F1 » Lauda: ‘Alarm bells are ringing’


of course, i, (and most others) will have a partiality towards a driver who has signs of being good, and negativity towards a driver who is poor or performs below what they are capable of. that is called OPINION. when dr was in lower formulae, i did have high hopes for him, but just because i do not rate him as a possible wdc , i have to be subjected to a certain amount of abuse from some of his compatriots? my point is that jev was as good whilst with str. that does not mean that i think jev would be wdc either, but just that he is equally deserving to be considered as at the same level as dr. so, if you think that dr is a potential wdc, then you also have to accept that jev is also a potential wdc! as is kvyat, magnussen, bottas etc...........................in fact, one of these last three probably WILL win the wdc in future years.

Googolplex:
bob jane: Richard you know because of vergne's poor quali in the torro had them on diff strats for the races and Dan ran out of tires...But Lol You are winding me up, l know you know enough about f1 to know your vergne/ Dan comparision does not hold water.
Sorry Bob, but Richard is serious and you will not sway him from his favourites.
its not a case of "favourites" . it is a matter of assessing a drivers ability. dan qualified better in str, but vergne out raced him, but had bad luck with others taking him out or mechanical failures. if you listen to bbc or sky pundits, they all say the same...vergne was equal to or better than dan, and some of these are ex f1 drivers who know a little about the sport. you dont like me stating the obvious? fine, but dont let nationalistic fervour cloud your judgement!

bob. there is actually no imbalance! lulu was brought in at a high cost to try and give merc the wdc. at the time of his contract, nico was an underated driver, with a dog of a car. so it was pretty obvious that lulu would only be lured by a large pay packet. unfortunately he is not living up very well to his inflated salary, but nico is exceeding his. i am sure that nicos salary will be on a par with lulus when it comes up for revision. next your dan / seb comment. in case you missed some of the races, you will find that dan has had a reliable car for pretty well every race, whereas, seb has had constant faults hindering his progess. so to make any comparison at this stage is completely unrealistic. dont forget, when in str, vergne was the equal or better of ricciardo, so are you saying jev is well underpaid too? and button overpaid too? he is an ex wdc, kevin is a rookie. do you think that it is right to pay the two the same? dont forget, lulu had problems beating bu
