F1 » Brundle 'uncomfortable' with F1's increasing pay driver spread


"However it's disappointing when you see a driver like Paul di Resta getting booted out of F1 when you know that others are in because they're bringing cash. That's the bit I'm getting uncomfortable with." ..................................................................................................................... PDR the moaner? LMFAO. Now if Brundle had said Kamui Kobayashi then I could understand .

F1 » Paffett: Magnussen will keep Button on his toes


I think if you ask Lewis Hamilton what his goals were for 2007 it was probably to have some good results and he nearly ended up winning the championship - so I think it is a similar situation, you have to be open minded. ................................................................................................................. Sorry Maggs , Lewis revealed on GP 247 that Ron told him that he should not expect to beat Alonso but Lewis said he did not and would not entertain that thought .

F1 » Paffett: Magnussen will keep Button on his toes


richard , no I don't believe every thing Lewis says but him blasting past Alonso in the 2007 Aussie GP showed his intent for that season. richard,I don't think Ron asking Alonso to race a rookie on equal terms is Ron manipulating results. richard I feel you are being mischievous. Taz it cant be all bad on that site. I did think their driver of the year was a bit more realistic than on some sites.

F1 » Gerhard Berger critical of 'underpowered' modern F1


And sorry PX, the turbo charged engine will be more efficient than the naturally aspirated engine regards air transfer through the engine as the aspirated engine cant pull in enough atmospheric pressure to equal a atmosphere due to the chamber losing volumetric efficiency when the piston is on its downward motion trying to suck in ambient air when the air intake valve opens. With a turbo or even a supercharger as the Air intake valves open the cylinders are already under pressure due to the turbo or supercharger sending compressed air to the chamber's thus gaining more atmospheric pressure which can be many time the atmosphere in the cylinder/chamber, making the car more efficient regards propulsion. Anyway I think the f1 cars using air pressured or nitro loaded valves these days.

F1 » Gerhard Berger critical of 'underpowered' modern F1


Except that there is no free energy as the more air you shove in to a motor, the more fuel you have to add. Turbos do not increase efficiency, what does is designing a motor/drive train specific to a use case in which you can optimize for a certain efficiency. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Px, granted the more air you push through the cylinder chamber the more fuel you will use, but the harvesting of electric energy via mgu k is free as when the driver brakes the generator part of the mguk engages with the cars rear wheel via the cars transmission and starts to charge all done when the drivers foot is off the gas as he is braking. And as for the mgu h it is the waste exhaust gasses that that drive the turbine wheel so again the mgu attached to the shaft is being charged theoretically fuel free. So propulsion is gained by free energy harvesting .

@ seashack nothing wrong with nostalgia mate, but we have to move with the times specially now that in 2014 we will be using two of recovery systems compared to 2013's one, with the upgraded Kers being supplemented by the new MGU H via the turbocharger there is going to be plenty of ooomph in these cars at some stages in a race. richard I did not say having smaller engines would save the planet I'm saying when most industries are trying to cut emissions it would not look good for F1 to go a different way and the fact that we are gaining extra boost fuel Free theoretically can only be a good thing, F1 has the know how and are using it, and I for one welcome the route f1 is taking.
