I know what I think. But I'm probably wrong!

  Fastest lap WDC
Posted by: morini - 01-12-2019, 08:48 PM - Forum: F1 General Discussion Board - Replies (1)

As most of you know, I'm not a massive fan of awarding a point for fastest lap due to the fact that it can be largely circumstancial. That is, if a driver has a window where he is basically nowhere in the race but has no immediate threat from behind he can pit for fresh tyres and do a glory run late in a race on low fuel with fresh rubber. Interestingly this year it was the eventual WDC winner who scored the most FL points over the season with 6 to his name. Two of those (including today's) were late attempts on worn hard tyres - the other one was Silverstone, for what it's worth. There was one other occasion where Hamilton almost did the same but Vettel pipped him by milliseconds on fresh rubber on the last lap (I can't recollect the exact race as I'm gin'd up, might have been france?).

Anyway, I've never regarded Lewis as a FL specialist as he tends to be pretty measured and sensible when out in the lead. Just thought I'd share the thought that him winning the FL contest is a bit of a suprise to me.

[edit]
Here's the breakdown, for anyone interested :

So do we think Lewis will phone the last two races in? Or what? He seems really motivated right now, and because it's Brazil he'll want to do well with the Senna link. Given the layout I've got to say it should be a Ferrari front row lockout in quali, but the race, might favour Mercedes.

Jenson Button’s interest in NASCAR is 'great for our sport' - Stewart.

Three-time NASCAR Cup champion Tony Stewart says that 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button’s tweet, replying to a Motorsport.com story about the potential for a future entry by Honda, “makes me smile that he would be even interested”.

Stewart, who is a co-owner of the Stewart-Haas Racing team that fields four cars in NASCAR’s premier Monster Energy Cup Series, said that Button’s tweet is a reflection of the growing positivity about the sport’s future.

Honda, with whom Button has long been aligned and raced for in Japan’s Super GT series since leaving F1, is monitoring the Gen-7 rules set to be put in place from 2021 and has admitted its interest as soon as it becomes economically viable for it to participate.

California-based Button tweeted “Sign me up!!” in reply to our story.

“That would be great!” exclaimed Stewart when asked by Motorsport.com about Button’s tweet. “Just like Danica Patrick was great for our sport when she came in, to have someone like Jenson come in would be huge for our sport.

When asked how quickly a driver from an F1 background could adapt to NASCAR, Stewart replied: “[Juan Pablo] Montoya did it. Race car drivers are race car drivers, no matter what cars they run. What separates the good ones from the great ones, the great ones learn how to adapt to a different feel.

“They don’t get stuck in a feel for a race car, they know how to adapt and read what that the race car is wanting and learn to change their driving style to accommodate it. So there is plenty of race car drivers that can do that.”

Or as it'll be known the Lewis Hamilton victory parade. He'll definitely win it in Austin barring and absolute disaster, and it's thoroughly deserved. He was dominant in the first half of the season when the Mercedes was clearly the quickest car he maximised his advantage and dealt all the damage he could. Hell, even post summer break he's done pretty much the very best he could, even when the Ferrari are clearly the quicker car he's done his best, I still think he could have one stopped in Japan and won. He's always there. I don't think anyone can begrudge him this title.
