hmm when we found out webber was first to test redbull this year everyone was saying he is the puppet to iron out the major problems for vettel, but in this situation its a reward for beating lewis. people are funny with there two faced biased opinions. anyways i hope he does a good job and gets the car up to scratch for this year same goes for webber and the rest of the drivers

Tiapan's disciples even using the lulu terminology, as i said sheep.

Congrats to Button who has done well in beating (Lewis) even though the Young mans mind has been elsewhere. I think it is right that Button is the first to test drive the mp27 as im sure he would have had a lot of input in the cars development something i don't think is one of Lewis's strengths.

haha.. anyone that thinks JB is a better driver than Lewis needs their eyes checked. Lewis is an extraordinary talent - just look at the overtaking highlights on youtube. JB is a very good driver too but you cannot compare lewis to JB. Lewis has an ability to get the best out of a ordinary where is JB could only compain about it.

Also why does everyone think that JB is rewarded with test driving the new car? It doesnt add up, if i follow the same logic, how is Massa rewared with Ferrari's test driver?

Still a 'lil bit upset then Ronnie? I'll try and lift you and your cheerleaders mood with some constructive criticism...

There are two reasons not to give Lulu first shot of the car.

1. Jan 2010 and Jan 2011 Lulu told us all that the new McLaren was the best ever, thanks in no small part to his epic involvement during designing the car! (ie annoying the designers) of course his judgement was passed before he even drove the thing! So not exactly the voice of reason!

2. The car has a 4 day test to do, spare wings etc will be in short supply, so it wouldn't make any sense to give the car to the Crash Test Dummy on the first 2 days as there would probably be very little left of the thing by the third day!
