From autosport on the 29th of July 2012, an article entitled Mercedes blames lack of performance in long corners for Hungary qualifying woes. Read Ross Brawns verdict, or you must be more clued up than Ross. As for the 'hungry', i could suggest where you insert the 'a', but i think you can figure that out for yourself. you need to loosen the belt on your Tightpants, your 'anyone but hamilton' crap is as retarded as the 'anyone but vettel/alonso/(insert your own)' brigade.

Ross Brawn is a particularly bright chap but I don't him to tell me how long a corner is as I have functioning eyes.

If the corners at the Hungaro ring are long how would you (and Ross) describe the Curva Grande, Pouhon, Blanchimont, 130R, etc etc?

Tightpants, you've named corners from circuits that mercedes have been struggling at for three years, you missed out turn three in Spain, previous best result left them around 50 seconds behind the winner. they appear to have improved on that circuit too, before the secret test. i also think you missed the word 'need' out of your post, but you would know that wouldnt you :-D:-D

I listed some long corners, I base that on the length of the corner not how well a Mercedes goes round them!
Do we have to re-evaluate the length of all things based on a Mercedes F1 car.
Quite a long way to the Moon but we cant be certain until Lulu takes his Merc, uses his "supernatural driving skills" (thanks for that one Dricer ) and measures it for us!

While Hamilton certainly has the talent to contend for the WDC, he faces a difficult road ahead. Seb Vettel has a significant point lead and benefits from being a clear #1 on the best team in F1. Not only is the RB adaptable to a wider variety of circuits, but the Red Bull team seldom makes mistakes and always seems able to come up with extra speed when challenged by the others.

For Hamilton to close the gap he needs not only wins, but both Ferrari and Lotus to steal points from Vettel as well. While Alonso and Raikkonen are capable, I have my doubts that Lotus (lack of funds) and Ferrari (tech support) are up to the task.

Stranger things have happened in the past, but I feel we will see a continuance of Red Bull's late season dominance after the break. As Kimi says "WewillseeIthinksoyes."
