@atticus-2 Wow, that’s quite a coincidence – a very similar thing happened to me. I went swimming today and you’re free to choose any locker that’s still available. 77 was the first I saw and it instantly reminded me of Bottas, but it was dirty inside so I took 80 instead :)8th January 2014, 9:00 at 9:00 am #245559
Wow. Could be a title favourite!
Looks like 3.5 is on for another high quality season.2nd January 2014, 15:54 at 3:54 pm #247286
Was di Resta also asked to propose a number? And what about the 3 seats for which we don’t know the drivers yet?29th December 2013, 22:29 at 10:29 pm #247276
How would we know it’s not merely a coincidence?29th December 2013, 20:35 at 8:35 pm #247273
@fastiesty Yeah, the champion chooses a career number as well, then decides whether he’ll use 1 or the career number in 2014. So in that respect he doesn’t lose out.
21 would be quite funny, and 11 would make sense if he expects to have 1 on the car for many a year.
And if, for some reason, a driver took another driver’s number on purpose just to mess with them, it’s the latter’s fault for sharing it publicly so early!29th December 2013, 11:07 at 11:07 am #247270
Why has he got to send three numbers? As this year’s champion he’ll get whichever number he wishes.21st December 2013, 9:31 at 9:31 am #230342
It’s not that bad a line-up, but given the strength of the pairings at Williams and Force India, I can’t see them beating either of those teams if Sauber don’t have a much quicker car. Toro Rosso probably have a better line-up too.18th December 2013, 18:57 at 6:57 pm #24725017th December 2013, 11:45 at 11:45 am #247559
Red Bull: Vettel by quite some margin. Ricciardo will outqualify him a couple of times.
Mercedes: Hamilton, only by a few points.
Ferrari: Alonso, only by a few points.
McLaren: Button, but Magnussen won’t be far behind.
Lotus: Grosjean will be miles ahead in the final standings, but Maldonado will outpace him on a few occasions.
Force India: Hulkenberg. Perez won’t be far behind, but neither very close.
Sauber: If it’s Sutil and Gutierrez, I think Sutil’s experience will be decisive. Not a huge margin.
Toro Rosso: Vergne, just.
Williams: Bottas, but it’ll be as close a battle as any.
Marussia: Bianchi, and he’ll score a point or two. Gap depends on who the teammate is.
Caterham: Van der Garde (if it’s him and Pic/Ericsson). Not a huge gap.3rd December 2013, 23:19 at 11:19 pm #245997
Grosjean – Started the season a bit off the pace as he was struggling with the car, and Monaco was a terrible weekend. But in the second part of the year he managed to show what he’s made of. He was Red Bull’s main challenger in the last few races and had some amazing drives, most notably in Austin. A first win is now overdue.
Pic – Another rather anonymous season. Not a bad year, but he hadn’t had a standout performance (only driver not to make Q2 all year). With so many talented youngsters knocking on F1′s door, I don’t think he’s done enough to stay in F1.1st December 2013, 14:15 at 2:15 pm #246740
2012 Brazilian Grand Prix, easily.1st December 2013, 11:00 at 11:00 am #246535
I imagine it’s late because it’s the end of the season, and the main prizes will be given out and so forth.
