F1 » Perez eyeing ‘big result’ to close best season


Hypoc: Since their chassis upgrade in Britain they are a step ahead of their mid-field competitors, he had some good results but he's not very consistent, his race in Brasil was an absolute joke.
That's always been the weird thing with Perez, When he's on it I reckon he is one of the best out there pacewise, but just when you think ok now he's on a roll...here comes a bogey race again. I'm a fan since his GP2 year when he was teammates with van der Garde who came off of winning the WSBR title and a pretty decent rookie GP2 year. As a Dutch racefan I followed that season closely since it was supposed to be Giedo's year, but at times Perez just crushed him with pace. Also back then, definitely not every race but the times he did the margin was such that you thought 'wow this guy is special, he'll learn the consistency and then he'll be really good'. But now a couple of years into his F1 carreer, still not really consistent.

F1 » Ron Dennis trying to block Red Bull-Honda deal


MrJones85: I guess Adrian Newey was right. Everybody feels threatened by RB. That's the price of winning. If it was Manor would Ron still feel the same way?
Think he still might. Fact is McLaren didn't really build a good chassis in 2013 and 2014. They were about equal to FI with the same engine and fought for P5 with them till the last race in both years. Any comparison with another team using the same engine is not in McLaren's interest right now. Even if it's Manor...what if they're not 2 seconds faster but only 1 or even less next year...Suddenly all the finger pointing at Honda and claiming the chassis is good is out of the window. Plus, Honda picks up a big part of the cheque at McLaren these days. Big sponsors are absent. Weirdly Honda is the best thing McLaren has going for them now. And ok they've got two decent drivers as well, but they'll be gone if the factory support goes.

F1 » Kvyat: F1 2015 has been a rollercoaster


Hypoc:
loltron: iron out the kinks and hopefully red bull can accommodate their fast pair of drivers with a fast car. out of the higher teams, i believe RBR have one of the best driver pairings.
Agree, the best pairing since Vettel/Webber, we could use another Webber, very likeable and friendly guy just not as good as the new kid on the block.
Well, we still have Kimi...

F1 » Rossi: Things looking very positive for 2016


ZEDX: Rossi certainly seems to be in the spotlight... Stevens & Mehri seem all but forgotten. I'm beginning to wonder if we will see those two racing next year.
Mehri is quite unlikely. Not enough coin and not enough pace to make up for it. Stevens and Rossi have a good chance, but I still think that despite the earlier claims to the contrary Mercedes may have a say in things in which case Wehrlein seems like the most obvious choice for one of the seats.

F1 » Esteban Gutierrez secures second Haas F1 seat


Bit of a lost seat to me now...would have much rather seen Vergne or even Magnussen although I'm not really sold on the latter either. In his two years in F1 both Hulkenberg and Sutil have basically ran circles around him. Grosjean will be thrilled though...his chances of landing a Ferrari drive for 2017 have just shot up immensely cause next year he'll look like a winner compared to Esteban for sure.

F1 » Horner admits Ferrari veto ‘works both ways’


This proposed 3rd party engine could never be allowed to win a championship anyway. At that point the manufacturers in F1 would have no reason to spend the cash for their own engines anymore and wouldn't really have a reason to stay in F1. Think back to when STR used ye olde restricted V10 in their first year...surely that could have been quicker than the V8s, but then the other teams who did manage to 'play by the rules' would have been seriously miffed, so it had to be downtuned so they could only challenge for minor points at best. This kind of engine would only be good for some of the backmarker teams who are resigned to run at the lower end of the field anyway. Kind of like the Cossie that Virgin, Lotus and HRT used when the number of cars on the grid dwindled a bit too much.

F1 » Ricciardo: Interlagos doesn’t do it for me...


someone: After collecting more points than Vettel he must have thought he's the greatest, but now he trails his new rookie teammate, oh well...
Well not technically a rookie teammate, it's his 2nd year in F1. I still think that at times you can see the talent shine through though, but at the same time it's also clear he's not superman. More than anything though, to me that just puts Vettel's performance in perspective and subsequently Kimi's. Although it's guaranteed to yield me about 50 disagrees one has to wonder what Ferrari could have done with Ricciardo and Seb this year or Ricciardo and Kvyat. Granted, Merc would likely still have won it but I reckon Ferrari would have won an extra race or two.

F1 » Raikkonen owns up as Arrivabene praises determination


I also enjoyed seeing how Kimi tried to break free of the advertisement board...but that said it's sad to see his performance level these days, not necessarily this race but in general over the last two years. I know that as usual this will get a ton of dislikes because we can't say anything negative about the Kimi, much like we couldn't say Michael Schumacher got demolished by Rosberg over the three years they were teammates despite what the numbers say, but having been (and still being to some extent) a fan myself and wanting him to do well...can't deny the hard facts that it's pretty much over. Ferrari need someone in the other car that at least qualifies and finishes in front of Vettel say 30% of the time even if Vettel doesn't want it. Actually seeing as though Vettel isn't exactly unbeatable himself (ricciardo) maybe it should be more than 30%. As for Kimi who has always relied on talent to do well instead of working hard with the team et cetera, seems like time has eroded it.
