Re: When, and to where, will Ricciardo move? [A: 2019, Renau

But why did Renault offer Dan so much money? Surely they could have got him for less? They said they weren't interested in getting Alonso back until they could give him a decent car - so why are they paying top dollar for a driver now? In one swoop they've increased that to $25m a year. A 212% incr...

Re: Best overtakes in Monaco!

I'd be quite interested to hear your views on Senna and the number of incidents he was involved in. Possibly just another driver with subpar overtaking skills? A thug who made his overtakes work by fear and intimidation? Luckily, Ricciardo is nothing like that. He overcooks his favorite divebomb mo...

Sure, but wouldn't you think a driver of his calibre would refrain from doing that on live television until he has a chance to do just that. He just comes off looking like a bit of a sugarplum.

Vettels post race rant to Kyvat [MERGED]

Bizarre comments really. It was clean move. Didn't out brake himself, didn't run wide, didn't touch Vettel.

Kyvat's response was perfect - "that's racing"

Bit of a return to being a sook when things are going his way.
