F1 » Issues ‘very difficult to swallow’ - Hamilton


LLarry: My goodness, some of you folk really are beyond pathetic. Whatever your feelings about Hamilton as a person, he is undoubtedly (together with Alonso) one of the few true racers on the grid. The point that he has suffered repeated issues in qualifying that are not his fault yet despite that has driven through the field to even beat his team-mate in Hungary shows his ability and determination. Some of his recent comments are clearly designed to shake his side of the garage up to improve reliability (entirely justified) and to prevent a repeat of the crazy 'move over' team orders (again fully justified).
Couldn't agree more. This forum is evenly divided between true F1 fans and....children. Glad to see (and read) some reasoned viewpoints from time to time!

F1 » What we learned at the Hungarian Grand Prix


DuhFerrari: Thank you, I see Mattiacci in a different light. Made all the other team principals look very small and self centered.
I totally agree. He could have simply gone along with the other team principals and bemoan what, in reality, was a tiny infringement of an even tinier subsection of the rule - rules which hardly and F1 fan knows or cares about - but instead he focused on what F1 is REALLY all about (fierce driving and overtaking) and ought to be aggressively promoting at every opportunity, whether it comes from Hamilton, Alonso, Ricciardo, etc. The guy seems to have perspective!

F1 » Ricciardo wins Hungarian thriller


here4thesun2:
Buzz45: I hope I never hear Hamilton use the words " What's best for the team". He disobeyed team orders and almost certainly cost the team a win. its virtually certain that Rosberg would have won the race if Hamilton had followed team orders. The result would have been a 1st and a 4th for the team, not a 3rd and a 4th. He has now blown any chances of Nico ever helping him in the future. Whatever way you look at it, he did the wrong thing, and so did the team by not insisting that he gave way.
This is fact. Unfavorable, but fact.
WTF???

F1 » Alonso praises ‘unbelievable’ Ricciardo


Absolutely BRILLIANT racing between these two - the master, Alonso, and the tough rookie, Ricciardo. What makes Daniel so special is that he doesn't drive or race like a rookie - more like a seasoned pro. No way Alonso would have tried those moves on him time after time unless he had complete and total confidence in DR. Can you imagine the same scenario with Maldonado or Perez? There most certainly would have been a coming together. That was some of the most aggressive, exciting and PROFESSIONAL driving I've seen in twenty years of watching F1....more please!

F1 » Lopez insists ‘great things to come’ from Lotus


Perhaps they could start next season by building a car that doesn't look like a giant salon hair straightener. They have access to a squillion dollar wind tunnel and state of the art CAD/Computational Fluid Dynamics, etc. and then tell us that THIS is aerodynamic efficiency? Maybe I'm missing something. In any case, let's hope they can find some of the form they lost when Kimi accepted Ferrari's big bucks! :-)

MotoGP » Second wrist surgery for Nicky Hayden


Totally agree with TalentFan - except that it would be a damn shame to see Nicky go out with a whimper. Not only a talented rider, but a real class act. It's funny to hear him (Hayden) describe himself as 'crying' about his injury. In reality, he's done anything but cry - just gotten on with a handicap that most others really WOULD cry about. This so-called world championship is really more to do with the haves and the have-nots rather than true competition. Dorna need to give all the riders competitive machinery or risk this championship losing all credibility. No offence to Marquez et al, but dang, it sure would be nice to see a group of 8-10 riders in with a shout of a win from time to time!
