I know conspiracy theories are far fetched and this debate has raged online for some time now, but it just seems everytime Webber is remotely close to Vettel in practice and qualification, there is always a Kers issue or something to compromise Webbers progress.

I have said before and I will reiterate, how is it that a team as successful as Red Bull, multiple constructor and driver championship winners, still not be on top of their Kers issues and the multiple failures that have occurred. I take on board Newey's philosophy of not wanting to compromise aero performance, but surely sooner or later, this will come back to hurt them.

Thanks frws for your posting and i agree with the first
paragraph. All i would say on this one man team is
if any driver who has a good seat like Kimi he should stay
at Lotus..
Can't wait until they are on the back foot to whoever.

Mark shows how quick he is on Friday, even with a dodgy gearbox upshift. Add a KERS issue for Saturday and still only 0.8 off.
i imagine he may have a dodgy launch control issue come Sunday. Patronising Horner will cover off the questions as usual.
Hope Vettel makes an average start, and Grosjean wins!!
