F1 » Ricciardo ponders Kvyat development contribution


Aw, come on, Ric. It's just frustration talking. Red Bull has been on the decline since last year and no driver's feedback could ever help it get back to the top. The issue goes much deeper. Renault is in the midst of a crisis, Red Bull F1 Team has very little experience dealing with underprormance (look at Hamlet Marko going all Ferrari on the press), the other teams are unlikely to save the sinking Red Bull ship after it has been dominating 4 years straight vetoing most proposed car changes. Basically, all odds are against the Red Bull guys. I do feel sorry for Ric because he definitely has the racecraft to be a championship winner. On the other hand, I cannot help but gloom over Kvyat. It looks as though he is going to share the fate of Petrov. Came to an alleged top team, only to be forced into development with no real knowledge of the process. The lad didn't even get to show himself on the track.

F1 » Red Bull Juniors – where are they now?


Props to them for supporting all this young talent over the years, but I can't help but stay in two minds over the sheer number of participants. Do you guys think they went for the numbers to create an atmosphere of healthy competition, where only the best ones survive? Or were they simply willing to pick their characters from across the globe to have equal backing around the world?

F1 » Sergey Sirotkin: I don't feel any pressure


Well, it's hard to say what F1 is, really. If it's the drivers, then yes, one has to fight his way through lower formulae first to deserve a seat in the top tier for the sake of greater justice. If it's the spectators, then it's everything from sponsors to facilities on-track - drivers and teams are somewhere in between. For me, as a spectator - the more drivers on the grid are compatriots -the better because I have someone to cheer for. For the teams and the sponsors how the driver gets in isn't all that important - whether he pays his way in or it's the results that do the talking - a driver is but one detail in a huge mechanism. An F1 grid always has drivers who aren't great at what they do. But they still contribute to the sport.
