POLL: Is Mark Webber right?

Mark Webber reckons F1 is in danger of having too many winners in a single season - but do you agree?
Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber has suggested that F1 fans could be turned off by the prospect of multiple winners in a single season, claiming that they would prefer to have the title fought over by fewer contenders who ran at the front of the field on a regular basis.

Can this be true? Is there anyone out there upset at seeing two first-time winners in the opening five races of 2012? Frustrated at seeing Mercedes and Williams return to the top step of the podium? Angry at having the top five in the championship split by just 13 points when, at the same point in 2011, Sebastian Vettel was already 41 in front?

This is your chance to have your say, so is Mark Webber right? Bearing in mind that neither Lewis Hamilton or Kimi Raikkonen - or Webber himself for that matter - have won yet in 2012, cast your vote HERE, and feel free to leave your thoughts as well....

I think what Webber might be referring to is more the "crap shot" nature of what we have going on now. Winners? Yes, I would like a lot of them. However, the mystifying change of pace between one week to the next sort of makes me throw up my hands like "it's all a crapshot, why waste my time on it?" feeling. That said, I have the highest respect for the winning drives this year .. Maldonado's was worth watching for sure. It's more like Button off the pace of Hamilton, and Rosberg winning and then falling out of the top ten not long after, etc. I think some of the team members feel that way too. Like it's just one big crapshoot .. not who wins but rather what's the car going to be like today?

had some bad luck when he could have had some great results. What we need is consistency. Tyres need to be fast and consistent at speed for at least 15 laps. Does anyone remember some of the best seasons in the recent past? 2008, 2007, 2006. Even a team being dominant has created some great seasons. 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001. Just me 2 cents.
