I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but time for something only tangentially related to F1: Aussie cricketer Phil Hughes passed away today as a result of complications with head trauma received during a match on Wednesday (a bouncer hit him at the base of his skull behind his ear).

Head injuries are not to be hosed with.

Ah nuts I hadn't heard that he'd died. What anm awful way to go, nutted by a cricket ball. Naturally, I feel bad for the family, but man I really do pity the bowler.

Interesting article. I like it most because it shows Alonso is on the level of 90's Schumacher relative to their competitors.

Unfortunately, this is the same guy who rated Senna 19th out of 60, behind such fantastic drivers as Heinz Harald Frentzen and Jochen Rindt. He also rated Jacques Villeneuve above Gilles, by a wide margin. Also Mikka Hakkinen was 56th.

In short, his modelling is poo poo.

It sort of does. You can be good enough to drive a car fast, but there's no way a 16 year old has been racing long enough to have the wheel to wheel racing experience that someone 21 years old might have.

I hesitate to make comparisons between 2 wheels and 4, but I'm going to do it anyway.

Counterpoint; Marc Marquez. Good enough to carve up people with a decade of experience on him while he was a teenager, in a sport where I would argue the consequences of a mistake are more likely to result in serious injury.

We need to get all these bored billionaire wankers to throw money at F1 teams instead of boats.

The idea that in the year of our Lord two thousand and fourteen, some rear end in a top hat will spend 200 million on a thing powered by wind is absurd.

Haha, no.

I don't think Button would beat Alonso over the course of the season, but I expect he'd do better than most expect. Better than Kimi or Massa ever did against him anyway. Especially if the car was nicely balanced. If it was a bit unruly I'd expect Alonso to be measurably better.

Kamui is no worse than half the pay drivers in the field and can be very exciting to watch when given a car that can stand up in the mid field. He's also pretty popular so I don't understand why he can't get enough cash behind him. It's a shame.

I hope when Honda stops being a McLaren exclusive they look around and realize they should have a Japanese driver in a Japanese powered car and he comes back.

But he probably won't.

I know it's the Daily Mail but they're saying that it's going to be Button and Alonso next year. They're also saying that Ron Dennis only kept him because Honda and other shareholders like him.

It is the daily fail, but that outcome and the reasons behind it are entirely plausible.

Meh....we were all about Alonso/Raikkonen and that turned out to be a damp fart.

Yeah but that was Kimi going into Alonso's turf. Button knows the current team, car and design philosophy and has built a relationship with them over the last 4 years. I expect Alonso will get things his way soon enough, but there's still a settling in period where Button might have a slight edge.

This is the same guy who still wants to effectively have his "technical partners" do all the research heavy lifting. He really does just want to buy off the shelf bits, slap it together in his factory and then race it. Somehow he wants to win with that strategy too.

I got Driveclub a few days ago as it was dirt cheap. That's quite enjoyable, but it's no Forza. Project Cars is coming out soon and that looks quite swanky.

Other than that, every game that's ever been released is absolute shite. Unless you like those silly running around shooty bang games where 12 year olds call your mum a slag.
