F1 » In memory of... 1984

I don't think that comparing Lauda and Prost with Hamilton and Rosberg and the situation of 1984 to that of 2014 is entirely correct. The McLaren Mp4/2 was the best car back then, Prost also won 2 titles with the B and C version of that car. But the Brabham was as fast in 1984 and Piquet retired many times while leading the race commandingly. This year Mercedes is the fastest car on both single lap and race-pace, so no much interference from the others. Also both Lauda and Prost were astute and intelligent, I am not sure that the Mercedes duo is like them. This article stated that the intra-team battles between the Williams drivers back in 1996, or McLaren ones in 1988/89 were a different story. I agree. But the 2014 fight between the Mercedes duo is a different story as well compared to any previous season. That's the story of Mercedes, Lewis, Nico and co in the 2014 FIA F1 season.

F1 » What we learned at the British Grand Prix

Silverstone must be cursed :P because usually a driver doesn't win consecutive races here. The last time it happened was in 1999-2000 when Coulthard won the British GP back to back. Even the great Schumacher having won there in 2002 and 2004, was out of picture in the 2003 event while his team-mate Barrichello was very hot on his wheels at the 2003 race. Webber came close to win it last year. After winning it in 2012 he finished less than a second to Rosberg in the 2013 event. After qualifying it looked that Rosberg may win it again but the gearbox...Anyway he and Lewis were on different strategies so victory was not certain for Nico.

F1 » Fast start for ‘best of the rest’ Alonso

@Cris Zarate Alonso always delivers something to cheer about, whatever car he drives, especially this uncompetitive F14T. That's why I admire him so much, that's why I think he is undoubtly the best driver in F1 since 2006. On bad cars many fails to impress (think about Hamilton at the early races of 2009, Vettel and Raikkonen this year or Button) while he is always is there scoring some good points, extracting everything from his car. What a pity that he never had once a dominant car for most of the year. He would crash the opposition, I'm sure about it.

F1 » Hamilton hoping dream reoccurs at ‘special race’

George Zaidan: My dreams are more important than Nico's. Hey Nico, you won the British GP last year can I have this one? No Lewis, I need to win a this one too, I'm shooting for my hat trick, you've got one of those and a WDC, so it's only fair that I get a hat trick and a WDC. I hope you understand and that we can stay best friends for ever and ever.
Nico, is not a good friend, that's would say Ali G. :)

F1 » Horner: Mateschitz deserves Austria praise

I agree with Horner! Every F1 fan should thank Mateschitz for making possible that Austria held again an F1 race. Especially after they didn't change the characteristics of the old A1 Ring. Tracks like that has never been RBR strongest points, so Mateschitz deservers praise for not changing the layout, in order to suit his teams. He took the risk of Red Bull/Toro Rosso making a bad showing in their home race, which they did, just for us, the F1 fans, who loves the good old circuits. I think that from 2001 to 2007 many old circuits where ruined by the modifications done on them. I really don't like much the Tilkedromes, exept Shanghai, Sepang ( I think A1 Ring is also a Tilkedrome but I am not sure), so I am full of praise for Mateschitz.

F1 » Mattiacci: Gaps are coming down

Lauda also said that the others are closing the gap to Mercedes. In Austria it was only Williams managing to run close to Mercedes for the whole race. Prior to that it was Red Bull (in general), so gaps are coming down. But to beat Mercedes is another story, they still enjoy much advantage over the rest of the field, epecially their PU is a lot better compared to rivals PUs. And without speaking of the standings. There Mercedes looks unreachable, more than the double of RBR points and 200 + more than third placed Ferrari.

F1 » Ferrari ‘doing level best’ to become competitive

Let's see if the return of an old circuit (albeit a reworked one) will manage to suit the Ferrari's cars, and they will be able to race as strong as they were in the old A1 Ring. I hope that Ferrari will be stronger this weekend. Alonso didn't got a podium when he raced there more than 10 years ago. Spielberg is the only place he raced and never got a podium. I hope that this weekend he will make amends on it :)

F1 » In memory of ... the 2002 Austrian Grand Prix

fourteenseven: the 2003 race was quite a good race, after the opening laps you would never have guessed schumie was going to win
Agree with you! And the 2003 edition was the last race held at the old A1 Ring, so it made more sense to writte an article about the 2003 race rather than the controversy of 2002. Usually people do like controversies, but today that Schumacher is finally out of the coma?!! That's not nice!
