    I wrote Super Aguri off for the 2014 title some time early 08.

    I agree. Can we nominate Hamiltons 5 laps of defensive master class as pass of the race/year?

    I don’t understand Massa’s logic of, “why should I give up my advantage”. He’s basically admitting that he has an unfair advantage and is willing to utilise that. I do a lot of Karting, and the light guys are forever saying they wish they were the same weight as their competitors so that they could prove it’s not all about weight.

    I’m surprised that the general consensus appears to be Ros > Ham and Mag > But. I think I will save my prediction until after the first Bahrain test.

    The next one is interesting. Shows something that looks like Honda 08 “bunny ears” on the nose.

    So bianchi will not be getting any of his choices then.

    It’s because nobody is pushing or racing. No one is on the limit so no one makes mistakes.

    Possibly. But then it could have been caused in Italy qualifying and made worse in Abu Dhabi. The fact is unfortunately we don’t know, all we do know is that in Abu Dhabi it was cracked I suppose therefore, we should only let it affect our judgement of Hamiltons Abu Dhabi performance.

    I think you’re onto something with the pitstop shortcut or increasing the pit lane speed limit. If the penalty for pit stops was lower, more teams would be inclined to make more pit stops as apposed to saving tyres. I think one thing that is clear is that everyone wants to be seeing drivers push harder throughout the race and anything that achieves that will be good. I watched the 2007 USGP a few days ago, and drivers were going off the track all by them selves, because they were pushing over the limit. When was the last time we saw that in a dry race?

    I see your point in terms of costs, however, what irks me about that is we take sets of wets to every race when we know they won’t be used because a race will be red flagged if they are required. Also, maybe only a few extra would be needed,as less of each compound could be taken. For example. Teams could take 4 of each tyre, so 16 overall, as apposed to the 11 that are taken now.

    There are definitely flaws, but I think giving teams the choice of which compounds they use is definitely a good thing.

    … So what do you guys think. I’m sure I’ve missed an obvious major flaw in the idea, but it seems to me that, with 2 stops guaranteed, and giving teams an opportunity to pick tyres that suit them, we are more likely to see drivers pushing, as apposed to managing tyres for the majority of the time.

    It shouldn’t be forgotten that Hamilton led Rosberg in both races before his retirements.

    I watched china 2011 last night. That was a pretty epic win from Hamilton. It also made me think, why don’t we have tyres like 2011, they were great. High deg, different strategies, but drivers still pushing like hell!

    If he drives using the same attitude as Maldonado it probably wouldn’t have taken much from Bird. I suspect he was angry because he thinks everyone should just jump out the way because he is entitled to win. I suspect he will also deny any wrongdoing if asked, most likely claiming he lost control of the car. And yes, this does all sound very familiar.

    I mentioned during the session that we appear to be seeing a pattern when it comes to Venezuelan drivers and their attitude towards their competitors. There seems to be a mindset of entitlement and superiority, and that they can just do whatever they want.
