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.21st July 2014, 22:39 at 10:39 pm #267680
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).12th May 2014, 22:03 at 10:03 pm #260130
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!9th May 2014, 22:39 at 10:39 pm #259450
I’ll go for 25. So it will end in Canada, probably hitting a wall in wet conditions.24th April 2014, 18:48 at 6:48 pm #258085
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.15th April 2014, 14:57 at 2:57 pm #257020
I wrote Super Aguri off for the 2014 title some time early 08.8th April 2014, 19:48 at 7:48 pm #256037
I agree. Can we nominate Hamiltons 5 laps of defensive master class as pass of the race/year?6th April 2014, 14:32 at 2:32 pm #255667
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.2nd February 2014, 18:55 at 6:55 pm #248467
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.27th January 2014, 18:38 at 6:38 pm #248286
The next one is interesting. Shows something that looks like Honda 08 “bunny ears” on the nose.16th December 2013, 15:21 at 3:21 pm #247212
So bianchi will not be getting any of his choices then.19th November 2013, 15:44 at 3:44 pm #245505
It’s because nobody is pushing or racing. No one is on the limit so no one makes mistakes.18th November 2013, 18:00 at 6:00 pm #245143
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.18th November 2013, 14:17 at 2:17 pm #245438
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?18th November 2013, 12:18 at 12:18 pm #245435
I see your point in terms of costs, however, what irks me about that is we take sets of wets to every race when we know they won’t be used because a race will be red flagged if they are required. Also, maybe only a few extra would be needed,as less of each compound could be taken. For example. Teams could take 4 of each tyre, so 16 overall, as apposed to the 11 that are taken now.
There are definitely flaws, but I think giving teams the choice of which compounds they use is definitely a good thing.
