F1 » Verstappen vigour goes unrewarded in Shanghai


MrJones85:
nymad: I would be very surprised if he is still in a Toro Rosso next year, actually. I hope that Renault engine gets a bit more reliable as he seems to be the only one providing much excitement at the moment. Not since Kimi in 2001 has anyone debuted as well, to be quite honest.
Really, how did Hamilton do in his debut? I have nothing against this kid but, people keep trying to anoint him before he's done anything.
On the flipside of Hamilton getting a podium on his debut, I seem to remember Kevin Magnussen doing the same thing last year. Did not seem to help his cause though. The point is Verstappen has not been all fireworks, but showing he has a huge talent, with a maturity beyond his years. The way he was hunting down and overtaking the guys ahead of him in China is what impressed, especially against the Saubers as they have a greater top speed.

F1 » Verstappen vigour goes unrewarded in Shanghai


Max you need a better car! Someone give him Maldonado's seat to see how he could do with a Mercedes engine!! Fairly sure he would not have spun it twice in the same race... Seriously though, he is impressing me a lot. It is nice to see some real talent coming through instead of just guys who can bring a lot of sponsor money. Kvyat was owned by him in China. Kvyat has a lot of talent too, but surely Red Bull are seriously looking at Verstappen. If they will still be around...

F1 » Verstappen vigour goes unrewarded in Shanghai


@ Goldenoldie: When I first heard he was coming into F1 as a 17 year old, I was a little shocked and thought it could be too early. As you say, though, in many sports sometimes someone comes through and breaks the mould. I remember a certain Boris Becker being extremely young and winning some tennis championships, and people were saying he was too young etc, and that it set a precident for younger guys to come through. It didn't in the end, he was/is just one of the special breed in his field! However, this probably would only happen in today's F1. The cars are certainly easier to drive than when I was 17, so the physical demands may have been too much for him. Luckily for him, that's when his dad gave it a shot!

F1 » Magic eighth win for Vettel with victory in Texas


Vettel is simply showing that as a racing driver, he is maturing more with each race. Yes I guess his engineer gets a bit twitchy when he ignores him as he wants the fastest lap (stats man, stats!) but there is no denying his class at the minute... Ok so the Red Bull is the fatsest car now, but he still has to perform. NigolT, I guess you have been on the Xbox recently?? I believe there is a little more to racing and constantly winning in an F1 car than just pushing a few buttons... Ask Button!
