    t12 makes himself out to be a sage of F1. Remember when he said MS would never make a come back and was 'done' after that motorbike accident? Remember when MS made his comeback despite everything and t12 said he was over the hill and would never do any good, then got pole at Monaco? Remember when he said Nico was a hopeless driver, and MS can't even beat Nico? Remember how many times Nico beat the qualifying master Lewis in the 3 years they were together? Remember when Nico regularly beat Lewis, only just lost the title to him in the second year and beat him in the 3rd? Remember when he said Mercedes would never do any good because they're run by a board instead of a racing team? <<<<<that's probably the best one.

    and if you dared disagree with any of his wisdom, you were denigrated by him!

    it makes me laugh....and now he just trolls. What a know it all.

    Still, krafty's happy because t12 is suddenly agreeing with him! lol

    Weird comments from Lauda.

    SEPTEMBER 11, 2017

    Ferrari favourite for Singapore says Lauda

    Niki Lauda has named Ferrari as the favourite to win this weekend's Singapore grand prix.

    That is despite the fact Lewis Hamilton took over thechampionship lead at Monza last weekend, after humiliating a struggling Ferrari at its home circuit.

    Now, a thrilling title battle between Mercedes' Hamilton and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel is in the offing, with Lauda declaring: "My heart is with Ferrari but my head is with Mercedes."

    The F1 legend, who is among the most famous former Ferrari drivers, is now the chairman and co-owner of the Mercedes team.

    As for his split allegiances, Lauda told Corriere dello Sportnewspaper: "It's ok for me.

    "We won at Monza and that was a shame for Ferrari and their important event.

    "But in Singapore maybe Vettel will change things again," the great Austrian said.

    "Many times Ferrari has been faster than Mercedes. At Spa Vettel was very close. Ok, at Monza perhaps a little less, but in my opinion this was due to a mistake in the Ferrari setup.

    "Ferrari will be the favourite in Singapore," Lauda declared, "but on the other hand it is difficult to say who will win. I hope it is Hamilton."

    But if it is Vettel on top, Lauda admits that his 'heart' still beats for the Maranello team.

    "Vettel is a number 1 driver," he said. "His heart is for Ferrari and if the team is competitive, you can't discount him."

    Not really. I just don't like BSers. He was hiding behind the mod status for years. Probably won't be long before he's banned, although he does have friends in high places.

    I'm hoping we do well at Singapore, and maybe we can have a little justice and have elton try an aggressive move on bottles, and get merged into the wall somewhere around the lap, causing a Mercedes double DNF, and then Seb and Kimi drove home a clean 1-2

    Then, after the race, the stewards announce penalty points for elton for the crash, banning his for the next race, and it emerges his gearbox and engine were damaged in the crash, and he will take a 20 place grid penalty for this first race back after the suspended race.......

    OMG, I think a little bit of wee came out the I was so excited by my own dream!

    Forza ferrari

    Its all Ron Menace's fault

    Refer what Mr. Height Challenged Bernie has to say:

    “It wasn't Honda's fault things didn't work out, it was McLaren's. Every day they had a fight about everything, instead of working with them, which was a little bit stupid."
    “The Renault deal is all done. Alonso staying is super news.”

    Ricciardo to consider leaving Red Bull after 2018


    Daniel Ricciardo says he will consider leaving Red Bull if the energy drink owned team can't deliver him a title challenging car in 2018.

    The Australian has driven for the team since 2014, and before that Red Bull's junior outfit Toro Rosso.

    But he told the Sun newspaper that as he will be out of contract at the end of next year, his desire to win means he might consider leaving the Red Bull camp.

    "We have still managed to get podiums but we haven'trealistically been in thechampionship hunt so it really needs to happen with Red Bull next year -- at least from my point of view," 28-year-old Ricciardo said.

    "I've been here for quite a few years now and I think next year we need to make a bigger step next year than we did this year, to really convince me that I can win with them."

    Ricciardo said he would like Red Bull to step up with a winning car next year so he could "complete the story" after being groomed by the energy drink company.

    "Do I want to win with them? Absolutely. I think that would complete the story as well. Seb got to complete it -- he is the only guy. So my heart would love to. But we will see," he said.

    "I have got decisions to make once my Red Bull contract is up. It is the first time in my professional career that I've been a free agent.

    "The next contract I sign, whether it is an extension or a new one, it is unlikely to be for just one year, it is probably three years. So that is a big part of the next step in my career," Ricciardo added.

    Ouch!!!

    Jolyon Palmer was first alerted to losing his Renault Formula 1 seat to Carlos Sainz Jr for 2018 when he read it on Autosport.

    Renault officially announced on Friday in Singapore that Sainz will join it on loan from Red Bull next season as Nico Hulkenberg's new team-mate.

    Palmer said he only learned of the move when Autosport broke the story last Saturday.

    "I knew when I read it on Autosport," he said. "And then I knew it was true as well, I spoke to some people. That was it.

    "Of course I knew that with the job I've done this year, the team is looking for other people, because it's been a tough year.

    "But you never know until it's over. I could have felt the same way at times last year as well."

    Renault's attempts to replace Palmer with Sainz before the end of this year - possibly by the next grand prix in Malaysia - have so far come to nothing, with sources suggesting a solid contract is keeping him in the seat.

    [​IMG]

    Asked if it was a strange situation to be with a team that did not appear to want him, Palmer said: "I don't know where you understand that from, but I'm just not going to comment on that."

    He plans to take a "nothing to lose" approach to his remaining races with Renault.

    "I'm still focused on trying to do the best I can every time I get in the car," said Palmer.

    "Nothing changes, I still want to go out with my head held high, and finish the year as well as I can.

    "There's nothing to lose. It's just a chance for me to show what I can do.

    "So far this season it's been disappointing, but it's not just been disappointing on my part - I think the reliability has been very poor.

    "The car is getting stronger, certainly the next few races I think will be very strong for us.

    "The pressure is off in a way, I know I'm not staying here next year."

    Palmer insisted he has not thought about alternatives for 2018 yet.

    "I'm quite excited for next year, I know it'll be something different, I know what I'm not going to be doing," he said.

    "I've got a bit of time to try and decide. I'm not worried about anything in the future.

    "Obviously I've only known this for not that long a time. I've been focusing on staying with Renault.

    "Now obviously that isn't happening, and I can look at other opportunities inside and outside of F1.

    "I'm in no rush to decide what I'm going to do."

    Asked if Williams presented a realistic opportunity to stay in F1, he replied: "I don't know at the moment, we'll have to see.

    "Of course Williams is a great name, a team that I grew up supporting, a good old British team that dad drove for as well."
