F1 » F1: Verstappen: Mental strength ‘bulls**t’


Yeyo: He is a kid hence he does not know what real stress means because at his age driving a F1 car it is like playing video games. We will see what will happen when his bosses and media start bothering him about he is not producing the outcome everybody is expecting from him. Real life will come.
Exactly, lets see what he says in his 2nd season. It's all ok driving with the hype behind you and no expectations, but once the bosses, the sponsor and the media start pressuring you, that is when mental strength is not BS.

F1 » Bianchi suffers 'severe head injury' in crash


eggy: racers race, you cant expect them to slow down any more than they absolutely have to (thus giving an advantage to an opponant ) they will heed the flags but they will not coast around not knowing if the driver ahead is getting away and the driver behind is gaining, this needs to be taken out of there hands, something like making them use the pit lane limiters out on the track when there is an emergency vehicle out there would mean they cant go fast enough to do any real damage perhaps ???
Eggy, I won't start a war or words or anything for it's not appropriate today, but the yellow flags are for the safety of marshals primarily, the volunteers who without, no racing drier could race. It's quite simple, if you don't slow down for yellows you should be penalised, and then we'll avoid incidents such as this.

F1 » Bianchi suffers 'severe head injury' in crash


I'm glad you feel the same, like you I've been involved in a number of incidents where drivers haven't slowed enough under yellows an like you say its the FIA's fault for not punishing it more harshly and as you say Taipan, people then see others gain an advantage and think "Why should I slow down?" Primarily the flags are there for the safety of the marshalls, and its lucky none were hurt today. I'd say JB was going too fast for the waved yellow conditions, and a point needs to be made of that by the FIA.

Agreed Taipan, right now all that matters is JB making a complete recovery. This is impossible to answer, but without sounding insensitive we don't know that JB was actually doing so for those totally 100% condemning the marshalls and having a recovery vehicle on track, remember that waved yellows were being shown, and here is what the rulebook says about waved yellows: No overtaking, slow down and prepare to make drastic changes to the racing line or BE PERPARED TO STOP. IF, and I say IF, JB didn't slow down enough upon seeing the flags then at least some of the blame lay with him. This doesn't mean I don't wish him to make a full recovery.
