F1 » Rosberg must ‘get half the job done’ in qualifying

I personally think Rosberg has been neutered by all the drama last year. The song and dance that was created when it was felt Lulu had been hard done by (Monaco and Belgium spring to mind), I wouldn't be surprised if his drama queen antics have made Merc come down on Rosberg a bit to keep the peace so to speak. Personally, if I had a car as dominant as the Mercedes and a driver had gone all diva like LH did at Monaco last year, I'd have kicked him out.

F1 » Prost says being a team manager his 'biggest mistake'

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that in the last year or so, 3 former team managers have said Senna wanted to drive for them! We have to assume he'd have stayed at Williams for 3 years, given he would have most likely snapped up the 94, 95 and 96 titles. By then he'd have been 37 and it is widely believed he wanted to drive/end his career for Ferrari. So say he did 3 years there to take him to 40. I read last year that Giancarlo Minardi said Senna wanted to drive his final year in F1 for free for them, to bring them up the grid, and now Prost is saying they were talking about him driving for Ligier/Prost...The guy would have been racing till he was 50!

F1 » Drivers: Bianchi death won’t change way we drive

And what if he had hit a marshall? Would we then be saying that races have to be stopped anyime 1 single marshall is within the confines of the circuit? It's not disrespectful to state the facts. The tractor didn't hit the Marussia, the Marussia hit the tractor. If drivers obey the simple rules, and that is to SLOW DOWN, it wouldn't matter if you parked the Titanic in the gravel trap, no one would hit it. I wonder if people would be making the same comments had Bianchi 'only' piled into a bunch of marshalls.

F1 » Hamilton ‘not against’ closed cockpit prospect

107SS2009: Unlike the geniuses that frequent this site to air their brightness the geniuses at the FIA failed to come down as hard as a ton of bricks on drivers disregarding waved double yellow flags which indicates great danger ahead and that they must slow down and be prepared to stop. And do please stop pushing the total BS that if a driver lifts off it indicates he did slow down, slow down he might be interpreted to have done but certainly wasn’t ready to stop having lost the car under double yellow waved flags at 203 KMH.
Thank you! FINALLY! I have found someone who says the same as I do! While it's sad a driver died, if all the drivers obeyed the flags to the spirit of the rules then this wouldnt have happened. Waved yellow flags mean BE PREPARED TO STOP and as you rightly point out, Bianchi was nowhere near prepared to stop.

F1 » F1 2015 driver salaries published – but who earns most?

IE22: Its an absolute disgrace what Roberto Merhi is being paid if you take into account that he is putting his life on the line at every race
LoveF1: Flippin' 50 grand? To risk your life driving an F1 car? Roberto's Merhi's salary is what some rich people spend at the roulette tables in one weekend (or even one night) during the Monaco Grand Prix! He probably can't afford to go out spending the dosh at every F1 race he goes to drive at all year! Jut sit in his motorhome and read a magazine :-)
Bit of an exxageration I'd say. Sure it's peanuts in the grand scheme, but it's more dangerous drving to work on the roads each day plus, if he doesn't want to do it, there are plenty that will. Supply Vs Demand.
