F1 » Hamilton/Mercedes contract talks on hold

Gilles: @Richard, it is impossible to compare drivers from different eras. To question that Lewis hasn't driven saloons is just silly. How many other F1 drivers have driven saloons, I'll tell you, none of them unless they did on their way to F1. Clark was a fantastic driver but he did always have the best car. Was he better than Lewis, probably, was he better than Schumacher or Lauda or Prost or Senna? Who knows......
Correction - Clark did NOT always have the best car - witness the Lotus 30 & 40 (a 30 with 10 more mistakes) - he was about the only driver who could get any performance out of those. The 43, with the H-16 engine was not particularly good - but he managed the only win for both the car and that lump of an engine. Even when he did have the class of the field, he could disappear into the distance like no other - check the '67 Italian GP - probably his finest drive, and he finished only 3rd.

F1 » Raikkonen hopes for ‘welcome surprise’ at Monza

Absolutely nothing to do with this article, but as no other posts here, then hopefully will be seen. Sadly, Len Terry has died. His skills produced some of the best, AND most beautiful F1 cars to come into existence - witness the Lotus 33, the Indy winning 38 and the Eagle Weslake (maybe the most beautiful ever). Like Maurice Phillipe, he was responsible for putting Chapman's ideas and concepts into reality - no mean feat. Hopefully Crash will produce an appreciation of his life and career.

F1 » Hamilton/Mercedes contract talks on hold

But more importantly was his personality - his manner and bearing. granted times are different, but he had more professionalism and integrity in his little fingers than the likes of Hamilton will ever have. A certain J.M. Fangio assessed Clark, well after his untimely death, as being the best ever. That is good enough for me. NB - richard - as well as there being relatively few GP's per season, the danger factor is, sadly, all too relevant to him.

F1 » Button admits retirement is possible

superdowg316: If Button is removed from McLaren, I'd like to see him replace Massa at Williams. Button and Bottas, what a combination that would be!
Massa is on around $4m and Button is on $15m a year, So shy should they replace Massa because he still managed to put the Williams on Pole within half a season, compared to 1 Pole in 5 seasons at McLaren
Pole is worth zero points. Massa's race record this year does not, in any way, compare to Button's even though the Williams is a far better chassis - with the SAME engine, remember. Like many, I would like to see him return to Grove to finish F1 where he started.

F1 » Boullier admits driver uncertainty ‘uncomfortable’

Button needs to make his own arrangements now, if not already done. There's no reason to think next year's car will be any better than this year's. Personally, I would like to see him replace Massa at Williams - apart from the symmetry of ending his F1 career where he started, I feel he can still offer them his experience and speed to complement Bottas. Massa's performances this year have, sadly, been disappointing, some through no fault of his own admittedly. But nevertheless his time is, I feel, up.
