    Red Bull moves Ghasly around to make place for Verstappen, I believe

    I’ve followed Max Verstappen since he drove minikarts and he amazed me every year. Only a few months ago I said it was too early to debuting in de F3 Euroseries. He proved me wrong. Now I think that it’s too early for F1, but I bet he’ll prove me wrong as well.

    At the end of 2015, he will be outperforming Kvyat.

    Just watching the Red Bull X1 drive at Spa (GT6) makes me glad that there are indeed strickt regulations. The car looks great, sure. But would the immense increase of cornering speed contribute to better racing? I highly doubt it.

    Hard to say based on onboard shots. You must realise that drivers feel oversteer before you can see it.

    Still I don’t fully understand. All of Schumacher’s dominating Ferraris had low high noses. The nose of Button’s dominating Brawn was also quite low. McLaren also made quite some competitive cars with low noses the years before 2013. So why is a low nosecone such a big aerodynamic problem in 2014?

    Maybe Caterham are waiting for Grosjean and Maldonado to become available…

    Based on his recent tests in FR 2.0 and Formula 3, I’d say it’s likely that Max Verstappen will drive in F1 at some point. Maybe 2018 is too soon.

    @adityafakhri

    10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 was easily the best point system

    Why? First of all, it did not award the 1st place as well as all other scoring systems ever did, second it only awards 8 drivers, where an average of 18-20 cars finish the race.

    @rjoconnell

    F1 needs more healthy teams, not less.

    That’s why Marussia and Sauber may merge. From two unhealthy teams to hopefully one healthy.

    @mnmracer: always difficult to give grades without taking the quality of the car into account. Therefore I first scrolled down to see how the Caterham and the Marussia drivers were ranked. Strange to see Bianchi awarded with a 7 and Pic with a 4. Was the Caterham that much better?

    Quite interesting though, to come up with a list based solely on whether a driver lived up to the expectations prior to the season. That would mean that Massa is higher on my list than Alonso :)

    That list would be something like this (based on personal expectations):
    Highs: Grosjean, Rosberg, Vettel, Vd Garde
    Lows: Alonso, Maldonado, Pérez, Sutil

    Force India would have quite a strong line up if this becomes reality.

    My top 5:

    1. Tyres: from degrading tyres to non-degrading tyres with much less grip (like in the sixtees ;)). Austin 2012 and Brazil 2013 ‘prove’ that races are much more entertaining when the grip levels are low.

    2. DeTilkefication of tracks that have distinctive layout flaws

    3. No DRS. Overtaking will be improved with point 1 and 2.

    4. Budget cap with massive reduction of overall costs

    5. More testing opportunities for young talents during or after GPs
