F1 » Ricciardo: Red Bull set-up for race

Despite the race set-up, it will be a touch race for Ricciardo and maybe for Vettel as well (despite starting from third) because the Renault power unit won't help them on the straights of Spa. Alonso and Bottas did jump the RBR duo at the start in Hungary and maybe can do it again. Further back there are also other Mercedes powered car and Raikkonen, which can do something special on this circuit. Maybe I'm wrong but I see troubles everywhere for RBR for tomorrow race.

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.

F1 » Raikkonen hopes for ‘welcome surprise’ at Monza

Last time Kimi raced at Monza for Ferrari he finished 3rd, which was a very good result considering that the Force India was very strong on low downforce, and McLaren's Kovalainen was on a very effective one stop strategy. I hope he can repeat it. Also it was Brawn GP's last one-two finish, they would not win another race after it. Lets see what Mercedes can do, Lewis and Nico are not the nice guys like Jenson and Rubens in the Brawn GP.

F1 » Horner: We never thought Ricciardo would be this strong

I doubt anyone thought that Ricciardo would be such strong this year, neither the bosses of RBR/STR nor we fans. He wasn't very special at Toro Rosso, while Vettel impressed everyone when he raced for the junior team. I remember reading an article at F1 Rejects last year. They thought that Vergne would be a better choice for RBR and Daniel wouldn't fare better than Webber did. Mind you that the admin of that page is Aussie himself. Mercedes should enjoy it while it lasts. If Renault gets it right next year, they are in serious trouble for 2015.

F1 » Alonso: Race was over after penalty

Today I saw many drivers overtaking after Eau Rouge (the most obvious place for overtaking) using their superior power or much fresher tyres or both of them. It was nice watching Kimi and Fernando trying it in different places, showing the world what amazing drivers they are despite having less power than their rivals or inferior aerodynamics (compared to RBR, Mercedes). Kimi's driving today deserved a podium finish and Fernando deserved more than 7th. Hope that they will have more luck in Monza.

F1 » Ricciardo: It’s never over

Ricciardo as impressive as ever. Not a single mistake today. Well done. It is curious that after qualifying he said he was confident of challenging his team-mate, Ferrari and Williams drivers but he hoped that something will go wrong for the dominant Mercedes. It happened exactly as this and he was there to capitalise on it. This guy looks to be telepatic as well. Red Bull hit the jackpot by signing him.
