F1 » Marussia hoping for more Monte magic


So .. this assumes: they qualify and stay ahead of the Caterhams, both Saubers retire, one or both of the Lotus cars go out, Kimi's Ferrari is more twitchy than usual and Button is struggling with "no grip".... oh, and a safety car session (or two), Massa has one of his "blackout" moments, and a Merc-powered car has some unexplained weird issue ... " Yehhyyy! we finished 12th & 13th" ..... wow!!

F1 » Raikkonen doesn’t need my help – Mattiacci


At the winter break (after 2013) no-one really knew what the cars would be like with the new power units & regs. Most drivers would have assumed that Ferrari would be bound to produce a half-decent car and the lesser teams would be the ones struggling and having problems, so Kimi was not to know how it would pan-out. Red Bull quickly got a handle on it as did most of the teams after a few races. Still, Alonso manages to get 4ths 5ths at most races, so you'd expect a driver of Kimi's calibre to at least be matching him or close . It's like Kimi has a different car altogether! Strange... maybe it is just down to motivation...if he cant be on the podium he gives up(?) He seemed happy enough at Lotus to start with last year...

F1 » Lotus confirms Maldonado for 2015


Surely Lotus could find a half-decent driver with backing? ... there seems to be plenty of pay-drivers out there who could be a bit more reliable and less controversial? .must be one awesome cheque he brings to weigh so heavily in his favour! .. Grosjean has always been Boullier's "golden boy" and now Eric can maybe bring him to Mclaren(?) although I read there could be a conflict of sponsors in that event.. if he does go to McL, then I expect Lotus to get someone like Sutil in or even M4X ... mmm now there's a thought!

F1 » Wolff: FP1 run ‘fantastic’


Pity they can't "parachute her in" to another team (ie back-marker) to get her used to actual race conditions... I'm sure she'd be fine.. a little rusty after a break from DTM but 3 or 4 races should be enough. To all the posters who say that she was only average in DTM.. well, ok but look at famous "names" that went there (or who are there now) and struggled... P diResta -- back of grid,, Timo Glock.. 1 win but not much else.. Coulthard & Ralf S... both midfield runners.. I could go on. DTM's hardly Renault Clio racing! Given a chance (soon) I think she could pull a big surprise.

F1 » Sainz Jr confirms Caterham contact


Looks like it's a "done deal" then. Put Sainz in, write-off the gearbox invoices, get him groomed for TR. As was said, Ericsson brings money, so they can't dump him anytime soon, despite him not being brilliant.. Nightmare for Koby... hope he hasn't upset Ferrari so much as they won't take him back. Still, there's plenty of good other series always looking for ex-F1 drivers. I think that was probably his last chance in F1....

F1 » De la Rosa feels ‘an inferiority’


Yeah... depressing. They've got to sort something out as regards testing. The "test & reserve" drivers title is now a joke! Look at poor old Davide Valsecchi last season.. a more p*****d-off person I've yet to see! As Pedro says.. it's all very well having hi-tech simulators but a driver does need to be in the real thing too. I hope FIA (or whoever) can allocate more testing days.. maybe impose a rule that only bona-fide test and/or reserve drivers allowed? Sad... F1 is going down a cul-de -sac in my view :(
