Who the hell is this red neck? “Gene Haas”

If you think you can make idiotic statements on national TV, you have something else coming to you.

“We are the most advance country in the world?”   Don’t be ridiculous!

I can tell you this “Mr. Haas”

“Stupidity is no curable, but ignorance is, because for some of us , is still time to learn, but for others is already to late.” by PD

You are stupid not  ignorant, if you think you are the best of the best, then build your own car and your own engine, don’t go and make your statement and then use a Ferrari Engine. Which for what I know is from Europe!!!!     Unless you are not knowledgeable in geography, which seems to be the case.

1: Dallara has no experience in F1, so good luck with that. Because your cowboy racing as nothing to do with F1.

2:  We will be watching and laughing at every failure and excuse you have in F1. Better people then you have tried and failed.

3: If you want too “beat Europeans in their own game”, as you stated,  bring it on,  Bring your own engine and chassis, not one build by a  “European” that you want to beat at their own game.

A word of advice,  Stop making idiotic comments because that is the reason the world hate America.

Be a sport, bring your best game, but America is definitively not the best in the world, that is a fact!  So no need for your idiotic and bigget comments

If not stay in your cowboy racing where you belong and you will be the “best in America”, as nobody else is interested in this type of racing.

My last words to you are,  Kiss our ass, and kiss our rear ends, till then good luck with that!

Well yes, Mercedes Benz again, always a reason why they can’t win, if somebody comes with something better, they take the easy way out, judge by your self’s.  Below  are the comments from Mercedes Benz, are they for real?

Mercedes have revealed that they could have pulled out of F1, had it not been for the new engine regulations.

Professor Dr Thomas Weber told BBC sport “The key challenge for the future is fuel economy and efficiency and with the change in regulations F1 is the spearhead for development.”

“We had at different times the challenge to discuss F1 with the (Daimler) supervisory board. We had hard discussions. And it was always – and even more so when it came to the later years – harder to explain why we were using naturally aspirated engines.”

“Now with these new regulations I can clearly convince the supervisory board that the (F1 team) are doing exactly what we need – downsizing, direct injection, lightweight construction, fuel efficiency on the highest possible level, new technologies and combining a combustion engine with an e-motor hybrid.”

News by http://www.f1.co.uk/read-news/2014/10000/f1-2014-%e2%80%93-mercedes-could-of-left-f1

And what about BMW, they claim they are the driver’s car, but could never make anything work in an F1, so how can they claim they are the driver’s car, please do not make me laugh.  If you, yes you “BMW” make that statement, then show us in the top racing sport which is F1, but you failed and left with your tail between your legs. “Shame on you”

McLaren’s turn, need more excuses?  You lost for 4 years in a row, they have a chance to do something, but they worry about making statements, and yes trying to make things difficult for others, I taught this is the way out for the weak ones.

McLaren, Red Bull in legal dispute over aero expert

LONDON – McLaren consulted their lawyers on Wednesday after Formula One champions Red Bull announced the appointment of an aerodynamics expert their rivals said was contracted to them.

Red Bull said Dan Fallows has been appointed head of aerodynamics, replacing McLaren-bound Peter Prodromou who is now on ‘gardening leave’.

The statement drew a swift response from McLaren, who announced at their car launch in January that Fallows had joined along with Prodromou. “Dan Fallows has a legally binding contract with McLaren, and the matter is now in the hands of our lawyers,” said a spokesman for the Working team.

Red Bull said Fallows had left them last year after working as aerodynamics team leader but had returned and was starting his new job with immediate effect.

McLaren announced last October that Prodromou would be joining them but Red Bull, constructors’ champions for the past four years, were determined to hold the much sought-after Briton to his contract.

They did not say when his leave would formally end.

Prodromou was McLaren’s head of aerodynamics until 2006, having joined that team in 1991, when he followed Adrian Newey to Red Bull.

McLaren have changed their leadership since Fallows agreed to join, with Ron Dennis retaking overall control and Eric Boullier appointed racing director in place of departed Principal Martin Whitmarsh.

The team started the season with a second and third place in Australia for Danish rookie Kevin Magnussen and Jenson Button, pending an appeal by Red Bull who had Australian Daniel Ricciardo disqualified.

Red Bull have won the last four constructors’ and drivers’ championships, with Sebastian Vettel triumphant in the last nine races of 2013, but have started the season chasing dominant Mercedes.

McLaren failed to finish on the podium last year.

I been following F1 for longer then the majority of the F1 paddock today, not only that I have been to many tracks worldwide since I was 8, I saw the great drivers drive all over the world.

Jean-Pierre Beltoise, Johnny servoz-Gavin,  Jack Brahbam, Pedro Rodriguez,  James Hunt, Jackie Ickx, Jochen Rindt, Francois Cevert, Henry Pescarolo, Chris Amon, Peter Revson, Piers courage,  and many others, does where F1 Drivers,  they knew the risk, they raced for the passion of it.  In my opinion, the greatest driver of this generation are Ayton Senna, Michael schumacher and Sebastian Vettel, all others come after.

This is my humble opinion.

Almost all Drivers today, if they do not win they always have a reason, but it’s never them.  Particularly,  Nico Rosberg, Luis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso. Why don’t you stop talking about Vettel, and worry about you and your machinery, would it be that you are not good enough?  Could it be that they cannot set up the car properly? It makes you look ignorant.

Right now Mercedes Benz has the most powerful engine on F1, take advantage and see if you can win the championship.  Renault is not born yesterday, they know how to build engines and they have a huge record doing so.

I love F1, Let the war begin.

I leave  you with this.

AMG is the high performance department of Mercedes Benz, they create awesome automobiles.


In 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began fine-tuning engines for Mercedes-Benz racecars in an old mill. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG creates some of the most sought-after vehicles in the world. They’re the product of skilled craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test the limits, and one shared conviction: on the road to driving performance, short cuts never win the race.


A fine moment


From the beginning, the “One Man, One Engine” philosophy has guided AMG’s approach to manufacturing. Even now, every AMG engine is hand built from start to finish by one of about 50 AMG Master Engine Builders in a special facility.

As the final step in the assembly process, the engine-maker affixes a plaque engraved with his signature to the engine cover. It’s an enduring reminder that even the heart of a Mercedes-AMG has a soul.

The renowned AMG 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine employs race-proven technology, including self-adjusting bucket tappets and plasma-sprayed cylinder bores.


This is art in motion

Equipped with high-speed engine management and liquid-to-air intercooling technology, the mighty AMG 6.0-liter biturbo V-12 engine responds instantly in all RPM ranges.


I love this cars, but I do have an issue with them,  for a real drivers they are no fun to drive at all at speed, they have to many electronics that stop any good driver to enjoy the car, you cannot put this beautiful machines side ways or mistreat it somewhat a little, the electronics come in and stop you from having all the fun.

 I love to have one with out any of the electronics that limits us to really drive this cars, I do understand that they make their car safe for 90% of the drivers with are average drivers, but for somebody like me that is a race car driver when young and now vintage car racers its limiting the fun.

Also some of this spectacular automobiles are not very well balanced if you have the traction control off and really drive the car, the SLR is nose heavy and the rear gets loose very quickly, but at the end is more fun to drive this monster without it,  if you own one and you are not a good driver, and I mean a good driver, do not drive this beast crazy fast without the traction control, because it does become a hands full to drive if you are not an excellent driver and even if you are one.  Man, it was awesome to drive, Next?  I wan to drive the Mercs CLA 4.5,  what a pretty car and probably a great toy to own, 355HP, 2.0 turbo engine, Yes I want one. It is the perfect size car for today driving and what a performance, so why do I want one, because it is simple awesome.



The most powerful engine of its kind on earth, the AMG 2.0-liter turbo inline 4 employs twin-scroll turbocharging to deliver higher performance with lower consumption


And I leave you with this

The 2014 Australian grand Prix is done and past.

Surprises, not many, but to all that discarded Red bull, I guess you did not count on them to bounce back, big mistake from all of you that did.

Ricciardo Rocked By Decision – But Ricciardo Rocks!

For two years Daniel Ricciardo took the feel-good factor at Albert Park to new levels as a Toro Rosso driver. In 2014 the 24-year-old cool dude from Western Australia lifted the roof right off the place when he finished second in his first appearance for Toro Rosso’s grown-up sister team, Red Bull Racing.   Fans at the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix and the huge global audience following events on television enjoyed the happiest F1 podium they had seen in years as Ricciardo joined…
AUS3  Aus2
Rosberg Wins, Ricciardo Robbed By Technicality
Australian’s first podium finish taken away after car declared illegal Nico Rosberg won, two world champions retired early and Melbourne celebrated the arrival of a home-grown hero on Sunday when Daniel Ricciardo finished second in a memorable 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park. And then it all went wrong…Hours after the finish race stewards determined that the Australian’s Red Bull Renault had contravened the stringent new fuel regulations that apply to Formula 1’s brave new world in 2014.Technical experts concluded that Ricciardo’s car had exceeded the fuel flow limits and that he should be excluded from the final results.“Whatever the outcome I’m pleased with what I did today,” said Ricciardo as he left the circuit before the final result was declared. “It’s out of my control: I did the race and did my best.”Danish rookie Kevin Magnussen was promoted to second on his F1 debut for McLaren Mercedes while teammate Jenson Button joined him in the top three.If it takes something special to steal the headlines from the opening weekend of the AFL season, this was it: a race of drama, suspense and thrills with an uplifting conclusion for both the 100,500 spectators and a worldwide television audience measured in hundreds of millions. Despite the disappointing outcome, this was a resounding confirmation of Perth racer Ricciardo at the forefront of Australian sport.Rosberg, the son of a flying Finn who races with a German license, may have been triumphant, romping clear to claim his fourth career victory for pre-race favourites Mercedes, but both Ricciardo, in his first outing with champions Red Bull, and Magnussen of McLaren were also winners until the stewards decided otherwise.Their performances loudly signaled the arrival of a new generation of drivers along with a new ‘high tech’ formula for the sport.Behind the fresh-faced trio of wide-smiling speedsters seasoned champions Button and Fernando Alonso moved up to finish third and fourth for McLaren and Ferrari respectively ahead of another relative newcomer Valtteri Bottas, finishing a remarkable sixth (corrected to fifth) for Williams having lost a rear wheel from his car earlier in the race.Williams therefore have already scored more points in 2014 than they did throughout 2013 while rookie Magnussen’s magnificent performance made him the first Dane on a Formula One podium.

It meant also that a revitalized McLaren, back under the pit-wall watch of company chairman Ron Dennis, could put behind them a 2013 season in which they had failed to finish in the top three for the first time since 1980.

“We’re pleased,” said Dennis who was watching from the McLaren garage, “but we’re not ecstatic. “We save ecstatic for wins.”

Rosberg, who had started third behind his pole-sitting team-mate Briton Lewis Hamilton, the 2008 world champion, and Ricciardo, was delighted with his team and his victory. He snatched the lead from the start and produced a flawless exhibition of controlled driving at the front in a largely processional race.

“It has been an amazing time (for me) in Melbourne,” he said. “The support has been fantastic, Daniel got more support than me, but that’s normal!

“It has been an amazing day. Everyone has worked so hard over the winter and to have such an amazing Silver Arrow is unbelievable. It is so fast, it is a real pleasure to drive. The reliability was good and it’s the perfect start to the season for me.”

In the outpourings of delight, it was easy to forget that Hamilton had been forced to retire, due to engine failure, after labouring through only two laps and was followed into the unclassified list just one lap later by defending four-time champion German Sebastian Vettel, his Red Bull suffering a similar power failure.

None of that worried the new boys who took over at the top.

“Just two or three weeks ago, I would not have bet we would be standing up here,” said Ricciardo. “But full credit to the team for an unbelievable turnaround and thanks to the Aussie fans. The support has been completely overwhelming.”

Magnussen, mature beyond his 21 years, said: “it’s hard to believe and it seems so surreal. The car was so much better than it has been and I had just exactly what we needed for the whole race. The preparation we have done has been fantastic. I have never had a Formula One race and you only get limited time testing so congratulations to the team for doing such a good job…. I only wish my father was here today.”

Magnussen’s father Jan drove one Grand Prix for McLaren in 1995 and in a career of 25 races twice competed at Albert Park – but on his son’s great day he was racing in his own right in the United States.

The celebrations did not end with Bottas’ battling drive into the top six (he lost his right rear wheel when he brushed a wall after only 10 laps and returned to the pits on three wheels).

German Nico Hulkenberg finished a fine sixth for Force India ahead of Kimi Raikkonen, the Finn failing to impress on his return with Ferrari, while Frenchman Jean-Eric Verge drove his Toro Rosso to an impressive eighth.

Just behind him was his team-mate Russian Daniil Kvyat who produced another rousing result by a rookie to finish ninth on debut. At just 19 years, 10 months and 18 days, this native of Ufa in Bashkortostan became the youngest points-scorer in Formula One history, taking the record from Vettel.

With the final point going to Force India’s Sergio Perez, only 14 of the 22 starters finished. Both Lotus cars retired, as expected, and Kamui Kobayashi wrecked not only his own return race with Caterham, but the prospects of a fine drive from Felipe Massa, when his Caterham suffered suspected brake failure.

Massa was set to enjoy his first outing with Williams when the Japanese driver crashed into him on the very first corner.

In a race that included only one Safety Car intervention, Jules Bianchi, after 49 of the 57 laps, and Marcus Ericsson, after 27, also dropped out of the running for Marussia and Caterham respectively.

Five of the top seven finishers were powered by Mercedes, yet it was a Mercedes engine that let Hamilton down. His team’s technical director Paddy Lowe said they were aware of a problem even before the race began. “The engine wasn’t running on all cylinders,” he said. “We knew that on the formation lap. Lewis didn’t know, but we thought we’d see how the pace was.”

A show that left Australian fans relishing an outburst of national pride best summed up by Ricciardo’s reaction on the podium.

“G’day,” he beamed. “Thanks,” he told his team. “It’s a blur, but it’s really cool,” he told the fans. Around six hours later his day took a completely different turn.

OH yes, and latest news about Bernie, He may retire? that is good news I believe, what do you think out there?
