Ferrari Shuey dominated because they did not abide with teams gentleman's agreement to limit testing. Furthermore tyres were designed around Shuey

Michael Schumacher is the luckiest driver in grand prix history, cant really rate him as the greatest driver, he had alot of help, bend so many rules .

On paper Sebastian Vettel is a better driver than Michael Schumacher.

Just because the diffuser is out next year does not mean Red Bull will be left behind.They have been strong in all areas be that design, strategy, pit crew and of course Vettel's consistent driving qualities. If they bring the same strengths into 2012 and if Webber is unable to take points off his teammate, I would bet on them winning the title again next year. I don't expect any big changes at the front until 2013 .

duke. i agree wit taz. and do you know that dc came second in wdc to schumi? he might have faded away a bit towards the end, but he was a steady driver and had to toe the mclaren number 2 line on a number of occassions. but as he is a spokesman for the bulls, it may all be a little bit of winding others up?

Webber was told to hold station in Japan, that is hardly letting him have the same chances, with Seb only needing a point in 5 races at the time it was not really called for.

red bull of 2011 is the same as ferrari was back in schumachers era, everything must please, help and promote vettel, and if this means telling the other driver no to race sobeit and we also must admit that if competition will not improve the cars next season will be a copycat of 2011

Here we go again!.The Schumi bashers emerge as the WONDERFUL (said with TIC!) Coulthard gets his back scratched by his "I too hate Schumi friends!"

Schumacher ran rings around DC,everyone ran rings around DC,including Senna.DC was a British mediocre driver,who was never as good as Damon Hill.

Duke SA take no notice,they are suffering from Red Bull phobia at the moment due to Vettel winning the title for RB.

Yes Vettel is a great kid and did a great job ,BUT, from the front.As Brawn said he needs testing in a lesser car,then we shall see how good he is.

Schumacher in the Red Bull would also have 2 extra WDC's in his pocket,DC in the RB would have managed to come tenth or thereabouts.

Red Bull have had 2 great years,but it will stop now.Ferrari have nearly caught up,McLaren have caught up.And of course the new team,what is it called? Oh yes,Merc GP!

Schumi has neatly been gathering all his old techs around him,and once Schumi has his mind set,nothing will detract him.HE WILL WIN A
