I’m guessing it makes no difference for the race. T9 is so fast that it is near impossible to overtake into T10, no matter the shape of the latter corner. Usually we had a few pieces of front wings in the air on […]
COTD: Yup. It’s creating “artificial” excitement, but you can see who is going to get the fastest lap by simply looking at the gaps between the Mercedes and Red Bull drivers. I hope the FIA will introduce a rule […]
Weird mistake from Kimi, but I can’t understand how Giovinazzi did not suffer a puncture.
KaIIe commented on the post, Mazepin penalised for holding up leader Perez despite late warning by team 6 days, 2 hours ago
Yup. After the first dozen or so laps Schumacher and Mazepin were running nose to tail, and the next time I looked at that duo the gap was a minute between them.
KaIIe commented on the post, F1 extends deal for Japanese Grand Prix to continue at Suzuka until 2024 2 weeks ago
Great news! While not the best track for racing with the modern cars, Suzuka should always have a place on the calendar – fast and unforgiving, like it should be.
I gave it a 7/10. While not overly exciting, it had a pretty clear narrative (i.e. Verstappen v Hamilton; can Hamilton climb back to P2 at the end) that made it quite fun to watch. Some more rain after the track […]
KaIIe commented on the post, F1 poised to confirm 'Sprint Qualifying' races as teams agree financial terms 1 month ago
As much as I like trying out new ideas, qualifying is not one of the things that should be changed.
I hope the round in Brazil goes ahead, and the championship will be decided on Saturday. That would be a […]
Interesting, I though they would simply use the existing road at the T9-10 chicane instead of redoing everything.
There also seems to be a recent trend of introducing higher speeds at tracks: Baku was hailed as […]

Good points in the article. I watched some of the races, and simply gave up trying to understand the format and instead just watched the action.
KaIIe commented on the post, Performance under pressure still Vettel's weakness – Berger 1 month, 1 week ago
“But [Vettel] never reacted very well on pressure.” Yeah, I don’t remember him winning two of his four championships at the last round. If that is not driving under pressure, I don’t know what is.
KaIIe commented on the post, Perez's Q2 stumble leaves Verstappen fighting Mercedes single-handed 1 month, 1 week ago
With a 4-tenth advantage, I can’t see Mercedes catching Verstappen. No matter what kind of strategy they try, there is no overturning that kind of pace differential. But I hope I’m proven wrong.
KaIIe commented on the post, Different track limits rules for qualifying and race in Bahrain 1 month, 1 week ago
Ah, the usual F1 thing of overcomplicating things. Based on this, they will change the track from quali to race as the “natural” limits change.
KaIIe commented on the post, Bahrain Grand Prix night race to be solar-powered from 2022 1 month, 2 weeks ago
“Is this actually going to power the whole circuit requirements, or just the lighting?” I think the official F1 site said that they would power all the functions of the track.
To my eye, there seems to be three categories this year: the good, the “meh”, and the uninspired or just poor design choices. The last one contains Alpine (you could have done much more with those colours!), Haas […]
KaIIe commented on the post, "Very extreme" driving style has helped me a lot – Perez 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Agree with COTD. The novelty value of seeing someone lap 5 seconds a lap faster than anyone else and hence passing everyone wears thin quite quickly.
Then again, if the job of GP2/F2 is to prepare the drivers […]
KaIIe commented on the post, F1 reveals "fastest ever street track" for Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 1 month, 3 weeks ago
It’s like Macao except with the walls in the style of Valencia’s “street” circuit, hence removing most of the challenge. Also reminds me of Baku, in terms of the same hype and length of the track.
And if this […]

I thought the title was a bit click-baity, but after reading the explanation for the change, I have no idea how you would condense that into a brief title.
Hopefully we wont be seeing that green thing on the […]
KaIIe commented on the post, Haas livery was designed before Russian flag ban was announced – Steiner 2 months ago
I sense some contradiction in these two sentences: “[t]he WADA restrictions forbid Mazepin and other Russian athletes from displaying the Russian flag and related symbols on their sports equipment for two years.” […]
KaIIe commented on the post, F1's sprint race plan enjoyed "great feedback from everyone" – Domenicali 2 months, 1 week ago
Regarding the quote from Leclerc, how does the sprint race allow attacking more? Surely the tyres will go away just as badly in a shorter race, and the dirty aero is still present.
