Is it really necessary to headline this story as you do? You make it sound as if only Hamilton was giving his all, but dispite that, the German outpaced him because he was obviously in a superior car. I know that's not what you said, but that's what you are suggesting. Truth is, Vettel slammed the field, including Hamilton, in a car that was no better than the McLaren, as proved by Webber finishing behind Hamilton. He's simply not in the world champions class. Swallow hard and move on.

your right, he beat the entire field, but your wrong, the entire Red Bull outfit from driver to messenger boy is way better than Mac , at least for three years counting.If LH can find a tenth, SV and company can find a a half second etc etc. suck it up

So fecking what!! Vettel beat everyone to pole!! Alonso is the challenge!! Why headline some guy driving a dud car from a competency challenged outfit??

brucie. the simple fact is that the pole shoot-out was clearly between seb and lulu.....and seb did indeed beat lulu to the first texas pole. if lulu had beaten seb, the title would have been reversed. would you have have called macca a dud car from an incompetent outfit?

Probably would have been congratulating Hamilton for getting a dud car from a competency challenged outfit to pole position.
Shirley, no-one in their right mind would deny that McLaren have not been on top of their game this season?

So will Webber be starting from the pit lane or from the back of the grid?

Missing a weight check seems as serious as being underweight - last time I remember a driver being underweight in Quali was Heidfeld in 2000, he got DSQ'd....

Crash was correct in headlining this as Vettel beats Lulu because that's a fact.
There is no doubt that everybody gave his all but the only two drivers that had a car to match the RB8 of Vettel were his team mate and Lulu and he beats them both.

sunny are you sure you got that right, I thought webber would have been the only one with a car to match cos he's in an identical car, say what you like about LH ( as you often do I know ) but give credit where its due LH did a damn good job of getting that car on the front row, feel free to be negative my friend
