Schumacher cautious but expecting to win in 2011
would be interesting to know how little brawn invested in the 2010 car back in 2009 when it was his pocket financing it. fact is, schumacher entered the year saying it will be a learning year and a development year so they could push in 2011. the fact that rosberg scored well doesnt say schumacher is no good, just says rosberg is brilliant. everyone knocks schumacher and frankly i'm sick of the negative reports. bring on 2011 and a good car. the car is the most important thing in f1. if schumacher was in webber's car this year he'd be an 8 time world champion.

Team orders to be 'regulated' not banned - Todt
this has nothing to do with the result at abu dhabi. this is just about the role of team orders. we saw red bull try to manipulate a result with the 'save fuel' call when vettel hit webber, todt is basically saying he wants to avoid the mess of conspiracies etc. apparently mclaren used coded messages early in the year with something like 'the cat is in the tree'. before 2010 the issue was timing of pitstops to orchestrate a team pass, now with no refueling they have to use 'save fuel' as a call. the only way to regulate this is to make the constructors championship the only one that matters, all finances etc. should be based on team position. drivers championship should not benefit a team in any way other than bragging rights. when vettel hit webber the team lost 25 points trying to hand a 7 point advantage to vettel. almost cost them both titles. not making the call would have handed vettel the championship even with an alonso second in abu dhabi. more importantly they'd have won the constructors in korea.

Lotus name dispute escalates with Indycar deal
Lotus got free advertising and gauged the interest of fans worldwide. no idea why they dont do a red bull and help fund a junior team too. why not have 4 lotus badged cars?? especially if one of them costs you nothing. and even though they were 3rd last, we all loved seeing them beat branson's team.

'Tragic ex-hero' Schumacher should retire again - Hakkinen
there is absolutely no validity in any of this. fact: brawn spent nothing in 2009 developing the 2010 car fact: mercedes came late to the table - ie. any development budget was hampered by the minimal testing and timeframe - they pumped their car out in the same time as lotus/virgin... and were just a bit quicker! fact: mercedes have been working on their 2011 car for 2 months already - with schumacher who is employed more for his abilities at communicating with engineers/designers (testing feedback) than anything fact: read back to the february articles with schumacher. they were never pushing for a win or a title in 2010, it was a formation year. if a car designed and built for schumacher isnt enough to deliver him wins etc then let hakkinen have a say. it was TEAM ORDERS that gave him his win in 1998 in melbourne and his subsequent first world title.

Mateschitz denies Webber strategy plot to fool Alonso
hate to say, but i agree there was no sense in stopping webber. he should have stopped under safety car - like rosberg and co. it would have placed him up in a solid 4th maybe even 3rd. never enough for the championship. in reality, vettle - love or hate him - rose to the challenge in the last 4 races with what would have been 4 straight wins if his engine lasted in korea.

Red Bull should stick with fair play policy - Alonso
racing is not a gentleman's sport. the greatest drivers - senna and schumacher - were ruthless, devisive, arrogant and brilliant. the reason alonso is looking good for a 3rd championship is because he is also great at seizing opportunities allowed through 'flexible interpretation of the rules' i remember a schumacher win in silverstone - on his way into pits to serve a stop/go penalty, senna deliberately crashed a competitor to win a championship (as did schumacher). remember it's not long ago that that ruthlessness was a desired attribute in a driver. political correctness moves faster in theory than in reality.

FIA to increase maximum F1 stewards penalty
irrelevant. ferrari win the championship?? how much would any team pay for that. only option is a rulee like: if team manipulates result in a way clear to fans and organisers they will be removed from the resuts and stripped of points that race.

F1 histrionics hit high gear at Interlagos
what a load of rubbish. earlier in the year red bull removed an upgrade from webber's car to give to vettel. webber has every right to be disappointed. vettel has been erratic and even without webber as team mate he'd be in as bad a points position. truth is, if alonso, kubica, hamilton or rosberg (and perhaps a few others) were in his car they would have won already. i have never seen a season - and statisticians will probably show it's never happened) where the pole car has won so few races. webber and vettel have been able to drive the best car with the attitude of 'we'll win anyway, doesnt matter if we hit stuff' alonso in an underperforming car has slowly run them down, and vettel has not lead the driver's championship all season. in fact can anyone think of a time in his career he has lead? i dont doubt vettel's pace, just his maturity and the long term good of having a team that worships him. hamilton would have been a 2 time champion by now if his team hadn't been stroking his ego all the way.

Horner admits Vettel engine situation 'not ideal'
'Christian Horner hopes Sebastian Vettel's engine situation does not further dent his championship chances.' - shows how removed from reality he is. how can a loss of 32 points to alonso in one incident not dent his chances.

Berger says Webber tried to take out title rivals
berger's an idiot. the only old drivers that keep a voice in the press are the ones that take a sensational view of things. the reality is that as webber crossed the track his front right was over 2" in the air, meaning a complete rear suspension failure. no wheel no brake. with only 2 wheels to potentially slow the vehicle the braking efficiency would have been at best 40%, then consider the fact that only 1 turning wheel was in contact with the road, making the car impossible to control and you lose further brake efficiency (brakes only work in a straight line). also, the most dangerous crash in f1 is to be in a stationary car, sideways on track with a car T-Boning you. remember when (zanardi?? ) lost his legs in champ car... to summarise, webber miraculously guided a car he couldnt stop and couldnt steer into place that could have killed him... intentionally. get back in the aged home berger, you drove in a very corrupt and malicious era of f1.

Button should help Hamilton now, thinks Horner
stupid. they'll (maybe) have a constructors title but i wouldnt put money on a drivers title now (although the odds should have blown out once horner said this).

2010 Korean Grand Prix - RESULTS
agreed on button. he proved last year that if he has HIS car under him, watch out. brawn is a master of getting the right team to make the right car for the right driver. if i'm right, 2011 will be very good for schumacher... alonso is MOST DESERVING of 210 title, in that he's not made any mistakes and got the most out of the car. if vettel, webber or hamilton win it will be that they 'got away with it' alonso, rosberg and kubica most consistent in 2010.

2010 Korean Grand Prix - RESULTS
a very interesting race. what ever happened webber was in trouble. if he'd have been still on track he'd have been queued behind vettel in pits under safety car and fought for minor points. wonder if 'the light's no good' (vettel) referred to the engine light or ambient light :-) i have no doubt he felt the failure coming and wanted an early end to the race. today is the day red bull need to consider their only chance at a drivers championship is to play the points game and go for webber wins next 2 races. if vettel, webber, alonso finish in that order next 2 races, they BOTH lose championship by 5 points. alonso 261 webber 256 vettel 256 in fact that gives alonso the mathematical ability to finish 4th - behind hamilton - and still win by 1... remember mclaren with both cars in 2006, will we see another ferrari drivers championship as a result of no team orders from competitors??? it will be thanks to massa's magnanimous move and a team not afraid to strategise a title win. interesting side bar: reverse the 'team order' result (subtract 5 from alonso) and we see a 3 way split of 256, with vettel and alonso on 5 wins and webber on 4... ferrari made the right call

Red Bull admits to 'building team around Vettel'
bad strategy. what about when rbr are off pace and he gets an offer from ferrari??? do they really think he'd say no? ferrari took years to re-establish post schumacher/brawn, and schumacher had reason to be loyal - he was already in the seat everyone wanted.
