Alex Brown commented on the post, W Series graduates won't reach F1 without talent to succeed – Coulthard 2 months ago
I’m probably wrong, but I feel like Coulthard is talking here like it’s the Red Bull young driver program: a bit all-or-nothing. Loads of F1 drivers have had chance after chance. I hope the women don’t get written […]
Alex Brown commented on the post, Kubica: Staying in F1 will be the hardest part of my comeback 2 years, 7 months ago
If he isn’t fast enough that’ll be no shame on him, but would reflect badly on Williams.
I marshal bike trackdays and BSB tests and if we have, say, 15 fallers in a day, one or two might pick up minor injuries (dislocated fingers, sprains). Serious injuries are rare, maybe 5 to 10 this year (complex […]
Alex Brown commented on the post, How much quicker did Formula E's first generation get? 2 years, 11 months ago
Have FormulaE done the impossible and written technical regs that keep costs down, allow innovation, promote manufacturer involvement alongside privateers and create good racing? It’s a shame that many people […]
I feel like the hyperboost and tyre wear are kind of at odds with each other. Energy management is one thing because with the excellent graphics we can follow it, hut tyre wear is less visible. And I think the […]

It’s so good to see a consolidated vision of how the series will oh no wait. Sticking plaster.

Winglets on brake ducts should already be illegal under the ‘all aerodynamic surfaces must be sprung’ regulations.
Alex Brown commented on the post, Renault costing Red Bull half a second on straights – Verstappen 3 years, 10 months ago
Final drive ratios are still free, I believe. Plus, downforce isn’t automatically a top speed killer if it can be created efficiently. The goal is a good lift/drag ratio. Red Bull might be running higher wing […]
Alex Brown commented on the post, F1 will "destroy itself" if it becomes too safe, Lauda warns 3 years, 11 months ago
The first thing that came to my mind was the accident that all but ended Nikki’s career: the ’91 Lauda Air plane crash. Death is simply not acceptable and any industry like this can’t justify it. People’s lives […]
One thing that irritates me is the way F1 feels it is special in this regard. All other international racing is run with the same blue flag rules, and these are similar to national rules too. Essentially, a flag […]
Alex Brown commented on the post, Ill Villeneuve withstands Irvine attack to win again 4 years, 5 months ago
Panis was flying in the Buenos Aires heat.
You know, for every problem people have with F1, there’s a different series you can watch instead/as well. I wish we could stop expecting F1 to change to our individual taste, as if no-one else matters. F1 is […]
My (rudimentary) understanding is that increases in downforce at the front end come with less drag penalty than at the rear. An increase in downforce increases the drag coefficient, but not the frontal area. […]
