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 » Montezemolo rings changes at Ferrari


I agree that if anyone is to be held responsible and has to go it's Luca. Stefano has now been offered up as the sacrificial lamb and replaced by another guy appointed by Luca, so surely if it doesn't translate in results once again (and I'm pessimistic about that) it's about time that Luca takes the blame himself for once. After all he also is a manager, not a team owner. If Ron wants to come back and take the reigns and make a bunch of questionable decisions that's ok cause it's (partly) his team and when it all comes crashing down ultimately he can't run away from the resposnsibility, simply because if the team goes down it's his grave. Luca OTOH...1975 is a long time ago.

F1 » Rossi gets Canada and US practice runs


Meh...he's good but not great judging by his GP2 and WSBR performances. He still could be a decent choice for Gene if Gene gets his team off the ground, but mostly cause the drivers won't be the limiting performance factors anyway. It's kinda like Chilton and Marussia, yes Chilton often runs around a second off of Bianchi's pace but when you're already the slowest team on the grid who cares...Just bring the money, bring the car home, don't do any damage and hope more than 10 guys retire including the Caterhams. That's pretty much their strategy with him. Rossi is more than capable to fullfill the same role for Gene...If he can bring the money that is.

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘F**k all to do with motivation’

rob01: At least he is being paid now.
not doing a very good job tho,
compared to who?
Alonso
Ah . . . compared to the most complete driver on the grid, are there any drivers on the grid who would do a better job?
The usual hater suspects won't like me saying this and I'm not even a fan myself but facts are there's actually a man on the grid who beat/equalled FA in the final standings when they were teammates. Little known fact is he was the 2nd man to do so after Tarso Marques did it in 2001 courtesy of 2 9th places in Brazil and Canada :D

F1 » Massa frustrated by luck at Williams


True...but I also think Massa shaking his head wasn't helping at all. You can call it latin temperament but also considering his radio messages this year, he needs to relax in that car a bit. He probably drives around with a bit of a chip on his shoulder trying to prove a point after years of less than great results at Ferrari, but pacewise he's actually doing fine compared to Bottas. I also understand there is a bit of pressure on the Williams drivers knowing they've got a good car for the moment and not sure how long that competitive edge will last, but if he just stops trying to force the issue maybe they can actually get a podium or two before everyone else catches up.

F1 » Horner plays down Vettel ‘team orders’ issue


Nikeros: I just love it when Karma bites the arrogant. What goes around comes around, Sebby (though you weren't lapped - what a pity). Only Mark Webber is laughing more than I am on this momentous occasion when justice smiled on Shanghai. Better 'luck' next time honey.
It's a bit of a mixed bag for Mark though, isn't it...He might not dislike the fact that Sebby is now experiencing the other side of the coin but at the same time the guy that beat him quite convincingly over the last few years is getting his backside handed to him by someone who wasn't exactly considered to be the next ultimate awesome. He can't laugh too hard, cause in comparison what does this say about him...

F1 » Button: This isn’t good enough


ThePaddock1: this is pathetic standards from one of the most resourced teams in f1, they really have to sort it out or it could be another season with no podium (not counting the one in aus through ricciardos dq) hamilton had the last laugh and new where he was heading to in 2014
Agreed but to be pedantic: Magnussen was on the podium in Melbourne even without the DR DQ, the DQ made it a double podium for them.

F1 » Button: This isn’t good enough


It definitely isn't good enough. Also must be said that after a very good debut Ron's new golden boy is kinda fading away into mediocre territory both pacewise and with a few incidents over these last few races. Said debut will yield him some goodwill that'll last him for some time but I'm predicting by the end of the year we'll have to conclude he's not an improvement over Perez.

F1 » Vettel: Daniel is doing a very good job


"He has not just had one good weekend but good weekends." And...there you have the direct comparison with MW after all. There were a couple occassions where Mark strung a perfect weekend together and was able to match Vettel, although last year this occurence became too rare. I'm sure Vettel is still brimming with confidence after 4 WDCs and of course the man is set for life financially so that's no consideration, but as a competitor he must be scratching his head at DR's performance and at some point the thought 'so will this be what it's going to be like' will enter his mind. He's pretty cool about it so far but we've seen the harsher side of his personality a couple times before so it'll be interesting to watch how he reacts when DR passes him for the lead, denying team orders and stating: "I was faster than him, I passed him, he didn't deserve to win...end of story"
