Well Seb, while you broke the jinx last time out at Nurb, this time it was its turn to take a let's say soft revenge. You must admit that the front wing episode could have been resulted in a much more unconvenient story.
Ofcourse it is not easy to make a cool analysis, right after the fifty degree race, but, all in all, it will be fair to recognize, that there were two things which counted against you today: the wing and your early first pitstop, while hunted by Grosjean. Button only appeared as an unavoidable effect of the two causes. So every error comes at a price and that's the way it was today also.

Ofcourse he didn't and that was the case from the season's start, I would say. Mercedes could not have won so many poles and wins for nothing, could they ? Let alone the blistering Ferarris on the straights.
So RB may win the WC eventually but should they fail to find something new in the hat, over the winter, I'm afraid the gold story will come to an end.

Vettel thinks he can trust Kimi??? Trust him to what??? Kimi would just as soon run Vettel into the weeds as look at him ........ he's a true racer, a pirate. Never trust your back to a pirate.

Vettel would be wise to decline having the biggest snake on the grid as a team mate. If its true that Alonso went knocking on a drinks company door for a job it would be a huge slap in Ferrari's face.
