Re: Button says "We are getting the best out of the car"

Hahahaha have they tired of Nico already?!

Seriously I'd be more concerned that if Lewis doesn't blow Nico away that'll be his two last teammates that he couldn't dominate!

Re: Mercedes are Bigging up Nico ...

I think they were right to minimise the risk, even if it was unfair (which I agree it was) to one driver. You've just suggested the reason why Ross Brawn may have done what he did out of a misplaced kneejerk reaction. Had he forgotten that Schumacher had gone, and that team mates racing one another...

Re: Perhaps it's time to bring back refuelling

I think just get rid of the step tires, just go with the soft compound and have qualifying tires. That way, teams/drivers can decide whether to have more or fewer pit stops. DRS already allows overtaking when a faster car is behind. We don't need the step tires to slow down the fast drivers. I thin...

Re: Perhaps it's time to bring back refuelling

I'd say just bring back the Bridgestones. I don't care if drivers only stop once during the race, that will mean more action on the track. The excuse about procession racing, please! Thats why we have DRS now in the first place and it works. I don't like DRS that much myself, but I think its a sham...

Re: Perhaps it's time to bring back refuelling

Lets be honest here

Some people just want time trials

20 lap stints setting fastest lap after fastest lap with no attempt at strategy or race craft
Just a stint then pit / another stint another pit

No overtaking on track and no excitement. Because if we bring it back that's what we're gonna get.
