F1 » It’s good to talk... or is it?


As much as Alonso himself might not be as honest as want him to be , to me he is the most honest guy between himself ron and boullier Ron. Leader of espionage act and fined 100 millionplus recently told us honda is way ahead of schedule. Eric boullier. Kimi has been paid every penny upto last race. He said this few times and we all know lotus had not paid kimi a dime at that point Alonso. Helped ferrari against mclaren during spygate etc but atleast hadnt been that big of a liar. He might play games and is shady but better than the other two

F1 » Sauber against fifth engine for ‘specific team wishes’


They got lucky with this year's ferrari engine and now we got to hear her crap every now and then. And her novice drivers are still learning how to even take a simple corner in malaysia without beaching in the gravel. The 1 2 2 driver fiasco was a legal quagmire that they dragged themselves into. Im pretty sure their two paid drivers will ruin the race for many folks this year. F1 needs some stringent driver rules. Like a team can only add one novice driver at a time and that too if he drives poorly for first five races or causes more than 3 incidents Stewards should give enough penalties so that they booted. This will ensure the paid drivers are packed up as soon as possible if they are no good. Saves the lives of other drivers as well.

F1 » Ecclestone on European races: Whatever goes, goes


The situation is very simple. Folks with money are investing and creating new tracks in new countries. They are ready to pay huge money to Bernie since Formula1 is a novel sport in those regions and folks pay a premium to watch it. In Europe F1 has been going on for ages and currently not many folks are ready to shell out hundreds of euros for a ticket. But this excitement about f1 in the new countries will only last 2 to 3 years. I remember going to US GP in 2012 and in 2013. 2013 did not have the crowd of 2012. 2014 was worse than 2013 I don't know what is good for sport. But Im not in favor of removing Monza / Spa from F1 and adding Tilkedromes. The worst Tilkedrome is Abu Dhabi where there is no overtaking ever possible. The Billion Dollar cycling track i would say.

F1 » Maximum effort yields ‘maximum result’ for Raikkonen


Both the saubers ruined his race. Both of them are paid drivers who are still learning an awful lot and are not fit to be f1. Sauber has good machinery this year thanks to ferrari engine, but supplying a good engine to them causes more headaches to ferrari than they would earn from the engine sales. The problem is we have too many irresponsible folks on track (carlos sainz, felipe nasr, marcus ericcson, sergio perez) along with the crash stars romain grosjean and pastor maldonado. Even Nico Hulkenberg who is usually sane was driving pretty much on limit and ended up with a penalty due to his recklessness. This many reckless folks on track at same time can cost some innocent driver his life one day. Stringent penalties and red flagging is needed if we want expect good drivers not be harmed by these folks. Of course no one can forget how grosjean's car just missed alonso's head sometime back in a crash. When folks like hamilton / Bottas entered F1, they did act lik

F1 » Mercedes made cash offer to help save German GP


For the sport to retain its characteristic european tracks FOM has to accept a few million dollars less since these tracks do not have oil billionnaires backing them. With Bernie and CVC I just don't see that happening. More european tracks will wind up because the fee that Bernie and CVC charge is rising every year and making it untenable. Only Ferrari , Mercedes and Redbull can stop this. They can together let Bernie and CVC know they will leave from sport if the total no of european venues drop below certain number. But will they do that ? They just want more prize money isn't it ? Europe here it goes. The teams , drivers and technology will be from Europe but not a single F1 race will happen there in future thanks to greed

F1 » Raikkonen: Ferrari not too far from Mercedes


I have never seen Kimi saying the car is good anytime in 2014. In 2012 he had mentioned how good the lotus was few times. So I would take his word for it. The gap to mercedes may be 0.8 to 1 seconds but over few upgrades it can be brought down to 0.3 to 0.5 seconds. At that point it becomes driver skill. If Kimi can put in those fast qual like laps like on sunday, the battle is on. This year he has not complained about the car at all, so he has got a car that he likes . Either he will perform great this year or retire. Im sure one of it will happen.

F1 » Wehrlein to test Force India in Barcelona?


another f1 team dying. Even with Merc Engine they weren't able to make enough money last year to invest and bring a 2015 car to first test in Barcelona let alone Jerez. Some of it has to do with the woes that Vijay Mallya has along with Sahara (I Believe the title sponsor Sahara doesn't put in any money considering it is crippled by Indian Supreme court and its CEO is in jail) but Bernie's method has almost killed everyone except (Redbull, Mercedes and Ferrari ). Sauber has glimpses of hope after the new ferrari engine and I hope Force India and Sauber do not wind up. Lotus isn't doing that great either and can wind up this year. This is very bad for sport. Bernie's policies have lead to increasing costs and law of diminishing returns has taken over. With not many new teams being ready to join, and 3 car teams sound yuck plus all european venues shown the door by Bernie, the future of formula 1 seems getting bleak day by day.

F1 » Qatar closing on F1 race deal for 2016


Well nothing good about it. The sport still is european since most drivers and teams are from there. Bernie cares only about money and there is no way most circuits can compete with the folks in middle east who drill and pour dollars out. Most airline companies are suffering from emirates and etihad the same way. Billions of dollars with no taxes and unlimited funds and no employment /human rights. Welcome to sharia law in all businesses. I for one hope oil dries out. The oil companies in america and europe share equal blame due to their greed. They have helped to grow these state monsters with no concerns for women or human rights. I support formula 1 going to any non oil state in south america or asia but they cannot satisfy greedy cvc or bernie.

F1 » Raikkonen puts Ferrari back on top at Jerez


I think ferrari made a good step forward. It is all they need. A strong base to start with. With no engine freeze and with james allison /kimi / seb they will rebound in couple of races even if they fall out of top 10. Lets not forget they have unlimited finances and less bureaucracy now. Further even saber with ferrari engine was quick. I hope that will enable sauber to be competitive and not end up marussia / caterham.
