F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2014: 1st


LoveF1: Some people are claiming that Dan did the best he could with the equipment he had at his disposal. But so did Lewis!
Love Lulu ( I quite like that name) Lulu didn't make the most of what was possible with the equipment he had, read my previous post, 19 poles and 17 wins were possible for a driver at the top of their game in the WO5 Lulu got no where near what was possible. That has nothing to do with loving him, hating him or wanting to mate with him, it's just a fact.

Fullofit: If there was an award for getting a prediction horribly wrong, I'd have won that award hands down. However, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Dan drive his way to this award and making me eat my words. He was epic and a breath of fresh air with his attitude. Well done!
I think we would have shared the award mate, I didn't think Dan stood a chance against Seb, in fact I wasn't fully convinced that he deserved the RBR seat.But I don't mind being proved wrong. Vegas, what Lulu haters are claiming that Dan beat Seb by default? I've had my fair share of beer and sparkly stuff but you must really be hitting the Christmas bottle because you're seeing things!

Maybe we can make this result easier for the fanboys to comprehend.... Dan out drove and out qualified his team mate, a 4 time reining champion, Lulu didn't. There were 3 races that Dan could possibly win and he won them all. Dan could not have done any better. Lulu had a car capable of taking 19 pole positions, he managed 7. After breakdowns Lulu had a car capable of winning 17 races, he managed 11. So Lulu could have done a lot better, there lies the difference. Comprende?

Thewayitis: I truly believe this award is not merited! If Ricciardo had been constantly in the reckoning yes, but he had a fleeting few races in which he inherited wins rather than making them....
Don't talk nonsense. Without reliability issues it was completely impossible for anyone other than the Merc pair to win a race given their cars dominance. Dan got himself in the right place at the right time to capitalise on Merc's misfortune not once but 3 times, no other driver on the grid managed to do that once. All that Lulu and Nico did was race each other, no one else was involved and after Spa Nico seemed to get the hint that he wasn't allowed to race Lulu anyway and in your book a massively dominant car and a neutered team mate make Lulu the driver of the year? Ha!

LoveF1:There were so many situations where Lewis could have put a foot wrong but didnt. He demonstrated his full maturity as a driver and claimed the championship with loads to spare at the end. The double points scenario could have thrown him in previous years but he held his nerve and grabbed the initiative from Rosberg on so many occasions in different races. then Lewis also definitely smashed Rosberg. No, Rosberg may not be a 4-time world champ, but he's no slouch and he WAS driving that Merc. Lewis can only destroy whichever teammate he is given and he did that convincingly.
Smashed Rosberg, destroyed Rosberg, won with loads to spare, really Love Rules? You do realise that if it had been Lulu's car that died at the last race Rosberg would have been champion? All Lulu did was narrowly beat a driver who's won very little in his time in F1 and never been rated as one of the best.

VegasRyder:Which is interesting because if u ask Richard or taipan or zaiden they will say he only beat vettel because of poor reliability and poor race strategy..... Hmmmm. But Lewis never gets an excuse when he doesn't beat his teammate.
Don't wrongly quote me, I voted Dan driver of the year because I think he was the driver of the year, Vettel's reliability issues play no part in that decision. As for excuses for Lulu, he and his worshipers seem to think he's the greatest driver ever so he should be able to beat drivers like Button and Rosberg easily without the need for excuses.
