Get Webbo back out there and he’d have some good competition. As we saw in Japan in 2007, having a bit of a chunder in his helmet doesn’t stop him.
It will be interesting to see how they go next week (the C4 will be the medium I believe).
Spot on – without a significant pace advantage, cars just couldn’t overtake one another. You can see it in the interactive lap chart posted on here – everyone from Stroll in sixth to Ocon in fourteenth just held […]

And even that 145kg weight (going up to 150kg next season, I believe) is because it’s a mandated minimum. They could get lower if they wanted to.

I don’t think that “getting worse” is accurate – he has been somewhat inconsistent, but he has outqualified Norris at three of the five races including and seemed to be getting to grips with the car in […]
Exactly – F1 is an engineering sport just as much as it is a driving sport. I suppose that people can go and watch Indycar if they want to see competition between drivers more than engineers, but frankly that […]
You’ll find that Red Bull comply with the rules as written. By definition, they aren’t “cheating” any more than Mercedes were “cheating” with their DAS, or McLaren were cheating with their F-Duct.
Self-extraction in a fire with the halo proved to be effective, which was good to see (certainly more effective than it would have been without the halo, because the fence would have taken Grosjean’s head off in that case).
The side and rear impact structures engage with the nose crash structure already – everything is already designed to do this. If the barrier fails like that, the fault lies with the barrier design.
It’s just journalistic convention – Dieter could have written us/we instead, but this is pretty normal.

@jureo Not sure why that would be a better option than the training he already does, especially given that fighter pilots don’t pull any lateral g.
@luigismen That sounds like a good strategy. The Renault PU doesn’t seem to be giving too much away to the Mercedes now anyway, and a stronger technical partnership that reduced their costs would be handy (though […]
This is a pretty poor effort at trolling.
@nullapax It’s why Newey streamlines his bonce.
@phillyspur Yep – I suspect that you’re right that one of the manufacturers could build such a tyre if requested. The interface between the two compounds would be the real trick, I imagine – you wouldn’t want the […]
@phillyspur To build such a tyre, and also ensure that’s it’s capable of fast laptimes, would probably require it to have no heat-related degradation. They might be able to manage that better with the larger […]
@s2g-unit Remember Indianapolis 2005? I do. Michelin didn’t exactly do a sterling job, and they weren’t even making a tyre to spec.
@phillyspur That’s what we got at Silverstone 1, and then everybody complained that “exploding tyres are dangerous”. Maybe the performance drop was too much for some people.
@chimaera2003 I don’t know that removing the batteries would help, considering how much more efficient they have made the power units. They use about 100 kg of fuel per race nowadays at the most fuel-hungry […]

Talk to Schoeller, or any other fabric mill that has IR-reflective surface treatments (similar to coldblack) for black fabrics.
