F1 » Ricciardo targets Williams, Ferrari with RBR upgrades

Sunny, He's just a trying to keep positive, unlike some drivers who drop their head and start throwing their toys out of the pram. Sure, physiologically he has a big smiley mouth, but it's what is underneath the skin that counts. I really don't know why you dislike him so much. He hasn't been offensive or behaved in a manner that might bring F1 into disrepute. Anyway, hope all is going well with you.

F1 » Ricciardo: It’s not just Renault…

Not sure where you got that from Rich. Helmut Marko was saying just the other day that Daniel is the equal of Seb in what he can bring to the team, but the team needed to give him the right equipment. Another bit of news for the anti Aus brigade, Webber and Seb are good mates nowadays and spent most of the flight out of Australia engrossed in conversation.

F1 » Ferrari doesn’t need Hamilton, hints at Bottas

George Zaidan: why Hamilton would want to move from a sure thing makes no sense. he has a better chance of breaking records with Mercedes than any where else at least for the next two years. I know the speculation is running rampant because of his new yet unsigned contract but I'm sure it has to do with something personal, I doubt that it has anything to do with him wanting to move to Ferrari. Kimi is staying put at least until 2016 then it's Bottas in 2017 that will probably take his seat as the speculation suggests.
I agree with you on this one George. BTW, you seem to have had a meteoric rise in the ratings and have succeeded in doing a job on me.

F1 » Ricciardo: It’s not just Renault…

WadeAus: You can't kick out a driver one year after he absolutely smashed his 4 time world champion team mate. Even if Ricciardo isn't performing at his best, drivers have slumps. Was Vettel going to be kicked out last year if he hadn't left first? I'm guessing that Red Bull just don't want to admit that Torro Rosso has a better car than theirs. Also, Ricciardo has 25 points while the nearest Torro Rosso driver in the standings has 8. Kvyat though, fair enough.
If they can turn on Vettel then they can turn on the Colgate Kid. You are only as good as your last race, right?
When did they turn on Vettel ? He was the one that decided to leave.

F1 » Ricciardo ‘no different’ despite Red Bull slump

H4tS2, One significant difference is that Dan does not have a car at the moment in which his team mate is able to get podiums and wins in. Seb simply didn't manage to mentally adjust to the sudden loss of competiveness last year and did not meet his own very high standards. I don't think that can be said of Dan this year, since there is no basis to suggest the car can do any better than what he has been achieving in it.

F1 » Hamilton still amazed by Senna comparison

Nuvolari, affectionately known as Nivola, was regarded as the greatest in his time. It was said that he had broken almost every bone in his body more than once and was often dug out of the remains of his vehicle with more or less gory injuries. He was spitting blood from tuberculosis at his last Mille Miglia in 1948 driving with one hand and using the other to hold a blood drenched rag over his mouth. It is just impossible to compare drivers of different eras because what made Nivola great then, namely his sheer toughness, extraordinary courage and gritted determination, is not readily transferable to the modern era. How could you ever compare the modern day pampered drivers who earn obscene amounts of money to someone like Nivola.

F1 » Danica Patrick not ruled out of Haas F1 plans

Apparently "Drivers who have competed in the IndyCar Series are eligible for a Super Licence if they finished within the first four places of the driver's championship. This allows drivers from the United States domestic series to move into Formula One without first taking part in other FIA sanctioned events. Under exceptional circumstances the FIA can award a Super Licence to a driver who does not meet the normal criteria if a vote reveals unanimous agreement by the members, and provided that the driver has completed 300 kilometers of testing at racing speeds in a current car."
