sure does. he's lucky it rained in monaco too, coz jev would have bagged another 6 points. they should have decent pace in canada being a low downforce track. hopefully scj has another solid quali session but doesn't bomb it on lap 1.

"It doesn't matter the talent, it doesn't matter the team, the performance, it's like a lottery. What you achieve in Formula One is not by chance. We need to make clear that if you win a race, it's because you did something better. And I don't think at the moment that this is clear for everybody."

I like what Chickens is saying about the tyre situation now. As much as it can make things interesting, I don't believe the tyres are the best way to make the sport "better".

The fact that the pack is far, far closer together is awesome. DRS encouraging passing is pretty good. But roulette on teams getting a decent setup that doesn't eat tyres, and sitting out of qualy runs to save tyres, is not so great.

it's frustrating because the cars have ended up being very close due to the change in aero regulations, so ironically they didn't even need drs or degrading tyres.

the tyre's are really starting to irk me, because it's simply a game of qualifying as high as possible and then saving tyres in the race. and if you can't qualify at the top of the grid, then don't do a lap and jump everyone who did.

sure, it opens up new strategies like alonso hanging 3+ seconds back from hamilton to save his tyres and then smashing a crazy in lap to jump him in the pits, but we want to see people pushing, not tip toeing around like webber had to. think back to 2010 when webber was going faster and faster each lap. perez and vergne and kovaleinen and all sorts of people were going as fast or faster than the lead pack which is bloody silly.

TIs a bit like what Schuey was saying, the drivers on track should be pushing the themselves and the car to 100%, 100% of the time. Strategy is for the pit wall.

God I miss fuel stops. Haha, I'm just imagining what fuel stops would be like with these tyres. Fuck.

That's a dumb quote from Alonso. Only 1 of the 6 wins has been from a team that "isnt the best".

depends who you believe. planetf1 and others are reporting it as being legal, others are reporting it has now been declared illegal.

guess we'll find out later in the week. even if they have to change it, it's not a major drama. if anything they'll just have to modify it slightly to remove the bridge at the end of it.

no, a clarification doesn't dock points as the cars were legal up until that point. a clarification simply removes the ambiguous language that allows interpretation. the rule has now been clarified and rbr's previous interpretation is no longer valid.

there was no protest, so they just gotta follow the new reading of the rule from now on.

If there was nothing banning it before then no, there is no retrospective rulings so they will be safe. They will just need to work their asses off in the next practice sessions to get a new build of the car working well.

Interesting stuff.

Quote:

Sebastian Vettel could yet move to Ferrari in 2014 after it was revealed that there is a "performance-related" get-out clause in his Red Bull contract.

Last weekend it was reportedly that Vettel would be on his way to Ferrari in 2014 having signed a pre-deal with the Italian stable.

Insiders are adamant that the German has signed an option with Ferrari for 2014, subject to competitive form from the Prancing Horse stable for the rest of 2012," The Independent on Sunday reported. The Times also carried the story. 'Anti-Lag' is now also certain of this contract signing after seeking clarification this past week.

Vettel, though, was quick to publicly pledge his allegiance to Red Bull, saying he is "very happy" where he is.

However, if the reigning World Champion isn't happy in the near future, he could opt out of Red Bull at the end of next year's Championship.

According to Marko, there is a 'get-out' clause in Vettel's contract - from both sides - that would allow him to swap teams.

"2013 is fixed for us but, for 2014, there is a performance-related clause in his contract - for him and for the team," the Red Bull advisor told Germany's Bild.

"It depends on the Championship rankings in 2013 but, if Vettel and Red Bull slip in the Drivers' or Constructors' Championship, he could go elsewhere."

However, triple World Champ Niki Lauda has urged Vettel not to rush into signing a deal with Ferrari as "no one can anticipate where Ferrari will be 2014."

Why the fuck would Webber or Vettel want to go anywhere? They've been the most consistent cars the last three years, and were really good the year Brawn won as well.

I thought most elite sportsman preferred success over money? Although he has already enjoyed success so that may not matter as much.

There is A LOT of prestige in driving for Ferrari. A LOT, plus you get a career for life as one of Ferraris own once you retire from being a driver. Take into account the extra dollars and it becomes apparent why people want to drive for them.

I definitely understand this, but where both teams sit atm, I'd rather be driving at Red Bull. It may change by 2014.

Red Bull rely on other manufacturers for parts where as Ferrari build their own. I would say that in the long term Ferrari is the safer option.
It is definitely a tough choice at the moment, both teams are excellent choices going forward.

Kubica gets new elbow or part thereof, can now steer things.

Quote:

ANSA news agency said the surgery, which was completed successfully, involved the insertion of prostheses in order to restore mobility to Kubica's right elbow.

"Now he can turn the steering wheel completely. Before, he was unable to turn his palm down and was forced to take a hand off the wheel to perform left hand curves," Dr Testoni said.

"The operation was preceded by a series of simulator tests for a formula one car," he added.
