L H goes from Mc' laren to Merc : Mc' laren has a Merc engine, and was the fastest car last season. So , the difference was overall construction of the car,yes ? So L H must have some idea about the construction required to improve the car, no, or am I missing something?

What's the big deal the stig can do a 46.3 sec lap in that Liana!!

Some say he's managed a 34 sec lap, while riding a pogo stick, all while being attacked by overgrown badgers

The thing is, they're all driving one of a couple of Suzukis, probably prepared exactly the same, so differences in the car can be ignored. This surely is a fantastic measure of a drivers ability, it's it not?
Richard,I didn't hear Rubens complaining about his steering wheel being on the wrong side either. Also, with the gaps between the drivers being little more than a couple of tenths, I would say a gap of over a second IS significant. Lewis went from near the back of the grid to third (before he was disqualified, but still passed Trulli fair and square as he was off the track) in Aus '09, so I expect Lewis to surprise a lot of his dislikers this year

ramjam. i did say that the "test" was all a bit of fun. and yes, barro did say that he wasnt used to driving on the right. in fact, every continental and american make the same comment. apart from that, do you know the track temperature, the ambient temperature, what tyres where used, amount of fuel carried etc etc. there are far too many variables to take any result seriously.
get over it, it will not have an iota of an effect on the wdc, and will probably be the only time that lulu is ahead of seb, this year.

i wonder, does he get to keep the trophy now? :D :D

ps the merc broke down AGAIN today!

jimmy. nothing defensive! just realism, which i wish the lulu idolisers would do with taking a dose of!

after all, lulu beat schumis time. does that make him greater than schumi? NO WAY!
