They’re actually much more reliable. They’re literally the most efficient PUs in the world. I’m too lazy to crunch the numbers for all the eras, but this article shows the difference between Ferrari retirements from ‘89-’95 with the V12 vs ‘14- now and the difference is quite substantial. I would assume the trend is Read more

Would be nice to seem the team sold to some billionaire that wants to build a 4 wheel rocket to the moon, regardless of cost. Renault being a works team that’s treading water in the shallow end is almost as bad as watching Williams running a GP2 car every race weekend. When you have one (1) Daniel Ricciardo on your Read more

The rules aren’t vague. The press conference today went into decent detail about how the cost-cap is to be achieved as well as how much an effect the new aero has, how much freedom teams have in development of car components, sustainability goals, weight increases and a whole bunch of other stuff. Maybe I’m just a big

Spectacle races are good for business, even if the racing sucks. Monaco and Singapore are two of the most glamorous and well attended races on the calendar. I think a spectacle race in Miami would be lots of fun. Say what you want about Miami, but it’s a city that knows how to party. Most of the excitement will be in Read more

Baku actually seems to produce eventful races with some decent overtaking.

How many times do people need to hear that refueling means LESS overtaking?????? Thank you for posting that, we don’t need refueling. It’s a logistical nightmare and it is not necessary. If we bring back refueling then everybody is going to bitch that too many races are being decided in the pit lane and not on track. Read more

I owned a V6 for about 3 years, and it’s a very linear powerband, super easy to drive but, you need very, very short gears. I was able to go from 3.15 to 3.55 but I really needed 3.73 or shorter. The V6 models are actually insane values if you don’t care about raw HP but you HAVE to find at least a 3.73 rear end or Read more

But that’s the whole thing. F1 isn’t just about racing and wrenching. It’s about all aspects of motorsport. It’s what elevates it above everything else as the pinnacle of motorsport. It’s an arms race where you get to put a person in the rocket you built. I mean think about when McLaren first introduced carbon Read more

Sainz and Lando are such an awesome pair. They seem like actual mates and they work together beautifully. I don’t think McLaren really has a regular sniff of the podium until after the 2021 regulation changes but I’m hoping Sainz and Lando can stay together. It’s crazy, McLaren have the drivers they need to make some Read more

Also worth noting that Danny and Max were in a classic “who is the favorite child?”situation, with RBR lying to Danny’s face that they felt he was still a race-winner and possible #1 when it was obvious that they were grooming Max. Horner lied as usual (RBR like to use Machiavellian tactics) and Max knew he was the Read more

The crash in pre-season testing broke Gasly. You could see in his racing that he was tentative and didn’t have the killer instinct. Like falling off a bike and being afraid to peddle faster when you get back on.

Yeah the rain didn’t actually stop completely until like the last 5-6 laps. The soft tire thing started when Haas pitted early in the race and took a chance on the rain ending (it didn’t) and threw on slicks as a kind of gamble. Everyone else kind of copied that (RBR put on mediums for Max to try to split between Read more

Yeah but it’s way cooler to bash F1 and call it boring for stars on the internet. A bunch of people going “Hmppph I’M NOT IMPRESSED”, when in reality, if they had to do that job themselves, they’d probably end up breaking equipment and in the ER. Read more

Yea, I like the part of the quote about mechanical watches. It’s obvious that there is a market for manual sales, but the buyers are usually hardcore enthusiasts more often than not. Instead of automakers looking at a manual equipped model as an afterthought, you can tailor-make trim levels that maximize profits but Read more

I think it was called Fanzone or something? I think it was a fan from each team of that fixture and they commentated the whole game, with a bunch of friendly banter. I remember watching them in college.

We wouldn’t be here if people just read the report. Not even the whole thing, I got about 120 pages in and it was obvious that it was crime time all the way up and down the ladder. Our country is so obsessed with entertainment that we expect politics to be theater. When the President gets a BJ everyone puts on their Read more

You could probably get a decent Turbo R for about twice as much, which ain’t that bad. CP for me, I adore old Bentleys more than most people, but this is a bad way to spend $7500.

Someone call CPS because Ferrari forgot about one of their children. Seriously, Charles can’t have done anything to deserve this treatment and he’s such a chill guy, he just stays professional and lets it roll off his back. He’s my favorite driver at the moment, and I can’t wait to tell my grandkids about the decade Read more

If the only thing you care about in a F1 race is the winner, I don’t think you’re as big of a fan as you think you are.
