when he came out of the pits in 3rd, why didn't he use flick his switch to cut down significantly on the leaders?
you can blame the rules all you want, the F150? just sucks aerodynamically!
Yes, it does suck aerodynamically but you have just proven that aerodynamics is the only thing that matters in F1 these days, which means the F1 Championship isn't happening during the regular season, it's happening during the development season and all you can do is hope the engineers of your team did a good job. $5 says you can have shit drivers in the Red Bull cars and the team would still win the championship...
Nope. VET and HAM drove circles around the opposition even when on primes. I'd say (and i think DC and/or Brundle backed me up on this) the primes are between .5 and 1 second slower in race trim.
Why does that matter? Butthurt? Please, just grow up man, this has nothing to do with being a fanboy. I'm simply looking at the bigger picture and from my point of view DRS, KERS, and the tire situation, have made the series worse taking more of the racing away from driver and putting more emphasis on the technology. At this point, why have human drivers at all?
It's a gimmick, and that's all I'll say on the matter. It was exciting in China, now it's getting old rather quickly.
Ferrari didn't win, clearly the rules are wrong.
you have lost your mind. again, your teams cars just cant keep up. deal with it. your acting the same as the actual team, freaking out and blaming everything else because your not winning. its just sad. i dont see people like Mpicco complaining, he just accepts that the cars are slower and there is work to be done to catch up. its part of being an F1 fan.

Leave the guy alone man, he's far from being the only one saying these new rules are gimmicky and cut down on real racing. Without going further, why don't you bash this guy too?
Or Jordan and Coulthard, who were discussing exactly that F1 is becoming a spectacle but not a sport anymore just before the race?
F1 Forum's resident douchebags.
It's arguments like this over things like this which are slowly driving me away from F1. Really not sure whether I even have an opinion of the race, and at the same time I stood up until 1 AM to watch the end of Bump Day at Indy. :/
As for DRS, it ranges from making it too easy to pass (Turkey) to not really working (here). My proposal is scrap DRS and open up the KERS regulations in terms of energy storage, and increase the output to something like 130-150 kW. It would probably make it a slightly more relevant development. Right now, compared to things like hybrid LMP cars and the 911 GT3-R hybrid, it's...
Refueling is quite expensive, both from the pure costs to keep the machines ready and from the risk involved to your mechanics, the driver, the entire pit lane, your race, ...
says the guy who judged someone based on the car they drive. you deserve all the neg rep you got just for that alone. IMO
lets end this crap now. you dont like F1 and some of us dont like the excuses you make for the lack of success of your team. agree to disagree, end of argument.
