    For me there’s an element of wheel to wheel racing that Massa just doesn’t seem to understand, and it’s more to do with defending than overtaking. He seems to think he can just turn into the corner, no matter where another car is, taking whatever line he wants, as long as his car is at least a tiny bit ahead. This is just wrong, but Massa always spouts it out when asked about any incident in which he has turned in on another driver.

    Hamilton on Vergne easily for me. T4 is not an overtaking spot, and they were on similar age tyres. Ricciardo on Hamilton was good, but he had a MASSIVE tyre advantage, and outside of T2 is actually quite a common spot for overtaking.

    I often read threads like this and feel Hamilton still suffers from his poor season in 2011. The last 3 years he has constantly been accused of making too many mistakes, when really he hasn’t made many. This season I can’t think of a single mistake in the races other than the collision with Button (the smallest of misjudgements).

    He has made up for all but 1 of his quali mistakes in the following race (Austria, having won Bahrain and Silverstone, and getting ahead of Rosberg in Canada before his breaks failed).

    Red bull have almost as much of an advantage over the rest of the field as Merc do over them. So it has to be one of there drivers. If it wasn’t for Merc, RB would be more dominant than ever!

    I’ll go for 25. So it will end in Canada, probably hitting a wall in wet conditions.

    I would like to see a win more rewarded. Possibly 25-15-10-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. This would reward a win highly, as well as the other podium positions over the rest of the minor points. Under this system we would have HAM on 75 with ROS on 70. That seems about right to me.

    I wrote Super Aguri off for the 2014 title some time early 08.

    I agree. Can we nominate Hamiltons 5 laps of defensive master class as pass of the race/year?

    I don’t understand Massa’s logic of, “why should I give up my advantage”. He’s basically admitting that he has an unfair advantage and is willing to utilise that. I do a lot of Karting, and the light guys are forever saying they wish they were the same weight as their competitors so that they could prove it’s not all about weight.

    I’m surprised that the general consensus appears to be Ros > Ham and Mag > But. I think I will save my prediction until after the first Bahrain test.

    The next one is interesting. Shows something that looks like Honda 08 “bunny ears” on the nose.

    So bianchi will not be getting any of his choices then.

    It’s because nobody is pushing or racing. No one is on the limit so no one makes mistakes.

    Possibly. But then it could have been caused in Italy qualifying and made worse in Abu Dhabi. The fact is unfortunately we don’t know, all we do know is that in Abu Dhabi it was cracked I suppose therefore, we should only let it affect our judgement of Hamiltons Abu Dhabi performance.

    I think you’re onto something with the pitstop shortcut or increasing the pit lane speed limit. If the penalty for pit stops was lower, more teams would be inclined to make more pit stops as apposed to saving tyres. I think one thing that is clear is that everyone wants to be seeing drivers push harder throughout the race and anything that achieves that will be good. I watched the 2007 USGP a few days ago, and drivers were going off the track all by them selves, because they were pushing over the limit. When was the last time we saw that in a dry race?
