Bad, very bad!5th August 2010, 21:39 at 9:39 pm #134318
Hello my name is Frank and I am an F1 addict.
I now live in California, USA. I will never forget the day, I was first hooked on F1 on a dark and gloomy day in good old Lancashire, in a town called Bolton…
I have been a Ferrari fan, though right now I am pissed at Ferrari for openly enforcing team orders. Massa should have won the race. I remember what happened with Rubens & Schumacher in 2002 also, it left the same disgusting taste, I was put off. But this time it felt worst. I hope they keep the ban on team orders and teach Ferrari and other teams a good lesson to stop messing with the race results.
Anyhow, now that is off my chest, I have to say last few years F1 has been a lot more than the races at the track. I enjoy watching drivers push their cars to the limit and race.
Let F1 drivers race!5th August 2010, 17:10 at 5:10 pm #143158
xtophe, yeah but, it would have worked for Vettel too. Alonso or Massa may not have been able to open up a big gap like Webber did, but they would have been doing faster laps, unless Ferrari was harder on the softs.4th August 2010, 16:49 at 4:49 pm #143150
Good points guys! Thanks for the welcome Steph, good to know there are other Massa/Ferrari fans here.
Right, Webber did say his front left was almost gone when he came in. So yeah I think he could not have gone much longer without starting to loose time at some point. I guess it was the knee-jerk reaction to SC people pitted and I guess Webber was left out since they did not want to stack them at the pits. In the past I have seen this kind of driving from Schumacher so many times. Webber loved it, when he lapped Schumacher he had to call in say it felt good.
Anyhow, Martin Brundle comments on tires, yeah we do not have BBC F1 here, I wish we did. We watch F1 on Speed channel, it is not so bad but a lot of times I notice things during the race the commentators never mention or may be notice. There are a lot of things to talk about for the commentators to cover in detail, but no such luck.4th August 2010, 16:37 at 4:37 pm #142972
pablo, it is still racing, what would you call it if a car is 2/1000 seconds per lap faster than another car, not racing, just passing? Even a car is at least 800/1000 seconds per lap faster than another car (Vettle vs Alonso) it is not so easy to pass, especially at Hungary. It is racing and people are making a big deal out of it. Ruben’s has a wound (letting Shumacher win the race in 2002) and I think that wound was reopened with the recent events. I cannot blame Rubens for feeling the way he does. But the drivers are on track to race, not worry about how hard they should fight. Do you think likes of Webber, Massa, Alonso and Hamilton are going to worry about how dangerous it may be? I hope not.3rd August 2010, 23:42 at 11:42 pm #142970
Well how come nobody is coming out and saying we are talking about racing, not playing Bocce Ball at the gentlemen’s club. What should the drivers do when somebody is trying to over take? Just say, “after you sir, you seemed to be a in a hurry, go right ahead, I will lift off so it is easier on you”. This is racing! Schumacher raced with the likes of Senna and Mansel, Berger, Piquet and so on. Did you guys see this video:
Webber was going for Massa’s throat, he would have gotten him if Massa had not passed him by then. There are many more likes this
Bottom line, I want to see racing, not pussyfooting on the track!
