Kubica’s fightback through the field in the latter stages in the 2010 race was awesome, overtaking a car a lap on a circuit that’s difficult to overtake on at the best of times.19th August 2015, 12:12 at 12:12 pm #303327
We should all start a kickstarter project to bring back the old version of Hockenheim ;)13th August 2015, 0:26 at 12:26 am #303159
Romain Grosjean’s most notable F1 crash has probably been his race banning one at Spa 2012 but Brazil in the same year was probably a worse impact.17th June 2015, 10:25 at 10:25 am #300171
I wonder if none of them gave a proper answer because they didn’t want to mention the 6th Brit in the field in the form of Eddie Irvine ;)
Brundle probably rates highest in my books, could have quite easily won a few races – he is often regarded as the toughest of Schumacher’s teammates.22nd February 2015, 17:10 at 5:10 pm #292674
I think the new engines have lessened the DRS effect quite dramatically. With the old V8s, the cars hit the top speeds a lot quicker with the DRS open and half way down the straight, the cars hit the terminal velocity. With the new engines, the cars are still accelerating to the top speed just as they arrive at the braking zone. Somehow, it’s lessened the DRS effect. If the engines are more powerful this year, then the DRS could be lessened even more8th January 2015, 10:38 at 10:38 am #290123
“What if Raikkonen’s engine hadn’t blown up at the Nurburgring and had gone on to win that race?”
“What if Heinz-Harald Frentzen’s car didn’t pack up whilst leading at the Nurburgring? And at the same race, what if Ferrari hadn’t botched Irvine’s pit-stop?”30th November 2013, 23:09 at 11:09 pm #246048
Best – Vettel’s donuts.
Worst – Everything else
This season has put me off F1 so much and sadly I don’t see it improving any time soon.8th November 2013, 22:34 at 10:34 pm #244828
I remember Ferrari ran some sort of moveable floor in the first race 2007 which promptly got banned for the next race after a rules clarification, so I think it’s old news.5th November 2013, 19:40 at 7:40 pm #244703
Am I right in saying that Markus Winkelhock is the only driver to have led every race he’s started?26th August 2013, 9:04 at 9:04 am #240750
Raikkonen’s move on Perez after Rivage or Esteban Gutierrez scrapping with Maldonado from the exit of Stavelot all the way to the Bus Stop would be my two candidates15th August 2013, 21:26 at 9:26 pm #182772
I remember a Budweiser advert sometime in 2004 where Marc Gene, the Williams test driver struggled to lap a circuit in the shape of a Budweiser symbol (It was shot at Silverstone) but I can’t find that advert anywhere.28th July 2013, 23:23 at 11:23 pm #239516
Penalty aside, Grosjean’s move on Massa was incredible.
If we’re not allowing good overtakes that were penalised, then Hamilton’s second move on Webber coming out of turn 2 just after his final pit stop.15th July 2013, 13:21 at 1:21 pm #238864
@joeyz-f1 – I personally don’t have anything against it because it was before my time but whenever I read discussions of bad F1 tracks, Nivelles always seems to come up. I’ve read that the track was not particular fan friendly and considered to be too safe for F1, and that was in the 1970s as well.15th July 2013, 9:22 at 9:22 am #238857
I’m surprised I haven’t seen the Nivelles-Baulers circuit pop up here yet11th June 2013, 14:35 at 2:35 pm #237588
1. If a drivers are under a certain time behind another driver, lets say half a second, then either both or neither can use DRS
2. GET RID OF DRS!!
