Re: So.... What's right with F1 ?

Broadcasting, midfield battles, safety, new tracks (some of them) and occasionally we do get a freak result which is enjoyable to see, like Perez getting a podium finish in Russia, Alonso getting that 5th place in Hungary, Grosjean's 3rd in Spa. F1 seems to be slowly, slowly moving towards social me...

Re: Ugliest Livery car to win the constructors world title?

Re: Is Rosberg 2014 Webber 2010?

This did cross my mind, but I think Nico's a different animal to Mark. Less temperamental, far more controlled. What worries me is if Nico starts questioning his positioning in the team, and begins to believe the team is favouring Lewis as the number one driver. Once he believes that the team are ba...

The only way I see signing Kimi on as being a mistake is if Ferrari were challenging for the title and him and Alonso were tripping over each other.

No, a warning was fine, yes he gained an advantage from cutting the chicane but it wasn't warranting of a penalty as it was pretty marginal. If he did it again, then yes a 5 second penalty would've been fair.

Very difficult to tell this season with how close the Mercs are.
