I think Montezemolo means that lower formula is more like "noise" ...it's very loud and the ground rumbles, but nothing special (you can get that from many lower categories). He's saying F1 should be more than just "noise" and more like "music."...more special.
I think Montezemolo said it best when he said that part of F1 is that the sound should be like music, not just noise. It's probably true that Mercedes engines have about +80hp advantage. The former midfield cars (Force India, Williams, etc.) are able to fight for podiums, ahead of Ferrari and Red Bull. Works team Mercedes is about 1 sec/lap ahead, because they were able to fully package the car around the engine, while the other Merc engined teams are just customers that...
never said shitty, just pointed out that it looks like "new Californian" style.
I see. From the pics though it looks like only 1 out of all the sushi doesn't have anything on it (that's why I thought "Californian" style). I wonder if the soy sauce is actually hand made, because it would be actually better just to buy good sauce (the reward is not worth the effort, plus soy beans in the U.S. are not very good). Homemade ponzu is better than buying.
^^ looks like a new "California" version of sushi with all the oils and sauces on every piece.
I don't think there is anything wrong with team orders, but I think it was extremely poor judgement by team to use the words "...is faster than you" so early in the season, and right after Massa came over from Ferrari. The realistic potential to gain any positions was slim, but the loss of trust between the team/driver was huge IMO.I agree it's nice to see to see the drivers having to manage the power. That's how F1 should be.The noise is so-so, but nothing special.The...
Very nice. Never been to that restaurant, but it's famous for the squid (the whole area is). The uni was probably a local variety, which is a bit different from Hokkaido, but still very good. I wonder why you didn't like it so much?
Like you said, Red Bull was definitely the surprise. Considering they are about 1~2 tests behind, maybe they will catch up quicker than anticipated? What do you guys think of this pecking order so far (in terms of the car potential):1. Mercedes2. Red Bull3. Williams, Mclaren4. Ferrari, Force India, STR5. Sauber, Lotus6. Caterham, MarussiaI don't think Button is slowing down. He was never super quick in qualifying and usually about a .5sec slower than Hamilton. They...
The 2nd one looks nice and fresh and good deal at 1,700Yen. The top one looks so-so. Maybe it was good, but not served very fresh?
+ 1 on the sound. When a lot of cars were out, they did sound a bit better than I thought, but still a bit "lawnmower like." I think Brundle summed it up best when he said something like, "the cars sound OK and I like the sounds, but we just need more of it."Kimi vs Alonso: I always thought and still think Alonso is about .250~.5 faster than Kimi. It probably doesn't help that the cars are still new and we can't assume that both cars in equal condition. There are so many...
