    Actually a very interesting comparison. On paper, Rosberg achieved more, but then he did have a dominant car for three years rather than 8 races!

    As others have mentioned, the only real reference point for comparison is their time against Lewis Hamilton. Button pushed him close for three years, while Rosberg did the same for four.

    @diceman and don’t forget said 37-year old teammate was severely hurt in his title chances by technical problems and incompetence by the team. Barrichello was the better driver in 2009 to the point that to anyone actually remembering that year will find the discussion about the validity of Rosberg’s title this season hilariously inane, given as…[Read more]

  • 01. Fernando Alonso: He has placed the car in a position that is not deserved. He is doing this year the same thing he was doing in Ferrari. No matter what he is the most desired driver of the grid for the Mercedes seat. He gained experience all these years while retaining his magic. Good strategy, good in car development, good in speed and…[Read more]

  • I just happened to spot this while doing some googling:

    Which of Paul Ricard’s 167 tracks should F1 use?

    Its an article from 2012 about which layout to use in Paul Ricard the last time there was a rumbling about a race being there. Now that it looks certain to be on the Calendar for 2018 – time for a re run of this poll ahead of…[Read more]

  • 1: Daniel Ricciardo
    Definitely the standout driver of 2016. His bad weekends were still 7/10. His worst is ridiculously high and he definitely stepped up when challenged by a very promosing young driver. The smiling assassin is my choice for driver of the season.

    2: Sergio Perez
    Surprised to see him beating H├╝lkenberg. Definitely improved in…[Read more]

    So up until the mid-season rankings I had a rating of a drivers each week which helped me give an order but I stopped it shortly after. This order is probably close to what the ratings would produce but you have to take the season as a whole anyway so maybe it’s better that I don’t let them influence…[Read more]

  • With calendar negotiations, you have to determine what is a bargaining position and what is definitive. It looks to me for example that Malaysia is definitely not going to renew.

    Singapore is likely a bargaining position, as it’s a mighty effective race, and will be free of competition in the region once Malaysia leaves. That one is about getting…[Read more]

  • Hard to call. Button got many good cars so the chances of him doing a Canada 2011 (or even Hungary 2006) was greater than Rosberg’s.

    But when Rosberg did get a dominant car (which he did 3 times), even the BGP001 pales in comparison (over a season, anyway). That plus the 1 or 2 seasons of rather OK cars in the last years of the V8 era.

    Button…[Read more]
