Ferrari has quite the history of drastic changes, no?3rd January 2014, 15:10 at 3:10 pm #247865
@jackysteeg I just hope AFDC makes it to F1. If he doesn’t it may just prove how unlucky 13 is.
But it has had a history of bad luck too (in the pre-F1 era), which caused the ACF to drop 13.29th December 2013, 22:51 at 10:51 pm #24768929th December 2013, 13:35 at 1:35 pm #247656
Here’s my list:
2000: Japan (Schumi ending the Ferrari drought in a straight fight)
2001: Malaysia (Ferrari comeback!)
2002: Australia (Points for Minardi!!!)
2003: Britain (That race had everything – including raving lunatic)
2004: Italy (Another Ferrari comeback!)
2005: Japan (Duh.)
2006: China (Schumi’s last win was just epic)
2007: Canada (Lewis win AND Super Aguri fighting into the points – what’s not to like?)
2008: Brazil (Hated the ending, but by golly that was a RACE)
2009: Australia (The way Brawn stunned everyone that weekend)
2010: Britain (But to be honest, I don’t remember a specific individual race from that year)
2011: Canada (Rain break or otherwise)
2012: Europe (Valencia went out in style)
2013: Monaco (Nico handled that race to perfection)29th December 2013, 13:17 at 1:17 pm #247673
Full statement from resort is there (and the translation has been reported on BBC too). Let’s hope the news stays positive.29th December 2013, 12:53 at 12:53 pm #247671
@colossal-squid Amen to that. And amen again.
BBC and Sky are reporting it, so the incident must be legit. What we don’t know at this point is how serious the injuries are, if at all.27th December 2013, 13:17 at 1:17 pm #24749125th December 2013, 2:23 at 2:23 am #247600
@matt90 Lotus did not race in F1 with engines of their own construction (partnering with Ford, Renault, and Honda among others). So they are not F1 manufacturers for me.23rd December 2013, 10:21 at 10:21 am #247598
For me, in F1 terms, a manufacturer is a team making its own chassis AND engine (as well as road cars, obviously). So for the purposes of this ranking, McLaren is not included, as is Renault’s success as an engine (but not chassis) builder and supplier.

Just a hunch, this MAY be the 2013 FIA Gala video. Had similar title/format last year. Will be shown 4 times on Christmas Day on Sky Sport Italia. Please help record, Italian friends! :)17th December 2013, 7:15 at 7:15 am #24593516th December 2013, 14:47 at 2:47 pm #238255
Lopez of USF1 fame? Awe…some?16th December 2013, 1:20 at 1:20 am #247132
Vettel’s win is the first for F1 since… 1977, when Niki Lauda won it.
Which means, yes, Prost, Senna, and Schumacher all never won overseas SPOTY honors.
Of the Brits, 4 people won it: Moss, Stewart, Mansell (twice), and Damon Hill (twice). John Surtees won in 1959, but he won it for his achievements in motorcycle racing, not F1. Clark, Graham Hill, and Hunt could do no better than 2nd.
