My comment wasnt just aimed at you Richard, but yes you do love to tell us how the aussies are not good enough for the RB seat, so you can take from that what you will. Dan has qualified his car sometimes up to a second faster than his teammate Richard, thats a spanking, and he's finished more races in front of his teammate so how you can say Vergne is the faster racer overall baffles me. Vergne has more points but they are from fewer race finishes, which just means he's had the odd race where things have gone his way. DR ran most of the race on harder tyres on the weekend (which were slower), and then changed to the options and passed his teammate on the way to points from 19th. I dont know what else the guy has to do to convince his doubters. They always say its easier to teach a fast guy to be a little conservative at times than to teach a slow guy how to be fast, and qualifying is about outright speed, unlike the races these days which are tyre conservation races.
