@andae23 I think that’s an interesting way of looking at it.
Is it possible that all ten team principals put Ricciardo, Alonso and Hamilton in their top five?18th December 2014, 17:10 at 5:10 pm #289228
So when I wrote ‘over to the maths geeks’ I might as well have just written ‘over to @andae23…’. Terrific work!
I guess one starting point might be to ask which of those 29 possible combinations for Hamilton do we think is the most realistic, and then we have ten variables we can remove from the other drivers.
Alternatively we could make certain fixed assumptions about which drivers got which scores from different team principals – e.g. Toto Wolff definitely put Hamilton number one, Christian Horner definitely put Daniel Ricciardo number one etc… But I appreciate this may be rather tricky to programme!
What I do find interesting, though, is that at least one team principal must have put Hamilton outside the top three, unless he got two firsts and eight seconds, which seems a bit unlikely.18th December 2014, 10:15 at 10:15 am #289214
Olivier Panis’s son Aurelian will step up to Formula Renault 3.5 next year with Tech 1. The 20-year-old has had a fairly unspectacular career so far, spending the last three years in Formula Renault 2.0, but he took a breakthrough Eurocup win in Moscow this year.

Not what I’d call a great race but with four Safety Car periods inside 31 laps it was certainly an eventful one. It was a pity Vergne’s car failed him when he was pushing Buemi hard for the lead, but I can’t say I was hoping he’d make a move stick using the wretched Fanboost.
This was definitely the most interesting track the cars have been on so far – narrow and slippery, albeit still with a few too many chicanes to make passing viable. The cars looked quicker within the narrower confines though. Still quite a lot of breakdowns for a one-make series, though.
They’ve clearly toned down the in-race music since the season opener, and that’s very welcome. Good to see them start using team radio as well, though it needs a bit of polish.9th December 2014, 17:22 at 5:22 pm #288481
@yoshif8tures Seems a bit poor that whoever posted it in the first place didn’t even bother to credit who made it. These things don’t happen without a lot of effort and if they were filming at an F1 race weekend that requires Bernie Ecclestone’s say-so which doesn’t come cheaply.
Presumably it was one of Spain’s F1 broadasters, Antena 3 or Movistar.
Anyway I look forward to watching it myself when I get chance. Thanks for posting the link.9th December 2014, 8:37 at 8:37 am #2884448th December 2014, 10:12 at 10:12 am #288325

@junior-pilot And a voiceover from former ITV F1 presenter Jim Rosenthal, I think. Nice spot!2nd December 2014, 21:42 at 9:42 pm #2880002nd December 2014, 18:48 at 6:48 pm #287989
@jb001 I agree entirely – without double points IndyCar went down to the final race in every season since 2006 (before it was reunified).2nd December 2014, 8:25 at 8:25 am #287924
