Hülkenberg, Da Costa and Bianchi
In that case they can commandeer Shennington or a kart track in that vicinity and have an F1 drivers kart race there.
I think that for a feature Top Gear should invite the whole F1 grid to do a kart race on the test track;
Vettel, Kimi, Hamilton, JB and I reckon Ricciardo would be up for it, and then TG could prepare a load of TKMs in exactly the same manor, with each engine tested on the dyno to ensure equality.
I may have gone on a bit, but I would really like TG to do that.
On the spoiler pic, it looks like he did a 43.9
The track when Hamilton set his first lap wasn’t even fully wet; it was damp at most.
I work at a kart track, and I know that small changes even in humidity and temperature can drastically affect a cars performance.
The only way to be sure who is quicker would be to get them both at the TG track at the same time, and get them to drive 2 indentical karts; they can agree on which engines they would use, etc…
Anyway, Button showed that when a track is greasy, the car doesn’t exactly lose a lot of performance; the difference between his 2 laps at TG; one in damp conditions and one in dry conditions was only 0.2 seconds.
I think that it will end up being a battle for the RBR seat between Riccirado and Da Costa, with Vettel remaining in the team long-term.
Either Hulkenberg, Grosjean or Ricciardo
Top 5 from second half of season:
Top 10 from the overall season:
4: Kimi Raikkonen
5: Charles Pic
(Number 5 is questionable, but no-one has really stood out in the season, with the exception of the 5 mentioned drivers over the course of the season.)
I actually really like the success ballast rule.
It’s a very good idea, as the cars are quite different in terms of performance, and most importantly, it works.
in that case, Nelson Piquet in 8th

The next problem (now that Daytona MK seems to be the favourite) is what type of event to do.
Shall we do an endurance, team event with drivers paired off at random?
Or an individual race with heats and a final on the same day?
