Richard,

You may be an F1 officianado, but your wine knowledge is not quite up to the same level. Please ask your local wine merchant about Grange. BTW, I am only sharing it with you and you need to come here to imbibe it with me.

It is Australia's version of a Chateau Latour or Chateau Margaux

I am all for giving everyone a fair go, and 3 races isn't really long enough to tell, but I reckon unless Perez gets his act together soon, there could be an opening at McLaren next year.

Would love to see Mark race for McLaren!

I think that a few young hopefuls might be rubbing their hands together at the prospect of Webber leaving RBR. He seems to have bought into the conspiracy BS as well.

For some reason bad luck has followed Webber throughout his F1 career. It has often been said that you make your own luck - be it good or bad.

I, for one, would relish seeing a young guy given a chance in the RBR top team.

Do people really believe in this? Why would it be in RB's interests to have one car failing to finish?

I agree Vettel is the blue eyed boy, but both cars need to finish well for the Constructors, and yes, vettel will generally beat Webber as unfortunate as that may be. The problem is that Horner doesn't control the team. They've won because Newey designed them a fantastic car with two good drivers. Horner can't control Vettel, which at the moment works because they are winning, see what happens once the car starts being beaten. Maybe this year Lotus & Ferrari will push RB backwards. To achieve the Ferrari dominance from the Schumacher years is not an easy thing to do year after year. A couple fo years maybe, but then everyone else catches up.

Redbull have spent massively on getting Vettel to F1, and thats why MW is treated as a number two behind the scenes. They cant have an old Aussie bloke make their investment look slow.
Webbers blew the doors off Seb this weekend in all practice sessions, until his race was messed up by various factors. This actually forced THE TEAM to saw part of Sebs bargeboards off to get him better balance, whilst no2 Mark was getting better lap times with his old winged car!! It says a lot for Mark I think......!?

yes, Christian Horner should just laugh it off instead of getting angry. He should know that this is gamesmanship employed by the competition.

He has done well bringing home 3 WCC as well as 3 WDC.

Tough job having to manage employee who has direct access to the big boss, and who, intentionally or otherwise, play into the competition's hand by dragging internal issues to the public.
