Talks sense and I 'm not all the sure the McLaren is 2nd to the Red Bull. Vettel only just got pole however all 4 drivers had pole within the grasps. Vettel drove a mistake free lap which Lewis admitted he couldn't do. The McLaren is also reliable while the Reds are clearly uncomfortable with their KERS. It shouldn't take too long before the McLaren is the best car out there. Vettel in my opinion is the difference.

Vettel is the difference no question about it. Seb was perfect but I think there is more where it came from. I don't think Ferrari had KERS issue as much as DRS issue yet they managed to get the fastest lap of the race I believe. Ferdi on his second set of hard tyres was as quick as anybody and was lapping about 1 sec faster than anybody.

Vettel is certainly a factor, but I think the RBR is a bigger factor. MW has problems starting, and had no KERS during the race. RBR had problems with their KERS, Ferrari and Mercedes had problems with the DRS and LH had problems with his tyres, although I don't know why they sent him out on hard after his first stint on hards. Are they limited on softs?

calvin. ALL top 10 cars started on softs.

Newbie. nobody can appeal against a result. an appeal can be made against a stewards imposed penalty, but , as i said on another thread, there have been NO appeals lodged against the penalties. the race is over, and the results stand.
vettels one move at the start and his positioning for the first corner were totally legal. yesterday i said that his one move was against button, of course this should have read, lulu, who made several moves to try and gain position. in fact he changed sides of track totally. he started on sebs left, yet tried to squeeze through on sebs right, and thenwent back to sebs left. that was a rather drastic change of direction, wasnt it?

I see the main talk is around Red bull and Mclaren when Ferrari shouldnt be discounted since both its drivers passed both Mclaren's drivers (Alonso was all over Hamilton and would have passed had they not touched).

So for Redbull, you currently only have Vettel delivering the goods. Mclaren are in a good shape yet the team that really comes alive on sunday is Ferrari. Look out if they sort out their qualifying form not to forget the rate how they develop their cars is unbelieveable, take last year as an example.
