Re: The Official PAUL DI RESTA Thread

Scots as people are just about the funniest nationality in the world, for every DC who has a great sense of humor there's a PDR, he probably is a good guy, just we never really saw it. His funny side anyway. The thing is it's a bit rich who he gets slagged from, most of the drivers have the charisma...

Re: Greatest talent to never get a top seat?

Jarno Trulli, amazing carting career and never had better than say the third best car on the grid in any given season in his 14 year career.

DC/Mclaren: Monaco 2001, jeez that one hurt the heart, he was on the best form of his career and had been brilliant in qualifying only for the Mclaren anti stall to set in and set up the 43 laps behind Bernoldi :-((

Re: Drivers comment about "Alonso vs Vettel"

If they were down the field fighting for 8th race after race in a Sauber then I would favour Alonso, otherwise I would go for Vettel every time, for me he's simply just faster. Possibly at his best by a couple of tenths.

Re: Dario Franchitti retires on medical advice

An IRL great, was more than good enough for F1, just a shame he didn't get his break. I love DC but he had more talent for sure and could have one of the best Scottish drivers ever=one of the better drivers in F1. At least he will retire with his health and loved by many.

Re: Webber's current qualifying form

Webber was always a great qualifier from his Jaguar days in 2003 but he has been Vettels team mate for 5 seasons now and frankly been butchered year after year in quali so i'm sure it's more than just setup between them.

Most likely it'll be Vergne. Di Resta, yeah.... possible, appeals to the British market, but is being out-performed by Sutil, however this is concealed by what is awful string of bad luck for Sutil so far this year. How do you work that one out? At no point this season has Sutil been genuinely quic...

Yes, at Force India. The Hulk, I believe, is a shoe-in at Ferrari. His quali today has really helped his chances, out qualifying Massa and PDR I doubt Hulkenburg beating Di Resta by half a tenth (due to PDR hitting traffic in S2) will sway Ferrari's decision much. I reckon it will already be a done...

Not much else Paul can do tbh, he is driving the 8th best car on the grid so those mentioning him having to get on the podium or qualify on the front row are out of their mind. You could have Schumacher in his prime and he couldn't do it, Perez drives a car which is great on it's tyres so he shows i...

Massa fluking an 8th place after qualifying 13th (8 places below his teamate) is more impressive than the four guys who ran at the front all race? the top 4 ran over a second faster than pretty much anyone else in the final stint.

I think Williams will go pretty well, it's hard to look past Mclaren and Redbull though. Sauber and Williams for example have an excellent car aero wise but lack top end speed towards the end of the lap so could spring a surprise, out of interest how many teams are still developing their car?
