James commented on the post, 'Longer-term we'd very much like to phase out DRS if we can' 3 months, 2 weeks ago
The problem most of us have with DRS is that it leads to boring motorway-style passes because it increases straight line speed. Rather than removing drag down the straights, would it be feasible to instead add to […]
James commented on the post, Rate the race: 2021 Italian Grand Prix Sprint Qualifying 11 months ago
I don’t think I’ve rated a race below a 4 or 5 before because I like watching cars going round in circles, but I gave that one a 2 as I would prefer to have not watched it.
My main problem with it is that it is […]
Scratch that – I can see Ricciardo being able to push beer with that big grin of his. But he’s probably the exception.
You’re right – during the wet practice session at Paul Ricard, BBC 5live asked Ric […]
James commented on the post, Red Bull turns back to reluctant Renault as Ferrari decline engine deal 6 years, 10 months ago
Bernie Ecclestone’s first rule of doing business is to always have other options in place. Every time he does a deal he will play two parties off against each other, preferably with some curveballs or threats to […]
@kingshark Interesting article here about how Alonso adapted completely to the Michelin tyres in his Renault days, then had to revert back to a ‘normal’ driving style very quickly when he joined McLaren. […]
I can’t say I was excited before this race as the background situation of the missing teams rather took the attention away from the job at hand. I wasn’t any more excited after qualifying, as the cars at the front […]
9. That’s all I really want from a race – great wheel-to-wheel action, several teams with similar pace, a couple of young chargers on the podium and some doughnuts.
They don’t need to improve the show, because […]
James commented on the post, Make your 2013 Spanish GP predictions to win prizes 9 years, 3 months ago
Tough prediction. I imagine both drivers from Ferrari, Lotus and Red Bull will be disappointed if they don’t reach the top 5, and the drivers from Mercedes and Force India will be hopeful of getting in there too. […]
It certainly seems like there isn’t much point in Lewis getting to know the current team members! Lewis will only really be seen to fulfill his potential at Mercedes if he builds a team of great people around […]
The BBC have now run with this, apparently corroborated independently from their in-house Mercedes speculator, Eddie Jordan. They also claim Ross Brawn and Nick Fry are on their way out, and that Paddy Lowe had […]
Woo, I got a prize! I didn’t see it coming at all, I got too caught up in the race action to think about it :) Thanks Keith!
Also, kudos to @Andy2k12 for the accuracy of the pole position time. I was 260 times […]
So, judgement day is here. I’ve tried to convince myself that Sebastian would be a worthy champion – that streak of four wins is testimony to how easily he racks up points when the going is good – but in my heart […]
James commented on the post, Polls show fans more concerned about DRS than tyres 10 years, 1 month ago
However, in basketball there is no disadvantage to being behind (except a possible psychological effect if a drubbing is occurring), whereas in F1, the car behind is handicapped. Using your analogy, the hoop of […]
It would be good for the fans, of course, if the penalty was only applied to the team and not Lewis. However, I think it’s only fair that the penalty is applied to everyone on that side of the garage, as F1 is […]
Another great article, Keith, thanks. Here’s my take:
Let’s face it, McLaren did deserve a penalty. There were three mistakes they made, each of which would have prevented this from happening:
1) Refueling […]
