F1 » Maldonado: No plans to change

Oh, how this man infuriates me. He thinks this style has granted him success? REALLY? The only time he has succeeded is when he was gifted pole and didn't have any other cars in front of him to crash off the track! The guy simply can not race with anyone else around him. Take a look at his 2012 - he finished 15th in the driver standings and that included a 25 point haul. There were no less than SEVEN drivers ahead of him that didn't win a race. That's seven drivers currently on the grid who are a whole lot more consistent than he is. He didn't get a single point for the next NINE races following his win! If his measure of success is a solitary (and in my opinion, fluke) win and therefore wont change his, ahem, 'style', then he's destined to remain on that single win. He is the most penalised driver in a single season in F1 history. This is the only F1 list he will ever top.

F1 » Ricciardo pleased with progress

@CommodoreS - hear, hear. He strikes me as one of the most genuine guys on the grid. With the attitude he has, I sincerely hope he goes far in F1. Regardless, he'll go far in life. Let's just hope that next season he isn't dudded from the pit wall with strategy calls so daft that blind Freddy could see them.

F1 » Ferrari expected more of Schumacher at Interlagos

@JohnO - did you not watch the first half of the race? When Vettel was charging back through the field following his spin (that he himself caused), he caught Webber who let him through without issue. The call from the pit wall came over the radio "Thanks Mark". It was as plain to see as the nose on a 2012 F1 car is ugly. Yes, Webber was racing for position off the start. With Vettel's position at that stage securing the championship, why wouldn't he? It was clean racing, so what's the problem?

F1 » Maldonado targets title with Williams

@mix - that "amazing self belief" has landed him in more hot water with the stewards than any other driver in Formula 1 history in a single season. He has no chance of winning a title if he carries on with this level of "amazing self belief". He may be quick, but that matters very little if you drive like you're in NASCAR. Lap times don't earn a WDC, finishing in the points does and that is something Maldonado is just no good at. There are no more tickets on Maldonado available, because he holds them all himself. @ghog - I laughed so hard at that I received many a strange look in the office. Gold, sir.

F1 » Maldonado targets title with Williams

Ah ha ha ha ha! Two things - firstly, Williams won't be winning any titles while they're so cash-strapped the race seats go to the highest bidder, and secondly, Maldonado won't win a title. Especially when he can't even scrape together a single point in NINE RACES after collecting a fluke win. Even Senna finished in the points more often.

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.
