The places of the Mercedes GP drivers are too unrealistic.Tomorrow they will have no chances to fight against the Ferraris and Lotus-Reanults.It seems that we will watch a good race like in Malaysia this weekend.Hope that Ferrari has made a step forward this weekend and will be closer in qualifying than it was in Sepang.

Hope that Webber was doing heavy fuel runs and that he will be more of a match to Vettel in qualifying and the race
Untill now he has been dissapointing his supporters, who by now must get rather frustrated, judging by their comments!

I am not as disappointed in Webber's results as I am in the disparity between the reliability of the two RB7's. It just creates an air of speculation regarding RBR's level of dedication to it's drivers.

Haha some of you are deluded and just can't handle the fact Vettel is the fastest in F1, reliability is a lottery just like last year how many times did Vettel's car fail compared to Webber but none of you take that on board, speedwise in Malaysia Webber was a few tenths behind which reflects what the trend is even when Webber's on top form. Redbull can't afford to sabotage Webber or not take care of his car because the Wcc is too important, if they need a slower driver they'd get a slower driver.

Vettel and Red Bull are in frightening form. Only Hamilton has the speed to take the race to him if Whitmarsh does not put a spanner in the works !

Cmci, was an air of speculation created last year regarding RBR'S level of dedication regarding the RB6 reliability?.
And Elijah, if Whitmarsh does not put a spanner in the work's!,
I know that everybody is entitled to his opinion but FFS such mentality is unbelieveable.

Come on. They are both getting equal equipment. Mark hasn't even stooped to such a low level. Button is getting what he wants and so is Massa. To think otherwise is just sour grapes. Not saying team orders won't be played out but it won't be with giving one driver a lesser car. As Sunny has said unbelieveable.
