What do you think about this Ricciardo fella? The way he's been sticking it to to Vettel, he just might be my new favorite driver. As an American F1 fan, I found his reason for picking #3 to be quite endearing as well. It's not like there's an American to root for, because Rossi doesn't really count ;D

I think he’s done a fantastic job, and talk about value for money!!!!!  $547,000 is what he cost Red Bull for the season, compared to Vettels  $22 million I think he’s the steal of the century!
However, the idea that Mr Vettel will be sporting McLaren colours next year with that new Honda power unit has my knees knocking in anticipation!!!

When he first got into F1 I thought he could be good because an average driver won't get through the Red Bull development program.  His young driver test in Abu Dhabi kinda proved that.  However I was expecting better results from him at Toro Rosso and he only just seemed to be holding his own against JEV.  This year has been a bit of a revelation and , regardless of low expectations, he has been the performer of the year and is definitely giving RB value for money.

Funnily enough, a friend here, whose son raced against Courtney, Whincup and Winterbottom, thought Ricciardo was just a glorified pay driver when he started but has now changed his tune.

What a race for Ricciardo and Red Bull today. I honestly didn't pay much attention to Ricciardo before this season, but his poise, confidence, and determination have been phenomenal. Most shocking is how badly he's out-performed his four-time World Champ teammate. His battle with Alonso at Hockenheim was epic to say the least! I'm really impressed by the way he carries himself on and off the track.

The prospect of Vettel driving for McLaren is intriguing, especially now that Newey will be stepping down at Red Bull. Honda has a LOT invested in returning to F1, and they're definitely going to demand a driver lineup better than the current Magnusen/Button tandem.
