So they add a chicane to what is already the longest pitlane on the calendar? Ironic, because the circuit is actually one of the shortest.
The pitlane is almost half the track. :O
1 – Split the revenue among the teams up much more evenly.
2 – Get rid of Abu Double.
3 – Only use DRS on circuits which need it most.
The top 5 (Clark, Steward, Alonso, Schumacher & Fangio) is fairly accurate.
The rankings of Rosberg, Senna, and Prost however – are absurd.
– 8 different winners from 5 different teams.
– No DRS or artificial tyres to help the racing.
– A classic title scrap between the three most iconic teams – Ferrari, Williams, and McLaren.
– A brilliant WDC fight between Schumacher, Raikkonen, and Montoya.
– A lot of great races (Australia, Brazil, Austria, Nurburgring, Silverstone, Indianapolis, Japan).
– Just about every team had their own unique livery.
– Some old vintage teams (Minardi, Jordan, Jaguar, BAR Honda, Renault, and Toyota).
– The rise of Raikkonen, Alonso, Button, and Webber.
As an Alonso fan, I would love to see Vettel become his teammate.
Preferably in a tail-happy car which is very difficult to drive.
Teams to fold: Caterham, Marussia, and Sauber.
Van der Garde
Ricciardo on Vettel for me. Brilliant dummy.
I’ve only been watching since 2002 so I won’t be picking any teams before that.
Either the F2007 or F2008, I loved the cherry-red Ferrari’s. Both were stunningly beautiful and fast.
Maldonado took 4 years to win the championship. Close enough.
4. Alonso – Once again impressive in a mediocre Ferrari, but doesn’t have as much amazing performances as in 2012 (or that car was a lot better than the F14 T, which seems likely). A lot more invisible than usual, apart from fantastic performances at China and Hungary. Qualifying still isn’t going well, though.
Seriously? He has “only” out-qualified Kimi by 0.825 s on average, and he’s up 9-1 in qualifying (in Bahrain Alonso had engine power issues). Spain was the only time where Kimi was even in the same ballpark over one lap.
Some myths just never die.
Ricciardo around the outside of Hamilton in turn 2.
Have you seen where Sauber are compared to last year? How do you know that the difference is constructors, not engines?
I also don’t think that the Renault engine is as bad as Red Bull want us all to believe. Red Bull got out-qualified by Mercedes by 0.5 seconds, the same circuit where Alonso and Renault dominated in 2003 despite having 60 to 70 hp less than Ferrari and BMW at the time. Also, RBR are generally at the bottom of the speed traps, several kph slower than STR who use the same engine (they likely run more wing than anyone else, further slowing them down).
I’d say that today was a fantastic day to be an F1 Fanatic.
