    Yes, Ricciardo is only behind Vettel because of Malaysia and Australia where he was screwed over through no fault of his own. Although Vettel retired from Australia too, I find it highly unlikely Vettel would of beaten Ricciardo there so yeah, 3-1 to Ricciardo in the races so far, which for Vettel, a 4x world champion, is truly shocking and Ricciardo would of been comfortably ahead of Vettel in the WDC.
    All speculation, you don't know what would have happened. In Australia Vettel may have made an amazing recovery drive to finish 2nd, in Malaysia Ricciardo may have just crashed or spun. We don't know what could have happened, so why bother bringing it up? As far as the FIA are concerned in Aus Ricciardo was racing an illegal car, so in Aus for me it was 0-0 and in Malaysia it was 1-0 Vettel, in Bahrain it was 1-1 and now it is 2-1 Ricciardo. 
    I think 2-1 is a fair reflection and in fact, the FIA would probably say 2-2 because a DSQ is lower than a DNF. Going on final race results, 2-2 would be the legit score, although that isn't really the case IMO.

    Vettel has had a tricky few races, but 2011 proved for me that even the best have an off season. I'm not worrying too much, you don't win 4 Titles by accident.
    Ugh, I thought a few months off from the Codies forum might put sense into you. Apparently not so.

    1. I would happily bet my whole life that Vettel would not have beaten Ricciardo in Australia. Its so obvious that it pains me to see your fanboyism can't accept that Vettel wouldn't of beaten him.

    2. Ricciardo had 7 laps left in Malayisa. He wouldn't of spun out, just accept it. There's no ifs and buts here, he plainly wouldn't off, he managed 49 laps beforehand, I fail to see why the 7 laps at the end would of been any different.

    3. The F1 results place Daniel Ricciardo ahead of Sebastian Vettel in the Australian results so yeah, out goes your logic there again. 3-1 still.

    4. Yeah you're right, you don't win 4 titles by accident. All you need is a good car and a unmotivated team mate who never grasped how to drive blown diffusers.

    Gah, I get easily frustrated by people posting ridiculous stuff.

    EDIT: I won't bother replying anymore, I don't want this thread to descend further into arguments.

    None of the seasons (other than 2011) Vettel has won has been this bad after 4 races. 2010 was great, 2012 was really good and 2013 was interesting as well. 2011 and 2014 are just dull and I'd rather not have years like that at all. 

    I know how you felt when Vettel won like this, everyone made a massive effort to say how they felt on the old forums every time he had the lead. Funny how there is less comments about dull races now after one corner has been completed. Can't think why.
    2010 was a good season and so was 2012, but a bit painful as a Hamilton fan. The whole of 2011, and most of 2013 was extremely dull. You can't throw 2014 into the same category as 2011 after just 4 races, it doesn't make any sense. 2 rounds so far this season have been okay, with one of them being the best for about 3 years in terms of action. How you can say Bahrain is dull is beyond me.

    Funny how there is more comments about dull races from Vettel fans now after one corner has been completed. Can't think why. 
    Bahrain wasn't dull it was just REALLY predictable and in my opinion that makes it boring to a certain extent (in terms of racing for the lead). It was only ever going to be Mercedes Vs Mercedes, which is how it will be all season. Even Red Bull were not this dominant. Hamilton wasn't even pushing his hardest and he got 10 seconds in 10 laps.
    2014 is boring, every lead is either Merc Vs Merc or no competition at all.

    Not a single Vettel fan came on here and commented about a Hamilton win after one corner. That legitimately happened last year when Vettel was winning.  
    Are you high or something? Bahrain was not boring or predictable. The only predictable element was a Mercedes win, otherwise no one knew out of Hamilton or Rosberg who would win. At least this championship should have a battle between 2 drivers instead of 1.

    Because the race was hilarious today when Vettel got annihilated by Ricciardo and overtaken by a Caterham. Apart from that it was pretty ok. Not as bad as I remember the Vettel dominant races but then again I hated the 2013 season.
    You see that is the issue. We had some good racing in 2013 and 2011 but because you dislike Vettel, you only remember the bit where Vettel won by 20 seconds. Vettel won in Germany in 2013 and that was one of the best races of the year.
    One good race which I happened to miss lol. Generally, 2013 was a crap year, even worse then 2011.

    I can't remember the last time a race was actually really close. Must have been June or July last year. How fun. 

    Can't complain about Lewis though, he is doing his job well. Just a shame what looked like a promising season in terms of excitement has turned into a bore-fest after 4 races. 
    So like Vettel last year?
    Well, the end of last year yes. It wasn't an exciting season pretty much from Hungary onwards. I just didn't complain much because it was coming to the end of an era in F1 and I thought we'd have a good season this year. 
    Or because your favourite driver was winning..
