I imagine 2 possible “universes”
1. Button gets the championship with McLaren this year. Magnussen ends up as “another big promise” (another Diresta?) so Kevin is fired by Ron. Jenson decides to retire with his second belt. Alonso goes to McLaren in 2015 after he is beaten by Kimi (just a couple of points, but that’s so much to take for Fer) and seeing the champion’s car is available in McLaren, he grabs it, with Dennis or not. Hulkenberg takes the mighty number 27 where it belongs, to Ferrari, where he gets the championship in 2015. The Red Bulls are nowhere near the podium this year, in a McLaren2013-like campaign. Mercedes gets more victories but it’s Rosberg who gets the most of them, and so Nico gets the “first driver” treatment. Hamilton can’t stand it and returns to McLaren, where (oh surprise) it’s Fernando again.
2. Kimi gets the championship, Alonso can’t stand it and leaves to McLaren. Button goes to Williams. Massa fails again and retires. Valteri’s seat goes to Susie Wolff, who has a Chilton-esque campaign. Valteri takes Gutierrez’s seat. Gutierrez dissapears from F1. Hulkenberg takes Fernando’s seat and gets the championship in 2015.25th February 2014, 22:57 at 10:57 pm #249846
I love racing games, but not only f1 ones.
- NFS Pursuit 2010
- NFS Most Wanted (don’t confuse it with THE most wanted that was released in ’12 or ’13, the one I like is from 2009 I think, or even older)
- Tekken )the original version, because I have a slow laptop and this game is the only one that runs decently, and also because is for 2 players)
- I was playing Assasin’s Creed Revelations last year, but the game never got me “addicted”, so I just uninstalled it. The same with an old mistery game called “Call of Cthulhu” a game about Lovecraft’s Universe. That game is so boring! A lot of cinematics and really little to play, and the riddles to discover are so intricated, I guess I like games where I just play straight away, not the ones where I’m wondering what the hell to push or pull to open a door.
Lately i played and finished Flatout Carnage (an excellent racing-destructino derby game) and nowadays I’m playing “Split/Second” a game which is about a reality show program where every episode is a race with hazards (ala Death race movie). It’s great, but I don’t have much time to play it these days.6th February 2014, 17:08 at 5:08 pm #248564
it’s necessary to remember that this technology was also very unrelianle in Mclaren many years ago (in the times of Kimi I think)3rd February 2014, 14:20 at 2:20 pm #248471
Vettel on pole depends on his car running more than 1 lap. Let’s see if Barhein is like Q3 (I mean, Red Bull storming again). Remember last year? Mercedes and Ferrar showing the best pace, then Saturday Q3 comes and Vettel was on pole, 90% of the times.3rd February 2014, 14:14 at 2:14 pm #248415
In F1 (and I guess in Law too) there isn’t the “spirit” of the rules. Lawyers work hard to interprete laws according to what is convenient for their clients. F1 engineers work hard to say “hey, there’s not small-letters in this rulebook, let’s do this”.31st January 2014, 13:30 at 1:30 pm #203640
When you have a “Leave Me Alone, I know what I’m doing” specially-made t-shirt, and you frame your PJ Tierney prize poster to hang it in your living room, near your wedding pic.29th January 2014, 23:03 at 11:03 pm #248427
I would create just these rules:
1. No team has veto power.
2. Any idea proposed by FIA about regulations must be approved by vote with all these members: a) A vote by all the constructors b) a vote by all the drivers c) A vote by all the Track owners. As a whole, they are like 60 people, and this vote would avoid things like double points, super expensive tickets to GPs and many boring street races as Valencia (yes, even the SuperValenciaGP was bad for me) or Singapore). I know it sounds as burocracy, but it may lead to more consensus.
3. Cars are free to any engineering design, with the only limits of Minimum weight and minimum (and maximum) dimensions. Maybe I would add a rules stating cars should not have anything right in front of the front tyres, so aero packages would be less decisive.29th January 2014, 0:06 at 12:06 am #248384

Great questions, I’ve just done it too.27th January 2014, 14:33 at 2:33 pm #203619
When last year, I was waiting for March 16th exciitedly, as the day of the Australian GP, and something else, quite important too… ah yes, my sister’s wedding. I remember I missed part of the party to see an F1 program on TV previous to the race :P22nd January 2014, 1:43 at 1:43 am #248088
@keithcollantine a little problem, when you log in and you open a link, sometimes you are asked to log in again.
Another little thing is that when you logged in in the “old” web (previous to the tweaks), you could see a number in a circle if people mentioned you, now that number is always zero, but you have to open the top-right menu and find out if you have notifications (where the number is shown, but inside the menu). It’s not hard work I know, but the old version was more helpful, as you immediately knew if somebody had interacted with you.18th January 2014, 21:49 at 9:49 pm #135079
I found a pic which I only slightly edited. It’s Vettel at Milton Keynes last year, celebrating the 4th championship, but the interesting detail is that in the pic you can only see the “V” and not the full “IV”. I guess it can be a foreseeing pic about the outcome this year, no matter how many double or triple points FIA wants to establish, he can win with a couple of races left, as he has already shown twice… or he can recover from 3rd in the WDC to 1st in the last race (I would laugh so hard if he gets it because of the double-points rule), as in 2010, or he can recover from a massive crash in the last race, as in 2012… well, he can do it and I want to believe he WILL do it again this 2014. My support will stay without watching the races, but not all can be perfect right?13th January 2014, 17:18 at 5:18 pm #248073
That’s sad, you could see him laughing and cheering JB all the time. RIP4th January 2014, 21:47 at 9:47 pm #247836
Force India 2013: Sutil and Diresta
Force India 2014: Hulkenberg and Perez
Without a single race in 2014, Most of us can assure this year’s line-up is better (even in WDC standings) than 2013′s.27th December 2013, 13:03 at 1:03 pm #247519
