ferrari only stepped up there development because a legendary team were fighting for the championship. i have a sneaky suspicion ross brawn has had the 2013 car all planned out since august 2012. lets not forget this is the guy who has won constructors with 3 different teams.

@Richard, I'm assuming you are being facetious with your allocation of probability?

Such a non-story here though, surely there are more exciting stories in the off-season.

@ Johnny Herbert: Thank you, Captain Obvious

In other news, it has been revealed that the driver with the most points at the end of the season will win the championship.

The Merc had better be very very good for Hamilton to win races. Statistics from 2012 made McLaren clearly the best car(Ferrari 4th after McL, RB & Lotus) yet where is Hamilton. Alonso 2nd in the 4th best car...Merc should have signed Alonso.

Why are so many of you knocking Herbert? His statement is the truth and is only part of a conversation/interview. He is right that Merc failed to develop their car last season and they have to improve on that this year for them to have a chance of winning a race or races. If those of you who knock Herbert are so clever, why aren't we reading your comments from the media instead of on this blog?
For those of you who hate the "closed" season so much, why on earth are you even reading about it then?
