Sad but the rumours were true, just hope Ricciardo will follow in his footsteps or better yet make new ones

Rumours are that Danial Ricciardo will go from torro rosso to red bull.

Why do people ask "What the hell were you thinking?"
Obviously I was thinking I was going to get away with it and not have to explain it....

Rumours are that Danial Ricciardo will go from torro rosso to red bull.

Problem is his teammate jean Eric Vergne has had a slight upper hand on him this year.

The biggest problem for Daniel is that Red Bull a rumoured to be chasing Kimi Räikkönen as Vettels temmate.

As much as I'd love to see Ricciardo in a top seat the thought of Red Bulls golden boy being teamed with the man who does not give a flying **** about anything or anyone is mouth watering.  Poor old Seb would have his hands full and head spinning next year!

So that probably means Ricciardo is the favorite, as Seb would be pushing hard for another Aussie teammate, as he's already easily had the wood over one...

As an avid follower I agree with this.

I truly hope Kimi gets the drive and gives Vettel a run for his money, which I admit won't be easy.

I don't think Kimi has that extra 1% that makes a bloke like Vettel............only one I can think of who has is Alonso  !!

And he ain't gonna leave Ferrari in a hurry !!

Another bloke who I thought had it was Hamilton, but now I'm not so sure !!

The youngun Riccardo is doing quite well.

Still 20 laps to go, but sitting at 7th, aint that bad for a 2nd driver for torro rosso team, not when you look at the experience and teams of the drivers in front of him.

Pity his team never bothered to give him fresh tyres at the last safety car.  Poor bloke ended up getting monstered by world champions!

Still a great effort and the best way to put your case forward for MW's seat.

Quote from: Paul (SA)
It has to be said...despite KERS and DRS and control tyres, F1 continues to be the most over rated snoozefest of a sport going around. You can hardly call it a sport, more a procession of over priced, over hyped rubbish going round and around and around.


... and to fine a driver for doing a burnout infront of the crowd and putting on a show and celebration (aren't they the PAYING customers .. oh hang on TV rights are what they want) it just goes to show it is a rubbish sport.



and webber once again.. DNF..

My god last night was boring!!

Half the cars are simply uncompetitive, most of the spectator stands were empty and you couldn't see most of the time due to the smog. India is such a Shithole!

Bring back production car racing i say. I was to young to drive back in those days but the idea of watching the cars race on sun and buying them in showrooms mon is very appealing.

F1 waste of time & effort by all involved . Just who wants a car that takes 6 blokes to start it , 5 blokes to watch so it dosent crap out , 4 blokes to change tyres , 3 blokes to fuel it , 2 blokes to manage the pit crew  & 1 bloke to rush to a prang or break down short of the pits  . That's 21 blokes with nothing better to do with their time  8) :cheers:
