Re: Planet F1 Winners and Losers view on the Bot v Ham incid

Don't think it was worth a penalty though. It was a racing incident if you ask me though Bottas is certainly not at fault. The stewards seemed a tad overeager with the penalties, first with Massa and then with Hamilton. Ironically, Maldonado didn't get a penalty for crashing into Vergne despite an ...

Re: Whitmarsh says rival reneged on Magnussen deal

Well if someone reneged on the Magnussen deal, it's Magnussen who should be waiting another year for a drive. I don't think Perez deserves his McLaren seat either but I didn't like how they made it difficult for him to find a drive anywhere for 2014. Whitmarsh is trying to wriggle out of taking resp...

F1 is already carbon neutral if I recall correctly. Could you explain what that means? Are they buying carbon credits or something?

Rosberg is to other F1 drivers what a Toyota Corolla is to other cars. Works really well and is a solid choice but has nothing special to offer.

That's why he doesn't have many die hard fans.

As F1 fans, do you guys often think about the environmental impact that F1 has?

The end of the DRS straight has a fairly low speed turn and is an excellent place to give way. Grosjean wasn't being impatient by expecting Raikkonen to move over at that corner.
