@Dizzy ...

Are you for real? You must ne dizzy mate ...

Any knowledgeable fan would know that McLaren are streaks ahead of the Mercedes, in fact, Jenson could probably push the McLaren around faster than Nico or Lewis could drive that heap around the track! ... Aheam, 1st day of winter testing for McLaren, fastest time from Jenson, first two days of testing with Merc, two failures ... so I'm really struggling to see where you are coming from! Can you tell me why you think that? Please?

I'm really shocked at your comment, OK, So you want to stick it to Taipan, I can see that, but aside from his comment being ridiculously funny and so apt, your comment makes you look like you dont know anything about F1, which, based on your comment, I would have to agree with myself on! ...

P.S It was a brilliant first comment, and probably many more to come ... :-)

I do indeed consider myself a knowledgeable fan hence my comment

Jerez winter test times:

JB Mclaren 1:18.8
SP Mclaren 1:18.9
LH Merc 1:18.9
NR Merc 1:18.7

Pretty Damn close so far I would say! Maybe its yourself that doesnt know anyhing about F1

Re outqualifying: not at all impossible I'd say, Hamilton is after all a quali specialist. I think even Taipan would struggle to deny that LH is one of the fastest out there on single lap pace. If Merc have improved even the slightest I expect the quali pace to be reasonably close between Hamilton and the McLarens, as both their drivers have excelled more when it comes to race pace and craft in the past. That said, the actual race is a whole different story...

the times shown are only TESTING. and have no relevance. for instance, button was on HARD tyres.

apart from that, in an interview the other day, brawn said that lulu was very hard on his car, and he was trying to get him to be more circumspect. will it work? only time will tell

Its all smoke and mirrors with Hamilton. Just like at McLaren. The difference now is that he doesn't have one of the best teams trying to prop him up with the best car on the grid and various forms of coddling.
The monster will rear its ugly head when he gets smoked in the first few races. I'm looking forward to it as Lulu has proven to be as entertaing as the racing. To watch and listen to him that is.

hahahaha ... dizzy alright, surely using YOUR OWN logic you would have to say Nico was better placed to out qualify the McLarens? .... No?

Please see Richards comment for some additional insight. :-)

P.S General consensus would not agree with you, never mind what I do or don't know on F1, that was my point ... not times, I didn't mention laps times anywhere, my point was on reliability, lap times is a completely different thing all together ... sometime we can be so infatuated that sometimes it clouds our own often perfectly reasonable judgement! ...

P.P.S I still find it funny ... :-) ... dr34m3r! :-)

I think both Mercedes will out qualify the Mclarens in Australia. Neither Button or Perez are strong Qualifiers.

If you talking reliabilty didnt Buttons Mclaren breakdown at Jerez with another fuel pump failiure?

How many times did the Mclaren retire last year from technical failiures?
