Re: Porsche to leave LeMans?

While that would be awful for WEC (if true) I couldn't be happier for FE. The neanderthals that keep trying to reject FE can't keep believing it's going to go away any time soon I still find WEC races much more exciting than FE and that's not because FE is powered by batteries.

Porsche to leave LeMans?

There are rumours that Porsche might leave Le Mans. Porsche leaving could mean end of LMP1 class, because at least 2 manufactures are required in LMP1. :(

Re: Jordan: Mercedes F1 team will quit after 2018

Manufacturers typically come and go, however Mercedes have stayed longer than anybody else in F1 1994-2017 so far , 23 years and now in its 8th year as a team which I believe is the joint most for any manufacturer in one stint. They also owned 30-40% of Mclaren for a long time. It would be nice for...

He would probably have crept into Q3 had Vandoorne not binned it, add on the random weight check at the worst possible time... Just a bad weekend really
Yes, but it was still much slower than Bottas.

Re: Should McLaren leave F1? Concentrate on Sportscars?

Wouldn't McLaren as a car manufacture be forced to compete in Le Mans in the same category as Porsche and Toyota? Going to Le Mans would also mean developing their own hybrid engine. Going to any other series mean pretty much closure of their current racing team.

Re: Mercedes must back Hamilton, now

I think it's too early. Hamilton is only 23 points ahead of Bottas. They were talking like that was a lot on the Sky F1 show but it really isn't with the current points. I think they need to have some kind of agreement that if your team mate is behind you and faster you let him past. Other than tha...

Some title winning Red Bull weren't quickest out of the box. In 2012 Vettel only started winning races on regular basis during second part of the season iirc.
