+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 […]
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 […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, F1's new plan for three Saturday sprint races in 2021 faces Thursday vote 3 months ago
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 3 months 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 […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, Vettel: No other team has this big a gap between cars 4 months, 4 weeks 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 […]

As much as I rate Perez, if I was at RB I’d approach Merc about buying out Russell’s contract. That would force Merc to either put Russell in the car in 2021 or sell his contract because I can’t see them sending […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, Sakhir performance risked making me look a fool, admits Bottas 5 months ago
Maybe Bottas being a nice guy is the “problem”. After his second pit stop I expected to hear him questioning the team as to why he was so much further behind Russell and there was nothing. Hamilton would have been […]
Letting teams run a third car may be the easy solution (assuming some teams would want to run a third car) and adjust the spending cap accordingly for three car teams. I’d imagine that Perez and Hulk would be able […]
Velocityboy commented on the post, Why Russell's Mercedes debut could hit Hamilton in the pocket 5 months ago
@apollo16rs, the CAR wasn’t managing it’s own tires now was it? The CAR doesn’t tell the engineers what’s right or wrong with it’s handling, braking etc when on the track. The CAR doesn’t decided to override the […]

And how good is Russell at developing a car? People seem to forget that a driver’s role consists of more than just driving.
More of Bottas’ bad luck I guess.
I think F1 did a good job of waiting to see how Grosjean was doing before showing the replays and I don’t think they were played just for the sake of showing a big crash. Perhaps the issue is that there were TV’s […]
Agreed, the marshall wasn’t wearing fireproof clothing and was using a fire extinguisher better suited to the garage at my house.
I certainly hope the FIA take a good long look at this accident in regards to the […]
Seems like when talking about changes for 2022, people were all for mixed up grids and unpredictable finishes and if speed and performance were sacrificed to achieve it that was fine. Now there are complaints that […]
So the software changes their lap count increasing it by one. You can’t then say that a lapped car that is right behind the leader is now in second place. So that driver would then have to come out of place and […]
