Mercedes may have wanted to switch from a M-M-H to a M-H-H strategy, but to throw away the mediums after four laps was an enormous waste. Of course if everyone else (and it was almost so) made the same decision we […]
Race 8: Europe
Qualifying: 1st – Race: 2nd
I led free practice by over two seconds on Petrov. I led Q1 by over a second on Alonso, Q2 by just less than one, still on Fernando, and Q3 by almost 1.7 on my team mate, as we locked out the front row. I immediately lost the lead to Alonso, but tried to take it back throughout the first sector. I made…[Read more]
Williams weren’t conservative, they were stupid! Simple maths could show them Massa was going to come out in traffic, and I think Ferrari tend to be harder on the tyres, so they should’ve simply stayed out. That said, I think their performance should have been better and that Massa should have caught up with Vettel.
Metro style has grown on me, and while these graphics look nice on the F1 site or on the F1 App (if they are used), I think the previous graphics were prettier for large TV screens. The rectangles themselves seem to be my issue: they seem too… static, and big.

@junior-pilot I can’t find anything to add to your list! Except maybe:
11. Luca Badoer replaces an ill Raikkonen at Monza and obtains a Grand Slam.
Race 7: Canada
Qualifying: 1st – Race: 1st
I was last in free practice, having had to run on worn slicks on a damp track for our R&D programme. In Q1 I was eleventh, with Alonso leading the session, then it was my turn on top as Alonso was 4th and in Q3 I was first and Alonso 6th. I lost the lead of the race to Rosberg at turn 1, and the German…[Read more]

Did someone from Ferrari actually say that? Wow. Making some strides, are we?

Luckily for them, if it can be said in such a situation, McLaren have the best third driver on the grid.

Daniel Abt and Marvin Kirchhoefer – I have a soft spot for these Germans since they debuted in GP3, and while the latter is still on track to become a future champion, things have gone badly for Abt in GP2 and are continuing that way in FE.
My ideal driver combination: Rudolf Caracciola and Niki Lauda
The what-ifs: Stefan Bellof and Alessandro Nannini
Race 6: Monaco
Qualifying: 23rd – Race: 2nd
I was quickest in free practice, but in Q1 it was raining and for some reason my setup didn’t work at all, and I was relegated to twenty-third place, between the two HRTs, while Alonso set pole. I recovered to eleventh place on the first lap, making overtakes at every possible spot. Alonso broke his…[Read more]
