F1 » HRT expects to stick with Cosworth

Elijah - Results are vital, but with such a large gap to close in, it will take a while. However, have a look at their pace, it certainly has improved this year and I would say they are sticking to the promise they made! First race of the year and they couldn't qualify, now they are out-qualifying and out-racing Maurussia whilst also qualifying within 105% of the Pole mans time! Considering for the past 2 years they have been struggling to get off the back of the grid, I'd call that a good improvement! Now they have a 1.5 second gap to close in on Caterham/Toro Rosso. They are making improvements, small but steady and if you look at the larger picture and how small the team is - they are doing alright, they are getting more sponsors onboard so they are becoming more financially stable too :)

F1 » Vettel tipped to win British GP

@ nikisan: Actually... it was very 50/50 as to who thought who was to blame about the crash. Read Taipan's comment on the race results and you'll see he had something silly like 150 likes and 150 dislikes. Several other forums also thought Hamilton could have done more to avoid the accident (including myself) as he should have known better than that considering a) he has a championship to fight for b) he was against Maldonado. Eitherway that arguement is over and done with now - back on subject, it would be hard to see anyone else apart from Vettel win at Silverstone unless his Red Bull packs up again!

F1 » European Grand Prix, Valencia - Race results [UPDATED]

What a fantastic race that was! Renault cost two of their teams the chance of the win due to alternator failure! A race track that you can't pass on - 11th place on the grid to first... not bad! Going to play Devils advocate here... Hamilton was very aggressive with his defending (his moves on Raikonnen the lap before could be deemed questionable) but Maldonado - as expected, was also very aggressive. Who do I think was at fault for the crash? Personally, I'd say both... Hamilton was too defensive and Maldonado was too aggressive - to me, it looked like Hamilton put Maldonado off the road as Maldonado was beside Hamilton going into the corner and so as Bob says, poetic justice on Hamilton's side i.e. he got what he deserved for doing such drastic moves, however Maldonado should have backed off as there was no road left for him to use - but he didn't and as you can see from the onboard footage, got beached on the curb and so couldn't turn left. They were both as bad as each other

F1 » Webber urged to join Ferrari

To be honest, I'm not sure where Webber would fit anymore, he is 36 - entering his twilight years and I doubt he will ever get a chance to mount a title challenge again (famous last words). I don't see Webber's bluntness working well with Ferrari as that was an issue with Raikonnen. I say Webber should pack up whilst he is still on top and mixing it with the leaders and return to LMES - rekindle a "flipping" good career there :P

F1 » Whitmarsh happy with Hamilton frustration

Ergh.... I'm getting sick and tierd of listening to McLaren say they love his personality and how they love his driving - Lewis hasn't learned from his mistakes and McLaren have lost their way in how to keep Hamilton on form. On a sky interview, Whitmarsh was blaming the engineer for Hamilton's "poor start" (which in comparison to Webber and Grojsian - wasn't that bad)... when will there be an incident involving Hamilton that is just down to driver error?

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year vote: 6th

Much better year from Schui, he seemed more comfortable - was beginning to understand the tyres and his race strategies were reminisant of his Ferrari days. He was never a fantastic qualifier anyway so I doubt the qualifying performance is a major issue, if he is at least on par with Rosberg there (i.e 1 place behind on the grid) then I think his race-craft will be better too, ultimately he made the most passes this year with some fantastic starts - Spa, 24-5th was probably his best drive of the season! Compared to other comebacks, his has at least not been a total failure and hopefully 2012 will see him beeting Rosberg and stop making those clumsey mistakes! Instead, more strategic cleverness, more racecraft and more of those moves that made schuy what he is known for, pushing to the limit of just about everything!
