praying for Marquez (who does have a tire advantage) to bring back that golden age of delusion.

no, pcxmac is not a fan bot, pcxmac appreciates honest dudes who appreciate excellence, I dont really care for fiction and racing either, there are more entertaining/stimulating things than watching manufactured drama or competition.

F1 is very close to the edge, only because it has enough competing interests, MotoGP is very monolithic in the interest department, almost bordering on severe totalitarianism with the 'spanish' interests dominating the class. The manipulation is very obvious. Control tires will never be cool, because its not an honest form of competition and has all the trappings of entertaining the potential for manipulation and control by an ever decreasing number of actors on the stage.

Competition is not a sin, unless your the one preaching it in order to manufacture fan bots.

First up, most of you know I am NOT a fan of Hamilton, but he drove a bloody good race and deserved the win.

Secondly, I have to laugh at everyone saying that Hamilton would spank Vettel if they were in the same car.

Really? If I recall, most of you on here call Button a slow midfield driver and Hamilton couldn't spank even him in the same car. In fact, if I remember, Button out scored Hamilton during their time as team mates.

So can someone please explain where this confidence that he would thump Vettel come from?

Having seen the interaction between Seb and Kimi on the podium yesterday, I think Kimi and Seb would be great together at Red Bull. Kimi is quite a few years older than Seb and as such Seb could learn more from Kimi than he could from Ricardo. It will not be a piece of cake for Seb to retain his world championship position with Kimi in the team, but it would make him an even better driver than he is already. I do not think Kimi would play second fiddle to Seb, so Seb would have a fight on his hands to come out on top. Kimi could offer a lot (both to Red Bull and Seb personally) and seeing as Seb (probably) has many more racing years ahead of him than Kimi, a partnership with Kimi for a year (or two) would, in the long run (and maybe also the short run) be very beneficial. So Kimi to Red Bull gets my vote.

Forget every thing else, If Kimi's cheques are really showing up late, give the team to RG and move on.

Sounds like they need a pay to drive more than a WDC contender
IMHO, love to see Williams get their act together with the new formula and sign Kimi, but thats just conjecture and wanting to see more teams fighting for the WCC/WDC

You wont find sensible Hamilton fans saying Jenson is a slow midfield driver.

Facts, Lewis has finished above a 2xwdc as a rookie which I believe has never been done, he has beaten the 2009 wdc two season to one and is now beating by 40 points the man that beat schumi the 7xwdc.
Now if Lewis has beaten two world champions in the same car one of them twice and is now beating Nico who has also beaten a champion three years in a row then there is a high probability that Lewis would do the same to Vettel in a similar car, not rocket science really.

I doubt if Kimi will go to Red Bull. He's got absolutely no manners and would not represent the Red Bull brand well, IMO. And there's always the danger that he may decide not to show up, just like in 2008 and 2009 (remember he did actually get fired by Ferrari). I enjoy his driving, I think he's probably the bravest driver in F1, apart from being one of the quickest. But his attitude sucks. He's got everything, has one of the best jobs in the world, and yet he makes this big show, liked he's so bored, every time he's asked a question! I find it tiresome.

Jesus! still the Hamilton Button comparisons go on and on!

As far as I remember Hamilton was easily the quicker of the 2 drivers but made more mistakes and had poorer reliability hence the Button outscored him over 3 years statistic.
But I think most people will agree and statistics show this to be correct. Hamilton beat Button 2-1 in champ positions, had more wins and blew Button away in qualifying. Hence in a few years he will probably go down in history as one of the best of all time and Button will be remembered like Massa, Coulthard, Rubens, Webber etc
