China 2014

Post by da silva on Sat Apr 19 2014, 19:26

So far this year has been fantastic, it helps being a Lewis fan, but what a great lap to take pole. With Nico spinning it looks like his caged has been rattled.
If Lewis wins it'll be the first time he's ever won three in a row. Should be interesting to watch Nico battle with the Red Bulls.
Daniel was impressive again, I have nothing but positives to say about him so far this season, he's becoming a regular thorn in Seb's side.
Kimi, tsk tsk. Although the Ferrari looked promising in the dry, I'm sure Alonso will collect some useful points as usual.

Watch that Dani Kvyat too.
The kid's the real deal IMHO.

Agreed, Kvyat has been impressive at every track so far.

LOL - Finger Boy got stuffed again by Danny Ric!  Cool 

Good result for Nando - shame that Stefano couldn't have ridden-out the storm and enjoyed the start of Ferrari's recovery.
And Kimi: either unlock that talent of yours, or step aside for The Hulk, will you?

Some rumours of the Chequered Flag being waved at Lewis on the second-to-last lap...
Might upset the result of Bash's overtake on Bianchi.

I watched the last five laps of the race. Obviously nothing much happening at that point, but it really is strange with the sound of the cars now. I suppose you get used to it, but you get a feeling that they are on the warm up lap or something.

Great race.

Lewis was impeccable.
Alonso fantastic.
Daniel outstanding.

Kvyat impresses again.

I like the power unit sounds, plus I can now plan on attending an event with my kids without fear of damaging their hearing!

Kamui lost the position due to the checkered flag mistake. However hearing "Sebastian let Daniel by he is faster than you" is spectacular. We did see Seb play games with the pass, and make a comment that seemed to indicate he wasn't going to let him pass. Will Buxton interviewed him, and Seb claimed he didn't under stand the request. Total crap, but finger boy is cracking.

The comment was "Tough Luck." Plus Seb has said he let him by when he learned he was on a different strategy. Not that he was going to let him by when the team told him to do it.

TC, I thought that comment was amusing, although he claims he didn't hear properly after the race. Hahaha.

The engine sounds are a little disappointing when track-side, especially when the Porsche Carrera Cup cars have a great sound impact (let alone a V8 Supercar). I didn't get the 'wow' factor as I had previously.

On the plus side, you can hear lock-ups and hear the trackside commentary.

Yeah the year the cars are as quiet as a church mouse, he can't hear his radio.
