I found my maiden and so far only COTD was on June 12, 2013. Here it was
“I’m predicting him to be a five (or even six) times champion when this contract ends. Probably renewed again.
Why would he leave if the team is so good? Hamilton left McLaren because he was just fed up of the “usual” poor reliability at the beginning of the seaso […] View

@damon assuming cars can really pull out a big gap AND that the grid remains so one-sided, yes, it would end up with only the two Mercs going for it in the end, or Mercs and RBs. But the Ferrari vs Williams vs Force India battle would prove thrilling. At least in my opinion. Well, of course you can disagree, because to make my humble proposal be heard and approved by FIA, there is a better chance to for me to find a unicorn :P

About F1, I hope Pirelli doesn’t mess their tyres again. I’m so fed up with tyres that explode as soon as the driver really tries to push.
And about this site, @keithcollantine, what happened to that “+1” button that appeared here as a beta, for I think a couple of days? Probably in that way we could also choose the COTD.

I saw people can include any pass from any year, so I choose Kimi on Fisichella in Japan, 2005.
And Vettel on Ricciardo last week reminded me of that awesome pass of Alonso on Schumacher, in the same race.
What a race!!!

Hard for me to remember every single one on every single race, but to me, Ricciardo is the one who shows to be the best at the moment to get as much as he can from the car. But Verstappen has started to make him work for his salary harder. And that’s good for us fans.
2. Then Hamilton for not giving up, despite the demolition Rosberg gave him at the beginning of the year, especially at the starts.
3. Max. Needless to say why.
4.Sainz for showing he could be in a top team as well, and making Kvyat look so unskilled in contrast.
5.Alonso for showing he deserves a Honda which fights for wins.
6.My hero Vettel comes next, part unlucky, part nervous and bad-tempered sometime, as that last lap chasing Hamilton and losing control, spinning. I really hope he can bounce back. But how to forget his starts in Australia and Canada. Please Ferrari, give him the tool he needs and deserves, and stop spoiling his races.
7. Button has shown he is still a safe pair of hands, but needs to be a match to Alonso.

@azulio so every 2 laps times are wiped out? Tyres won’t get any faster, just slower. Even if it worked as a hectic method to keep qualifying alive, it would result contradictory to have a pole sitter with slower times than somebody who was dropped in 12th place, so to speak. How are the laps measured, respect to whom I mean? What if the guy who was running 1st decides to go at SC speeds on the second lap, to save tyres. What would be the referencial lap then? We might end up watching a fast “quali” lap, then cars going very slow because the second lap doesn’t count, right? they could try to improve the lap time on the second lap, but the clocks would get all our attention.
You say pits are banned, but what about a car crashing, so quali continues? Are cars supposed to stay out?
I don’t know, so many more questions already.
And don’t get me started about sponsors wanting their 5 min break for TV ads.

@ambroserpm Maybe more than CGI, they use the advantage of having still cameras, so they just let Seb go, then release the container a minute later and with a couple of computer’s tweaks they put it together.

Vettel on Alonso in Monza 2011

Well, this site is good, but if I could add a couple of things, they would be:
COTD based on a “thumbs up” system, which only users could click.
Return to the old version of graphics, where you could usually select some drivers.
Return the “report comment” button.
And what about DOTW giving us the chance to rank 3 drivers? It would stop the “pity vote” some users usually mention

Paul di Resta and Adrian Sutil… nah they were just mediocre.
As a nightmare lineup, I would pick Narain and Maldo.

Vettel: When his car got on fire in Korea 2010. Honestly, that day I thought his WDC challenge was over.
Hamilton: When he got stuck in China 2007 on that tiny piece of gravel. He would have been champion easily without that thing.

@girts But I never said they are less worthy. You have to admit some of them have occurred just for plain luck, though. I know it’s hard sometimes to climb to second, but sometimes a crash takes the two leaders out, as hulk and hamilton in Brazil 2012 or the two red bulls in Turkey 2010.

They WOULDN’T risk quali, that’s what I wanted to say, but went autocorrected or something like that…

@dragoll, @pt, @anto What about this (I know I may be bashed for this, as I have seen a really fierce but good defense of not giving points for overtaking):
As I said once, I would give ONE point to the driver who bettered the most positions during the race. (If you started 23rd and ended up 4th, for example) Giving just one point to only one driver would ensure somehow:
1. That nobody risks qualifying position to assure just a point. I mean, Hamilton or Vettel (to say so) would risk qualifying badly on purpose to have just a point. But we could see interesting strategies by the backmarkers.
2. That it would be useless to overtake back and forth, because only the difference between finishing and starting position would count.
Have your say, I’m waiting for your opinions.
