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.6th September 2015, 1:58 at 1:58 am #304549
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.12th July 2015, 0:54 at 12:54 am #301849
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.25th June 2015, 0:52 at 12:52 am #300802
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.9th June 2015, 2:30 at 2:30 am #299792
LOL “each member of the teams contributes, whether in Amsterdam, Tokyo or in a wall… that’s the key to success!”8th June 2015, 15:31 at 3:31 pm #29974919th May 2015, 18:45 at 6:45 pm #298583
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.14th May 2015, 22:45 at 10:45 pm #298395
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.22nd April 2015, 2:45 at 2:45 am #297303
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.17th March 2015, 8:15 at 8:15 am #294667

I’m looking for a team for the Sebring 12HRs coming in a few weeks. Anyone running?
BTW, McLaren-Honda coming to the system too ! http://www.iracing.com/iracingnews/iracing-news/mclaren-iracing-to-build-virtual-mclaren-honda-mp4-3027th February 2015, 21:58 at 9:58 pm #293176
Heck, I hate when they put electro music over the engine sounds !

The guy recording says “it wasn’t normal what he has done, it went very weird”…6th February 2015, 21:40 at 9:40 pm #291849
Thats not a huge excuse. Rubens did very well and he wasnt used to either manuals (he said so in the interview) and right hand side steering. If anything Lewis, Mark and Jenson had the advantage of doing it twice. And even more those on later seasons, the track has been getting faster in the last 3 corners with the Stig going more and more over the apex.30th January 2015, 12:22 at 12:22 pm #291170
Sorry im a bit late on this since I’m on holidays. I’ve seen the article and since we did the q and a, things have changed. Its been said that Fox Sports LA renewed the contract with the TV rights holder but now it’ll be like Sky and BBC. Half the races will be shown on SD and HD cable but half of them will be highlights late in the day. The whole calendar will be shown on a different paid channel which,as far as I know, has not released prices yet.
Hope this helps correcting the table you’ve released earlier this week @keithcollantine
