F1 » Ricciardo: I think the fans enjoyed Kimi pass


The big difference between the incident between DR and KR and that of FA and NH is that neither car need were impaired by the incident and that DR had not lost control of his car at the time of the incident... That would be the reason why he didn't have a penalty, although it was a close call... Even Derek Warwick suggested it was a difficult call whether or not to penalise for the attempt...

F1 » Hamilton: You rely on the team...


Using ATC as an analogy to describe F1 teams is outright farcical... Yes, they have certain information to hand that the driver doesn't have, but, any good driver is aware of how the car is functioning... I am pretty sure that when you are flying your plane you have a pretty good idea as to what your plane is doing too. As a pilot, you are also in a very different arena, not of a flat plain, but, also different aspects of elevation. Lewis knew he had a few laps left and that his car was capable of finishing the race as it stood, he was also aware he was at Monaco, in the fastest car on the grid...

F1 » Ricciardo onto fourth engine after blow-out


107SS2009: It doesn't take an RBR geniuses to recognise that Renault was a problem to them, but it does take an RBR genius not to admit their design contribution to the Renault problem, and it also takes an RBR arrogant genius to go hang their dirty linen in public. FERRARI might have had the worst engine last year but they also had the best reliability. Penalties set in by the use of any of the fifth component (quantity six) that makes up the power unit,
I do agree that both last season and this season the tight packaging of the RBR hasn't helped the renault engine, but, with regards to airing the dirty laundry surrounding the engine, I suspect it may have been the only way Renault have listened... After Australia, RBR shouted about how bad the PU was and Renault responded with denials... Then suddenly stepped back and admitted their PU was at fault. Sadly throughout F1 history Renault have had an accept it or we leave attitude (and have left F1 on occasions too)... 3 PU's in 4 races is shocking, especially since they initially had only 4 PU's for a 20 race season... Problem now is though, if Renault do pull out, who would RBR turn to?

F1 » Bahrain Grand Prix - Race results


richard:
MrJones85: ...and the same can be said of Vettel when he was in the best car at RB. Another Hamilton detractor who can't give credit when it's due. It's like pulling teeth with you guys. lol
there is a big difference. lulu is in a car that is faster than any of the others. witnessed by nico being usually second. vettel only had a car that was the actual fastest in one of his years. very rarely was webber ever able to show that the car was the fastest. in fact, on at least two of the years, the macca was the fastest but lulu failed to capitalise on it. its not a matter of detracting, but just being factual. of course there will be the usual fanboys who try to find excuses for lulu, but the simple fact is that until ferrari get their extra 25 bhp (expected soon) then the mercs have no real competition.
That could liven up the the season at that point... Seb and Kimi need to try to keep in the higher ranking until then to keep with a sniff of the WDC...

F1 » Bahrain Grand Prix - Race results


MrJones85:
MaddMe: Yet another boring race... The only surprise was Kimi getting 2nd... Lulu on a different planet? I don't think so, just purely in the fastest car

Lulu maybe a better driver than Rosberg, but, giving credit when it is due? all of the credit belongs with the engineers and pit crew. This race is the first one that appeared to show any potential of racing this season and was sadly another that was mind numbingly boring! The only surprise that occurred was Kimi's 2nd place (I expected 3rd), but, had long since turned the racing off by the end.

F1 » Ecclestone: 1000bhp V6 must be affordable


richard:
theeagle: 1000bhp, now that'll be the day! Would be great for F1 not least we might see spectacular blow up's in the beginning with engines that will barely last one race, let along 5 or 6 races.
no problem for the engines! similar engines in the past had no problem with 1200-1400 bhp. and if you factor in the 160 bhp of electrical oomph, then to get 1000 bhp, the actual engine only needs to produce 840 bhp. well within their capability. they could do so now except for the fuelflow regs.
Except the current engines rely far too much of complex systems... A more basic PU will give reliability and a more equally matched across the manufacturers... DRS should be done away with as should the anti blocking rules, that should help to promote proper race craft and the return of close up wheel to wheel action...
