post #1081 of 1385

hmm is Mercedez setting up the race for a PR Silverstone Hamilton win? Rosberg got some message about changing gear box setting?

Nico was first to radio in "gearbox problem".

Yes to bad. Ridiculous what difference it is between cars. Silverstone is really hard to overtake on but Lewis could just coast by. No team is getting any closer that is for sure.

18 inch wheels on these cars are not good looking at all.  And about 9 seconds slower.

Ah F1 has been trying to use tires as a limiting factor forever. Not going to work. By 2017 when they get intro'd they will be faster than the current tire and allow more suspension trickery to boot.

I just hope the 18" rims would enable teams to fit in bigger brakes, hence more late braking.

They get any better brakes and they'll be braking after the exit:eek:

 

Theres a lot of stuff you could cram into that extra space there.

Pirelli said they could be ready to go a year earlier if no one else cares about the 2017 contract.

 

I just don't like huge wheels.

 

Speaking of suspension trickery, I noticed this hasn't made it here yet,

Ha ha!

 

 

 

 

Yeah, more cooling and aero and thus smaller brake components thus lighter.

How was that not a safety car incident? When was the last time you saw three marshals running across the start/finish straight right at the exit of the final corner to push a car off the track?

Come on Pudu you must know who was going to benefit from a safety car and that was deemed a NO NO!!!!! :blink:

 

Just look at our avatars.... I could almost hear the Benny Hill Music in the background as the marshals came a running and played chicken on the front straight... Madness!!!!!

 

Question - Why did the 3 marshals cross the road?

 

Answer - So Ham could be denied!

 

- Peace... :L3000:

Seemed obvious to everyone I know.  Sadly.

 

Had to.

I think it's about marshals (and officials) of the German Grand Prix would do everything for Hamilton to not win in Germany. So I guess both drivers got what they wanted; to win in their respective home Grand Prix.
