F1 » Maldonado admits uncertainty as Renault talks drag on

Ahh... just as I said a few weeks ago! Lotus only confirmed him so his status as a named / contracted driver & his associated financial backing could be entered as a Company "asset" along with the tools, spares etc. Renault will surely start with a "clean sheet" and decide whether they want to keep this "spare part" on the inventory, or throw it out & get something better! His Lotus contract could well be null & void quite soon!

F1 » Button returning to scene of 2014 success

NINJADUCK: So what's the big deal. ageing boxers go for one last big money fight, there are a lot of older footballers that change clubs chasing the money(MLS league springs to mind), Ageing Motogp stars head to perceived top teams in world superbikes for glory and recognition & money rather than retire . if Button has convinced them he's worth it one last time then fair play to him.
Yes, but Button's hardly going to go out in a blaze of glory driving for McLaren,is he? (More like the car will erupt into flames at some point, and he'll walk back to the pits with scorch-marks on his bum!)

F1 » Jenson Button to stay at McLaren-Honda

I think it has worked for both sides.... it has been said that Button is a big asset as regards marketing/ attracting sponsors etc which is an area they are wanting to improve.. the inference being that 2 "unknown" rookies (or grumpy FA + 1 rookie), driving would only push the team further down the plug-hole. There is already one new sponsor on board, and maybe some more have been "bagged" on the basis that JB is staying-on. JB obviously wanted to stay in F1... other options (at this time) probably not too appealing or even available yet. For sure he knows what changes are being made/upgrades on the way and he knows (now) he can demand improvements with an air of authority & respect. Poor old FA can only scream over the radio!

F1 » Mercedes intrigued by potential Manor gains in 2016

ThePaddock1: It would be great to see them strive forward next season especially for the drivers, Being at the back getting lapped 2 or 3 times a race being 5-6 seconds a lap down must be boring always checking the mirrors for the front runners and looking at the marshals for blue flags.. No team in F1 should be getting lapped after all its supposed to be the pinnacle of motorsports!!
You're sounding like Seb Vettel when he was at RBR.. complaining about the poor tailenders (Caterham/Marussia). Seriously though, you're right! even Minardi were (mostly) on the same lap as the rest in their later years ...Maybe Alonso has a point... being 2/3 laps down is an embarrassment!

F1 » Mercedes to approach Ecclestone over lack of TV time

bazza1: When I first heard this I thought it was a joke. I thought the coverage was good due to the producer showing parts of the race where racing was taking place. Who would want to see number 44 driving around an F1 track on his own. I Think Mercs are being a bit unreasonable there.
Spot-on! I don't think it was a "trainee" in the studio.. in fact it probably was the producer's choice to show the little action that there was! After all, his job is to try to make interesting viewing for US - not be an advert for Mercedes... it's clear from the posts that it was a bit dull, so the poor chap/lady did his/her best, I think!
