2013 Korean Grand Prix - Formula 1

Post by bigdc48 on Tue Oct 01, 2013 5:46 pm

Sebastian Vettel is on pace (unfortunately) for his 4th straight Formula 1 world championship after winning his 3rd straight race overall and 3rd straight at Singapore. Can anyone stop the Vettel train at Korea? Maybe not.

A news item: Jules Bianchi Tweets a confirmation that he will be staying with Marussia for 2014.

And guess who Sauber confirms talks with?


















Rubinho.

It seems he can't stay in one place as of recent.

In other related news, the Alonso to McLaren rumour has spun up again. I'd say it's unlikely, but it's possible. And, if it happens, Checo will be without a drive.

Sauber denied that Barrichello would get a shot with them in 2014 -- good riddance -- I hope that team becomes Team Russia with Sirotkin/Petrov. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

It looks like a Vettel walkover, and as happy as I am for Vettel, this race will probably be an alternative to melatonin as a sleeping aid...

Monisha Kaltenborn didn't want to immediately shoot down talks with Rubens because she "was trying to be nice." How sweet.

I might want to hold that thought.  From what I am seeing, it is raining at the track, if Weather Channel is correct.

Then again, last I said that, the Italian Grand Prix ran completely dry

Edit: Looking at a radar map, it looks like there is rain in the area, but moving north

Antics like that happen in Super GT races all the time. The track marshals have a special flag to show a medical/safety vehicle is on track. But they are crazy Japanese medical/track crews with nerves of adamantium.

Calling it right now, Vettel will win all the remaining races of the year.

If he does, I honestly won't care at all. He's the one that gets the better equipment which is why he's the best driver out there right now.

Vettel isn't finished yet, by the end of his career, he's going to probably surpass Schumacher in wins and championships.

I think he's good enough to go on in F1 for another 10 years, he could win 5 more championships IMO if he wins 4 in a row this year.

Up until the safety car(s), it seemed to be following the same trend as the previous Grand Prix here. After the safety car, I'd say it's one of the best races this year. Hulkenberg was the best driver out on the track, with pressure from 2 world champions behind him in race winning cars most would expect him to have made a mistake but he stayed calm. That's something that Vettel does very well too, every lap he was perfect.

The Korean marshals seem worse trained than those of the 70s, it took them a looooong time before anyone got to Mark Webber's car and when someone did show up, they decided to completely drown the car in foam. Mark Webber made an attempt to stop him destroying the remaining equipment inside of the car, but the fool continued.

Not quite sure what was happening on the lead up to the second safety car scratch A Jeep briefly deposed Vettel from the lead of the race...



Please move the races back to Europe...it's a shame really, the circuit in Korea is actually quite an interesting and (from a drivers perspective) quite a fun track.

Is this a reminder of the terrible show up of crowds when the Turkish GP was still around?

I'm guessing my friend Steven didn't do a good job at training the Koreans. He's a track marshall here, and he got invited to work and train for the first two Korean GP's.
