2014 Formula 1 UBS Chinese Grand Prix in World of Motorsport Posted April 20, 2014 AMS97KRR said: JensonBottom said: 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.
