Why would any developer choose to put Yas Marina in their game unless they’re being paid an awful lot of money for it?20th April 2014, 10:15 at 10:15 am #257589
Because he was. I think we’ll struggle to change the mind of somebody who thinks Red Bull and Ricciardo are the same nationality.15th April 2014, 2:17 at 2:17 am #256955
Most recently I think I’ve had to drastically adjust my hopes for Mercedes in 2010l I imagined they’d be going for podiums at least.
They did. Rosberg got 3.15th April 2014, 2:15 at 2:15 am #256954
I gave up on Ferrari for the 2014 constructors title some time in 2012.8th April 2014, 18:01 at 6:01 pm #256029
Wow, how ridiculous. Even more silly, he also lost in 2004 when he should have won on countback according to the rules of any other championship.
He must have lost them because they use the number of finishes to decide the winner, which seems like an odd measure. It’s hardly the most prestigious championship (less significant than his 2 La Mans wins during which he seemed scary fast), but he really should be a 3 times champion.8th April 2014, 0:19 at 12:19 am #255972
Formula 1 is not the only sport in which a person’s weight is important. Runners, cyclists, jockeys, and many other athletes have learned how to be light in a healthy way, and perhaps this is relatively new for F1 drivers.
The difference is that those (besides jockeys) are not passive- they power themselves or their bikes in a way that F1 drivers don’t. They won’t be dangerously light because it is more important to build the correct muscles and train them for a variety of specific purposes (strength, explosive power, endurance, speed) than it is to focus solely on weight. F1 drivers do need a certain physicality to endure the race, but it doesn’t otherwise impact their performance (besides exhaustion and raised heartbeat perhaps affecting concentration/decision making). But weight is far more important to their performance at the moment. Giving up 0.3 seconds per lap all through a race isn’t a realistic option.
I like that F1 has a physical aspect so that drivers appear to be proper athletes. But I don’t think drivers should be punished for their natural build too much. Driving should ultimately be about driving talent rather than height.3rd April 2014, 18:25 at 6:25 pm #255177
The Senna content is almost with us. Let’s just hope it’s free. I’m a bit ****** off that the promised GPS/track designer hasn’t turned up yet. Mind you, the GPS on my phone is so inaccurate that I probably wouldn’t be able to plot a favourite route anyway. At least they’ve been releasing the odd concept car within days of their unveiling. Still, hopefully things will kick of a bit now.31st March 2014, 11:39 at 11:39 am #254866
This video really nicely shows how open the ducting under the nose through to the sides is on the Porsche. It surprising how much daylight you can see.29th March 2014, 22:17 at 10:17 pm #254596
They’re running a less sawn-off front in testing.
Also, too much white!25th March 2014, 18:00 at 6:00 pm #253777
And I had not realised that the rules were so different this year.
Audi have changed their plan with regards to the ERS.25th March 2014, 17:21 at 5:21 pm #253757
Now that it’s no longer in black (which I preferred) it looks much less menacing at the front. I hadn’t realised how much the nose and lights had shrank before.
I find it odd that they call silver the base colour, seeing as how black and white are both more prominent. I find it too much of a hodge-podge personally- their last one was as well, but the colours at least weren’t as contrasting. The beautifully fluid, simple originals are still best.
I know they’re quite plain liveries, but I don’t care when they show off the shape of the car so well.24th March 2014, 21:33 at 9:33 pm #253662
I didn’t even know MotoGP was back yet. I never catch more than the odd race, but I’m already missing it being on the BBC, where at least I could access a good quality version.17th March 2014, 15:37 at 3:37 pm #252323
I suppose to be fair the guard wouldn’t necessarily have a clue what an F1 driver looked like over any other driver or pretend driver. It might have been an F1-only section (rather than the V8s).17th March 2014, 15:37 at 3:37 pm #252551
Entertaining, but you can’t really blame the guy. Especially if that was an F1-only section- he has no idea specifically what an F1 driver looks like.17th March 2014, 15:37 at 3:37 pm #252612
