F1 » Hulkenberg to rejoin Force India


If I were Hulkenberg, I'd be - a. happy I'm on the grid next season. b. disappointed it wont be with a front running team, and c. just a tiny bit concerned as to why Force India didn't bother to pay a professional photographer to take half reasonable photos for the press release for the naming of the team's big new driver signing...

F1 » Boullier: Maldonado will flourish at Lotus


@atxsxsw - love it, I'm totally on board! You're absolutely right - he's fooling no-one. The only person on the planet who believes Maldonado has got this drive over Hulkenberg on merit is probably Maldonado himself. Mark my words, this will come back to bight Lotus in the Boullier. At least Grosjean will now have the team's full backing from the beginning of the season, unlike with Raikonnen. All we can do is hope that this a blessing in disguise for Hulkenberg and there is something big waiting just around the corner for him.

F1 » Force India: Lotus a 'stumbling block' on driver front


@Optimaximal - so if RBR are Renault's pseudo works team, what does that make Lotus? They finished ahead of Force India as well. And McLaren certainly aren't a works team. I disagree that Red Bull is Renault's pseudo works team just because they don't pay for engines. That's a commercial arrangement for engine supply and support, not full in-house car development. However you define define the term, Force India did not finish as first "non-manufacture team". Instead of making stuff up that doesn't make any sense, how about simply saying that Force India finished an impressive 6th?

F1 » Force India: Lotus a 'stumbling block' on driver front


What the hell is a "non-manufacturer team" and how are Force India the first of them? Every team is required to manufacture their own chassis, so how is any team a "non-manufacturer"? Red Bull don't manufacture cars like Ferrari and Mercedes, so that can't be it as RBR won the championship. Red Bull is also a customer team for engines, so that can't be it. Damnit crash.net, stop making stuff up! :)

F1 » Maldonado 'close' to 2014 deal


DM25 - Grosjean was making errors, which he has been able to learn from. Maldonado has a very poor attitude and that is much harder to turn around. Case in point is Spa 2011 when Maldonado deliberately rammed Hamilton. Also look at his comments regarding the team in Texas. He has the record for receiving the most penalties in an F1 season. This is not the same as turning around Grosjean's errors. I think Taz has hit the nail on the head regarding Grosjean v Maldonado. I completely agree - there will be a point when Grosjean is thumping him and the toys will end up out of the cot.

F1 » Maldonado: Williams 'will stay in my heart forever'


believeme5 - I'd go further than that and say there'd be champagne and cheers at Williams as Maldonado is bounced through the doors and onto the kerb, a la Moe tossing Barney out of his tavern. There is one thing I can't wrap my head around - Williams have demonstrated that the poor results Maldonado produces are not worth the millions he brings to the team. Williams are known to struggle financially, yet dropping him is still the preferable option. Knowing this, why are Lotus willing to pick up what Williams discards? Williams have snared a high quality driver who was pushed out of a top team (good on Williams), whereas Lotus seem to want to pick up an unsuccessful pay driver dropped by a mid pack team. I'll phrase it simply - Williams have decided that the money he brings doesn't justify giving him a drive.

F1 » Hulkenberg secures P10 in Drivers' Championship


Taipan, I take your point, but I blame Lotus for getting themselves in the position to need Maldonado's money in the first place. I think you could probably trace it back to ING bailing out of Renault after crash-gate. I think they've struggled since then, really. Eric Boullier has particularly mismanaged his drivers - I recall some fairly average comments he made relating to Kubica's possible return, he threw Heidfeld out on his ear only to bring in a rather useless Senna, Petrov was largely a failure, and let's not forget the financial treatment Raikonnen copped this year.
