No, that's true. When he came out exclaiming that Rosberg had said he did it on purpose, well, that sort of thing makes him look hysterical.

Obviously Rosberg said something that could potentially be taken that way, but it's clear from the facts (and from common sense) that Rosberg is not going to deliberately take out his team mate using his own front wing. He stood as good a chance of ending his own race as Hamilton's.

I bet Mercedes is regretting that statement they made at the start of the season saying there'd be no team orders and that they'd let their boys race. Hamilton must be seething. This was his year. Mercedes pace is unmatched, Vettel can't come to grips with the car, Alonso is struggling because ferrari can't get their act together and when he should be dominating he's being screwed over by car problems or his less talented teammate.

Re: F1 2014 Championship Thread

I was on holiday so I didn't get to see the Belgium GP, I have since caught it and yes Rosberg made an error of judgement in his attempt to pass Lewis it was a clumsy move.

But whilst Rosberg has a 22 point after Monza, let's remember that Lewis still has 2 more retirements than Rosberg, Rosberg should have a far bigger lead but some stellar drives from Lewis such as Germany and Hungary have helped keep the points difference to what it is.

Re: F1 2014 Championship Thread

Whilst I do tend to agree with this latest FIA directive regarding banning communication to the drivers about performace during a race




http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/29161931
Whiting writes that the FIA intends to "rigorously enforce this regulation with immediate effect. Therefore, no radio conversation from pit to driver may include any information that is related to the performance of the car or driver."

ne senior figure said that all the potential problems raised by the letter could be removed by changing the last clause to "any information related to the performance of the driver".

Which I think is the right way to go. i.e. you can't tell Driver A that they are slower than driver B in a particualr corner.

Not sure if they can enfore it though, teams might just use coded messages.

i.e. "Fernando is faster than you" translation be a good boy and move over and let him pass.

Bit harsh, and probably impossible to enforce, but at least it's a step in the right direction. The amount of micromanaging the drivers get from the pit wall these days is just ridiculous, almost like having two-way telemetry.

Re: F1 2014 Championship Thread

So if pit to car communication is banned what about car to car communication. Could they not just get the two cars to exchange communication and show on the LCD (for those that have them) where each car is performing better.

What about the pit board can they show something like

C3 -0.1 B10L

or translated Corner 3 -0.1 seconds Brake 10 metres later.

Anyone seen the Formula E opening race in Beijing? Apparently it was quite the spectacle.

No, I forgot it was happening becasue it's on "the light channel". But it's on ITV Player, so I'll probably watch it this weekend.

Quite the lineup of F1 rejects they've got racing

I love how Danny O'Dwyer called the race "Wipeout's origin story"

Not a good start for Rosberg. Stalling on the parade lap...

Well that result certainly makes the Championship more interesting, with Lewis now only three points pehind Roberg, though it's still two DNF's for Rosberg comapred against Lewis' three DNF's
