    Great article from RIC here. Discusses where the Honey Badger came from, his first win, winning at Monaco this year and the decision to leave RBR. Well worth the read.

    Love this quote after winning at Monaco

    I remember now. I didn't see any "reasoning" in Roland's reasoning. Hence, I didn't bother to respond to all of that and let it go. I got sucked into it again!. I defy anyone else who even vaguely remembers the 08 season to back him up.

    I backed up with facts so there's nothing wrong with the 'reasoning'. You can go on nostalgia if you want but I like my history from the perspective of accuracy.

    I’d like other people, “neutrals”, to tell me if my response was one of the stupidest responses ever, or if drd is being a campaigner?

    Please tell me where I went wrong? Should I spend 3 hours dismantling roland’s “points”, or am I better off going “I just cbf”.

    Well, I wasn't going to present information to suit your pov lol. The whole forum is presentation of facts (or other) to suit the poster's pov so your statement could have been talking about anyone on any topic.

    From my pov I don't care if you attempt to dismantle my points or not. If its easier to leave it alone so be it. I've been around message boards, F1 or otherwise, to know how it goes.

    Just the way you worded it I suggest, by saying they’re just facts to suit his POV is saying there are reasons that can be proved as to why Kubica is not that great.
    Which is opposite to your opinion.

    I think it was pretty obvious to all and sundry that he was suggesting if one looks hard enough you can find a number of statistical anomalies to suit any predetermined agenda.

    It is a common occurrence on this board after all, player X averages 2.1 more yadayada.... therefore they are better!

    Don’t dissagree, just suggesting why drs May have disliked the phrase.

    That was pretty good.

    Something for Ricciardo fans to hang their hat on in 2018. Of the 12 races they both finished. Ricciardo outscored Verstappen 158 to 142.

    A lot of uncertainty next year with Renault having a completely new engine design, and the Honda being reworked for the Red Bull.

    It's kind of weird, it's all relative. These days Ricciardo's reliability would be considered chronic. but back in the early 90s it would've been considered normal. I counted for the first 16 races (16 races being a full F1 season 1991-94), he had 6 dnf with 4 of those being mechanical. I counted under the points allocation they used in 1991-94, Ricciardo would've scored 38 points.

    38pts would've got 5th in 91, 6th in 92, 5th in 93, and 4th in 94. So he's round about where he should be all things considered. In those days, the current RB would've been considered a tank!

    However in these days of bulletproof reliability, there's an ugly truth. Including all types of dnf, Ricciardo has 8. The top 5 combined have 10!

    Just watching through the rule changes for next year



    Going to be interesting to see how much slower the cars are going without all these extra little bits they are removing to increase the ability to follow. Changed front wing pretty much to a basic model, changed barge boards, front brake ducts, blown axles and the rear wing.

    I get the feeling the gap between the top and the bottom will reduce but engine power will pretty much determine who wins.
