F1 » F1 Driver of the Year vote: 1st

While some follow when the subject is number one, others continue to follow ,regardless. Kimi has impressed people with his quiet confidence , clearly demonstrated when he held Sebastian at bay stating something along the lines of, I wasn't worried about him as I knew he couldn't get past. He came into F1 with exceptional talent and appears to have lost little if any of it. While I do not purport to know how it would turn out , in equal cars in any condition I would put my money on Kimi versus Sebastian. In fact if pressed I'd pick him over the majority of the current drivers including my favorite. No, I did not vote, nor do I agree with the results, but I see it as another poll whose value is the same as any other. Hope no-one is so depressed that they hurt themselves, as I am looking forward to seeing the usual suspects and their sometimes hilarious postings next season. Happy New Year to everyone including Crash Net staff.

F1 » Vettel: Enormous respect for Webber

Why is it hard to believe that Vettel has respect for Webber. Unlike the many keyboard pundits the drivers have a really good idea of the various abilities of their competitors as they know first hand what driving in F1 is like. I remember Brabham saying he began to accept that he had improved when he was able to match or keep up with Moss. I've always heard Vettel to refer to Hamilton with respect. Schumacher named Alonso, Vettel, Raikkonen,and Hamilton among the top four and also said that the tyres were preventing the fastest drivers from performing. Drivers are more astute than they are credited for being so I'm not surprised to see Vettel acknowledge and respect Webber for his contribution to the team and its cars.

F1 » Vettel wins Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

@ Jim Clausen, the bandwagon seems such a great place to be at any time. Seb once had a reputation for crashing into people as Mark would confirm so he's just like all the other champions, flawed in some small way. I do remember a certain Michael S and Ferrari being the perfect combination with the additional advantage of being a dream in the wet. Junior drivers in the olden days did not have a car, they merely rode in the backup car hoping the No 1 driver didn't need it. The times are different the drivers are different and if an edge is to be given it would be to the older drivers who had to brake,steer, everything on their own. Who warned Moss of an impending engine failure or flat tyre. Who kept weather information for Collins or Clark. Could you coax any of the present drivers to drive those old cars on the Nurburgring in the rain even if their insurance minders would allow it. The present time is exciting in many aspects but can be described as more about technology ......

F1 » Star of India Vettel crowned as champion

Why try to compare Vettel with Clark or any of the drivers from that or earlier eras. Clark and others like him paid for mistakes with their lives. Modern drivers often don't. Would Kubica, Shoemacher Hakinnen have survived their crashes in the 50's or 60's. Medical competence as well as track facilities,personnel are much more efficient and accomplished. How long would a Maldonado, Grosjean, Hamilton, Vettel have survived on the real Spa, Ring etc. Modern drivers are brilliant in their own way but not superior to the older guys in their times. Could Vettel have survived having to turn his car over to his more experienced team mate. Congrats to Red Bull, Vettel , Newey and Horner for a job well done as each had a hand in the result, and none was found wanting.
