what a snorefest F1 has become. I won't bother to watch another procession, just read the race results here. The only way to make F1 entertaining again is to abandon qualifying and make championship leader to start from the back of the grid. Second driver - penultimate and so on. May the best driver win? not mr finger in the best car.

Being a bit unfair on Vettel , not his fault he is driving by far the best car and is just running away with the 2013 tittle, and there have been some good racing amongst the midfield with top teams so f1 not that boring we just have to give credit to Red Bull engineers who know how to manipulate the engine valves in order to gain an advantage.

Stfubritish, Your plea reminds me of La Forza Del Destino, for the second drivers generation in a row it had to be a b***dy German KID to shatter all hopes of some of the one eyed British fan boys and their associates from down under for their perceived hero to be totally bulldozed aside and denned the chance of joining the few called greats of F1.

@ 107, yes I heard about that one which is using the standing current from the KERS, as there is no designated time to use KERS there is talk of Red Bull figured a way how to use harvesting phase to modulate output torque on corner exits. The good thing with this its not there to reduce wheel spin so it cant be classed as illegal. I think the modulation is being done by the extending and contracting of the shocks hence the modulation.

It hurts me to say it because I detest the guy, but even with a technically superior car you've still got to drive the thing and BogeyFinger does just that.

There may just be some backlash when the other manufacturers catch up technically - Vettel's been handing out free advanced driving lessons for a couple of years now, honing the skills of the rest of the field to a fine edge. Alonso, in particular, has pulled off some amazing drives in a car that simply doesn't have the moxie. The Mechanical Hamilton's had to grow up a bit quick, too - not a bad thing at all. He'll go on to rallying or soapboxing or something a more rounded and chastened character. But my money's with Raikonnen, both ways, for next year.

Praying for rain to make a race of it, otherwise I'll just put the lap timing on the bottom bar and do something interesting, like work on an interminable book on the weather in the 16th centry I'm editing right now........
