F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2014: 5th


Although, Alonso and Bottas, both had rather flat last quarters. Alonso could have been from a combination of motivation and team mgt. spreading out the support for FA and Kimi, once intentions were known. Bottas, though ... I'd like to know more about the circumstances that had the tables turned in the Williams camp - if only for curiosity's sake. Before the results went to Massa, it did not look like it was possible. Then, it looked like Bottas hit a ceiling of performance which was ust below Massa's. Was there a story missed?

F1 » Hamilton: I don’t want it easy


Taipan:
Don Hopings: The thing that made no sense was... I made a comment about no other driver breaking into F-1 had kept a 2x WDC at bay for an entire season. Granted, I didn't do specific research, but I've been following F-1 since the early 60's and I don't remember this situation happening at an other time than 2007.
Fanboys constantly going on about 2007 get on my tits. Yes matching Alonso in his debut season was a great achievement no doubt about it. Although there was much favouratism towards him and unlike any other "rookie" in history he had the benefit of 1000 hours of testing the year before. But how many other "rookies" entered F1 in a championship winning car? I can think of Jacques Villeneuve who finished 2nd in the championship just like Lulu. How epic would Lulu's debut season have been if he started in a Super Aguri or a Spyker? the sort of team most drivers started their career with,
or an over-the-hill Williams

F1 » Hamilton: I don’t want it easy

Don Hopings: It wouldn't have been close except for Rosberg's 10 #2's. That was the ONLY thing that kept him in the hunt. But tell me, how do you explain the fact that Rosberg NEVER passed Hamilton on track for the entire season?
good manners
Yes, good manners like Monte Carlo and Spa. Rosberg did have a habit of out-braking himself, didn't he?
Good manners to cool it in Bahrain and not continue to attempt the pass risking breaking the bosses' china dolls all over the racing surface. Good manners to not try a banzai move in Spain resulting in the same. Good manners to not try to pass in Hungary although having license to do so. Good manners to not park at the entrance in the escape lane. Good manners to not pull a Kimi, Romain, or Petrov and keep his foot to the floor through the run-off at SPA or to fight for a spot on the curbing. These are all moves that are a part of other

F1 » Hamilton: I don’t want it easy


cont'd These are all moves that are a part of other drivers' playbooks. The person you are propping has been known to do one or two. Good manners to not take the two cars fighting for the championship out. A few broadsides given like the one that was done to him in Austin and Bahrain would have been good medicine for what ailed his later attempts at recouping respect from his teammate. He was/is very much treated like Rene Arnoux. He wins in spite of what the team wants. Has two number one drivers that he is capable of beating. The likeness diverges where Rosberg will listen to team orders and obey the wants of the team over his own. It's because he has good manners. Good manners is not necessarily a good thing to have when fighting for a championship.
