ChrisJ commented on the post, New FIA administration to decide over sanction for Hamilton's prizegiving absence 1 month ago
Well, I guess “the” does not mean “he”…
None of this is about Mercedes, about Red Bull, Lewis or Max, this is all about the FIA and the real shame is that they can’t challenge themselves on that one.
It’s not about them so why does is take Mercedes […]
What Mercedes said is that their ICE is degrading much more than anticipated which transfers to power loss with added mileage. That’s the reason they changed it and took the corresponding penalty, that’s a […]
ChrisJ commented on the post, Bottas to start at the back again after another change of power unit 3 months, 3 weeks ago
How exactly does it make sense to “place him near Verstappen for tactical reasons”?
In my opinion it would even be more reasonable to change Hamilton’s power unit and take that penalty now.
ChrisJ commented on the post, Vettel encouraged by early signs of Ferrari downforce gain 1 year, 11 months ago
You do realise that today Bottas in testing did that lap time on C5 tyres whereas the pole lap for the 2019 Spanish Grand Prix was done on a set of C3s, right?
ChrisJ commented on the post, Radio message gave Leclerc hope Ferrari would give him the lead back 2 years, 4 months ago
The only thing that really baffles me is that almost everyone else missed the spot. Vettel came out in free air after his stop and with Leclerc bunching up the field in the first stint to protect them from the […]
This race came back to life after a rather dull middle part. Proof there that what it takes to spice things up is cars under different conditions at different race phases and strategic options. The fact that […]
I’m not at all questioning the SC or it’s purpose, I’m not even complaining. Maybe I didn’t use the word “artificial” appropriately here. But much like Bahrain 2014 which also got massively great ratings the […]
We should not forget in all the enthuasims for what was an exciting final 20 laps, if it had not been for the SC and the fact that we have the two compounds-rule the race would have remained as dull, with things […]
The biggest drawback from opposing the switch to bigger rims is that this in fact means Michelin won’t make a bid to become F1’s tyre supplier which is a pity. I still genuinely believe they could do a better job […]

Refuelling would end under-fuelling strategies (highlight RBR 2010-2013) that further monopolize the pole sitter.
Not even that, the 100kg of fuel per race rule was always going to stay regardless of in-race refueling.
ChrisJ commented on the post, Hat-trick for Hamilton after narrow pole position win 6 years, 9 months ago
They start the weekends with 13 sets and by the time qualifying starts there are 4 sets of primes and 3 sets of options left (except for maybe one used set of primes they’re usually all fresh). There’s also that […]
ChrisJ commented on the post, Hamilton closing on Vettel and Senna after 34th win 6 years, 10 months ago
Whenever a team scored a 1-2 in Melbourne (1996, 1998, 2000, 2004, 2009) it went on to also win the constructor’s title and the victorious driver won the driver’s championship that same year.
I wonder why everybody expected a big change in livery just because of McLaren’s new partnership with Honda. In the past a new engine manufacturer hardly ever meant a change in team colours, the title sponsor is […]
Actually I think that petrol/green is one of the most appealing elements and accents of their livery respectively their corporate design and I’d like their livery to have feature much more of it. I love Mercedes’ […]
