Maybe it is the right time for Crash to launch another poll (or a few related ones) based upon such questions :
- who will take the first non Mercedes dry pole
- who will break the Mercedes monopoly up front and when it is probably that such event might occur

Considering the Red Bulls are the only real team giving the Mercedes a hard time in Qualification at the moment, I would have to say it would be most like a Red Bull to break the Mercedes poles...

Rob, sure that all that counts for Vettel is his chances and nobody can blame him on that.
RBR did all it can to limit the damage by retiring DR with a perfectly running car because there was no hope of any points from him, the perceived advantage will be engine mileage and the use of a fresh gearbox, this is not recommended reading for those that all they can do is BRAY.

RBR has also been trying to limit damage inflicted upon itself by changing track with the ref (Horner having eaten back his words on “being forced to use their own flow measuring system again”) this time they done it as instructed by the FIA ON CAR 3 and avoided another 10 metres back or sin bin. But Toro Rosso will meet their big brothers at the court of appeal as they say their calculations are more accurate than those of the FIA pit-lane speed radar gun after being fined 1000 Euro.
