Nice idea! And this can also be converted into a road safety tagline: "The best drivers in the world don't talk while driving, why should you?"

Fellipe Massa's view on the radio ban:

Click for story

He reckons the cars today have so many settings and if they arent controlled at the right time it could results in cars catching fire and unexpected stoppages on track. He does put a few decent points across and it isn't just a rant.

EDIT: Further changes to the radio ban:

[quote]
Quote:
Formula One racing’s governing body, the FIA, has revised its planned restrictions on pit-to-car radio and pit board messages ahead of this weekend’s 2014 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix.

Messages concerning a driver’s own performance will not be allowed, but the expected ban on those relating to car performance will now be postponed until 2015 to give teams more time to prepare.

Last week teams were advised that any radio transmissions including information related to the performance of the car or driver would be considered a contravention of Article 20.1 of the sporting regulations. This states that "the driver must drive the car alone and unaided”. A lengthy list of banned message types was subsequently issued.

However, that list has now been revised to the below, after the FIA met with team managers in Singapore and decided to delay restricting car performance messages until next season due to the complexity of introducing such a ban at short notice and the potential for significantly differing effects between teams.

The changes to permitted pit-to-car communications follows recent media scrutiny about the amount of information being given to drivers by their race engineers, particularly in terms of how they can gain lap time.

Messages not permitted (by radio or pit board)

- Driving lines on the circuit.
- Contact with kerbs.
- Car set up parameters for specific corners.
- Comparative or absolute sector time detail of another driver.
- Speeds in corners compared to another driver.
- Gear selection compared with another driver.
- Gear selection in general.
- Braking points.
- Rate of braking compared to another driver.
- Rate of braking or application of brakes in general.
- Car stability under braking.
- Throttle application compared to another driver.
- Throttle application in general.
- Use of DRS compared with another driver.
- Use of any overtake button.
- Driving technique in general.

Maybe Filippe uses more help from his race engineer and he doesn't like the new rules? Maybe they need to look into what would make things dangerous and bring in safety measures asap. Otherwise wait till next season and bring in the new rules. Its upto the teams to make sure the cars will be safe.

FIA has postponed the bulk of a ban on radio and pit board messages until next season after deciding this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix was too early for teams to adapt to the new restrictions.

Teams to be given more time to prepare for changes

This is getting really confusing now.

Since everyone is already in 2015, lets have some action in this thread too.

What goes on 24 Hours after a Formula One race?

Through the eyes of Christian Horner at RBR' Milton Keynes office. Newey printing out everything and all those measuring and drawing instruments on his desk is very amusing. Had always read about that, but nothing like seeing it.

Jules Bianchi's condition is "critical but stable" according to the FIA's head of communication, who was speaking from the Mie hospital.

The 25-year-old suffered a "severe head injury" when he ploughed into a tractor that was recovering Adrian Sutil's Sauber, which had gone off at Turn 7 of the Suzuka circuit.

Bianchi, who was unconscious, was transported by ambulance to the Mie Prefectural General Medical Centre in Yokkaichi, 10 kilometers from the track.

A CT scan revealed that he had suffered a "severe" head injury and he underwent emergency surgery before being moved to ICU.

Reports this morning claimed that he was in a critical condition and relying on a respirator to breathe.

There were, however, no official updates as both the hospital and Bianchi's Marussia team waited for his parents, Philippe and Christine, to arrive at the hospital.

They did so on Monday night after which FIA head of communication Matteo Bonciani gave a brief update on Bianchi's condition.

He revealed that the Frenchman is in a "critical but stable" condition as he spends a second night in hospital.

Bonciani added: "It should be understood that it is very, very serious."

Meanwhile, Sky Sports F1 is reporting that Professor Gerard Saillant, who oversaw the initial treatment of Michael Schumacher following his skiing accident, is set to arrive at the hospital on Tuesday.

Craig Slater is reporting: "We know that Professor Gerard Saillant, who is a good friend of Jean Todt, is due to come here on Tuesday.

"He is one of the world's leading orthopedic surgeons but he advised the Schumacher family when they were undertaking his initial treatment in Grenoble after his skiing accident last December.

"He was a kind of intermediary figure between the doctors treating Schumacher and the family and it seems as though he's going to play a similar role here."

After Caterham, it is Marussia's turn to pull out from the COTA and Brazilian GPs. Looks like we are looking at a 18 car grid for the next couple of races.

Link: http://en.espnf1.com/marussia/motors...ry/180877.html

Quote:
Marussia has also been struggling financially this season and, with Saturday the day cars are shipped to Texas by Formula One Management, it appears the race will be run with just 18 cars.

"Neither of those two teams are going to America," Ecclestone told Reuters.

In the wake of Jules Bianchi's accident at Suzuka Marussia decided to only run Max Chilton's car at the Russian Grand Prix. By missing the race in Austin, Marussia looks likely to also be absent from the Brazilian Grand Prix as cars are shipped directly to Interlagos from America.

Link for Cateham pulling out:
http://en.espnf1.com/caterham/motors...ry/180863.html

Quote:
Caterham have been given special dispensation by Bernie Ecclestone to miss the next two races in the USA and Brazil after the team fell under the control of administrators on Friday.

In effect, administrators Finbarr O'Connell and Henry Shinners of Smith & Williamson are now running the team after previous team boss Colin Kolles handed over control on Friday. They are now looking to sell the team, including its entry to the championship, the cars and intellectual property rights, to a new investor looking to enter Formula One.

Talking Re: The 2014 F1 Season

Rosberg beat Vettel’s 2013 Pole Position Lap at Austin!



But that sound of V8 is definitely mesmerising.

So as predicted earlier, by end of the season 1.6 V6 Turbos has caught V8s hands-down.

So next season (even with additional 20 KGs) we will see even faster lap times when more RMPs are unleashed at top end.

Cheers!

Read on f1racing.net that caterham had a deal with Rubens Barichello to feature in the last three races of the season. Feel we are really missing out on a great moment. Would have been awesome to see Rubens back in the car.

Sidekick trophies are slowly shaping up.

Pole Trophy: Rosberg wins it with 10 poles this season already.

DHL Fastest Lap: Hamilton leads Rosberg 6-5. Unless Hamilton gets the fastest lap tomorrow, this would go down to the last race.

I have read that teams can estimate the HP by analysing engine noise and acoustics. Exactly how it is done, I don't know. I also don't know how it works in this era where a part of the power is supplied by the electric motor.

Was Grosjean in the driving seat of the truck? Looks like he was practicing for this since Spa 2012.

Congrats to Hamilton on the 2014 WDC. A well deserved one.

Feel sorry for Rosberg and sad that again the expected scrap between the two couldn't be witnessed due to a mechanical issue.

It's almost like Rosberg gave up few races back and a mechanical failure to top it in the last race.

Can't wait for 2015 with Honda returning.
