Agreed. I might have missed something but I didn’t hear Hamilton saying it was unfair. He was the first to congratulate Nico and was happy with his own race. There was no animosity on the podium either. If Lewis […]
Nigelstash commented on the post, Designed-to-degrade vs flat-out F1: Time to change tyres? 5 years, 8 months ago
Good summary of the arguments for each side, and quite a difficult call as nobody wants boring races with invincible tyres. In my opinion we should try to maximise the time that drivers are ‘on the limit’ which […]
I stopped enjoying this venue years ago. It’s just an exhibition, not really a ‘race’.
At any other track those last few laps could have been exciting, but if the best car on the fastest rubber can’t even […]
Nigelstash commented on the post, FIA to restrict team radio messages from next race 7 years, 1 month ago
I may be wrong, but surely this isn’t meant to cover tyre info, just things like how fast or on what line to approach a corner. Tyre and fuel strategy are an important part of the race and hearing those […]
You make a good case for every ranking, but in my mind, whilst Alonso’s achievements Ricciardo’s I think the red Bull has been a better car than the Ferrari on race days. Alonso would be number 1 for me. Bottas […]
And then asking him to let Rosberg through – looks like there’ll be fireworks backstage at Merc tonight.

So if both red cars crash out, do you switch off?
To me, following F1 from the late 80s, Williams are the team the evoke that ‘feeling’ and I’m glad to see them back near the front, but if they packed up and left […]
Based on qualifying:
Gap between best Mercedes driver and fastest driver from next best merc powered team was 1.4 seconds. (Hamilton to Bottas)
Gap between Fastest Red Bull and fastest driver from next best […]
In one more lap he would have had a chance to overtake. I doubt Lewis would have made it easy. If there were 5 more laps my money would be on Lewis to take the place back as Rosberg’s tyres faded. Still it’s a […]
Stupid idea, full stop.
It can only favour the big spending teams who can afford to develop the car right to the last race, Surely the drivers don’t want to be the one who won a championship on a gimmick. Would […]
Merc just shading it over Ferrari for me, but ask me tomorrow and it could be the other way around.
Most fascinating grid for years though – genuinely competitive pairings in the top teams and strength in depth […]
