F1 » Horner: We never thought Ricciardo would be this strong

The old saying goes: You're only as good as your last race. If I were in charge of Ferrari (which is highly unlikely as I have neither the aptitude or temperament to have any competence in that role) I'd be looking at the best drivers in the field. Alonso is doing brilliantly in what is a second rate car, so he stays. On form, Rosberg, Hamilton, Bottas and Ricciardo are doing the best, though Bottas and Ricciardo are both out classing far more experienced drivers, and would cost less than 1/10th the price. Not that Ferrari needs to worry about cash too much, but everyone loves a bargain. Personally, I'd like to see Bottas at Ferrari next year, rather than Ricciardo, I think those two could have some fantastic battles.

F1 » Ricciardo wants to experience Monza podium

richard: mustafur. clearly you have no idea of how a car is set up to suit a driver. webbers spin in korea was totally different. he was in a car set up for and by himself. and towards the end of the race, under no pressure, he just overcooked a corner, and paid the consequences. vettel was driving a car that had not been set up for him. and as soon as he started racing, the different set up caused him to go wider than expected. he held it and then coped for the rest of the race. and as for your silly name calling...i am by no means a "vettel fanboy", but i do analyse the performances of different drivers, and support some that others dont, as i see some talent. and if you look at my posts, you will see that i have defended lulu at times too. does that make me a lulu fanboy? or a massa fanboy, or a bianchi fanboy, or a nico fanboy...etc

F1 » Ricciardo: Until it’s mathematically over, it isn’t

He's just got to stay around the mark and be there if the Mercs fall down. It'll take a lot of luck, but his fellow countryman Steve Bradbury did the same thing in speed skating. Bradbury was about the 20th fastest guy int he olympics, but in his heat the top 5-6 guys all fell over on the last turn, and he skated into the final, then in the final he was coming stone motherless last, and every other single racer fell on their ****. He skated through and got an olympic gold because he stayed int he race rather than just quitting. It's not something I'd bet the house on, but they could get in each other's way a bit here, they could be held up in traffic there, or maybe Vettel could support his charge for a WDC in the way he was always complaining that Webber didn't... OK, that last one really would be a miracle.

F1 » Alonso and Hamilton praise ‘fantastic’ Ricciardo

LoveF1: Mustafur's argument is like looking at this one season and concluding that Alonso is a better driver than Kimi. Yes, he may have the slight edge overall, but we must never forget that Kimi suffered terrible reliability in his McLaren days and should be a 3 or possibly 4-time world champ! Describing Ric as the better driver about jumping on a convenient bandwagon! I bet the same people people weren't jumping up and down and saying that at the time he was announced as a Red Bull driver.
Yeah, they kinda were... How you fare against your teammate is how you are judged. It has always been that way. I don't think anyone claimed that Webber was a better driver than Vettel. On his day, he was in the same ballpark, but he was always hampered because of his size. He had around 15kg on Vettel, and that hurt him a lot. It's too early to compare Ricciardo and Vettel as career drivers, but ask yourself, did you ever think getting a guy in the other

F1 » Alonso and Hamilton praise ‘fantastic’ Ricciardo

LoveF1: Even using Mustafur's basic parameters, it's like saying Nico Rosberg has more points, therefore he is suddenly a better driver than Lewis Hamilton (after all these years) and handing him an asswhooping, doing a better job blah blah blah My point is even apart from past awesome achievements, let's wait and see where the season ends and then make comparisons! You cannot look at half of the season and therefore CONCLUDE that one of the drivers is better than the other! Have you never heard of drivers having "a strong 2nd half of the season"?? If Ricciardo has a DNF or two before the end of the season and Vettel catches up with that double points scenario, will Mustafur suddenly start admitting he was wrong that Ricciardo is a better driver? What then?
By the same argument, if Vettel and Ricciardo continue on current form and Ricciardo ends up a hundred points ahead, will you then admit that Vettel was outclassed this year by the better driver at the tim

F1 » Vettel: Only in England!

Russell13: Abit off topic I know but with all rbr's talk about having options of new engine suppliers could they be thinking of cosworth as sometime ago I heard they had been working on a v6, maybe a redbull buy out? Then they would have an engine source for other projects such as road cars and also its not too far from Milton Keynes either.
It depends on how sneaky they want to get. For example, they technically use Infiniti engines, which are made by Renault, but there would be no real reason why they couldn't use Nissan, Dacia or even Red Bull itself. They'd have ot have a separate manufacturing facility, (as I understand it) but they could register as a new engine supplier while building on the technology of the current Renault powerplant, neatly dodging the engine development freeze.
