Drivers don’t make the cars faster, but some drivers are able to get more out of a car than other drivers. Some cars are just more difficult to drive than others.
However, one has to wonder what else is […]
CashNotClass commented on the post, Hamilton hunts down Verstappen to win Spanish Grand Prix 1 day, 7 hours ago
Exemplary effort by Mercedes and Hamilton. They simply outplayed Red Bull on pretty much all fronts. Still, it’s a bit of an anticlimax to see it all come down to a dull DRS pass. Nobody will remember such an […]
CashNotClass commented on the post, Hamilton takes 100th pole by hundredths from Verstappen 2 days, 7 hours ago
Quite interesting to see how both Alonso, Vettel and Ricciardo are getting to grips with their new teams and cars relative to their teammates. It’s hard to draw too many conclusions now, but Vettel is almost […]
CashNotClass commented on the post, Perez's performance "really coming together" at Red Bull – Horner 5 days, 7 hours ago
It’s not meant as an insult to Verstappen. Verstappen and Horner are quite vocal about seeing this year as the first time they really have a shot at fighting Mercedes for the title. That requires a different […]
CashNotClass commented on the post, How Hamilton's one-shot overtakes handed him a tyre life advantage 6 days, 5 hours ago
“He also often doesn’t keep trying lap after lap. He’ll just sit there and then takes the opportunity.”
This kind of goes hand in hand with the way modern F1 is. To get the maximum performance out of a car u […]
I can see Hamilton honestly thinking that. Hamilton and Vettel were in the same title battle in 2010, 2012, 2017 and 2018. Their careers are inextricably linked. Unfortunately for us fans, their respective titles […]
I can’t find the actual race weekend comments, but after the season Horner was quite philosophical about Vettel (Toro Rosso) ramming into Webber (Red Bull) at the 2007 Japanese Grand Prix, noting that on the whole […]
There is no need to imagine, such a scenario already happened and in very similar circumstances with a young driver racing for one of Mercedes’ many supplied teams. Toto Wolff even publicly admitted that he had […]
Leaving the track is not breaking the rules. It used to be, but that hasn’t been the case since a couple of years. Now drivers must ‘make an effort’ to stay on track, and determining whether they have is directly […]
Note that the rules about track limits were changed about five years ago. The FIA deliberately changed it to be more vague and now only demands that drivers ‘make an effort’ to stay on track. These kind of changes […]
Is the FIA going to stick to its word about bringing people to its tribunal who are being offensive to other drivers and officials? There was such drama last year after the race in Mexico. Or maybe they only care […]
CashNotClass commented on the post, Why Vettel is the real star of qualifying so far in 2017 3 years, 10 months ago
Ferrari might be the second best car now, but it wasn’t up until Canada. It was very close, and Ferrari should have won more races than they did (they misjudged the early-season safety cars rather badly).
Ferrari’s questionable strategic decisions have been one of the main talking points of their campaign this year. It’s hardly something new, or restricted to Räikkönen.
In the interest of keeping the competition fair Hamilton might want to give Vettel some pointers on how to best use a Finnish driver to aid his own championship campaign. He has some experience with that, after all.
Vettel is Ferrari’s lead driver and Hamilton is Mercedes. Why wouldn’t it be, these guys have proven over the years to be the best bet for a championship challenge.
Between Ferrari aiding Vettel’s race a bit […]
How is it typically American when quite a few of the US’ largest sports are far more “socialist” (never mind the impracticality of applying these labels to sports) than most large European sports?
It’s just […]
CashNotClass commented on the post, Bottas understands Mercedes may need to use team orders 4 years ago
That one-year contract is quite the incentive to “understand” these things just three races into the season.
But of course this makes total sense. The drivers are there for the team, not the other way around.
That’s not what Massa said. Massa said: “I told him earlier today, ‘Be careful with your words because you will have a Brazilian Grand Prix at the end of year and you will have to race there. So be careful what […]
Yeah no kidding! That doesn’t sound like Max Verstappen, or anyone speaking from the heart for that matter, at all. Some friendly person in PR probably Google’d “Official Apology” and changed the words a bit.
