Rosenqvist? Well, he's also competing in Super Formula. Matching Gasly quite well, too. Gasly sits on 33 points, Rosenqvist on 28.5 points. A victory for Rosenqvist while Gasly finishes third is enough for Rosenqvist to overhaul him in that final race of the season.

Also, unhappy with Malaysia. Ferrari hasn't been this dominant in a weekend for a LONG TIME, but they still end up P4 and DNS. s***.

And that is exit for Palmer, he will drive his last race tomorrow, and will be replaced by Sainz from that moment...

I think that was probably the best thing for them, Gasly appears to be rather decent (especially if his Super Formula performances are anything to go by), whilst Hartley obviously has a decent history in the WEC. I was rather surprised when Hartley was given the drive for a longer term, at 27, he's got to have been one of the oldest race debutants for quite some time.

However, they did really need rid of Kvyat...

Well, if either of them are desperate, I'm up for a challenge... I'll only take a small amount of pay to do it as well! :lol:

Alternatively either could bring back Pastor Maldonado for the lolz.

Pirelli has announced two new tyre compounds for 2018, the hyper soft and super hard. Super hard... Guys, this can definitely be said on TV next year:

Alonso has already done over 50 laps with the super hard on, can he keep it up all the way to the finish?

Am I nerdy? Yes I am. Did I compile a list of statistics after rating every driver in every race this season? Yes I did. Did I have my mate rate them too, so that we could then compile these statistics and reach an absolute rating over 2017? Yes we did.

A summary:

Our actual rating is this, awarded in F1 championship points style:

25: Sebastian Vettel, 7.915
18: Daniel Ricciardo, 7.734
15: Fernando Alonso, 7.708
12: Lewis Hamilton, 7.536
10: Max Verstappen, 7.502
8: Nico Hülkenberg, 7.487
6: Esteban Ocon, 7.322
4: Sergio Perez, 7.205
2: Felipe Massa, 7.194
1: Valtteri Bottas, 6.979
----
Outside of the top, here's the rest of this list:
11: Carlos Sainz, Jr., 6.732
12: Kimi Räikkönen, 6.724
13: Marcus Ericsson, 6.493
14: Pascal Wehrlein, 6.298
15: Romain Grosjean, 6.076
16: Stoffel Vandoorne, 5.918
17: Lance Stroll, 5.849
18: Kevin Magnussen, 5.846
19: Daniil Kvyat, 5.302
20: Jolyon Palmer , 4.786

* The driver with most 10-pointers is Lewis Hamilton, thrice by my mate (China, Britain, Belgium) and four times by me (China, Britain, Belgium, Singapore).
* The driver beaten the most thoroughly by their team mate is Palmer according to both him and I. In my eyes, Hulkenberg averaged 2.538 better than Palmer. He claims the Hulk beat Palmer by 2.857.
* The drivers most evenly matched according to him is Ericsson and Wehrlein. On average, Ericsson bettered Wehrlein by 0.188. Gasly outperformed Hartley by 0.050 but this is based on just 3 races together. I claim that the most even pairing was Perez and Ocon, where Ocon outperformed Perez by a meagre 0.012 points over the course of the season. In comparison, he feels that Ocon scored 0.221 better than Perez.
* The lowest rated driver to secure a 10-pointer was Lance Stroll, who scored 10 by me in Azerbaijan (he awarded him 9). The lowest rated driver with a double-10 was Romain Grosjean, awarded by us both in Austria.

Kubica is not getting the drive for Williams after all. The team confirmed mediocre Russian driver Sirotkin, and his wallet, to partner Stroll, and his wallet, for 2018. Williams will therefore run with one of the most inexperienced teams on the grid. Only Toro Rosso will field drivers with less F1 experience, but they at least have GP2 champions and WEC world champions in their lineup..

Here's the complete grid for 2018:

Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport:
44. Lewis Hamilton (link)
77. Valtteri Bottas (link)

Scuderia Ferrari:
5. Sebastian Vettel (link)
7. Kimi Raikkonen (link)

Aston Martin Red Bull Racing: (link)
3. Daniel Ricciardo (link)
33. Max Verstappen (link)

Sahara Force India F1 Team:
11. Sergio Perez (link)
31. Esteban Ocon (link)

Williams Martini Racing:
18. Lance Stroll (link)
?. Sergey Sirotkin (link)

Scuderia Toro Rosso: (Honda)
10. Pierre Gasly (link)
28. Brendon Hartley (link)

Renault Sport Formula One Team:
27. Nico Hulkenberg (link)
55. Carlos Sainz Jr. (link)

Haas F1 Team:
8. Romain Grosjean (link)
20. Kevin Magnussen (link)

McLaren Formula 1 Team: (Renault)
2. Stoffel Vandoorne (link)
14. Fernando Alonso (link)

Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team: (link)
9. Marcus Ericsson (link)
16. Charles Leclerc (link)

Aston Martin Red Bull with a Renault engine ... is odd. Well, TAG engines, which is kinda still part owner of McLaren, also? Of course, these days Aston Martins use Mercedes AMG engines, so maybe that all somehow makes sense. :mrgreen:

So what you're saying is McLaren, Mercedes, Renault, and Aston Martin are all one and the same engine manufacturer? :lol:

It's a shame that Williams is going for the money, although if Sirotkin did perform better during the tests, it is understandable that he got the seat over Kubica.

Maybe the forum fundraiser for next year can take a bit more ambitious goal, get a forum member into Formula 1. Seats apparently go for about 15 million, so if all members put in 30 euros we can have our very own Formula 1 driver.

I would support that idea in a heartbeat, assuming I'm the one we nominate. Surely some of us can chip in a few million on our own, we must have some CEOs amongst our midst? :mrgreen:
