Dave commented on the post, Ferrari tried a last-lap 'Hail Mary' play for Sainz – but their rivals were ready 2 months ago
The last two points finishers were Zhou and Tsunoda. Based on the constructors championship and the relative pace of the cars, it probably made more sense for Aston Martin to take the points off a Ferrari and give […]
Dave commented on the post, Three crashes, one penalty: Did the Melbourne stewards get these calls right? 2 months ago
I don’t understand how for Sainz they can say: However, in this particular case, notwithstanding the fact that it was the equivalent of a first lap incident, we considered that there was sufficient gap for car 55 […]
Dave commented on the post, Alonso gets third place back after FIA cancels penalty 2 months, 2 weeks ago
The original statement when the penalty was issued said “They stated that what was agreed at the SAC meetings with the teams was that no part of the car could be touched while a penalty was being served as this […]
Dave commented on the post, Let F1 teams run two cars in testing – Russell 3 months, 2 weeks ago
Given that the costs of actually running the cars are pretty low when compared to all the other costs associated with testing (logistics, travel and accommodation of the team personnel, circuit hire, etc.) it […]
Dave commented on the post, Why Red Bull believe they could have won in France even without Leclerc's crash 10 months, 2 weeks ago
The Red Bulls were quicker in a straight line without DRS, but the gap was smaller with DRS. I’m guessing because Ferrari run a bigger rear wing than Red Bull, so when the DRS is open it minimises that difference […]
Dave commented on the post, Ferrari defend "proper and right" decision to pit Sainz after he passed Perez 10 months, 2 weeks ago
If Ferrari were sure he wouldn’t make it to the end, or at least not with enough pace to be 5 seconds ahead of George and Checo then it makes sense.
Their thinking is stay out, get P5, no chance of fastest l […]
Dave commented on the post, Hard tyres may have been wrong choice for final attack on Verstappen – Sainz 11 months, 3 weeks ago
A lot of comments piling on to the Ferrari strategists like it was an obvious call.
As the article says, they didn’t have another set of medium tyres to put on. Ferrari went into the race with the same number of […]
Dave commented on the post, Formula E reveals new, lighter and more powerful 'Gen3' car 1 year, 1 month ago
Looks much better in the video. Like a cross between a gen 2 car and an imperial star destroyer.
Also I think these show cars end up looking a lot better with the team liveries rather than the generic livery.
Dave commented on the post, 2022 Bahrain Grand Prix driver ratings 1 year, 2 months ago
He was in front, but he was on 11 lap old hard tyres that would have taken him to the end of the race. Norris was only 4 laps into his soft tyre stint that likely would have also taken him to the end of the race. […]
Dave commented on the post, Mercedes have "good legal basis" for appeal over Abu Dhabi GP – lawyer 1 year, 5 months ago
@clayt “can” and “must” are different, although @andyfromsandy chose to use “can” in his metaphor and 48.12 of the Sporting Regulations uses the phrase “will be required to”.
Dave commented on the post, Did F1 race control make correct decision over last-lap restart? 1 year, 5 months ago
I originally thought the same thing, although re-reading 15.3 I’m not so sure. 15.3 lists the following five matters where the Race Director has overriding authority:
a) The control of practice, sprint […]
Dave commented on the post, Verstappen is champion as controversial last-lap call leaves Mercedes seething 1 year, 5 months ago
I think the second paragraph of article 48.3 gives interesting context to all of section 48 in the sporting regulations.
It will be used only if Competitors or officials are in immediate physical danger on or […]

So Paul, there’s this judge I know who needs new tyres for his car. Think you could get some Silverstone spec Pirelli’s for him?

The pressure is starting to wear on him. I hope he doesn’t go anywhere near the cliff…
Dave commented on the post, Rosberg keeps win after yellow flag reprimand 9 years, 11 months ago
I’m getting sick of the race stewards leaving investigations until after the race then being too scared to change the outcome. One look at the purple sector time on the timing screen and one radio conversation […]

That first picture of di Resta with the helmet and hans device on the sidepod makes it look like he’s driving one of those 3 seater F1 cars.
Dave commented on the post, 2013 Canadian Grand Prix fans' video gallery 9 years, 12 months ago
For me it’s not just the fact they booed Vettel, but they booed during the German national anthem. That’s pretty poor form.
I’ve been to podium ceremonies where the winning driver is someone I don’t […]
Dave commented on the post, Mercedes test hearing set for June 20th 9 years, 12 months ago
The thing that would make that defence difficult is that the Mercedes race drivers took part in the test. Pirelli have Lucas di Grassi and Jaime Alguersuari as test drivers so they should have been able manage […]
Dave commented on the post, Montezemolo keen for Mercedes "prosecution" 9 years, 12 months ago
It’d be interesting if they did get a 2 race ban. Imagine a team that’s based in Britain and owned by a German company, with British and German drivers missing out on the British and German GP’s. I’d imagine […]
