F1 2014 Guessing Game

  1. can't watch live I'll be sleeping so NO SPOILERS UNTIL SUNDAY NIGHT OK
  2. Just a reminder to newcomers that you can edit your picks freely all the way up til saturday qualifying begins, after which you will be given a percentage penalty for editing.
  3. I can't watch live either but that's because I don't have Sky, and the BBC don't have this race live <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    Well, I could listen to it on the radio, but that doesn't seem like a good option.
  4. Best point about these cars: they are genuinely a lot harder to drive, you can really see the drivers working hard. Driver skill will play a much greater part.

    Worst point: present reliability issues meaning cars are doing less running on track. Hopefully this gets sorted soon.
  5. Seeing Vettel sliding it sideways into and out of corners - loving these engines.

    So many cars struggling to put the power down with all the extra torque. Great to watch.

    The Mercedes engine sounds great but the Renault is rather dull. Haven't seen enough Ferrari onboard footage to judge their engine yet.

    Red Bull seem to have improved their reliability and speed which is great for the spectacle.
  6. I remember when I followed F1 like crazy, back in the day when it was Michael Schumacher vs Kimi Raikkönen and they were always fighting about first place, and at the end of each race the engine or gearbox or something would break in Kimi's McLaren.

    Does this still always happen? Nowadays I don't know shit. Also, how will the Swede do?
  7. the last few seasons with the V8s have produced extremely reliable cars, with retirements due to mechanical problems being few and far between (and pretty much non existent for the top teams). It seemed like there were more retirements through tyres disintegrating than there were gearbox/engine failures.

    This season we could see more mechanical failures due to the complexities of the new power units
  8. Here's my picks. I gotta beat webber f1 racer this year. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    2- Sebastian Vettel
    3- Fernando Alonso
    4- Nico Rosberg
    5- Daniel Ricciardo
    6- Jenson Button
    7- Kimi Raikkonen
    8- Valtteri Bottas

    PC: 4
  9. Loving the brake-by-wire and more rear axle regen. So many #$%# ups into corners
  10. Hamilton

    Retirements: 10
  11. ROS

  12. ROS

  13. Wow, Vettel just got smoked by Ricciardo in Q2, and that's understating the situation. Every lap he was P1/P2. Every Vettel lap was shit.

    Edit<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>ne more unexpected benefit of the turbos - you could hear the crowd roaring when Vettel got knocked out lol.

    Edit: and Vettel probably could as well LOL.
  14. Was amazing.
  15. do you plan to excel all that shit with diagrams and stuff or just plain web 1.0
  16. yeah that was a great qualifying session.
  17. look at last years thread. pretty graphs and everything
  18. Damn, seven retires will not be enough...

    <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  19. Even DNFs could get to points...
  20. Lol Ricciardo "I'm tripping balls right now"

    Pretty entertaining race, especially the first half. A little concerning that the cars are so spread out though.
  21. Nice race, love the engine note.
    Very surprised by Magnussen
  22. Yeah I enjoyed that race.

    We'll have to see what happens with the possible red bull disqualification
  23. I have not seen it yet, anyone have a link to where I can see it?

    Daniel Ricciardo disqualified from Australian Grand Prix

    It was nice while it lasted. Five hours after Daniel Ricciardo had created history by becoming the first local driver to stand on the podium at home in a world championship Grand Prix, the Red Bull Racing driver was disqualified for a technical infringement that brought a frown to the ever-smiling Australian's face for the first time all week in Melbourne.

    Ricciardo handled the pressure of being the sole Australian on the grid at his home Formula One race for the first time in the wake of Mark Webber's retirement with aplomb, qualifying a career-best second in a downpour on Saturday and showing remarkable composure to finish in the same position 24 hours later.

    But as the ecstatic Albert Park fans headed into the night and the Formula One travelling roadshow packed its bags for the next round in Malaysia, news emerged that Red Bull was being investigated under article 5.1.4 of the sport's technical regulations for exceeding "consistently the maximum fuel flow of 100kg per hour".
