F1 » Vettel wants Raikkonen as toughest rival


Omega:
benignlyindifferent: You may be correct in this regard. I hope not, but you might. And if this is the case then I suspect we have a field of Webbers and one Vettel. Regardless of Alonso's and Hamilton's reputations, the first hasn't won anything sine leaving Renault and Lewis enjoys the very best car in F1. In equal machinery, everyone is a Webber compared with Vettel, with the exception of a couple of young ones who have not yet had top machinery. And I am not even a Vettel fan.
I guess we just wont mention Ricciardo, who utterly SMASHED Vettel when they were team mates. Nope, don't mention that...
Off year by Vettel, but you are correct. And I believe DR in equal machinery would push Seb more than Alonso or Hamilton. And I also think Verstappen would too.My opinion and many will disagree.

F1 » Haas unveils VF-16 for maiden F1 campaign


Taz: The cars look and sound boring which is why I'm going to a classic GP this year instead.
I was very critical of the sound, but I was in Budapest this year and was surprised at the spectacle. You did not have to wear ear plugs as before and the sounds were better than expected. And the sound of the Mercedes in the recent video suggests they may sound even better. To me, it is not just the noise, it is the revs. A 16,000 rpm cannot be replicated at 12,000 regardless of the volume, still, was not that bad. Hopefully this year will be a bit better. But the GP 2 and 3 cars did sound just as good if not a bit better.

F1 » Vettel wants Raikkonen as toughest rival

rob01: He's paired with another Webber. Just like he requested.
Kimi has had a bad run of late but recently his pace has improved and hopefully he will be back to form for the start. But comparing his 20 wins, 80 podiums and 1 championship to Webber's 9 wins, 42 podiums and 0 championships is a slight embellishment, is it not?
He's no threat to Vettel. Same as Webber.
You may be correct in this regard. I hope not, but you might. And if this is the case then I suspect we have a field of Webbers and one Vettel. Regardless of Alonso's and Hamilton's reputations, the first hasn't won anything sine leaving Renault and Lewis enjoys the very best car in F1.

Its a well known fact that drivers (and any sports person) can have a bad race or year even. Under normal cicumstances Vettel is a far superior driver to Ricciardo who himself must have had a bad year having been beaten by Kvyat, although I suspect Kvyat will totally dominate Ricciardo from now on. Mark my word

F1 » A tragedy if Ferrari doesn’t win F1 title by 2018 - Marchionne


Yes, Shakespearean tragedy's origins are rooted in Greek tragedy, whereby a tragic figure or hero suffers a downfall and death due to an inherent tragic flaw. Hamlet procrastinated, Macbeth succumbed to power, and Othello became lost in jealousy. All died. Contemporary tragedy typically has the tragic figure die for no meaning whatsoever, evoking pathos. Wille Loman comes to mind. So no, I do not find anything tragic at all if Ferrari does not win the title, though I sure want them to. But your point that English is not his first language is well taken.
