@crackers it’s so much different in formula racing anyway. But the world of racing should just follow BTCC’s policy IMO. Let the drivers race.
In the round-up: Fernando Alonso says of all his team mates – which includes Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa – the quickest over a single lap was Jarno Trulli.
Your daily digest of F1 news, views, features and more.
Alonso: “Trulli’s qualifying ability was the best I’ve ever come across among all my team mates.”
“After investing as much as $36 million in Mallya’s personal sorghum beer company in South Africa and bringing on board Smirnoff (the vodka brand of Diageo) as one of the sponsors of Mallya’s Sahara Force India racing team, Diageo has extended its corporate guarantee by another six months on the $135-million loan Mallya has taken for one of his personal companies, Watson Ltd. The latter is also one of the vehicles used by Mallya for his Formula1 (F1) team.”
Mika felt his hands reacted faster than his feet, so we developed a hand throttle to test the theory. #SundaySpotlight

But as several people agreed, @Crackers really nailed it with the first suggestion:
“Let Ricciardo win another one and I’ll break the other arm.”

Happy birthday to Adam Smith, Hsvlvr and Pink Peril!
On this day in F1
Carlos Reutemann’s Brabham led from lights to flag in the Austrian Grand Prix 40 years ago today. He was joined on the podium by Denny Hulme and James Hunt.
Here’s footage from the race:

I quite like the sound of Kobayashi driving a McLaren-Honda.
Given that at Sauber Kobayashi was beaten by Perez, who McLaren fired last year, I think it’s a safe bet that won’t happen, unless Honda […]
I rather think it explains why the general public didn’t have a clue what the team was going on about when they pointed at Brazil 2012 @crackers.
I would be seriously amazed if Webber did not have a clue what […]
@crackers I sense from that radio call he was a proper hypocrite as his engineer had to tell him “let Sebastian go please” I mean his team mate was in a title fight he had nothing to gain a proper straight bloke […]
History is on Felipe’s side for finding another seat. There hasn’t been a full season Ferrari driver who has finished their F1 career since 1982 when both Didier Pironi and Gilles Villeneuve failed to […]
@crackers truth, as the article also points out. Maybe he didn´t count Minardi, or counted his two times in Renault as one.
I think that the guy in sky was talking about how Hulk chance so often of team.
