F1 » Grosjean bags second Driver of the Day award

While in the back of my mind, I know this is essentially 90% the Ferrari, I agree with Richard in that, there are plenty of other factors that play into it. The team is new and still wet behind the ears. Yes the car is good, but a botched pit stop, a mechanic forgetting a wheel nut, etc can completely ruin a weekend's result no matter how good the car is. I am big fan of RG and I hope he will at least be able to snag a win before his career is over. I do not think he will get a WDC, but he can prove to be a very solid #2. Maybe when KR leaves he can fill in.

F1 » Sainz expects repeat of Toro Rosso team orders furore

I like both of them, but Max is showing his youth with all the outbursts. Carlos is not in debt to Max to let pass. The better will find a way to pass on the track and should not rely on team orders to boost him up the grid. Also since they are both in the same equipment, then that will really show who has the driver skills vs just having superior equipment. IMHO, I see Max being quite a handful to manage in the his future team.

F1 » Rossi returns to Manor as reserve driver

I am glad he has worked out this plan B. It is one thing to be a reserve driver, but he is going above in keeping his racing skills sharp with competitive racing. IndyCar is proving to be good racing and I think it is a good step for him from GP2. He will be no doubt ready to jump into the seat if the opportunity arises. If anything he can talk to JPM about the F1 environment.

F1 » Haas boss shrugs off simmering rival criticism

Agree with Richard. Good for Haas using the rules to his maximum advantage. All teams do this. It just so happens Haas found this possible prior to entry. Previous teams who entered, (HRT, Caterham...etc) choose not to do this. That is their decision. I think Haas will still fair well next year as they already are turning their attention to 2017. They have good people on staff, of note, Brundle said they have the ex-Lotus suspension guy from their 2012-2013 success years so their tire wear should be well managed.

F1 » Teams signal tentative approval for new qualifying format

I would like a legitimate reason why quali cannot go back to the previous format? Is there a legal binding contract somewhere that stats they cannot revert back until X time has passed? My humble idea. While I understand TV time plays a lot into the equation there are some remedies to this. Go back to previous 3 round knock out. Make each driver have to set 1 timed lap per 1/2 of the round. E.g. 20 min session, a driver has to put in 1 timed lap in the first 10 mins, and a 2nd timed lap in the last 10 mins. The fasts time of the 2 moves people on to the next round. This would ensure fast laps, and also prevent empty track time. The teams can complain about tires all they want, but if everyone is subject to the same rules, it does not really matter.

F1 » 'Absolutely no problem with Max' - Sainz insists

While I think Max is a stronger driver than Carlos, in the end it is his job to pass Carlos. It is not Carlos' job to let Max through just because he is crying about it on the radio. I think Carlos is totally within his right to keep his line. If Max was faster he would have passed Carlos but did not. Both are good and will do well in the future of F1. Max needs to stop complaining to the team and just drive. The rest will sort itself out.

F1 » Raikkonen: Why should I be worried?

Actually KR is smart for the way he plays with the media circus. His cool, nonchalant counter personality of other drivers demeanor is what has won him legions of fans. If he spoke to the press like JB, SV, or FA he would be just another driver in the lot. While he has not stood up against his teammates in terms of performance, Ferrari obviously find him worth the $ they are paying him or else they would cut him already. He knows he does not have to be the best, SV fills that role in the team. He just needs to be best option of what is available for Ferrari to sign.
