F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’


Increasing the sound will be rather impossible with the current rules. The turbo acts as a rather effective muffler and it just can't be scrapped. These engines apparently don't have wastegates. It would seem that the MGU-H would apply a load to slow down the turbo in order to regulate boost pressure and a byproduct would be electrical generation. Dual exhaust would mean TWO turbos would be necessary and probably two MGU-Ks. Two small turbo exhaust pipes would probably be similar in sound to the one big one they're using today. We need to go back to simple internal combustion engines in F1. But the money wasted on these new engines would make the FIA look like the idiots they are. So, it "ain't" gonna happen.

F1 » Kate Walker: Fuel madness


You know what I mean... In the old days it was simply "that guy has a little more speed in the straights, that guy's tires are wearing out, that guys setup is best in the corners, etc..." Now we're saying "Is his battery smoking? Is he saving fuel? Has he lost boost? Is the "K" working? Is the "H" working? Will the FIA pull the "faulty fuel flow sensor card?" "Was that WITH DRS engaged?" Was he using the 'push-to-pass' button?" And on and on. Not to mention the old variables that were hard enough to keep up with. I can't understand what is happening. Someone arrest the FIA!

F1 » Kate Walker: Fuel madness


Oh, my, F1 has become so retarded that I can't watch a race and say "that guy drove a great race." There are too many variables and trickery involved with batteries, fuel controls, cheater wings, push-to-pass boost buttons, and the like. I don't have a clue what's going on during the race. How can we praise our favorite teams and drivers if we can't understand what the f*** happened at a race?

F1 » Vettel eyes 'strong points'


Red Bull can prove they did not exceed the fuel flow limit. Its as simple as showing the telemetry of fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse width. An engineer could explain it over the kitchen table to a housewife and she would be able to understand. Next month we will see Red Bull's points reinstated. And the Red Bull haters will be crying from the rooftops because they are a dastardly and hateful bunch.

F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’


I mean, are we supposed to go to the F1 races and say "Man, did you see how much fuel Nico saved in the last 20 laps?" Or, "I bet there have been only about 75% of the carbon emissions at this years race compared to last years race." WTF is going on with F1? I want to see the real F1 again. The one where they play around at 20,000 RPM and scream like a Banshee!

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion


No need to get scientific about this. The FIA's own fuel flow sensor was not giving legitimate information. So how can they rely on it and punish Red Bull for exceeding the flow rate if the sensor isn't working properly? Any time one of these sensors stop giving reliable info to the FIA, then the car its on should not be punished.

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion


The FIA's sensor was faulty. So the FIA strips a 2nd place completely from Red Bull. Bull****. Looks like its going to be a whole year of the FIA using this sort of thing to prevent Red Bull from winning. They're fed up with Newey and Red Bull consistently bouncing back from rules carefully crafted to hamstring one team. Red Bull. Now they'll get them this way.
