F1 2010 Season

Recommended Posts

 

Now to get rid of the new tracks where overtaking is not really possible in most corners and sections of the track. Australia is the future of racing.

 

Fixed.

 

It was an entertaining race. But I agree, what were McLaren thinking pitting Hamilton? He had a good chance of winning, with an almost guaranteed second.

 

 

Incredibly good call on Buttons side, i love how the commentators (at least on British TV) kept saying it was the wrong decision and that he had ruined his race, then carries on to win.

 

Webber used to be named the unluckiest man in F1, I think he has spread that luck to the whole team. Two races now Vettel could have won but the car let him down. I wouldn't be surprised if he had a rage at his engineers.

 

I personally think it's because of the car itself, it's one of the fastest cars in F1 as you may have noticed Vettel is the one who's always capable of driving away from everyone due to his driving skills of course but like I said I think the car's really great BUT that's also why I think that the car isn't that reliable and thus happens to have more problems during races like what happened twice already.

 

Maybe it STILL is just a small technical problem in the car that can be fixed, either way Vettel had some bad luck.

 

I can't wait for this sunday's race.

The crash was a shame, took out quite a few cars and left like 16 or so racing. Then Vettell's brake problem, I was shocked. Can't wait for Kuala Lumpar (or however you spell it, Malaysia one.)

What an interesting qualifying.................

 

Massa, Hamilton, Alonso and Button, like 17-21st? WOW.

 

And Webber 1.4 seconds ahead of the pack? DOUBLE WOW.

 

Going to be a VERY interesting race.

A much better race with both Ferraris and McLarens making their way through the pack. It was a bit of a procession again until Hamilton, Massa and Alonso pitted for tyres and then it got interesting. Credit to Alonso for driving the race without a clutch and at times being nearly 2 seconds faster than anyone else, shows that he really is an incredible driver.

Great showing from Alguersuari and Sutil too :thumbup:

Well done to Virgin for finishing their first race too :grin:

I don't know whether to laugh or be shocked.

 

 

He must have been so scared. It was at the end of the Back straight before the hairpin in China's Friday practice today. If i remember rightly, that is the longest straight in F1, meaning he must have been travelling at 180mph at least. luckily the car got into the gravel trap before a barrier.

I really enjoyed watching todays race. Despite lots of things going wrong, and the safety car being out twice, the whole race has certainly been my favourite this season, especially after the epic bore that the first race was.

Wahey somebody else posted so I can post again.

 

I agree, it was a good race. *cough*long straight with hairpin at end*cough*. Once again Button excelled in the changeable conditions and made the correct choice. He may not have had the best outright speed but you don't need to if you make the decisions that give you 70 seconds over everybody else.

 

There were more overtakes than you could probably list, it was just action throughout.

 

I'm loving just how consistent Kubica has been so far this season, he really should be in a better team, he has shown with bad teams that he can get results, but nobody really seems to give him a chance.

I only managed to watch a few laps of this Sunday's race. From what I saw it was really exciting, previous races this season have made my interest dwindle a bit

This Sunday's though (I listened to the most of it on the radio) has go me extremely excited again!

I do love it when a car breaks down, it adds a bit more mortality to some of the better cars but it seems that Vettel really is in a rough patch.

Then again, as a Brit and friends with Hamilton's younger brother (everyone loves a good name drop?) - I wont be complaining

How unlucky can Hamilton get. Two laps from the end getting a puncture and going straight into a wall.

 

Webber- Great race, nobody could really touch him

Alsonso - Got lucky getting past Vettel, but still raced very well

Vettel - unlucky in the pits, but maybe he would have lost out at the end anyway with his brakes turning to dust. Seriously, when your management is constantly telling you to slow down, it is critical.

Hamilton - Just wow

 

Button and Schumacher also did very well. Schumacher is just too experienced, he is almost unpassable.

 

 

Next week, the grandfather of shows for the rich, the Monaco GP.

That was hella unlucky for Hamilton.

Good race imo. Schumacher did look good blocking all those attempts from button trying to pass, would have been a very different race if he had passed. Very impressed with the red bulls. Also, virgin racing did well, both finished, well done them.

Very much looking forward to monaco this week. Should be good.

I heard today, watching practice one for Monaco, that Buttons display on his steering wheel was out from lap 3, and that Schumacher was driving very defensively. Amazing driving from Button as thats the case.

 

Practice today looks good, not got time to watch practice 2 just now, despite it being on right now. It looks like anyones at the moment. Should be crazy good qualifying, not too excited about the race.

 

Sorry about the fact I'm posting again, but its been a few days, and its practice day =)

Nope, I think it will be at Silverstone at the revised track: http://www.silverstone.co.uk/track/circuit-maps/newgrandprix-circuit/

 

I also think they may be moving the Pits to the straight before Abbey corner, but i doubt that will be done for this year.

 

Also, very stupid rule for which Schumacher was penalised.

Good race, I watched all of it. Webber drove like a hero, Button was pretty unlucky and Alonso did well. I love the Monaco circuit, even if overtaking is hard it's still exciting just because of the history of the place. Can't believe Schumacher has been penalised like that, seems stupid. If the safety car was coming in then that indcates that the race was on again. It didn't end with the safety car out.

Pretty much sums it up. I really wanted Button to get Hamilton towards the end too!

My dislike of Vettel is growing more and more, quite simply he's a dangerous driver but I am glad that Webber managed to finish the race and I hope he beats Vettel in the drivers championship. Aside from that incident and the battle between Button and Hamilton that was probably the worst race of the season for entertainment value.

Ferrari and Mercedes need to get a move on, they're in danger of being passed by Renault.

Well if you want to believe the media, because they favour Vettel :P In all seriousness though, that was ridiculous. He could have finished 3rd, maybe 2nd had they pit him when he had his 11 second lead, but instead they waited until Hamilton was on top of him.

Best race of the season by far though!

Hope to see Schumacher penalised for his appalling defending against Kubica and Massa, seems he thinks he's an exception to the rules. Alonso was unlucky to have been overtaken as a result of traffic by both McLarens. Huge congratulations to Kovalainen for finally finishing above one of the big teams and job well done to Lotus too :thumbup:

Spectacular crash for Webber, must have been scary just seeing sky. Shows the safety levels of the cars and the bonus of having the roll bar.

Yea, i can't imagine what he felt when it flipped. Kudos to Vettel, really think he will win it this year. Button seems extremely lucky, whenever he qualifies lower down the grid everyone between him and a podium spot seem to crash etc.

Saw most of it, hell of a drive from Button and Vettel to get back to where they did. Solid work from Webber and Hamilton too, Webber's clearly showing he's a serious championship contender.

All I can say is thank god Webber won that and Vettel didn't, disappointed that Vettel even got into the points and he really showed during the race that he expects everything to go his way as until the safety car he wasn't even trying. Christian Horner (RBR Boss) failed to hide his disappointment that Webber won as well, and when Eddie Jordan asked him about it he completely dodged the question.

Steward's decision on Alonso was unfair and I'm sure we'll hear a lot about that over the next few days :P

Great drives by Hamilton, Button and Barrichello though. If the RBR in-fighting doesn't finish anytime soon McLaren will probably win both championships with an inferior car.
