I know it’s only symbolic and personal but I’m just not going watch any F1 events in Saud Arabia. There’s just no rationalization that works for me re: holding events there. I don’t know how this will play out but […]
Forget about totals. Stewart is right: how can you compare totals when modern drivers have competed in so many more races. What matters more are percentages. With that in mind:
Fangio and Clark stand out. But […]
At the time, who would have thought that Pastor Maldonado would would be the last driver to win a race for Williams…
It’s not just the loss of the Williams but the loss of an independent team and the loss of […]
Kenny Schachat commented on the post, Ban on 'quali modes' to be delayed until the Italian Grand Prix 2 years, 1 month ago
I have reservations but I’m staying open minded about it. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this plays out.
Racing Point has stated that they redesigned many aspects of the chassis as a result of what they learned using the Merc inspired brake ducts. They said that it led them to understand how why the low rake design […]
The 2012 Ferrari was a very good car. But for some horrible luck (ex. Grosjean wiping out Alonso), they would most likely won the drivers title.
Using IndyCar as an example isn’t encouraging. There quite a few fans at one of the Indy Car races that were not wearing masks, etc. I tuned in to one the NASCAR races and it was much worse. IMO. Sad but true.
The regs state that the teams must provide their own IP for the “listed parts” (ex. the brake duct). IOW, even if Mercedes were willing to sell or give their IP to RP for the brake ducts, that’s not allowed by the […]
Kenny Schachat commented on the post, F1 shelves reverse-grid qualifying race plan again 2 years, 4 months ago
I’m generally a traditionalist and quite skeptical of the sprint race/reverse grid option. OTOH, this would be the ideal time to give it a try. We can speculate all we want but I can see ways that it might work […]
Kenny Schachat commented on the post, F1 will not cancel races if a driver tests positive for Covid-19 2 years, 4 months ago
F1 is in denial about this decision to begin racing in July. Ex. if one person tests positive and is quarantined, what about the other people that this asymptomatic person has already been in close contact with? […]
My first reaction was very negative but after thinking it over I think it’s worth a try. We need to honestly accept that F1 has a serious, and now long running, performance imbalance that isn’t likely to lessen on […]
“However, if you’re serious about getting into PC simracing at a competitive level, you might have to be prepared to shell out a little more for something more specialised.”
Could you provide info/reviews of s […]
While the details might not seem to be terribly drastic, in concept it’s 100% foreign to Formula 1 up till this point. I don’t like the idea of where this could go down the line. Is this just another way that the […]
Kenny Schachat commented on the post, "Clark – The Best of the Best" by David Tremayne reviewed 2 years, 5 months ago
I think Clark’s career speaks for itself in so many ways. Just look at his percentages per starts, if you have doubts.
Clark, Hill, Stewart and others give the lie to the declaration that a driver needs to be […]

Which model of Logitech Wheel & Pedals do you use?
>Merc may have been way off the pace with the new rules
We can all dream. We can all have our dreams crushed when Merc runs away from everyone else.
Seriously, I just can’t see any evidence yet that Merc […]
No one should be doing any business with Saudi Arabia for many reasons: treatment of women; violent repressive regime; so man other serious issues. How does this fit in with Liberty’s huge publicity push to be […]
I think that *percentages* of races won, poles, etc. are a decent measure of greatness. That standard places Fangio, Schumacher, Clark among the greatest. I’ll add that I personally believe that drivers that […]
Kenny Schachat commented on the post, Video: Verstappen drives first lap of new-look Zandvoort 2 years, 7 months ago
I understand the point re: the width AND the length of the cars. Obviously, the length of the cars is also a critical factor in overtaking. The current cars are also too long and that makes it very difficult to […]
