    Good luck getting out of the gravel pit!

    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    I have no idea where it is located, but I would guess closer to Silverstone than Sochi.

    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    Yes, it doesn't look like Sochi.


    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    Speaking of the Russian Grand Prix, apparently it and the next race in Austin represent a opportunity for McLaren to equal and break a significant team record:

    If McLaren fails to win either of the upcoming Grand Prix in Russia and America it will set a new record for the longest gap between race wins in the team’s Formula 1 history.

    The British team will equal the current largest gap between its race victories, a sequence of 53 races held between the 1977 Japanese Grand Prix and the 1981 British Grand Prix, if it does not win this weekend’s race in Sochi.

    I think they have a pretty good shot at breaking and extending this streak record. 


    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    I think the qualifying results in Sochi show that the Soft+Super Soft combination, that everyone seemed focused on after Singapore had nothing to do with Mercedes issues there. I think it's entirely an issue with the heat and humidity at Malaysia and Singapore


    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    Well lets se if this time nico remain first in the start, hope so .... Maybe we see some fight with lewis, then in gp2 we will see vettel figthing with bottas

    Don't you mean Alonso fighting with Merhi and Stevens in GP2?

    Jeeps, that Honda engine is in reverse on the straights. Honda can do so much better than this, surely..

    What a cock up move by FA, he won't win FA next year either..

    Raikonnen is handed a 30sec  penalty for the  collision with Bottas  that consequently gives Mercedes the constructors' championship. kiss

    I guess the drama continued till after the race


    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    Rosberg just can't catch a break.

    A moderately interesting race for the final podium spot, up until Raikkonen took out Bottas.

    I think next year Pirelli need to bring an Ultra Soft tire.


    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    Cant stand this tire bullshit strategy stuff. Just have the one compound tire and let the drivers go hell for leather, with still allowing tire changes of course. Lets just have racing, well as much as we can in this complex industry.

    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    Pit stops are a traditional part of motorsport. They've cut out refueling, if they cut out tire changes, there won't be any pit stops, except the occasional front wing replacement. These days, the pit stops are sometimes the only exciting part of the race.

     


    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    The whole Putin thing was awkward lol. It's like a parent that has turned up to someone's 21st birthday party uninvited. The guys are trying to be polite to him but really didn't know what to say to him so he's just left standing there. 


    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    Well... Hamilton did give him a champagne shower..

    Re: 2015 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    I think Hamilton had a comfortable chat with Putin, Vettel thanked him for the Event and Perez was very warm towards him.

    IMO Putin is a master of PR and a man of many faces.

    apias:

    ... I think next year Pirelli need to bring an Ultra Soft tire.

    I was just joking about this at the time, but...

    ... 

    The latest plan is for Pirelli to bring a default prime tyre, for example the soft last weekend in Sochi, and teams will be able to pick two other tyres from the range.

    So you might select three sets of super soft plus three sets of the new “ultra soft”, about which not much is known as yet. It will give teams enough tyres to have some strategy options. ...
