Spoken like an anonymous forum poster who doesn't see the bigger picture. Goes to bed after the race, then to work the following morning. Got nfi and is worried about how much he's entertained.Booo, keep driving it like you stole it Dan don't let the haters get you down.
It's not one time he goes off track, it's two in 500m. Obviously you haven't realised the season started in March and there's been 8 races so far. He's ****** up 4 times this year. That's a pattern he'd want to stop pretty quickly.He makes one move and goes off track by a whisker and you are all up in arms about him driving like a hero,
"Generally sticks them" mean you're doing it wrong a lot of the time. He was always making them happen before, and now he isn't. If he continues to **** it up, it erodes his reputation.the fact he goes for those moves and generally sticks them
You talk like winning a race in the 3rd best car is like some extraordinary achievement. You go and do your history, winning in the 3rd best car is common. In fact, even some moderately talented drivers have done it. If Ricciardo doesn't maintain a high level, even his past achievement will get lost in amongst the crap he's produced.is what makes him the guy who can win a GP with the 3rd best car and the more he does it in a Renault the more likely he will stick them as well.
You're wrong. They'll give a shit about anyone of substance. In fact, MB gave a shit about the guy who finished 8th in 2016. After 8 races, Bottas had 37pts in 2016. That's miles ahead of what Ricciardo has done this year.No one at Ferrari or Mercedes will care who finishes 7th in the WC, it is for all intensive purposes pointless.
If Ricciardo had 37pts now, he'd affirm that he's genuinely a WC prospect in a shit car. Now, he's ******* up and Verstappen is the embodiment of consistency. That's also the crap Ricciardo has to fight against. Picking off Norris wasn't worth it.
But you think a 29yo racing in the front half of F1 is like a young kid playing juniors cricket "Go on son. Get in there and have a go!"
