jim. why can you not accept that vettel is just a faster driver than webber? it is not a conspiracy!
lulu is a faster driver than button. is there a conspiracy there? alonso is a faster driver than flip. is there a conspiracy there?
put two drivers in identical cars, and one will always have the edge. thats life!

Lol This is deja vu Richard. I could swear you have said something super similar before. loll But common, webber isnt THAT much slower. And I'm not the only one who thinks it should have been fixed by now. I actually agree with you as far as who is faster. But webber is in the same car as vettel and has provin hes not as slow as these times reflect. They can fix vettels but not webbers?

people were slagging off HRT a few weeks back saying how hopeless they were and they shouldn't be allowed to race, they are dangerous, blah, blah, blah...

and now look, based on FP, HRT are faster than Virgin!!!!

just waiting for the Virgin are hopeless, they shouldn't be allowed to race, they are dangerous, blah, blah, blah brigade to start up lol.

2PAC, HRT are not the poster boys of F1. Their whole approach looks haphazard, probably due to funding issues. Which other team would use free practice at the first GP to finish building their cars and qualifying as a shakedown session, then use the second GP as a testing session?

But to give them their due, they seem to have overtaken Virgin here, but it's still early days. If I were the Virgin team, I'd be concerned.
