F1 » Maldonado: Williams close to real breakthrough


"Williams close to real breakthrough"... and then they hired Maldonado. One step forward with the car, then two steps back retaining the driver with the record for most driving penalties in a single season in the history of F1. What a sad day that sees Maldonado get a drive and the likes of Algersuari, Kobayashi and Barrichello (just to name a few) missing out.

F1 » Williams confirms F1 2013 driver line-up


@jimmy p - the legality or otherwise of that pass is not as clear as you suggest. The on board video shows Vettel passing a flashing yellow light board at both the start and end of the Reta Oposta straight, but it also shows what appears to be a marshal waiving a green flag on the inside of the track between those two light boards. Vettel made the pass between that marshal position (hard to see on the video as the marshal is obscured by a scafold tower) and the next light board. The claim is that the light boards were out of sync with the flag marshals. Also, Vettel apparently let Vergne back through after turn four as we was unsure of his pass, however I've not seen footage of this. I think Vettel will be fine.

F1 » Williams confirms F1 2013 driver line-up


I'm much, MUCH less disappointed at the loss of Senna than I am at the retention of Maldonado. Senna did little to help his cause this year, so like most posters I feel this is no great loss. I can't believe Maldonado is still on the grid. This year, he won a race and yet finished 15th in the standings. There were SEVEN drivers who did not win a GP that scored more than this hack. I still believe he should have had his superlicence taken away for deliberately ramming Hamilton at Spa in 2011. That, and he also received a life ban for extremely dangerous behaviour at the Monaco circuit that somehow magically disappeared when he entered F1.

F1 » Button: Tyre strategy was very tricky to call


I posted a long time ago that, were I a team manager, my ideal team to win the WCC would be Button and Alonso. Button is next to unbeatable in changing conditions and Alonso can wring a car's neck and put it places that it has no right to be. What a cracking race! Great job JB. Great job by Massa, too. I think I'm back on the Massa bandwagon, after jumping off for dear life towards the end of last season.

F1 » Force India simmers over 'lost fairytale'


@Richard - being a Webber fan myself, I find that I usually disagree with you. However on this occassion, you've got it right. Hulkenberg was racing hard and fair while leaving plenty of room. His error was very small in very difficult conditions and I believe that this tangle was a racing incident, all things considered. Hulkenberg was probably technically at fault, but I don't think that fault warranted a drive through. While Hamilton was perhaps closer than he should have been, I wouldn't go so far as to suggest that he deserves any blame (he could take some small amount of responsibility, but shouldn't be blamed). Last season, I'm sure it would have been all on Hamilton the way he was driving, but this season he is driving much... wiser.

F1 » Vergne ends rookie year in points


...and Ricciardo again loses out to dodgy strategy calls. He was running in a solid 8th at one point, what the hell happened? Some turkey puts him on full wets and all of a sudden he's losing something like five or 10 seconds a lap, plus the extra 20-odd seconds to pit again to put the correct tyres on. I'm devastated that Ricciardo has been outscored by Vergne. Ricciardo is hands down the faster driver (quali is case in point) but keeps getting dudded in the races, sometimes his fault but mostly not. He deserved to be ahead of Vergne. Well ahead.

F1 » Webber full of praise for champion team-mate


@CommodoreS - hear, hear. Just finished watching the replay myself at 11.30pm Monday following the race. Don't expect much from the Channel 10 coverage this round with adverts bang on the pit stops through most of the race, screwing any chance you have of following strategy. The one that really annoyed me was during the safety car period when Button and Hulkenberg pitted and we didn't get to see where they rejoined. That and it wasn't on the high-def channel, the biggest loss being the 5.1 audio. Pitiful this year. Although, it was a sensational race. An F1 fan (as in a fan of the sport, as opposed to a Webber hater or Alonso/Hamilton/Marrussia fan) could not really ask for more. Sad for Hulkenberg but his own mistake cost him the win. Wouldn't blame him for the Hamilton tangle, however (nor blame Hamilton - racing incident).

F1 » McNish: Vettel needs to win title in Austin


McNish sounds like he has no idea what he's talking about. Red Bull have won the last three races at Interlagos - how does that factor into the "Vettel must wrap it up in Austin because Ferrari are strong in Brazil" theory? Alonso is undoubtedly good in the wet (not that you want to gamble a championship decider on whether a race is wet or not), but so is Vettel. Even if Vettel doesn't wrap up the championship in Austin, the smart money is still on him.
