It all seems like a desperate ploy to find some excuse other than they were licked by a better team on the day.

Raikkonen drove a perfect race in Oz. Pushed when he had to, conserved when he could. He also had a bit of luck on the way too. But of all the drivers up front, he drove the best race. Vettel cooked his tyres too quickly, Massa couldn't seem to decide on a strategy. Alonso did his best but just couldn't get in the right position quickly enough. And to be hon
