Very impressive stuff from Vettel
Although I didn’t like how the 458 looked when it first came out, I’ve grown to it and now i think it looks pretty good
Sure there are more beautiful supercars, but in comparison to the mp4-12c (which, as someone already said, looks like an overpriced lotus or something built by a car enthusiast rather than a company that makes supercars), the ferrari wins hands down
I prefer the technology of the mp4, but…. really it looks too bland and boring13th June 2011, 8:20 at 8:20 am #17101214th May 2011, 18:20 at 6:20 pm #168444
Do we know of any other Petrovs?9th May 2011, 9:27 at 9:27 am #168384
I’d see it as the top 3 plus top 2 midfield teams
Both Mercedes and Renault show potential, but they are not quite in the same league with the top 3
It’s just that their difference to Sauber, FI, Toro Rosso and Williams is too big.2nd May 2011, 20:05 at 8:05 pm #168074
Wow that looks fascinating!23rd April 2011, 7:42 at 7:42 am #159769
2009, when I was returning to school after the holidays, I happened to see Button winning in Australia
Now I come to think of it, I don’t know why it was then that I got hooked, and not earlier.19th April 2011, 12:23 at 12:23 pm #167324
It’s good that there are a lot of overtakes, but I hope there isn’t a lot of the kind of type where the driver in front cannot defend because his tyres are shot16th April 2011, 11:18 at 11:18 am #166969
Someone suggested that his shirts were confiscated at customs. Apparently, China isn’t ready for them14th April 2011, 10:36 at 10:36 am #166928
It would be cool if Ferrari lubricate their engines with Bovril13th April 2011, 9:45 at 9:45 am #158366
As Damon said, you can tell if a photo has been zoomed. This is because the perspective gets narrower as you zoom further.
Here’s an example to show the change in perspective
The higher the focal length (the number on top of the photo), the more ‘zoom’ you have
Whether the photo you refer to has been zoomed or not, on the other hand, I’m not sure.12th April 2011, 20:35 at 8:35 pm #166800
What I mean to say is that simply doing better than your team mate doesn’t make a huge impression unless you absolutely humiliate him. What distinguishes an exceptional driver from a good driver is that the exceptional driver can drive beyond the capability of that car.
Vettel’s win with Toro Rosso, Hulkenbberg’s pole position, Kubica’s podium in Monaco, and Kobayashi from time to time last year are some of the examples I had in mind. I’m not sure Heidfeld had such attention grabbing moments.12th April 2011, 14:08 at 2:08 pm #166356
Erm.. I dunno
Doesn’t look too genuine, but then again, I don’t know how Heidfeld and Kubica get along outside the track.12th April 2011, 14:04 at 2:04 pm #166796
Because he has compared quite favourably against various illustrious teammates who are considered quick.
I see that point raised quite often, but I think a driver should be fast, full stop. He shouldn’t need to rely on how well he did against a teammate. That, I think, is the reason I don’t rate Heidfeld as one of the top drivers.11th April 2011, 18:15 at 6:15 pm #166600
Rudderless Russian was epic for me, though I didn’t quite catch when he said it at first.
Oh, and looking at that website, this one too:
“There are four compounds [of tyre] through the year: hard, medium, soft and supersoft; that’s silver, white, yellow and red – not a very sensible progression. I think you’ve gotta think of it as knife, toast, butter and jam as they get softer through the progression of the rubber.”
Now there’s a sensible way of remembering all the tyre compounds!10th April 2011, 14:53 at 2:53 pm #166466
Second consecutive top 10 finish in a Sauber, looking good so far this season.
I loved his move on Schumacher today, the way he stabbed him on the back just when Michael thought that he successfully defended his position.
