Jordan and Super Aguri for me. Sad to see both go when they did. At least we have Aguri in Formula E this year!2nd September 2014, 12:04 at 12:04 pm #273139
August 30th – Verizon IndyCar Series – Will Power – Round 15 of 15 – Race 18 of 18
Also of note in this series: Carlos Munoz won Rookie of the Year at the same race, Chevrolet the manufacturers cup. Juan Pablo Montoya was awarded the ‘Most Popular Driver’ award the day after.29th August 2014, 21:56 at 9:56 pm #272637
Who would I like to see? Well if you’re ignoring all current contracts then this could get interesting.
This won’t happen but this is what I would like to happen, respecting the fact that some drivers are already confirmed:
Mercedes: L. Hamilton/N. Rosberg
Red Bull: D. Ricciardo/R. Grosjean
Williams: F. Massa/K. Raikkonen
Ferrari: F. Alonso/J. Bianchi
McLaren: S. Vettel/V. Bottas
Force India: N. Hulkenberg/K. Magnussen
Toro Rosso: D. Kvyat/M. Verstappen
Lotus: P. Maldonado/J. Palmer
Marussia: S. Vandoorne/A. Rossi
Sauber: S. De Silvestro/S. Sirotkin
Caterham: C. Sainz Jr./R. Frijns
EDIT: If I had my way I would have had J.E. Vergne instead of P. Maldonado and A. Lynn instead of M. Verstappen.29th August 2014, 21:46 at 9:46 pm #272634
My top five:
5) Lotus 25 – Do I need to say much about this? Superb piece of machinery.
4) Sauber C12 – Plain. Simple. Beautiful.
3) Brawn 001 – Similar to above. Like the odd colour scheme. Makes that era of car look nice.
2) McLaren MP4/13 – The car that I recognise the most from my childhood, my hero Mika Hakkinen took it to the World Championship.
1) McLaren MP4-20 – Ridiculously fast, the last of the V10s, driven by my modern-day hero Kimi Raikkonen, forever my favourite car.29th August 2014, 14:43 at 2:43 pm #272609
I’m looking forward to getting up at 2:30am for this! It should be excellent!29th August 2014, 14:42 at 2:42 pm #272608
13 corners. That’s a nice sensible amount. It looks good to me especially the 5-6-7 complex!27th August 2014, 16:48 at 4:48 pm #272444
The reason why Hulkenberg wasn’t slammed was because it was his first stupid move for well over a year. Also, Hulkenberg held his hands up and said that it was his fault. You find that holding your hands up and admitting to making a mistake as we have seen from Hulkenberg, Grosjean and Magnussen in recent races will make you far more popular amongst the neutrals than somebody who believes that they can do no wrong, as we have seen from Massa, Chilton, Maldonado, Perez and Alonso to name a few. That isn’t to say that these drivers cannot overtake, because I would be incredibly wrong, but when they do seem to make contact with other cars or gain needless penalties they just shrug it off and claim it isn’t their fault for some absurd reason. That’s one reason why I’ve really enjoyed watching Valtteri Bottas this season. He has had some phenomenal drives but if he feels that he personally hasn’t performed despite being on the podium then he will say ‘yes I could well have done better’ as oppose to Alonso claiming that seventh was ‘the maximum that the car was able to achieve’.24th August 2014, 20:00 at 8:00 pm #271898

It’s incredibly tough to judge Newgarden given his lack of a team mate. I think he would be best staying at CFH for next season. If Carpenter/Conway share again, it certainly wouldn’t be a bad pairing, and Newgarden could learn a lot from them.18th August 2014, 9:25 at 9:25 am #270580
I can’t see any of the following teams changing their drivers: Mercedes, Red Bull, Ferrari, Williams, McLaren, Force India.
It’s Sauber which is the interesting one really. It looks like any two of at least five drivers have a realistic shout at getting a seat there for 2015.18th August 2014, 9:23 at 9:23 am #270578
Ryan Hunter-Reay will stay with Andretti Autosport (with the DHL livery) until the end of 2017.3rd August 2014, 10:41 at 10:41 am #269406
While having all of the advertising being spot on would be nice, we have had in the past cars being altered due to the advertising regulations. In F1 97, which is a great game for its time, ‘Fosters’ was re-branded as ‘Faster’ and ‘Rothmans’ as ‘Racing’. This didn’t deter me from playing the game one bit.
Having the cars being identical to their real-life counterparts would be great, but I’m not going to lose any sleep over it if one car has to have a slightly different coloured stripe and a few others missing one sponsor.
And no, I’m not buying the game on launch.3rd August 2014, 10:33 at 10:33 am #269403
Hinch 17th and Sato 21st. They’re usually the two right at the front in qualifying but always drop back in the race so it would be typical that they both have awesome races from the very back! Can’t wait for this, the cars seemed so close on a dry track in practice, so this could be very interesting.2nd August 2014, 11:13 at 11:13 am #269379
