Anything from Sauber vs VGV at Melbourne in there yet?
Sauber signed a contract for VDG to drive with them in 2015, then signed son of Eric too while VDG had already paid for his seat. There were rumours that Sutil had a 2015 race contract too
>sauber sign 4 driver contracts for 2015
>sutil, ericsson, nasr and van der garde
>ericsson and nasr the only two given a race seat
>van der garde sues, doesn't want any amount of money, only wants to drive the car
>sauber have to buckle and let him have a seat fitting

Pretty terrible weekend for track action but lovely atmosphere, and the way they planned so much of the race and atmosphere around the baseball stadium was pretty cool.
Anyhow, night night lads. Interlagos next.
Okay looks like post race threads are bad idea to have this thing going. It's really fucking slow.
So we putting this off now and I think I will try it next time before HUEHUEHUE GP starts, like a hour before. Sorry boys, see you next time and tell that Canada cunt to choke on syrup.

There's a meme in there somewhere for Choco Villeneuve
Well let me put it this way. I can't remember watching those races and feeling disappointment and frustration as intense as post race today.
There was no good on track battle anywhere in the field aside from Bottas and Kimi, and if there were I've already forgot about them.
I'll be pulling a 720p copy of the Sky coverage to my file server later. If you can tell me about when to look I'll pull a screencap.
Is there any other post-race stuff to watch on an Ace stream? I still have the SkySports F1 stream up but they're resorting to reruns at this point.
As a Finn, what's your opinion on kimi v bottas?
Want to know just how much worse than Alonso Kimi is?
Last year Alonso had 161 points. So far this year, Raikkonen has 123.
Despite having a significantly better car this year, Raikkonen would need to score 40 points in the last two races, or a race win and a third place, in order to beat Alonso's total from last year.
If you combine the 2014 and 2015 seasons, Alonso has 172 points. Raikkonen has 178.
Here. Nevermind, I only skimmed your post and thought you were talking about the Mexicans pushing the barrier back after Vettel's crash at today's race.
Not sure when I'll have the Russian GP, I lost everything when my RAID completely shit itself a couple weeks ago and re-downloading that race isn't a huge priority for me.
always happy to do a better job than you.
Belgium was by far the worst race of the season because it came 6 weeks after that amazing Hungary GP and it reaffirmed that MWL wasn't going anywhere. Italy was also a terrible race, but the overall weekend was better than Belgium.

i wish people would lay off him. he didn't do much wrong last season (fuck shitierrez) and he has not really put a foot wrong this season - ironically, grosjean has had a massive race crash which seems to be of his fault, and maldonado hasn't - yet nobody shat on him like they automatically would on maldonado.

I think we can all agree that Max will kill himself in an F1 related accident before he ever finishes on a podium.
Why is the kid always so risky, /f1/? Why is he so arrogant about it as well? Does he not recognize the danger he puts himself in when he takes the entire curb on the outside just to overtake?
his popularity in the netherlands will bring back the dutch gp at zandvoort
and he will crash out in the first lap of his home race, taking too much speed through the audi s and flying over the barrier, killing himself on landing

unrelated: is anyone else waiting for the grand prix radio transcript to be broadcast? i want to see if rosberg made similar comments to hamilton about the extra pit stop.
if it turns out rosberg just went along with it, it further proves what a complete bitch boy hamilton is - and anything but a team player.
niki ruled it out last year.

I find this not very accurate, it lacks several cars (for example, many missing pre-qualifiers of the last 80s or the 1995 Simtek bearing the number #31), however the concept is noice

You can thank Red Bull's PR Machine for that. There was a specific article a while ago talking about it, but I can't find it right now. May have been on ESPN.
is Hakkinen the most overrated driver in recent memory? perhaps only Alonslow can rival him in that regard (ffs why do so many still think Alonso, given equal cars, is the best driver on the grid?)
Alonso is definitely overrated, but I'd say Hakkinen is the opposite of that. His lack of motivation at the start of 2000 is probably the only thing that makes other god tier drivers stand up to him. His natural talent eclipses that of any other driver in history, including MSC (who was heavily carried by his unbelievable work ethic, leadership and determination), Senna and Prost.
>(ffs why do so many still think Alonso, given equal cars, is the best driver on the grid?)
That depends on the car. Alonso has a pretty definitive case of Fisichellitis, but unlike Schumacher (who was similarly exposed in 1999 when Irvine, in a very easy to drive Ferrari, was very close to him in the championship before he broke his legs), his natural pace is not that good. What carries the likes of him and Ricciardo is his ability to adapt and make cars with issues work, but he's easily beaten by Vettel and Hamilton in a tier 1 car.
>Alonso from last year is going to outscore Kimi from this year
>F14 T was arguably the 6th best car that year. Closer to the Toro Rosso than the Force India
>SF15-T is easily the second best car and depending on the circuit can equal the Mercedes
I think this demonstrates more how utterly shit Kimi is.
hakkinen didnt win as much as he would have because he was against schumacher.
its like being up against a team of michael jordans or something. youre lucky to even win one championship
He probably could've won more races, but he had shit luck in 1997 and no motivation after his horror crash early in 2001. 1999 was also down to Ferrari easily having the best car in the second half of the season.
I have no problem with this. Mika spent 5 years of his career in a non-championship winning car, and retired after less than 10 years in F1.
Raikkonen was one of the best on the grid 2002-2008, was pretty good when he came back and bad since he 2014. I'll still cheer for him but I'm not blind to reality.
Hakkinen is not overrated. Schumacher considered him a driver that posed a serious challenge to him. If Hakkinen is overrated, Schumacher is overrated.
I don't know if I'd say his natural talent eclipses all other drivers. Jim Clark, Senna and MSC are all easily arguable cases for that.
As for your point about Alonso/Ricciardo, I agree with you that it is their adaptability which makes them so highly rated, arguably very justifiably. While I agree that Vettel and possibly Lewis (hard to tell since the only stat you can reference is 2007, which was 5-4 in quali to Lewis, in his rookie year) would beat Fernando/Ricciardo over one lap, I don't know if they would over a race distance. Their adaptability (see: Alonso, Schumacher, Prost) tends to make them better racers overall.
MSC wasn't really overly talented. You're underestimating the insanity of his work ethic. Senna is up there in that regard too, probably one of the first of his kind, while Clark is overrated in general.
I'm saying MSC could certainly be argued to have that much talent. He was overly talented. The reason he was so successful was his combination of the work ethic and raw talent.
He immediately possessed all the characteristics of a world champion, and that's down to talent.
But as you say, it was his incredible work-rate a drive that made him as successful as he was. I'd argue that Alesi could be considered one of the most talented F1 drivers of all time but he didn't have the drive to perfect himself and rally his team around him. He tried hard, no doubt, but he didn't try MSC hard.
I don't think Clark is overrated in general.

As for the rest of the track. Straights followed by chicanes or chicane-like corners. Felt like monza, but I like Monza better. Maybe because Mexico had a bit too much of a Tilke feel and look?

Agreed. Too much runoff, too little grass/gravel.

Fucking why? There are other forms of motorsport out there, cheaper than F1 too. Hubsy would have no problem bankrolling seasons in Blancpain or IMSA or something, why quit racing entirely?
So F1 didn't work out, big fucking woop it doesn't work out for 99% of drivers that aim for it, how do you think the talent pool for all-pro GT and Prototype teams got so fucking deep? Fuck you Susie, go drive a GT3 and quit being a complete pussy.
She was languishing in DTM for ages like everyone else with a dead-end driving career and she was still worse than everyone. She's got nowhere else to go. The only reason she was allowed near F1 was because of Toto.

yeah, that too.
it seems renault ARE taking over lotus:
>Renault personnel have already started to integrate themselves back at Enstone ahead of the return of its works team to Formula 1 next season,Autosportcan reveal.
Autosportcan also confirm that afterresigning a fortnight ago from his technical consultant rolewith Manor, Bob Bell is set for an imminent return to Renault as its planned takeover of Lotus continues
and they're going to stick with palmer as a renault works driver? fucking hell. it'd better be for 2016 only.
So, if renault returns next year already, Mercedes surely doesn't want them to have access to their engine? As Lotus still has a Mercedes contract for 2016. So Lotus(Renault) back to Renault engines and Red Bull gets the Mercedes units? Come on Lauda, make it happen!
mercedes are supplying manor, so it's renault or nothing for lotus/renault. mercedes will likely say we are supplying 3 teams, which is enough.
lauda will apparently leave mercedes as he fell out with wolff about supplying red bull - lauda wanted it, wolff didn't.
If Renault are taking 2016 as a year to build and consolidate a 'new' team then they probably see drivers as unimportant (see Honda), with a plan to replace them both in 2017 with some more competitive ones. Of course, being Renault, it's entirely possible they have no idea what the fuck they're doing.
It's true. Lewis is not a ruthless competitor that, for example:
-Insists that the contracts of himself and his teammate explicitly reflect that he is #1 driver
-Runs into competitors on track on purpose to disable their cars and grant him the win
-Parks his car during qualifying to prevent further times to be set
To be fair, Hamilton's only competition for all his championships has been his own teammate and he's mentally stronger than Rosberg. But it's not written into his contract that he gets #1 treatment. He just drives better than his teammate, fair and square.
basically everyone holds that view on maldonado - but not on grosjean (anymore).
in f1, pastor has never had a crash as bad as grosjean at spa in 2012. and he has not had a huge crash in a race this year - grosjean has. pastor is finally showing consistency this year.
>Insists that the contracts of himself and his teammate explicitly reflect that he is #1 driver
It is impressive how well you seem to know the internal workings of Schumacher's contracts.
>Runs into competitors on track on purpose to disable their cars
I thought you Amerifats loved that kind of stuff (pic related)
Also, Lewis doesn't have a career full of performances like Spa '95, Spain '96, Monaco '97, Spa '97, Hungary '98, Malaysia '01, France '04, China '06 or Brazil '06
He may be good, but he's not yet near Schumacher levels of good.
But his consistency seems to have cost him his speed as he hasn't had a great single outstanding performance this year like he had in previous ones. Grosjean got that podium.
Also lets be fair to Grosjean he is mostly liked over Pastor by the majority of people because he doesn't look like an axe wielding murderer. He also has such a nice attitude and the way he talks about his family and his beautiful, hot yet homely wife is endearing. Not to mention mention that speaking English in a French accent is way nicer than English in a Venezuelan accent.
>One of the fastest singleseater series outside of F1

Seems fine to me. Just got to wait a year for Jenson or Fernando to have a mental breakdown.
>there are people out there who literally believe Hamilton is better than MSC
>there are people out there who believe Lewis' championships aren't carbabby championships/lucky championships and are more deserved than the Michael's
Not to mention
>unironically worshipping Senna, while criticizing Schumacher's driving tacticts
Anyone who worships Senna and shits on Schumacher has clearly never seen Senna drive and is just
it could be it's more that he doesn't get on with how the lotus handles. i think he is closer to grosjean than this year shows.
grosjean complains semi-often on the radio - pastor never does.
yes, grosjean got a podium, but pastor could have been thereabouts had his pu not shat itself when he rode the curb. if you discount the podium, there are only four points between them.
finally, pastor rescued him cousin from tje 2012 williams fire. top bloke t b h.
>grosjean complains semi-often on the radio - pastor never does.
You can't really use that as an argument as no one outside of FOM has ever received full radio transcripts from any race, ever. They control the radio and for all we know Pastor swears at his engineers but they don't broadcast it because in his accent it would make children cry and he pays FOM off to not broadcast them.
>Pastor rescued him cousin from the 2012 williams fire
Yeah but anybody would do that. That doesn't make him a top bloke it just means he's a normal human being.
What is he going to do? fucking leave him to die in a pit fire?
Wouldn't be surprised if Hamilton's fan club chief told Schumacher to switch on brain as well.
I have no problem with people loving Senna. I love Senna. But people act as though he's the indisputable GOAT or choose to ignore certain parts of his career.
I also hate people that dislike him purely for this, or claim he's only rated because he was killed. He would be remembered just as fondly as he is today, and would probably hold way more records than he does. Just not by as many people and especially not by as many casual F1 fans who have never seen Senna actually in a race.
He was obviously a great driver, I am just a bit sick of people trying to make out like he was God on Earth. He's not rated just because he was killed but there are some people out there that wouldn't give a shit if he wasn't dead.
>You don't need to see the contact, it was clearly demonstrated on track
If you list out instances of team orders actually used on track, you'll find Austria '98, France '99, and Austria 2001-'02.
How does 4 team decisions over a period of 5 seasons scream 'explicitly stated Number 1'?
The fact is, none of Schumacher's team mates had the pace to match him regularly, which is why they were usually behind. A number 1 - number 2 explicit contract was unnecessary.
Apparently, one of the reasons why Schumacher's teammates looked so weak was because the car was built to Schumacher's liking and his teammates had a hard time adjusting to that.
But the rest is not demonstrable 'out on the track', which is what the Brit said. For the rest, there is no indication of a Number 1/2 scenario, since no contract clauses are known.
It can't be both explicit and 'visible on track', yet have no supporting evidence at the same time, either contractually or on track.
But if the other driver had the ability to be as quick and as consistent as Schumacher, then why would any sane team create a Number1/2 dynamic anyway? Would it not be in their best interests to have 2 competitive drivers instead of 1?
>If you list out instances of team orders actually used on track, you'll find Austria '98, France '99, and Austria 2001-'02.
direct team orders are one thing, but there's also preferential race strategy
Ferrrari at that time was pretty much Schumi's team. No surprise that he and Ross left at the same time..
>Ferrrari at that time was pretty much Schumi's team.
It was his team because he was faster. Anything else would be illogical on the team's part.
Ebin cat pic
>Would it not be in their best interests to have 2 competitive drivers instead of 1?
There is evidence that having 2 evenly matched drivers can be detrimental. For example, if Mclaren had Hamilton (or Alonso) plus Kovalainen for 2007 they would have got the WDC.
Your point about No.1 and No. 2 drivers isn't correct. For a team interested in taking the WDC as opposed to the WCC (in a non-dominant car) it is not a bad move. See Williams '86. In a non-dominant car, to win a WDC, one driver has to be better than the other. Otherwise, the wins that that car would theoretically get would be split between two drivers. Another team who either favored one driver or who had one driver vastly better than the other (see Ham/Kovalainen) will get the same amount of wins as the other team got with two drivers all with one driver = more points. Otherwise it's a dominant car.
Ferrari and Benetton completely backed Schumacher, but that doesn't mean the other guy didn't have a chance. As you say, there weren't an overt amount of direct orders to make it otherwise. These teams saw how good he was (both on track and off) and knew to back him, which slightly disadvantaged his teamates. But if they had been good enough and mounted a real challenge it would be interesting to see what happened.
But do you not think that Ferrari chose to bring him and all his team members from Benetton because he was fast and good at building the team/ developing the car?
If another driver had come in and challenged Schumacher every race weekend and Ferrari put team orders into place to ensure he won, then you could make an argument that he only won due to No.1 status. But that wasn't the case and for the most infamous case of team orders, Austria 2002, he had won 4/5 races that year while Reubens had won none (which made it entirely unnecessary but that's not the point here.) If it was 2 wins each at that point then there would be a case.
>And he took key Benetton staff with him
And they went because they wanted to work with the best. Rory Byrne explicitly said that he put off retirement because he got the chance to work with Michael again.
I'm well aware of '86 and 2007. The point being that the team would naturally back the faster driver, because it doesn't make logical sense in backing the slower one.
If any of Schumacher's team mates had anywhere near the same ability, would they not have shown it on track?
There's simply no evidence for a Number 1 dynamic, other than Schumacher being quicker on track, despite the fact that none of his team mates ever showed world-beating pace elsewhere either.
I don't think anyone is arguing that he had an "undisputed No.1 status" within the team. Even if he did we'll never know because that situation never happened.
He was No.1 because he won more often than not. Just the fact that these team orders happened at all is evidence of him having a No.1 status within the team. An earned status, but one nonetheless. The team knew he was ahead in the points table and favored him over the other driver to achieve their seasonal goal. . Rubens showed that he could be faster than MSC on track in Austria '02, but Michael still won. That's No.1 status
>Altitude seemed to be irrelevant, despite all the pre-race hype.
it meant that the renault engines were competitive for once because while their ice and hybrid are shite, their turbo is magnificent
and we also saw 365/370kph speeds which isn't something that'd happen if this circuit was at sea level
even with their monaco wing levels, williams were surprisingly quick

Veritably, the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez is an excellent addition to the Formula 1 calendar, and, to the hordes of enthusiastic local fans who packed its grandstands to the rafters today, I hereby say: we're sorry we offered you neither thrills nor spills, but next year we'll be in the mix, mark my words."

Thanks Mr. Boullier
>Rubens showed that he could be faster than MSC on track in Austria '02
Yes, but when such occasions are few and far between, it makes sense to favor the stronger driver.
I'm not arguing he wasn't Number 1. Just to be clear, I'm arguing that his successes and championships aren't, because he was a faster driver in the long run of a season. He was number 1 because he was faster, not because he was contracted to be.
So they were not allowed to show their pace at other cars either? At no point in their careers (before or after their stint alongside him) did any of his teammates show championship winning potential.
The Ferrari won the WCC that year, even with Schumacher missing 6 races. That car was bretty good, m8. Had Schumacher not had his leg break, it's pretty much accepted that he would have won that year.
>and they're going to stick with palmer as a renault works driver? fucking hell.
renault were attempting to get money from both bernie and red bull to help pay for lotus, so it only makes sense that they have two pay drivers too.
Red Bull has an engine
>The result is that Renault have agreed to manufacture and supply Red Bull Racing for the near future, the co-designed 12 token upgraded ICE, whilst Red Bull will supply their own ERS components for the F1 power unit.

Thank god, I actually like Red Bull and muh boy Rickyardo so this is good news. Even if it sounds like a patchwork frankenstein monster with Red Bull doubling down on their bets.
>The Red Bull Racing power unit for 2016 is expected to be branded as Infiniti, should they and Reanult-Nissan agree on this.
Are there any new engine manufacturer perks they can capitalize on still in place?
>RBR will be running the Renault 12 token upgraded engine in Brazil, having passed on using it in both Austin and Mexico. This power unit upgrade has been the result of a joint effort between Renault and the Red Bull appointed consultant Mario Illien. TJ13 has learned that the reason Red Bull have refused to run this PU at the past two races is because no agreement on joint intellectual property had been finalised. The deal is now done.

He's literally the worst WDC.
worst wdc is graham hill. only won 1962 because clark's lotus had shit reliability and won 1968 because clark died.
plus he was effectively a murderer. shouldn't have flown that plane, which he knew, and he did not have a current license.
It was only amateur level rallycross, never that serious, but it was quite good fun.
We were cycling on a bike trail, she was to the right of me and the guy just came around the crest straight into the back of us. Next thing I remember is that I was in a hospital two days later. The driver fled the scene and the found him a few days later dead from a overdose.
I don't really know how to even process it, which is why I haven't, but sometimes at night I dream about killing him.
Worst WDC is actually Jenson MR OVERRATED Button.
Who only won because he was racing Barrichello for half the season. Once the other cars became more competitive he barely managed to win the championship.
I can't stand it when Sky talk about Button as if he is some accomplished driver, he is not, he is a midfield driver that got extremely lucky one season. Rosberg is better than him.
>Who only won because he was racing Barrichello for half the season
Said Barrichello driving better than him more often than not but being crippled by his car. Seriously, Brawn GP cost Rubens 20 points (back when that was a thing) at least that season.
>expand track, giving a 20 meter runoff around the turns
>penalize drivers for "abusing limits" (with major inconsistency) when they take advantage of it
Is there any worse cancer in modern F1? Just put back the gravel and grass if you don't want drivers using it. It's not fucking hard. The massive runoffs everywhere also look ridiculous.

lots of good drivers this year

With the 16 points he scored, he wouldn't have even been WDC in 1950 when they had 7 races and 9 points per win
Bully gonna quit and drive to the left
Because Schumacher challenged for titles when the car wasn't the best in the field (see '97-'98) and won races when it was significantly slower than the best car ('96).
Even Irvine himself has stated that he was never capable of what Schumacher managed in '96. Apparently, that Ferrari handled like a turd, and was extremely unpredictable in its handling, and the fact that Schumacher got 4 poles and 3 wins in that car blew him away.
I hope 2016 gets a bit more exciting.
Or maybe things will be way better in 2017 with the new rules/designs.
That being said, are there stuff already confirmed for 2016 besides everyone still having turbo hybrids?
