F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2015 - 9th

I'm actually positively surprised with the crash commentariat on this, IMO, well judged position for Bottas. I thought last year that he had quickly become the next overhyped Scandinavian driver, also knowing in the back of my mind that Bianchi had him covered in lower formulae and that we never got to see him go through GP2. Yes he won in GP3 but that was driving for the utterly dominant ART team and only just beating one of his teammates (english guy, can't remember but I believe he races GT's now). So now we've seen Massa keeping him very honest for two years after some abysmal years at Ferrari, I'm glad to see objective sensible minds prevail. He's a decent driver, definitely deserves a place in the F1 midfield and pretty consistent, but no world beater like Martin Brundle still wants us to believe.

F1 » Worst of 2015: Three into two doesn’t go at Sauber

The article is kind of written in a way that suggests vdG was at fault here, while in fact it was abundantly clear that it was an epic f-up by the team's management to put it mildly. I guess since vdG ultimately lost out on an F1 carreer through all of this we are now supposed to let history be written by the ones that 'survived'? On a side note I personally think they'd have been better served with vdG in one of their cars than with both of the drivers they have now. Nasr is consistent but not fast enough and Ericsson shows some pace sometimes (although judging by how he was doing vs Kobayashi and Lotterer last year it's probably more a case of Nasr being so slow he makes Ericsson look good) but can't get the points on the board. Not saying vdG is way better...but definitely a little bit better.

F1 » Haas F1 to share reserve driver with Ferrari?

KInd of makes sense. I'm sure the regular drivers don't mind not having another driver in the pitbox breathing down their necks, plus if he can de facto get Vergne as a reserve that's a pretty good option. Actually more or less a good sign, cause let's face it, a bunch of the less well funded teams only use the reserve drivers to get a couple extra million in. The fact that Haas apparently doesn't have to resort to that (yet) is a positive sign.

F1 » PDVSA plays down Maldonado axe rumours

Personally I'd be sad to see Pastor disappear from the grid and I don't much care to see Magnussen on the grid again. I think the former is one of few 'do or die' guys on the grid we could use more of and the latter quite frankly was pretty underwhelming compared to Jenson at McLaren. If they do axe Pastor, there'd be several more exciting options out there, for instance Stoffel Vandoorne or if they want some experience, JEV.

F1 » Verstappen ‘expecting a second per lap’ from Ferrari engine

I wouldn't doubt it if the Renault PU was to remain at the same level as last year, however, I suspect they'll make significant gains over this winter and the course of next year, either whithin the regulations or because the FIA looks the other way now and then to let Honda and Renault catch up (cause let's face it, F1 can ill afford to lose manufacturers which is the only outcome if the engine freeze is held up rigidly). So...bit of frustration from last year and wishful thinking for next year from Max I reckon.

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2015 - 7th

In favour of not getting JEV'd is the fact that right now, there aren't any young Red Bull talents knocking on the door hard enough to be in the conversation for an F1 drive. Gasly had an ok year, Dean Stoneman had a reasonable year in WSBR...Neither really set the world on fire though. We all know it can goo quickly sometimes at Red Bull but unless someone new does something really remarkable next year like win 3 consecutive races at Spa and follow it up by winning 3 consecutive races at the Norisring or something like that I would say Carlos' seat is safe for not only next year but also 2017. Not to mention Max might be moving up the ladder after 2016, so there is not necessarily a need for JEV-ing Carlos even if they want to give another talent a seat.
