Re: Should the Monaco GP be on the calendar?

Yes, if something can be done to restructure the track to allow overtaking. Going by today's race, any of the top teams could have won this race if they were just ahead. Didn't matter if you had someone with fresh tyres on someone with 30 lap old ones. The few that tried ended up in incidents.

Snoozed through the better part of this race, no idea who to give this to. However, if there was a team of the race award, pretty sure I wouldn't award it to Mercedes!

Re: F1 app

This is ridiculous. I was one of those who paid for the app last time around, but asking to pay 2.5 times more for this year is plain stupid. F1 keeps moaning about losing audiences.. Well, it will really have to fight to keep a hold of its existing fans at this rate. Wow.

Re: Formula '14 or Formula '13?

Funny thing is, F1 2013 probably had a much closer leading field than what 2014 has had so far. But even in the races where Mercs haven't hit reliability issues, we have seen a lot of close knit racing, and that in my view makes this year much better than the previous year/formula.

Re: 2014 German GP race thread

Rosberg shouldn't really have a battle, or at least not as much as he would have had if Hamilton had qualified higher, so i expect he can take it easy and nurse the car. Am guessing no reliability issues for Rosberg this time, and Hamilton to fight back and maybe even get a fairytale podium.

Looks like Mercs will retain their advantage over the rest, and Hamilton might well hold something over Rosberg given his 36.503 Sector 2 versus the 37.1 for Rosberg. Of course Rosberg too might not have gone too hard. Either ways, Merc domination seem set to continue, and Williams might have fallen...

Re: Did Hamilton attempt to block Rosberg at the end of Q3?

I never saw a replay of both of their outlaps, but i guess it depends on how long it took Hamilton to get past Perez and how much Perez impeded Hamilton in turn. In hindsight, both Mercs should have been out some 20secs earlier to make sure they had a better buffer. I think Hamilton did reasonably w...
