    Well, would you look at that. Kimi ahead of Vettel.

    1. Not bad for a number 2 driver.

      1. 2013 all over again ?

  2. Force India are breathing down the neck of Williams f1, Williams doesn’t seem to like wet conditions.

    1. Yep, that will be an interesting battle to watch.

    2. Recently, Williams doesn’t even seem to like the dry either, even at tracks which should suit them.

  3. Vettel is having his worst season in his entire career, nothing will go right.

    1. Odd numbered years > Even numbered years

      I don’t think so. Every good driver has a couple of bad races a season. I think he’s doing well enough. Ferrari is not stepping up to the plate.

      1. This. Both Vettel and Raikkonen have more points to-date if the team were more consistent with strategic choices. It’s clear both drivers are pushing hard but their cars are not complying. Just sad that it really is the car, strategy and rules/penalties that decide races now rather than driver talent.

  4. Lol, RedBull just 9 points off Ferrari in a year where Ferrari was supposed to me inching closer to Mercedes.

  5. What a talent this Kid is he has 13 Points and Ric 36 when he started with RBR and now he was already cut that down to 13 Points with a DNF more and Ric has to get a DNF yet amazing performance from Max Verstappen Driver of the 1st half for me

    1. He’s been outstanding, if Ricciardo continues this way maybe it’s time to think about putting Sainz there…

      1. Yes max has that uncanny ability to extend the tires to more laps yet delivering faster lap times and his defense in this DRS era days is a treat to watch. Also he was clearly improving and his full speed is yet to get unlocked considering he didn’t was in that car for 6 races. Verstappen should be called as Unbelievable i can only imagine how the first 4 races would be had he was in that from Day 1. And about your second point it could be cool because Sainz is doing really well this year and put max in his sight but i dont think they will make another swap between STR and RBR.

    2. 10 after Rosberg’s penalty

  6. Whatever Arrivebene says, Ferrari must be somewhat worried about keeping that 2nd place in the WCC. I think they are out-gun’ed through strategy, driver quality and even reliability.

      I think it will be history after Hungary, @me4me
      both RBR cars only needs to finish ahead of Ferrari (in the points).

      1. hold your horses, its only half a season. pretty sure both ferraris will be ahead of them in hun without issues.

        1. Remember that Red Bull is really competitive on this track.

          They had their best race there last year there with a vastly underpowered car. My bet is that they will be ahead of Ferrari there.

  7. VES and RIC look really good to take ferrari down in both drivers and team championship.
