I don't rate Di Resta much. He's a bread & butter driver - very average. He'll be around for a while but never actually achieve anything. I hope he proves me wrong, though...

I'd have thought Hulkenberg will be at one of the "big" teams in 2014.

I agree on the Di Resta front. With Hulkenburg, I don't rate him as highly as some of you lot seem to, but would agree he could be pretty good, I see him as a bit like Heidfeld, a good driver and capable of some podiums in the future, but not a future champion

My thoughts exactly, i think if Webber went to McLaren that would be a dream lineup for me

Just bought new race boots and gloves. This racing lark certainly chews through money...

F1 starts in 15 minutes and i'm recording the Touring Cars, damn good day for me :yes:

Hoping for a good race today, but I have a feeling Ferrari have the race pace to seal this one up, Alonso for the win, hoping Jenson can pick up a few points with strategy too

Fantastic Race for Lotus - which results in a happy me!

I was surprised by Di Resta, maybe I was wrong about him...

I've been a fan of Di Resta for a while, I did say give him the car he will show a few people what he can do, I will say i think he should have been more aggressive in the straight when he was overtaken though :yes:

He could have been more aggressive, but really didn't stand a chance against a faster car on faster tyres. It was probably wise to play it safe and take 4th.

Damn right, I used to have a Force GT wheel for GT5, turned an already great game into an experience and a half.

Thoughts on Perez today, maybe a bit too aggressive, which he is saying is the case actually, so fair play to him ?

But finally looking like a Mclaren driver :yes:

Very impressed with Perez and Nico Rosberg today - both never stopped fighting despite the fact their Cars weren't too great.
