Formula 1 - F1 - Current Season Discussion - Page 27
i think they should not have any rules stipulating whether there should be team orders or not; since F1 is all about technicalities, developing cars outside the rules, bending the rules, etc., what happens if a team order is made but the driver doesn't obey? should he be reprimanded/penalised? it's stupid.
the second half of this season has been great - it looks like it's going to be a climatic end to the season, remiscent of 2007, 2008 and 2010. by far the most impressive driver this season has been Raikkonen - hasn't won a race yet but is 3rd in the race.
Couldnt disagree more. The 1st half of the season was probably the best F1 ever.
Since midseason its been drab Red Bull domination again. Vettel leading start to finish 4 races in a row and you think thats exciting? Pretty boring.
No kidding. Red Bull 1 - 2 again is really tiresome.
By the way, the SMOG in India is just beyond belief. Its disgusting. That air was so dirty it almost looked like fog. F1 needs to reconsider this, last year was really bad but this year the smog was even worse. It makes the sport look really shitty racing in the midst of all that pollution.
I too want to see Kobayashi stick around. Its true he has not evolved much but he is fun to have on the track.
Massa did fuck things up, but I dont believe any driver should willingly be paired with Alonso. He's a major league asshole and dominates the team completely. You'd never get a sniff.
Webber chops two guys at the apex (and rejoins the track unsafely): No penalty. Perez does it to one guy: Stop and go. At least that lantern-jawed fuck got some karmic justice.
Kimi is a racer's racer. Loved how he basically told his engineer to shut the fuck up.
Vettel benefitted from being able to optimize his setup for the race, but helluva drive. Alonso must be dumbfounded.
Heikki: Most likely racing for his seat next year, and nearly did it. Too bad, really.
"Just leave me alone, I know what I'm doing"
Ha ha, that was brilliant. Well deserved. Nice to see another winner.
For a pretty pedestrian 2nd half of the season, this was a great race.
Too bad for Hamilton. It was his.
