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

@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.

I always liked the yellow-and-black Jordans and the yellow-and-black Renaults. I hope it’s true Haas will use those colors next year!

@dragoll nice comment man, and to be honest, I got surprised by what you told me about Australia. Having 2 successful names in F1 and having Brabham as a past reference should be, in my opinion, enough to bring more people into the sport, at least into the circle of people already interested in other forms of car racing.
And yes, F1F is like our “bunker” where people feel comfortable to discuss about our sport.

To improve the sport, some simple approach must be mantained. I think having the points restored to 2013 standards is good enough.
If we have these points for overtaking, it would need a points reorganization as IRL or Indy, but that is so hard to follow.
I would agree with you if there would be JUST ONE POINT for the driver who improved his position the most places during a race. It would not diminish the effort done by top drivers (as, let’s say, Hamilton, wouldn’t choose to start last and try to win the race to get 26 points, when you know it’s too risky and he may end up with nothing) but for a Manor, it could be a good chance for them to try a risky strategy to finish, let’s say, 15th, but having recovered 5 or 6 places, it would recognize their effort.

Deutsche Post, gave the Jordans their yellow color? or at least there was good contrast.

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).

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.

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?
