Only god knows what he would have done in a Newy blown diffuser car which would have handled a lot better than the 2014 Hybrids. Credit to Red Bull and their young driver programme, He and Vernge would be a good tussle in the RB10.

The Petro Mercs are clearly the dominant car in 2014 and any monkey and his banana could win on one but having Dai as a calm and thinking driver outsmarting the opposition is surely such an advantage in races where the right strategy are more important then pure speed and horsepower. Great performance from Dani and we Aussies are so proud of him even when the odds are down he comes through every time, that is the Aussie way.

Hope the hype and stardom and money( l am sure he will be a 10 Mill + driver in the next few years) doesn't do to Dan what it has done to Lewis, he like Lewis is having early success in F1 and very likely to keep sucecceding in F1.........please Dan don't go Hollywood and stay grounded and humble.

Dan's moves were quality but they were against cars which were tyre-less grip wise, even I could have passed Lewis and Alonso in a Red Bull with fresher tyres. Some people need to get real.

I doubt you could do 3 consecutive corners without spinning the car.

it's Hungary one of the hardest tracks to overtake with a car that has a massive power disadvanatage, Rosberg with a better car and even more tyre overlap couldn't do the same so its not as easy as you think.

Sky l don't think you could get the heat into the tyres or brakes to stay on the track , assuming you got the car off the grid...and this it not meant to disrespect to you....these drivers are super fit and super super mentally fit...(l raced old saloons at a snails pace compared to F1 for many years and mental fatigue was always my enemy) ...DAN after nearly 2 hours of racing " better tyres or not "pulls overtaking moves....this is very special skill...and why these guys are the worlds best....l have always found it astounding how these drivers keep their mental fitness for 2 hours.....
