Head To Head Sebastian Vettel vs Daniel Ricciardo

Tuscan1969

Points Scorer
...But to come back to the point of the thread....

Russia will be very interesting ; Will Seb and Daniel have strictly midfield cars and ( if so) will DR flight like blazes and Seb just not give a toss or will Seb be determined to maintain his recent run of good results V's DR and give us a real battle even though its only for the minor places....

with so many potential sub-plots still to unfold in the rest of the season I am just sorry we will not get 2015 to compare the two head to head and make a more considered judgement of their strengths.

Mephistopheles RasputinLives Seem people will find it is about time Vettel got bought down to mortality status this season and the added bonus he's leaving the team as well like I said the whole of Australia will be feeling smug about what has happened to Vettel including Webber

Yes Webber has proven he is an average driver or lacking a few essential ingredients beside luck and the belief that Vettel had full backing of the RB Management therefore could not beat Vettel.

So against a quality driver is Vettel being truly shown up ala Piquet ?

Late in FP2 today Sirotkin put forward the view that because of the blown diffuser Vettel didn't have to worry about tyres, he could just run flat out and still get better wear than the other teams; thenthis year he has had to learn to handle them which accounts for some of his problems.

Bill Boddy Interesting but it does seem a bit naive that he was under prepared for this scenario given that EBD were being banned and he was running away with the title last year

It struck me during the race whether Seb was thinking more of his future team when driving today. Kvyat certainly seemed to be when he capitulated rather easily to the two Red Bulls.

well Seb will be glad the odds of Daniel winning the title are very slim now after today's off performance by the Bulls

teabagyokel If only Nico crashed into Lewis down in turn 3 :whistle:today but Red Bull have turned up and been truly trounced and it can't be down to the Renault engine because the sister team were faster than them over 1 lap

Toro Rosso probably got the set-up right for qualifying, Sochi was unknown and I don't think that's endemic of Red Bull's performance.

Horner apparently said team orders between Vettel and Ricciardo was never an issue ..just as well that Seb does not have to move over as Horner says it was a long shot that Daniel could pull it off
