Re: Will Ricciardo end up F1's right place wrong time guy?

I don't think Red Bull is going to win WDC this season anyway. He joined Renault to win WDC not to just score more podiums. It might take some time, but Renault has as much money as Red Bull. Ricciardo won 2 races last year, even race wins have no value? As for the money side, no the Renault F1 tea...

No I don't think so. The most that could be said would be that Vettel may have had to overdrive the car if he felt it was missing that final bit of speed, but even so that's still down to the driver making the best of it.

Re: Which team will be the fourth ‘Hybrid Era’ winner?

It looks like it's going to be Renault. They have everything to make it happen. Maybe not this year, but next year it should be quite possible. Of course history knows many examples of teams that failed to deliver.

Re: RIP Sauber name in F1

In this sense you have to give credit to BMW. It was their actual factory team, but they kept Sauber in the name during their years of the partnership. This is purely a marketing exercise for Alfa Romeo, to be Ferrari's Toro Rossi, yet they are scrapping the Sauber legacy in the process. I thought ...

Surprised to not see a thread on this, but it is the quiet season. With Sauber gone, it's the final of the 90s medium sized privateer teams to disappear from the grid. Although with 26 seasons in the sport, that means they lasted twice as long as the Jordan name did. Where exactly are they going? A...

It was Mattiacci who signed Vettel away from Red Bull, and he was the one who signed James Allison... I think it's debatable how good either of these moves were. Vettel isn't an upgrade on Alonso, and the car didn't really start moving forward dramatically until Allison had left - and since it's co...

Run offs.

You can put spectators inside the oval. Or around it just a bit further away on some pillars so there is plenty space for run offs.

Dan just had enough. He is bringing more points to the team and despite that he was going to get paycut while his teammate got lucrative contract. Renault is very serious about F1, I believe in 2 years it can challenge for wins on regular basis.
