Oh man, one bad news was not enough!
Rest in peace Andrea
I have just seen the video of Bianchi's accident and is very bad. I don't understand why the FOM doesn't want the public to see it
Here it is. It's indeed very scary. I don't know how he wasn't decapitated. BTW its not gory or anything, just intense.
After watching it again, wow... do you know how heavy one of those lifters are? He sent it into the air...
Here is a much better video
Wow, thanks for the video link. I was wondering how the accident happened, and it looks much worse than I thought.
What about Vettel to Ferrari though? Sure is going to be interesting to see where the others fit. Will Alonso end up at Mclaren, if so what about Button? Is there any chance for a surprise Vettel/Alonso combo at Ferrari?
No chance for Vet/Alo, he's worn out his welcome at Ferrari.
Alonso will definitely end up at McLaren, his contract is with Honda, so there is no other Manufacturer that will have their engines next year.
Is it really a good thing for him or it might be his only option?
McLaren Honda is an ueber-classic combo (Senna/Prost anyone?!). Could be a surprise revival. And LH and SV in talks as well? At least as per espn..
Hamilton still has a contract for 2015. He has been dominant in the best car. I see no reason for him and MB to part.
Dominant? Yes, dominant! With the exception of Monaco and Austria, LH has won every single race where he didn't have a failure in qualifying. The only MB driver who's lost a race to Ricciardo is Nico. Twice as many wins despite 50% more retirements. On the podium for every finish.
Mercedes is so dominant , it would be stupid for LH to leave them..
Next year is a whole different ball game. RB might come back, same for Ferrari, and McLaren-Honda ... am I the only one thinking that could be the dark horse out of nowhere?
While it's possible that Honda could have the most powerful power unit right out of the gate, it seems unlikely. The scuttlebutt also suggests they haven't met power targets yet. And even if Honda is able to deliver an exceptional power unit, McLaren still has to come up with a chassis to take advantage of it. The past few years suggest that this is far from a given.
Ferrari are in the same situation as McLaren-Honda, but with less scope to improve the power unit.
In season change regulations are going to severely limit any engine mgfr's ability to catch up with the merc. We might see 3 to 5 years of dominance. Honda was in F1 around 2009 or so, so they haven't been out that long. It won't be fast, this is a totally a new world.
