F1 » Webber holds off Hamilton to keep podium place

@F1 Fan - Webber 'out drove' Hamilton because Webber had either no or reduced power KERS for two-thirds of the race. Hamilton's steering wheel problem cost him one second in the pits, once. KERS was reportedly worth .3s per lap in India, so Webber was losing a second approximately every three laps. This is important because KERS makes a massive difference on long straights after a low speed entry. The point is not that Webber beat Hamilton by only 0.7s, it is that Webber was able to hold off a McLaren while his car was at significantly reduced power. BTW, there are two 'b's in Webber.

F1 » Massa backed to repay Ferrari trust

Does anyone else interpret 'repay' as 'keep the seat warm for (insert big name driver here) and move asside without fuss in 2014'? I can't remember the last time Ferrari signed a race driver on a one year deal. I wont speculate as to his replacement, but I do believe Ferrari have plans to bring in a big name next to Alonso in 2014. Massa is very lucky to get a 2013 drive with Ferrari.

F1 » Massa: The pressure is off

If he thinks that one podium in two years takes the pressure off, either he knows something we don't or he's deluded. Ferrari are third in the WCC and are in real danger of being pushed to fourth, all the while one of their drivers leads the WDC! I would think the pressure is very much on. Perhaps more so now that he's shown he can do it still.

F1 » Kobayashi unsure on F1 future

I find Kobayashi one of the most likeable guys on the grid (Ricciardo is another). Not that that helps keep a drive, however. He's always been very exciting to watch and I really do hope he stays in F1. I think McLaren made the right choice with Perez, however. I remember some months ago, or perhaps even last season, Kobayashi was asked the question "why is it that you're so good at passing" and HIS response was "maybe it's because I'm Japanese my eyes are smaller and I don't see the other cars!" I nearly fell off my chair laughing when I read it.

F1 » Kobayashi unsure on F1 future

@shaken - "no one in the whole F1 paddock is sure of their future". That's just a little bit over the top. Vettel, Webber, Button, Perez, Alonso, Rosberg and Hamilton are pretty sure of their immediate F1 future. Raikkonen and de la Rosa also have contracts for 2013 in place. Nine drivers is just a few more than "no one".

F1 » Points return for Maldonado - but did he win on Sunday night?

@KGBVD - perhaps my comparison was a little unfair, however I stand by my comment that Maldonado's win was a fluke. He holds the record for most driving penalties in a season. What makes this even worse is that it is the CURRENT season in which he earned that title. We have five more races to go and nobody in the history of F1 has been penalised more in a season! How many drivers score a win and then take another 10 races to finish in a scoring position? Very, very few.
