F1 requires lots of engineers because it’s complicated. Also most of the telemetry analysis is done back at the factory. The race team has some engineers but there are far more looking at the data in England, […]
Villeneuve is thinking too simplistically. I’m not entirely sure that Ferrari would be in the same place today if they had retained the Alonso/Räikkönen pairing. Alonso from all appearances is very detrimental to […]
Lord Stig commented on the post, Byrne returns to guide Ferrari back to winning ways 6 years, 5 months ago
IIRC, in one of Ted’s notebooks he said that the cooperation is now closer as Nicholas Tombazis is gone and has been replaced by Simone Resta.
Alonso himself said that he was not going to catch Vettel and pass him. Here is what he said to Autosport: “Even if I could have overtaken Kimi a little quicker I had to save a lot of fuel in the last couple of […]
Lord Stig commented on the post, FIA to restrict team radio messages from next race 6 years, 10 months ago
This is one of the stupidest rule changes I have ever seen. This idea that it should be the driver alone is totally silly. This is a TEAM sport. All the members of a team are participants. Obviously the drivers […]
KERS and hybrid are the same thing. It is simply a difference in nomenclature and arguably a big failure in the marketing department at FOM and the FIA. The general public has heard of hybrid’s due to marketing by […]
I don’t think it will do anything to close the gap between the back and front of the field. Why would it? Also I doubt there will be almost no optimization for cold tires in terms of setup. Why would they? The […]
Lord Stig commented on the post, Why Ferrari's 'fans poll' findings can't be trusted 7 years, 3 months ago
While I would agree with your criticisms about Ferrari’s survey, any online survey is highly flawed. Anybody who has taken a basic statistics course would have heard the term voluntary response sample. Because […]
1. What country are you in (and state, if applicable)
2. Which channels broadcast F1 near you?
NBC Sports Network
3. Do they show all the races live or only a limited number (if so, how many?)
4. Do they also show qualifying live?
5. Do they also show practice sessions live?
6. If they are a subscription channel,…[Read more]
Obviously there will be more races in Europe than North America (Even as a US based fan, I don’t object to that being the case). However, you must consider that while the US is one nation, it is a very diverse and […]
There are 8 races in the European Union, which has a GDP of equal size to the US. It does a somewhat larger population than the US, but either way the US is a market which could be exploited by F1 far more. I […]
First, the F1.com site is run by FOM (commercial rights holder) not the FIA (governing body).
The “new” F1 app is much improved, it includes things like Team Radio and BBC 5 Live commentary. It is not perfect, however, and there were some bugs during the race (drivers simply disappeared from the timing pages and Massa was stuck in the middle of…[Read more]
Umm.. The holding companies that own FOM (Delta Topco, Delta Prefco, etc) do have a board of directors made up only of equity holders (CVC, JP Morgan, BlackRock, LBI, TRS etc). They have put Bernie in charge, and […]
$5 simply does not bring the same revenue to FOM. In 2013 the highest rated F1 program (5.15m viewers) was the German Grand Prix highlights which followed directly after Wimbledon final on the BBC. The average […]
