Not that I’m obsessed or anything…

How Mata signed off on his blog; seeing how beaten you guys seemed after last nights game, I would hug each and every one of you. #MUFC

Love this so much! wilwheaton

Looks good in United red.

I need more. #Broadway

d-an0nymouz:

Looks like Kimi picked #7. I really like his current helmet design with the 7 on the side; maybe he’d keep it similar for next year (but with Ferrari colors/sponsors).

"Kimi, what number would you like for next year?"
"What number’s on the helmet now?"
"7."
"Ok."

So I posted this almost a month ago, and it’s been confirmed that that’s actually the reason Kimi picked it.

“There’s no particular story linked to it,” the Finn told www.ferrari.com. “It’s the number I already had last year and I saw no reason to change it. I like it which is good enough isn’t it?”

It is impossible to not love this guy.

Cost cap (for 2015)
I still don’t know how much this would effect the teams. People are saying that Ferrari and McLaren, among other teams, will have a greater advantage in “hiding” their expenses since they can test in their road cars. So, I’m not sure this would benefit the smaller teams as I assume it’s intended to be.

Pirelli Tyre test
This will happen for 3 days next week. Not quite sure why only 6 teams have accepted. I would assume that tyre tests would be beneficial to both the teams and Pirelli. But we really can’t say if this would mean “better” tyres for next season.

Driver numbers
This is an idea I can get behind. It would be interesting to see what numbers the drivers pick. Vettel is allowed to have #1, should he choose it, and I assume he would. The more interesting one is who’s going to pick #2. With the current format, Ricciardo would be driver #2, that might put tremendous pressure on him to be the second best driver on the grid (which, let’s be honest here, he’s not). Most drivers would probably pick their favorite numbers, or a legendary number, which means that it’s actually possible for a backmarker team driver to get #2. I would want to see that.

New penalties
I think it gives flexibility to the stewards, so it’s a good idea as long as they don’t overdo it.

Points for the last race
This one is a joke, right? They can’t be serious with this. “Last race of the season” is such an arbitrary parameter. A track/race can suddenly be more important than others, just because of where it is on the schedule. That is just stupid. I might understand it better if it’s for certain tracks (Spa? Monaco?), or for races that are longer or technically more difficult. But next year’s final race will be in Abu Dhabi; it’s such a dull track, and for it to be able to award 50 points is just ridiculous. What makes that race more important than other races, let alone *twice* more important?! Can someone give me a reason why this might be a good idea?
