I understand why Haas don’t want to spend any money on this year’s car as it’s a sound business decision for a cash strapped team. However, this is when I think the rule makers need to step in and make sure that […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, 10 years of DRS: Should F1 wean itself off push-button passes? 2 weeks ago
Based on the stated goals of the 2022 changes, yes DRS should be retired. However, as I don’t think the 2022 changes are going to have the desired effect, I think DRS should be modified to adjust the front wings […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, Inconsistent track limits rules confusing for fans, say drivers 2 weeks, 1 day ago
@petebaldwin, super coin-toss is just too much! Thanks for that laugh.
Velocityboy commented on the post, Smart and small Tsunoda is Japan's best chance for a champion – Marko 2 weeks, 4 days ago
I wonder if his comment is directed at Honda as a way of saying stay in F1 and make Tsuonda a champion.
Velocityboy commented on the post, Vettel's grid penalty "consistent with what drivers were told" – Masi 2 weeks, 4 days ago
Captain Pessimist here again…We had a close fight between the best RB they’ve started a season with in years and a Merc that the team are not happy with. What do we think will happen when Merc sort out their […]
There should be something like the 107% rule during the race, and if you’re not capable of doing a certain lap time, then you’re black flagged. The Haas cars are shopping carts and they should be forced to put […]
Boggles the mind why Red Bull didn’t just pit a lap after Hamilton and push their advantage. Did anyone, other that his parents, think that Bottas was any kind of a challenge for the race win? Why would they even […]
Track limits shouldn’t be a race by race, track by track, session by session thing. There should be one hard and fast rule that applies all the time. Put any part of the car outside the white lines and you’ll be […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, Verstappen wants Perez's arrival to help Red Bull topple Mercedes 3 weeks, 1 day ago
I agree. I think that Perez’s ability to manage his tires may end up putting him ahead of Max and that could make for some very interesting on track action, as we’ve also seen that Perez won’t back down when […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, Murray Walker, 'The voice of Formula 1', dies at the age of 97 1 month ago
R.I.P. For me he will always be the voice of F1, and he was one of the reasons I started to follow F1 as his enthusiasm was contagious. I always felt that things were just better when Murray was the commentator.
Velocityboy commented on the post, First pictures: Williams presents a new look for the 2021 F1 season 1 month, 1 week ago
I guess we should just be thankful that it’s not as bad as the red Veltins livery.
Velocityboy commented on the post, DTM's audience boost shows why F1 needs to try sprint races – Wolff 1 month, 2 weeks ago
So having sprint races with cars that can’t follow closely is going to increase viewership in ways that the main race where cars can’t follow closely can’t? I don’t see why they insist on making changes like this […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, First pictures: Alpine reveals its Formula 1 contender for 2021 1 month, 2 weeks ago
+1. Love it!
Agreed. I thought that with her success in the W series, she would have gotten an F2 drive, maybe as a part of the W series championship package. I’m starting to feel like her hopes of moving up in open wheel […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, Engine freeze agreed unanimously, sprint race plan yet to be finalised 2 months ago
If after the freeze Red Bull and Alpha Tauri can go on without Honda, what will Ferrari, Mercedes and Renault be supplying their customers once the freeze goes into effect? Spark plugs and hoses?
And of course […]
I don’t quite understand this. They’ll have qualifying to set the field for the sprint race, so the cars will be lined up fastest to slowest. Then they’ll have a short race in which there is no reason to expect […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, Hamilton and Mercedes finally announce new deal for 2021 season 2 months, 1 week ago
Sure. At his age he probably has to ask himself each year if he wants to continue and I’d imagine Mercedes are thinking the same thing. Remember, racing has been the focus of his life since he was quite young, so […]
Next year’s cars are also intended to produce much closer racing and easier overtaking
I’d like to see a competition, perhaps for some F1 memorabilia where we guess the date when we realize that the cars c […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, Vettel: No other team has this big a gap between cars 4 months ago
I doubt it’s a mystery. He can look at Charles’ in car camera footage and data traces, so by now he should know where things are different. If the cars are different, then saying it’s a mystery is a nice way of […]
