@kingshark on safety, I’d rather say yes. They’ve done the right things since Senna.
I don’t think there’s a competitive advantage anywhere here, so teams can agree on all terms and conditions because it’s not […]

@melthom I’m not for one moment underestimating the seriousness of Massa’s crash but I think it’s important not to overlook the fact that not only did he survive it but his injuries were such that following a […]
So far the Russian Grand Prix weekend is shaping up much like the three that preceded it: Mercedes are talking up the threat from Ferrari, but the red team have tripped up long before race day.
“I think we’re […]

@craig-o The “obligation to supply” sounds interestingThe devil really is in the detail of the regulations on that one or we’ll have teams trying to play the rule book to tip Mercedes’ hand into giving them engines.
Sebastian Vettel is set for a five-place grid penalty at the Russian Grand Prix after changing his gearbox.
Ferrari has changed his gearbox ahead of this weekend’s race, meaning his previous unit has not […]

@omegadetra Hamilton himself said he is willing to take the risk, so why not let them take that risk drivers have taken for decades now?
F1’s new, wider tyres for 2017 won’t be tested until next year, according to Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery.

Keith Collantine commented on the post, Rosberg seven-tenths up on Hamilton in first practice 16 hours, 30 minutes ago
Would love to see Ocon in an F1 car. Have always been pretty indifferent about Palmer. Dropping him this quickly would be brutal. He did have a shocker in China, though. The pressure is on.

I asked Pirelli for exactly this information pre-season but they say they’re not able to supply it. However the text does refer to what the top ten drivers used.

I really dislike Ferrari’s brace and I really dislike Red Bull’s windscreen. It has nothing to do with aesthetics, because aesthetics in a discussion like this are (or at least should be) completely irrelevant. I […]
Nico Rosberg got his Russian Grand Prix weekend off to a strong start by lapping seven-tenths of a second faster than team mate Lewis Hamilton.
Rosberg, who took pole position for this race last year, used a […]

@petebaldwin To get meaningful data from this test the helmet would have to be positioned at the upper limit of where the driver’s helmet could be within a cockpit as defined by the rules.
Keep in mind that […]
