F1 » Rosberg disciplined by Mercedes


here4thesun2: cont'd -- Since Rosberg was to Hammi's outside, at best, Hammi had a truncated racing line and needed to take an abbreviated right-hand corner to hit the apex of the next left-hand corner. Rosberg had THE racing line. But was on the outside, so he could not turn in order to clip the apex of the inside of the right-hander. When they took their right-handers, Hammi did not line up with his new apex or the traditional apex to setup for the next corner, but lined up with a point that would drive Rosberg off the track if Rosberg continued to follow alongside throughout the cornering sequence. Hammi drove from the inside of the straight over THE racing line in order to cut Rosberg off, then turned right to straighten his car. At that point the impact happened because Hammi was in the wrong lane. The collision would not have happened if Hammi left room and stayed in his racing lane.
Agree with you completely. They are the facts. People will have their own opinion and are free to do so. But let's remember this is allegedly racing. The stewards deemed it a racing incident with no penalty required. Mercedes and LH should have the professionalism to respect that decision and move on. Penalising NR is a ridiculous afterthought by his employers, as they have on numerous occasions reassured us the two drivers are free to race each other. Isn't that what they're paid to do after all? NR was fully entitled to be where he was, LH realised he was going to be passed, changed his line to squeeze NR who chose not to back out and on this occasion LH came off second best. Could easily have been NR. Hence why a decision of racing incident and no action. LH & Merc need to wise up if they are to retain any respect from F1 fans. Deal with the issues on the track, not in the media with another childish slanging match.

F1 » Hamilton: I gave it all I could - fairly


Happily I didn't waste anytime watching what would have been an even duller procession than normal. Interesting that what everybody's talking about is the spat between the Merc boys. LH got a little something in his eye.........right.......and then his team-mate 'cheated' in qualifying. Actually Lewis, you were out-qualified and lost the race to a better driver in the same car. Grow up. Your petulant tantrums are almost as dull as the 'sport' you participate. Yet another reason why you'll never be one of the greats if F1.

F1 » Hamilton secures third win in a row


Cryonbrian: Hamilton reminds me of Senna. Unbelievable talent!
Comparing Hamilton to Senna is ridiculous. Senna was a phenomenon, who sadly died early in what would have been a stellar career, and was a true racer in an era where F1 was actually racing,rather than the techno-procession we've been subjected to in increasing amounts over the last 10 years. LH wouldn't have been anywhere near the pointy end in that company.

F1 » Hamilton secures third win in a row


So as I predicted........Polesitter vanishes into distance and is never threatened, most overtakes occur in the pits, and Bernie and his F1 buddies deliver another turgid display of processional dullness. Happily I spent the morning out mountain biking - and spent a mere 2 seconds checking the result on my return. Which is about all the time this tedious sport now deserves. F1 should take a long hard look at itself and wake up to the fact that it is, without doubt, the most boring Motorsport now on the planet. Look back 20 years and watch some real racing. No doubt the LH fanboys will be crowing about his genius. Average driver in best car = win. His world title was gifted to him by other people failing. He delivered nothing in an average car. He'll never be one of the greats. And WHAT is going on with his accent......??

How about you guys stfu and let others who enjoy racing continue to watch and enjoy the sport? No one was complaining when Vette
I think you'll find I was equally critical of the sport when Vettel was winning, probably more so. Enjoy racing - if this is what you call racing I'll leave you to it. BSB anyone?

F1 » Hamilton sets British record with pole


Hey ho. Here we go again. Another tedious procession of overpaid egotists trundling round a track with pole man vanishing into the distance untroubled by the challenge of an overtake or two over the entire race. Unless you count somebody going past in the pits during a tyre change. 'The pinnacle of racing'???? Give me a break. This used to be a real sport with real talent. It's been ruined. I can't remember the last time I saw a 'race' in F1.
