F1 » ‘Mercedes 2016 dominance is inevitable’


So the assumption is that everybody else will remain static over the winter? It's not all about the PU either. Aero changes can also bring more to the table. "They will undoubtedly be nearest the top of the curve and will get lesser returns than potentially others." So which is it Horner? Either they will be miles ahead or not? You seem to contradict yourself buy hedging your bets with that silly statement. Of course Mercedes is close to their development ceiling under the current regs. It's called physics. As for pure HP, there is not a lot of daylight between Ferrari and Mercedes and I don't think Ferrari has been sitting on their hands.

F1 » ‘Mercedes 2016 dominance is inevitable’


jackSprout:
richard:
jackSprout: so in your belief there is no connection between "ilmor" and mercedes, not even at an advisory level..when did "ilmor" become a totally independent company? who bought them?
please do some research before you sprout incorrect "facts"
merely adding some spice to the commentary, i am not a formula1 insider, but have seen the devolution of the sport as a trend toward uniformity...not what the sport is about.
How about everybody educating themselves on Ilmore: ilmor.co.uk/team

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2015 - 1st


Ponty:
Equin0x: Simply the best allrounder right now in F1, until Max matures of course, also Vettel putting Ricciardo away at the ROC was what's needed to put everything to bed about Ricciardo's quality as a driver.
Oh come on rate f1 drivers based on a silly ROC event rather than performance in a same f1 car as team mates at RBR.
Let's see...just how exceptional is Riccardo as a driver? Here's a little fact. This year alone, Vettel has had more podiums in one year than Riccardo has had during his entire f1 career. To me, that says a lot. Riccardo has been over-rated from the start and judging from this year, Kvyat has shown this fact even more.

F1 » Mercedes, Ferrari are controlling F1 – Newey


It's the manufactures that have the most invested in F1. It's not their fault the FIA chose to bring in teams with limited resources and a car without an engine. Could you see someone dragging a car to a local track with no engine and then bitching because either nobody will sell him one or they are asking too much so they can recoup their R&D and Overhead costs for producing it? Let's face it. If you don't want to be at the mercy of the evil manufacturers, then find an engine before you show up.

F1 » Ferrari prepared to quit F1 over mandate move


If it is no longer in the interest for a manufacturer to remain in F1, it would only make sense to leave. F1 is not the only show. Ferrari has done more over the history of F1 for the sport than any other entity or personality. It's presence in F1 is iconic and expected. Ferrari has lent an air of sophistication in F1 over the years that people have come to expect. Their leaving F1 would have an immediate impact on the health of the sport. The long term impact could be devastating. Especially if Mercedes eventually follows which I bet they would. Here's the deal. The white haired mountain troll has ruined the sport of F1. I think the majority of fans agree. Now he and the Little Dictator have been given license to ruin it even more. Ferrari contends that the so-called mandate is not legally binding. I read one source that said Mercedes and others agree. So, Ferrari is at the point that if the Little Dictator and his troll gets their way and makes remaining in the sport unbearable, th
