ok, so:... excessive tyre degradation, throughout the event..... tyres so fragile, that they explode...... passive driving encouraged....controlled passive,FIA, overtaking areas...Definitely THE MOST MANIPULATED SPORT GOING.but, they tell us we love it?
"Hamilton won by a whisker his World Championship yet Seb Vettel has dominated to become a triple world champion all by the tender age of 25.... "52. This alone shows how much you lack in F1 knowledge. If you have to ask it's even worse.
187. ButtfaceSorry to wade into the grammar debate but you are wrong! :)When the acronym is pronounced as individual letters then you always use the article that is appropriate when pronouncing the first letter. In this case "ef" so the article is "an".Just say "a F1 car" back to yourself and you will realise that it makes you sound like a 5 year old :)
@27 Long Beach? Try again!As for the Middlesbrough GP, the perfect track is practically over the road from the Riverside, the Teesside Autodrome!May need widening quite a bit though, and an awful lot of stands built...
How about top 5 fastest lap points. 5 ,4,3,2,1. Each driver only scoring their fastest lap to avoid multiple positions? Or is that just a ridiculous idea. Might allow more strategies? Or would it make it too complicated?
Thank you to those that corrected my grammar. As I understood it, you can use 'an' when stating an acronym but not when writing (as taught to me when at school and it stuck with me since). The rules for this were somewhat vague in the past but I see the rule is firmly established. Thanks :-)
The refuelling era was the most boring in the history of Formula 1.There was no incentive to overtake because you could wait until the pit stops and do a few hot laps either before or after to overtake whilst your rival was in the pits.You had cars 10 to 15 seconds away from each other by the halfway point of a race. It wasn't worth watching.
re:182(179) - That's the point Vettel only chalk's up fastest laps for himself. If all drivers new there was an incentive to drive as fast as they could then it gives all teams an opportunity to gain points even when they are out of the top 10. Also less of the 'drive the car home' mentality.Bring back re-fueling, then the cars will always be at their peak. Less tyre misery from high fuel loads
@ 183. Agreed. He didn't even make the chicane himself on the 1st KR incident. Can't see we everyone doesn't take the line KR took the 2nd time. Not really sure why MC got a pen...where was PM really expecting to go? Shouldn't he have got out of it?
Excellent article, Perez should have received a penalty for the first maneuver on Kimi.Kimi had to cut the chicane to avoid an accident and Perez followed.That was pure intuition from Kimi,Perez followed only because he went in way too hot, like the previous maneuver against Alonso.But this is the fault of the stewards who didn't see this as totally dangerous.Perez got what he deserved in the end.
179 - Nobody would have a chance of setting the fastest lap as Vettel likes to chalk these up even when his team tell him to take it easy181 - I think Rosberg and Hamilton are the strongest team pairing out of them all - give them a car good on race days and they will dominateOn a seperate not I also think it is a shame that Paul Di Resta did not get the McLaren drive when Hamilton left
Fair play Dondaz -- you're right, no problems this season (though have been in the past) but spot on about Kobayashi -- should be in F1 when you look at some of those who are in it instead. And Kovalainen should still be in it. And Alguesuari didn't do too much wrong.Here's a thought by the way: Schumi and Rosberg were 10-10 in qualifying last season. It was 10-9 to Schumi before Brazil.
