Valtteri Bottas is really doing well compared to last year, so I’m going with him. But I also think Rosberg has improved, Ricciardo and Perez too.

I suppose what you mean is that Bottas could well have been as good as he is now last year. It could have just been the williams he had last year that was letting him down a bit.
I think Perez is getting better than he was last year and he did very well to finnish 3rd in Bahrain.
1) Rosberg – He is in the fastest car there is and he doesn’t seem to be making the few small mistakes that Hamilton is this season.
2) Bottas – Compared to last year, Bottas is finnishing much higher up and in the last 3 races, ending up 3rd in Austria, 2nd in Britain and 2nd in Germany.
3) Hamilton – He still is doing very well considering how…[Read more]

I think Perez has had a big improvement in form. The drivers you listed earlier however, may have always been driving like that but only now people are starting to notice.
1. Ricciardo – This year’s standout performer. When he was signed for Red Bull last year, everyone seemed to be whining about how Red Bull had only hired him to be a whipping boy for Vettel, and that they should’ve employed Raikkonen. Ricciardo has silenced his critics perfectly.
2. Alonso – As good as ever. When you consider that there are at…[Read more]

Hi, I am new to this forum and was having a few issues trying to join another.
Throughout most of this season, Valtteri Bottas has been the driver that has improved most since last year in my opinion. Obviously, the Williams team will be what is helping him out a lot. Either Massa is just extremly unluckey or bottas may prehaps be becoming a…[Read more]
1) Alonso – has to fight for every position and hasn’t put a wheel wrong yet. Contrast to Raikkonen just makes the car look worse and him look even better.
2) Ricciardo – has surprised almost everyone with his performances this season. The qualifying pace isn’t that surprising, but also race pace and wheel to wheel he has been exceptional.
Myself, as well as many other people I spoke too won’t return to any races next year because of the lack of excitement/atmosphere with the new engines. On top of that I won’t pay 500$ Canadian for grandstand tickets, when I have lost all my excitement at the track. Hearing touring car sounding engines is not my idea of aural excitement.
I have…[Read more]
Girts replied to the topic Russia another South Africa for F1: Why is there no talk of dropping the race already? in the forum Formula One 6 hours, 1 minute ago
I do not know if the Russian GP should be dropped but everyone should stop pretending that “sports and politics do not mix” and openly talk about violations of human rights in Russia and the role of Russia in the unrest in Ukraine and MH17 plane crash.
Journalists should ask uneasy questions and drivers should demonstrate their stance as well.…[Read more]
It is true that the new F1 engines have become less loud, that you do not need earplugs anymore and that GP2 is now louder than F1. However, they are still louder than the person next to you, the crowd and the commentators. I do not think the new sound (at Hockenheimring) was particularly “interesting” but I do not think that F1 has lost much…[Read more]
Same as above
Vettel – Kvyat/Ricciardo
Alonso – Bianchi/Hulkenberg
Hamilton – Bottas/Magnussen
I add kevin cos he was showing his raw pace some times but its a bit fluctuating more than other rookies , when he can maintain his pace consistently and get a better car i feel he can be easily replaced for lewis along with Bottas
Globo works like this: “there is a brazilian winner we put a lot of money in it, otherwise forget it”. And this happens with every kind of sport. So they produce a crowd that only like to see brazilian being successful, not caring for the sport itself. It’s ludicrous and as Globo is a giant that runs and pays for almost every sport event, this…[Read more]
Checking the headline I got it wrong (bit of sensationalism from me) but still anyway a serious matter because the significance of F1 for the Brazilians and viceversa is huge.
About the TV rights, the big thing here has been that Mediapro brought the TV rights of F1 in Latin America (except Brazil) on march. The contract runs from 2015 until 2019.
Sounds like a pretty serious development for F1 fans in Brazil. Is the “lack of interest and low ratings” bit just PR spin by them because the rights have been bought by someone else?
Also is the tone of the article really that definite? I don’t speak Portuguese and an online translation has the headline as ‘Globo considering quitting the show…[Read more]
Globo TV, a Brazilian TV Channel (free to air) has decided to stop its broadcastings in 2016 due the lack of interest and low ratings.
Globo TV is one of the most strongest and bigger channels in South America and Brazil.
Last weekend during the German GP. Globo only broadcasted the Q3 while SporTV showed Q1 and Q2 which upset lots of viewers due…[Read more]
