F1 » Alonso and Hamilton praise ‘fantastic’ Ricciardo


richard: pau1. i think that you are right. but to give him his dues, ricciardo did make an attempt at passing. however, lest w forget, seb outqualified him, and was ahead in the race until he made an error and spun, hitting the wall. after that, he was driving a damaged car with squiffy suspension, and to give seb his dues, he even told the team that he would continue and try to redeem something from his error. it was obvious that he was struggling for speed. look at the way that kimi was able to pull away! ricciardo was lucky, but he seized the opportunity and he earned the win, far more than lulu earned third!
Richard you failed to mention that DR was "unlucky" when the 2nd safety car was called and he was 6secs down the road from the field and increasing his lead...lets keep things in perspective..........but l think SEb is coming he has been on it the last couple of races

F1 » Ricciardo ‘riding crest of a confidence wave’


sky1: 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.
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.....

F1 » Ricciardo wins Hungarian thriller


richard: good drive by ricciardo. he earned that win on merit, rather than benefiting from others misfortunes. lulu also drove a good race, even if he was helped by sc and by disobeying team orders. but in his defence, nico was nowhere near enough to demand being let through. and nico was not penalised for pushing bottas off the track. why not? drive of the day was undoubtedly ferdi. vettel made a rare mistake but drove a car with deranged suspension to not lose too many places. but nice to see that merc have been pegged back a bit. three different cars and engines in the first three. maybe the new regs are starting to work?
l am impressed Richard, l think your above comments are fair and well balanced.

F1 » Ricciardo wins Hungarian thriller


beastinblack: To me, the most satisfying thing about this season is the downfall of Finger Boy. We are still waiting for him to win a car that's not the best, and his young Aussie team mate is embarrassing him. Not simply beaten but SPANKED. I am certainly enjoying it since it showed what many F1 fans have known all along. He was a pretty good driver in a stand out car, that allowed him to win WDCs. Where are those people who claimed that he could 'win' in 'any' car?
l would not write Seb off, he is a superstar...he seems to be coming to terms with the RB in the last few races..

F1 » Ricciardo wins Hungarian thriller


Firefly: Good win by Ricciardo but he got extremely lucky with the first SC. That won him the race, good strategy and driving to capitalize on it. This shows to me it's pretty obvious the tire rules are bullshit. Alonso and Rosberg didn't fit the medium tire during the race. Let them race any compound they want at any point in the race.
Dont totally agree with safety car comments, yes got lucky with the first and unlucky with the 2nd had to give a up a nice lead....for someone with lack of f1 front end experience ..his maturity is amazing.....FA is a god....He constantly continues to punch so far above his weight of his machinery in F1.
