F1 2010 Canadian GP

Thu Jun 03, 2010 10:09 pm

I figured I'd start this topic a week out mostly because I'm so excited about being able to be there in person once again after a "year off" for the Canadian race in Montreal. I'll be at the top of the grandstand on the exit of the hairpin, look for the guy decked out in Massa gear if the TV sweeps over our section  .

As for the prospects for the race, I think the consensus is that Mclaren will have a slight edge based on the long straight and low speed corners that Montreal features, but keep in mind that the Ferrari might finally start showing their Bahrain form again on a track they've always done well on, and it'd be almost insane to bet against Red Bull for pole position on Saturday. Also, Schumacher has had many dominant wins here (and he's never once been out-qualified or out-raced by a teammate here, except when his car breaks) so if the car is quick, I'd put money on him being on the podium, especially if any of the traditional Montreal carnage takes out a Macca or RBR. Force India also do well on these types of tracks, so I think that Sutil will make a return to Q3 and score some points. My bet for the top 4 on Sunday-
1. Hammy
2. Webber
3. Schumacher
4. Button

Now for a lap of the circuit-

I think the Red Bulls will battle for the best time in the qualifying, but will be careful in the race. McLarens will try to get another good result after the 1-2 in Turkey. And of course Kubica will be strong in Canada, perhaps finishing on the podium.

Whilst you could say MS has retired twice because of a broken car one was only broken because he smashed it up against the wall!

Admittedly his record in Montreal is quite impressive.

I agree. It looks as though McLaren have a straight line speed advantage over Red Bull, and in Montreal, a straight line speed advantage is very beneficial.

I think we can even lock this in as a McLaren 1-2. Hopefully, Vettel will be on the podium   maybe we'll hear his side of the story of the events in Turkey.

I think it will only happen if the RBR drivers will have a close encounter again. And the chance that this will happen again is not that big. But I'm all for a Mclaren 1-2 as it would spice things up even more on the score board.
When in doubt, flat out!

Can't agree with 3.

At Istanbul, for the first half of the race, the Mercedes was nearly a second a lap slower than the Red Bulls and McLarens. I can't see anywhere near that big an improvement in two weeks.

Quoting sudden (Reply 6):

The combination of slowish corners and long straights should be better for the McLarens rather than the Red Bulls. I think McLaren are most peooples favourites for Canada. If it were Silverstone, then they might as well give it to Red Bull now!

Definitely true, that was my first F1 race I attended in person and that's the day the "champion's wall" gained its notoriety, IIRC Damon Hill, Villeneuve, and MSC all smashed their cars on the same piece of concrete.

The sad part about it is that Ferrari gave up on 2009 early on to focus on 2010, yet McLaren and RBR continued with development in 2009 until the end. Yet they can't seem to get on the pace of McLaren and RBR. Maybe too much focus on the F-duct thinking it delivered a greater performance advantage than it does?

Whilst oil has been poured on the troubled waters at Red Bull(likely BP oil though!!) things may not be all that rosey at McLaren..

Quoting Planet F1:
Hamilton later revealed that he was surprised by Button's attack as he had been told to save fuel, with radio messages in a video extract from the official F1 website backing up his claim.

McLaren: "Lewis, we need you to save fuel. Both cars are doing the same."

Hamilton acknowledged the team's request before saying: "Jenson's closing in on me, you guys."

Hamilton: "If I back off, is Jenson going to pass me or not?"

McLaren: "No, Lewis. No."

A few moments later, Button tried to do exactly that.

So who was stabbing Hammy in the back, the team or Jenson??

No stabbing at all if you ask me. Button was not told that he could not overtake Hamilton as that would have been a team order, so I can't see that Button did anything wrong. If the team told him "no" they must have used smoke signals to advise Button not to overtake Hamilton in that case.

They did - they told both drivers to save fuel. The only issue being when, exactly, each driver was told. After the tussle, Button was very forcibly told "Fuel critical, slow down!" I don't know how much clearer team orders need to be.

When a team is on the verge of a 1-2 I have absolutely no issue with team orders. The drivers should be told to maintain position and maximise the team's points. It's a team sport. We've just seen what happens when this isn't the case. The rule about team orders needs to be thown out, it's completely unenforcable and the type of coded messages we've seen are making a mokery of the rule. I just think the FIA is too stupid to see it.   

Quoting stealthz (Reply 19):

Possibly because Hamilton's engineer believed that Button's engineer had told him to "save fuel" as well?

If I knew the answer to that I would be spending the rest of the season on the Mclaren pitwall I think.  
Serious though, I have no clue as I'm just speculating.

Quoting scbriml (Reply 20):

Fair enough, but "save fuel" without change of engine mapping on the steering can be done differently by the driver. What I mean is that if both drivers were told to set fuel mix whatever, then that would turn down the engine itself. Would have been more convenient then "saving fuel" as a team order.

I think it's good that Button went for it which gave us as spectators something to look at. Right or wrong can be discussed, but it was still good fun.

Quoting scbriml (Reply 20):

I think FIA knows it all to well but it would mean that they basically would need to check teams data after the race to see if the "save fuel" was justified. And if not, punish them!? Teams will always find ways to get around it one way or the other.
When in doubt, flat out!

Personally, I don't believe there ever was a fuel issue. IMHO, the message to "save fuel" clearly meant "maintain station and take the 1-2 we have on track".

Whilst I have had (and still do) have some resevations about the intelligence or downright fairness of some at the FIA I don't think they are that stupid. It does allow them "plausible denial" though, they can hold their hand on their heart and say they detected no team orders!!

They know it happens. It's just not blatant or direct anymore. Maybe allow them so long as the driver is within X seconds of the other or at certain stages of the championship. you don't want to wind up with another farce like what happened with MSC and Barrichello in Austria a few years back.

Jean Todt says FOTA can't decide the tyre supplier. One would have thought the FIA were involved and FOTA wouldn't have been that dumb. Or perhaps with the FIA sitting on their hands the teams were left with no option but to press ahead so they can obtain data to design their cars.

I think it's a good solution. I mentioned sowhere else, most of the stuff done at Renault is more or less based around Kubica, in Ferrari that wouldn't happen. This season should end with a good result which could mean new sponsors for 2011. The rate of development of the car is good and the results are continously improving. What more could you want (a McLaren or RedBull maybe).
Besides what other option would Massa have? Mercedes (if Schumi would go) or Renault or ?

Looks like the silly season is going to be very uneventful despite rampant speculation. Merc, Macca, Ferrari, RBR, and Renault are all basically set in stone, minus Petrov's seat which if he continues to improve will probably be his once again next season. I'm fine with that, I think the quality of drivers in the top teams is at an all time high and I like the teammate matchups that we have, they're fun to debate about

This is all speculations. At Ferrari Kubica would not have to worry about any of that. In my mind it's about time that Kubica is linked to one of the top teams as he belong up there. I can't imagine that Kubica finds this a good solution. Otherwise he would not have signed an option agreement with Ferrari.

How about a team that already has major sponsors, and money to feed their drivers?  

Besides, I find that Massa has done his part. Only reason that I see him remain with the team is to help and bring in points for the WCC, while Alonso will put back the no. 1 on a Ferrari.

Yes, only look at Ferrari now, not that fast... You don't need to be in a top team to win the WDC, it helps a lot though.

So... if the Bulls start alongside the grid and by some misfortune end up knocking each other out in the first corner, will Mark and Basti be duking it out in the gravel pits? I reckon it wouldn't look too good for Vettel but you never know... Vettel could do some of that funky hand gesturing and catch Mark off guard.

I'm still impressed Button and Hammy (who ironically now has Buttons in his ears) managed to escape a similar fiasco. A great display of skill and discipline, but quite a bit of luck at work too after having come in contact. I hope we're presented with more such brilliant racing this weekend. Unfortunately, they probably worked on their smoke signals over the last two weeks. I imagine all the teams had a good talk with their drivers. Sigh.

Dan, I see you left Vettel out of your top 4. I hope this isn't just because he was naughty  
As much as I'd like to see Schumacher take 4th I don't see them matching the Bulls' pace. On the other hand, I could easily see an over-eager and vindictive Vettel end up against the wall - perhaps even blowing his chances during quali Alonso style. Not all is good in the bullpen - they'll be battling it out for that top spot and may end up pushing just a little too hard. Particularly Vettel.

Given that Mark is a product of Queanbeyan high school, he can probably hold his own in a fight.

Given that Mark is a product of Queanbeyan high school, he can probably hold his own in a fight.

I didn't even have to click the link on google as it was rather self-explanatory

I'm betting on him parking it in the wall of champions.

Wonder what they would blame it on.

Well then. Mark should be more careful where he disposes of those visor strips.

In other news, Hamilton and Vettel not happy with slippery track and option tires:

Vettel: http://formula-one.speedtv.com/artic...-but-tire-graining-a-real-problem/

Good news. Makes it more challenging, preferrably adding an extra stop too. Throw in some light intermittent rain and it's all good.

Couple images from today before I crash, hoping it's not raining during the historic GP qualifying session tomorrow morning...

2 German titans fighting, Schumi dove around the inside and took Vettel on the corner exit, though it was just for fun obviously as it was practice.

Hightlight of the weekend, historic GP cars! 30 of them, including 3 Ferraris and a BRM! Going to record plenty of videos of these tomorrow...

An old Williams and the 6 wheeled Renault/Tyrell ?
The hairpin looks much smaller on your photos than on tv.

KS
How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

Open to correction but doubt it will stand up, I am pretty certain there was never a 6 wheel Renault/ Tyrrell

Cool! Thanks for that. You seem to favour that spot on the track. When Kubica had is crash in -08, you were on the opposite side from where you are now, right? How does the Lotus sound?
When in doubt, flat out!

Hope you didn't put any money on it!

Quote:
The P34's golden moment came in the Swedish Grand Prix. Scheckter and Depailler finished first and second, and to date Scheckter is the only driver ever to win a race in a six-wheeled car. He left the team at the end of the season, insisting that the six-wheeler was "a piece of junk!"
6 wheels?!?!

Never any doubt there was a 6 wheel Tyrrell but willing to put money there was never a Renault powered one!
