David Coultard has come up with a fine idea to make driving F1 harder. Just make the cars faster.

Forget about the nonsense of banning radio use. The former McLaren and Red Bull driver even thinks the radio clampdown is counterproductive, as it removes one of F1's "technological advancements" only to replace it with "another layer of bureaucracy and red tape.

"If someone offered you the chance to get rid of Internet banking and go back to just making all your transactions the old-fashioned way, via a cashier, would you accept? Of course you wouldn't," said Coulthard.

"In my opinion, if you want to make the cars harder to drive, make them faster. It is ironic that they are trying to find ways of making life more difficult for the drivers when the actual cars are slower than they were back in 2004," added Coulthard.

It would seem that DC has pointed out the Emperor's New Clothes.

I can tell you we are probably looking at it from the back end.  Other than that, it means nothing to me until it is in a car lapping with times.

This is a race I am usually excitedly awaiting.  It has provided some interesting racing over the years.

It was built as a test circuit for Honda back in 1962, which also makes it one of the oldest circuits on the tour.  The first time Formula 1 raced there however, did not come until 1987.  It has had upgrades over the years and has only been "modified" three times in its 54 years.  In 1983, a chicane was added before the last turn to slow the cars for the pit straight, and Degner (turn #8) was modified to make it two turns, or in reality perhaps, a double-apex curve.  2002 saw minor modifications in that the chicane was changes slightly and the esses were straighten a bit to make them faster (don't see that often).

There is some fairly significant elevation change in the climb from the hairpin up to Spoon curve.  This is where the Mercedes cars should truly outperform the others based upon previous races.

There will still be only one DRS zone.  It remains on the front straight, but frankly speaking, I would like to see it changed to the run down to 130R - perhaps too dangerous?

The track is 5.8km so about 3.6 miles.  It is also unique in that the layout is a figure eight, not clockwise, nor anti-clockwise.
The lap record was set by a V-10 McLaren in the hands of Kimi at 1:31.540.
Race winners on the current grid:  Vettel (4), Button, Alonso, Kimi, and while Hamilton won the Japanese GP, it was at Fuji, where Alonso also won a race.
Looking at the current situation and relative pace of the cars, I give Alonso a chance at a win here.  Of course, I know that Mercedes and Williams will both be very actively trying to do likewise with either of their drivers.

Currently, rain is forecast for Friday and Sunday.  One of the most exciting wet race finishes I can recall was the Japanese GP in 200? between Massa and Kubica: It was in Fuji, but . . .

In any case, FFP in two days (for me any way since it be Thursday night here).

This really happened.    Really.

A friend's father recently past away. This past week-end, I was helping her fill out some government paperwork for some Transfer-On-Death stock. One section of the paperwork contained the following blanks to fill in:

Decedent's name:
Date of death:
Address at time of death:
Daytime phone number:


Daytime phone number??? I don't know if he took his mobile with him, but I'm fairly sure he's out of range.

I read in F1 websites that Honda are willing to buy out Alonso's contract for 30 Mill Euros to get him in a Macca seat next season.

Smart for both Macca and Ferrari as the Red team could use the cash to get their cars up to the pointy end again and Honda has lots of it to throw around.
Now, can Alonso work with Ron once again?

Encouraged by none other than Mr E, what's he up to?   :DntKnw:     

If true this doesn't seem to fit with a future of 3 car teams.  :confused:
