Vettel was the best driver of the season even before Hungary. Hamilton’s mediocre performances in Spain and Austria were largely masked by his car.
What I find perplexing is that while the new rules for manual starts after the summer break were not introduced until July 2nd, Hamilton had been suffering with poor starts since Spain. Monaco and […]
Also, I just looked it up on Google Street View and it seems like the new route will have very little run-off area: the way it is drawn, there will be a piece of pavement directly on the exit of 11, so it could […]
I don’t think it will make a whole lot of difference. On the contrary, tightening the hairpin will only discourage overtaking into turn 14. But at least Singapore is getting rid of more and more chicanes, so keep it up!
Alonso for example, finished 4 places ahead of Button, remarkable. But of those 4 places 2 of them were due to the Mercedes duo having issues when they did, in a way that they affected Button but not him. Had the […]
Alonso finished 24 seconds behind Ricciardo in the end, but he was 26.77 seconds behind the leader when the SC got called in on lap 48.
Had the safety car stayed out one more lap and had the lapped […]
With Daniil Kvyat making his first podium appearance, what is your favourite podium line-up? I have a few that were interesting for the unusual line-ups we had!
Such as the Stewart-Prost (Herbert/Trulli/Barrichello) podium, European GP 1999. Totally unexpected!
Or the Monaco 1996 one, Panis/Couthard/Herbert:
And while the…[Read more]

Daniil Kvyat scored his first podium finish and the best-ever result for a Russian driver
In Formula 1 yes, but not in Grand Prix racing. In fact, there were (if I’m not mistaken) three Russian drivers who […]
Senna drove a dominant car for 2 seasons (1988-89), equal best car with Ferrari and Williams respectively for 2 seasons (1990-91), and for the rest of his career he drove cars that were around about […]
Hamilton has under-performed in at least 3 races so far this season. Today in Hungary is obvious. In Spain, he was slow in qualifying and had a bad start. In Austria, he had a bad start, less pace than […]
I guess the connection between a pylon (left or right) and the main front wing element broke, probably due to fatigue. Remember, there is quite some load travelling through those pylons, and the load has to be […]
I’ll bite. Vettel has been hands down the best driver this season. Hamilton was underwhelmng in Spain and Austria, a complete joke today. Vettel has performed in every race apart from Bahrain. The only reason to […]
Many of the drivers Alonso overtook on that lap and in the race (as a matter of fact, the majority of drivers) were on the same Michelin tyres he was. In fact , just before the safety car came out on […]
