ok so I noticed that there are a lot of scattered F1 grand prix threads out there so I thought we should make a thread for all things F1 where we can discuss the races gone or upcoming and any other Formula One Related Topic:) . also IF this thread becomes successful IF, we might get it made into a sticky so we can find it. Ok so i'm gonna post the remaning Grand Prix dates for the 2007 F1 season. These dates are the actual Race Day (sunday) dates. France: Magny-Cours: 1st July Britain: Silverstone: 8th July Europe: Nurburg: 22nd July Hungary: Budapest: 5th August Turkey: Istanbul: 26th August Italy: Monza: 9th September Belgium: Spa-Francorchamps: 16th September Japan: Fuji Speedway: 30th September China: Shanghai: 7th October Brazil: Sao Paulo: 21st October I'm Looking forward to the French Grand Prix as Honda will reveal their new and hopefully WORKING car:D :gr8: For More Formula One Info Clicky to the Official Formula One Website

Hamilton flying in practice, fastest in both sessions, afternoon was a 1-3 for McLaren, and a 2-4 for Mercedes, looks like being a shootout between them for pole, but when has practice ever shown what the race would be like :Lol:

Great race, gutted for Perez, really thought he was going to win, but it just wasnt to be :(

That Sauber team is awesome, just please Perez, dont go to ferrari because i wont like you at all if you do :lol:

 

Hamilton is starting to turn into Trulli, having great qualifying pace and then not being fast enough in the race :(

He was there before the SC, but after the SC he seemed to just not be fast enough. 

 

Great drives from Kimi, Senna and Vergne aswell, How he drove in those conditions on inters i dont know.

 

Roll on China!

Was routing for Perez to win and it was a shame he went off, Massa is not in it at all and with many saying that Perez could replace him within the next few races (who knows:smileyfrustrated:).

 

Vettel disappointed me with his gesture and comments regarding Karthikeyan after the race as for me it seemed that Vettel cut across him early (not for the first time I think).

 

Jenson, the quicker he forgets about that race the better :smileytongue:, whilst Lewis settling for third after two poor pit stops and being consistent in the first couple of races gaining points whilst some Championship rivals not getting any seems to show that he has matured and knows that consistency is better than getting the odd race win the having collisions and ruining his race, but it seems McLaren don't have great pace in the wet.

 

Need to see a dry, uneventful race to see where most of the teams are pace wise.

it is chinese GP time but we need a very fast call from the F1 teams about Bahrain. (2 year running we have this issue) this is causing me and also BBC & Sky major headaches. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE DURING THE 3 WEEK BREAK and not last minute!

because we have not have any news about if it is canned or not (+ it also causes sight headache for support races) and we will be getting this answer this weekend, these teams should have come togother during the 3 week break not wait until the Chinese round to make just a yes or no call!

it'll never go ahead

 

tbh though i'd rather they just re-instated imola & head into the euorpean season ealrier, bahrain's an awful circuit & even though we havn't seen a race with drs there i doubt it'd significantly improve upon the substandard races that have taken place there pretty much since it inception

If the FIA rule Mercedes' front wing DRS system to be illegal it would be a travisty to all of Motorsport. I believe this for two reasons:

1 - The FIA stated several times to Mercedes that it was legal, so backtracking after it has been installed is not professional in any way and makes a mockery of motorsport considering the FIA is the biggest authority group in motorsport.

2 - After being told and threatened with legal action, teams had to find ways to make cheap advances in a bid to curb the spiralling costs of racing in Formula One. Mercedes have found such a way to keep progress cheap, what kind of message does it send to see that innovative piece of technology banned?

You have to look fully at the context of the argument.
The "f-duct" is only activated when drs is activated, so redbull an lotus say its driver activated, by pushing the drs button it activates the f-duct ( illegal )

Mercedes say it a consequence of the drs being open and is infact a passive device ( legal )

Thing is you start playing the " indirect consequence of a direct action " your opening a massive can of worms, whiting an the fia rarely ban a device for its intended use, it's usually because of the possible future exploitation leaving such devices in could lead to an this case is no different, redbull an lotus are essentially asking " can we circumnavigate any rule in f1 if we alter the order of process of any banned regulation an word it appropriately ?"

Personally I think the fia will deem it legal an then ban any wing stalling devices in any way from next season

well, the Bahrain GP did go ahead and now we are at 4 winners in the 1st 4 GPs so it looks like this championship will be close this year.

Even better is Alonso didn't win in the last race or reach the poduim, the spoilt brat even had something to complain about regarding Rosberg. I hate that jerk, wish he wasn't in F1 at all.

Agreed, he did move once but making Lewis and Fernando go off track was too far imo.

I thought Rosberg would get some sort of penalty whether it be set for that race or the next one, but from what I've heard he's got away with both!

 

Anyway I'm loving F1 this season with all the different winners.

Schumacher next please? :D

mclaren to run a new nose & possibly brake duct ventilation system at montmelo this weekend

 

 

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketinitial thoughts are the new revolutionary brake duct system could give them the ability to manually control tire pressures & temperatures during the race

Good to see Williams win but F1 is becoming a bit of a joke. Hamilton is put to the back of the grid for accidentally being under-fuelled but Schumacher only gets a 5 place grid penalty for smashing Senna off the track? :smileyindifferent:

there is a very good reason why there this 5 grid penalty, next track is Monaco which is tough for cars to overtake and one mistake = dnf + SC. at least Schumacher got a pen, want penalty did you want martyn__gibbs
