Re: Team Radio Ban - Are We Missing the Point?

Suggestion: Only allow a radio message for fixing a non safety related issue while the car is driving in the pitlane. That way the team and driver have a choice whether to let the driver try to figure it out, or if it is serious enough, tell him to drive through the pits for instructions on how to r...

Re: Nico has accepted 2nd already against Hamilton...

I firmly believe that Hamilton is a faster qualifier than Nico, it's just that Hamilton made a number of errors on his Q3 lap when often his Q2 lap may have got him pole. In 2014, Rosberg was just outright faster than Hamilton on Saturday, in many qualifying sessions like Bahrain, Belgium, Japan, U...

Re: Wolff talks about Alonso, and Hamilton's contract.

Re: Hamilton has now beaten Rosberg in 8 of the last 10 race

Nico's strength is his quali pace so if LH is out pacing him consistently on Saturday's then he hasn't a hope and he knows it. Over a season he would fall in between KR and SV but that greater potential for robbing SV of points wouldn't suit Ferrari. Personally I'd love to see him at Williams as I d...

What they 'could' do if they think it is questionable is give him a penalty for not making enough of an effort to get the car as well out of the way as possible (ie he reversed), that way they hedge their bets each way.
