My take on this is the RB simulator is not good enough. Perez should be able to figure some things out in the simulator (then confirm them on track) and then address the rest on the track, but it sounds like he […]
that’s because there’s a great trust between us If that great trust existed, he never would have considered staying out. Seems more like, I kinda sorta trust them, so after considering my options, I decided to giv […]
At every race track limits are an issue. At what point is the FIA going to say enough is enough, the track limits are the white line and if you exceed the track limits you will be penalized 10 seconds and 5 grid […]
Because you’re not as good as them?
Velocityboy commented on the post, F1 must tackle rise of 'unhealthy team affiliations' – Brown 1 week, 4 days ago
Brown seems like a naïve Pollyanna. This is a business, and as such “someday, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me. But until that day, accept my assistance with your car.”
Velocityboy commented on the post, Official: Points-paying Sprint Qualifying races approved by F1 Commission 2 weeks ago
Given that no one is going to want to take too big a risk to gain one starting position, I can only assume that the start of the race is going to be the only time there may be some action. After that they will […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, 'Hamilton didn't break the rules by reversing' shouldn't be a story 2 weeks ago
The story is spot on in that with success in F1 comes the haters and trolls. Name a driver that was very successful in F1 (won multiple and more importantly consecutive championships) and you’ll find people who […]
And with this, the power unit freeze Red Bull pushed for should be rescinded.
Velocityboy commented on the post, Haas "not putting in any effort" to do more than fight Williams this year 1 month ago
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? 1 month, 1 week 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 […]

@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 1 month, 1 week 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 1 month, 1 week 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 1 month, 2 weeks 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, 4 weeks 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 2 months 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 2 months, 1 week 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 […]
