All those with karting exp, there is a diff. betn kartingn F1. In karting u don't have to develop the car unlike F1. That's the reason Ferrari chooses experienced drivers n kicked off Raikkonen with poor feedback.
Only in Macca, engineers call the shots. In redbull its not Newey its Vettel who suggests Newey what he wants to b developed. Not sure if Seb would have been so good if redbull had releasd him to Macca in 2008.

angie. good last point. i heard another anecdote about seb, in his karting days. when he practiced on the roads around his home (????), there was a tight corner, and he used to soak the track/corner, so as to slide the kart around the corner.

Do u know Seb's dad used to put water to make a corner. I hadn't read the point u mentioned. Thanks 4 info.

Another interesting point about Seb. I have read that Seb used slick tyres while karting. Therefore, he is so good in rains when everyone uses slicks.

@Richard, Taipan, Sunny
Seb says that his father was his mechanic throught his lower formulae/ karting(not sure).
Seb had sponsorships from Vodka n Redbull from karting days. Why did his dad repair the cars? Di Resta says Hamilton broke cars n Mercedes paid for them. For Di Resta, his dad repaired cars as they had to pay for his cars since he wasn't sponsored.

Another proof that HAMILTON USED TO CRASH N BREAK CARS EVEN DURING KARTING. NOTHING'S CHANGED EVEN TODAY. hehehe... Sorry lulu.I like u but won't defend ur wrongs.

Victor, I'll agree with anyone if they're making sense, even you, although there's probably not much chance of that. As for Angelina I believe she's American with a French Italian background.
Looking for an argument Vicky? come and get it.
