It’s a surprise not to see Rome in the calendar. I wonder what happened.8th September 2013, 18:05 at 6:05 pm #241433
Best Driver: Hulkenberg
Worst Driver: Di Resta
Best Team: Red Bull
Worst Team: Force India
Best Overtake: Alonso on Webber
Funniest moment: Alonso complaining about the light on Vettel’s car, it was very funny, because he was very upset about such a small thing
Most Surprising Result: How close the field was
Least Surprising Result: Vettel and Alonso on the podim
Special Mention to: Vettel, of course. It was impressive how he was able to dominate even with his problems
Race Rating: 7/10
World feed rating: 8/10. Good, I would have preferred seeing more action from Hulkenberg, especially at the end, when him and Rosberg were getting really close to Massa.24th August 2013, 13:41 at 1:41 pm #210294
What is the best grandstand for saturday? I was thinking at 6c (first chicane at the inside), 8b (outside of the first chicane) or Ascari. But I really don’t know what to choose.24th May 2013, 14:04 at 2:04 pm #135042
Well, my previous avatar was deleted a couple of days ago, I didn’t know where it was, so I changed it.
Now I’m using Nelson Tethers. He’s the main character in Puzzle Agent, a videogame. I’m not in love with it, it was an ok game. I don’t know why, but I started using him as an avatar a couple of years ago, and now I use this picture in every website I’m registered. I guess it has become my face on the internet :D17th May 2013, 16:45 at 4:45 pm #210242
Hi guys, I’m considering going to Monza this year. I live quite close to the track and I’ve never been there for a Formula 1 grand prix, that’s embarassing, I know. Actually my first time at the track was last month, to see Formula Renault 3.5.
I have a few questions:
For money reasons, I’m considering the general admission, the grandstands are quite expensive. What’s the best place? Where can I find a screen? Is it possible to understand what’s going on on track or you just see cars going around?12th May 2013, 9:45 at 9:45 am #236353
Ceccotto’s driving is unacceptable. I don’t understand how he is still allowed to race.28th April 2013, 13:35 at 1:35 pm #232662
It was way too wet, but there were no major accidents, well done to all the drivers.
Nato did a disaster at the start, it was a shame. But I have to say I was impressed with the drivers. The conditions were terrible, I was surprised they let them race, but we didn’t see any major accidents.
@tom-l Yeah, Nato spun off at the very first corner after the SC came in. He also joined the track when there were other cars passing.14th April 2013, 13:45 at 1:45 pm #231133
Vettel on Massa, no doubt. Special mention to Alonso and Massa on Hamilton.7th April 2013, 18:24 at 6:24 pm #211111
I saw the race from Ascari, it’s a shame that nothing happened there today. By the way, I love these cars. I saw both qualifying this morning and race 2, it’s been very entertaining.17th March 2013, 9:24 at 9:24 am #228726
Vettel on Sutil. It was a bit risky, but in the end it was a very strong manoeuvre.16th December 2012, 15:56 at 3:56 pm #214923
Grosjean improved quite a lot from yesterday. I’m very happy for him.15th December 2012, 16:21 at 4:21 pm #214916
First time for me as well and I have to say that it wasn’t bad. There were some interesting heats, but Team Germany ruined the show a little bit. They won every heat with huge gaps!29th November 2012, 18:54 at 6:54 pm #216667
1. Fernando Alonso: His best season so far, without a doubt. Very fast, consistent and he mad very few mistakes. He has been a little bit disappointing in qualifying in the last races, but his excellent starts and race pace allowed him to fight for podium even from P6 or P7.
2. Sebastian Vettel: He has done a fantastic season. Not as perfect as Alonso, though. He made a couple of costly mistakes, but he showed that he doesn’t lack anything. He is fast, he is able to overtake and he doesn’t get distracted by anything. Great drives in Abu Dhabi and Brazil, but I think that his four consecutive victories are the most impressive thing in such a crazy season.
3. Lewis Hamilton: Probably his best season. Very fast, as always, and very few mistakes, which is quite new for him. I think that sometimes he wasn’t impressive (Belgium, Suzuka, Australia) and his team mate did a much better job in those weekends.
4. Kimi Raikkonen: I’m very, very surprised by Kimi. I didn’t expect him to be so strong. His consistency is something amazing. To be honest Grosjean has been better than him in qualifying overall, and even in some races. I think that he lacked a little bit of aggression in wheel-to-wheel action, it seemed that he wanted to bring the car home regardless of the position. I still believe that he could have taken the lead in Bahrain.
5. Nico Hulkenberg: What a great comeback! I loved the guy in 2010, I was so disappointed that he ended up without a seat in 2011. He had a slow start of the season, but in the Asian rounds he proved that he is a much better driver than Di Resta. His speed and his consistency were really impressive. He is just behind Perez and ahead of Kobayashi in the standings. Considering that Sauber had a car capable of podiums in a lot of races, that’s a great achievement.
6. Michael Schumacher: His best season after his comeback, it’s disappointing that he has to leave now. He proved that he is still one of the best, but a lot of bad luck and some stupid mistakes costed him a lot of points. His pole in Monaco was just amazing.
7. Mark Webber: Solid season, even if he probably wanted more. As always, he has been very fast in Monaco and Silverstone, but he was nowhere near Vettel in many races. He was very competitive in qualifying, but his race pace hasn’t been brilliant compared to Vettel.
8. Romain Grosjean: Very welcome surprise. He has been better than Raikkonen in qualifying, but he failed to score points in many occasions. Sometimes not his fault, sometimes definitely his fault. If he learns from his mistakes, I think that he is going to be one of the protagonists of 2013.
9. Nico Rosberg: His victory in China and his second place in Monaco were definitely great drives. A part from those, he hasn’t been impressive. Still, I think it was a good, solid season. Can’t wait to see what he does next year.
10. Jenson Button: Disappointing season, I think that it was his worst in Mclaren. His gap to Lewis was frankly embarassing in some races and it took quite a while for him to recover. He had some very good races, though.
11. Felipe Massa: The first part of the season was awful. It was embarassing to watch him. He managed to recover very well in the second part, and he has been faster than Alonso in a couple of weekends, which is something that we have never seen since 2010.
12. Sergio Perez: His podiums were incredible, but a part from those he hasn’t been impressive. Too many mistakes in the closing rounds.
13. Pastor Maldonado: Overall a very good season for him. Not only for the win, but I think that he matured in the second part of the season. He has thrown away too many points, though.
14. Kamui Kobayashi: I loved his podium in Japan and his qualifying in Spa. A part from those events, I don’t think that he has been remarkable.
15. Paul Di Resta: Good first half of the season and great performance in Singapore. In the remaining part of the season he has been slower than Hulkenberg.
16. Jean-Eric Vergne: I feel a little bit bad to put the Toro Rosso pair so low, because the car probably didn’t help. JEV had a good race in Monaco and his race pace was very good compared to Ricciardo’s. He suffered qualifying too much.
17. Daniel Ricciardo: Some good performances in qualifying, but in the race JEV has been slightly better. It’s difficult to judge, really.
18. Heikki Kovalainen: Good season, again. Great race in Monaco, it was incredible to watch him fight like that. But he was not so brilliant against Petrov in the last part of the season.
19. Bruno Senna: Ok, sometimes his race pace was good and he has scored points in many occasions. I can’t help thinking that he underperformed, though. It’s true that he got a lot of 9th and 10th place, but Maldonado in the meanwhile was fighting for podiums and double digit points. He missed almost every FP1, but I don’t think it was such an obstacle, especially later in the season.
20. Vitaly Petrov: Well, I didn’t expect him to be so competitive with Kovalainen. He is a paydriver, but I have to admit that he doesn’t seem so bad.
21. Charles Pic: Great season. He has been quite close to Glock, and even faster sometimes. I was very happy when he was confirmed for Caterham, because his seat in Marussia was at risk.
22. Timo Glock: I think that he suffered a little bit too much against Pic. Nonetheless, he drove some amazing races. Singapore comes to my mind.
23. Pedro De La Rosa: Much better than Karthikeyan, and he challenged the Marussia guys sometimes.
24. Narain Karthikeyan: DLR was faster in qualifying sessions and in the races by quite some margin. Awful season.
