Daniel Ricciardo

Recommended Posts

its suggested that Ricciardo is leading the race for seat 2 @ Red Bullsh.

don't do it Daniel... you don't want to be trained into being a backup, for others... hold onto your dreams.

wait for the merry go round to settle, & try for a seat @ Mclaren or Mercedes...

mmmm I think they are all similar drvers

but hes now qualifying better ,which seems to be the trick these days

you have to be spot on in qually because the car is set up for race day,the cars that are set up just for qually tend to go backwards on raceday,also DR has learned to look after his tyres better as more experience and laps are totalled

I didn't get to watch last weekends race but i see he started 7th on the Grid and managed to hold that position at the end. He's getting better

yep, & he might be getting some nice bits as well, to help his confidence.

electronics, & telemetry.... the mind boggles what they could do with that stuff, they can get tyre air pressures live, & temp's, Imagine how they could change the mapping on the run,,, up, or down. timing, etc...

Upload an engine program map upgrade live, over the air ?

I'd say it's a pretty good move now, given his is the only non Mercedes race winner.

its working out nicely for Ricciardo with the changes made in F1, the V6 turbo's & changes to traction control etc. Vettell doesn't seem to be handling driving by the arse of his pants. now he's leaving even better.

I hope Alonso gets a better drive for 2015... would love for him to go to Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 to put it up the egocentric Nico Rosberg, but maybe more likely to McLaren.

I had the pleasure of attending a race overseas for the first time ever. I chose to go to Spa because I was staying in Maastricht (south Holland) and it was only 1 hour by train to the track. I got there on the Sunday morning without at ticket. As I went to stand in the rather ample que, a pommy bloke tapped me on the shoulder and said he had a grandstand ticket. I said how much and he said 200eu...i said na its ok the general admission was 120eu so I was fine. But he said ok his friend didnt show and he would take 120eu ....(you have to be careful in Europe because people do sell forged or copied tickets)....so i said if he came in with me id buy it inside....he was ok with that and guess what.....front row gold 2 grandstand on the straight that looks up the Eu Rouge hill. You can see the track for about 2 kms. WoW it was so fantastic.....the poms who got me the ticket were frantically barracking for Hamilton...(had to hide my laughter when he crashed into Rosberg).....and of course our Dan had a stirring victory.

agreed AKA... not so inspiring.  like most pro sport in recent years, the money people seem to be wrecking all topline sports.  they all seem to be sterilized of creativeness, & programmed for a certain person to win the race all the time...

 

for chrissies sake,   lets get back to one car teams,  PLEASE !!!  then there cannot be team rules, to Fuuukk up the sport.

Not just 1 car teams, just let them go for it, stop trying to equalize it.  Many wonderful things have come from the creative minds of F1 engineers, now they are being held back and told not to think outside the box but concentrate on how to manipulate whats inside it.

I would still love to see the return of ye old days, manual gear boxes, no brake bias adjustments or rolls bar adjustments, 0 telemetry to the pits so cars aren't very very expensive RC cars.  But it will never happen, and in a way i am ok with that, so long as progress can be made and innovative designs and ideas can be out in the open and celebrated as achievements.

yes its become just another Brand game instead of the real thing.  all about the driver/racers & their expertise, including some mechanical knowledge & racecraft.

 

the engineers need to stay out of it during the Race & do their work between races.   Thats where they should be...   its not a Moon mission for NASA.

I don't mind the telemetry, as long as its only sending from the car,  & not receiving...   so the teams can't change mapping,   up or down,  possibly [censored]-ling the non-preferred driver.

one car garages, with more teams on the grid,  & cars built to survive the race. & then we will see racing & no team rules or sponsors favourites in teams.

I think F1 should be open to both 2 car and single car entrants. Single car if you don't have the finances but you can still make it if you have a good design team. Also it should be open to as many teams that can put a car on the grid and qualifying becomes just that, the top 20 or so cars get to start the race. If a top team has car troubles they may miss out on the race.

The other thing I would like to see are some of the restrictions removed to allow innovation, this used to be used by car companies as an advantage in their manufacturing and sales. One I would like to see is engine size and configuration, instead of specifying the engine and recovery system it would be better to specify the amount of fuel you can use for the race and qualifying and allow the engineers to come up with the best and most economical power unit. This type of technology can then be feed back to the car companies, in turn they can become more involved again.

the problem with the 2 car teams strategy,  is the strategies...

 

it brings all sorts of tactics from the pits literally.    riding shotgun for team mate, holding up traffic.  whilst team-mate makes a break.  

I want to see drivers drive to win,  & not to aid their favourite compatriot.

 

 I like your thoughts on the petrol restrictions & to allow design to be creative,   but within a $pend cap on development.

Second disappointing start in a row from Daniel.

Seems not to want to push Max ....

Perhaps he just expects Max' car to fail as it has so many times this year.

Other than the last few laps it was a bit of a yawn fest but at least there was minor excitement for a few minutes.

Love F1 but it does seem to be slowly dying as a race even if the spectacle and hype are still there on occasions.

Will be interesting what the new owners do.

~If Daniel wins tonight in Azerbaijan and Vettal finishes lower than 5th and Hamilton lower than 2nd, then Dan will be leading the Championship for the 1st time ever.The track suits the Red Bulls and theres nothing between them on pole times. Should be a good race tonight. Link for race:

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
