I interpret Niki to be saying that when it's this close the winner will be the one who is not afraid of 'kicking, biting and bullying' his way to the front. In other words get your points any way you know how and take no prisoners, because there is no place for the gentleman driver at the serious end of this years championship.

So Lauda watched the Olympics from start to finish! Wow! I probably watched an hour of it- all told.

Will agree with him London doesn't need a F1 race. The other street circuits (bar Monaco) are notorious enough without another one.

As for Vettel, nuff said.

Vettel had a top car last year, a car which was nearly 4tenth quicker than the rest on average over the season due to Newey and his team perfecting the EBD better than the rest. Any real f1 fan knows that 2011 was about the RB7 more than the driver and with the ban on the EBD Red Bull lost their advantage and Vettel does not look like the Vettel of 2011 but must give credit he is pitching in there but the RB8 easily one of the top 3 cars on the grid.

I agree with RON that the RB8 is easily one of the top three cars and it's also good to hear Ron giving credit to SV for mixing it/being up there at the top, SV is after all 3rd leading the fastest one of them all by five points.
And POLE, Yes this is the way the powers that be wanted it to be.
