But does the lack of testing really save money? The cash they would have spent on track testing gets spent on simulation, bench testing and wind tunnels, which is not only less accurate then testing the parts on […]
Ha why stop there?
He prefers a long stint but this year he’s had to stop for fresh rubber more often.
He’s popular with the ladies because like in the championship, he finishes second.
He never has to worry […]
@atticus-2 I suppose they might not have known about the incident until it was too late although you’d think they’d have been told by someone pretty quickly. The other possibility is that they didn’t think there […]
@atticus-2 The deadline for a team to protest had passed but the FIA had until the end of November to review the race if new information or evidence came to light. Ferrari sent a letter asking what the FIA’s […]
I think the bigger issue is if teams like Ferrari and McLaren believe there is some sort of collusion between RBR and STR (or the potential for collusion) then it might encourage them to get some leverage with […]
@fluxocillin7 that’s interesting. I guess Red Bull could have an argument that the KERS needs to by cycled every so often for reliability reasons, which could be plausible based entirely off how often their […]
@prisoner-monkeys sorry for the slow reply (thread’s moving fast). Thanks for the info about the Valencia penalties. As I mentioned in my original post I’m more interested in the possibility of Vettel using KERS […]
As much as I wanted Alonso to win the title, judging by what I’ve seen and read here I don’t think Vettel will get penalised for overtaking illegally. If flags overrule all other signals (light boards, in car […]

Didn’t Webber let Vettel past at one point in the race? I’m pretty sure I remember him moving over and they broadcast the radio message where Webber’s engineer said “thanks”.

I did a bit of a double take when I read the article because it said that it’s the first time Hulkenberg “led the race” rather “than led a lap”. I guess since they don’t record position changes over a lap, only as […]
I disagree. I thought the Ferrari was worth it’s 2nd place in the constructors.
a) The season was really competitive but that means there are plenty of teams to take points and punish you if you have a slow […]
I don’t think cash strapped Formula 1 teams are too lazy to go chase money, I think it’s more to do with the fact that they are so cash strapped they’re looking at their drivers as a source of income rather than […]
@maroonjack I wasn’t having a go. I had a very similar discussion in another thread recently and it is pretty interesting. Plus it still doesn’t change the main point you were making, that Hamilton would probably […]
It’s an interesting hypothetical but it also points out that there’s way too many variables.
Maybe McLaren had their reliability issues because they spent too much time and money on performance. If they’d […]

It has to go both ways. While some races seem like the playthings of billionaire rulers, they’re also forking out the race hosting fees to promote their country on the world stage and bring in tourists. If they’re […]
