I actually think Magnussen will beat Button in terms of total points. Kevin has been highly impressive in last couple years in junior categories, along with a washed up Jenson Button, who had his last hoorah in 2011 if we are honest. Kevin is going to pull a Hamilton!13th January 2014, 17:50 at 5:50 pm #247402
@geemac You most certainly are. Helio Castroneves is the most #3 associated driver in open-wheel racing. Not only does he race #3, he has won 3 Indy 500s10th January 2014, 20:34 at 8:34 pm #247394
I think I have a hunch about why Ricciardo chose #3:

I actually like Turn 1 @ Shanghai, in my opinion it is one of the better first corners on the calendar.
I think sector three at Valencia (might be on 2014 calendar) is the worst sector in F1.
For this season though, the worst bit of track is probably the second chicane at Monza, along with the final chicane at Barcelona (already mentioned).29th July 2013, 0:38 at 12:38 am #239518
Grosjean on Massa, despite it being ‘illegal’.27th May 2013, 0:52 at 12:52 am #237140
Raikkonen on Gutierrez at Sante Devote. Either the final or penultimate lap.5th May 2013, 22:31 at 10:31 pm #236240
Dario better believe they will discuss blocking, especially after his naughty chop on Sato last year.14th April 2013, 0:50 at 12:50 am #195478
F1 – Lewis Hamilton
GP2 – James Calado
GP3 – Carlos Sainz Jr.
FR3.5 – Stoffel Vandoorne (da Costa will be promoted to F1 mid-season)
Indycar – Will Power
MotoGP – Jorge Lorenzo
WRC – Sebastien Ogier21st March 2013, 0:26 at 12:26 am #229062
I have to go for da Costa, Bottas, and Raffaele Marciello.
For some reason I just cannot see the likes of Perez (will win races), Hulkenberg, Grosjean (will win a race or two), Maldonado (already won a race), Bianchi, Calado (even though I would like to see it happen), Jazeman Jaafar (talent + Malaysian $$$), Jack Harvey, Robin Frijns (amazing talent), etc. winning a championship. Some of them will be good drivers and have some success in F1, but I think the three I listed previously have the most potential.28th January 2013, 2:02 at 2:02 am #224562
Valterri Bottas and Williams.
Williams had a strong car last year but between Senna’s lack of quality and Maldonado’s abundance of collisions, they underperformed. Bottas may just be able to make the car work.
The two Mexicans on the grid are both good underdogs as well.15th November 2012, 12:03 at 12:03 pm #215036
Its probably Maldonado, and based on where he comes from there might also be some heavier drugs involved! (have you seen his driving this season?)6th November 2012, 1:16 at 1:16 am #214379
Hopefully Gary Johnson will get over 5% of the national vote, making the Libertarian Party a major party for the 2016 election.7th October 2012, 0:09 at 12:09 am #211734
Trying to be a bit realistic, while still being a bit fantasy:
1. San Marino – Imola – A classic opener
2. Abu Dhabi – Yas Marina – Need a Middle-Eastern track, and this is the best one.
3. Malaysia – Sepang – Good circuit, deserves a spot.
4. Australia – Bathurst – May have to be upgraded, but it would make Albert Park look like a nascar oval.
5. China- Shanghai – Exciting races, and one billion people.
6. Greece – (New Track that is in works) – Great country, with history, and a good track (on paper) need some $$, though.
7. Monaco – Monte-Carlo – No comment needed.
8. Canada – Montreal – A simple, but punishing, exciting track.
9. America – New Jersey – Looks like a good circuit
10. Great Britain – Silverstone – Must have.
11. Germany – Nurburgring – It’s just better than the Hockenheimring, it’s the traditional home of German motorsport.
12. Belgium – Spa-Franchorchamps – Best GP in the world
13. Italy – Monza – Home of Ferrari
14. Singapore – Reconfigured Marina Bay – A great spectacle.
15. Japan – Suzuka – Second best circuit in the world
16. India – New Delhi – One billion people, and a good circuit.
17. Mexico – Mexico City (AHR) – Dangerous, with passionate fans of Checo.
18. United States – Austin – A proper US circuit, that is needed to capture the interest of the US.
19. Brazil – Interlagos – Classic F1 venue
20. Hong Kong – (New Street Circuit) – Exciting venue for finale, with narrow, winding streets, and plenty of elevation changes.30th September 2012, 0:59 at 12:59 am #207239
