Re: 2015 Abu Dhabi race thread

What the hell was that micromanagment of the Mercedes drivers in this race, i think they make a fool of race-fans in this race. 2 weeks ago they said they keep them on identical strategies to keep the battle fair, but they clearly disadvantage Hamilton in this race. I'm a Ferrari fan, so i couldn't ...

Re: 14 cars OR 20 cars but no Ferrari

Ferrari get 2½% of the profit pie extra just for turning up. Which is around 18.8 million $. The prize money they recieve as per the exact same rules as everybody else + their extra prize money is around 100 million $. Now i wouldn't argue that it's an unfair advantage, since they got more prize mon...

Re: The Conspiracy of Ferrari and Renault

I would think the latter part to be honest. Ferrari has more than enough high-profile technical staff. So ...

I don't agree with divebombing. It puts way too much trust in the driver being overtaken. If I was Prost, I would have turned in too. Senna had a godgiven talent, but some of his driving wasn't the stuff of angels.
