MW has every reason to be pleased not only with himself but with the persistent afford of his team in preserving relentlessly until they gave him a trouble free car for the race.
The honesty in the total afford a team will go through to give both its drivers the best car possible is never doubted by real F1 followers.

Sunny, any word on whether or not the new floor of the Bulls has been protested. I read that someone at the track thought the car was sounding off throttle again.

Rob, after qualifying I asked Richard “how long will it be before the new floor on the bulls and the exhaust blowing will be protested?”
As to the off throttle blowing it was veteran photographer Darren Heatthat that said he heard from his regular trackside vantage point in practice “what sounds like off throttle blowing coming from Vettel's car.

last post was at @criminal.. Sunny I have read that others have noticed the same and that Vettel looked to have the advantage he had over others last year. FIA is not going to look kindly at Red Bull out pacing the field by .5 again.

I should have added the autosports article of 23 march2012 which said.
Mercedes queries Renault's engine maps on the RBR cars.
Mercedes has presented the FIA with audio analysis of red bulls racing car on track when the drivers are off throttle.

Its criminal.. That's racing and luck is a part of it. you could say it was criminal mark's car was trouble all weekend, but he still got it done. And people need to get it out their heads that mark is a slow driver. Look what he did in the jaguar and early red bulls

How people can continue to believe that Webber is not fast, when he puts in performances like this, is beyond me...missed pretty much an entire practice session and the car's issues basically kept him out of qualifying, too - yet he still storms back to take another fourth place. The guy is laser-focused this season.
