That was fantastic! Felt like old commentary from the 1940’s.
I do hope Sauber has another breakthrough year. They were honestly unlucky not to win a race last year. Perez needed but half a lap more at Monza and Kobayashi could have pulled a big upset at Spa were it not for the big crash. Hulkenberg showed great poise (for the most part) while leading in Brazil. 2013 really could be their year.2nd February 2013, 2:22 at 2:22 am #224810
It’s a rather open ended question, but I’ll have a go at it! :)
I was just talking about this with a friend the other day. My ideal season would be one in which RedBull, Ferrari, McLaren, Lotus and Mercedes all start the season with nearly equal lap times. No team having the upper hand for more than a race or two, little reliability issues, and a closer fight for the championships than last season.10th January 2013, 4:50 at 4:50 am #217802
That’s a great list this year! I love that Massa hosts this every year. Still it would be nice to see Barrichello, Kanaan, Castroneves, etc. joining in on the fun this year.1st December 2012, 5:37 at 5:37 am #216704
1. Vettel, he blitzed the field in the second half of the season, scoring
171 points over the final 10 races, Alonso had more than anyone
else over the same period, but only managed 124.
2. Hamilton, let down by his equipment, let down by his team, and
occasionally let down by himself. Had the most podiums and
could have had the most wins were it not for McLaren’s woeful
3. Raikkonen, Incredibly consistent, incredibly quick. Had he been
driving for the big 3, he would have challenged for a WDC. Still,
3rd in the standings was excellent.
4. Alonso, I am going against the grain by putting Alonso in 4th. Did
he drive brilliantly? Of course. Caught lucky breaks like he was
wrapped in flypaper. But were it not for the misfortune of others
and Ferrari shoving Massa out of his way the second half of the
season it wouldn’t have been as close as it really was.
5. Button, Put in some excellent drives, let down by his team, but
not to the extent Hamilton was. Book ended the season with a pair
of wins and actually outscored everyone but Vettel and Alonso
over the season’s final races.
6. Perez, on the weekend’s when Sauber was on the money, he
showed it. 3 excellent podiums earned him his big shot.
7. Hulkenberg, Took Force India to highs they have rarely
experienced. Q3, consistent points finishes and leading laps in
Brazil. A top ride beckons.
8. Weber, started the year strongly, with 2 fine victories, but then
fizzled out over the final races, his poor starts and reliability woes
getting the best of him.
9. Massa, proved that it’s not how you start, but how you finished.
Scored more points than both Weber and Hamilton over the
second half of the season with a run of 10 consecutive races in
the points, more than quadrupling his points haul from the first 10
10. Maldonado, one of the surprises of the year, despite the crashes
and penalties, his Qualifying pace and win in Spain have brought
Williams back from the brink. Time will tell if he can be molded
into a future star or become another unrealized talent the likes of
the last feisty South American phenom: Montoya.
14. Di resta

Can’t argue with everyone,
Massa on Senna for sure.12th October 2012, 6:07 at 6:07 am #211415
Is the Macau race live streamed online anywhere? I’d love to watch it if possible. It’s a great event that doesn’t get enough exposure or coverage, at least here in the U.S.
Even Macau itself doesn’t get enough exposure, few people know that it was both the first, and last European colony in Asia. A fascinating place.30th September 2012, 5:03 at 5:03 am #207240
Larry, Curly and Moe.
No, but seriously, I’d go for Murray Walker, David Hobbes and Dario Franchitti.29th September 2012, 5:11 at 5:11 am #211501
I’d love the classic McLaren orange livery to return, but this metallic take of it presented on the cars at Paris is a bit too loud.22nd September 2012, 0:26 at 12:26 am #210848
That’s awesome. People knock Vettel for his antics, all the helmet designs, the dreaded finger, but at least he feels comfortable enough to show off his personality. It adds a bit of character and light hearted fun to the series. Plus LEDs are just cool. They are already set to be the future of every conceivable type of lighting, but for someone to stick em on a helmet is definitely inspired.22nd September 2012, 0:21 at 12:21 am #209625
I so hope this happens, it will be one of the highlights of the 2013 racing year. With Ganassi set to have one of the few unchanging line ups for next season, adding an extra car for Zanardi at Indianapolis should be relatively easy.
Now if only Montoya would give up the ghost in Nascar and return back to Indy.22nd September 2012, 0:19 at 12:19 am #210163
Such an incredible race, I got busy with work so I had the race just sitting on my DVR for days! Finally watched it and all I can say is wow. I’m thrilled for Hunter-Reay and Andretti Autosport, but I am simultaneously gutted for Will Power. I hope he gets a break soon, he has more than earned it.
If Rubens coming across the pond brought over new Indycar fans from F1, great races like this should only add more!22nd September 2012, 0:16 at 12:16 am #210599
Just tried the demo for the first time last night, did a couple 5 lap races at Monza and it was awesome!!!
Really looking forward to the full game.12th September 2012, 20:36 at 8:36 pm #209597
Yeah I’m fairly certain it would ruin the handling of such a small car as mine, but it’s a fun thought!12th September 2012, 6:15 at 6:15 am #209592
Thanks man! I haven’t been following Scarbs as close as usual this season, so I missed seeing that.
I am surprised that can even get to ebay, that is just incredible!! And good for Scarbs getting an F-Duct :)
I’d love to see what an airbox and some pirellis would look like on my MX-5 ;)11th September 2012, 22:36 at 10:36 pm #209017
