I'm a Ferrari fan, and always have been, no matter who the drivers are. So of course I'm predicting a win for Ferrari at Silverstone biggrin.gif

I used to hate Hamilton, but ever since he stopped winning, I like him lol!!! tounge.gif

Now the team that I absolutely hate is Redbull! I can't stand Vettel!!! I don't particularly like Webber too...

Just saw now, Mark Webber is leaving F1 at the end of the season to join Porsche sports team, which returns to Le Mans next year. Last time he was driving at Le Mans in a Mercedes #4 this happened due to an aerodynamic fault:

This was the second flip for Webber that week (He flipped in practice too), later the #5 Mercedes being driven by Peter Dumbrek also flipped, this time going over the barriers into the trees. He walked away from the crash:

Mercedes #6 was withdrawn after the last crash.
Allan Simonsen wasn't as lucky as them last weekend. May his soul rest in peace.

Coming back to F1, who do you guys think will be Webber's replacement? Kimi?

Sad to see Webrar go; I couldn't stand him at first, but after he went to Red Bull and started seeing some success, I developed some fondness for him, and he eventually became my favourite driver on the grid (especially since Nick Heidfeld left F1).

And, yeah, Kimi's my pick, too. I wonder how he'll get along with Vettel?

I also like Webber but I'm not a fan of RBR. If Kimi takes his spot..well I will have a lot of internal conflict. Kimi + Lotus is perfect imo.

I'm sure Vettel and Kimi will get along fine (off the track at least) as they already seem to be quite friendly with each other from what I've seen. It will make for some interesting races though with Kimi in a race winning car.

I'd like to see Kimi go to red bull next year. he deserves a car that can win races consistently and that can win championships, lotus are a good team but I don't see them doing well enough in the next few seasons to win any championships.

I agree. But still skeptical on how Vettel will react iof he is challenged for the first driver spot in RBR.

I like Lotus, and they're growing... apparently they're getting the largest aero package in Silverstone history or something... I hope they improve... all they need to do is fire Grosjean.

I hope not. I like Kimi but hate RBR and Vettel.

So I hope Perez is Webber's replacement. Perez seems to cause a lot of accidents....so he'll be perfect for RBR lol devil.gif

Vettel has a say regarding the question, who will become his new team mate. And he will probably not choose Kimi Räikkönen. Instead he will go for a weaker team mate.

Excellent race today full of incident, I think Pirelli will be keeping a low profile over the next few days. Di Resta did well considering he was demoted to the back and I was so hoping that Webber could have sneaked past Rosberg and taken the win, would have been a cheeky up yours to Red Bull.

Sarcasm in pictures at its best. Left rear tyres failing at those speeds is not a joke..worst bit is the same thing happened to Perez in practice too, obviously they did not learn their lesson then. In fact this is what they said then:
QUOTE
"It was a cut in the sidewall, which is in the direction of rotation," he told AUTOSPORT. "It is a classic unfortunate tyre deflation. Whatever it was went in, and then came out again."

Chances of it being an isolated accident seem pretty low to me now..obviously there is a chance that it might be the track too, but I don't remember this happening at Silverstone before.

On a side note, I am happy that Vettel did not finish the race today, will cut down his lead in the Championship a little. His retirement was the only one which was not due to a tyre failure, surprising considering their general reliability.

Late edit: After calming down and reading more about it, I have to admit that Pirelli were not the only one's at fault here, the people who allowed these tyres to be raced (FIA, teams who vetoed Pirelli's attempt to change tyres) are at fault too. There is a possibility that a minor change to the track like drainage system might have caused it too. By the way Gutierrez had a front left tyre problem too which damaged his front wing.

Those tyre failures look pretty serious. Who's going to be punished for this massive cock-up?

Sorry for double posting, but editing a 19 day old post seems excessive..
Any thoughts on the Red Bull Austrian Grand Prix that has been announced for next year?

Well I thought that since the season has restarted now with the Belgian GP that it was time this topic went back up to the top of he page. The obligatory Vettel victory again means that he is now in the lead over Alonso by 46 points, Hamilton by 58 points, and Raikkonen by 63 points. Time for Red Bull to put the champagne on ice I reckon, just so that it ends up perfectly chilled for when the inevitable happens...

Yet another win for Vettle at Monza, though I did enjoy watching him get booed by the Tifosi. Also, just found out that Kimi has signed with Ferrari for next year (though they haven't officially anounced it yet), thoughts? Personally I can't wait!

Indeed, if the rumours are true, Kimi will have real chances to win the next season  :)

Couldn't have happened at a better time either, what with the change to V6 turbo engines, it should even the field slightly. Part of me wanted to see him at Red Bull just so he could compete with Vettle in the same car, but I'm glad he's moving to Ferrari, it means I can actually root for him. Though I can't imagine Alonso is too happy about it. I wonder who is going to take his seat at Lotus.

It's sad to see Kimi leave Lotus. I've never been particularly fond of Ferrari but if they can end RBR dominance then I'm all for it.

So Vettel can win the world championship at the next race in Japan if he wins and Alonso finishes lower than 8th. Didn't get up to watch the race live today but from what i've heard it was another dominant pole to win race for Vettel, it's really starting to make things boring now. Hopefully things pick up before the end of the season, we all know Vettel is going to win though.

I hope Sergio Perez can get a seat for next year. He's a good and interesting driver and could actually match Button now and then this year. I have heard Perez is a candidate for a Force India seat next year.

Bottas is one of the most talented Finnish drivers in F1, should keep an eye on him. If he's given a better car, he will do wonders.

Nose cones look odd, looks like the Mclaren has wang and the Lotus has a camel toe.
