2014 Hungarian Grand Prix - F1

Post by bigdc48 on Tue Jul 22, 2014 6:39 pm

The F1 train goes to Hungary at the Hungaroring for race 11 of the 2014 season. It's also the last race before the month-long summer break before Belgium in late-August.

Nico Rosberg, the points leader  Cool , won last week at Germany and has a 14-point advantage on teammate Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton, btw, won this particular race last year in dominating fashion.

What will happen Sunday?

HAMILTONWINSLOL, most likely. This is probably his best/2nd best track, along with Montreal.

Rosberg wins another pole, as Hamilton had a fuel leak, and his car caught fire, dropping him out of Q1. Raikkonen also failed to make it out of Q1 (F1 Rejects Tweeted that he's the favorite for Reject of the Year), being knocked out by Bianchi.

Not gonna say it always happens to Hamilton but it always happens to Hamilton. Very Happy 
Also I might consider Massa or Vettel for reject of the year as well, but I lean more towards Massa.

Kevin Magnussen will start from pit lane after crashing during Q3.

Hamilton needed a new chassis and will also start from pit lane.

Maybe be a little bit faster? Like, I never expected him to be always on pace with Alonso, but 7 tenths down on your teammate who ran the same qualifying strategy, when neither of you had any car issues, is a bit pathetic for a former World Champion, regardless of anything else. Sure, Ferrari bungled the strategy for him, but if Kimi was just a single tenth faster he would've scraped through.

Easy to say but the car clearly does not suit him at all, he's had many problems with the car especially in comparison to Alonso.

Well, if he can't drive the car, that's his problem, in my opinion. Alonso's not having difficulty getting that car amongst the Red Bulls, so it's not that the car's that bad. Kimi was within a couple tenths of Alonso in the practice sessions.

But a car feels different for each individual. Perrhaps it suits Alonso driving style whereas Kimi cannot get the car to work with him. And practice is practice, the situation is entirely different because you aren't under as much pressure nor are you limited by such a small.

Regardless, he was within 3 tenths of Alonso in all 3 practice sessions, except for FP1 where he was 4 tenths faster. Incidentally, that fastest time in FP1 was on the harder rubber, and would've been good enough for him to pass through Q1 without needing a second run. And Kimi Raikkonen is a former World Champion. If he can't handle the pressure in qualifying he should just hang up the helmet right now.

I'm sorry, I just cannot accept that a former World Champion losing 7 tenths to his teammate in between FP3 and qualifying, without anything on the car breaking, is anything other than his own fault. At least, mostly his own fault.

Looking at the radar.  Not a matter of if, but when.  It looks like a huge patch of rain is coming.

Looking interesting since half the track is wet, and half dry

Some guys have some brass balls... Or want wrecked cars. Some guys going on slicks

But you ignore my point that the Ferrari is suited more to Alonso than Raikkonen and that in practice you have an unlimited amount of laps virtually, meanwhile in qualifying you have one run on the single set of tyres so one mistake on your flying lap and your lap is damaged.

Brilliant drive from all podium getters, especially Alonso, to make soft compound tyres last over half a race, and nearly win is a top job.

Stunning to think that this Mercedes, which is clearly faster than any other car, has been beaten twice by the same guy. Unless he completely collapses, Daniel has pretty much nailed down third in the Drivers' Championship.

Holy crap. That win.  Shocked Those two passes were I think the loudest I've ever cheered over anything before. I wanted Alonso to win more, but I can't be displeased at all with a Dale Ricciardo win.  Very Happy 

And that save from Vettel - sure, he probably shouldn't have spun in the first place, but that was a hell of a save regardless.

Yes. Because I just cannot accept any excuse from Kimi at this stage. 7 tenths behind Alonso is completely unacceptable in my eyes. Doesn't matter if he had a mistake - he's experienced enough to not do that given that the goal was to save tyres by not doing a second run.

That said, he drove well in the race to recover back up to 6th place.

The one time I sleep though the race because I think it was going to be a Mecedeswinslol, and Ricciardo wins. Good thing NBCSN airs a re-run.

Also, step it up Vettel.

You all might think I'm nuts, but if someone stuck a "Driver of the Year" ballot in front of me, right now, I'd put a checkmark next to Daniel's name.

Absolutely. He has kept his nose clean; has two wins in his first year with the team; is third in the driver's championship; and is regularly outpacing his teammate, a four-time-champ. This guy is killing it.

I'd do the same thing.

If you told me earlier this year that Ricciardo would be better than Vettel, I would of thought that you were on drugs.

In his own defence, it was the last lap anyway. Besides I was absolutely baffled by the team orders from Mercedes. If doesn't matter if both their strategies were different, they could've just not said anything and let them race fairly.
