Shame for Ricciardo really, but this is more important than one driver getting a podium. Red Bull have finally been put in their place!

Re: F1 2014 Championship Thread

I feel sorry for Ricciardo, but not for Red Bull. I'm not surprised that the decision went in favour of the FIA/Race stewards. Red Bull threw away some more or less certain points (even Horner admits they likely would have finished 5th) had they followed the stewards instructions. Who knows maybe this decision will come back to bite them at the end of the season in the WCC.

Re: F1 2014 Championship Thread

Ricciardo really deserves better, doesn't he? He comes into a team that revolves around Vettel, and despite getting screwed over repeatedly through no fault of his own, still has a massive grin on his face and still manages to make Vettel look average. Maybe he wouldn't have got the podium if Red Bull had played by the rules, but he's still doing an impressive job imo.

Anyway, bring on this weekend! F1, BTCC and WEC marathon

Re: F1 2014 Championship Thread

It'll be interesting to read the full judgement of the court of appeaL. The fuel sensor may or may not have had a fault. But perhaps what really did Red Bull in was ignoring an instruction from the stewards. Most sports don't take teams/competitors ignoring the Ref kindly.

Re: F1 2014 Championship Thread

Well unsuprisingly it's yet another dominat Mercedes win, though I somehow suspect that Lewis was managing his time at the front and could easily have won it by an even bigger margin. But well done to Alonso for brining the Ferrari home third. Ricciardo once again beats his team mate who seems to have a problem following orders (at least initally). Sure we want to see them racing but as team orders are legal, and drivers are employees they arn't they obliged to obey them? You try disobeying your boss in your job you'll soon find yourself in trouble. He also didn't seem happy when Kobyashi unlapped himself and pulled away, just as Lewis did a few years back. Since when was unlapping yourself when you are faster against the rules?


But a somewhat farcical end to the race with the chequered flag being shown too early.

Since Vettel decided the rules don't apply to him because of his magic finger.

Re: F1 2014 Championship Thread

Well it's time for Round 5, and the start of the European part of the season, and it look likes that the updates the teams have brought have more or less kept the situation the same at least in regards to Merceds being at least a second ahead of the rest of the field and who knows they might have more if they aren't piushing the enginge to 100%. The gap in the rest of the field might have narrowed a bit as the Williams of Bottas did well, even the McLaren on Hard tyres making it through to Q3.

Vettel must be wondering he has to do, first the wiring loom has to replaced, on his new old chasis, then his team mate out qualifiyes him again and he has to take a 5 place grid drop for a change of gearbox.

Still no points are awarded on Saturday.

So Rosberg ruins his own lap and forces Hamilton to back off in the process due to yellows. What a dickhead. It's just like when Schumi parked up at Rascasse...

Re: F1 2014 Championship Thread

It'll take a double Mercedes non finish for Williams to actually win, but yes, I would say a podium is a possibility. Lets see how that qualifying performance translates to race pace though. Bottas has been finishing strongly recently and has shown on a couple of occasions he can just about keep up with the Red Bulls.

I think the most likely result is that the top 3 qualifying will be the top 3 finishers, possibly with a swap around at the very top.

Hamilton really needs to put Britney in his place this weekend.

The questions is will the wall of champions claim anyone this race?

Re: F1 2014 Championship Thread

Rosberg escapes a penalty for going straight on to stay in the lead, almost loses it on an outlap, has a terrible stop, has the same reliability issues as Hamilton, yet he's on course for a win while Hamilton is out of it? What a farce. I'm done with this race.

Agree, Roesberg should have got at least a 5 second penalty for gaining an advantage, but congrats to Ricciardo for his first win.
