I understand where he is coming from but I see no need for racecar drivers to feel guilty for doing their job they love. Sure, we all as individuals should act responsibly, but it is up to politicians and industry […]
@Jerejj I am OK with that :-)
On no DRS restrictions…wouldn’t it be the same as nobody having DRS? Id its use is limited the drivers would really need to think about it, especially in combination with battery charges.
Nobody would be forcing the teams to send out cars in unsafe condition, would they? This rule (as well as those others) are on the books for about 15 years…racing was doing just fine for 100 years before that. […]
Agreed about Zandvoort (my FB post was done well before that) this is how it used to be. But for one reason or another, we have those large paved run-off areas now and rules are needed. Say there are corners that […]
I’m in…but good luck to us. I too have been saying this for years and even discussed it with Charlie Whiting. He was 100% for No.1 but said teams were strongly opposed. But he loved DRS and was not in favor of […]
THREE THINGS I WOULD CHANGE ON DAY 1 (if somebody finally put me in charge)
1. Teams should not be permitted to work on cars during red flag periods. Currently, unlimited amount of work could be performed on […]
The truth is F1 should never had expanded to Saudi Arabia in the first place. This year’s cancellation of the Russian GP underlines that fact even more.
Forgive me if I am yawning. The main thing here is the fact that the most absurd red-flag and safety-car rules are still in place. They were an absolute curse of (primarily) 2021 season and inevitably will create […]
Aleš Norský commented on the post, F1's sprint race rules change won't end pole position confusion 5 months, 4 weeks ago
That is why my statistics (http://www.gpfactsandnumbers.com/statistics/) differentiate between the fastest qualifying lap and pole position…always did.
I am tired of hearing over and again that the stewards and race director have a “very difficult job”…so what? Lot of people don’t have it easy and if they can’t handle it, someone else maybe can. I don’t […]
Ridiculous. Brings memories of the Korean track a decade ago…although if I remember that one was homologated at least few more days in advance.
Aleš Norský commented on the post, Should Formula 1 have the same stewards at every race? 8 months, 2 weeks ago
There needs to be permanent Chief Steward with final decision-making authority over the assisting stewards. With 20+ race seasons, maybe there could be two or maximum three of these Chief Stewards, who would […]
So, it took the stewards 22½ hours to decide they are not going to review the turn 4 incident at all. If they did review it, I am sure it would have taken just fraction of that time.
Inconsistency of steward’s decisions has been an issue for years, whatever the FIA says. Usually, they seem rather strict and only “let them race” when it is convenient for the current situation. Rationale for […]
Maybe you’re right, but it only highlights how inconsistent FIA is on these racing incidents, because there were plenty of penalties dished out for similar incidents earlier in the year…
Aleš Norský commented on the post, Hamilton: Bottas 'left the door open for Verstappen' at the start 9 months, 1 week ago
He is 100% correct. For some reason Bottas seemed to defend against Hamilton, keeping both their cars on the dirtier side and leaving clean path wide open to Verstappen, who was then able to carry more speed and […]
That is a good point @DieterRencken and very true as well. The season had basically 365 days, therefore African and South Pacific races were held over the winter when today we have a 4-month break. Which […]
