rob. are you actually trying to crack a joke? if there is a cracked chassis, then it will need to be replaced, just as others have received replaced chassis last year, this year etc.
what will you say when he starts winning with a new chassis?

Nico is just deflecting the pressure off Merc

I don't know what to think of Seb till next race day. Possible crack sounds like they're clinging on to anything in hope. If they said it is definitely cracked then it would make a lot of difference. I guess we'll just have to wait till Barcelona to find out if it was the chassis or him

The only thing we know for sure is that when the Merc's actually pushed, they could pull 2 seconds a lap on the field with out breaking a sweat. If Red Bull still have the best car by a fair margin than Merc have the best powerunits by a huge margin.

Real test should be in Monaco, but I doubt Merc will be troubled very much given their driver line up.

Considering Red Bull couldn't beat Alonso, I doubt their car is that much better. Ricciardo's big advantage is his ability to keep his tires, which comes down to setup, imo. Vettel being slower probably won't be a problem for much longer if Vettel applies himself accordingly and he decides to force himself to enjoy turning the wheel of a car that revs just a bit higher than your average sports car.

Should be interesting to see how Kimi does at Monaco, he will probably still suck at Barcelona.

Nico if I was an engineer at Mercedes your constant Red Bull is going to catch up would P-ss me off. Why not give credit to the guys who have given you a great car and big them up. Same for your team-mate as well.

@rob01

OMG! You have finally mastered how to write Red Bull properly, without childish names and capital letters no less. Most impressive and commendable. Now all you need to figure out is how to write the reigning F1 world champion's name with the respect he's entitled, you may just become a new born man. :)

Hint: Vettel, and I have faith in you so keep up the good work.
