F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2014: 1st

VegasRyder: well I think Dan could have done better how bout that. What . 8 podiums in 19 races with a team that won the last 4 constructor and driver titles in the previous 4 yrs. good, not absolutely amazing. IMO.
Did you get your logic from a box of Rice Crispies? What's got last 4 years' RBR cars have to do with this year? RBR and DR scored podiums DESPITE having a poor engine whereas other teams had the magnificent Mercedes engine to begin with! Daniel's driving was superb and in Hungary he gave Alonso and Hamilton a lesson on overtaking on a twisty track. Please note: I am NOT a Lewis hater. I just use rationale. Yes, each person has the right to their opinion, but I would be quite embarrassed to have yours.

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2014: 1st

Lewis is good, but I doubt he would have won a single race this season if he had been on the Red Bull, whereas Daniel won three. Furthermore, Daniel would have been champion had he been on the Mercedes, beating Rosberg on racedays and, quite surely, beating him on Saturdays too (Edit - which Lewis didn't do). You really can't see it any other way... That illustrates how much better Daniel was this year over anyone else. Lewis was champion by virtue of his car, Daniel performed outside the limitations of his equipment.

LoveF1: I'm probably the exception here but I don't think Dan is the driver of the year. I think Lewis is! There were so many situations where Lewis could have put a foot wrong but didnt. He demonstrated his full maturity as a driver and claimed the championship with loads to spare at the end. The double points scenario could have thrown him in previous years but he held his nerve and grabbed the initiative from Rosberg on so many occasions in different races. And if people are arguing that Dan smashed Vettel (which he may have done), then Lewis also definitely smashed Rosberg. No, Rosberg may not be a 4-time world champ, but he's no slouch and he WAS driving that Merc. Lewis can only destroy whichever teammate he is given and he did that convincingly.
Hahah... Fanaticism is so mind-numbing... You should change your name from 'LoveF1' to 'LoveLewis'! Lewis is good, but I doubt he would have won a single race this season if he had been on the Red Bull, whereas

F1 » Ricciardo thanks readers for award

I find it amusing that there are a few who 'disagree' with the positive comments on here congratulating Daniel Ricciardo on a job well done. These people, however, do not substantiate their 'disagreement' with comments. I fear a wave of anti-Daniel sentiment in the coming years when, as is expected, Daniel lectures the "ladies" (the rest of the field) on how it's done... :-P

F1 » Hamilton the best on the F1 grid – Rosberg

What Nico should have said was: "The best car-driver combination won." But his gesture in defeat was gracious and that is appreciated. Lewis is so gifted that he really should have dominated this season like Mansell in '92 and Schumi in, say, 2002. That it went down to the last race doesn't speak very highly of him, considering that the untalented but amenable Rosberg was in the other car. Ricciardo was always measured but bold and he produced week in-week out. Only when his car was substantially bad was he mired in lower placings. But this is good for Daniel: to show he can fight with lesser equipment, when the Campionship is his, no-one will dare say it was solely because of his superior machinery.

MotoGP » Rossi 'won't give up' in pursuit of top three

Former motorcycle GP racer Daryl Beattie summed it up pretty well last night on TV: Rossi just can't compete with the newer generation, and I agree. Every generation is better than the one before. It's not a shame for Rossi, no disrespect, it's just the way it is. He's done what he could do and did it well. I think he should consider retiring and giving up that ride to someone who would be on a par with the younger riders because, as it is, that YAMAHA is just making up the numbers.

F1 » Ricciardo deal done, to be announced at Spa?

I'm extremely happy for Daniel. People whinge that RB didn't give the seat to a top driver, but I digress. Who says Daniel is not a top driver? Just because he hasn't driven in a top car doesn't mean he's not. Was McLaren wrong to give a drive to Kimi in 2002? Was Renault wrong to give Alonso a drive in 2003? People are so in love with personalities that they forget that the field is full of people with potential to be the next big thing (Perez, Hulkenberg, Bianchi to name a few). I'm sure we'll see Daniel giving Vettel a good run for his money, not like Grosjean, but more like Hamilton to Alonso. Here's hoping!
