F1 » Lotus keen to keep Grosjean


RG has proven he has the talent. With the reports that Pertronas and Merc engines are maybe coming in next year is promising, but as we see, Macca have the same engine as Williams and they are so far behind the ball. Also there was talk that Total (who is RG's main sponsor) will leave if the Petronas deal goes through. I don't see why that would be such a big problem since Lotus have 2 oil sponsors now. I digress. I think it all depends how reliant RG is on Total as to where he goes. Almost every team has a oil/gas sponsor and if a team can't have 2 oil sponsors (as I said above) we'll have to see who is willing to pay his way. Right now that seems slim.

F1 » Alonso praises ‘unbelievable’ Ricciardo


This was a great battle. I'm glad to see FA still showing he has the hunger and DR proving the faith put in him has been paid in spades. Well done DR, praise doesn't get much better than this. I don't get why people are calling him a rookie. To the senior RBR team yes he's new but not new to F1. He has 2.5 seasons under him so he's had time to hone his race craft which is a transferable skill no matter what car you're in.

F1 » Kate Walker: F1’s long road to recovery


On the older end of Gen Y/Millenials, Kate does hit a few good points. Since the financial collapse most of us have had to reassess our $ values. Lots are coming out with more school debt than ever with jobs that are not paying that well. Along with trying to make monthly bills, and if lucky, able to save up for retirement/vacation/house/car. Usually one of those has to give up as our generation sees the car as being the sacrificial lamb. Most Gen Y see the car as just something to get you from A to B. Cars depreciate in value, gas cost are/will rise, and most Gen Y live in metropolitan areas where a lot of time you're sitting in traffic and usually you can't go above 70-80 with out getting a ticket (at least here in the US). While I enjoy watching F1, I see it as a lifestyle for the multi-millionaires to have fun and the rest of us will never achieve that. It is seems to embody the excess that caused the financial crisis.

F1 » Rosberg signs “multi-year” Mercedes extension


I wonder what the details of the contract are. If it says equal treatment then good for him. I don't see why everyone thinks Lulu will leave. He currently is contracted until 2015. Until the foreseeable future Merc is the best seat at the moment for him past 2015. Ferrari will more than likely bring Bianchi once KR leaves and they have never expressed interest in Lulu. RBR are settled unless SV leaves. Williams would be possible but I doubt they would pay for his high slary. Macca are untested with Honda coming in. Really, Merc is his best option until the end of 2015 at least. Back to NR, I really want him to win the WDC. I also hope that Lulu is strong and competitive because no athlete wants to win a title against a weak or hampered opponent.

F1 » Kate Walker: The Kimi conundrum for Ferrari


I think it safe to say that no one questions Kimi's talent. Having the car built toward you means a lot, and when you go in knowing it's not, then you get disenchanted pretty quick. IMHO Kimi made the move back due to seeing the sinking ship of Lotus. He made the best of a bad situation. As for RG beating him in the latter of 2013...I know I wouldn't be driving that hard if I wasn't getting paid. Kimi knows he's good, but even better he knows everyone else knows he's good so Kimi doesn't have to prove anything to anyone.

F1 » Raikkonen expects to retire after 2015


Sad to see Kimi say this. His comments are priceless and will surely be missed. Kimi is no fool. He saw the sinking ship that was Lotus with all their $ worries end of 2013 and knew to jump. It just happen to be at the right time when Ferrari were giving Massa the boot. All the other top teams had confirmed their driver line up by then as well. With the start of 2014 being a crap shoot as to which time would be on top due all the technical regs, IMHO Kimi went for the biggest paycheck. Kimi is a racer not a stat chaser. He doesn't care about beating records or count how many WDCs he's won. Even though he's said he's retiring, IMHO, Kimi at 90% is better than others at 110%

F1 » Hamilton: I wish you could see the data


I'm glad Nico won. If anything Lulu is even a dirtier player, using an overboost engine map in Spain Nico wasn't allowed to and not telling him till after the fact. Truth is, Lulu is a dirty player who wants to win no matter how unfair he has to do it. This victory is justification for Nico. I'd let Lulu win the first 5 races of the year if it meant I could always win Monaco. To Lulu...karma sucks doesn't it!
