    2003
    – 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.

    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.

    @hunocsi
    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.

    1997

    Round 14/17: Austria
    1. Schumacher – 68 pts
    2. Villeneuve – 67 pts

    Round 15/17: Luxembourg

    Note: Schumi would probably still have pulled off the same stunt in Jerez, so in that sense, Frentzen would still be the likely runner-up in the WDC.
