F1 » Alonso and Hamilton praise ‘fantastic’ Ricciardo


@Mustafur, You miss the point yet again. Using the abstract expression "superior" driver or "a better driver" at this stage of the season is a disingenuous argument. There are so many variables and permutations involved in any one race weekend, never mind an entire season! Technical/mechanical issues, safety cars, etc. I repeat, that even putting aside overall career achievements, the ONLY time you can make such a statement is at the end of the season, when we are able to examine both of their report cards, so to speak. That is why the team principals vote at the end of the season, not in the middle of it. Seb has won 4 WDCs. Fact. Seb won a race in the Torro Roso. Fact. Daniel never managed it. We both know this, but I have not even mentioned this in my debate with you because you will probably say...well....times were different then and Seb only won because it rained that day and he was lucky, etc.

F1 » Alonso and Hamilton praise ‘fantastic’ Ricciardo


Even using Mustafur's basic parameters, it's like saying Nico Rosberg has more points, therefore he is suddenly a better driver than Lewis Hamilton (after all these years) and handing him an asswhooping, doing a better job blah blah blah My point is even apart from past awesome achievements, let's wait and see where the season ends and then make comparisons! You cannot look at half of the season and therefore CONCLUDE that one of the drivers is better than the other! Have you never heard of drivers having "a strong 2nd half of the season"?? If Ricciardo has a DNF or two before the end of the season and Vettel catches up with that double points scenario, will Mustafur suddenly start admitting he was wrong that Ricciardo is a better driver? What then?

F1 » Alonso and Hamilton praise ‘fantastic’ Ricciardo


lol @ Mustafur. You have got to be joking, right?? The ONLY time you can describe Ricciardo as a better driver is AFTER he has emulated Vettel's achievements! When he has thrashed his teammate consistently and won 4 world titles at the very least! Hamilton has won one title, Button has done the same and so has Kimi. Some would say that at best, they are possibly close or as good as Vettel. And put Alonso in that category. For you to tell me that Ricciardo with 2 race wins to his name is a better driver than Vettel with 4 world titles is quite laughable. In fact, I will not continue this "debate" with you, no matter what you now respond with...

F1 » Hamilton: Usual rules didn’t apply


Silly and simplistic arguments still going on here....... Why did Nico not ask to be allowed through when they were battling wheel to wheel in Bahrain?? Or at ANY other time he's been in second place behind Hamilton? You are now telling us that Nico is practically begging to be allowed through to win a race?? Because he is......"cracking under the pressure" of the WDC??? You must really take all F1 fans for fools, if you expect us to believe that!!

F1 » Alonso and Hamilton praise ‘fantastic’ Ricciardo


I just don't get it....double standards...against someone that won 4 consecutive world titles... When Vettel was thrashing Webber, many said he wasn't really that good and it was because of the car and he was favoured by the team, and Webber had problems etc. Does the same theory not apply now?? I'm not anti Ricciardo, but is he not delivering an asswhooping to Vettel because of the car and because of Vettel's problems? If you respond by saying this is different and it's because he's a great driver, then I know you are just anti-Vettel :-)

Mustafur's argument is like looking at this one season and concluding that Alonso is a better driver than Kimi. Yes, he may have the slight edge overall, but we must never forget that Kimi suffered terrible reliability in his McLaren days and should be a 3 or possibly 4-time world champ! Describing Ric as the better driver now......talk about jumping on a convenient bandwagon! I bet the same people people weren't jumping up and down and saying that at the time he was announced as a Red Bull driver.

No doubt paparazzi will follow him around during this summer break. He should just say to them: the matter is closed. I have had my say, it's been discussed within the team and I have nothing more to add. Now I am on holiday, so please leave me alone. Then he should get on his jet and take off somewhere private and spend some quality time with his pussycat :-)

Those who are saying Lewis may leave Merc may have a point. It won't be because he is not a good driver or anything like that. It will be because his bosses are less likely to tolerate a Multi-21 type scenario where Vettel effectively gave his bosses the middle finger and told them where to go. He was their golden child and had won them many titles, so he could get away with it. Also, the earlier incidences of Lewis publicly berating the team over the radio (eg in Monaco) are not easily forgotten by a no-nonsense boss like Wolf, whereas Horner is more of a pussycat. I think this is the bigger point that 107 has been making about "team orders" in general. In terms of Sunday's race, I have been in many situations in my job where I have been "technically speaking" correct. But I have also made sure never to go into my boss' office to sneer and tell him "I told you so". In this instance, Lewis should limit his discussions to within the team, instead of going on about it in the press. This

F1 » Hamilton cost Rosberg win chance – Wolff


A team order is a team order is a team order.... It is a contradiction in terms, where you have some of the most ultra-competitive sportspeople in the world representing the same so-called "team"! When 2 drivers are fighting for the same title, what constitutes a good team order and what constitutes a bad team order? What is the point of having the power/authority to issue a team order, when the drivers can decide which ones to obey or disobey? Is it right for a team to order the drivers not to take each other out? Is a driver not justified to block his teammate or take his teammate out, if that denies his teammate championship points? Even if a different competitor team takes the prize? Must a driver not do "whatever it takes" to beat his teammate? I know the answers to most of these questions....but it's also fun playing devil's advocate :-)
