    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.

    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.

    Ryan Hunter-Reay will stay with Andretti Autosport (with the DHL livery) until the end of 2017.

    I’m with @magnificent-geoffrey on this one I’m afraid @funkyf1 .

    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.

    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.

    Without rules and regulations, Adrian Newey has already gone and designed something called the Red Bull X2014 Fan Car and just in case you were wondering just how quick it is, the answer is very!

    So they have to censor every single bit of alcohol advertising but not the penis noses?

    $60 for the whole weekend with a paddock pass for $20!? That’s not bad at all given the number of support races there. I’m looking forward to seeing how RHR bounces back after yet another poor weekend. I’m also looking to see whether Bourdais or Conway can continue to upset the frontrunners.

    Ricciardo for me. There was never any doubt over his qualifying speed, but there always remained a few question marks over his race pace. This year has hit the nail on the head for me, the boy can race.

    Depends, is Frijns ever going to get an F1 seat?

    Unfortunately, it looks unlikely. Which is a shame, because every race that I have watched him in, he has driven very well!

    My top 10:

    Ricciardo: A win, several podiums, some brilliant overtakes. Nuff said.
    Bottas: A shaky start to the season, but incredible drives in Spain, Austria, Britain and Germany.
    Hamilton: Awesome form in the first five races, somewhat dropped off since but still thereabouts.
    Rosberg: Ahead of Hamilton in qualifying, almost ahead in the races. Definitely giving him a good run.
    Alonso: Vintage Alonso again this season.
    Vettel: Somewhat outshone by Ricciardo in qualifying, but had some poor luck and poor strategies in races.
    Hulkenberg: Scored in every race, demolishing Perez in qualifying, not much else needs to be added.
    Grosjean: Really done well to drag some Q3 performances and good points in that woeful Lotus.
    Vergne: Improved his qualifying, hugely unlucky in the races. Should have more points through no fault of his own.
    Kvyat: Top rookie so far. Made very few rookie mistakes and like JEV, has had some bad luck.

    To take back what I said last night, excellent decision to broadcast both races today by ESPN :-)

    Poor decision by ESPN UK to cut off the coverage for a programme that was out of date just as they were considering restarting. Hope they get this thing under way safely though.

    I always believed the Ferrari was a fraction quicker on more circuits than the McLaren, but it really wasn’t by a massive margin. Obviously McLaren having better reliability did help, and I do feel that the McLaren was arguably the best car of 2007, just. So when they had Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso as a driver pairing, you can’t help but think that they failed dismally that year by not claiming both titles, which they should have done.

    I’m really looking forward to this one, as I do with all the double-headers. It’s not just Hinch who qualifies well but slips back in the races by unnecessarily getting involved in contact a lot, but Takuma Sato. Despite two poles he’s last of all the regular drivers and hasn’t finished the last five races.

    Given how unpredictable IndyCar has been since the DW12 was introduced, I reckon any one of five drivers have a realistic shout if they get a good run of top fives.
