I like this video of Simon Pagenaud's visor cam. I would like to see something similar from F1 car :)

You are right, but it was probably few times. Anyway I would like to see it more often :)

Thought LongBeach was pretty good.
Some good racing...some bad racing and some real stupid moves, but overall a good and interesting race.

Wonder if there is any point to modifying the sidepod without being allowed to alter the internal ducting and radiator.

Would be nice to see an aero kit with the sidepod separated from the rear wheel pontoon

Is it just me that is massively disappointed that Will Power has won the title considering his driving standards this year?

There were multiple incidents in the opening races that went unpunished, and his barging people off track continued throughout the season - the guy has no class, and had it been Dario doing that to him he would have been having tantrums.

You certainly sound like a hater. If anyone in this world deserves this championship, its Will Power.


Congratulations Will, after three terrible heartrbraeking title losses, you got it!!!

As an aside, every incident Will has gotten into has been accidental, so its kinda strange to call it "barging people off track"

Not bad

Just add a central section to the front wing

and a opening before the rear wheel to feed the top of the diffuser which would result in a neat under cut side pod.

they can also try cannon exhausts from the twin turbos

Hi guys, i've just registered at this website. I was searching some opinions between the Dallara IS03 and the actual DW12, and i found your discussion.
I learnt many things thank to you.
Before of all, sorry for my English, i'm italian, so i try to do my best. :D
Personally i loved and i still prefer the 2003-2011 cars, first of all for the estetic. Actual cars are fat and don't seem open wheel cars.
Then, races aren't much exciting now. Since 2013 they were, also with the new cars, but now there isn't much action, especially on street circuits (which now are too many, and me i even prefer them... But i would like an equilibre) and there aren't cautions too.
But i have to admit that now cars are safer, the rollabar is better. So, if this already makes them safer, why did they add all those estetic protections?
This is my opinion guys. I tank you another time because i learnt many things, such as that since 2007 there were Indycar and Champ car, while i always thought there was only Indy. I noticed only now that those cars have been used in Superleague formula then, and the first thing that i think when i see them is: "crash and debris" xD I didn't know they were so unsafe too.
