Well there you go, 3 years wasted with Micheal Schumacher who clearly WASN,T part of the solution ..... but maybe a part of the problem in the first place, apart from a couple of flashes he didn't live up to the hype, oh well at least he topped up his pension

michael. peculiar comment from you "red bull took 5 years to get their first win...merc took 3 years"

what you seem to be ignoring is the fact that red bull took over a mid to low field team, whereas merc took over a wdcc/wcc winning team. so in fact, merc went backwards and red bull went forwards. not bad for a drinks company...they beat a car manufacturer with an illustrious competition past!

(They did and he still left them) that's a load of BS with stinking HOT AIR that only one eyed fan boys are capable of spouting out.
If there is a present team capable of meeting a driver demands to keep him in his seat that's certainly mclaren.
And Richard, well said, your post was spot on complete with facts, we (oldies) are/have to constantly dial with these newbie's (deletantie's) to the sports.

@Richard - They may have took over a title winning team but lets be honest no one expected them to be fighting in 2010 when you look at how their car failed to keep up with the development pace. Brawn was a midfield team with a huge head start.

@ Senna forever

Why do you consider MS a hype? According to your username, I assume you have followed F1 during Schumi's pre-Ferrari years. I also assume that you have followed Senna's career.

I'm a fan of Schumi, and also of Senna, to me both are exceptional drivers, but they also need a good car. The Mclarens that Senna drove to his titles are definitely not sluggish, in fact they were ahead of the field most of the time. In 1994, Senna switched to Williams which had lost the advantages they had in 1993, and look what happened to Senna's results. So if you can consider Schumi a hype, then what about Senna in the Williams? The W01 to W03 were obviously having problems, and the problem isn't MS.

Please give credit to where it dues.

What about Senna at Williams? I think I am right in saying he was on pole for all 3 races in a car which handled like a donkey. Benetton/MS were using an illegal fuel rig and probably traction and launch control too. Senna was pushing that car way over its limits

Sunny, I suggest you just blew some of the hottest if not stinkiest air yourself. Or has your memory slipped since your beloved Alonso drove for McLaren. I think they showed you what they are capable of when dealing with a driver. Or at least thats what you USED to shout from the mountain tops.
