F1 » Hamilton/Mercedes contract talks on hold


sodesu:
Lulu has never even dominated his own team mate never mind eras.
Well actually he did dominate Kovalainen. Not sure that qualifies him as the greatest ever, but still... To be honest though I think you're on to something. I'm convinced Mercedes hired him because they saw a new, younger customer base evolving and they felt his brand would strengthen that even more. But I think he's turned out a bit more polarising than they hoped for, and as such may turn away their main customer base. If that's the case then it will definitely not be worth it. Trouble is, he is considered one of the biggest stars in F1 today, rightfully or not, so they need a big name replacement.
A reasonable post, as per usual. Tight work. They need a WDC. Maybe that is why they are waiting until the end of the year. They may have a home grown special. Good with media. Handy with a wheel. Family man. Does not moon the press.

F1 » Mercedes may need to change line-up – Webber


Elswagger:
richard:
Elswagger: So your story about Toto calling off the contract talk sounds like pie in the sky
read the other story on this site!
You mean this “One thing is for sure, we are not going to talk to anybody else before having a very clear situation about how we can continue to work with Lewis. “This is what we have said to each other, that we have no interest in having any other conversation with any other driver. “We are not having any, and Lewis is not having any discussion with any other team, so this is why we trust each other.

F1 » What we learned at the Belgian Grand Prix


rob01:
107SS2009: We learned that Lulu’s on track bullying has been checked-up/stood-up too.
Yes Sunny it has. But as you say they will drag you down to their level and beat you at the game. In my opinion nico is being pulled into the circus.
107SS2009: Rob, You right on that, spot-on.
Agreed. But, for a while I had doubts that he would weather the storm. He just may have. Granted he still has the rest of the year to be guilty by association.

F1 » Hamilton ‘will always put the team first’


Clichy27: Yes, you read it. The (rich) farm boy lucked into the Lotus drive because of his friendship with Chapman. Hamilton is possibly the best F1 driver produced by the UK with the exception of Jackie Stewart.
Just curious, why do you hold Jackie in such high regard? Nothing wrong with that. I do too. It is interesting because Jackie held Clark with a regard that approached fandom. And by the way, there is nothing wrong with holding Hamilton's driving ability up on a mantle. He his better than us until he responds to our challenges. If you aren't trolling, which I doubt, you should read the autosport article on this site about Jimmy Clark. There's much in there that only a driver can appreciate.

F1 » Hamilton ‘will always put the team first’


107SS2009: The Hillman and Sunbeam imp road going (passenger car) version was a derivative (architectural wise) of the Coventry Climax FW fire pump engine.
Very good stuff. Enjoyable reading. I recall a magazine article about doing a restore on a Sunbeam Imp. When you said Hillman Imp, I wondered if the two were the same regarding engine. You confirmed it. I need to dig out the article. The quarter scale threw me off a little bit , but with the 875cc's motor size, it makes perfect sense. Did a quick bit of research on the Hillman Imp. Must have been a fun little ride - rear engine, small wheelbase, good rev'ing. For today's economy crunch, it would be a great little commuter. I was aware of the fire pump motor from Jack Brabham and the Cooper / rear engine revolution, so I threw it out there. Glad you passed along your info. Hats off to the racing you've contributed to. Must have been a great period to race in.
