F1 » Six of the Best: Fernando Alonso wins


marius120: jjj i... "races"
Well I can't be classified as either a Hamilton or FA fan but my read on the 2007 situation is FA had the upper hand in the team (McLaren being one of the teams where the 1st/2nd driver hierarchy is not that prominent) at least for the first part of the year. Then Hamilton performed above expectation and maybe the balance shifted a bit in his favour. However you say now FA would beat Hamilton cause he'd be make even less mistakes than then, but remember Hamilton blew a 16 point lead during the last 2 races making mistakes...and that weren't his only mistakes that year. And then of course Tarso Marques also beat him in the end of the year standings at Minardi :D

F1 » Six of the Best: Fernando Alonso wins


I still think when the car is well sorted and the driver doesn't need to race around the intrinsic flaws of the car, a guy like Hamilton or Kimi (in his prime) would simply be quicker than FA. We've seen this in the past as well at McLaren 07 and even somewhat when Trulli was his teammate at Renault. He was another one of these guys that were very quick when everything worked fine and ran FA pretty close. A good amount of times he too was simply quicker than FA when he had everything sorted, but obviously he was too inconsistent and his level dropped through the floor when the confidence wasn't there, which was made even more painfully apparent by Alonso himself of course as probably his biggest strength is to have a very high base level of performance.

throttlemeister: There are...car faster and make it look better than it actually is.
Agreed...I do however see one potential problem in that FA's style is pretty aggressive in that he apparently really takes a car by the scruff of the neck and hustles it around a race track. It's one of the things that makes it quite hard for his teammates who generally prefer a smoother style and a car that's a bit happier to turn in and roll around corners with speed on its own to match him when the car is built around FA's input. But...what if that means and is one of the reasons for the car being built to his liking simply not being quick enough? I'm thinking like in the NBA, you can play an aggressive offence style called 'run the floor' and you can score a lot of points doing it and have a stat sheet like a superhero, but you'll never win the title, cause at one point there'll be a defensive team you can't score enough against and they'll beat you.

F1 » Hamilton credits Senna for driving style


I don't particularly like Lewis but also don't hate on him like many on here...however I don't get this constant need to be looked at as the new Senna. Especially now he's no longer required to be the McLaren robot, he needs to relax, just give up already and be Lewis Hamilton for a change instead of almost weirdly trying to be Senna or some wannabe R&B 'thug' etc.

F1 » Maldonado targeting top five in Spain


"after an impressive step forward in China" Really? Ok so Grosjean ran at the tailend of the top 10 for a bit...before he retired cause of another technical issue and Maldonado who was apparently running an older spec engine actually finished the race somewhere way behind the points scorers. Sad state of affairs if we have to hail that a big step forward for a team who managed to win two races on merit in the last 2 years. @FlyingICEMAN Not to be a jackass, but so far Kimi hasn't really ran in the top 5 yet this year so he should be fine. Don't get me wrong I do hope he does manage to pick up the pace and take the fight to FA but you'd have to say so far his performance has not been all that awesome.

F1 » Williams increases income by 25%


Wow Williams really hit the jackpot with Maldonado didn't they. Gave them a win, drove a crappy car for the best part of three years and then gave them enough money to finally make a halfway decent car again for the first time in almost a decade that Pastor himself is not in... Pastor on the other hand, the frustration must be immense paying all that cash, switching teams for even more cash and find himself in a crappy car again with the car he could be in for less coin miles in front. If Lotus don't make a miraculous recovery surely the frustration is going to boil over this year in an epic way.

F1 » Montoya not excited by F1


Like JPM says the nature of F1 is that it tends to lead to a dominant car for a certain period at a time and the drivers compete more indirectly to be in that car than directly on track and to be there it takes a set of skills beyond just driving fast. To me this and all the bleeding edge technical stuff makes it interesting and I'm content looking at 10 odd boring races per year to see a few good ones. F1 is not just a driver competition, or at least not exclusively...it never was and never should be.

F1 » de Silvestro gets first Sauber test


Hate to be a downer, but she's not going to be quick enough. Granted we've seen in the past that being quick in F1 and being quick in IndyCar aren't necessarily transferable skills both ways so in theory she could still be quicker in F1 than she is in IndyCar, but realistically, if Sato wins a bunch of races over there in a midfield team and she 'gets a 3rd'...it's not enough. It would have to be by some miracle that she's somehow quick in the F1 car. We'll have to wait for Beitske to improve in WSBR, she definitely has the racecraft judging by the Monza race but she needs to find a bit more pace as well.

F1 » de Silvestro gets first Sauber test


jo6pac:
JJJ: Hate to be....
I find your comment interesting in the fact she has never had winning race car to drive. In fact I think the last car was called Piggy or something like that. We won't know if she has the pace until she gets time in a 2014 F-1 car will we.
Apparently she was teammates with Tony Kanaan last year and I vaguely recall he won one of the races. He also had 3 more podiums. Of course we wont know for sure till she gets in the car, but like Mark Webber once said, F1 isn't a finishing school.
