F1 » Verstappen gets 2015 Toro Rosso drive


Good on him! I wish him the best of luck in his F1 career. 17 is what I would class as the youngest acceptable age for a F1 driver. Red Bull obviously have faith in his talent, and there is certainly nothing wrong with young drivers. Alonso was the youngest ever world champion in 2005. Hamilton came runner up by one point in his first year of F1. People had doubt due to Raikkonen's experience with junior Formula's, and he is now rated as one of the best. Vettel was a 4 time champion by age 26, Webber only began his career when he was that old. When you think about it, the younger F1 drivers have actually proven to be the best in the modern era. Talent is talent, it doesn't matter which numbers are on their birth certificate.

F1 » Maldonado keen for Grosjean to stay


It must be hard for both the Lotus boys this year. I think they are both talented and it's a shame the car has taken a giant leap backwards from what it was last year. Lotus need to provide Maldonado and Grosjean with a capable car if they want to see podiums and maybe a win. A driver can only use so much of his ability if the car is crap.

F1 » Button: No reason to want to change


Given the size, situation, and financial aspects of Formula 1's current grid, there is nowhere really for any top drivers to go. All the world champions are already comfortable in their current teams, which means there is no reason and/or it's not possible to switch. I'd like to see Button in a better car, but he physically can't go anywhere else. The only hope is that next years McLaren is much better.

F1 » Raikkonen sees Ferrari positives for 2015


How can Ferrari, one of (if not THE) greatest Formula 1 team, go from winning 6 constructors championships in a row, and then 2 in 07-08, to now squabbling over the bottom end of the points. What is going on over there in Maranello? I feel sorry for Kimi. Alonso obviously has an advantage in the way the car has been developed having been with the team for many years, but still. If the 2007 world champion can win 2 races in a Lotus, it makes you wonder just how bad is this years car?

F1 » Who has been your F1 driver of the year so far?


McLaren dropped him after one season because the car was so pathetic not even a world champion could put it on the podium. And they had Magnussen lined up anyway, Perez was never intended for the long term there. We all look for different things as fans, you're correct in saying Hulkenberg has been more consistent. But for me, I remember wins, podiums, moments of great talent and speed. Perez has put himself on the podium 4 times, and this year he was the one who gave Force India their first podium for 5 years. I can't remember where Hulkenberg has finished in all of his races, but what I can remember is that Perez has finished 2nd and 3rd twice. For me as a fan, that's what I value. You're entitled to value something else too, that's fine we're all different :)

F1 » Who has been your F1 driver of the year so far?


ryanshek: The Hulk got my vote, out scored the overrated Perez more than double (hows he got the McLaren drive last year was beyond me), come on Ferrari, McLaren, give the guy a chance!!!
Perez earned the McLaren seat because he put himself on the podium 3 times before he signed for them, and he has demonstrated good pace and talent in midfield cars. Hulkenberg hasn't finished higher than 4th.
