@kingshark I didn’t say Hulkenberg was better or as good as Alonso or Hamilton. I’m saying he’s done enough to deserve an opportunity at a big team.2nd December 2014, 8:22 at 8:22 am #287919
@kingshark For Brazil 2012 I’d say it was him that was capable of the podium, more so than the car. He did blew it in Bahrain, but otherwise, he hasn’t really had many podium opportunities…
He is worthy of a top drive because he’s time and time again put a midfield car into a 4th, 5th or 6th place finish when it didn’t deserve to be there. Plus his two immense drives in Interlagos proved how good he is.30th November 2014, 3:15 at 3:15 am #287706
Daniel Ricciardo – Dominant Mercedes slipped up three times in 2014, and Ricciardo was always the one there to capitalise. He was quick from the off, qualifying on the front row in his first race for the team. Throughout the year, he was perfect in wheel-to-wheel with creative overtakes, most notably on his teammate in Monza. For me, the driver of the season.
Lewis Hamilton – What made the difference in the title battle was Hamilton’s racing – he held Rosberg off when he was being caught, and he usually managed to get ahead when he was the one catching. Losing the Mercedes qualifying battle was less impressive.
Valtteri Bottas – Had shown speed and maturity in his rookie season, so Williams’ season has surprised me more than Bottas’ performances. After a slower start to the season, he was often the best non-Mercedes driver and deservedly picked up six podiums, being slightly better than Massa on pace, but much better on consistency. Did make some mistakes, the Melbourne one the most costly.
Nico Rosberg – After winning the qualifying battle with Hamilton, he must be considered as one of the sport’s quickest. His damage limitation in Montreal was incredible, but ultimately his inability to outrace his teammate cost him the title.18th November 2014, 16:56 at 4:56 pm #286050
To Sebastian, Fernando and Jenson. You’re in a group of five current drivers that have won world championships. If Nico takes the title on Sunday, would you consider him as a worthy addition to this elite group?25th October 2014, 11:26 at 11:26 am #280284
14 cars will make Q2 I suspect. It’s always so that 10 make Q3, and half of the rest make Q2. It was adjusted mid-season before when Super Aguri folded.25th October 2014, 10:17 at 10:17 am #28028120th October 2014, 11:32 at 11:32 am #279765
Shame about Monza, but overall that’s a positive change. A pretty good calendar.9th September 2014, 14:52 at 2:52 pm #274171
Buxton says in his article that drivers intend to sign a petition by Sochi that they won’t race as long as Canamasas is on the grid. Very interesting!5th May 2014, 7:24 at 7:24 am #258787
@vettel1 He wasn’t far away though, was he? I saw him mentioned in an earlier post and remembered how consistent he was that year, compared to the two title contenders. Alonso and Vettel were very impressive in lesser machinery that year, too!4th May 2014, 20:47 at 8:47 pm #258765

Won’t say for before as I hadn’t followed F1 closely enough.27th March 2014, 7:51 at 7:51 am #254009
2. Eurosport International
3. I’m not quite sure. I think they usually show the Sprint race live, and the Feature race in replay before that. I hope someone else can add info on that as I don’t exactly know.27th March 2014, 7:49 at 7:49 am #254008
2. TV SLO 2 (national TV). Also, Austria’s ORF is accessible.
3. All races live, albeit interrupted by commercials quite a bit (I can switch to ORF, though).
4. Qualy is shown live, except on some occasions when there’s a sporting event on that’s deemed more important (mostly because Slovenes are taking part). It happens maybe twice a year.
5. No live practice – for some years FP2 was live online, but I don’t think it still is.
6. I don’t know how it is elsewhere, but basically every household has to pay and subscibe to the national radioTV by law. So you’re no directly paying for F1 (or sport).
7. They do, all their channels can be watched online (but only by IPs from the country).

@willwood That’s the one I used last year, but haven’t been able to find now. Thanks a lot!20th January 2014, 17:29 at 5:29 pm #242419
