F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2015 - 4th

He's only rated this highly because his best spell of form came towards the end of the season. Happy this time mods? Ironically, that actually makes it less impressive because aside from Russia, his strong finish consisted of the season's least important grands prix. If he is still getting the better of Hamilton regularly next season it will bode well for the spectacle, but would also come as a surprise.

F1 » Ricciardo praises Kvyat for season turnaround

MrQwerty: If Kvyat drives as well as last year I don't think Ricciardo has much to worry about, at least not from his teammate.
Would that be his teammate who, with one extra race start, finished behind him in points?
Yup. The same teammate who was outperformed on a consistent basis with a handful of exceptions, most notably Canada, Britain and Mexico. I do expect Kvyat to close the performance gap next year though. As for the points, I expect that particular situation to be reversed but there are all sorts of extenuating circumstances involved.

F1 » Raikkonen laments predictable Tilke venues

That's true but the complaints about the tracks are still valid even if they are misdirected at Tilke rather than the powers that commission him. Likewise, it's not really that important that it is Kimi making these comments, because he is one of a number of people to have such complaints and there is nothing particularly unique about his individual viewpoint.

F1 » Raikkonen laments predictable Tilke venues

The overtaking difficulties were at least as pronounced at Imola as any Tilke venue. Likewise, Monaco and Barcelona show that Tilkedromes are not the only venues where good on-track racing has been scarce over the years. But they all have a character to them which most Tilke tracks lack. The excess of slow corners, and the stupidly long straights of China, Abu Dhabi, Korea, India etc. as well as the sheer width of the tracks means cars tend to look positively pedestrian there. Admittedly the impression of width is probably exacerbated by the huge run-off areas. You can't just blame one man of course. But I think the reason we keep ending up with tracks with these widely disliked features must be addressed if we want modern classic circuits.

MotoGP » Six of the best: MotoGP 2015

Yearby23: ZeFrenchAngle Some people consider 2004's Yamaha an underperforming bike but Rossi won how many races on it? I guess that's still an 'underperforming bike' though yeah? Rossi lost the title this year for 2 reasons, he didn't win enough races and he lost his head in Sepang.
No one seriously considers the 2004 M1 to be an underperforming bike that year, absolute best bike that year probably not but underperforming definitively not
Agreed. The Ducati, now that was an underperforming bike that year.
