F1 » Raikkonen expected Ricciardo penalty


As I quoted on the Ricciardo thread, Kimi should remind himself of why he is in F1 in the first place by recalling what Ayrton said: 'if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver because we are competing, we are competing to win. And the main motivation to all of us is to compete for victory, it's not to come 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th. I race to win as long as I feel it's possible. Sometimes you get it wrong, sure, it's impossible to get it right all the time. But I race designed to win, as long as I feel I'm doing it right." Once upon a time we saw Kimi make these moves, that was why he excited us. Even if Ricciardo got it wrong, thank goodness he was prepared to give it a go.

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 » Ricciardo: I think the fans enjoyed Kimi pass


Let's remind ourselves of those great words of Ayrton Senna before grizzling every time someone takes a chance on a pass: 'if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver because we are competing, we are competing to win. And the main motivation to all of us is to compete for victory, it's not to come 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th. I race to win as long as I feel it's possible. Sometimes you get it wrong, sure, it's impossible to get it right all the time. But I race designed to win, as long as I feel I'm doing it right.'

F1 » Ricciardo: It’s not just Renault…


Mark
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 » 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."
