ha ha that all makes sense. I dont have an account with any of those products. Cheers pal for your reply much appreciated!23rd May 2011, 12:58 at 12:58 pm #169046
Ripa move! Balls of steel… Curious as this has been raised in the past… Is is OK that Vets moved 3 times (left, right, left) across the the track. Is it only an issue if its in the braking zone? Could someone please clear this up for me?15th May 2011, 15:16 at 3:16 pm #168750
@mtom12 – Thank you mate, finally someone with some facts on situation. The info we received down under was a little vague and contradictory to what was being reported on formula1.com. My original post was not intended to create a conspiracy rant (which i am more than happy to do) however just to find out which driver had access to the upgrades etc…
This upgrade would have been planned for some time so i don’t buy into the theory that RBR only had enough time to develop parts for one car.
I agree, he hasn’t. In all his victories not once has never had to hustle or battle hard for the win. Put him in the pack and 9/10 times hes likely to make a meal of it. Dont get me wrong he is talented however in my eyes he is no true champion.
First i am hearing about the new rear wing. Interesting…
Smooth moves!15th May 2011, 15:02 at 3:02 pm #168749
Cheers pal I appreciate the support ;] AUSSIEGRIT!15th May 2011, 14:33 at 2:33 pm #134824
I went to edit my profile however i can not see any option to set/update the Avatar. So sorry for the silly post, am i doing something hideous?15th May 2011, 14:23 at 2:23 pm #168746
There is no conspiracy, it is simple, so far RBR have failed to give Webber the tools he needs to adequately fight for WDC and this is just another example. I also disagree that Mark has shown nothing. 18th to 3rd in China shows a lot more than cruzy uncontested victories up front.
You guys don’t have to school me on how F1/Testing work as I haven’t missed a race in over 20+ years ;] It is only the forth round and when you have two drivers that are both adequate and in a good position to fight for the WDC then they should both be treated equally and should both have the same opportunity to run upgrades else it is a farcical and not a fair fight. I wonder how it would go down if Lewis only had the upgrades in Melbourne & JB didn’t…
I also think it is very naive to think that teams don’t pull shifties. Every year there is at least one dodgy situation that doesn’t quite sit right with the fans. The recent crash gate shows the lengths teams will go to win and protect there million dollar investments. RBR is nursing Vets bubble and are more than happy if Mark doesnt win all year else they could find themselves in another awkward situation like they were last year.
Whilst we are on the topic of parity I also think the rules are unfair for heavy drivers. I still cannot understand how Vets can have some 17KG more ballast to play with and distributed on his car compared to Mark. In a sport that comes down to the most minute measurements this rule still seems odd to me. I just wonder if the qualy results in Japan & Korea would be any different if this rule was cleaned up. I think all drivers should be weighed prior to each session then ballast should placed in a generic location(under race seat) which when added to the drivers weight should all equate to an even 100KG.
I want to see drivers & team mates being beaten by talent, not machinery and inconsistent rules.14th May 2011, 17:09 at 5:09 pm #168740
Also if RBR only had parts for one car (Vets), pathetic and more evidence to support favoritism towards Vets.14th May 2011, 17:05 at 5:05 pm #16873914th May 2011, 16:38 at 4:38 pm #168737
Firstly RBR have shown favoritism in the past to Vets on more than one occasion. What makes you think this could be any different?
Secondly a win over Vets does make a difference, physiologically and also on the scoreboard. Points are points. If it makes no difference then he and all might as well not show in Spain.
Thirdly Newey doesn’t call all the shots. Formula1.com are reporting that Webber did not run the upgrades in which were supposedly worth up to 3 tenths. Makes no sense to me why he wouldn’t have the opportunity to run them. Can you prove he did run the upgrades?14th May 2011, 8:20 at 8:20 am #168735
A fair point but I am still sceptically… I think it shows once again that RBR did not want Webber to have the upper hand over Vets. If true i wonder who’s decision this is. Webber should have enough credit & say to take the gamble to run the new parts… I just wonder how this would have been handled if Webber put it in the wall.
