      They might threaten it, but I doubt the FIA would keep the rule and see only half of the field race. The FIA don’t even seem to be very proud of it themselves. If it’s not welcome, I can expect to see the FIA dropping the rule almost immediately.

      I think there should have been a question about who will come up with the best/most copied innovation.

    1. The Horse Whisperer is the official Ferrari blog.

      Last year they ranted and moaned a lot about Valencia penalties and criticism from Niki Lauda.

    2. It’a the site where the main goal is to flame, criticize and basically bitch about everything but Ferrari. On a “normal” fan site (like here) we discuss details of various aspects of the sport and since we have a lot of McLaren fans we talk about the current issues and how things might pan out. On the Horse Whisperer right now the main topic seems to be how bad everyone HOPES that it will go for McLaren. It’s not about how to get a pace-edge over Red Bull or if Alonso’s experience can outsmart Vettel as apparently the only real importance is that McLaren fails!

      1. On the other hand, for some people the only purpose of this site seems to be bitching about everything related to Ferrari …..

    1. How will Liuzzi crash out of the most races if, according to Q.2., he doesn’t compete in them…?

      Not to be picky… ;)

      1. Maybe he wil crash out in the first 6 races and therefore be sacked .. and then noone else matches that number ……

        1. Oops, didn’t read his answer to q2 :-P .. yes, in that case he can’t crash, I thought he woud be the first to be sacked .. sorry

    1. As much as I’d love to see Fisichella given another shot in the Ferrari, I can’t see them replacing Massa with him mid-season. Can you explain why you think they will?

      If Massa is replaced, surely it will be by someone with more recent experience.

      1. Why do you want to see Fisichella in the Ferrari again?

        He was worse than Badoer in 2009 in my opinion if you consider all the circumstances.

        1. I agree that he was worse than Badoer – but I think the 2009 Ferrari did not flatter either of them. Fisichella was one of my favourite drivers in the Benetton and Jordan days and I would love to see him doing a few more races.

    2. If for some mysterious reason Ferrari had to replace Massa it would be only with Hamilton (in case McLaren isn’t fast enough for Lewis). Don’t forget they paid $$ million to Kimi just to sit out in 2010.

      1. I can’t see Hamilton going to Ferrari, and certainly not mid-season, even if the McLaren is a tractor.

        1. I’m suprised none of the comments under this posts picked up on Vettle failing a drug test thingy.
          Now that would be a suprise, an not really a pleasant one, though we’d loose a very boring talent.

          1. Haha, I completely missed that! I wouldn’t call Vettel boring – on the contrary, his interesting take on overtaking made many talking points last year!

          2. He drives a fast car quickly. He occasionaly crashes when he attempts anything unusual. The only time Vettle has actually excited me was his first race win. Since then every race win he’s got has been exactly the same.

Vettel last year got 256 points, and that was an unpredictable season where Vettel himself only led the championship on the last day of the season.

      1. Yeah, ballsed up there, meant to say 287.

        Cheers

    1. This article should be reviewed to see how well everyone did :-)

      1. 1) Correct (delayed to 2014), but not sure if it was the best story.
        2) Monaco in particular, but again unsure of it being the worst within F1 (the deaths in other categories probably overshadowed this).
        3) Karthikeyan, I was close.
        4) Ricciardo, so yes because he’s from the Red Bull development program.
        5) Very debatable. Maybe the Massa-Hamilton crash fest!
        6) I was definitely wrong :-) they got six, three for both drivers
        7) Not sure about pay rise, but I was otherwise wrong.
        8) Again debatable.
        9) 4th, should’ve been 2nd if it wasn’t for DRS in Canada.
        10) and 11) I Don’t know
        12) Correct
        13) Canada. Brazil was good but nowhere near as insane and unpredictable.
        14) Obviously (15)
        15) Vettel as well! Should’ve been Alonso if it wasn’t for the Practice Crash.
        16) HRT didn’t qualify. Who was the first retirement?
        17) Japan. I got that wrong, even WCC gone by Korea!
        18) 392, I was definitely wrong but at least I knew it would be more than 2010.
        19) and 20) Easily correct.
