F1 » Hamilton: Results haven’t reflected actual pace

I doubt Nico has a contract which says he plays second fiddle to Lewis. Mercedes doesnt have to give Lewis Numero uno status since they can win with any driver right now. Lewis wasnt able to do much for Mclaren after 2008. It is all about the car in modern F1. Ignoring what nikki lauda, mercedes top brass say my personal feel is that Nico just needs one or two race wins. If he beats Lewis in Monza which is the fastest track of the season, Lewis isnt that invincible anymore. Mindgames in F1 are always on. NEVER SETTLED. The past is ignored. Only the latest result matters.

F1 » Vettel defends Ferrari after Pirelli ‘risk’ claim

This is my own guess. Pirelli stated 40 laps for a normal track. Spa is a longer track with 25% to 30 % more lap time (almost 2 mins). So in Hungary this tire would have lasted 45 laps if it was the same surface as spa probably. To be exact pirelli have to publish the speed rating , distance , track condition mapping. (If it is a high speed track then the tire can only last 150 kms , if it is a low speed track it will last 200 kms etc, abrasive track etc ). But for that they will need to test extensively. But then you are not even allowed to discuss testing. ssshhh they are trying to reduce costs. Even if someone dies from tire malfunction they will still stick to no testing. I will bet on it.

F1 » Vettel defends Ferrari after Pirelli ‘risk’ claim

nikki lauda doesnt want the current status quo disturbed since the fear of tires is one of the things that is helping mercedes. If they remove that Ferrari have two fearless drivers who will go hammer and tongs - running each lap like a qualifying lap and they are also kind on tires. The end of junk tires will play into ferrari's hands. Hamilton wont be able to do 75 % of the laps which vettel / raikkonen can do on the same equipment without burning tires since he is much harder on the tires.

F1 » Rosberg: I can win title despite qualifying shortfall

couple of good races and anything is possible. It is all about the equipment. In SPA he was on backfoot with the tire blowout. next race in monza will need to be his hunting ground provided the ****elli tires dont give up. During most years championship battle has been drawn to a close at the last race and I expect this year to be no different. Nico winning will be good for the sport too.

F1 » Arrivabene unconcerned by lacklustre Ferrari pace in Spa


csmith: They need to change many folks in kimis side of garage starting with his race engineer first. Kimis current race engineer isnt upto ferrari standards Else one car will break down in practice or qual or race every other wk.
i am gobsmacked at most of your comments. and how do you know that kimis race engineer is not up to standard? i would imagine that ferrari know better

F1 » Pirelli blames Ferrari, dismisses Rosberg incident link

A tire past its run life can reduce in performance step by step but it cannot shred. That is non sense from pirelli especially after they themselves said it can last 40 laps. The driver is not goin to push the tires if it doesnt respond. Imagine Kimi in 2012 in a race where he was fighting for podium position and then lost many positions in the last lap. That is acceptable rather than putting driver at risk I would say pirelli pack up ,go back to factory and create tires which satisfy some basic safety expectations.

F1 » Red Bull waiting on Renault for answers

If renault buy lotus and supply engines to force india thereby giving off redbull to mercedes it will be an even deal. Considering that lotus is anyways gonna close shop soon and doesnt have 30 million to pay mercedes each year. It takes only peanut size brains to figure it out. For the super smart folks who question others comments there is always bernie's seat waiting for you.

csmith: keep waiting my friends. renault was double dipped and fried by red bull during first half of year. All set and done renault have way more money than red bull and triggering their ego has yielded the expected result (renault ignoring redbull / charting its own path )
For those that seems incapable to dig deep into a formula one matter at hand before making up their minds and committing to comments. Less than two months ago Mercedes were adamant and saying “supplying PU’S to RBR will never happen”. And later “as it is there are still contracts
