Former F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton says the FIA did the right thing in introducing stricter flexible bodywork tests in Belgium - a move that he claims has reined in Red Bull Racing's 'impossible' erstwhile advantage

Hamilton please just worry about your driving because if you don't raise your game (which you can't, already at maximum) then the championship will be lost.

I don't know how much the Redbulls have actually been slowed down because at Singapore before his pitstop Vettel was nearly 30sec up the road and thats when the Redbull wasn't pushing and also stuck behind Alonso so either Webber was underperforming or Vettel's skills finally shining through because without the ferrari in front it's logical to say Vettel might of pulled a 40sec gap within 25laps after the first safety car and thats as big as Hungary.

Ferrari have out-developed the rest!!! McLaren are only up there because they have been the team to take advantage of Ferrari and Red Bulls cock-ups this year....we are now seeing the true pace of their car and far they have been technically left behind!! The F-Duct bullsh!t gave them an early advantage but now its gone they are struggling to keep up!! #:)

Ferrari has bolted on 3 parts at least from the Bulls and McL. Name one thing they came up with this year that no one else had. Nothing. Just Alonso picking the pieces he wants off other cars.

rob01-- the Ferrari Rims. The reason you don't hear much about it is because the rims have to be homologated at the beginning of the season thus locking in the advantage to Ferrari. Development is not just about innovation its also about evolution of existing parts as well.

while mclaren were trying to slow red bull down, they seem to have taken there eyes of ferrari . . . after the self proclaimed development skills of the team helped jenson button get passed by mark webber and enabling the world champ to follow webber's less than healthy red bull (a fact finding mission) accross the finish line in fourth and in so doing lose ground on all the championship rivals except hamilton. mclaren must be feeling pretty pleased with how things are going

@rob I guess this year every car's basic design is based on last year's red bull.mclaren copied several parts as well. Even rbr copied the dd last year.Its quite normal in f1.but when mclaren couldnt copy they went to the fia for help. If mclaren are so good how did they even fail to understand how to make the wings bend but at the same time pass the test(admitted by themself). So you whine all you like but the fact is red bull has outdeveloped them and now ferrari are doing as well.

Lulu is the disease that is killing F1. Instead of appropriate technical regulations they just snivel and sandbag until the regulators step in and then they get it their way.
