  1. 2013 Grid

    The thing that surprises me most with Ma Qing Hua is how did he get a super licence to be allowed to take part? He has done nothing in his career to suggest that he deserves one or a capable of racing in F1. I remember the battle Raikkonen had to get one because he had only started 13 single seat races - but even he was more qualified
  2. Monza

    Senna is not driving a Ferrari and Di Resta is not in a championship battle with a Ferrari
  3. Monza

    While comparing what Vettel did to what Grosjean did is fair, it was in completly different circumstances. The problem with Grosjean (and Maldonardo) is that they do this sort of thing all the time. I have just read that Grosjean has been involved in 7 first lap incidents in 12 races this year and while I dont think he has been banned for what happened in Belgium (more what COULD have happened) he defiantly needs to learn the old saying that you cant win a race at the first corner, but you can lose it. This was a first offence for Vettel, if he contiunes to be involved in incidents that could cause injury then I am sure that a ban will follow for him too.

  5. Future F1 Calendar

    If they did that they would have to specify which direction the 'fans corner' went in, theres nothing worse that designing a track and then realising that they two ends to not meet up
  6. Monza

    The difference is the rule that when you have another driver alongside you, you have to leave a cars width between yourself and the edge of the track, when Alono pushed Vettel last year that rule was not in place, when Vettel (alegedaly) pushed Alonso this year they rule was....not that I agree with either the rule or the penalty, i is just one step away from IndyCars 'no blocking' rule, which I hope we dont see introduced, F1 has already stolen enough bad rules from IndyCar
  7. V8 Supercars / Supertourers

    This is my first year of following the Aussie V8s. I occasionally took half an interest in Bathurst to see the BTCC drivers and other international co-drivers that they use but I decided to following closer this year following last years race. It could still be anyone of the top four that takes the title, and the team strategy in the last few events is going to be fasinating if it stays as close as it is.
  8. European Touring Car Championships

    Chevy pulling out of the WTCC may be a bad thing for the series commercially, but with Honda manufacturer coming in, they should be battling with the SEATs for next years championship with the BMWs and Fords getting closer it will be a much better season with more competition for wins . DTM is the best Touring Car series now, after years of Mercedes Vs Audi, BMW has come in a really stirred things up
  9. Generic Btcc Thread

    Bartrum has a point about Plato, is he wasnt a 'star' driver he would have been banned for years of running other drivers off the track. The problem the BTCC has, with Mat Jackson getting used to the NGTC car for next year, Plato is the only one who can get anywhere near the three Hondas in race one or two
  10. 2012 Motogp

    2013 is going to be a great year with Perdosa/Marquez Vs Lorenzo/Rossi - got to favour Yamaha in that one if they keep away from each other but 2012 is far from over, and after the increadable finish last time out, with Pedrosa taking the win on the line from Lorenzo and the much stronger team mate Pedrosa is gonig to come from behind and take the title
  11. Strange F1 Rumors Of The Past

    I know the one about Greg Moore going to McLaren in 2000 is not true, before his death he has signed to go to Penske in the IRL, the drive that was taken by Helio Castroneves. Moores name was crossed out on the contact and replaced in ink with Castroneves, as that was the cause of the legal problems he had a couple of years ago
  12. 2013 Grid

    The 2013 silly season is proving to be one of hte best for years - we have two or possibly three seats avalaible at top four teams, here is how i see it: Red Bull - Sebastien Vettel and Mark Webber confirmed McLaren - Jenson Button confirmed, Lewis Hamilton possible unless he decides to move with Di Resta or Rosberg in line to replace him if he does Ferrari - Fernando Alonso confirmed, Felipe Massa looking as if he is on the way out, Sergio Perez is the only option for me, but they say he needs more experience - after Malaysia and especially today they must reconsider. Other options; Nico Hulkenberg, Nico Rosberg, Paul Di Resta Mercedes - Nico Rosberg confirmed, Michael Schumacher possible unless he decides to retire. I dont think he will but if he does Paul Di Resta will be number one choice to replace him (assuming Hamilton stays at McLaren), failing that Nico Hulkenberg, or Timo Glock Lotus - Kimi Raikkonen confirmed, Romain Grosjean likley to retain the second seat, but Heikki Koverlainen, Timo Glock and Jerome D'Amborisio are contenders - or possible outside shout for Kevin Korjus? Force India - Paul Di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg confirmed, unless they are poached by a bigger team, Juiles Bianchi to step up if one of them moves upwards. Sauber - nothing confirmed, will proberally keep the Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayasi unless Perez moves to Ferrari, Jaime Alguersuari or Charles Pic in line to replace him Toro Rosso - nothing confirmed, but Jean-Eric Vergne and Daniel Ricciardo will be kept on, the next generation of Red Bull Juniors, Danill Kyvat and Carlos Sainz Junior are nowhere near ready yet. Williams - For as long as Maldonardo brings money Williams will employ him, Bruno Senna has improved this season but both are under massive pressure from Valterri Bottas. Caterham - Would like to keep Heikki Koverlainen but he is wanting to move to the front of the grid, Vitaly Petrov is likley to stay - if one does move on Giedo Van Der Garde for their GP2 team or Alexander Rossi from their World Series team should get the drive. Marussia - Timo Glock is under contract but could be poached away by a bigger team, Charles Pic should be kept on if he is also not taken by a bigger team, possible replacement driver Max Chilton from the Marussia sponsored Carlin GP2 team HRT - Pedro De La Rosa is under contact, he will be joined by Dani Clos, Daniel Juncadella or Ma Qua Hua
