    Verstappen on Ricciardo, both for the skill (and guts) showed by the “kid” and because it is a Red Bull and I think that on a management level, Horner must feel “insulted” by that move (and that makes the pass even more special, considering how awful Horner has been behaving lately).


    @ph you can add Kimi helmets or at least one Seb’s helmet there!


    McLaren’s livery has easily become the first dissapointment of 2015.
    Let’s hope they listen to THEIR fans and change it for good! There is still some time to do it.


    I have a tie between 2:
    Irvine and his Jaguar.
    Raikkonen during his McLaren years (the black and red one)


    @f1fanf1fan oh, that race… I almost cried in the end (or did I?). I remember the TV host saying on the previous laps “that tyre is vibrating so much, it could blow” “it could make Kimi spin”… and then on the last lap it happened. Sore day.


    I would like Vettel to bring reddish helmets from now on, such as the one he had in Japan last year.

    And about Schubert, well, I know it saved Felipe’s life, but how unlucky he was that the spring hit in the “chink of the armour” which was the place where the visor joins the helmet.
    I read somewhere that zone has been reinforced since the accident.


    As I don’t know how to embed, I beg fans to post the mega pass of Hakkinen on Schu with Zonta in the middle. As I have mentioned before, that race is the one that brought me back to F1.
    Needless to say which race, true fans know what I’m talking about!!!!


    A “simpler” solution would be that, when FIA gives the order to lapped cars to run until they unlap, the rest of cars (the ones still going behind the safety car) reduce their speeds even more, maybe just 20 km per hour. That way the lapped cars would get their place faster.


    Regarding Toto’s comments (about his dislike of double points finale), and just to start a silly conspiracy theory (personally I’m not fond of them), let’s imagine Hamilton retires, let’s say, on lap 1 or 10, I mean, early laps. Would Mercedes pitcrew get an order to handicap Nico’s car as well? A super-long pitstop? An unsafe release or any other stuff in order to avoid the scandal that would be to have Rosberg champion because of the Abu Dumbi rule? I know teams want to win, but at the same time, both championships are already secured by Mercedes. Wouldn’t they do what it takes to avoid a perpetual stain on the championships they have worked so hard for throughout all this season?


    After all the bad comments I often read about F1 backstage, the new rules and devices such as DRS, the upcoming landslide of street circuits and this year dominance that hasn’t helped to improve the show respect to Red Bull winning times, just the contrary in my opinion (although I know many people consider this year racing better than ever, I consider 2010 and 2012 as really electrifying years) and knowing that Hamilton can lose a long and well deserved championship because of a farce, makes nothing but taking me away from F1. This year I haven’t seen some races for the first time since Spa 2000, the race that brought me into F1 (I was so lucky that, after not watching F1 for 10 years due to not having it broadcast in my country, the first race I saw while I was zapping was Spa 2000). F1 is starting to be little by little out of my life, from passion to mild interest only.


    @f1fanf1fan 2010. It has the intra team battle between Seb and Webber. It has Alonso at his “second best” (well, 2012 was his prime) winning important races. It has the crash at Turkey between Seb and Mark (especially after “sweet Monaco”, and also with Button and Hamilton battling soooo close in the same race. It has RB’s double DNF in Korea. Maybe as overtaking-related it was not a really exciting season, but the drama in Abu Dhabi, Ferrari’s wrong call to worry about Mark and let Seb clinch it, and the fact that Vettel didn’t lead the WDC until the very last moment is thrilling enough for me.


    @octopotent maybe you should quote him using the “@” to see his whereabouts. The same goes for my friend @celeste . Where is she?




    Ricciardo on Perez taking the outside line. Wowww!!!
