F1 » Lauda casts fresh doubt on New Jersey race

My feelings on the tracks and locations aside, I'm getting a little sick of Niki Lauda shooting it mouth off at every available opportunity. I mean, what does he have to do with the organisers of the New Jersey GP? Of course he's going to be gushing about the opportunity for F1 to return to his home country. I'm with Marksman - there are other tracks that should, and probably would, be scrapped ahead of New Jersey. Before I get flamed, I recognise that Lauda is a legend of the sport. His feats as a driver are amongst the best in racing history. However, in the last few years he just... wont... shut... up... He seems to have to comment about everything and those comments are often outlandish.

F1 » Tost keen to hold on to Ricciardo

@twowheelsareenough - seriously champ, now you're just embarrassing yourself. Perez has not won a race. Vettel drove well for his maiden win, but it was largely due to the team gambling on switching to a wet set up after quali. If that race were dry, Vettel would certainly not have won. Ricciardo has done nothing better than Buemi or Algersuari, huh? How about 5 straight top ten qualifying performances? His race results are comparable - all three have a highest finishing position of 7th. As to Ricciardo vs Vergne - Ricciardo has been dudded by poor strategy calls on a number of occassions and while Vergne has been driving well, he is quite simply not as quick as Ricciardo. I doubt the team boss of the triple WCC would get that call wrong - he definitely thinks Ricciardo is the pick over Vergne. I've no idea why you think a win or pole position is required by either of the STR drivers to be promoted. You're deluded if you think that the STR8 is capable of being driven to pole positio

F1 » Horner narrows choice to Raikkonen and Ricciardo

Recipe for a great grid in 2014 in this fan's eyes- Red Bull - Webber retires, Ricciardo in. Ferrari - Massa retires with dignity, Kobayashi in. Lotus - Keeps Raikonnen, drops Grosjean like a sack of the proverbial, Hulkenberg in. Mercedes - get a grip (get it?) on tyre degradation, retain drivers. McLaren - get a competitive car, retain drivers. Force India - Mallya out, retain drivers. Williams - Maldonado out, ANYONE else in. Really, anyone will do. Algersuari, perhaps. Sauber - Don't care, just pay them! Susie Wolf, maybe. Just coz. Torro Rosso - Retain Vergne, check out da Costa. The rest - just not pay drivers with no real prospects of going further in F1. Pay drivers are ok, so long has they have the talent to back their purse - no more Maldonado situations, please.

F1 » Austrian Grand Prix to return to F1 fold

@Mark - an old track does not automatically equate to a good track. At least Monza has some chicanes and Parabolica - Red Bull Ring is all constant radius turns separated by straights. Similarly, a good race event does not necessarily mean a good track. Monaco is brilliant because of the location, atmosphere and sense of occasion, but the track is rubbish in terms of racing. Don't get me wrong, it's damn impressive watching an F1 car drive Monaco at full tilt, but the race itself is always a procession. I'll not have this Korea bashing, that track has already produced some great racing, particularly in sector 2. Agree completely on Bahrain, however. All I'm saying is that based purely on the layout and not having watched an Austrian GP, it looks like it will be a snooze-fest and I can't see the attraction. Please, feel free to politely explain otherwise.

F1 » Jordan: Red Bull will go for Ricciardo, not Raikkonen

@Mintox - "The experts know who is teh better driver, and they will make thier decision based on that." Hear, hear. Seems to be a pattern with @Richard that he believes he knows better/more than those actually in the sport. I can't see a triple World Constructors Champion team boss screwing up the assessment of which driver out of two in the same machine is better. Christian Horner, in consultation with Franz Tost, has the inside knowledge on this. Richard doesn't.

F1 » Austrian Grand Prix to return to F1 fold

What's with all the love for this track? I became an F1 fan after the last Austrian GP, so I've not seen any races there and I'm just looking at the track layout - it looks so freaking boring! There are only two left turns and the layout is straight, turn, straight, turn, straight, turn... there's no flowing section with a swift change of direction. No thanks...
