• When i was watching qualfying i really enjoyed it as the drivers were clearly being tested to the limit as various drivers spining/ runing wide etc. In my view this is something that F1 has been missing the drivers making the difference in lap time not car performance i.e Hamiltons talent making the difference when all weekend till that point it…[Read more]

  • Its a very i intersting documentery. I remmber when i had a VIP tour that someone said its amazing how much moral had improved with a competative car

  • The biggest drawback from opposing the switch to bigger rims is that this in fact means Michelin won’t make a bid to become F1’s tyre supplier which is a pity. I still genuinely believe they could do a better job […]

  • Refuelling would end under-fuelling strategies (highlight RBR 2010-2013) that further monopolize the pole sitter.

    Not even that, the 100kg of fuel per race rule was always going to stay regardless of in-race refueling.

    was there any particular drivers autograph you wanted? If so email/ ring the relevant teams press office and get hold of a copy of there public/press appearance schedule as they will have it worked out more less were they will be at any point during the weekend. Back in 2005 i went to silverstone and over heard two members of the press dsccusing…[Read more]

  • Its true that on a sub conscus level Rosberg might have a “on/ off switch” that is preventing him from finding the kind of form he needs to achive to beat Hamilton. If he cant switch it on soon, it will become inevtable that Mercedes will put all their effort behind Hamilton as he will be their best chance in the championship

  • I accept what you say about Moss in 1955 and that i was wrong to include it in the above examples. However the pointvi was trying to make is that some drivers have the extra mental capacity/ strength to overcome psychlogical challanges when compared to others i.e not let another driver “get in your head”, Hamilton had this problem last year which…[Read more]

  • Have we seen the best of Rosberg? is a question i have been asking myself as it seams clear to me with his answers to the press (Lewis drove like a world champion)/ comments to the team over the radio (C’omn… after qualifying in china) that he isn’t as happy this year as he was last year. If you forget/ put to one side how competitive the…[Read more]

  • They start the weekends with 13 sets and by the time qualifying starts there are 4 sets of primes and 3 sets of options left (except for maybe one used set of primes they’re usually all fresh). There’s also that […]

  • Dan and Profile picture of MiranMiran are now friends 3 months ago

  • I agree they must be on multi year contracts or at least have get out clauses. However after how he was treated last year by McLaren (who must have know that Alonso was driving for them this year at a board room level at least), I wouldn’t be surprised if Button is looking into other forms of motorsport such as the world endurance championship

  • Just a thought but why don’t you start with a logo for Ferrari/ Renault/ Mercedes/ Honda on top of a box labelled Engine R & D for hybrid technology for the 2015 season.

    Mercedes put in a lot of money
    Ferrari put in some
    Renault hardly put any in at all
    Honda don’t put anything in

    Skip to a screen called 2015 season with engines with
    A Mercedes…[Read more]

  • It is sad to see him in this role some ways that although he is a talented racing driver (just as anyone who races in F1 regardless of the “pay driver” title is), that a young driver isn’t given the opportunity to […]

  • That is very valid points about sufficient toilets/ food requirements etc. But the point I am trying to make is it is surely worth the money to hire a car park/ disused suitable space.I genuinely think this would pay for it self as the team could sell merchandise let fans get close to old cars/ hear a V10 engine fired up and used by test driver to…[Read more]

  • I don’t like Red Bull as a team I respect them for buying the struggling Jaguar team and turning it around to win 4 consecutive driver/ constructor titles, but don’t like the way that they seem to “fast track” drivers who they support in the lower formulas into positions were they are not ready and as a result struggle to make an impact so…[Read more]

  • With the current situation were the teams are struggling for money/ sponsers i am supprised that nobteam has decided to “diversify” its marketing strategy to generate money from F1 fans themselves.

    For example why not sell tours round the factory (may around the august break when anything “sensative or confidential” is locked away and wont…[Read more]

  • I agree with you when i first started watching F1 around 1996 i just to eagly watch as much coverage as i could (and read as much as i could when i got acess to the internet). So i would feel i have a fairly good laymans understanding of the technology/ history of the sport but i am inceasing finiding it difficult to stay motivated to watch the…[Read more]

  • Dan replied to the topic CVC is ruining F1 in the forum Formula One 3 months, 1 week ago

    I agree F1 needs a serious re think, as the way it is going i can genuely see F1 far from being the pinicle of motorsport it ends up like A1 motorsport series (not worth fincialy contiuning as all major sponsers etc pull out). As there are ways that F1 can stop this happening, but due to a few people reluctant to change with the times or…[Read more]

  • May i ask who signed the shirts? And do you have any proof that is geniune signitures i.e cetficate of authencticty etc?

  • Since it is looking unlikely that there wont be a German grand prix this year, that means the drivers will have 1 less grand prix week end worth of mileage to cover. So will we see more action on track on Fridays? It might even help Daniel Kvyat or Alonso/ Magnussen (who each had engine problems in Melbourne), so they are not as disadvantaged as…[Read more]
