“Should Ricciardo receive equal treatment with Vettel?”
This was the original post, yet it has lowered back to Mark V Seb again……………………….. I am bored with it and despite my instinct to react to some anti-Aussie posts I prefer to move forward…………. and we all should!
Daniel Ricciardo is a real F1 talent- full stop!! This is not to say guys like Nico Hulkenburg, Paul Di Resta, Pastor Malonardo, Sergio Perez, Jean-Eric Vergne, Jules Bianncia (et alt) are not!
What I am saying is that Dan GOT the drive and we now need to see if he is the deal- too many people are so negative on this!!! Same with Sergio last year- a bit different as we didnt expect the great McLaren to slip back as much.
The same “treatment” and same “machinery” is not the same. Dan WILL get the same car as Seb (excluding a few “tweaks” but NOT the same treatment!!) Not any surprise here really hey??
Massa has the same car as Fernando over the past 4 years, but has he got the same “treatment”??
NO- but if he had maybe poor Phillipe had he would be more confident now- I have seen Massa go from a dominent F1 champion (not WDC) to a “yes man” and that is not good for anyone…………….. but Alonso!
