    Heck no, don’t ditch it! I love the discussions between F1Fanatic members. Driver of the Day is probably going to be via Twitter and that sucks.

    The good thing about the Driver of the Weekend here is that we get to see why we think someone deserves the award. We comment about it together and we end up with a conclusion in the poll, taking into consideration, not just the race, but the overall weekend. Plus, Keith, you sum up eveyr driver’s performance and that makes a great comparision during the season.

    F1F’s Driver of the Weekend > Anything else.

    Reading about it got me thinking: this is basically how manufacturers compete these days.

    I’d not surprise me that once Citroen and Toyota get their 2017 WRC going, Volkswagen quits the series. It’s how they run, they come, they dominate, and they leave once there’s a new competitor.

    It’s probably easier and better for both Citroen at WTCC or Volkswagen at the WRC to dominate without much opposition than truly compete with other manufacturers in series with not as much coverage as other world championships.

    Michael Schumacher: he had many. The ones I remember more vividly were Brazil 2006 and Hungary 1998. China 2006, tho, was just epic from him. I’ll never forget that night, watching it alone in my living room and cheering so hard I woke up my mother when he overtook Fisico on the inside at turn 2!

    Mark Webber: probably Nurburgring 2009. A lot going on there.

    Fernando Alonso: I think his best ever drive was Hungary 2006. He didn’t finish, but he could’ve well won. His first lap there, for me, ties with Senna’s magic lap at Donington. Valencia 2012 is a good one but everyone ahead either crashed or retired, so not the best. Malaysia 2012 was a good one too.

    Lewis Hamilton: uhm… Silverstone 2008. Maybe also Nurburgring 2011, that was a great 3 way battle with Mark and Fernando.

    Jenson Button: Canada 2011, no doubt.

    Sebastian Vettel: could well be Belgium 2012! he fought from start to finish. Abu Dhabi 2012 was good too but the car was specifically set up to recover from the pitlane start and overtaking, and he was already the fastest there in qualy. At Spa in 2012 he was far from fastest, and he still made it work.

    Felipe Massa: Brazil 2008, the pressure at home, and with the championship down to the wire must’ve been terribly tense for him. Sad it didn’t work out in the end.

    Buenos Aires is probably listed as “to be confirmed” because of the Goverment and Presidential elections. Considering that this year’s race was impulsed by the Buenos Aires governor, who’s now pushing for President, I bet they are waiting to discuss it.

    That’s quite cool. We get all sorts of “Senna Editions” but nothing from Prost, another Grand Prix legend.

    And I have to say that a) I really like those details with Prost’s helmet scheme and b) it sort of looks like a subtle version of the Fina McLaren F1 GTR.

    LOL “each member of the teams contributes, whether in Amsterdam, Tokyo or in a wall… that’s the key to success!”

    RACER has confirmed through multiple sources that Hinchcliffe had the steel wishbone enter and exit his right leg, then enter his upper left thigh, and continue into his pelvic region before it came to a stop.

    I have to say, I don’t understand oval racing… I’m wishing all the drivers the best and hope the race takes place without incident.

    The problem with this race is that… it’s WTCC. It seriously sucks! the field is as tiny as F1, and the cars are not that spectacular tbh. There are so many other touring cars series far better than it, and a lot more competitive.

    But at least we’re going to have some very cool shots of the Nords, which is just heaven on earth. I’ve been there in March 2014 and I still can get over how amaizing it is to drive it and how every single nerve on your body understands right away the significance of the place. Just standing at the carpark, it feels like another planet.

    I’m with @fastiesty , Alonso’s first lap at Hungary 2006 was just mindblowing. Watching the replay, how the drives through the field, finding grip everywhere besides the racing line. And that flamboyant driving style he had back in those days, throwing the steering on turn in. Fantastic.
