DB-C90 commented on the post, AlphaTauri impressed with Tsunoda taking setbacks "in his stride" 5 hours, 30 minutes ago
My feeling is that Renault/Alpine have been counting on the field coming back towards them once budget caps bite rather than them making any genuine efforts to mover forwards towards them.
Since 2014, they have […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, Vettel mustn't let downturn "snowball out of control" – Webber 5 hours, 39 minutes ago
Pretty much just a statement of the obvious.
My only hope is that if Seb finds himself unable to get back some decent form, he gracefully retires with some dignity.
I’m confident he’ll work his butt off for […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, F1 introduce 'Women's wildcard' to Esports qualifying 5 hours, 43 minutes ago
I’m really struggling to see any positives from this as to me it’ll probably do more harm than good.
My guess is that any E Racers that are good at their craft and happen to be classified as women (probably a who […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, Turvey hits stationary cars in freak Formula E practice crash 3 days, 3 hours ago
Strange. Surely the practice starts and procedures were well gone over at a drivers briefing before they actually hit the track.
I’d kinda expect that the driver concerned might end up sitting out the entire r […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, Williams will perform better at Imola, Latifi predicts 3 days, 10 hours ago
What’s with the “testing day” for Charles Leclerc – seems too much distance for a “filming” day and they look like normal 13” tyres so what exactly is he testing?
@johnrkh absolutely agree about cars for Aus. We’ll get what we’re given, but other than the EU, I still think that the other countries you mention are either too large in distances or nowhere near having the inf […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, Mercedes will sort car problems within three races, Budkowski predicts 5 days, 7 hours ago
I’m not so certain they will. If they’ve got an aero problem, and it seems they do, they also have very finite limits on wind tunnel and CFD testing this year, and I doubt they’ll spend money on developing somet […]
Nahh they’ll stick a speaker where the exhaust used to be and drive a v12 motor sound through a 2000 watt amplifier.
Sport over the decades has been littered with the bodies of so called great ideas driven by marketing people that led to their demise, as have a great number of companies.
I don’t have to worry about people r […]
@balue that’s not quite true.
Here in Australia they are fiddling with the rules for AFL and the NRL to enable much higher scoring “to keep the fans engaged” and have pretty much destroyed the skill of defen […]
What surprises me a lot is why hybrids have been discarded so quickly in favour of full EV.
Surely there would be a faster uptake for countries that don’t have the infrastructure for full EV, whether it be for […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, Mercedes warn development limits may lock in Red Bull's advantage this year 6 days, 3 hours ago
Why all the vitriol. I’ve been saying all year that teams won’t be able to just spend money on development for their 2021 cars because there’s a budget cap.
Couple that with the lower limits on wind tunnel time […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, How Honda achieved a win-win with its smaller and more powerful new F1 engine 1 week ago
@robbie It’s certainly heartening to see that the Honda PU appears to be, at the very least competitive, but my take is that for the first time in a long while RBR seem to have brought a much better chassis and […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, Haas "not putting in any effort" to do more than fight Williams this year 1 week, 1 day ago
If you were Haas or Williams, why would you spend any significant sums on this years cars which is just an iteration of last years. It’s not as if they really have the wherewithal to suddenly become massively c […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, 10 years of DRS: Should F1 wean itself off push-button passes? 1 week, 2 days ago
When it was first introduced, I wasn’t overly concerned, but as always F1 gets things wrong and then makes it worse.
These days it seems that they’re forever adding more zones and making them longer wherever the […]
You know, they could remove a couple more corners and we’d have pretty much an oval. Imagine how fast they could go then.
F1’s US masters would be so proud.
Going to be interesting over the next few weeks.
Everyone keeps saying teams will develop their cars to counter current imbalances and recover lost ground but are we forgetting that there’s a budget cap this y […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, Ocon: We need to extract the maximum from the car to score points 1 week, 5 days ago
They’ll certainly need to address their deficiencies if they want Alonso to stay happy. I guess they’re used to their PU being rubbished though :)
I lost a little respect for both RP (now AM) and Merc last year after I had some long discussions with some engineering colleagues about how possible/likely it would be to accurately reverse engineer a F1 car from […]
DB-C90 commented on the post, Mercedes strategy didn't catch us by surprise – Red Bull 1 week, 5 days ago
I agree their pace was good and didn’t say it wasn’t. – I just think RBR had assumed that it would drop off badly near the end because of the length of the stint they had committed to as part of their “strategy” & […]
