    Actually it wasn't tire management. The team is saying he had wing damage which caused lack of front downforce (remember him complaining of severe understeer) which resulted in the tire wear....

    So, with the news that Haas will be going with two new drivers next year - who do you think will be in?
    I'm guessing Perez & Mick.

    Another snip from another article in the same place I quoted before. It seems to answer why Lewis did what he did, as well as confirming that the team knew it might be a problem.

    Dazey, you shouldn't be so quick to pull out the Haters card. Looks to me like Baggy is asking an honest question. As for your question: "That all the drivers were told during the stewards meeting...

    Yes, but on the other hand...
    Maybe skipping the whole season might have helped some teams close the shop for good.

    From the one article that I read, although it's called the fastest of all time, it only goes back as far as 1983. The data they are using is comparing qualy lap times against teammates. So Hamilton...

    Road cars are built so that the brakes start to squeal if the brake pads are wearing too thin. If F1 teams can't interpret vibrations and graining as signs of tire wear, maybe the FIA needs to get...

    All the cars but no spectators would be better than all the spectators and (virtually) no cars (like the Indy F1 a number of years ago).

    I just want to address the parts I've high lighted. I have to disagree with you here. The absence of breakdowns has nothing to do with the 'maturity of the sport' as you say. It has to do with the...

    He's not letting Bottas win, he's orchestrating a Mercedes 1-2. You see, if Hamilton scampered off into the distance and lapped the entire field (like we all know he easily could), Bottas would...

    I don't think they are too worried about 2 sec wheel changes, as the article mentions 'self-healing tyres'. Other features include top speeds of 500kph (so it won't be slow), AI co-pilot (R2-D2?) and...

    So lets assume he is that good. Good enough to potentially win the drivers title. Suppose Red Bull or Ferrari or Mercedes come calling. Does he move from daddy's team to have a chance at a title?...

    Give him back the 8 points that he lost in Sochi due to team orders and he'd be third overall. So you're saying his results are respectable then?
