I think teams should take a leaf out of the Red Bull book and let them compete, at least until one has a clear advantage at a shot for the WDC.

There are 2 titles at stake and if you miss one you could at least pick up the other by good efforts by both drivers. Even though Red Bull missed out on the constructors they were at least in there with a good fighting chance and it kept both drivers happy and hungry.

Alan, I think one of those Brawn parts must have knocked you on the noggin too cos you're talking absolute cr*p. To suggest the parts fell off Barrichellos car on purpose is absolutely ludicrous, and alleges that Brawn are guilty of attempted manslughter by the actions you allege!

Lets not forget that the most important crown for a team is the Constructors Championship (it means $$$$). The drivers championship is the icing on the cake, and the media and fans puller. So Ross will pool his drivers to achieve this object. He doesnt care which driver wins the drivers title, he wants to win the TEAM prize. Track performance will decide which one has the advantage, and that CANNOT be decided before a wheel has even turned.

Hahahaha Taz

I actually saved the replay to see where you went wrong.
Using me as a brake isnt cool lol

Uprated my #16 RS Spyder, got the camber adjustements perfect for a race round the 'ring later if you brave enough?

On topic,

Mercedes will not sabotage itself by making Schuey no1! What a ludicrous idea. Every team needs a guy who will spearhead the team. At Mclaren its Hamilton, Red Bull have Vettel, Ferrari now have a genuine no.1 in Alonso and Mercedes will have schumi.
So what big deal! This no1 thing has gone on since time began!

Schumi will be no1 and he is not going to help nico to world championship before he secures one for merc. Just as he did with irvine in 99.
Perhaps with the news he is staying awhile he wants the only record he hasn't got and be the oldest world champion.
And despite not being schumi's biggest fan I bet nico gets his first win in 2010 and that will be with ms help on and off the track.

Some things are not even worth debating over. Nico must play a supporting role to Michael for merc gp to win. Afterall, Nico has been in some very good teams previously and never impressed. Nico my son, you are a #2 and that's the way to stay. Be happy to be a #2 until your dyin' day.

Aye, I should be online after 8. I haven't even got round to faffing about with suspension settings, would be nice if you could download a default setup for cars/tracks.

I think I'll leave the RS200 with 750bhp in the garage, it understeers like a pig.

As for the replay....standard Plato tactics were deployed...I promise I won't do it again...honest :p

The R1 cars are very fast but a bit boring, maybe an R3 car would be more amusing.
