F1 » Horner: Vettel has his mojo back


Now people are saying Sebby has a shot at monaco...I'm not buying it. The Mercs will still be good there and Seb never really was exceptional at Monaco...yes he won it once with a bit of luck as the red flag allowed him to switch his aging tyres that would have left him a sitting duck otherwise but even Mark was usually better there. As for Hamilton wanting more competition, genuine or not it may actually help him cause if Rosberg is going to win this championship it's by consistency. Hamilton is probably going to win more races but he is also prone to doing something stupid or break the car and score a big ol' doughnut in a few races every year, while Rosberg will just cruise to finish in 2nd every race he can't win...unless all of a sudden there are two energy drinks in his way. looking forward to Monty, even if odds are it'll be a snoozer with whatever silver car p1 at corner 1 in front and the other behind and not able to overtake even if it is quicker 'round the tortuous streets

F1 » Maldonado dreaming of Monaco podium


Well he kinda deserves the bad comments on his performance this year in particular and 'accident prone' style in general, but the thing with Maldonado is...if he does have his weekend he can suddenly get a crazy result. He is pretty quick around Monaco having won there in WSBR and GP2 plus the Renault engine should be at a decreased disadvantage there so who knows...Of course if both Mercs and both RBRs finish normally that'll be the first 4 places sorted but it is Monaco and stranger things have happened. It's actually a shame that he can't seem to get his attitude sorted cause the raw speed is there...I agree though that after 4 years of GP2 and 3 full years of F1 still making the judgement errors he's making should mean he's out of a seat but of course the cash makes him almost untouchable, which is probably part of the problem.

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.

As for Webber, Horner stated multiple times that the team regarded Sebby as its future and that it therefore was only logical that he got the most attention. We don't even need to talk about where Helmut's allegience was at. I also seem to recall a certain wing incident. Yes, I'm sure Sebby was better than Mark especially in the end but the team was definitely on his side. Now the situation with DR is different. He's younger than Sebby and Seb might be on his way to the red team, so who's the future for Red Bull now? Either one will do really...both are equally marketable rb creations (although I still maintain in Seb's case BMW should get the credit for his 'education'), but I'm sure DR for now will be more willing to take a bit less money and work very hard than the arrived 4 time champ. Wouldn't be bad at all for RBR if DR beats Vettel when you think about it huh?

jesse:
Mark : Testing can only take place with one car per team at FIA-approved sites and...
That is surely not the answer. Alonso's chassis could have been fitted as well...
Still don't understand why it'd be a disadvantage to Kimi to have his chassis used in the test, unless you'd actually consider the not completely impossible yet still rather farfetched possibility of FA sabotaging the thing. In the end if I understand it correctly, they actually found a flaw with Kimi's chassis (so FA maybe even noticed this himslef and didn't think hey let's shut up about it and let Kimi figure it out himself), only ran one day and made a new chassis for Kimi! And...IIRC again, the next test Kimi is scheduled to be in the car (although maybe considering the results and the lack of running at test one they might also let FA run). Not saying FA isn't treated like the nr1 but the conspiracy is rediculous IMO.

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.
