I'm sure all the drivers would "love" to win in India and take a 4th successive win too.. I hope every race isn't like this to the end of the season now.

What makes it worse is Mark not being good enough to challenge Seb frequently enough. If Vettel was paired with any of the 5-6 top drivers on the grid, I honestly don't think he'd be having it so easily, I'm pretty confident some of them would beat him over an entire season as I don't think he is capable of handling real pressure.

Alonso has benefited the most from Ferrari's driver line-up , with him sharing the least points when Ferrari are strong...

Sebastian knows how to convert good form/ qualifying positions and has made the most of difficult weekends were he could.

I would like to see him in another car just to get an idea how much the Redbull suits his driving style...

Booby M, looks like for the time being you are not going to see him in another car but for the same time being you can watch/follow Lulu in another car and so up against a new team mate, maybe Lulu will fare better against NR then he did against JB, there is less than twenty points separating Lulu and JB partnership of 3 years at mclaren which is a lot different in team mates comp rations at RBR and FERRARI.

I'm not sure the RBR or Ferrari point differentials between team mates is necessarily a fair comparison to what goes on at McLaren. Alonso is clearly the number 1 at Ferrari, and there have certainly been times where Mark has been told to "Maintain the gap (Silverstone if I'm remembering correctly) to Vettel." Regardless of what people say with regard to Jenson having the best car for the first half of 2009, or Lewis getting past Glock at the last corner in 2008, the McLaren line up has been the only one on the grid the last several years featuring 2 different WDCs. That said, it will be interesting to see how Hamilton can fare against Rosberg in what is likely to be a mid-pack Mercedes (unless Brawn and the team at Brackley have some secrets up their sleeves).

Almost too funny...Vettel's new personal handlers make him sound like a human being instead of an arrogant spoiled brat.

Nothing but flowers and kind words since he once again made an ass out of himself, recently on American TV.

The last race was sooooo boring...afraid much of the same is what we will see. Come on Vettel, do something stupid again...at least that's entertainment!

Jeff, the number one objective of any formula one driver has, is and will always be beating his team mate, anything else is secondary to that and will come along automatically, the bigger the points margin the better the situation will be for the leading driver, I compared the team mates of the top three teams having been together for three years and over, the points scored over the past three years by the mclaren team mates totally contradicts all that is claimed by Lulu supporters, and I believe that situation was a prime spike in Lulu's armour (mind trouble). And don't be a fool by discounting team orders at mclaren.

buck. i would rate vettel way above lulu! at least he has a personality, and may make an occassional blooper, but not continually like lulu. in todays papers there is an article by anthony davidson, in which he compares button to lulu, says that button is the better, and calls lulu a twit.

Richard, been waiting for you to show up, this is off topic but might interest you if you haven't read it yet, it is a technical paper (pdf) to the board of directors of BMW by Dr ing Mario Theissen.
Google, 10 years of BMW F1 engines, a paper by Dr ing Mario Theissen.

sunny. thanks. found it under FERRARI chat! i will print off to digest fully. but very very interesting.
i would love to have seen the v12 used.

why did one manufacture go for 71%?? seems an odd angle.
nice to see how the likes of alternator was built into crankcase.

also very impressive to see reduction in height etc.

is there enough info there for you to take on a model?? have yout stopped making these? hopefully during off season, we can have many technical debates.
