@Bob, sorry, but that is just laughable! ...

Anyone who has been watching F1 will clearly remember that Lewis was "borrowing" Jenson's set up data quite a few times last season ....

Lets also not forget that McLaren have been quite aggressive with their NEW chassis, whilst RedBull are racing what could be seen as a B Spec RB8 ... and lets not forget McLaren finished the season with the fastest car, with JENSON winning the last TWO races ...

I could go on ...

Correction. Lewis got rammed by Pastor in VALENCIA. He was still classified because he completed 90% of the race. However he didn't score a point.

Before anyone says "Hamiltons fault" I'd like to remind them that the stewards know better than us and rightfully punished Maldonado

Grosjean blasted him out in Spa.

This season is going to be hard to watch for macca fans, we've gone from always having one of the best 3 drivers on the grid to two second tier drivers and losing our title sponsor and possibly losing Mercedes engines, we'll be the new BAR jenson knows all about them

"If I recall rightly, last year Ferrari were in the EXACT same situation at the start of the season."

No, they were in a much better situation. Button can only dream about being a second off the pace setter in Q2. So far it looks like he'll be closer to three seconds off.

And of course, Ferrari were quite lucky in that other teams - notably Red Bull - also had considerable problems last year.

"2010. Hamilton was in the championship RIGHT TILL the last race in a car slower than Ferrari and Red Bull."

The claim was that Macca are currently missing Hamilton's expert guidance to the engineers in setting the car up properly, guidance which he supposedly provided them in 2010. So WHY was the car slower than Ferrari and Red Bull in 2010?
