@142If his powers of observation are so keen, it must mean he drove into Bruno Senna on purpose at the start. Up to now I had assumed it was an error and that he didn't spot poor old Bruno. My point is how did he know for sure it was a legal move with all the 'yellow' around him and, in any event, what was the rush - as it was TR it would have pulled off the circuit and parked if required!!!!
141.F1An F1 drivers awareness is something I dont think us mere mortals can comprehend. Jackie Stewart once said he could be going 180 mph past a packed grandstand & spot someone he knows in the crowd! SV seeing a marshall waving a flag (his position would have been known too) would have been a piece of cake !!!
@133 Even a colourblind hedgehog in a bag could see it.....Really, there are numerous very bright, high intensity panels of flashing lights along the trackside, SV dash display shows he is still in the yellow zone and despite this he was able to spot the lone marshall waiving a green flag (through the spray and rain whilst completing the overtake). He is better than I thought!
When I saw the picture I thought Ruebens had been signed up again!!
Can anyone please tell me something outstanding Bruno Senna has done to deserve his seat in F.1. other than having an emotional surname?
@129, Better to win the title by pointing out someone broke the rules than actually breaking the rules to win it yourself don't you think.If the pass was actually illegal, then why should Red Bull and Vettel get away with it.
That is a shame for Senna but it was obvious what Williams had planned from almost the start of the season. I just hope Senna gets a proper full drive for the first time. One that isn't handicapped from the outset, which is all he has been given so far from HRT, Lotus and Williams. Sharing practice, sharing races. Even Bottas admitted that having only half a Friday wasn't much good.
Great big shame to see Senna out of a good car. He drove very well this year. Perhaps lacks speed, but makes up for it in racing. Lets see Senna back in F1.
I don't personally see what Bruno Senna has done wrong to justify this exclusion. Hopefully he can bounce back or someone signs him up as he has great potential. Very disappointed in Williams unless his replacement wins the world championship next season.
#131: "1988, there were 18 teams, 6 more than currently. this is what i want to see brought back"Why? Looking at your example, in 1988 5 of 18 teams were single-car entries, 8 of 18 teams scored no points, every race had 5 cars that failed to qualify (grid limited to 26). Plus, of course, one team won 15 of 16 races! In today's economic climate 10 teams seems to be the sustainable size.
And i thought it was only our own press who clutched at straws! clearly this is the doing of the Spanish media and Ferrari responding to the media pressure. I suspect Fernando has nothing to do with this and if asked, in private, i think he would be appalled.The pass was clearly under the green flag. Even a colourblind hedgehog in a bag could see it.
@131I do share your sentiments to some extent. The reality is that it costs so much more these days to start up a team. You are talking at least £100m to get up and running if you want to compete with the ebstablished teams, and another £80m a year to stay there. The reality is that we're only likely to have 22 next year, and that's down to the economic climate.
yes I know that alot of old teams still exist under different names, my point is still that f1 needs more teams competing. the size of the grid needs to be extended to accommodate the number of cars they used to right up until the early 90s. just to pick a random year, 1988, there were 18 teams, 6 more than currently. this is what i want to see brought back
