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.

Bump......!

~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:

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen
