    Arg, what are the latest rumors on JB?


    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    Normal service resumed in qualifying...surprise

    Let's hope Ferrari get a fast grid start to, at least, make a race of it...

    I think it's going to be Mercedes 1-2. The 2 tracks Mercedes had it's worst result at were Malaysia and Singapore, where the thing they have mainly in common, being right next door to each other, is the climate, which apparently the Mercedes' chassis does not like for some reason, the conditions magnifying their problems with tire temperature/management.

    The only other possible explanation is the proximity to the equator, where the minimized Coriolis effect somehow plays hell with their fuel delivery. 


    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    Mediocre performance of LH, w/o his failure in sector 1 he would have beaten NR easyly!

    But still we can then enjoy a great race catching up NR...

    SV is back where he belongs :-P


    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    Apart from all the work they have putting Kvyat's car back together, Red Bull have put themselves in quite the bind by throwing Renault under the bus. Mercedes won't supply them engines, Ferrari seems reluctant, and might not be able to supply both teams anyway, and it seems unlikely at this point that Audi is going to be entering F1 as an engine supplier any time soon, due to their current woes, allowing some sort of temporary deal. Now there is even talk that at least one team might have to turn to Honda as an engine supplier, which gives an indication of the difficult position they find themselves in.

    And, it appears, if Renault, Lotus and F1 don't come to an agreement in the next couple of days, this could be the last Grand Prix for Lotus. A sad turn of events there, hope it works out in a positive way.

    If it rains, Hamilton. If it stays dry, Rosberg might be able to stay ahead with a good start, maybe.


    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    I see it differently:

    * rain -> LH 1st, NR 4th

    * dry -> LH 1st, NR 2nd


    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    Not really that differently: Note the "might be able" and "maybe" on the dry prediction, and I'm not sure where Rosberg will end up in the rain. Vettel is traditionally very good in the wet, as is Hamilton. Rosberg was definitely a bit skittish last year at Suzuka.


    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    Boring boring race.

    Rosberg should have been aggressive at the start. He should have given diva boy Hami the squeeze before the first corner, NR was way too kind imo..

    I would love to see Mad Max V and Hami in the same team. Max would rattles his cage for sure.

    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    Rosberg can't win: If he gives way, he loses the race. If he holds his line and has contact with Hamilton he gets criticized for driving recklessly. But, yeah, he should have held his line and let the cards fall where they may, just to teach Hamilton a lesson, again.


    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    Thanks heavens for Max - his overtaking being the only bit worth watching...

    Oh, and good luck to him when he takes his road driving test next week!!! smiley

    Ron Dennis:

    “We have Fernando contracted for three years and Jenson contracted for two. We did have an option to terminate Jenson’s contract, but I told him earlier in the week that wasn’t going to happen,”

    Jenson Button:

    “It’s not the right time to say anything yet because nothing is done,” said Button. “I speak to Ron a lot. There have been private meetings. I’ve never talked about our private matters, that’s all I’m going to say.” 


    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    It is a real pleasure to see that McLaren once again is very clear in their communication on the driver setup. Nothing there to be misunderstood or questioned...yes


    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    the true is that F1 sucks...

    to much politics and no fights, if Bernie continues with this strategy soon F1 will not be selling to the tv anymore becuse people don't like it.

    I'm really a F1 fan, since from i was a littel kid i used to watch at IMOLA every F1 race, but now it is booring, no fights to many penalties to many decision after the race..etc...

    More like boring boring season. 


    Re: 2015 Japanese F1 Grand Prix at Suzuka

    Off track is where the excitement is now. The latest rumors are that Button may leave to drive for Lotus/Renault, and that Alonso may leave too. Wouldn't it be fun if they both left and went to Lotus/Renault. That would leave McLaren with whatever drivers are left after Haas announces its drivers today.

    And, the bigger story is: Will Red Bull get an engine and stay in F1, or exit the sport? Niki Lauda thinks they may be done.
