When most of the drop off comes from wear (ie the rubber literally wearing down over a stint), as was the case with Bridgestone and Michelin, you get the type of more linear drop-off you’re describing. The only c […]

The real question is whether most of the degradation will come from wear (as in the Bridgestone days), or from thermal degradation. Pirelli have promised the former for 2017, but to date have only delivered the […]
I disagree, with more power and downforce (though even withe the drag from the wider tyres, they can produce downforce more efficiently with the lower/wider rear wing and significantly longer and taller diffuser, […]
I like Heineken and the deal seems like a good thing for the sport, on a number of fronts. But am I the only one that think it’s comically inappropriate to have your beer sponsor in your anti drink-driving ad? […]
I think it’s a must, especially with today’s tyres and limited engines. If you build a big lead by taking more out of your tyres than those behind you and you get a safety car outside your pit window, then […]
India was one of the few tracks that had the right corners and camera angles (especially the fast chicane in the middle sector) to show how fast F1 cars corner and change direction. The middle sector was mega and […]
Was really looking forward to 2017. Sport is being run by clowns. The new rule changes were intended to produce similar lap times as the mid 00s cars. Michelin and Bridgestone were able to produce tyres to […]
They can’t just ‘reduce aero’, tired of reading it. The cars are already too slow, hence to 2017 rule changed to gain ~ 5 seconds. What they can and should have done with the 2017 rules is increase the downforce […]

Stalking’s a very loaded term, I prefer to think of it as extreme liking.

Pretty sure it was the 2010 car he was referring too, but yeah good point.

Surely I’m not the only one to put together the fact that Minardi was bought by Red Bull (became Toro Rosso), who’s main team pioneered the modern implementation in 2010 and were generally thought to have gotten […]

I’m not sure what these numbers are supposed to mean?
Are you saying Lewis Hamilton has finished on the podium in 80% of his races and won 35% of them? If so, your maths and or the numbers you’re working with […]
