F1 » Kate Walker: The Kimi conundrum for Ferrari


kimi's situation says two things. I am here until dec. '15. try to make it less. and, if you want a WDC winning driver with a young turk, give me a contract extension now or i'll be moving on in '16 and you will have only youth after Alonso effs-off after this season. This is about the most ridiculous comment I've read in 2014: In an ideal world, that would allow Bianchi time to mature before being taken under Alonso's wing and nurtured as the next red-suited racing hero. ... besides Red Bull were going to appeal Australia.

F1 » Hamilton takes home win as Rosberg retires


We were denied a race for the win, but that's how it goes. Good job to pull it home Hamilton. A little spice to the WDC. Just let's not shoot the yapper off. Glad to hear Kimi is fine all things considered. Good racing continues behind the Mercs. Edit: another great podium by Bottas. Look forward to Massa having a bit of luck needed to pull some results. Good racing and strategies by others - DR, JB, SV, and FA.

F1 » Rosberg: Good for me that Hamilton is sixth


Great Job, Nico. Dogged determination shown by those that went out. Not sure if those that got the best times first in the quali wanted to save machinery. Vettel did not have much of a choice to go out, nor Hulk. Nico though seems to have a championship winning desire to race in every session. Hamilton may learn from this, maybe not. But his downfall seems to be he tries to beat his teammate only, where his teammate tries to beat everybody. Can't see the forest for the trees.

F1 » HAVE YOUR SAY: Standing start restarts in F1?


DTM was racing on Hockenheim. A prime example of a redesign. I believe much of the intent was to reduce the amount of time the people in the grandstands had to wait per lap before seeing their favorites. Not removing the fast part of the course would have, today, Williams stomping all over RBR while RBR could pull it back in the twisty bits. Nowadays, the grandstands could be treated to the show in front of them and another race in itself from the long straights of Hockenheim broadcast on the big screens. But one thought process went in and one design came out. "Who wants to wait an extra X seconds for the next lap?" My point is that the track designs were attempts at improving the show. I am not the only one critical of these track elements. And I don't think that you can chalk it all up to safety. A look at improving the tracks for racing would improve the racing on the tracks.

If they want to fix something that is breaking the show, start with the tracks. I just some caught broadcasts of DTM and GT races playing in succession, so I got to see a few different track layouts. None of those tracks had Tilke corners, it seems. All of the corners were curves not the broken leg corners that Tilke built to create braking zones. The Tilke corners have only one way through the corner and that is to get as close to the 90 degree part as possible which provides one lane only. The passing needs to be completed before the corner. This begs for a DRS type system. IMO, a terrible idea and design, but propagated throughout the new tracks and at least one of the old. Austin was a step away from the model, but the weak parts of the course are those Tilke elements. The GT and DTM cars working the curves would approach the entry on any number of lines, all dependent on where the car was in front and what the setup could allow, and fight all the way through a series of corne

richard: here4. the corners are not "tilke corners". they are fia mandated corners. tilke just has to incorporate them and ensure that construction is correct. and incidentally, dtm does use some "tilke " tracks
Yes, Rich, you are correct that the FIA asked Tilke to incorporate the designs, but if FIA designed the corners, why bother contracting Tilke? Tilke was the project manager for a construction company, is this correct? There's an article a few years back (Motorsport or F1) where the powers of opinion were looking at the racing strategy (drivers, principals, FIA members, and track designer) and how to improve the racing. Sound familiar? In the article, Tilke went into detail about the various (2) ways to build a corner. He explained the reasoning behind kinking the corner. One of the reasons were to create a braking zone. Another was to bunch the cars up.

AyrtonSenna: Aah but richard, where's the skill in that? That means a drag race for cars that are meant to go around a track as fast as possible. I mean come on, I'll win an f1 race if it comes down to that.
Then you will need to change your name to JohnForce. You bring up a good point about drag racing. Gear ratios will be changed to provide better standing starts.

rob01: What happens to the dirty side of the starting grid after 20 or so laps? There will be marbles all over the place and for sure near the first turns. A driver having a good race could have his tires covered in marbles and lose positions due to this stupid rule.
Never be so smart that you can't learn from the stoopid. This is what I cannot understand about the FIA and the marbles problem. NASCAR sweeps the tracks between every caution with Jet-Dryers. A lap around the track or key corners with a few Jet-Dryers would cure this problem. Then at least two lanes would be available for racing. Now all you need to do is find an F1 track with two racing lanes. (Could this be the real problem?) But since F1 cannot find their marbles, I don't expect they would know what to do with them.
