Re: Ferrari Losing Out on Perez

Does anyone else suspect that this was Alonso's choice - or at least an open reference to the idea that Alonso has a No#1 status enshrined in his contract which Perez was unlikely to pay much heed to? It's bullshit like this that kinda wants me to believe Vettel has been signed at Ferrari for 2014....

And, he didn't finish equal in points last year, but how many points ahead? Against the most hyped, considered by many to be unbeatable, Lewis ?

Re: Insight: Pérez threat too much for Alonso...

That is right approach for Alonso to take. After being beaten by a rookie before, he can not risk to be beaten by another, not exactly a rookie, but a novice driver. im assuming the rookie you mentioned is Lewis? didn't they have the same exact points? Alonso was only behind via count-back. They di...

Re: Best car hidden due to drivers

I think Hindsight has shown that the 2007 and 2008 Ferraris were probably a bit more superior to the Mclarens than we thought at the time because LH and FA are both better than Massa and Raikkonens was pretty much matched by Massa over those 2 years. It's true, these Ferraris were rockets, maybe no...

Depends on how you define "fine". They will not shutter their doors or lay off half their employees. But after Senna left, they didn't win a championship for 5 years. After Hakkinen left, no championship for 8 years. If Lewis leaves, there is no one of his calibre avialable as a replaceme...
