Seeing what he's done with Red Bull, I hope he does.

Instead of the hard and medium compounds, Pirelli will bring medium and soft to the Hungarian GP.

Makes sense, seeing as the compounds are now harder, which means that its still what, medium/hard compounds on par with this year correct?

I'll pretend that this is a rhetorical question. :lol:


On another note, I found some interesting statistics (courtesy of F1Hirek):
Image
Forgive me for the Hungarian text... (The text in red says "Average incidents per GPs)"
So this table shows the technical errors, the slippings and the crashes per GPs in the aforementioned years. While there is a lot less technical errors and slippings (that result in DNF), the number of crashes increased.
The writer of the article claims that the drivers make less errors because they are not performing at their best. They have to look after the Pirellis so much, that neither the cars, nor the drivers push the boundaries anymore...

Not really rhetorical. They changed two compounds from last year and kept two from last year. Im trying to remember which way it was; Wasnt it a brand new supersoft with the medium/hard becoming the soft/medium or something like that? They deffinitely kept two tyres but downgraded them.

I'm not sure if this has been posted in the forum yet (apologies if it has!), but Adam Parr (ex-Williams) has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the 2nd printing of his book: The Art of War, Five Years in Formula One. For as little as £10, you can support the project & you'll get a copy of the book (if campaign reaches the goal). More details here:

lol! Mercedes will be given the tyre test data by Pirelli. So what was the point in banning them from participating? Utter load of bollocks from this pathetically ran sport.

Well, if Mr. Ecclestone gets convicted, then we can say goodbye to the Hungaroring... And I'm not sure how to feel about that.

I rather sacrifice the hungaroring then to still have that old, senile, demented Monkey who does nothing else but pump $ into Ferrari and Red Bull while the smaller Teams need to fight for survival. Ofc, Mr. B has done a lot for Formula 1, but he also killed alot, and giving Advantages to teams like ferrari... well, i wont miss B. Ecclestone tbh.

I can totally see your point, and I agree that Bernie's time is up...
But as a Hungarian I'd miss the Hungaroring. However, no one in their right mind would keep the track in its current condition... except Ecclestone. This circuit needs some serious changes, not just touch-ups that conceal the problems. However, Hungary doesn't have the money to build a new racing line and develop the infrastructure. Since the Hungaroring is only used a couple times a year, it doesn't make any profit... On the contrary.

It hosted a race every year since 1986, so it's kinda a traditional circuit... Also, it held the first GP behind the Iron Curtain.
All in all, I wouldn't be surprised if the Hungaroring would be cut from the calendar. But I would still miss it.

It's the public prosecution department of Munich in Bavaria. They're known for their harsh and rigid treatment against suspects. Good luck on this one, Ecclestone.

Felipe looks a shadow of the driver that we saw from 2006 to 2009. He's had a life-threatening injury and then in his comeback phase had a teammate take away any say in the team he had before.
