F1 » Bottas surprised by Red Bull pace


Red Bull's ability to turn the tables is impressive, their rate of in-season development is currently the best, it has been so for quite a few years now. Alongside Mercedes, Williams and Marussia, I consider them as great winners this season. On the other hand Ferrari, McLaren and Lotus are big loosers this year, because not only they got it wrong, they also look unable to make a big step forward. The season isn't over yet but I doubt they can improve much this year.

They always put Hamilton as the most likely to take pole. They forgot that Lewis hasn't got a pole position since the Spanish GP. It wasn't always his fault but also he did made his own mistakes in qualifying this year. As for the race result, I guess that Williams will handle better the opposition by Red Bull this time. If does not rains.

F1 » Ferrari battle not personal – Smedley


Smedley is talking much in recent months. Ok, he is making a very good job at Williams but I thought that the man who is most responsible for Williams current form was Pat Symonds, which rarely speaks to the media. Maybe I'm wrong, does anyone of you guys knows something about the contribution of Smedley and Symonds in the Williams team? Having the Mercedes engine did help Williams this year but also the chassis and other stuff is quite good in the FW36. Someone has to take credit about that(also every employee gives his contribution), as usually happen with Newey's incredible designs at Red Bull or in the cases when someone is pointed as responsible for the failure and is fired. Who's the main man behind the succes of the FW36 (aside Bottas :) ) ?

F1 » Grosjean: Monza will be tough for Lotus


Lotus didn't performed well at recent races (after Monaco) and with the ban of the FRIC system I don't see them making much improvement in the near future. The Spanish GP was the highlight of their season, how Grosjean managed to outqualify both Ferraris there and also he raced against them. Now they are in serious trouble. Luckily for them Grosjean managed to score a few points in order to keep the team safe from Sauber or Marussia. Anyway this is a terrible season for the team. Monza will be just another touch and pointless race for a team that until last year was able to get big points and even podiums at every race.

F1 » Hamilton: We both made mistakes


I doubt that the main problem is solved. Both of them wants the drivers title and when the season gets closer to the end I expect more fireworks between them. Maybe in Monza things will be more calm but if Lewis manages to cut the point deficit race by race, I do expect Rosberg to be on full attack mode. Who knows, maybe they can try to block each other, maybe they will use again the special engine modes (against the direction of the team) and maybe they will crash again. It will be very interesting!

F1 » New chassis for Vettel in Monza


benignlyindifferent: Question. Under the new formula, and with money no object as you hypothetically set your new driver lineup, who would be your top two drivers? Mine would be Ricciardo and Alonso.
Mine too! Without undermining the great job of some other drivers like Bottas, Bianchi or the Mercedes drivers as well, I really think that these two are the best drivers of the season so far.

F1 » New chassis for Vettel in Monza


I think this is tradition now. Whenever Vettel is on trouble, a new chassis. This happened in 2010, 2012 and twice in 2014(this year the matter is serious). I bet that the new chassis at best will iron more Vettel's confidence than the handling of the car. This would be good as well but will be enough to beat Ricciardo? I doubt it. @Alex4F1 Alonso and Raikkonen crashed a few times in 2004 and 2008, so Trulli and Massa got the upper hand on them for a few races. But it wasn't the case that they failed to led at least a lap while their team-mates won races. The same could be said for Hamilton in 2011.
