@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…
@aiera-music – No worries :), no I know, but it’s all good, because I know I’m going to win the next race. I’ve hired snipers, to take out everyone whose car isn’t Orange :)
*crazy evil grin*

1. Daniel Ricciardo – Has barely put a foot wrong and has beat his 4-times World Champion teammate.
2. Fernando Alonso – A typically Alonso-esque season, solid and reliable, always extracting the maximum.
3. Valtteri Bottas – Impressive and best of the rest recently but occasional mistakes mean not as good as top two.
4. Lewis Hamilton – Has been the quicker Mercedes driver more of the time, but mistakes have been too frequent.
5. Nico Rosberg – Has generally not been as quick as Hamilton, but has had his days.
6. Nico Hulkenberg – An Alonso-esque season. Solid in car that’s looked mighty poor at times despite the awesome engine.
7. Sebastian Vettel – Comprehensively beaten by Ricciardo and has looked more average than a 4-times World Champion should.
8. Sergio Perez – Has been closer to Hulk than a lot of people expected, but still not as good.
9. Jenson Button – A solid season in another car that isn’t good, despite a double opening race podium.
10. Jean-Eric Vergne – Has been impressive in an average car and hugely unlucky, should have many more points.
11. Kevin Magnussen – Close to Button but a few more mistakes, similar seasons but slightly more off the pace usually.
12. Daniil Kvyat – Good season for the rookie but Vergne’s done better, and would be even further ahead if not for mechanical failures, although Daniil’s had his own.
13. Romain Grosjean – Has done as best he can in a car that’s just shocking.
14. Felipe Massa – In a car that’s surely second best, Massa keeps messing up and blaming others. Sad to say but he looks past it.
15. Jules Bianchi – Has usually been best of the back-markers and to score points in a Marussia is beyond expectations.
16. Kamui Kobayashi – Not brilliant, but has had the beating of Ericsson too. In a car that’s clearly the worst on the field, has done ok.
17. Marcus Ericsson – Similar to Kobayashi, but not been as good.
18. Max Chilton – Has sometimes struggled to beat even the Caterhams but has on occasions beaten Bianchi too.
19. Pastor Maldonado – Miles behind Grosjean and has looked all at sea.
20. Kimi Raikkonen – Has been so far behind Alonso most of the time he’s starting to look more like an out of depth rookie than an ex-World Champion.
21. Adrian Sutil – The car is poor, but it’s being let down even more so by the drivers.
22. Esteban Gutierrez – Same as Sutil, but not as good.21st July 2014, 10:51 at 10:51 am #267530
@RoboCAT – Not that it hugely matters, but isn’t the Spanish Grand Prix 66 laps?21st July 2014, 10:18 at 10:18 am #267524

@andae23 – He scored a point in last years Downton, he has to have some skill. :P
I’ve updated the Finances page. Three of the drivers in the top ten in the Championship are yet to be signed for next season: http://f1fvgpc.weebly.com/finances.html20th July 2014, 18:14 at 6:14 pm #267431
The Wiki is now completely up to date and I shall do the finances page (I know, it’s been a while) in a bit.
@andae23 – Or you could always run van Slooten? :P20th July 2014, 16:25 at 4:25 pm #267361
@pezlo2013 – He’d be fifth if Karl hadn’t taken Powers out of contention, think yourself lucky you got 12 points. I’d sure appreciate them…20th July 2014, 12:16 at 12:16 pm #267275
@mathers – No I disagree, look at the incident. Beckenbauer is far enough out to the left of Hoskins to just be able to drive past, which is what Powers would have expected, hence why he followed him exactly. But before he actually went past Hoskins he suddenly stopped, catching Powers out. Yes, I’ll happily admit I am bitter, but I still think it’s stupid driving from Beckenbauer. And you can’t compare this incident to any others because it’s a completely different incident.20th July 2014, 11:54 at 11:54 am #267271
@mathers – Perhaps, but I feel Karl could have gone around Hoskins as there was easily enough room, but he didn’t, he just stopped suddenly and left Powers with nowhere to go.20th July 2014, 11:11 at 11:11 am #267262
Nothing against @mathers as I know the points are crucial for his Championship and I wouldn’t want to the be the cause if he loses it, but I feel Beckenbauer should get a time penalty to drop him behind Powers for costing Powers the best shot at a race win. Fancy slowing so suddenly in the middle of the track for no reason when he could have easily gone around Hoskins?! Crazy…
And Lindsey should definitely get a race ban. Carbon copy of what Beckenbauer did last year to get the same penalty.20th July 2014, 10:45 at 10:45 am #26725320th July 2014, 9:25 at 9:25 am #267232
Gutted is the only word to describe that.17th July 2014, 14:44 at 2:44 pm #266816
