    Re: 2011 F1 Pre-Season

    I love pre season... everyone is talking about improving.. only few can

    Thanks for these articles. I usually read the major rules, my favorites and of course i have a close look at all the new cars. Im in love with the new Benz Silverarrow and the Renault looks sweet too in 80s retro. The season is going to give lots of amazing close up shots!

    Re: 2011 F1 Pre-Season

    only when the flag drops the BS stops...


    Re: 2011 F1 Pre-Season

    Personally speaking, I haven't read too many unrealistic statements from the teams - most have expressed optimism for the season ahead - but none are making silly claims about where they stand compared to the others etc. Truth is - it's just waaaay too early to say anything meaningful. It's just good to watch progress in testing ...

    I think Mercedes having hydraulic problems wasn't great for them - Red Bull and Ferrari have been aiming for reliability - Vettel and Alonso both did over 90 laps - which is more than a race distance. They know it's a very long season and scoring points every race is more important than winning a few races here and there.
