    Looks like wet for qualifying, too: http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/l/USTX0057:1:US

    Maybe dry for Sunday.


    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Doubtful about a dry Sunday since the eye of Hurricane Patricia is scheduled to contact the Mexico/Texas border by 1:00 AM on Sunday morning.  


    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    I guess The Weather Channel didn't see that coming... (they've updated to AM showers now, originally just "cloudy")

    Some good satellite pictures here: http://www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/comment.html?entrynum=3165


    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Qualy and race both on Sunday guys? 

    Btw, how much truth do you think is behind RBR teaming up with Honda next season?


    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    i was lucky enough to get on a flight from austin to dallas this morning, the drive to austin airport from downtown was a very wet adventure. i cannot imagine that they will do the quali today......looks very bad.

    How low can Nico get? Lewis throw him the hat to get ready and he just chunk it back. The camera caught the whole thing and Paddy was not impressed at Nico's childish behaviour. 

    While he may not legitimately have a chance at the title, he still lost the race with a mistake, which also ruins Vettel's chances.

    Best racing of the season. And some of the worst.

     


    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Brilliant race-weekend! Well deserved championship for Lewis and huge respect for Max! Respectable drive from Button as well!

    I think NR just finds LH obnoxious , and he is imo. NR needs to be more aggressive when it comes to race shunts. I know I couldn't resist shunting the diva.

    Vettel proving he is a great driver along with Mad Max. In the same car SV would be more than a match for LH imo, he just has great race craft, like Alonso. Mad Max will be awesome later, would love to see him paired with LH, he would surely rattle LH.

    When Rosberg drives aggressively, he gets endless criticism from everyone, including his own team. When Hamilton drives aggressively, he gets praised. Double standard for the de facto No. 2 driver on the team.

    @apias

    LH and NR are racing in the same team since 2013 season (58 races), look at the statistics and the is quiet clear...

    LH is a (tripple) WC

    NR is a "if it's a sunny day-everthing is great " then I'm fast driver

    Since they raced together in the same team, NR won 10 races, LH 22!!

    Something more to add? ;-)


    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Yep,, I thought NR looked as quick as LH yesterday though. Really hope his as quick as LH next season. Problem now is, is that NR is the cemented No2 driver.

    Please Ferrari, up your performance for 2016!, 2015 has got boring at times with the same dude up front in a superior car. Having said that, I wouldn't have minded so much if it was Kimi driving it, indecision....

    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    I had something to add to my previous post...

    Since they race together, the collected the following amount of points:

    * LH 900 (incl. double points for his win in the last race of 2014, so actually he cellected 875pts "in reality")

    * NR 735

    So the Nr2. position has been cemented by NR himself since three seasons!! :-P

    He's like FM oder Rubens Barrichello, born to be 2nd :-D

    I don't see how that affects my point at all, unless you are arguing that Rosberg ought to give way to Hamilton because he's a World Champion.

    Problem is, he always was.


    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Rosberg cracks under pressure while Hamilton does not. There's more to becoming a world champion than just being quick. Consistancy and keeping a cool head when it matters are just as important.

    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    I agree guys. LH had less DNF's than NR too, did he not?..LH had crap luck in Monaco I know, but, I still think NR should be closer points wise at the moment. Of course LH is the quicker of the two, I just do not think he is the quickest driver on the grid. Also, LH, imo, will crack under pressure if he is against a Vettel or a Alonso, even Mad Max V, now he has raw speed and is a true racing driver.

    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Hamilton has "cracked" under pressure many times, and made plenty of stupid driving mistakes in his career (e.g., the infamous gravel pit incident). He's just been lucky this season that he's never really been under pressure, except for that time he cracked at Monaco and insisted the team pit him. Hamilton is quick, but he's done better than he would have in the last 2 races because Rosberg has been told to yield way to him. Frankly, Rosberg should have taken him out both times, but the team would have been upset that he didn't just let Hamilton run him off track.

    It's like the time Vettel took out himself and Weber, but everyone blamed Weber, even though it was clearly Vettel's fault. Rosberg doesn't have a team at his back, Hamilton does.

    Exactly my point, NR should have played bumper cars with him but he was intimidated by Merc. Im not too sure Max would play second fiddle to LH..

    Yep, the Webb and Vett show, I loved it.

    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Hamilton has Mercedes on his back simply because he is the quicker and faster and better driver.

    Nico is like Hamilton when Lewis first started, whines to much, nothing is ever his fault, it's always someone else's. Hamilton learnt and suck it up and man up, and becomes a much better driver. Nico is still in his diaper phase. Until Nico grows up, he will only be good, not great. 

    Nico doesn't have that killer instinct, win at all cost like Senna, Schumacher, and Hamilton and Vettel, he is more like Alonso, where he prefers stuff to be silver tray-ed to him and whine endlessly if things doesn't go their way.

    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    Nonsense. Rosberg displayed that killer instinct at Spa last year, and got a beat down for it... from Mercedes. There's clearly a double standard at Mercedes about what's acceptable for each driver. Hamilton is the anointed one, and Rosberg is clearly treated as expendable.

    That stunt was stupid, not killer instinct.

    He refused to let Hamilton run him off track. There wasn't anything stupid about it. But he was clearly taught that, in the future, he has to allow Hamilton to run him off track.


    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    There was never any room for Nico to do anything on his intended line at Spa, he just crash into Hamilton on purpose trying to prove to the world that he is 'tough' and can't be bullied around. That's called stupid. Especially on the 2nd lap during a race in the middle of the schedule, no one does that except Prost, who crash out Senna on the 1st corner to win the championship, but Prost didn't do it in the middle of the season, he did it at the end, dirtiest driving ever but he has everything to gain and nothing to lose. And that's why no one calls Prost's move 'stupid'.

    What was your take on turn one from the start off?. That was not understeer from LH's car, imo.

    Re: 2015 US F1 Grand Prix at Austin

    His intended line was around the turn, Hamilton tried to force him off track, then whined about it ("He spoiled my race.") when Rosberg didn't meekly acquiesce. Whined about it so much that Mercedes, always eager to pacify their little prima donna, forced Rosberg to publicly apologize, and clearly laid down the law that if Hamilton wants to run him off track, he better go off track. Rosberg is driving with one hand tied behind his back to insure that Hamilton doesn't have a melt down because his race is ruined.

    What you're saying is, when Rosberg does it, it's stupid, but when Hamilton does it's brilliant. The whiner here is Hamilton, big time, you know, the guy who ran over the "3rd Place" sign at Monaco after he stopped out on the track and had a little fit, after he panicked and screwed up his own race (which Mercedes took the blame for to mollify him). Sure, Rosberg is bitter, and justifiably so. But he's not the one on the team that lacks character.
