    If you're looking for a bit of drama, why not have Hamilton win and Rosberg finish 4th? That way Rosberg would be leading by one point going into the summer break. Also, it would allow the streak of Raikkonen finishing second everytime Hamilton wins in Hungary to continue.

    1000 disagrees on the basis that it'd be fantastic to see Vettel go the entire season without winning a race... unlike his teammate.

    Question of the Day Thread

    Reminds me of... 
  5. Discounting the races you mentioned that Vettel has had problems in, it's 4-2. Still a pretty big margin when you view the battle as 4-time WDC vs young teammate in his first season in a top team. Enough of this, though- it's off topic anyway.
  6. Number of PUs is a non-factor, really. Might stop you from doing an extra run in FP3, but you don't risk losing a position just to save the engine unless it looks like it's about to blow imminently. Whatever engine life he might have saved by not pushing so hard, he'll use up with a couple of fast laps in the next race weekend, and there goes the PU. So yes, Vettel was pushing for most of the race. Not all of it, but seriously, who does? Every driver delibrately starts the race underfuelled to save weight, then saves fuel when they can. For all meaningful intents and purposes the only driver who can claim to have not maximised the car's potential is Rosberg.
  7. I never get why people insist on putting Vettel ahead in Australia. I don't care how the FIA ranks DNFs and DSQs- Ricciardo did the full race distance while Vettel did around five laps; any reasonable person would give that point to Daniel. So the score really is 4-2. You realise you are just asking to be flamed with baiting comments like that.
  8. And for how long was Vettel behind Alonso? Only a 10+ lap stint on supersofts- and even then he would've been trying to get past seeing as he was on the superior tyre and needed to make his advantage count. Alonso's tyres also only went in the last few laps of the race after he'd gotten last Ricciardo. How much of a gap do you think Vettel would've pulled anyway?  Also, I'm most certainly not a Hamilton fan, so nothing for me to be concerned about.
  9. I'd be pretty worried (edit: if I were a Vettel fan) about the fact that Ricciardo finished less than 10 seconds behind Vettel despite being knocked down to P15 after the first lap. I doubt Vettel was pushing as hard most of the time, Ricciardo was pushing a lot because he had ground to make up.  You will always find a way to discredit Vettel so I honestly don't care.  You think Vettel wasn't pushing when he had to battle with Fernando, the Hulk, Kimi, Button and Hamilton? Ok. Well you know I didn't point out all the specifics, but whatever you say. I'd quite like to hear those specifics. Vettel was up against Alonso all race long and not till when Alonso got stuck behind Ricciardo for a few laps was P4 guaranteed. Yes, agreed. It's probably one of the better (and ironically almost completely unpublicised) rule changes in recent times. Seeing drivers pile into the hairpin three or four at a time was mega.
  10. I'd be pretty worried (edit: if I were a Vettel fan) about the fact that Ricciardo finished less than 10 seconds behind Vettel despite being knocked down to P15 after the first lap.
  11. Questionable strategy from Mercedes in assuming that there would be a Safety Car for not the most serious of incidents... but Hamilton also cost himself P2 by knocking off a bit of his front wing.
  12. Most drivers in the paddock are using Brembo brakes, same as what Hamilton was using yesterday. If it really were a safety issue, then you'd be seeing more drivers switching away from them. Incorrect. Apart from Mercedes, most of the other teams are using last years Brembo-brakes. Last year Brembo had a different supplier. The quality of this years Brembo-brakes is worse due to a different supplier and due to the fact that Brembo have outsourced most of their technical staff to manufacture brakes for airplanes for financial reasons.  Nope. AMuS says that only Ferrari (and possibly RBR, Google Translate isn't clear) are using last year's brakes.
  13. Most drivers in the paddock are using Brembo brakes, same as what Hamilton was using yesterday. If it really were a safety issue, then you'd be seeing more drivers switching away from them.
  14. No pitlane start for Hamilton despite a change of brake material. Seems bollocks to me.
