I guess that was supposed to be some sort of backhanded attack on Hamilton? All you need to do is look at McLaren's current form. It's not a coincidence that Lewis leaves, McLaren get a lot worse and Mercedes get a lot better.

Webber to premanatly retire. What is so special about Webber anyway? There are many other drivers that can take over from Webber with minimal fuss - Kobayashi / Heikki / Buemi / Jaime. Drivers who can step up and perform with less drama, whinging,and moaning.

I dont think Vettel will be there for too long and its time for RBR to bleed in new drivers. Webber has overstayed his welcome.

freejack. i can understand your support for your countryman, but if you really believe that there is or was no number 1 in macca, you are living in cloud cuckooland! there has always been a number 1 there. but would macca want him? they require their number 2 to obey THEIR team orders, and webber seems to be unable to accept these.

fake sunny. and now you are attributing mercs new form to lulu? and writing off macca as well??? did you not notice that button was hunting down the two mercs prior to the problem in the pits.

"button was hunting down the two mercs"

Let's not get carried away now. Its ok to joke sometimes, but this is an F1 forum....let's try to keep things serious.

"writing off macca as well"

The combination of twitmarsh and No Grip...I think the writings on the wall

Richards right, Button could have snatched a podium. Perez drove a decent race. After Mac finally fires the lug heads that put on the lug nuts, they can contend..

It still comes down to who can manage the worse tyres ever to see a race track

angie. you used to be quite humourous, but now you seem to be quite bitter. yes, macca made a big turn around in less than a week. the secret was accomplished with a fretsaw with which some of the rear floor was removed. this gave a fantastic lift in performance, and yes, button was up with the mercs, and due to their inability to maintain speed, and "team orders" button could well have beaten them. now, THAT is a big turn aroung, led by whitmarsh and button, who made no comment on grip (if you hadnt noticed.

Why is a proven cheat the subject of a piece on an F1 web-site? Who gives a crap what Briatore thinks?

Although, having said that, he is right, this year at Red Bull it's going to be like Senna/Prost, or Picquet/Mansell, two drivers with undisguised hatred of the other. The gloves are off. And Webber will be gone. But what of Seb. He made himself look just ridiculous, like a bloody child in fact, and I've always liked the guy. I have my doubts now. Great talent, but.....

OH, so something contraversional pops up and MR.Sleazebag gets all "now see here".

Flavio just go away, you are not liked by the F1 community,. Motor Sport or anybody else. You arranged an F1 racing CRASH, so Alonso would win. And you got chucked out of F1.

What ever bussiness you get into, we will stop supporting it.
