Re: CHINA F1 RACING TEAM LIMITED

Ah, so its just prejudice, rather than you not liking them spending money on the sport. This is no different to how Mercedes re-entered the sport as a racing team. In 2010, they had no recent history of racing in F1, only in being an engine supplier to F1 teams. I'm sure you can see the difference....

Re: Perez cost Force India a probable podium in Montreal!

I don't see why Perez letting Ocon by would lose time, two long straights would have been the ideal places. Perez would still have DRS as long as he was right behind Ocon, while Ocon would have DRS, a Mercedes engine, and a tyre advantage. In other words, Ocon held three advantages over Ricciardo, ...

Perez may regret that. For those teams every point really does matter and they came close to hitting 3rd. That amount of points can be a few positions in a table over the year.

About fuel economy... because they all have the same fuel flux, with these F1 engines the less power you produce, the slower you go, the more time it spends consuming fuel, so pretty much, being less powerful equals to being more thirsty too
