Don't you love that though, its pc to lie to other people about your own self interest. Lies and distortions, and the potential for exploiting people's ignorance.

I think most of the drivers in F1 while might being some what envious of the level of support and car he drives, don't really care for him personally, there is something to earning your way up, and Vettel has been in the best car since the tail end of 2009. Nobody really wants to respect someone who has a car that is easily 2 seconds faster than anyone elses :) That car is much faster than anyone elses, only the tires are keeping it from being 2011+even worse.

The only good thing about next year, is it upset's Red Bull's domination, at least to a degree, but unfortunately they have the most money and investment and only one person to care about, so its not like it will take them too long to optimize their vehicle.

pcxmerc. I seem to recollect that you were claiming that merc would have 100 bhp more next year and so, bearing in mind that they would be able to use fuel at double the regulated fuel flow, and with extra large fuel tanks, so how are you now claiming that underpowered and underfuelled rbr will be on pace?

puzzled I is!

Richard, You just don't understand that it's all to do with F1 being a "political bargain" and a "communist totalitarian fascist regime" come to think of it I don't understand that clueless gobbledegook either!
