F1 » Dennis: McLaren could retain line-up

I respect people's opinions, however, I disagree that Button is a mediocre, washed up racing talent. He's not. He is not in Alonso's or Kimi's class, and you can add one or two other names, but after that very short list he is right there. Vettel? Would you really take him over Button? JB has managed every one of his very fast teammates. Two of them won world championships, as did he. Seb? Currently being destroyed by his teammate. Is Dennis wating for Alonso? Will wait a long time. Lewis or Nico, should the Merc team detonate? Likely, and I can foresee a situation where Lewis returns to McLaren, where he worked very well with Button. But say Alonso, or Lewis, or Seb moved. If you plugged JB into the Ferrari, Mercedes or RB team you would almost certainly have driver harmony and great car development. I wouldn't write his career off just yet.

F1 » McLaren confirms 2013 profit of £18.8m

Humour aside, this profit reflects the sad reality of F1. McLaren has been able to pay excellent driver and key personnel salaries, and they have had ample money to develop the car, though they have failed to do so. But it was not a shortage of money. Can't blame McLaren or any of the top teams that run their teams well and make money but more appropriate revenue sharing with the smaller teams is essential for the long term success of the show. Ten million more to a small team would allow for better aero development and to employ drivers that belong in F1 while ten million to a larger team is hardly noticeable.

F1 » Allison: Ferrari thinks too ‘short-term’

Kimi is coming good the and the word is that both he and Alonso are working long hours with the engineers in ways that are proving quite productive. I agree with the comment. Too frequently, Ferrari would go into crisis mode if they were not winning and demand immediate change, however, the chaos likely caused them to take their eye off of the longer term goals. I think they might win a race this year and will return to wining ways next year.

F1 » Hamilton: It’s far from over

benignlyindifferent: F1 teams have been pulling drivers out of races to preserve the machinery for the past several years. This is a non-issue. Is the race open? You bet, with double points for the final two races, but both Lewis and Nico need to keep an eye on the RB camp as anything is possible. 0 agree 0 disagree
"with double points for the final two races," Dear god please NO......... One is bad enough
I know, brain fart moment on my part....
