Re: Perez's superstar status after Monza.......

I agree with the post, not to detract from the great drive but it was not legendary as some are calling it. Again it comes down to good strategy and the fact he gets to use two new sets of tyres. People in the top 10 in qualifying have a major disadvantage in having to run an old set and personally ...

Re: McLaren ‘Plan B’ may be shaping up.

this has been done to death I love the button quote at the end on Diresta about a link to McLaren and Button states thats for his management to comment on, the management company that Button set up. I can never see the link with Diresta and Mclaren as long as he is managed by the company that is own...

Re: MONZA: Driver of the day.

Its for that reason that I couldn't give Perez the the driver of the day that is a massive advantage, true you have to pick the right strategy but that's the strategists job and this is driver of the day. Effectively people qualifying have to weigh up the advantage and disadvantage of the new tyres,...

Re: Vettel vs Alonso incident (drive through for Vettel)

with the new rule change for this year Vettel was always going to get a drive through, but i did think Alonso new from the start of the move he was going to go on the grass and pull the same overtake that was pulled on him the previous year. It was only when he got on the grass he was like WTF bad i...

Re: The Official Kimi Räikkonen thread

anyway back on topic I feel the Lotus is the best car but ends up in bad situations, and the delay for the ddrs has left me feeling other teams will question its legality and Lotus are hoping for a good run (like Red Bull who ran the car technically illegal for the first 6 races) before the ddrs is ...

Re: You are Whitmarsh, who'd you replace Hamilton with?

Re: MONZA: Driver of the day.

I voted Hamilton after all he won, but all were so close and got the best results each could get given their respective starting positions and the strategies they chose. out of interest if you dont qualify in the top ten can both sets of the tyres you use be new? or do you have to run the set you qu...
