Thats the 5th pointless thread about the same story....he's worried...we get it....he should be worried, if it wasn't for Alonso they'd be back in the Jean Alesi/Berger era.

I'm not Alonso fan btw but I recognise talent when I see it.

Pole, without in any way wanting to take away anything from AN's abilities I say that “that” it always was and will always be the way AN functions (a master of finding loop holes).
He not only always got up to the line marking up the rule/s limitations but most of the time stood right on it/steps right on it and most of the time that worked for him and the team he was working for.

At least Luca is sensible enough to acknowledge the gap to Redbull and are making efforts to close it. Newey the genius is the only factor. Vettel and Horner are really riding on Newey's success. Vettel, has proven, time and again that he can only win with the fastest car...I mean, put Karthikayen or any rookie into that machine and they would have a strong chance of being on the podium. I weigh 110kgs and have driven my Honda in some street races down the road from where I live, and do seriously believe that I could be in the top 10 if I was given a chance to drive that RB:))...So I do think Vettel is an over-rated driver and he has yet to prove he can win a race from behind in F1 with a 2nd tier car. Even if he moves to Ferrari, I doubt he could be better than Alonso in the same machine.

They were two tenths of the pace in q2, qualifying isn't a strength of the ferrari, what it turns into (into Alonso's car) once the lights go out on Sunday's is a very good, reliable race car with a so far excellent pit crew, Vettel and Red Bull still need to manage tyres and track temps, the two spanners in the works
