Nobody really said Webber was not fast, just that he makes far too many mistakes under pressure, like his team.

2 good races for both, with no real great moves or amazing driving to speak of in the grand scheme of things, and suddenly everybody seems to think Leopards have changed their spots.

2010 may well be a Tediothon, but it seems likely that the World Champion will not so much be a WDC as a WQC, World Qualifying Champion...

I am not going to bother to make the time to watch Hungary or Valencia, awful venues we only have to suffer due to Bernies Politicking, the first races I will have missed in many years.

Hungary and Valencia both suck, a great cure for insomnia, I'll stick Forza motorsport on and check back every 10 minutes to see what's happening.

Top marks Sir Frank nice comments and how can anyone doubt MW driving skill when he drives at that pace around Monaco . Why do people have to knock someone who shows why they are at the top of there game is it just jealousy . I enjoyed the race and the skill on display and great move MS i see there are 2 lots of rules and no one can say you not got the balls for F1 anymore unless they are thick Cheers :)

You're not the only one Frank. Webber has caught alot of people cold over the last week, his team mate certainly. Should be good seeing if and how Vettel can respond.

it has taken webber quite a while to get where he is, so frank would have been looking for instant performance, which sadly was not very evident all those years ago. i fully acknowledge that webber has improved fantastically, and deserves to be where he is at present. but it is still too early in the season to assess if he will be able to hold on to his new found speed, or whether, like last year, fade off in the second half. it will be interesting to watch.

He had a pretty nasty leg break and his fitness was compromised last year, past of it must be down to him been fully fit.

He's been very impressive in the last few, if he does go on to win the WDC I and many others will be eating a large slice of humble pie.

My money is still on Vettel though.
