@aks-das Actually no. Reducing downforce would increase straight line speeds as there would be less force pushing the car down. But cornering speeds would be reduced due to said lesser downforce, which can be made […]
@aks-das I think that Kimi was waiting for the final laps to attack Seb, at that moment he has 4 laps younger tires, if Max hadn’t broke down last 4 laps would have been a battle between the Ferraris.
@aks-das – But Hamilton didn’t lost Rosberg 2nd place. He backed him up a little, protected his tyres and took a bit of life out of Rosberg’s. This meant there was no challenge for the lead but also allowed for […]
If for RBR, publicity is the main goal then maybe they should not talk down on F1 or themselves.
If publicity was RBR main goal they could have done an F1 project like Virgin did: create a team, but […]
Simultaneously Renault themselves did not market well on the basis of their participation in F1.
Renault shot themselves in the foot with their Energy F1 project. They want to be seen as the defacto EV […]
But this is not what I was referring to. I was taking the SC as a given, and then checked whether it would have been better for Merc to stay out as some have claimed. And in this case, the scenario you […]
All in all, I think Fernando has been the most unluckiest.
I wouldn’t really call it unlucky. If he had kept his calm in 2007, he could have won 2 WDC’s on the bounce at McLaren.
He also had the […]

@aks-das Look lap by lap, and you will see why RAI went from the back to 4
@aks-das So in terms of criticizing Webber I would say in part that is justified in that he was in WCC winning cars, but that goes to show you that even WCC winning cars don’t suit all drivers, and MW just […]
Robbie commented on the post, Pressure from Ricciardo led to Vettel exit – Horner 8 years, 1 month ago
I had just responded to the @aks-das full comment on the other board and will respond in kind here. In the MS/Ferrari days MS was the clear and contracted number one on the team. After the Austria 02 debacle […]
Robbie commented on the post, F1 wins as Mercedes lets Hamilton and Rosberg fight 8 years, 1 month ago
@aks-das Based on how it was at MS/Ferrari I would agree as no driver has ever been a more clearly defined number 1 than Schumacher, but then when MS went to Mercedes it appeared that NR was free to race with him. […]
Optimaximal commented on the post, New engines to blame for teams collapsing – Horner 8 years, 2 months ago
@aks-das The point is, Jordan and co filled out their coffers with money from sponsors – Jordan was basically funded entirely by Benson & Hedges for the last 6 years of its existence. F1 was also considerably less […]
