Lewis Hamilton could only marvel at Sebastian Vettel's pace in Valencia, but hopes that McLaren can provide an antidote in time for his home race this weekend.

@ too quick Maybe, he knows and is just being silly? Lost in translation? Hamilton is using the word in a different context. In this case he means "ridiculous" in as his pace is so much faster than the other cars on the grid. It's a compliment.

Hamilton wasn't trying to be sarcastic though.

If he was, he'd have commented about RBR's ''ridiculously slow'' pace.

Instead he emphasis the word, ridiculous, only. To emphasis the performance was absurdly fast and thus hard to compete with.

Irrespective of words, we know that car of Vettel's is incredible. Vetel would have solidly beaten Ferrari and McLaren had it not been for a mechanical DNF.

The competition must be worried.

lulu claims that sebs pace is "ridiculous", meaning fast, but i see that michael, he who turned williams into a disaster and is now doing the same at mclaren, is saying that it isnt, and that mclaren have the same pace. i wonder who is right??

Lulu wasn't being disrespectful when he said “ridiculous pace”.
As Richard said, Sam Michael believes that the ridiculous pace of the SV RB8 in Valencia was due to being circuit specific and down to the tyres.
It doesn't mean that I am agreeing with Sam Michael but about a week ago I said that we will have to wait till Silverstone to judge the RB8 new upgrades.
