Actually, I’ve been thinking about this… I think I worked out how to secure money for Mannor in the longterm, not just the short term, and even fix up F1 so that the drivers reaped the rewards instead of FIA and FOM.
Announcing Bernie Ecclestone as the 2nd named driver for Manor, but obviously no Number 2 behind anyone, let alone that Stevens kid…
Bernie would surely change the course of FOM and FIA to ensure that the drivers got all the cash… He also wouldn’t be caught dead in a back marker team, he’d change the rules so that all 2015 cars were illegal, leaving Manor the only legal car out there, then on top of it, ensure that the Stevens kid had lots of mechanical issues. For 2015, he’d quickly change the cash allocations from the TV rights, so that the team with the least amount of points got the most amount of money and the team with the most from 2014 would get nothing. He would change the rules to allow T-cars again, so whenever Bernie’s car would break down, he’d just take over the car driven by that Stevens’ kid. If the conditions were too tough, he’d have the race stopped until it cooled down, or warmed up, or stopped raining, til it was within his comfort levels.2nd March 2015, 8:41 at 8:41 am #293367
A lot of people are picking Max Chilton yet forgetting that he’s likely going to IndyCars to become the reincarnation of 1993 Nigel Mansell.
@rjoconnell I like where you went with this, however, if Chilton was to become famous in Indy Car, he’d be more like Zanardi, who also achieved very little in F1, only to win Indy Car titles. At least Nige won a championship in F1 ;)2nd March 2015, 8:35 at 8:35 am #293366
1. My question that I’d ask Vettel: What is one of your main strengths out on the track, one thing that gives you that edge over others?
2. Heres a horrible question from Abu Dhabi in 2014 that I could spend hours typing this out, instead, enjoy…24th November 2014, 10:41 at 10:41 am #287054
@keithcollantine it wouldn’t be the same without you… besides, F1F keeps me occupied during the off season ;)4th October 2014, 11:08 at 11:08 am #276864
Speculation on Alonso’s 2015 seat is rife. However, here is Massa’s prediction…4th October 2014, 2:46 at 2:46 am #276786
@s2g-unit RIC is already confirmed for next year, so RBR will be fielding Kyvat and Ricciardo in 2015. As for Alonso, he’ll be going to McLaren and rumours suggesting Button will be out2nd October 2014, 10:05 at 10:05 am #276489
@andae23 You are my friend, one of the geekiest F1 fanatics I’ve ever met, great article, and exactly echos my thoughts on the fact that graphene is definitely something that will make its way into F1… Btw, I call you a geek out of the greatest of admiration, people with knowledge seldom get credit in todays society, but you are definitely a wealth of knowledge.24th July 2014, 2:22 at 2:22 am #267904
I do believe if Bernie was told by the UN or by the British parliament that he was not allowed to hold the race in Russia that he would pocket whatever fees that the organisers have already given him and cancel the event. It would give Bernie the perfect out clause. However he wont cancel the race based on sentiment alone, Bahrain has already set the precedent on this.7th July 2014, 10:07 at 10:07 am #265975
I originally thought Bottas’ move was brilliant (can’t remember who he got), but I do think Alonso on Ricciardo around Club.27th May 2014, 11:08 at 11:08 am #261904
Hulk on Magnussen for pass of the year for sure…
Fail of the year was Kimi on Magnussen, but gets quote of the year, Kimi said to autosport afterwards:
“I never hit him until I reversed, because obviously he was behind me.”16th May 2014, 10:47 at 10:47 am #260535
Alfa Romeo, red cars go faster ;)
Best number 2 driver? Eddie Irvine or Rubens Barrichello?11th May 2014, 8:34 at 8:34 am #259714
It isn’t the first time VET has come back at the 2nd half of a championship season, however, at this moment in time, it seems very distant. However, it is clear to me that the RBR is the best of the rest.10th May 2014, 10:41 at 10:41 am #259475
2010 Red Bull RB6, but I’m biased :P
Which of these 2014 innovations will most likely be around in 10 years, Turbos powered by energy or KERS powered by energy?10th May 2014, 3:51 at 3:51 am #259473
Vettel at Abu Dhabi, great championship winning drive…
What produces a faster car aerodynamics or horsepower?4th May 2014, 1:20 at 1:20 am #258723
Perhaps the Ferrari cars aren’t well earthed, there is a lot more electricity generation going on in the cars, perhaps this isn’t by design and its just a by product of all the new technologies and Ferrari haven’t sorted their MGU-K and HGU-K units. That would still go towards what you are saying about Ferrari powered teams, however, you’ve assumed its by design, when it could be a bug.
Obviously the levels of static build up aren’t enough to be dangerous to mechanics working on the cars in pit stops, however, maybe its enough interference to mess with the cameras. Furthermore, teams control how the cameras are mounted to their cars and also how they are wired up, perhaps its also a case of not installing the camera correctly.
Or perhaps the quality of the cameras on a handful of cars, which you’ve found to be ferrari powered cars by chance aren’t great quality.
