F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2014: 1st


Taipan:
TenaciousC: Obviously there are less "one eyed fanboys" out there than some on here try and ram down everyone's throats.
There are plenty of one eyed fanboys but thankfully not enough to make their idol an undeserving winner on this poll.
At time of writing four people agree... no prizes for putting names to stats! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :)

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year 2014: 1st


Couldn't agree more with this. Stand out driver of the year. The driver that I would say overachieved most given the equipment available to him and expectations at the start of the year. The only non Mercedes driver to win a race in 2014, performed some outstanding overtaking manoeuvres, gave well established and respected former world champions a good run for their money, adapted well to the rule changes and overall out performed his four time world champion team mate. Obviously there are less "one eyed fanboys" out there than some on here try and ram down everyone's throats. Well done Dan, potential star of the future that will hopefully help bring the art of "racing" back to Formula 1.

F1 » F1: Hamilton wins Sports Personality of the Year


Taipan, you and your cronies can stop rocking back and forth now. Its over, there isn't anything else Lewis Hamilton can win this year! SPOTY hasn't been about personality for a long time. Andy Murray won it last year!! Lewis may have had the best car, but he still had to beat a fiercely competitive team mate who had the same equipment that was more reliable over the course of the year! I see it as a win for Formula 1 as much as it is a win for Lewis. In a year where it has had negative publicity due to safety (thinking of Jules this Christmas), politics, engine noise, single team domination, Bernies bribery case et al it has beaten a number of worthy sports and sportsmen and women. Which means it still has a large fan base. Which can only be good for the sport as a whole. I'm not overly fond of the guy, but credit where its due, well done Lewis, well done Mercedes, well done Formula 1.

F1 » Caterham F1 ‘90%’ likely to race in Abu Dhabi


My guess this is a ploy to try and get the 'crowd' to invest more money. Advertising that they are "90%" likely to race suggests that they are "we still can't race yet unless you give us more money" whilst holding out the begging bowl and putting on a sad face. It gives any fans they might have left hope that they will be in Abu Dhabi and a guilt trip is being used to get them to dip their hands into their pockets. I'd be surprised if they do make it. Hats off to the guys that make the effort to get the cars out there if they are successful.

MotoGP » Parkes: It's a case of counting down the races


LeisuresuitLarry: No disrespect to the British series but it's pretty sad when a MotoGP rider's aspiration is to get a good ride in BSB.
I agree with what you are saying in principle, but does it not highlight just how good the British domestic series is? If he did get a ride who is to say he'd be a front runner? There are already riders in BSB who have flirted with MotoGP, the most successful of which id say is James Ellison who has race wins and has the potential to be a champion but has yet to add it to his CV. There are reports of Camier going back. On the whole, hats off to BSB series, may it continue to grow and succeed.

F1 » Rosberg disputes Hamilton claims


Elswagger: @Welshie What Toto said, “Nico said he could have avoided it but didn’t to prove a point” Is essentially no different that Hamilton saying he did it on purpose, because how can you NOT purposely avoid a collision and at the same time NOT cause a collision deliberatly. Keeping things like this internal only promotes deep suspicion, why can’t Rosberg see that? Nobody in their right mind trusts internal investigations and rightly so. Transparency is everything. If you want respect, make your case out in the public domain where it is exposed for all to see and then defend it. If Hamilton hadn’t come out and said what happened in that meeting none of us would be any the wiser, and Rosberg would still have his Mr Nice Guy veneer suitably intact. As it stands, he has been exposed and is doing everything in his power to lessen the damage.
Well said!

F1 » Rosberg disputes Hamilton claims


physics:
TenaciousC: You mistake me for someone that is a fan of either. Neither do I have a vendetta against either driver. I loved that the incident happened as Dan Ricciardo was able to capitalise!! The more this season goes on, the more I like the lad! The contact at best occurred at the transition between the two corners. To me it is still the right hand corner and I base this on Nico's steering angle (can't see Lewis'). The pair were nowhere near the apex of the left turn when contact was made. Nico had sufficient track available to position his car so he would avoid an incident. Subsequently, in my opinion the blame lies at Nico's feet.
I am also glad for Dan, if he can manage to top at least one of the mercs drivers it will be an epic rookie season!
I concur! Fingers crossed he crashes the party :) C'mon Dan!
