Re: F1 2013 Championship

Tbh they should just make all people in the pit lane wear head protection and instead of banning cameramen from the pit lane, just make them stand closer to the garages so that they're less likely to be in the path of any loose wheels (the one who got knocked down was pretty much standing in a pit box, wasn't he?).

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Utter fail

Banned from the pit lane on safety grounds

TV Crew
TV Journalists

Not banned from the pit lane (obviously they are at no danger)

Still Photographers
Written Journalists

Either you ban everyone on safety ground or you don't ban anyone. And I'm sorry the excuse that you have no control over one of them is feeble. You are making a descion based on safety grounds, safety should trump everything.

How is that feeble?

They don't have control over them. They have made the decision to ban people they do have control over, how are they supposed to ban people they have no control over?

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Very simple impose a new rule banning non-team members from the pit-lane. If it is an attempt at safety the FIA should step in and impose the rule. Or individual tracks could impose the rule.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

That's fine, but FOM can't do that, they've done what they can do. You specifically attacked their excuse for not taking further action as being feeble, when in fact it is perfectly valid.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

So the F1 circus is back after a 3 week break. Are we expecting a Red Bull front row?

Anyway instead of brining back testing, why not bring back the T-Car with the provision it can only be used during Practice sessions. And let the reserve driver(s) who are fairly often at the GP anyway do the testing. It gets more millegae for them, as it would be in traffic they could hone their race craft to a certain degree. It would allow teams to test at all the circuits instead of just 2 or 3.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Horner making excuses for Vettel and his lack of pole... how pathetic. It's not like Lewis had a great lap himself, yet he managed to get on pole. Also, Webber really does get all the bad luck doesn't he? RBR being clowns as usual.

Prediction: Hamilton's tyres will melt and Vettel will go off into the distance for yet another processional snoozefest.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Lewis sounded suprised to find out he was on pole. But now that RBR finally have the 2012 tyre construction back I suspect they thought they would easily top the time sheets. But then again points aren't awarded on saturdays.

It just goes to show that the Mercedes has great underlying pace if they can just fix the tyre wear issue(s).

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Well my prediction was wrong then. Lewis Hamilton... WIIINNNNSSSSS!

I couldn't help but laugh seeing Vettel stuck behind Button with Hamilton going off into the distance.

Re: F1 2013 Championship

I don't think many people would have predicted a Lewis victory. But Vettel lost it by not being able to overtake the slower McLaren, which Lewis managed to do. That was the difference today Lewis went for the overtake aand made it stick.

But Grosjean was once again banging wheels.And it looks like he was lucky the Stewards decided to award him a 20 second penalty instead of a grid penalty next time around.

And it was nice to see Williams get a point.

2014 Merc engine on a dyno sync'd up to a simulator.

Sounds very bland IMO, though Merc themselves say that the recording isn't perfect,

Re: F1 2013 Championship

Well looks like there are doubts over 2 possible 3 races for next year

The Russian Grand Prix (missed the deadline for application to host a race)

The Indian Grand Prix (red tape and a change of date to earlier in the season)

The American Grand Prix (New Jersey)

But we know of at least one race that is returning The Austrian Grand Prix.
