Michael commented on the post, Did the FIA get Red Bull's penalty for 2021 budget cap breach right? 4 months, 4 weeks ago
@davids this is not some playground where they are supposed to make sure that all children get equal time and learn from their mistakes. If anything, Red Bull has now stolen 3 championships and there’s no […]
chimaera2003 commented on the post, 'This shouldn't be part of the DNA of racing': Drivers tire of grid penalty confusion 6 months, 1 week ago
@davids I think your point about a grid drop being a weak deterrent is valid. Especially since the new rules allow greater opportunities to follow and overtake compared to the previous set of regulations. The way […]
David BR commented on the post, Piastri joins McLaren for 2023 as FIA's contract board rules against Alpine 6 months, 3 weeks ago
@davids Seems to fit. @bernasaurus I guess they felt that they only move left was to try bouncing a young driver into agreeing to race for them by making it sound done and dusted. I can see Alpine’s side to some […]
bernasaurus commented on the post, Piastri joins McLaren for 2023 as FIA's contract board rules against Alpine 6 months, 3 weeks ago
@davidS that’s interesting and kinda perhaps makes a bit of sense. Regardless of what the contract looked like, or whether it was Otmar or Rossi or whomever. Alpine look like idiots, bullies – incompetent? This a […]
Tifoso1989 commented on the post, Ferrari raise "concerns" as FIA makes hiring from Mercedes 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Jean Todt was sacked by Marchionne who was FIAT CEO – mother company of Ferrari at the time before the split – after winning both championships in 2007 because of his spending habits. He didn’t have any […]
Mashiat commented on the post, F1 enjoyed "best season for 40 years" in 2021 – Horner 1 year, 1 month ago
@davids Good title fight, generally not as exciting when looking at individual races. How many true battles for the lead did we have for any race? USA, Germany, and China are the only races where there was a […]
bosyber commented on the post, F1's plan to end military flypasts won't stop Red Arrows flying at Silverstone 1 year, 2 months ago
Nah Adrian, it’s probably much more cynical so the FIA can say they did something while still, as @davids mentions, not actually changing much at all.
Jeffrey commented on the post, Rate the race: 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix 2 years, 5 months ago
@davids Yeah and also retiring the boss’s son because they wanted to prevent him from embarrassing himself again by spinning out…. Those were his literal words. Astonishing really.
Meanwhile Perez, despite […]

@davids Amazing how almost all of those designs are just awful in regards to being recognizable. Mostly just a combination of red and white plus blue or orange.
hobo commented on the post, FIA cancels plan to impose standard F1 brakes in 2021 3 years, 6 months ago
@davids – I disagree with part of your assessment on standardized parts. Moving into a budget cap scenario, to me it makes sense to standardize some parts to reduce spending on development in certain areas and […]
Urvaksh commented on the post, Vettel will be unhappy with 'Barrichello role' at Spa – Rosberg 3 years, 6 months ago
When exactly did Red Bull ask/require/direct Webber to move aside for Vettel? Other than that one time in Brazil 2012 after Webber had already blocked Vettel at the first corner? List the instances please @davids
StefMeister commented on the post, No change to qualifying in 2020 as 'Q4' plan fails to find support 3 years, 11 months ago
@davids I’ve always found single car/lap qualifying to be quite dull be it if it’s the whole field as F1 was doing in 2003-2005 or just the top 10.
The way it is now you may not see every lap or every sector […]
Robbie commented on the post, Alonso: Hungaroring isn't a strong track for McLaren any more 4 years, 8 months ago
@davids I think even achieving one WDC in F1 puts a driver in a very unique and elite group in the annals of motor car racing. Not sure if you are a big fan of F1, but you are doing it a disservice by reducing […]
Tricky commented on the post, Australian Grand Prix cost government £56 million last year 5 years ago
Thanks to @davids (below) for posting the financial reports. The $30.6m financial assets is what is written as “Change in fair value of derivatives recognised through cash flow hedge reserve” – which hardly helps […]
Atticus commented on the post, First onboard lap of Baku City Circuit revealed 6 years, 9 months ago
@davids In terms of passes, it’ll surely deliver. Turns 18 and 19 will be flat-out (Turn 20, the little kink after the left-right flick as well, obviously) and so it’s indeed a massive 2km long straight.
It’s a […]
Sensord4notbeingafanboi replied to the topic Red Bull Honda in the forum Formula One 7 years, 12 months ago
Renault has implied a possible drop out but they’ve also been eyeing either STR or SFI. Honda may not be in tip top shape right now but they’ve set themselves for the long haul besides there’s history backing up my thesis. Honda re-entered F1 in the 80’s with Spirit, proving their worth and moving up the grid to Williams to whom they were loyal,…[Read more]
Optimaximal commented on the post, Mercedes want Hamilton deal before season begins 8 years, 1 month ago
@davids The problem with the free expression logic is that once one manufacturer latches onto the best plan (case in point – Mercedes), the rest will just copy them (case in point – Honda) and it all ends up […]
Fer no.65 commented on the post, F1's Strategy Group is a cartel, smaller teams claim 8 years, 4 months ago
God, no, @DavidS
We had that sort of thing here in one of the national series and it’s incredibly, INCREDIBLY, confusing and worst of all, sometimes even each cup can be decided before the last race of the cup, […]
Travis commented on the post, F1's Strategy Group is a cartel, smaller teams claim 8 years, 4 months ago
@DavidS I really like that idea, it would be like having five mini seasons within a season. Many series have tried things like it (ex. NASCAR’s Winston Million, Indycar’s Triple Crown of 500 mile ovals, Tudor […]
