Re: 2014 Monaco GP Practice and Qualifying Thread

For going off the track - error, no penalty.

For reversing back in to the track into on coming traffic - silly, penalty.

Re: Let's talk Monaco

I watched the 2012 Monco F1 hightlights on the BBC last night & I had absolute no memory of the race. I think the only overtakes were in the pitlane & I think that was Hamilton dropping places to Alonso & Vettel.
However, I found 2010, 2011 & 2013 races pretty entertaining.

Re: Ferrari has a mountain to climb AGAIN

With Ferrari, they/we conceded they are down on power and performance but are almost resigned to be stuck ...

Re: Ricciardo given a 10 place grid penalty for Bahrain!

Isnt it in the rules now that is you have a grid penalty you carry over any 'left over' penalty position into the next race? So if Ricciardo qualifies 15, he drops 7 places to 22 but still has 3 penalty places to incur, therefore, these places are then taken at the next race? Is this right? Or does ...

Re: Mercedes new found dominance

I think it would be ironic (and also hilarious) if Vettel wins the WDC in the final race because of the double points rule. I think the only reason the FIA came up with this stupid rule is to give another driver other than Vettel a chance of winning the WDC in the final race. So for Vettel to win fr...

Re: Williams "monkey seat" wing?

Clever design work.

That is the exhaust heat shield cover & isnt attached to the back wing. However, it looks like Williams has designed it to be 'mini wing'. Not sure how benifical it will be, but I'm guessing it will probably adopted by a lot of other teams as the season progresses.

Technically, the cars weren't different but Keke Rosberg drove a McLaren at the 1986 Portuguese GP that was sponsored by Marlboro Lights which made the car yellow the white rather than the normal red and white car that Prost drove.

Sorry to highjack this thread, but I dont see why they have the Fuel Flow sensor in the first place. Surely if you are given a set amount of fuel per race (100kg), then it must be the team & drivers responsibility on how they manage it. If they want to pump a load of fuel into the engine to get ...

^ What if I told you that the current generation of road cars are now designed with a small engines with a turbo; and that ERS is now being developed for the average run around.
F1 is supposed to mirror current road car technology so that we see the benefits a few years down the line.

Re: 2014 Jerez Winter Testing thread..

Just out of curiosity, are teams only allowed to bring one car to testing or could they have two in case one crashes?

Obviously, some lower end teams stuggle to get one car to testing, where as other big teams shouldnt have an issue getting two cars.
