F1 » The new F1 starting regulations explained

Honeybadger: Wow! The 'best' drivers in the world have now been given the challenge of finding a clutch bite point. 17 year olds all over the country will be relieved they can pull away from a junction just like an F1 'star'. The desperation to make this dull fiasco of a sport is highlighted by ridiculous ideas like this. Remove the radios, get rid of KERS, ditch DRS, return to fuel stops and F1 MAY have a future.
I agree with ditching DRS... Refuelling did nothing for F1 other than take the racing away from the circuit... During the period of refuelling there was less overtaking on circuit... DRS does nothing more than give the car behind an advantage, making the overtake much easier to carry out, however, every driver has ERS and as such, it becomes much more tactical as to when the drivers use it in the course of a lap. Making the drivers use their clutch at the start should start to make the starts much more interesting and start to show who the better drivers out there are....

F1 » Mercedes worried Red Bull engine deal 'strengthens' rivals

Venture: If Red Bull had an engine as good as the Mercedes unit would they be happy to have it supplied to someone as well funded as themselves, I think not. Only last week Horner stated that even if Renault purchased its own team he still expected Renault to still treat Red Bull as it's priority team.
In the interests of accuracy, what he actually said was that Renault are contractually obliged to treat Red Bull as its priority team... The difference being that being under contract, Renault could be (and probably would be) sued under the breach of said contract...

FE » Villeneuve to compete in Formula E

theeagle: Nico Rosberg should be getting that seat. Formula-E is a club for F1 failures and those that have fallen by the wayside. No disrespect at all to Nico but like all other sons of ex-F1 champs (i.e Piquet Jr) - that where they go cos thats what theyre really suitable for.
Although not considered a great driver, Damon Hill gained a WDC (and should have had 2), son of double WDC Graham Hill...

F1 » POLL: Who’s been your F1 driver of the season so far?

CryingWind: When Vettel was in a dominant car only lulu was able to beat him to pole or win races in a less dominant car. Hamilton is better than Vettel. Period.
Hamilton was the only one to beat Vettel? Really? 2010 WDC - Vettel. 2nd Alonso. 4th Hamilton. 2011 WDC - Vettel. 2nd Button. 5th Hamilton. 2012 WDC - Vettel. 2nd Alonso. 4th Hamilton. 2013 WDC - Vettel. 2nd Alonso. 4th Hamilton... Looks to me that others managed to beat Vettel and Hamilton...

F1 » POLL: Who’s been your F1 driver of the season so far?

Without a doubt Hamilton is far from the best driver on the grid... He perhaps is better than Rosberg, but, only marginally... The way he reacted over his own error at Monaco (he asked the team for the pit stop) and then again how he failed to make a clean overtake at Hungary (as I have said before, most drivers didn't challenge him and let him pass) hitting Massa pretty hard and then slamming into the side of Ricardo. This to me proves that when he is under pressure, he fails to deliver... Rosberg has been mediocre at best this season, whether due to team orders (all be them secret) or not... Vettel is showing that he really does have some racing talent and has tracked along quite nicely sitting with a possibility of the championship, assuming that Ferrari can get their act together suitably for the second half of the season.... Worthy mentions are Bottas, Alonso and Button (they're showing genuine spirit even though they would probably go faster if they pushed), Kvyat and Verstappen... My choice is also Vettel...

F1 » Hembery: Pirelli won’t stay in F1 at any cost

mrfill: Perceptions that a non-technical viewer might have of F1.... a) Mercedes make fantastic cars b) Renault make terrible engines c) Pirelli make tyres that fall apart quickly All inaccurate but not surprising.
Not really that far out with those perceptions, except... Mercedes do make good engines. Renault are terrible. Pirelli make good tyres that have a comparatively short lifespan (when compared to other tyres in the same price bracket)...
