I don't think Red Bull can lose this now. Its going down to the very last 2 races and Ferrari is coming out with updates that don't seem to be working. Red Bull gets 3 whole days of testing this week and you know that everything they are doing at Abu Dhabi is to make their car as best as it can be for Texas in a week. Ferrari took their test earlier in the year. It just seems like this is working out perfectly for Red Bull.

Raikkonen has made 500 T-shirts displaying his radio message to give to the Lotus team.

Probably. RBR was doing some serious aero testing too. :wtc:

Also, I'm sure the bendy nose is worth something. No way a F1 team would implement that sort of trick if it wasn't a benefit.

The surprise is that they apparently have an interested buyer....:mamoru:

On a side note, JEV's contract was extended. $5 says the Ricciardo ends up in the Alguersari unemployment line after the safety car slow up.

Had to read that twice, for a second I misread that JEV's contract was worth $5 :mamoru:

If Mastershits cans Ricciardo for that incident then F RB's mgmt, I will never root for that team again.
Vettel got pissy for shit he always does when he is the guy directly behind the safety car.

You know who I would put in the seat next to Kimi next year? Heikki.

They get along great and Heikki is fast and consistent. His slow car these past few years doesn't show what he's capable of but he qualifies great and races pretty well.

Heikki is a good midfielder, but Kimi isn't going to be racing forever and they need to stick with and develop Grosjean, who has raw talent but is a diamond in the rough.

Funny turn of events, now Kobayashi is in the running for a seat next to Kimi because he is MORE CONSISTENT..

Kobayashi linked to Grosjean's seat

I'd rather see any number of drivers than Heikki, maybe Kobayashi, Hymen or even Sutil.
