F1 » Massa dismisses Bottas team order qualms

I don't know whether it is always easy for a driver to think in the same calm logical fashion that us fans are able to do while sitting in our chairs at home (when he is doing 200mph and trying to drive the car like he stole it). I know I've also argued for the team cause in the past, but it's not always so easy, especially when you're also trying to become the No 1 in the team and also showcase yourself for bigger teams (eg. Ferrari) who are also possibly looking at Hulk as a replacement for Raikonnen next year. He's thinking: my teammate is ahead of me and I want to get past him, while I can, to go on and win the race. When the team says don't do it, his reaction was an understandable one, not "ok guys, no worries, I'll just slow down now to slow Lewis down". We all have the benefit of hindsight at home...not while doing such high speeds...I'm just saying.....

F1 » Raikkonen’s Ferrari future to be decided by Marchionne

What has not helped Kimi's case is the severe thrashing he got from Alonso last year...only to be followed by Seb's arrival and the thrashing he is now getting from Seb. He had his excuses last year..."ooh the car is not to my liking and it was designed for Alonso". This year's car has been designed around him and yet Seb is thrashing him. He is simply running out of excuses, for the amount of money Ferrari are paying him. He survived the recent clearout, but I felt then that he was already on borrowed time and Seb's arrival and consistent performance would test him to the limits. Remember also that he was once replaced by Ferrari in favour of Alonso, and paid handsomely to sit out the year. All of these factors have simply accumulated to the point where the management are not bothered about talking publicly regarding a possible replacement. Today's F1 is too costly and too fast-moving for all those regular excuses to wash anymore, especially with this new, no-nonsense management.

F1 » Hamilton wants 'to put on a show' in Austria

When one of the main protagonists in a series considered boring by many fans is the one making an announcement that he plans to put on a show by doing even more of the same thing.......... hmmm I'm not sure who advises Lewis, but they need to get him thinking a bit more before he makes these pronouncements and drawing unnecessary flak for it.... Having said that, it is his time to shine right now, courtesy of the car. It was Seb's a few years ago and he made the most of it. So you really can't blame Lewis....

F1 » Arrivabene: We have drivers that can jump into a Ferrari

The problem is that the rules as they are, will not even allow any exceptional young talent to really blossom to its full potential. Whether that's about having to save tyres during a race, or the severe lack of testing sessions for them to really hone whatever innate technical skills they may already possess...the list goes on... F1 seems keen on self-destructing one way or the other...or maybe I'm just in a downbeat mood these days, with the relatively poor "quality" that my beloved sport is serving me at the moment.

F1 » Arrivabene: We have drivers that can jump into a Ferrari

The irony is that they know and can see, within the Ferrari management, that the Mercs are technically ahead of their cars at the moment.....but they just need Kimi showing a bit more passion and snapping at their heels, forcing them into errors more...because they sense that the Merc drivers are psychologically fragile. Yes, both Lewis and Nico in their different ways.They want that to happen consistently and it doesn't appear that Kimi is doing it consistently...whereas Vettel's performance is generally consistently closer to what they are looking for in that department.

F1 » Renault F1 future to hinge on Mercedes leniency?

Seems to me that a few people are missing the point of this debate. Mercedes and their fans are still arguing like this....."it's not our fault that we got it right and we shouldn't be penalised for it. It's down to the rest to catch up with us". At this point in time, the argument has gone beyond that level! If fans turn away in their millions because of boredom, there will be no more sport to watch! The whole thing should not be reduced to a case of just a few diehards like us following the sport! Even the Mercedes board will cut off its F1 division if that happens! The F1 strategy group is like a giant ship full of people with competing interests, squabbling over who gets what, while all the time not realising or listening to the fans on the shore who are screaming and warning of the onrushing iceberg!!!

F1 » Arrivabene: We have drivers that can jump into a Ferrari

The pressure and relentless expectation on a driver sitting in a Ferrari is of a different kind. It is not simply a case of being fast. You could actually do more harm to the career of a young driver who has not been blooded, by sticking him in a Ferrari too soon. If ProfessorDave is right that Bottas would accept £2million, compared with Kimi's £20million, that is one hell of a bargain, even for Ferrari. He surely cannot perform to a lower standard than Kimi is currently performing. Just my 2 cents...
