The nose may look the most prominent component to 2012 f1 car, but it's the suspension that seems to be dictating the pace of the game, including and specially on how it affects the tyre....meanwhile pirelli seems to be taking all the credit or blame, depending on which side you are on! If not for the last-minute FIA 'nah nah' on Lotus' active ride height system, Lotus would have gone steaming away in races faster than the Brawns of '09.

And hasn't Hammy been squealing off late, about his macca's rear suspension - looks like the longer the mclaren runs, the more it seems to be 'loading' the suspension, and given the aggressive driving style of Hammy could explain why he is facing so much of a tyre degradation issue. And oh! the RB stopped last of all front runners for tyres...the same car which, prior to it's valencia suspension update, was one of the worst on its tyres!

Seb looked to have the full advantage over the field he had last year. Hence the hissy fit after the car broke. He had already warmed the fingers for all to review.

Alguesuari needs to get a real job, his F1 career is likely over, as is his credibility and anyone's interest in his continued lamenting over loosing his seat with STR, and assertion that he was in serious negotiations with Lotus. As far as RBR performance and latest upgrades, Bravo. Want a new conspiracy to run with? The alternators used be Renault that took out Romain and Seb, handing the win to Alonso, are made by Magnetti Marelli, whose motorsport headquarters are in Milano, just a few miles away from Maranello... hmmmmm... (just kidding)

I hope that Red Bulls pace around the Valencia track was about their better downforce setup for that particular track and that they wont be as strong on the faster tracks like Canada or Spa where the Mclarens seem to be more competitive.

@Kevin

Yeah, cause being a BBC pundit and commentator for one of the most recognized sports in the world and THE Pirelli F1 test driver isn't a real job is it?

Get a life dude!

Yaaaawwwnnnnn

Sorry but this is F1 2012. A complete lottery.

I am sick to death of hearing a different person hyped up each week with claims that their performance is a sign of impending domination, a warning to rivals and someone to watch out for in the future.

Yeah yeah and when the next race comes they revert to being an also-ran.

Roll the dice and tell me who is getting the hype next week.
