F1 » Kobayashi retains drive for Japanese Grand Prix

sodesu: Agree with the junglist. Junglists are clever people! Kobayashi was doing really well in GT and could probably have moved up to a decent LMP seat, which would probably have been much nicer than being treated like crap by the worst team on the grid.
Agree, but I suppose you can see the attraction of an F1 drive - whichever team it's with.. he gets to "showcase" his talent at least one more season . F1 drivers are all optimists and tend not to give up too easily! Even Lotterer was tempted to "have a go" but obviously decided Caterham was not "greener" than his tin-top team. You never know... stranger things have happened - Kobay might score a point & be a hero again.

DTM » Ex-F1 driver Petrov still chasing first DTM points

Interesting. Just goes to show that DTM isn't that easy, as many commentators seem to think... Di Resta & Glock have both struggled this year despite previously having loads of F1 experience, and even Coulthard and Ralph S were distinctly average when they had a go at it too. (Di Resta should be flying having been champion before, but he has yet to better 4th place!) I wish the detractors of drivers such as these (and not forgetting Susie Wolff), would stop inferring that the series is a "step-down" from F1 or not worthy of much attention, a home for old drivers etc., and see it rather as an alternative series needing different techniques of driving style and so-on than Formula 1.

F1 » Kaltenborn: Sauber merger difficult

I just think it's very sad for Sauber. Always the plucky mid-field team you could cheer them on and be happy for them to be in the points or the odd podium. Time moves-on I suppose.. we now have Force India effectively in their shoes & maybe also if you include Toro Rosso as well. Who would have thought having a Ferrari engine in the back of your car would be so disasterous this time last year? Ironically, we could be looking at another Brabham here (keeping it topical). Fizzling-out, then "coming back" 15years later under the ownership of a consortium and having no connection to Peter Sauber's team at all!

F1 » Raikkonen rues ‘f***ing up my tyres’

LeisuresuitLarry: I think he was more pointing out that, on these silly street circuits with tight corners and no flow, overtaking is virtually impossible if cars are similarly matched.
Tell JEV that...after he got that 5 sec penalty he proceeded on pass two and cleared out
Excellent point! .. Kimi's fans seem to have missed that!

F1 » Vergne defies penalties to claim P6 in Singapore

"When the going gets tough.. the tough get going" JEV proved that old adage still applies. I think being "beaten" to the top Red Bull seat did affect him for some time, but he seems to have picked himself up & got on with it now! Like a lot of fellow posters, I do hope he can stay in a decent seat... outside guess/ bet could be Lotus (?) .. if Grosjean goes they might like to keep a French driver .. he's probably cheap to employ and Lotus will undoubtedly improve next year....

F1 » Marussia helped by Kobayashi uncertainty

Hmm... maybe they could afford to have Kobayashi on board next year if they do keep 9th place.. ? He'd certainly bring a big fan base with him and the media seem to like him too. "Safe-pair-of-hands" M4X doesn't generate the interest or adulation KK does... Could be on the cards... especially with the Ferrari connection.. (assuming KK can re-build bridges with them)?
