Jim Sharpe commented on the post, Red Bull's RB18 is closing on a record set by one of F1's greatest cars 3 months ago
Hmmm. Results don’t lie, I agree that this years RB was seriously dominant. What I’m surprised by is why anyone would think anything else could happen when ONE team exceeded the cost cap an all the others […]
“they could be disadvantaged by between 0.25 and 0.5 seconds per lap as a result of it”.
My seat of the pants human biased memory says their pace vs the rest of the grid in most races this season was at least […]
True, but it mainly focuses on wins. My (IMO only slight) embellishment to make a point also took into account how easily RB won their races this year. Their margin this year was frequently astounding enough […]
See my reply to @Adam above
Not just me. Take a look here
Seems odd to claim they received no benefit when the result this season was both championships and the most dominant car in F1 history. May be there is some other benefit they were hoping for.
$7M seems cheap to get the most dominant car in F1 history and dual championships this year. I don’t there is any team on the grid that wouldn’t be happy to pay a lot more than that for the result. Not that it […]
Jim Sharpe commented on the post, Mercedes "haven't made a huge amount of progress yet" – Russell 7 months, 2 weeks ago
IMO it’s a bit telling that they still apparently have no clue this far into the season, makes it seem doubtful for their chances of figuring it out the rest of the season, or ever with this car. I’ve said it […]
Lots of people complained when Hamilton/Merc won so many races that it made the sport boring. I’m a Hamilton fan but still enjoyed lots of the downfield races when he was cranking out victories. However, I find […]
I can’t but wonder if all those engineers that were recruited to other teams left a hole bigger that they care to admit to. They do seem completely clueless to the point that it seems more than just the budget cap.
Unfortunately with Mercedes perpetually clueless on how to fix their car (maybe all those people they lost actually did hurt more than Toto let on) and Ferrari in their continual self destruction mode, it will be […]
Hmmm…. First Bernie’s idea about sprinklers, now dodging terrorist missiles. What won’t the FIA do to spice up the “show” ;)
I’m sorry, but the only drivers welcoming this are the ones planning on doing the illegal overtaking since they will likely get away with more than they already are. IMO two steps backward and just as inane as […]
Jim Sharpe commented on the post, "Some strong areas" in new Alfa Romeo despite low mileage – Bottas 11 months ago
That’s not the way I see it. If it was “legitimate” there wouldn’t have been any changes made. 2021 will always need an asterisk. The fact that the broken system allowed it to happen doesn’t make it legitimate. […]
Jim Sharpe commented on the post, Bumpier tracks will reveal teams' true performance – Albon 11 months ago
Even more than bumpy tracks, I think how each car handles the higher curbs without trading significant downforce will be a key differentiator. I don’t have much hope for actual white line track limits this […]
Jim Sharpe commented on the post, Will F1's rules revolution succeed? 20 questions for the 2022 season 11 months ago
I agree 23 seems like a substantial stress on the teams. However, I don’t see it as much of a “watering down”, rather it does help reduce the significance of individual fluke results while still rewarding […]
