@formula-1 – I suppose :P haha, wish I had a car like Mercedes’…
By the way, I should imagine two more versions of that post will come through, it didn’t post first time again…

I’ve made another ‘corrected grid’ for Germany.. and realised I need to include a handicap for Force India and McLaren as well:
Force India, McLaren -0.25, Ferrari -0.75, Renault -0.90
Pos Driver Car
5 Daniel Ricciardo Red Bull 1’16.373
16 Lewis Hamilton Mercedes 1’16.433 (-2.25 sec) +0.060 (or -0.040?)

Opening up the rules to those with money to develop faster/more efficiently might make the season even more predictable, though.

1. Daniel Ricciardo
Exceeded expectations and very consistent. Beating four time world champion teammate. Only driver so far to win a race bar the Mercedes. Easy choice.
2. Fernando Alonso

3. Nico Rosberg
Championship leader while matching, if not…[Read more]

Ricciardo has shown so far that he is very much capable of stepping up to being Red Bull’s No.1 driver. At present, Kvyat seems likely to partner him if and when Vettel leaves.
Hamilton – Bottas
As mentioned, this one is clear with the Wolff and Mercedes connection coinciding with his impressive speed. He is an absolute shoe-in…[Read more]
