Exactly this is what I mean. That Nico had already more or less settled in the position. So backing up too much could have put Ferrari in 2nd.
And for a certain logic I had rather see Nico finish second than […]
Generally I was supportive of the Pirelli’s tires. But China 2015 showed that because of tires we did not have close racing, unless you are in mid-field or car is of superior pace.
Also the long straights have a […]
I believe we are unfair towards Rosberg. Rosberg was in a very unique position. Hamilton could control his pace because he was in clean air. Sebastian could control his pace cause nobody was in a challenging 4th […]
I guess I explained exactly why Rosberg could not attempt to overtake Hamilton, but I answered with the bias of wanting to see Hamilton to win.
Rosberg challenging Hamilton could have given the advantage to […]
I think Rosberg was in a very unique position. Hamilton could control his pace because he was in clean air. Sebastian could control his pace cause nobody was in a challenging 4th position. Which leaves Rosberg, […]
I am going to quote Marko from the globe piece:
“We always look at input and output,” Marko said last month. “If the cost-benefit calculation isn’t right anymore, it’s not to say that we’ll continue […]
All those negative statements by Ferrari and its management let to purge of the top management. Now we see a new Ferrari whose team principal is being all positive and finding new ways to engage the […]
I thought the problem was aerodynamics for the Mercedes and not the PU. The car compared to Ferrari is hard on tires.
I have not heard anything about Mercedes PU needing more cooling. Given their engine […]
Also I think the incoming money as compared to tobacco advertisement days, have significantly reduced. And this loss of revenue have hurt them a lot.
FOM makes profit by milking the venues and getting the […]
I would say, RBR did not handle the PR with Renault as business partner well. Even when it was winning all, it was always If WIN = RBR responsible, If LOOSE = Renault weak.
If gives an impression that RBR wants […]
Take this scenario, No safety car:
HAM pits in L10: (assuming lead over VET < 2 sec) comes out 20 sec behind VET. Given the pace advantage of Merc, the next competitor car 4 before pitting could be atleast 10 […]
Even I supported Lewis moving to Merc, but did not expect to see him as world champion within 2 years and finishing ahead in the Mercs, the very first year.
McLaren was either creating a competitive car and then […]
In 2008 2009, Ferrari would have been logical choice. They won in 2007, nearly missed 2008. In hindsight RBR went to dominate, but choosing Ferrari was natural thing to do.
Even Vettel chose Ferrari over second […]
I guess you never read the article then. No where in the article Jenson was disrespectful.
In fact he says Vettel did a tremendous job.
He simply states that nobody expected Ferrari to be this competitive, […]
They do earn a lot of money. My seven generations will not earn with risking all life and limb what some of them earn in 1 year.
They are not earning that much cause of the risk, but because people wanna see or […]
All in all, I think Fernando has been the most unluckiest. Dragged Ferrari during its worst period giving Vettel a good fight during RBR domination days, and when Ferrari is competitive, he is out of the picture […]
A.D. commented on the post, Ferrari won't be "anything like as impressive" in China 7 years, 10 months ago
But Kimi did 3 stops and climbed from 11 to 4th and also nursed puncture. So I do think Ferrari showed some serious pace and it was not only because of tyre.
For me FI could not support Manor was sort of justified. It’s a grey area i know.
Because given the financial situation of the various teams, a part of me felt that it was better if that money gets […]
