Unjustifiable penalties on Rosberg? Simply not braking and turning in when you already lost the lead and run the guy that just overtook you off track?
It doesn’t happen a whole lot since most F1 drivers have […]

Why? Have you ever seen an interview with Hamilton? He really does come over as a very amiable person.

Ecclestone never offered the teams a cut. He told them they should have bougth the shares themselves.
As if the teams had gotten the same deal from Mosley. I don’t know how or how much Mosley was paid, but […]

Rosberg wasn’t beating Hamilton. As Fudge Kobayashi already explained, it was the “lopsided reliability” Hamilton had an issue with. Rightly so.
Hamilton didn’t have any issue with Button scoring more points […]

Red Bull only let Webber do his thing in the first few seasons. That was clearly over when they stabbed Webber in the back during that Silverstone race and after that he was clearly the No2 driver. No say in car […]

“But is it a realistic solution?”
Yes it is.
Just as the technical regulations would have seemed untenable at first, but the FIA does take a reasonable good stab at it.
Even if they don’t get it 100% air […]

Kovalainen and Rosberg were actually quite well matched in GP2. Up until the last race weekend at least.
And we all know Rosberg was massively flattered by all the technical difficulties Hamilton has had over […]
Regarding the QOTD, when Hamilton was contracted by McLaren he was also though to be a lightweight. Especialy Alonso was rather vocal that he wanted someone better as his team mate to help advance the team as a […]
Patrickl commented on the post, Has F1 hit ‘peak penalties’? Fewer sanctions in 2016 1 day, 12 hours ago
Wow making an issue about how corner cutting after the start should be penalized the same as later during the race? How many drivers go off track at any F1 race start and how many of those are penalized?
I know it’s the agenda that this blog keeps pushing through our throats, but it staggers belief people really think handing Sauber a few tens of millions is going to change anything?
Or to blame DRS for the […]
Vettel had asked for that rule change (interpretation change) to stop moving in the braking zone, so he deserved to get penalized for breaking it so obviously.
You are also mistaken that being on the racing […]
He wasn’t behind a backmarker. He was racing Bernoldi for position.
But yeah someone else might have gone for a nice overtake instead.
I don’t think that should be the norm for backmarkers though (by […]
Patrickl commented on the post, Does Ocon ‘know how to deal with Verstappen’? Maybe not 2 weeks ago
The only way to deal with someone intent on crashing rather than being overtaken is to let the crash happen a few times. Especially with the stricter interpretations, Verstappen will learn quickly.
Ocon and […]
Patrickl commented on the post, FIA ‘should equalise engines if Mercedes aren’t caught’ 3 weeks, 5 days ago
“The problem is that with the restrictions, we will end up working in very limited areas to make the car competitive.”
Yes Marichonne, thats exactly why a budget cap WOULD work instead of the nonsensical “cost […]
True, Kvyat performed very poorly after he was demoted. Sainz gets praised a lot, but he tends to move backwards during a race from his starting grid slot.
STR had the worst engine though, so at anything than […]
There are plenty of manufacturers who would not mind spending 200 million or 300 million, but spending about half a billion per year is too much for them.
It’s not just that a budget cap would level the playing […]
With massive help from FIA, by being in the fastest car and by having Ferrari mess up the sister car for Raikkonen. Besides, by now it’s more clear that Raikkonen also was somewhat overrated.
