FINALLY!!!!

Post by SteveB » 09 May 2011, 02:54

Well today's race at Istanbul was finally a great race by ALL teams.
I couldn't believe how Shumacher was driving though....it looked like he was a bit confused at times
or maybe it was just his bullish self popping up for a visit....lol
It was a great race. I hope the rest of the season stays similar :D

I agree, it was a good race. The only thing that upsets me now is how some teams who make it to Q3 are now afraid to really set a time. They are afraid to use a set of tires because, if used, they feel their race is ruined. I feel that qualifying is to see who is the fastest driver during the qualifying session. Now it seems the teams are worried that if they use a certain set of tires to set a fast time they have almost no chance at winning the race. To me qualifying and race are two seperate things. I would like to see the FIA say "here is your tire allocation for practice and qualifying and here is your allocation for racing". Then, I feel, that we really we see F1 racing at its best. This is my own opinion, Sorry if it upsets someone-just had to say it.

I agree rich.
I think that PART of Red Bull's 1-2 is due to the fact they saved a set of fresh tires.

I am not taking away that they were untouchable in the qualy session with Vettle setting the quickest
lap ever at Istanbul but in Q3 it should be manditory to run the session or like you said have a set of tires
for each day or just have a set of fresh tires for every team on race day.

IMO I think Red Bull wasn't worried about losing pole they knew they were quickest and was a smart move
not to go out but at the same time was a BIG SLAP in the face to all the other teams IMO.
I am surprised nothing was said about it after the race.....lol

I agree Steve. I am not trying to single out any one team at all. Congrats to Red Bull for doing their off season homework. Also, for that matter, congrats to all teams for the huge improvements made between China and Turkey.

I'm always impressed to watch Button and Hamilton battle it close, fair and, most importantly (figuring they're teammates), clean... 8)

It was great to watch but I think it hurt both drivers a lot of time fighting each other.

Shame for Rosberg blistering his tyres so early in race.

Shumacher should of stayed out of the driving seat and be remember for his greatness he's struggling with all these youngsters.
Next season Paul Di resta at Mercedes :?:

Great race :mrgreen:

I agree "G"
Shumi IMO should have hung up the gloves some moments during the race he looked
like a rookie....lol.... not a 7 time world champion.

I think Micheal Schumacher is just adding more tarnish to his
already tarnished career.Give it up mike...also he says he is not enjoying f1 lately..LOL..
so why is he so surprised that he is so far behind?
I am starting to think he only races because of the money now...

Have pity for the old man. I mean, it's not easy having to learn how to be passed when you're over 40 and have never experienced it before! :lol:

Same goes for looking at the mirrors once in a while, he never needed to do that when he had a red car and the habit has stuck since... It's just not his fault! :wink: :P :!:
