But as far as I remember (again, just by memory) Rosberg lost out simply because, over seventy laps, he was just a little slower than Hamilton. And I’m saying this should have granted Hamilton more wins, or, at […]
Credit to Rosberg where it’s due: it was also his merit if Hamilton, who could’ve won 19 races this year, didn’t. Apart from mechanical failures Hamilton made silly mistakes and lost out frequently in qualifying, […]
I can agree with this. Ricciardo was almost faultless and beat his team mate. Alonso was almost as effective but less eye-catching, and certainly had all the reasons to do well, having a new team mate in a team he […]
Season 3 – Ferrari #1
Race 1: Australia
Qualifying: 1st – Race: 1st
I was first in free practice by seven tenths. In Q1 I struggled and qualified in 15th place by a tenth or so; in Q2 I was 6th, a second off Alonso, but only on my fourth lap, having risked elimination. Times in Q3 were much slower as my Q2 time would have secured me pole, and…[Read more]
For that reason, Rosberg did better in that Hamilton had the capabilities to destroy him but didn’t, and Nico performed well above his standards and what we thought he could. Rosberg may not have pushed Hamilton […]
I’m glad to see this after the situation had declined. I’m happy Tombazis has left, not sure of Fry, but now let’s keep it like it is for a few years or there won’t be time to see the results.
I was happy to see […]
Fixy commented on the post, Ferrari appoint Gutierrez as test and reserve driver 4 days, 19 hours ago
Great news! I’m a huge Guti fan, disappointed, though, by his F1 career so far. I don’t think it’ll happen, but Massa spent an year as Ferrari test driver and that turned out well…
Then I thought who he […]

Well considering this is a British site…
I’ve said it already, currently McLaren have a young and an experienced driver. Why would they want two “oldies”? Sure they both are still quick, but they’re going to have to be replaced soon and Magnussen (maybe […]

Or without Magnussens poor performance throughout the year McLaren would be comfortably be ahead.
They should go for the young Maldonados – Cecotto + Canamasas! They have the money to race for several seasons in GP2, despite the cars they destroy. And while Cecotto has become consistent I’m sure all it would take for the battle to start would be Canamasas running into him at the first race. They should be far behind everyone else so no one…[Read more]

What’s the point of increasing the minimum weight now? All the teams have slaved away to reach the minimum weight for this year. All the money and time to get the cars slimmed down was for nothing.
Raikkonen did much worse compared to Alonso than Massa ever did. Massa was either super-consistent (2011) or had ups and downs, which at least brought some good results. But we’ve seen how much Felipe has improved […]
1. Hamilton – no reason to rank him any lower. 11 wins out of 19 races, including some great recoveries and 7 poles. The machinery was miles above the rest but it finally gave him the chance he deserved, and he took it.
2. Rosberg – proved many wrong. At Williams he was said to be but mediocre, after beating Schumacher three years in a row it was…[Read more]
I always liked Vettel, and honestly I was sad to be unable to cheer for him as he drove for a rival team. And at the same tea I was sad to have to cheer for Alonso just because of the team he drove for. Vettel to […]
I just think it’s wrong not to put the World Champion as best driver – and we’re not talking of Mike Hawthorn or Keke Rosberg. So:
