@mathers – I think it was a mix of over-aggressiveness and luck. I braked far too late into turn 3, but it really worked to my advantage, though I probably should have got a penalty! From then on, people seemed to keep having problems behind me and that helped preserve my shock lead. I’m not expecting a result as good in the next few races, until…[Read more]
Vettel was the best driver of the season even before Hungary. Hamilton’s mediocre performances in Spain and Austria were largely masked by his car.

Both Max and Carlos have 4 DNF’s to their name. In fact, Max didn’t finish 5 races, but in China he completed enough of the race distance in order to be classified.
As paragraph four makes clear, the data is […]
I am genuinely shocked at that. Don’t get me wrong, 16th & 20th is nothing to write home about, but I was fully expecting us to be plumb last, possibly ahead of Ocelot, so that’s a nice surprise. Would be awesome if we could somehow nick a point.

Biggest surprise for me is Grosjean soundly outperforming Maldonado again this year, I had considered them to be fairly even on pace. If Renault do end up buying Lotus out, then it would be fitting for Romain to […]

@davef1 Red Bull is indeed famous for promoting drivers with potential even if they are not the quickest yet. I do not think it was the case in Hungary though. Verstappen was faster than Sainz, who was holding the […]

I hope that Renault are going to buy Lotus and get along without PDVSA’s money as Maldonado’s collisions and penalties stopped being funny a long time ago. This might be a good opportunity for Hulkenberg.

Great graphs and stats @keithcollantine . Really puts the inter team battles into perspective.
Interesting to see how close it is between Massa & Bottas ,and Ricciardo & Kvyat this season. Also puts in to […]
If Hamilton had so called superior race pace to Vettel, he could have passed the traffic and challenged Vettel.
Hungaroring aint the easiest of circuits to overtake on, and having pace is never a guarantee for […]
What’s your point? Vettel was desperate for a Ferrari drive?
He made a difficult decision of leaving a team he won WDCs with for a long term punt with Ferrari. That’s hardly a desperate attempt to abandon ship
During the past 5 to 6 seasons, Red Bull has been a class above the Ferrari. Even as poor as they are right now, and as good as Ferrari is this season, they are just slightly behind the Ferrari.
I don’t think a […]
Well.. Let’s wait for this season to be complete before we can get an accurate assesment of Kvyat vs Ricciardo. To be honest, I’m not surprised by how close it is between them. During pre season, I had tipped […]
But Hamilton wasn’t slower than Vettel, he just had a bad start, went off the track and then drove straight into another car, all of these things which lost him way too much time. Rosberg, however, was definitely […]
How can they not rate Ricciardo highly? He beat their #1 driver in his 1st season as teammates together. He took 3 wins as compared to Vettel’s 0 , outqualified and outraced him despite being a newbie in the team.
