F1 » VW boss exit to open door to F1 entry?

I think if you google Dr. Ulrich F1 and irrelevant you will get your answer. The thing is hes right, F1 is not about road going technology, it's about the fastest lap possible. WEC/Endurance racing is far far more relevant. If you want battery technology, look at the electronics market, they will lead by example. WEC is a far superior spectacle btw, at least that series has the balls to let the different manufacturers go with different 'kinds' of motors, even if the series favors a certain 'flavor'.

F1 » VW boss exit to open door to F1 entry?

richard: nutty. still making the nutty statements? there are a lot of items hat have evolved from f1 cars to road cars. paddle shift, duble clutch boxes, hybrid systems, kers, turbos etc etc. ...
you think turbos came from F1 richard? hybrid? clutch boxes? really? lolz. I think you are confusing labels with technology richard, you should wikipedia/google some of the stuff you are talking about before attributing it to F1. @richard, paddle shift, really? lolz. do you realize that kind of technology can be realized by anyone with half a brain right? interest pushes ingenuity, and F1 is a very small island in a very big ocean of interests and opportunities. As for your flag waving stuff, look to the Germany/Japan/US, the UK is not even close when it comes to car technology. Also you don't need paddle shifters on consumer cars, you cannot possibly push a consumer car to the point where you would need them.

F1 » VW boss exit to open door to F1 entry?

Dean Dean: Where do you think all the performance related gadgets and gizmos on modern motors came from, and if there is a fuel flow limitation do you not think that that technology will eventually benefit the average street vehicle ? Whether bikes or cars, innovations are 'hammered out' from the likes of prototype racing...
I dunno, the way I see it, F1 doesn't push anything, the manufacturers with existing technology are pushing F1 as a promotional device for their sales. There are a few aspects of F1 that might bleed in to road cars, but for the most part, it has nothing to do with the consumer experience. F1 is not pushing any boundaries, it exists with in a very rigid set of boundaries established by rule makers and manufacturers. Restriction is not progress, despite what some people repeat as gospel.

F1 » Alonso bemoans lack of driver influence in F1

107SS2009: The new (modern) trend of following formula one is, criticise the racing and anything to do with the racing and you will be in-vogue, facts, objectivity and correctness in what you say does not matter, does not make any difference to those of your calibre (like minded). ... Richard states otherwise/to the contrary with solid facts/gives solid facts, and pronto he gets 5 disagrees/ disapprovals. Benignly, The 2015 PU'S overtook the NA V8'S by at least 100 bhp.
Wonders never cease. Who would have thought a turbo charged motor could produce more power than a larger displacement motor... Who were the guys talking down 850+ bhp before the first race last year with these power units, Who were the guys talking down the opportunity to buffer fuel in between the sensors and injectors. It is amazing isn't it. The obviousness of it all. But at least Ferrari has "surpassed" Mercedes. *** bless one offs.

F1 » New F1 formula hasn’t failed, says Wolff

deejay1001: Something I find it difficult to get my head round is that F1 is supposed to have some relationship to the development of road cars. I can see that relationship as far as the hybrid engine is concerned, fuel efficiency - less pollution, but for the life of me I can't understand the situation re tyres, I want my tyres to be long lasting not be ruined after 25 miles. I want to see the cars being driven fast and aggressively not having to molly coddle the tyres which are too much of a limiting factor.
Did you watch the WEC race at Silverstone? Racing nose to tail for many many laps double and triple stinting. The guys writing the technical restrictions (rules) for F1 need to be replaced. & the R18 is fast enough to run with the F1 field anyways. Not so much the pinnacle any more. And WEC even lets the factories run different engine formulas. It's like night and day. Leave the road cars for WEC, F1 should be flat out.
