F1 Fanatic - Formula 3.5 V8
Was looking this up for an article I’m writing at the moment and thought I’d share it:
Poor Ricciardo – he ended the championship just two points behind Mikhail Aleshin after that…
That was a pretty aggressive move!
Ricciardo was hard done by in that case, but I suppose that’s racing.
To be fair he had 3 more races to win it ;)
Gotta say, it shows how dangerous it can be to swerve across the track at the start (something Vettel is infamous for).
Though I wouldn’t have thought the crash would have gone like that!
That was plain bizarre. No other description fits.
Yeah, I was gonna say, it certainly sucks, but I’m sure he had other opportunities throughout the year to finish better and have those 2 points more. You can blame one crash for the championship or you can see where you could have improved on mistakes you can control.
@Victor I don’t follow WSR much; so what exactly do you mean by that? Did Aleshin not start 3 races or something?
Quickest man that year was Esteban Guerrieri, who missed a fair few races due to lack of budget and had Tech 1 absolutely screw him over yet still went to the last race in with a shot at the title. The fact he never got a sniff at F1 is a huge shame.
