Can we talk about how good Valtteri Bottas is with Mercedes?

2018-05-16 22:57:22

Honestly once this season is over. I kinda don’t want the teams to change at all. Maybe switch Kimi and Danny Ric??? But honestly Valtteri is insane and such a good guy. I love him and Lewis. The WO9 might be waking up and I have a feeling we’re about to see one hell of a Mercedes run thru the mid season, and then Ferrari make a run at the end, but Mercedes taking the conductors, and Lewis winning the Drivers.

How solid are the options for the teams that would want to use them?

2018-05-16 22:41:56

I know Renault and Haas have options on HULK/ KMAG respectively - but how solid are these options generally for the teams? I guess it depends on the individual contract but do they, 100%, have the first right of refusal?

Will Monaco be on the calendar forever?

2018-05-16 22:21:07

So it's pretty much a consensus that Monaco kinda sucks in terms of quality of racing. Right now "tradition" is the main reason Monaco is still on the calendar, and the glamour of the venue (not the racing) is why a lot of people romanticize the event. But will "tradition" and "glamour" be enough to keep it on the calendar?

Regardless of that, what measures can be taken to improve the quality of the racing at Monaco? Or, failing that, what measures can be taken to improve the show of Monaco, irrespective of the quality of the racing?

Should Williams consider giving more FP1 sessions to Kubica for car development?

2018-05-16 21:18:00

Williams clearly gets a large portion of their budget from their drivers so replacing on of them with Kubica is probably not possible, but should they consider giving him more FP1 sessions in order to develop the car and give their race drivers a baseline setup to work with? Both Stroll and Sirotkin are young drivers who don’t have a lot of experience with what a good F1 car should actually handle like, and even though Sirotkin has a degree in Race Car Engineering, they probably don’t know how to dial in the setup as well as Kubica. The race drivers are good enough that they can bring home points and put up good races, and I feel like having Kubica replace one of them at as many FP1 as possible would push the car and therefore their own results forward.

Sub 1 minute qualifying times in Austria?

2018-05-16 19:12:29

Last weekend in Spain saw a massive inter-year decrease in pole position times from a 1:19.149 in 2017 to a 1:16.173 this year.

Given that last year's Austrian GP pole position was a 1:04.251, and that teams have around a month and a half until this year's event for development and upgrades, could we be seeing qualifying times into the 00:59.xxx region?

Feedback on an idea for a new qualy format.

2018-05-16 18:56:00

First post so pls forgive any errors.

A few years ago Bernie realised what we’ve all known for some time, the qualifying format wasn’t really working. There followed some good & some not so good adjustments to the format, but to my mind the problem persists. I’ve had this concept rattling round my head for sometime and wanted to run it past you guys. The new format would basically consist of the following 2 sessions:

Q1 This would be an inter team battle where the teammate with the quickest time would go through to Q2. The slower team mate would be placed in the last 11 places of the grid, the position would be set by the time differential to their teammate. So if for example Hamilton was 0.1s behind Botas and Vandorn was 0.09s behind Alonso, then Vandorn would start ahead of Hamilton.

Q2 This would be a straight out the faster the lap the higher up the grid you are session.

I think this format would create a really interesting & exciting qualy from start to finish & have the added bonus of really spicing up the race with a lot of overtakes. Please let me know what you think.

Off to Monaco for my first overseas F1 experience. What can I expect?

2018-05-16 18:15:29

That's one off my Bucket list at least, but is there anything I should keep an eye out for or Experience?

It seems (maybe I'm wrong here) but as a rather cramped street circuit, there maybe less to do around the track compared to say, Barcelona or other tracks. Is this correct? is there anywhere that would be good to congregate for some atmosphere? Obviously my Yacht is in the garage (typical!) and the Helicopter has a broken thingiebob so near the circuit would be good.

Anything I should be aware of?

Cheers good fellows!

2018-05-16 10:51:27

Raikkönen looked like a rookie with Vettel from 2015-2017, but now he seemed to have upped his pace, beating / matching Vettel. Bottas similarly, was heavily outqualified and outraced, but this season, he seemed to have stepped up on both fronts.

To be fair, though, most teammate battles are fairly close this year, barring McLaren and probably Haas. What gives?

Ways around the engine limit.

2018-05-16 09:43:05

It seems like the teams and the fans of F1 all dislike the fact that the teams are limited to 3 engines per year. I am curious what r/formula1 thinks could be done about this to make a better system.

I think that a 'luxury tax' system might work well. Using the constructors championship, the higher placed teams would need to pay a fee for any extra engine they use, which would be distributed to all the teams from 4-10. For example, if Seb used a 4th engine, they need to pay 100,000 to each team from 4-10 in the constructors championship.

The team last in the constructors would get unlimited free engines. Being last place, this would help them be more competitive, but also they are not likely to use many engines, since they have a much lower budget then the other teams anyway.

Do you think we could ever see something like this? What would you suggest instead?

Next steps for Formula 1? Ground effect!

2018-05-16 07:40:33

It is my opinion that full-on ground effect should return to the sport. In fact why stop there, bring on suction cars. Teams should be let completely of the chain aerodynamically.

Very quickly a point would be reached where the cars could outdrive the drivers and I think that would level the playing field just enough for the constructors to allow freak results on a regular basis and ensure very interesting racing. What do you think?

In defense of Romain Grosjean (and why he will still be at Haas)

2018-05-16 05:49:54

Grosjean has been getting a lot of flack lately for underperforming. (And yes he has). The move he pulled in Spain was dangerous and I am not surprised by the penalty. Should it be a race ban? Probably not. Put a penalty yes. The thing with Haas F1 is that they don’t care about Grosjean pre 2016. When they signed Grosjean for the 2016 season they already knew what type of driver he was and he showed them with a fantastic 6th place in Australia. He ended up finishing the first season strong while Gutierrez did not score a single point. Grosjean did crash the car on the way to the grid in Brazil but other than that the season was pretty strong.

Come 2017 he continued the points haul. Magnussen stepped in as well yet he was still seen as a strong driver. By the end of 2017 Haas F1s car was not receiving upgrades unlike Renault and Torro Rosso and they slipped behind. While Grosjean failed to score points, so too did Magnussen.

This 2018 season has been dismal. However barring the Spanish incident Grosjean is doing ok. In Australia he was in 5th before the pit stop failure. I’m Baku he raced a nearly perfect race! (Before then screwing it up). Grosjean is not as poor a driver as his results dictate.

With Steiner behind him, Grosjean clearly likes Haas. He has grown up with the team for better and worse and simply tossing him away would be a disservice to how Grosjean has helped the team develop. The team certainly wouldn’t be a top midfield team if it weren’t for him.

As such, even with the 0pts this season. Grosjean will be back next year. He still has 16 races to get points and right the ship. Obviously he has pressure and if he doesn’t score soon he may indeed be out. But I cannot see him simply being tossed away mid season or at the end of the year. All Grosjean needs is a clean race. A 10th place finish. Something to get his confidence back. If Haas has a fast car in Monaco, he could indeed do that even with the 3 place grid penalty.

To those that mention 2012, Haas doesn’t care To those that say he will be gone next year, give it a few more races To those that think Grosjean is awful. Just remember we were just criticizing Magnussen and now it seems people are supporting him?

Grosjean is important to Haas F1 and he cares about Haas. He will likely right the ship and be fine by the end of the year. Just give him a few more races and then decide. We are less than 1/4 of the way through the season.

Should the Monaco GP be changed to more resemble the 24hr of Le mans and the Indy 500

2018-05-16 03:57:47

In both IndyCar and WEC these races are the crown Jewel of the season and more important not only in prestige but also have a more cars than normal and give more points than regular races.

Meanwhile the Monaco GP is just another GP. The only thing we get it Thursday practice instead of Friday practice. Yeeyy..... How would you feel about this changing?
