Re: Hamilton to lose more by losing WDC than gain by winning

To date he has had 4 team-mates and only actually outright beaten one of them That's a rather... unbalanced way to frame it. One of those teammates was Fernando Alonso, possibly the best driver in the field , and Hamilton held his own against him despite being a rookie at the time. There s no way t...

Re: Is Vettel's rep gone for good?

Right now, though, Vettel's trouncing is much greater than Kimi's. And his reputation is being dealt a blow of an entire order of magnitude larger than Kimi's. Seriously? Vettel has scored 63% of Ricciardo's points. Raikkonen has scored 33% of Alonso's points I'm not sure if you meant being beaten ...

Re: Hamilton to lose more by losing WDC than gain by winning

Yep _ I agree that Lewis needs to win this to save any kind of credibility as a top driver. If he loses , it will knock him out mentally as well because he starts to think if such a massive car advantage and team support couldnt get him to win - what will !! It is a must win scenario for him. OT- Al...

This is the first actual new one. In Spain they went back to a test chassis. In Monza they used his original (refurbished) chassis.

Making it clear again. The reason Dan won each of the races was because the Mercs had incidents.

Re: Difference between avoidable collisions and racing incid

Every collision is avoidable - if you dont mount the challenge. So avoidable / unavoidable collision is irrelavant in racing.
Best way to avoid a collision is to simply NOT start a race!

Racing Incident is a collision with No Clear Fault (or rule breaks involved)
