Formula 1-fi (Read the First Post!) - Page 74

post #1096 of 1282

Hi,

 

I am really into Formula 1 and I have been trying to get an account with the Planet F1 Forum and I have had no success at all. Even with 2 different user names. It suggests contacting the administrator but I can't do that because to do so, I need to be able to log in which I can't! All of the things is suggests doing for help requires a log in. It said that an e-mail had been sent to them but I have not received anything back at all.

 

If anybody uses the Planet F1 forum and would be able to help in any way, you you please send me a PM. I would very much appreciate it.

 

I am not sure if this is the best place to post this since but this is the only thread about F1 on this forum that I am aware of, I wanted to ask here.

 

I can remove this post if it shouldn't be here.

 

 

Thanks.

I've got the same problem. I think it's just a screwy forum.

 

While we're on the subject, predictions for the weekend? I said it last week - and got burned then - but it's really looking like maybe Kimi has turned a corner on the 2014 car, and he's always done well at the Hungaroring... Maybe this will be the first time he beats Alonso in a race?

 

And Lewis for the win. Nico has never been lucky here, and Lewis is due his fair share of luck. Based on practice it looks unlikely to be anything but a Mercedes 1-2, however.

I went on to the main Planet F1 page and wrote an e-mail asking my problems. They said that I should have got an email from the forum but I simply didn't. I ended up getting on thanks to the administrator so it may be worth you sending an e-mail to if you are having the same problems as I was.

 

 

Unless Mercedes have any of their technical problems, I think they could well be finishing 1 - 2. I think that Bottas will probably be 3rd if he races the same way he has been recently. I think he should easily be in the top 3 since he proved he could finish 2nd when he started below 10th that time.

 

It will just depend where they qualify.

Brave prediction. Kind of backfired completly though lol. It looks like Alonso feedback during his many years at Ferrari meant he got a car nobody can drive except himself lol but overall is not efficient at all. 

 

Comfortable pole for Nico, I don´t know if Hamilton is just unlucky like Webber or he is just harder on the material like Webber. Likely the later.

Kimi, Kimi... :mad:

 

Alonso and Kimi have such polar opposite driving styles I suppose it was inevitable the car wouldn't really suit Kimi right off, but this has been a trying season to be a Raikkonen fan. Oh well, at least I like Bianchi too... :rolleyes:

Nico should get his 5th of the season.

post #1102 of 1282

Realistically, the only way he won't is with a mechanical failure - or possibly a late safety car. The Mercedes has been superior in race pace to qualifying every time this year, so if we're seeing a 0.5 second gap in qualy then I expect we'll see whatever gap Rosberg feels like in the race, probably about 20 seconds after which he'll just look after his tyres.

 

The real questions are: How far up the order can Lewis make it? On such a tight track will he be tempted to go for an inadvisable move and take himself out? What will go wrong for Kimi Raikkonen? What will go wrong for Felipe Massa?

 

Race Prediction (Click to show)
1. N. Rosberg
2. S. Vettel
3. D. Ricciardo
4. V. Bottas
5. L. Hamilton
6. F. Alonso
7. J. Button
8. K. Magnussen
9. S. Perez
10. D. Kvyat

DNF: Maldonado, Massa, Kobayashi, Raikkonen, Grosjean

 

Maybe Maldonado takes Rosberg out at the first corner, opening the race and the championship up!

Yup. There have been enough "Race incident's" this year that it's surprising Britney hasn't gotten tagged by a back market yet. Perhaps when everyones through punting Massa around they'll get to him.

Kimi. The one thing he and Alonso actually have in common is they both jumped to the wrong teams twice in their careers.

Just imagine how different the post-Schumi era would have been if Alonso was at Red Bull and Kimi never left McLaren. As the established driver, familiar with the car and able to make it work for him, would Kimi still have had a shot at the 2007 title? What about 2008 (certainly it seems likely McLaren would have had the WCC)? Would he have ever left the sport, if not for Ferrari? And is there any way Alonso wouldn't be a 7-time World Champion now?

I could easily have seen Kimi in Hamiltons place running with Merc right now. Alonso at RB yeah, and he'd probably be in the hunt for the WC this year. I wonder at times who gives these guys their career advice?

post #1106 of 1282

Why am I starting to feel like Mercedes actually sided more with Rosberg than Hamilton... They know Lewis is fighting Nico for the title, and they kept on telling him to let Nico pass?

post #1107 of 1282

Now that's what you'd call a race, mates! Absolutely unpredictable outcomes & a total thriller, definitely one of the best races of the season for me.

They are team mates hired by the team to give as good race positions for Mercedes. Rosberg was on option tires and a different strategy. No point for Hamilton to lower the pace to keep Rosberg behind. Now Rosberg would need to get up to the gearbox first of course.

 

If they didn´t want Hamilton to perform as good as possible why did they give him full power to the end knowing Hamilton has a history of destroying the car lol I have no clue where these conspiracy theories come from to be honest :)

 

Really superb race.

post #1109 of 1282

btw it was a bit hard follow this and 24h SPA simultaneously. How come Massa ended up beating Bottas so comfortably? Massa is a fast driver but he is not known for handling wet conditions all that well ;).

 

Rosbergs performance on the restart was abysmal can´t sleep well about that but he had some brake issue earlier on if that had anything to do with it. 

God I wish there was more transparency in F1 lol

Well I am particularly impressed by Hamilton's move on Vergne and Ricciardo's move on Hamilton.
