F1 calendar


@Carpenter You mentioned 4 European circuits, which I would love to have them on F1 as well, but there would not be many spot left for races in other continents. Also Europe is the heartland of F1, the sport itself is global. I'm disapointed to have Abu Dhabi as the season end but as Boufiewolf said I hope that there won't be another double-point in 2015 and beyond. @Minardigras From 2016 and on there will be an American team on the grid, maybe Haas and Ferrari can attract more americans toward F1 in the near future. Also Mexicans are very passionate about F1, so expect to see many of them on both Austin and off course Mexico city.

F1 » Ricciardo: Fifth best we could do


We must get used to Ricciardo doing little miracles at every race. After the first lap he was 12th and at the end of the race, well he finished ahead of his team-mate, again. I did expected a great recovery by Bottas but watching a Renault-powered car making all of these overtakes at Monza?! This guy is really special, maybe the best driver on the current grid with the current cars/regulations. Vettel's struggle in this era is more serious that I thought. Ok, he did a great start and kept at bay the McLarens, Perez and others while his strategy wasn't the best. But when you watch Ricciardo you think the car has more to offer and Vettel delivers just in qualifying. He already changed the chassis twice this year. Maybe is the Pirelli rubber?! Maybe the brakes by wire?! I don't know. Meanwhile I am enjoying the great drives of Ricciardo at every weekend and hopefully next year he can challenge Lewis and Nico at every race.

F1 » Alonso sorry for Tifosi after ERS failure


I am a fan of Alonso but frankly I am reliefed that he retired today. Watching him behind the McLarens and Force Indias all race long, unable to overtake, fighting for a mere 8th or 9th, at Monza, no, it was better to end it half race long. I got used to watch Alonso (also Raikkonen) to make great recoveries, in the style that Ricciardo is doing it now but the F14T is a terrible car. This was a bad day for the Tifosi.

F1 » Alonso ‘was completely at the limit’


@areyoutalkingjibber I agree that we some fantastic drivers at the moment with Alonso being the cherry on the cake. But it is difficult to compare drivers from different eras. Something we know is that back then the cars were harder to race, much more unreliable and unpredictable. Many drivers lost their lifes. It was in the early 90s that the drivers lost control of their cars, with traction control, launch control, abs, active suspension ect and the cars were easier to drive. Most of this features were banned, reintroduced and then banned again. Schumacher won titles racing cars with and without traction control, and he was awesome in both eras. There's no reason to say that today drivers can't race (and I mean RACE) the F1 cars of 70s or 80s. After all the 2014 cars looks harder to drive than those of 2006/2007 or 2013 but still drivers manages to get supreme control on them (just look Ricciardo at Spa, to his credit) but there are still away to the madness of pre 90s. So credit to

F1 » Alonso ‘was completely at the limit’


Posting identical lap times in Q2 and Q3 shows he was on the limit and mistake-free. If he manages to keep his usual consistency I believe that he can improve on his starting position. The McLarens ahead of him aren't unbeatable, but the Red Bulls behind him are also a threat. And there were a few surprises in the last 5-6 GPs, some unexpeced results, so this trend might continue.
