F1 » What we learned at the British Grand Prix?


JACKBEE: jp13......speaking of forums, has anyone noticed that absolute lack of posts on the British GP? Although it was one of the more exciting races under the current regs, there seems very little enthusiasm for F1 on here. Just look at the number of posts last weekend for the Assen MotoGP, and compare that to this weeks F1 posts, probably in the region of 10:1 in favour of MotoGP. ... OK some of us oldies may have run out of ideas, but not all of us!! Anyway lets hear some FRESH ideas from you youngsters.
JackBee, are you sure that it is not just with this forum. Some of those in the '1' side of the 10:1 ratio may be people coming over from the '10' side to rub it in *ahem* point people to go watch more bike racing. Aside from that , the old hands are no longer here to help shoe the horses.

F1 » Raikkonen brushes off strategic error as pressure mounts


ProfessorDave: It was worth the gamble to pit early for inters, it could have won Ferrari the race whereas if they followed the safe route the best they could hope for was 3rd.
I agree. Not only does the move split strategy, it clearly hedges bets where a gamble, almost longshot, was needed. Kimi did a Lewis - dove into the pits because the tires could not help him keep his teammate off his stern - a few laps too early. To say that Hamilton is a better weatherman is just wishing brains upon where fate prevailed. As the case turned out, when the rain came down, Vettel chuckled 'Now this is my kind of race'. Bad luck for Kimi. Stay away from the casinos.

F1 » Bottas: It would have been nice to race Felipe…


I agree, Bottas should have backed Hamilton up. If not for Massa's benefit, for his own. He needed the cushion to save his tires. Chances are he could have kept Hamilton at bay coming off the corners and maintained a lead going into them. Nico stayed back a bit - over 1 sec, then reeled the group back in at will. I think this is why he had so much grip in reserves when the initial rain came. Hamilton wore his out trying to pass Bottas. The same regarding Bottas - Massa.

F1 » Hamilton beats Williams, rain in British GP thriller


Corkey:
here4thesun2: What a frustrating race to watch. Oh wait, unless you're a Hamilton fan. Well done. Lots of luck. Lots of skill. Lots of results. Good to see Nico claw back second. A lap or two more if the rain held off and Nico would have been by. But Hamilton would have given a hard time in the rain. No if ands or buts.
I think it was frustrating only if you are an anti-Hamilton fan. The race was exciting and had lots of drama. It was a great race for once.
You really don't have any idea how this fan thing works, do you. Credit goes to Hamilton, but that doesn't mean I was pulling for him. Far from anti-Hamilton.
