The incident with Vettel refusing to respond to team orders was another PR disaster for the four-times World Champion - "tough luck" was the real Vettel stripped of all the engineered niceties. And yet again Christian Horner handled it with all the authority of a supply teacher put in charge of the worst form in school. If Christian likes his drivers to be a bit feisty and ignore team orders, "they're racers" then why bother saying anything to them? An instruction is an instruction. Or maybe add "in your own time..."

        A few weeks ago everyone was praising Massa for ignoring team orders. Vettel does it and its the opposite(although I remember quite clearly Vettel moving over and letting Ricciardo by in China). So many Vettel haters are delusional.

        Vettel has a good car but isn't winning? Explain that!
Ricardo Acunzo commented at Apr 22, 2014 7:14:31 PM
        I think that Vettel enjoyed having a car that was 0.5-1.5 seconds faster for the last 4 years and the team clearly improved the car to better suit him that entire time. With the new rules, they had to come up with something completely new and it's not to his liking yet, but the upgrades to improve rear grip will come I'm sure.
Ian Enz commented at Apr 22, 2014 7:15:32 PM
        Vettel doesn't like the new car, team should say 'tough luck'
Ian Enz commented at Apr 22, 2014 7:16:36 PM
        But really, he just doesn't like the car, I don't think it really has to do with it being average, just the new regulations and all. I think he still would have made top 5 consistently last year if he had an average car, a car fitted to regulations he liked.
Ricardo Acunzo commented at Apr 22, 2014 7:22:31 PM
        I agree, though to me it proves that Vettel was never the magician that a lot of people claimed him to be. He is a good driver but he's had a very superior car in most races he won. Now is really when we'll see how good Seb really is.
Brad Packard commented at Apr 22, 2014 7:32:02 PM
        Kimi's lack of pace compared to Alonso is just as surprising in my opinion.
Bryan Armbrust commented at Apr 22, 2014 7:47:39 PM
        The Red Bull is, and has been, designed around acceleration out of lower speed corners. This is why it is often the fastest car in the more twisty sectors.
Last year the RB9 had such phenomenal rear downforce that, counter-intuitively, the car actually stuck better when pushing harder and earlier out of the corners. This year much of that rear downforce has been wiped away, and the cars are up on power, so that driving technique is no longer the most advantageous. Ricciardo, as he was already driving an inferior car last year, was actually better prepared to adapt to the new car and the driving style required to make it work.
Seb and the last few iterations of the Red Bull were in the rarefied position of having a car designed around each other, that played off both their strengths. Seb adapted his driving style to suit a particular strength of the car, and with that Red Bull was able to continue capitalizing on rear end downforce gains, because their driver was uniquely suited to drive it the way that was fast, instead of the way that was normal. Seb has been driving to that specific set of parameters to take advantage of the car's strength for the last four years. He's still the driver that scored points in his first race in a BMW and won in the STR in the rain at Monza. It is probably going to take him a little while to adjust to a style that is best suited to the car. You can tell exactly what he is struggling with, since he is running higher downforce settings than Daniel, and causing the tires to go off faster. There's a happy medium there that has not yet been found. Meanwhile, nearly all of the drivers in F1 are pretty hot shit, and sometimes something changes that one is able to capitalize on better than others. Because he has won so much in the last several years, when he runs in the top five everyone suddenly decides he's off his game. News flash, 21 drivers are off their game every race of the year, and in F1, the drivers are only the final piece of the puzzle that determine where they are going to end up.
The Renault engine goes without saying.
Bryan Armbrust commented at Apr 22, 2014 7:52:00 PM
        Short version: completely change your driving style next time you're at CalSpeed and still hit the same lap times.
Ricardo Acunzo commented at Apr 22, 2014 7:56:07 PM
        On the topic of engines, I'm wondering how Renault and Ferrari compare.
Sean Brierley commented at Apr 22, 2014 8:05:25 PM
        The main issue he is having, for me, is the lack of the blown diffuser which is causing the car to be naturally more unstable. Not having had full use of the blown diffuser to the extent Vettel had, Ricciardo isn't finding the car too different and perhaps more stable than his previous cars. Vettel on the other hand, is trying to retain the same level of downforce whilst keeping speed, but is struggling to find the limits without going over the top. Every bit of downforce added mechanically or aerodynamically now is greatly affecting tyre wear, which quickly reduces grip and stability, a vicious circle!

"When one day he has a car like the others and he is fourth, fifth, seventh, these four titles will be bad news for him because people will take these four titles even in a worse manner than they are doing now.

        I love the people who say seb sucks and just had a fast car. Lol the red bull was not the fastest cars in a straight line in fact it was one of the slowest. It was fastest in the turns. Seb was a brilliant driver of a high down force car ie blown defuser. He could get on the throttle a hell of a lot earlier and carry more speed in and out of corners. Now he can't and I think it is messing with him. I think he does not understand how to drive a very high torque very low down force car. His tires do not last com paired to dans and it is due to driving style he must hate a nervous car.

        Dave Ryan alot of British fans might not have liked Schumacher for because of his battles with Hill. But I don't think there's many people that can't admit Schumacher was clearly the best driver of his time, maybe of all time.
Michael Kelleher commented at Apr 22, 2014 2:32:39 PM
        dunno why everyone has to knock Vettel constantly. ricciardo has done a great job so far. good stuff from all the teams letting the drivers race, it would be dull without the infighting. despite having the fastest car this year, I still rate Hamilton top - deserves at least one more championship.
Bedo Royal commented at Apr 23, 2014 3:26:09 AM
        British fans are the loudest and most obnoxious in their hate for a German who loves everything English. Very sad for Vettel, very typical for the British.

        Seb was nevr a good racer,he had a fast car,that won his titles...his not a team player,its all bout Vettel...mercedez gave up on the title chase last year 2 work on their 2014 race car.now they hav the race car and Seb cnt step up 2 the challenge with driving skill, Daniel always had the talent,jus not the car 2 complete him!im a full on Ferrari supporter bt this is Hamiltons year
Tom Hayden commented at Apr 22, 2014 6:48:59 PM
        given the overall complexity of F1 cars over the last 20 yrs. or so no suprise to me,daniels crew did a better job of setting the car for him just like Lewis's team did for him this race. If you watched the previous race the battle between Lewis and Nico is more representative of equal cars

        Only four races in Yh Hamilton on a great start to the season rosberg also good start to season we will see how the other cars compare in the European races Mercedes have a dominant car so far but it was same as red bull they had few good races to begin with then had a bad stint and second half they dominated through to the title if like Hamilton to win it since he won his first champion ship the maclaren didn't give him a good enough car when Lewis moved to Mercedes they allows him one season to adjust his car and nw you can see he is flying in his car setups. How often do u see a lead of 10+ seconds in most races not only that Chinese race his tires where great which was good to see considering it was tire issues last season as to why they wasnt at their best on the races

        I really don't believe Ferrari's car was as bad as they kept throwing out there in 2012 and 2013. Was it perfect? No, but if the car was so bad as they kept saying over and over again. Then he (Alonso) wouldn't have been able to win races and that's not to say Alonso can't drive. You don't win championships in bad cars. No one can digest not wining once you won a championship once let alone four times in a row.
